We are so honored to stay in touch with our amazing clients by way of grabbing dinner/drinks, through social media, and just old fashioned texting/emailing! Our clients are everything that makes our company what it is, therefore it's only fitting to continue to feature them and their amazing & loving lives.
To our clients: We thank you every single day for having us be a part of your biggest one. Your wedding does not end at clean up for us, we could recite almost all of your details at the drop of a hat even years later. We truly love seeing what you all have cooking, new jobs, new moves, babies etc. Reading these updates only brought into perspective how magnificent the people we work with are. We are and forever will be grateful for you.

Rachel & Mike
Wedding: Late Spring 2015 | Groton, Connecticut
Following our most perfect wedding day in May 2015, we recently traded busy, NYC city living for quiet New Jersey suburb life! There’s a Benihana within 15 minutes, which was a non-negotiable requirement for Mike. We drive cars regularly - it feels really weird after years of subway commutes. Our two cats love the extra room, Mike has his very own office and I have taken over the entire basement with craft supplies. My Etsy store, Shoppe Winsome, has been keeping me busy with wooden countdown blocks and plenty of foiled signage for weddings. We are headed to France for a long vacation in summer 2017 – a first for both of us – and we’re over the moon to experience a new place, together! Two years in and neither of us have been snuffed with a pillow mid-snore… I’d say we’re doing pretty well! ;)
Kait & Justin
Wedding: Late Summer 2014 | New Milford, Connecticut
"We are still living in the same little Brownstone in Brooklyn. Our apartment is about to get a little more cramped as we welcome our first babe this September. We still think of our wedding often. That day continues to be one of the most special moments of our story thus far."
Caitlin & Ryan
Wedding: Summer 2013 | Milford, Connecticut
"Since Ryan and I tied the knot in August of 2013 we entered parenthood very fast with a honeymoon baby to a beautiful girl, Addison in June 2014. Since entering this new and exciting journey as parents so much has changed in our lives. The amount we learned that you can love another human soul, that the littlest things can brighten your day, the constant laughter that fills our home on a daily basis and how holidays have truly come alive with magic. This September we will be welcoming a baby boy."
Sara & Chris
Wedding: Summer 2013 | New Haven, Connecticut
Sara & Chris are doing well, still living in Milford however a bit more sleep deprived than they were 3 years ago when they were getting married since the birth of their son Matt!
Ashley & Will
Wedding: Late Summer 2016 | New Canaan, Connecticut
"We've been spending the first year of marriage of traveling and became beekeepers this spring. We're continuing to look forward to the future and celebrating our first anniversary in September"
Tessa & Jim
Wedding: Summer 2016 | Middletown, Connecticut
"We just bought our first house in Monroe, CT and are super excited about updating it to make it our own. We're buried in boxes, paint samples, unsure of where everything goes quite yet - but loving every minute.Jim released another album this spring called "Acoustic" which charted on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts upon it's release, and also dominated the South Korean pop charts where he has a huge following (yes, he is a legitimate Korean pop star; he out-charted Beyonce last year. Can't make this [stuff] up.). He is currently planning a fall tour there. In a fun turn of events, the song we sang together and sent out as our Save the Date (called "Just To Be With You") was just featured on Days of Our Lives this month in two separate episodes. It was written into the script -- one of the new main characters is a singer-songwriter and they made it her song. Pretty awesome! Weird thing? The character's name is Tessa. I'm still loving my work as a Sr. Account Director for Motive , and am focusing on building our Spirits business. I currently oversee marketing strategy for The Macallan and Highland Park whiskies and we just won the Moët & Chandon business, which I am very excited about."
Christelle & John
Wedding: Summer 2015 | Norwalk, Connecticut
"We got married on a beautiful day in July 2015 and to this day - we still rave about how amazing the ACE team was in ensuring that every detail of our day was absolutely perfect! Fast forward to 2017: We happily welcomed our first child, moved into our new home, AND launched a design company [Aquarelle] all in the span of 3 weeks. We've always been busy bodies, going above and beyond the call of duty at work, and now prioritize soaking up every second with our beautiful daughter, Cora - who is growing too fast!"

Liz & Joe
Wedding: Late Summer 2013 | Westport, Connecticut
"What we're up to now:
Lots!! We bought an apartment in Brooklyn Heights in July of 2015, the day after Liz gave birth to Bodhi, our son, on her 40th birthday. Zoe, our daughter, who was our favorite flower girl at our wedding, is a fabulous big sister. Zoe is now 4 and goes to preschool in our neighborhood. She loves to look at pictures and videos of our wedding and especially of her in it! We even framed her little headpiece made of baby's breath and it's hanging outside of her room.
We've been busy planning our kids' birthdays and other celebrations but look fondly back at our wedding planning days and remember how much fun and love we shared on our wedding day."

Vanessa & Chris
Wedding: Late Spring 2015 | Milford, Connecticut

Angie & Jay
Wedding: Summer 2016 | Westport, Connecticut
"Jay and I are so thrilled to be back in Los Angeles, the city where we met, casually and serendipitously, almost five years ago. Right after we got married, we were forced to do long distance because of our jobs but thankfully we are together again, back in the city we love, where the sun always shines, grateful as ever. We hope to be parents in the near future. And though our happiest days are ahead of us, we keep looking back on our wedding as one of the most perfect days of our lives. Forever thankful to the ACE crew for making it so special."

We’re now living just outside of Boston, bought a house, adopted a second dog, and since we didn’t feel busy enough, we both started grad school programs. Although the time has flown by, and sometimes it’s a whirlwind, we’ll always have our incredible wedding day to look back on."
