The skies cleared in Newport with plenty of time for Brittany and Patrick to get married outside along the famous waterfront. Boston Pollen arrived with a VAN full of stunning tropical florals and DJ Peter O’Karma rolled in with his vinyl records ready to roll. Team Hummingbird was in rare form offering “flossing” tutorials to anyone who wasn't clear on the new dance move in between designing the tablescapes and managing the timeline, and Mikhail Glabets, one of my all-time fave photographers captured every gorgeous moment of this super fun day.Read More
So many thanks to Stop Go Love Videography for this absolutely gorgeous video recap of Amira and Karan’s Rehearsal Dinner Celebration and Wedding Day at Club Getaway in Kent, CT this past September. We are full-on “ugly crying” happy tears over this beautiful video!
Amira and Karan’s Rehearsal Dinner Celebration featured an amazing umbrella installation across the ceiling from Powerstation Events (you’ve got to see it to believe it) and after this lovely rehearsal dinner (featuring 150 guests) concluded, we cleared out the tent and started over with a completely different wedding day design featuring garlands of greenery from Whiled Flowers, a 10-piece band from 45 Riots, strands of warm Edison lights and multiple outfit changes from Amira and Karan.
I want to do a Bharat at every event now! OMG, so fun!!!
Special thanks for Best of Boston winner, Maryelle Artistry for making everyone sparkle on the wedding day, to Henna By Elyse for the beautiful henna designs, and to Leah Hewitt Photography who was such a joy to work with!

William Allen Farm in Pownal, Maine set the perfect backdrop for this event and Elizabeth Laduca (just named Best of Boston by Boston Weddings) captured every quiet moment and personal detail of the day.Read More

This was the third opportunity that we have had in the past year to partner with the divine team from Uncommon Feasts to design a pop-up feast to celebrate the season.

Picture it: Floor-to-ceiling windows in an all-white building that sits directly on the waterfront in Newport. Long white curtains blow in the breeze of the open doors and cool salty air floats across the grassy lawn that leads down to the water. But the sunsets are the real gem at this venue.Read More
It's not often (ok, it's never...) that I get in front of a camera. I prefer to be behind the scenes doing the styling, design and conceptual work, but given my current state (7 months pregnant) and the fact that I am very blessed to know so many talented photographers and stylists, it seemed only fitting that for once I would give myself over to the vulnerability and excitement of being in front of a professional camera.Read More
Aldworth Manor, a crumbling long-lost Italian villa set the hauntingly beautiful backdrop for our styled wedding shoot.

I recently had the extreme honor of meeting with News Macarons founder, Hannah Foerster, to discuss women in business and the challenges of starting and maintaining your own business.
Hannah has a gift for drawing extreme honesty out of her interviewees, and in doing this interview I found that I could comfortably share the fears and challenges that we faced as my husband and I established Hummingbird Bridal and Events together.
To read the full interview and to understand more about who we are and how we truly came to be, read Hannah's full interview here: https://newsmacarons.com/mandy-connor-hummingbird-bridal/
A very special thank you to Hannah for giving us the opportunity to share our story, and my deepest thanks to all of the strong and empowered women who have served as inspiration and mentors to me as I navigate my own journey. As Hannah summarized, "it's important that we focus on the light that we generate together." (Photo courtesy of Alexandra Roberts.)
Steph wanted a hip, modern, urban chic downtown wedding. Brennan had his heart set on a classic, idyllic New England sophisticated Estate wedding. So what did they do? They did both. In one day. The ceremony was held at Barcelona in Boston and the reception was held at The Crane Estate.Read More
