November Couple of the Month

November's Couple of the Month is Kate and Nate, who celebrated their winter wedding ceremony at the National Museum of Dance and their beautiful reception at the Canfield Casino. Cozy golds accompanied homey greens for a warm ambiance that embraced guests. They used branches, berries, and greenery mingled with the elegance of fine china, roses and candles. All the makings of the perfect celebration for any gal who loves the breathtaking beauty of winter woods!

Kate and Nate had this to say about working with Bisou:

Having Sarah with us on our wedding day ensured that the only thing we had to worry about was soaking up every amazing moment. From the moment we hired her I felt instantly relieved that no detail would be forgotten. After the wedding my mom said, “You get the wedding you plan.” And she was right. With Sarah’s help everything was planned out perfectly so that we could enjoy our day. I cannot think of a single thing that went wrong, and if anything did gone awry, Sarah still hasn’t told us! I’m thrilled to see Sarah a couple times a year from here on out because all of my friends are now using her as well!

October Couple of the Month

This month we welcome fall by highlighting Lauren and Alex's picture-perfect wedding at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs, NY. Their wedding day was impossibly romantic, flawless, and classic... the perfect farewell to summer. Other highlights include a beautifully personalized ceremony surrounded by friends and family, an idyllic reception ballroom glowing with luscious linens and the warmth of endless candle light, dreamy florals and muted-tones, and a swoon worthy dress we are still talking about.

Lauren and Alex had this to say about working with Bisou:

From my very first phone call with Sarah I knew she would be the wedding planner for us. As both our wedding consultant and day-of coordinator Sarah provided innovative ideas, suggestions for vendors, and timelines to stick to. Sarah’s calming (when you’re stressed), yet energetic (when you need it) personality is contagious. Her warmth and expertise allow you to really enjoy each moment of the wedding planning. As for the big day, she’ll be everything you need, before you know you need it. Your wedding party will know where to go and vendors taken care of while you and your new spouse are absorbing every minute of your wedding day.

Through the months of planning, Sarah became much more than a wedding planner to our family. She’s a friend and wedding expert you won’t want to be without!

The National Museum of Dance is located in a historic building in the Saratoga Spa State Park.

All of which offer a unique venue experience for any wedding or special event. The classical architecture of this historic building creates an unforgettable ambiance that will be cherished in memories for years to come.

September Couple of the Month

This month we say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall by highlighting Cameron and Brian's picture-perfect wedding at Saratoga National Golf Club  in Saratoga Springs, NY. Their wedding was out of a fairytale, and despite the rain, Cameron and Brian along with their family and loved ones had the time of their lives. The stunning fuchsia bridesmaid dresses were perfectly accented by the muted and warm florals. The venue's incredible views and soft overcast lighting made for some picture perfect weather, and we managed to have clear skies long enough to capture some gorgeous outdoor portraits. This wedding was one for the books, and we loved every moment spent with this couple and their incredible families. 

Cameron and Brian had this to say about working with the Bisou team: 

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Bisou. Sarah and her team is professional, well prepared for everything, and a collection of warm and friendly faces that want nothing more than to help. More than anything, I was so happy with how the day of details came together so nicely. Nothing was missed. Sarah was amazing at anticipating the needs of everyone around her, including my bridal party and other vendors. She had Advil when I had a headache and a safety pin for one of my bridesmaids when her button came undone. All of the small details that make up a wedding could not have come together like they did without Sarah and Bisou. I would recommend Bisou to anyone in the area that needs a wedding coordinator! She is the BEST!

A Fanciful Garden Party

From the moment we met Aubree and Alex, we fell in love with their whimsy, giggly and super fun personalities. Their fanciful garden party themed wedding was enhanced by many DIY personal additions, as well as their effortless sense of style. One of our all time favorite handmade items was the beautiful arbor Alex built from scratch (amazing!). Thankfully the weather held out long enough for their outdoor ceremony at Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga Springs and Alex's arbor was the perfect addition.

The party continued at The Mansion Inn of Saratoga, and the DIY touches didn't stop there. From their window pane seating chart hanging from a tree, to the clusters of bud vases filled with every color flower imaginable, to the banner hanging from a vintage suitcase which carried the guest cards. It was the little details (which were so them) that made their day memorable, so much fun, and oh so magical. Aubree and Alex's wedding day will always hold a special place in our hearts.
