New Year's Resolutions

2010 was filled with milestones at Laurie Arons Special Events. We formed a new partnership with celebrity Chef Tyler Florence and added a stunning private estate in the Napa Valley to our exclusive venues list. (Not to mention, we planned so many fabulous events this year, everywhere from Palm Beach to Napa!). With 2011 fast approaching, I thought it would be fun to share with you all of the places I am hoping to work in the new year. Part of what I love about being a wedding planner is experiencing all of the new and exciting places around the world where spectacular weddings can take place. Here's to resolutions! See you in the new year! xo Photo by Meg Smith.

* Blackberry Farm - a charming, gourmet farm retreat in Walland, Tennessee
* Brush Creek Ranch- a stunning property as grand as the Western sky in Saratoga, Wyoming
* Blue Hill at Stone Barns - a gorgeous barn location in Pocantico Hills, New York
* The Rock House at Harbour Island - a pristine beach front property on Harbour Island, Bahamas
* Inn at Palmetto Bluff - a classic Auberge resort in Bluffton, South Carolina
* Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc - a breathtaking grand estate hotel in Antibes, France

Love Story: Jason + Laura

We're so excited to share Jason and Laura's gorgeous Sausalito wedding with you in the new year, but until then, we thought we'd share the Love Story that the talented Joe Perez of Jose Francisco Creative put together. Aren't they the cutest? xo
