|We are very happy to share Emily & Jobe’s recent wedding here at Longfellows. On March 29th, with about 20 family members and close friends witnessing, Emily & Jobe had a beautiful ceremony in front of our indoor koi pond and then moved the party upstairs to our Loft where they all enjoyed an intimate family dinner. As always Rob Spring did a great job capturing the day!|
|How adorable are these moments with Emily’s children?|
|I just love that with any size group, you can have an amazing reception and wonderful memories!|

|They say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day. While waiting for Hurricane Sandy to hit Upstate New York, I had some time to find some cute accessories that could help our bride’s when Mother Nature likes to share her luck.|

|I just love this time of year! The air is crisp and you know winter is on it’s way but before the Holiday Season is upon us we get to relax for a little bit and enjoy the rich colors of our surroundings. Fall has become a VERY popular time for weddings and I can certainly understand why! There are so many colors and decor that you can pull from nature to create a comfy, cozy, rustic theme. Here are a few trends that we have been seeing alot of:|

Schrade’s Posie Peddler is your Saratoga hometown florist. As soon as you meet the owner, Gretchen Squires, you know she loves what she does and as a fourth generation business owner, it’s in her blood!
Gretchen’s Great Grandfather Henry J. Schrade opened Shrade’s Flowers in 1910. Her Grandfather then became involved in the business along with running a greenhouse on Nelson Ave. It wasn’t until Gretchen’s father decided to open the Posie Peddler on Broadway in 1974 when she got involved in the shop.
Growing up with flowers has always been a part of her life. Gretchen takes alot of pride being a Saratogian and owning a family legacy.
|Working with Gretchen and her team is always a delight. They work very closely with our couples recommending floral options that fit their theme and budget. On the wedding day it’s very common to see Gretchen at the wedding site perfecting the centerpieces and bouquets making sure every last piece is in it’s perfect place. Stop by Posie Peddler at their 92 West Ave. location in Saratoga. You won’t regret it!|

It’s Derby Day- Let’s Celebrate!!!
The Kentucky Derby has been a Horse Racing Tradition since 1875. Everything revolves around “The Run for the Roses” which takes place at the historical Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky and is often referred to as “the greatest two minutes in sports.”
To Celebrate the Big Race and your Big Day in style, incorporate the Mint Julep as a signature drink for your guests to enjoy. Everyone will be a winner!!
Muddle mint leaves, powdered sugar, and water in a collins glass. Fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice and add bourbon. Top with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig. Serve with a straw.
