I am over the moon to share that Ang Weddings and Events was named one of the best wedding planners in the U.S. by BRIDES magazine! What a honour to be on this list with many esteemed colleagues that I respect and admire. Thank you to Anna Price Olson and Lisa Gooder at BRIDES for their support. Thank you to my team Ashley, Taylor, Rose and Samantha, who help me run things so smoothly on wedding days. Thank you to the amazing venues and vendors that I collaborate with to make all that magic happen for our clients. Last by certainly not least thank you to my couples for entrusting this special day to me. I am feeling so grateful and this is the best way to end 2018 with!
It is always extra special when I get to plan a wedding at Wave Hill, as I was married there myself. Even more so when I get to plan it with such a sweet couple who really did things their own way. Sarah and Arjun walked down the aisle together to “The Way You Look Tonight” and they had Sarah’s sister and Arjun’s brother officiate the ceremony overlooking the Hudson River.
Sarah wanted colour in this wedding and the beautiful florals of spring were more than happy to oblige! Denise Fasanello did such an incredible job creating a lush garden atmosphere with peonies, ranunculus, tulips, hellebores and cherry blossom that suited the venue perfectly. Denise’s initial design board served as the inspiration for the wedding invitation suite by Printerette Press. Sarah and Arjun also sent over photographs of themselves and their 3 “fur baby” pets that were all incorporated into the hand illustrated and letterpressed suite.
The escort cards were metallic gold paper butterfly cards with modern hand calligraphy by Papersoul. All displayed on a grand wooden table with an enchanting display of florals in ceramic pots, vases and a cloche. The watercolour designs continued through to the day of pieces and flowers and paperie complimented each other so elegantly on the dining tables. My favourite part had to be the cake from Nine Cakes which had a combination of painted watercolour florals inspired by the invitation suite and exquisite sugar flowers too. Inside was alternating layers of almond and chocolate cake with two layers of vanilla buttercream, and the center filling with dark chocolate ganache, all layers of filling with fresh raspberries. I try not to use the word perfect too much, but this cake was PERFECT in my mind. Thank you to Mademoiselle Fiona for all of these gorgeous images.
