June Couple of the Month

This June we are reminiscing over Nora and Joe's stunning Fall wedding. The bride and groom sparkled through the rain of the day. We loved Nora's elegant a-line dress with a lace bust and silky off-white skirt, with a ribbon accentuating her waist. She looked euphoric, sophisticated, and purely over-the-moon! Accents of yellow, orange, and plum accompanied the beautiful ceremony and reception. 

Nora and Joe had this to say about working with the Bisou team:

I am not sure where to begin. My husband and I went back and forth on whether or not we needed a wedding planner and I managed to win the debate. A colleague had recommended Sarah so I reached out and from the moment I spoke to her on the phone, I felt a sense of ease. I knew Sarah and her team were top notch just from our initial phone call.

Sarah and I met in person a few weeks before the wedding and she made me feel so comfortable - it felt like I was getting coffee with a friend. I shared our vision for the day with Sarah and left our meeting knowing she would help make it happen. Sarah was on top of reaching out to all of our vendors to create a timeline and plan for the weekend.

Sarah came to our rehearsal and in that moment, I put all trust into Sarah for the rest of the weekend. She knew our plans inside and out and was so friendly to our wedding party, family, and friends who were a part of the mass.

And then came the wedding....I wish I could sum into words the calmness I felt when Sarah arrived. It was pouring rain outside but she came in like a ray of sunshine. Sarah kept us on schedule and helped all of my bridesmaids off the bus with her umbrella so they did not get wet and made sure we were all smiling despite the sideways rain and high winds. While we were at the church, Sarah’s assistant Maria was at the venue making sure everything was setup properly and everything was exactly where we wanted it to be.

Sarah and Maria were there if any of us needed anything that night and I honestly feel like we had the best day ever because of them. By the end of the night, they felt like family. They went above and beyond in every detail and I plan on recommending them to anyone I know. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, I would highly suggest working with Sarah and her team....I promise you it is worth it.

The next day, Joe said that hiring Sarah was the best decision we made besides getting married so I think that says it all!

March Couple of the Month

Bisou's March Couple of the Month features Megan and Matt's beautiful Saratoga Canfield Casino Wedding. As always, we were blown away by the understated, simple color palette made up of nudes, whites, and greenery. The classically romantic design brought us back to an Audrey Hepburn era, and Megan's wedding gown was the icing on the cake! There is no doubt that Jenn Moak Photography captured them at their BEST!!!  

Megan and Matt had this to say about working with Bisou: 

Sarah and her team were absolutely amazing. I participated in the “day of” wedding planning with Sarah. I was reluctant at first as I felt I had already done so much work (finding my vendors, establishing time frames), but someone recommended that a wedding planner would help with making sure the day went smoothly. They were right! So many little things that would have made my day beyond stressful (on top of the stress already), Sarah and her assistant were there to take care of them. From tracking down employees who were supposed to unlock my venue for setup, knowing to ask the hotel to utilize their steamer to press bridesmaid dresses and scarves, sewing my bridesmaid’s ripped dress, to standing out in the cold during pictures to hold my shawl and veil...Bisou did it all. Sarah mapped out at a detailed timeframe for all my vendors (hair/make-up, videographer, photography, food, music, priest) and reached out to all of them to ensure we were all on the same page. This took away the majority of my stress in the days leading up to the wedding. She is so organized, so calming, and such a pleasant person to have by your side on your wedding day. Thank you Bisou Weddings and Events!

February Couple of the Month

With another new month in another new year, comes another new Bisou couple of the month. This February we think back to beautiful fall weather and the happiest of days for Jeana and Kevin at their chic, intimate Fort William Henry Wedding. Elegant white calla lillies accompanied fall-inspired burnt orange and lavender decor. How stunning! 

Jeana and Kevin had this to say about their experieince with Bisou:

Working with Bisou Weddings and Events was the best decision we could have made. Like everyone was telling us, the final weeks before the wedding are extremely stressful, and having Sarah in our corner was a complete blessing. She nailed down the timeline, coordinated vendors, and was available for last minute questions/advice. The wedding day went extremely well, and we are confident in saying our day wouldn’t have been anywhere near the same without her and her team.

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!
