My post this week was a little postponed because I’ve been anxiously awaiting the official reveal from the Reverie Gallery New England Soiree, and it was finally released yesterday so now I get to gush about it myself!! I had the privilege of attending the exclusive soiree two weeks ago and let me tell you – it was AWESOME. Reverie Gallery is an up-and-coming polished wedding blog for the savvy and stylish soon-to-be-wed that was founded by a Nutmegger like myself!! That means a Connecticut-er, in case you didn’t know. Which of course means I love it all the more. Plus, they run the gamut by featuring a broad array of inspirational posts and showcasing vendors so that there’s something for all the savvy and stylish couples! I came across Reverie Gallery through the Rising Tide Society and knew then that it would be a great place to meet fun new friends in the industry.
Now, on to the fun details of the soiree. The partay was at none other than the Wadsworth Mansion, pictured above courtesy of Michelle Gardella. It’s a Connecticut architectural masterpiece and event venue that I have always wanted to visit. The space is so versatile and has great indoor-outdoor flow what with its so many gorgeous French doors leading out to their expansive lawns. You could even attach a tent to the exterior, extending the main gallery space footprint. Which is exactly what WPE did for the soiree – the bar and part of the cocktail area were under the tent, forcing people to mingle and flow through the space.
William Parkinson Events hit it out of the park (pun! because the mansion is in a park…??) with their event design and execution. Everything was flawless. Purple and blue uplighting set the mood and there were so many lavish details like ghost chiavari chairs, a mirrored bar, gold foil cocktail napkins, white leather lounge furniture, beautiful florals, and delectable nibbles. Seriously, the food. Hit the spot after my two hour drive from Westchester to the mansion. Forks & Fingers had lobster macaroni and cheese cupcakes, Asian noodles with spring rolls and kebabs served in mini take-out boxes, and Lovely Cakes had a delicious assortment of sugary goodies (which I proceeded to stuff myself with…) in addition to a jaw-dropping cake branded for Reverie Gallery.

How could I get this far without mentioning the entertainment?! It was off the hook! A living statue welcomed us at the registration table and a belly dancer in a peacock costume (with multiple costume changes afterward) was just beyond. What a way to welcome guests! Plus a live STOMP-esque band performed some majorly fun tunes. And the flash tattoos!! One of my favorite trends! There was a whole station devoted to it and you better believe I got a super cute one right on the inside of my wrist. My husband disagrees since he doesn’t like any form of tattoo, but at least it wasn’t a permanent one, right?! And I totally drooled over the two ethereal gowns on display from The White Dress by the Shore and A Little Something White Bridal Couture.
