August Couple of the Month

This August we're highlighting Alexis and Chris as our Bisou couple of the month!  This wedding was full of fun personal touches from fun fact napkins to an adorable cake topper.  Alexis and Chris had a beautiful ceremony held at St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church with their family and friends in attendance. After a breathtaking photo shoot with the wedding party at Yaddo Gardens, everyone headed to Saratoga Polo to celebrate the newly weds!  All in all it was an incredibly fun summer wedding and we are thrilled to feature Alexis and Chris!

Alexis and Chris had this to say about their Bisou experience:

Guests told us that I was one of the happiest brides they have ever seen and that is definitely because of Sarah and her team at Bisou. Thanks to Sarah’s amazing organizational skills our day ran extremely smoothly and even ahead of schedule; even our priest said he never had a rehearsal run as smooth as ours. It is because of her wonderful personality and organizational skills that vendors love working with her and this definitely helped us have amazing vendors and an amazing day. So many guests commented on how wonderful Sarah and her team were and that she definitely changed their perceptions on wedding planners. We could not imagine our wedding without Sarah and Bisou!

The First Look

We had so much fun at Jenny and Nick's wedding this past weekend!  Every detail was perfect and beautiful, and it was impossible not to smile in the presence of this wonderful couple.  One detail that made the rest of the day so relaxed, was their decision to do a first look.  First looks have been growing in popularity and for years, and for a good reason.  Opting for a first look rather than hiding the bride until she walks down the aisle allows for couples to take a great deal of pictures before the ceremony begins.  Couples are able to capture all of the shots together (and if time allows, with their families and wedding parties) while not taking time away from their precious time with their guests during cocktail hour. A first look also allows for the couple to share and savor that special moment with some privacy.  Although there is nothing wrong with having the first view of the bride be while she's walking down the aisle, the convenience of a first look makes a lot of sense.  Jenny and Nick chose to share this special moment in private, but the pictures look magical!  We wish these two a life full of love and laughter!

Incredible Outdoor Wedding Tent Reception

With a crop of different types and styles, it's never been easier to personalize your wedding tent to your taste and theme. With a ton of customizable options like lighting, weather protection, and structure styles, tents are the perfect way to bring all the comforts of the indoors straight to your outdoor wedding! 

And just because you a have a tent, doesn't mean you're limited on wedding décor. Couples can choose between enclosed "room in a room" structures with removable walls or breezy high-top tents perfect for a sunny post-wedding brunch. Coastal couples will love the airy style of sailcloth tents that boast high ceilings and and an open-space feel that's perfect for easy mingling. If you're going for a glamorous, black-tie evening, you should consider elegant fabrics draped across the ceilings with a crystal chandelier hanging overhead. Couples looking for something more minimal can opt for a clear marquee tent decorated with twinkling café lights or hanging greenery garlands for a more bohemian touch, like Bisou's very own couple- Delilah and Javier!

Delilah and Javier had a breathtakingly beautiful outdoor tented reception that's straight from our dreams. It gave off a chic, bohemian vibe while also being warm, inviting, and downright comfortable! Look at those couches! The rows of twinkle lights within the tent provided a shimmering, fairytale setting for the happy couple!
