Happy 1st Anniversary Kelly & Rick!

Happy 1st Anniversary to our amazing couple Kelly and Rick! In honor of their anniversary,  take a look back at their beautiful wedding day at Giorgio’s Baiting Hollow in this little highlight video we created. Special thanks to our good friends over at The Studio Photographers for capturing these stunning shots. Congratulations also goes out to the couple as they welcomed their first son Andrew in August! Best wishes to the happy family!

On September 18th, Kelly McCreary and Rick Caso were wed at Giorgio’s Baiting Hollow out on Long Island. With the sun shining bright, the couple had the perfect weather for their outdoor ceremony. Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple had an an amazing ceremony out on the garden patio at Giorgio’s, overlooking the golf course.  The ceremony also featured a butterfly release in honor of Kelly’s late sister, Diana. It was such a beautiful touch – and an incredibly emotional moment. It was then off to the reception, where everyone was out on the dance floor dancing the afternoon away to celebrate the marriage of this special couple. The entire day was flawless and everyone had a great time! It was a pleasure working with Kelly and Rick – we wish them all the best!

Words cannot describe how thankful we are for your amazing talent!  Thanks to you we had the most beautiful reception anyone has ever seen.  Our friends and family cannot stop saying how incredible the centerpieces, cocktail hour décor, signature drink signs, and table numbers were.

“Greatest Marriage Proposal EVER”? Well, it’s certainly the cutest!

This viral YouTube video might just make your future hubby jealous! A Georgia man, Matt Still, decided to get creative when proposing to his true love, Ginny Joiner. Matt hired a professional videographer to make his cinematic proposal come to life. He also enlisted the help of the local movie theater which allowed him to play the first part of the proposal on the big screen.

Matt tricked Ginny into going to the movies with her brother while he was “at work”. First, two actual movie trailers come on the screen. Then- the proposal begins!

What Ginny doesn’t know is that the movie theater is actually filled with her family and friends, and a videographer is shooting her during the whole proposal.

We give this proposal a thumbs up, but you might need to grab some tissues before watching!

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Finishing Touch!

Now That’s Some Sweet Stationery!

In the latest issue of (201) Bride, one of our custom invitations (seen above) served as inspiration for a cake creation made exclusively for the featured article! This vintage style invitation was created for a client who was looking for a classic feel that was clean and unique but not ornate. The cake was styled with the peekaboo border of black and white toile as the inspiration. Each tier of the red velvet cake (with cream cheese filling – yum!) featured the black floral pattern that was hand painted onto the ivory fondant. Thanks to Mazur’s Bakery for this amazing creation!
