The Surrey Hotel Rooftop Wedding

Chelsea and Kevin were married at an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends on the rooftop of a boutique hotel The Surrey.  Dark clouds had been threatening us all morning, but thankfully it remained dry for their sweet ceremony and gorgeous photographs on the rooftop afterwards!  Guests were welcomed to the penthouse level with an elegant welcome sign of hand calligraphy on a framed mirror.   We had a string trio play Etta James' At Last as Chelsea walked down the aisle in a classic Monique Lhuillier gown with a cathedral length veil floating behind her.  

The reception followed a few blocks away at Chef Daniel Bouloud's michelin starred restaurant.  We just had to bring Chelsea and Kevin to the the kitchen to take some pictures in there!  During the delicious meal, guests enjoyed a jazz trio, which then transitioned to a DJ for dancing later.  

Written Word Calligraphy designed the save the date, invitation and the day of paperie.  I just love her modern calligraphy on all these pieces, making them so unique and special.  The gold foil stamping on ivory was perfectly classic, and her metallic hand calligraphy on the escort cards beyond dreamy.

Style Me Pretty: Chic NYC Wedding With Skyline Views + Lace Jumpsuit

Thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring Carly and Xavier's spring wedding at the Central Park Zoo!  It was such a unique location for a reception.  Guests enjoyed cocktails around the sea lion pool, with an incredible view of Central Park South, and went on to dinner under a tent filled with twinkling lights.  It was a really fun celebration and I loved being part of it!

A Cup of Jo: How to Navigate a Career Change

After 7 years of working on a trading floor at an investment bank, I decided to quit my job and start my own business in wedding planning.  After this 2017 season, I will have 7 years under my belt in planning events!  I was so honoured to be interviewed by A Cup of Jo about my 180 career change, along with 9 other ladies who made the change in many different fields.  Click on the image below to read more.  Thank you to Joanna Goddard and Meg Cahn for including me!  

 
 

Four Seasons Hotel Wedding: Emily and Leon

Emily and Leon had a New York wedding in spring, the same season as when they first started dating.  I loved their elegant and timeless style, and the addition of sweet little whimsical touches.  Her Monique Lhuillier gown had an intricately beaded bodice and a full ballgown skirt with an asymmetric gather.  Emily hand illustrated the save the date herself!  She often drew a cartoon bear and lion to represent them as a couple and this illustration made its way to the formal invitation and the Eleni's cookie favours.  Blossom and Branch brought spring to the inside of the Four Seasons Hotel with towering cherry blossoms and romantic peonies everywhere, including coral charms, which are such show stoppers.  I particularly loved their wedding cake from Nine Cakes with a gold accent tier and a cascade of loose cherry blossoms tinged in gold falling down the cake.  Thank you to Brian Hatton for capturing their sweet day!
