Though her wildly successful Couture Parties and Couture Wedding Design launched years ago, Middletown’s Stephanie Frazier Grimm just opened the doors to her exquisite studio in downtown Newport. The busy mom of two young ones has a unique skill for executing events flawlessly while making each one as distinct and memorable as they are heartfelt and beautiful, which is why she jets all over the country for clients and is used to being covered in national magazines. Grimm’s opening was a toast to her craft, with hors d’oeuvres by Middletown’s Chanterelle Boutique Catering, whimsical cupcakes with miniature, custom-made Louis Vuitton and Gucci toppers, and wedding dress and wedding cake cookies by It’s My Party. Grimm also caters to party-planning-challenged parents with her Get The Party Started Party Packs which feature paper dessert plates, plastic cups with themed labels, napkins rolled with forks/spoons and sealed with a coordinating napkin ring, favor bags with tags and matching ribbons to tie bag closed, all for eight, plus 12 themed cupcake picks.
Her modern work space turned lounge was punctuated with bold accessories, precious mementos and made a comfortable setting to sip champagne and the evening’s signature cocktail, the Stephanie Sombrero, a savory Khaluha concoction. Catch up with the planner on Facebook, Twitter, or her two blogs.
Cheers to you, couture style, Stephanie!
