Although we would not consider ourselves to be the most “traditional” event planning company (we don’t follow the trend, we create our own), we do respect when our couples want to keep some element of tradition in their wedding planning. One of the most valued traditions is not seeing each other before the wedding ceremony. Although we understand that bride’s love the shock value, we also know the advantages of seeing each other before. Here are just a few reasons:
1. You can actually get each other’s reactions in the same photo when you see each other for the first time. When you do not see each other, you only get a photo of you walking down the aisle, and possibly the groom watching, trying hard to hold it together.
2. You can attend your cocktail hour and spend more time with your guests that may have not seen you in a very long time. Keeps you from having to spend an hour and a half at dinner walking around to every table to say hello.
3. You can get all of your photos done ahead of time. Sometimes it is the best light for the photographer to shoot in before the ceremony.
4. You can calm your nerves, before the ceremony, and even though you have already seen each other, it will still be special when you walk down the aisle, with your father in tow, in your gorgeous dress, to a beautiful song!
#1 is our most favorite reason to see each other. The amazing reaction you both will have and that moment captured and treasured forever.
Check out these photos of the top 24 reactions of the groom seeing their bride for the first time, and you will see exactly what we mean!

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Empire State Building’s Valentine’s Day Contest. Each year, couples from across the country submit their personal love stories for a chance to exchange nuptials atop the romantic icon. Three lucky couples, along with 24 of their dearest guests, will get an experience of a lifetime.
The contest is definitely being taken to a new level this year with the partnering of ProFlowers and RedEnvelope! Together they will design these three once-in-a-lifetime ceremonies. When RedEnvelope asked to collaborate on a piece about our favorite five gifts from the wedding gifts page featured on their site, of course we said yes! We will admit… we had a hard time choosing only 5!
Here are Table 6 Productions’ Empire State Building Wedding Picks:
1. Craft Cocktails Book – One of the best things about being a newlywed is entertaining! With this book of delicious cocktails, you may end up with permanent house guests!
2. Monogram Artisan Candles – Our favorite thing about this candles is that it has “tunnel burn,” which results is a holder perfectly sized for a tea light. The monogram will always stay beautifully lit!
3. Beer Tasting Set – Just as different wines are best served in specific glasses, so are craft beers! With this set you will have the right glass for every beer. Hmmm… yet another reason to have a party!
4. Bamboo Herb Grow Kit – Not only will you have fresh herbs, but you will have urban bamboo décor!
5. Hall Gallery Frame Set – Every newlywed couple needs a stylish way to display those fabulous wedding photos. We love the art gallery feel of this frame collection!
For complete contest rules and details, visit the Empire State Building’s Facebook page. Better hurry… the deadline is December 5, 2013!

“What is your favorite way to incorporate pumpkins in decor?”
“When using pumpkins in Fall Decor, you really need to get creative with these varying shaped orange guys! In fact, they don’t have to be orange at all! You can paint them with a fun pattern, spray them with glitter, decoupage them with fall leaves, or even dig out their insides and use them as a vessel, such as a way to hold festive drinks, flowers, or candles. Or for a modern party, give them a metallic chevron pattern! You can even use a perfectly shaped round pumpkin as a mold for a floral pomander. Just find a sturdy fall flower and either glue them to the pumpkin or use floral pics. You could even turn your pumpkin upside down, and use it for food display…such as to hold cake pops or anything on a skewer will easily stick into the pumpkins skin. In addition, you can top off your fabulous pumpkin decor with the smell of fall! Just throw a couple of Apple Cinnamon or Pumpkin Spice plug ins into the wall and fill your room with the festive smell of fall! Yum!”
“I love the bowls and soup terrine in the shape of a pumpkin from Pottery Barn. It adds such a warm, fall, festive look to your table.”
“I’m not a big orange pumpkin kind of girl, but I love taking pumpkins and transforming them into something beautiful. I’m inspired by the below photo and would love to paint some pumpkins pure white (or even black) and use glitter to give them a more glam look. I would then set them on a bed of spanish moss with various sized candles to create ambiance.”
“I love the look of this table and how mixing pumpkins with diverse textures of flowers provides such a soft and unique look for fall.”
