Inspired to bring your BIG IDEAS to Life!

Wedding services, event design and detail coordination

The ring is on your finger, the date has been chosen and the venue booked. Now on to the details. What if someone else could handle those details so that you could enjoy being the “guest of honor” at your own wedding? Inked Events provides more than just “Day of Wedding” coordination services. From full wedding planning and execution, to the planning and deployment of your bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner and wedding party gift bags. Our expertise can be your peace of mind.

Full Planning

From booking venues and caterers following your spectacular engagement to delivering payment to the final vendors as they pack up after an amazing reception (and everything in between) our full planning service leaves you free to dream and enjoy. We bring our ideas and experiences to help you to make the best selections for your big day. Th day is all about YOU, but the work of planning doesn’t have to be!

Partial Planning

You’ve booked the venue and met with a few vendors. The big stuff is out of the way – but wow, it’s way too much work to do alone! We assist with selecting the final vendors and making suggestions for detailed items, based on your preferences and vision for your special day.

Wedding “Day of” Coordination

The hard work of planning the wedding is taken care of, but all those pieces need to be pulled together on event day. Every couple should be able to enjoy the guests and activities, but coordinating vendor arrivals, last minute set-ups and the handful of snafus that are bound to occur can take away from the fun. Let us handle those headaches so you can be stress free.

Social Events & Celebrations

Maybe you are too focused on the wedding day to let the other tasks like engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, post wedding brunch, guest activities, welcome bags, or showers slow you down. Luckily, our willing and able staff can help with all of that. We’ll meet to share your vision then, based on your direction, create the perfect pairings to your wedding celebration.

Decorations, Décor and Giveaways

Looking for that special centerpiece or magical element to highlight your theme? We can help. Our vendor partners never let us down, and can make even the most unique bloom request a reality.  Tying it all together, our linen rental program will provide the perfect match.

That’s why you need us

Our mission is to provide you with a worry-free and enjoyable experience – from beginning to end. We get to know you personally, understand your vision and your needs, providing the wedding you dreamed up yourself, without all the work and preparation it takes to execute it alone. No two weddings are ever alike, and we pride ourselves on customizing our services to fit your needs.  Contact us to see if your wedding date is available.

Jenn & Greg’s Elegant Country Wedding

What better way to start off the new year than reminisce about the last one especially when it has to do with weddings!

There’s nothing like ending the wedding season with an elegant country wedding on another perfect New England fall day! I swear I have the luckiest couples that seem to order up the perfect weather on their wedding day…Jenn & Greg were no different!

THE BACKSTORY

I had the pleasure of meeting Jenn & Greg almost a year before their wedding. She originally contacted me to just set up her reception since Jenn is a very Type A personality and felt she couldn’t do it herself. She felt she couldn’t get it done exactly the way she wanted & enjoy the pre-ceremony fun at the same time.

After getting to know Jenn via email & literally hitting it off before we even spoke a word to each other, we decided to schedule our initial meeting. We met on a winter night last January and that’s when the similarities between us really came out, to where Greg said, “if I wasn’t sitting here witnessing this, I wouldn’t have believed it.”

Needless to say, our meeting went fabulous and I was very excited about their wedding. I did explain to them that if they decided to upgrade to our Day Of Coordination service, I would need to know beforehand since I was leaving for a bridal conference the next day. I didn’t want my flight arrangements to conflict with their wedding!

A few days later, I got an email from Jenn telling me that Greg couldn’t stop talking about me on the way home from our meeting, how crazy similar we are and how much help I could be for her. In other words, he was trying to convince her that they needed to find it in their budget to have me as their Day Of Coordinator {she already knew she wanted me there!}. As they say, the rest is history….

THE DETAILS

 

Jenn & Greg were married on a sunny, chilly November day in a Catholic ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Claremont, NH.

I finally had the pleasure of working with Steve Holmes Photography and he sure didn’t disappoint with his stunning photos! Thank you Steve for providing all the gorgeous eye candy!

Their reception was held at one of my {many} favorite venues, Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH. I would be lying if I didn’t say that I wasn’t worried about the 1-hour ride that was between the two locations during the planning process.

Thanks to my amazing team, I was able to literally be in two places at once! While I was with Jenn & Greg at the ceremony, my team took care of the last minute details at the reception location. It always helps when we are fortunate enough to be able to set up some of the reception room the day before too!

The wedding theme was based on the Damask pattern and their colors were black & white. Jenn wanted an elegant country wedding and Stonewall Farm was the perfect choice for that.

Jenn’s dress was absolutely stunning and she just glowed in it! I really couldn’t wait for Greg to see her in it!

Being huge baseball fans, it was only appropriate their cake topper reflected that part of their personalities.

We hung black & white lanterns across the main reception area to create a romantic feel to the room and it was the perfect setting to have the fire lit in the huge stone fireplace which again I’m kind of bummed I don’t have a picture to share of it!

My most enjoyable of many moment was to see Greg’s face when I told him he had “his” fire in the fireplace. He was under the impression he couldn’t have one which of course is what Jenn & I led him to believe. It was absolutely PRICELESS! He really did look like a kid getting the cool, new toy on Christmas morning. {Image taken by Inked Events}

Jenn is very creative and made the centerpieces herself. She brought the country in by using mason jars with diamond marbles to help display the table number & a photo of them that was surrounded with votive candles & soap. {Image taken by Inked Events}

They wanted their guests to have a little snack on their way back to the hotel or home, so they decided to have a candy bar. {Image taken by Inked Events}

They also had a unique guestbook that was a canvas picture of a tree and each guest used an ink stamp to leave a thumbprint on a branch of the tree to represent a leaf. I’m bummed I don’t have a picture of that to show you, it was pretty cool!

Stonewall is such a beautiful place for a wedding for so many reason, but this is one of them! It has this gorgeous stairway that is perfect for a photo op!

Plus, you just can’t go wrong with the outdoor pictures either…..

WEDDING WITHDRAWALS
No matter how long or short we begin working together, I really do get so involved with my couples that when the wedding is over, I have withdrawals. Thankfully my couples are my friends even afterwards, so it’s not the “end” for us.

To see the love Jenn & Greg share was wondrous to witness and beyond words.

I developed such a wonderful relationship with Jenn, Greg and their son, Dominic over the last year that I was just so ecstatic to have been part of their wedding day. To have seen them both really enjoy their wedding was absolutely priceless for me.

Here are some of the kind words Jenn wrote about working with me:

“Tracy was absolutely amazing!!! I had the pleasure of working with Tracy for eleven months while planning my wedding and she was right there every step of the way, guiding me through every last detail. A million thank you’s will never amount to the thanks she truly deserves. I can go on and on about how grateful I am for choosing Inked Events. Bottom line, I can promise you…no one can do what this woman can do!!!”

Aww…shucks…thank you both for the kind words and for allowing me to share in your love & family! XO
