The Weylin in Williamsburg Brooklyn is such a stunning and unique venue. Every time I go there I marvel at that ceiling. I was super excited to work there for this wedding! The bride loved colour and Putnam & Putnam brought a bold and colourful take to this black tie wedding, while still remaining elegant and refined. For the palette, they used a variety of shades through red, fuchsia, orange and golden yellow with a touch of purple and plum. Nine Cakes outdid themselves with a textured buttercream cake, gold painted details, sugar flowers and pink peppercorns (now my new favourite cake detail!).
Blaire Band entertained while guests enjoyed their delicious meal from Abigail Kirsch Catering. I love working at raw spaces with plenty of character where we can bring in all the rentals (down to the last teaspoon) and make it really special. The aztec gold linens, ornate chargers and bone white reception chairs from Party Rental Ltd made for the perfect stage for the bright floral palette.
At the end of the night, the guests went downstairs to the 1875 Bar where the after party continued the celebrations. Complete with a dozen pies from a local pizza restaurant. The perfect end to a super fun night! Thank you to Ron at Brian Dorsey Studios for catching all these moments.

Bingqing and Han were married in a snowy winter day in New York. We had really lucked out as there was a big snowstorm the day before. The day of the wedding, the skies were clear, but the ground was blanketed in a bright white layer of fresh snow.
The bride is an architect and she had designed their invitation suite with a detailed hand illustration of The Foundry. Prior to the guests arriving they had a Chinese tea ceremony with close family to pay respect to their elders and receive good wishes for their marriage. This was followed by an intimate wedding ceremony, officiated by a friend of the couple. We kept the palette clean with creamy whites and crisp greens. Going into dinner, Poppies and Posies added more colour with blush, dusty rose and pops of burgundy in the florals. The two long tables were scattered with a sea of elegant tapers in different aged brass candlesticks and crackled amber and pale grey votives.
Their elegant wedding cake from Nine Cakes had two different flavours. The bottom tier was lemon cake with layers of lime curd and orange zest cream cheese buttercream. The top tiers were rich chocolate cake layered with cloud like caramel buttercream, fleur de sel and roasted pecans.
Bingqing loves to sing and instead of doing the traditional mother son and father daughter dances, they decided to have both sets of parents dance with each other and Bingqing sang a beautiful Chinese song. It was such a sweet and intimate winter wedding and we were so happy to be part of it!

I am dreaming of spring and all these lush Monet inspired florals that Quatre Coeur created for Lindsey and Alan's wedding at the Harold Pratt House. This elegant townhouse built on the upper eastside in 1920 is one of my favourite venues for an intimate city wedding. The old world charm and classic details were perfect for this couple that met at Princeton.
Lindsey looked absolutely stunning in a mermaid lace Ines di Santo gown and a cathedral length veil edged with lace. She loved lilac and even though it isn't an easy flower for a bouquet given the need for water, Ruth from Quatre Coeur still made it happen! I loved the magnificently lush arrangement she created for the escort table and the romantic garland winding its way up the staircase to the ballroom upstairs.
The cocktail reception took place in the library and Creative Edge designed these serving platters with a cloche covering old linen bound books in the center. Lindsey and Alan brought their favourite ice cream to the wedding from The Bent Spoon and Creative Edge served these on miniature cones that were a late night hit! Guests took home jars of jam made by Alan's mother from fruit from her own garden. I often find with weddings that we have leftover favours at the end of the night, but not with this one!
Thank you to Charlie Juliet for capturing this classic and timeless wedding in the most beautiful way.
