The 2007 KPW Holiday Party!

Here are a few shots from our Holiday Party- we really are quite the crowd right? We had a Yankee Swap of the worst Holiday gift you could find for under 5 dollars and the winner by far was a fruitcake that you'll see was in fact eaten... so disgusting if you ask me. The best was the next day when Chef Felix made us custom omelets- fabulous!

Style-specific Welcome Baskets

We're really excited to share this with all of you. We have been creating city and state specific welcome baskets for the past year and although they are really fantastic, some brides just don't have the budget for baskets that cost upwards of $36.00 a piece. Because of this dilemma, we've decided to create a lower priced welcome basket that is still semi-customizable. Each basket contains a custom welcome letter, med kit, two bags of cape Cod potato chips, two packs of Bellow's House cookies, and two bottles of Lil' Fiji water. The container and overall style of the basket is tailored to the style of your wedding- urban, beachy, traditional, or natural. Check out our website soon to see more details!

Lola Parker Photo of the Week

Lola recently went through her second knee surgery, recovering from a Luxating Patella- very common in small dogs... Here are a few photos of her adventures with her cast.... more to come!

Kate Mann, or as we call her "Mann"

Meet Kate Mann. Yes she might be the most organized person I've ever met and she is fabulous at double and triple banding but nothing compares to her ability to model potential lacrosse uniforms.... check out that pose!

We love Stacey Kane!

One of our very favorite photographers is Stacey Kane from Scarborough Maine. Stacey gets ALL of our details and all the emotion of the wedding day. Here are a few example slideshows from two our summer weddings. Both were very different designs and very different clients but Stacey's work was fabulous at both- as you will see. Enjoy!

New Custom Welcome Baskets

We make lots of welcome baskets for clients across the country but we always forget to photograph the final product... here are a few of our recent custom baskets for Asheville NC and the Berkshires of MA.

KPW in Action

As we mentioned before, sometimes we have to do some pretty crazy things for our clients. Here we are at the Home Depot cutting our very own pieces of wood that will be used for a fabulous wedding this weekend. We'll post more photos of this project as it progresses....

The Welcome Reception

Lots of our brides ask us to create fun and casual welcome receptions instead of (and sometimes in addition to) the more traditional rehearsal dinner. Here are a few photos of a Welcome Reception we designed for a summer wedding.

The Crew

So, every weekend we have a new project, whether it's lighting a 30' pine tree or custom folding 225 linen hemstitch napkins. Enter the crew... my fabulous summer staff who work hard and play hard and keep us laughing all the while. Check them out on our meet the team page at coming soon!

The things we do for our clients

Just to show you how far the KPW staff is willing to go, including Kate Parker (yes that's her behind the branches.)

One of our favorite bouquets

This is such a beautiful color combination that we thought you might enjoy.

All about Jon....

So, even though he is my brother and he also has the most incredible sense of packing large amounts of vases into very small spaces, he ALSO happens to be great at singing in the middle of the work day. Basically, he's a FINE CHOICE all the way around.

The KPW Staff working hard...

Although 95% of the time you would find the KPW Staff running around making magic happen, there are occasions that we get to relax a bit....
