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.

Custom Prints

Poppies and Posies have teamed up with designer Stephanie Singer-Eventov to create a line of custom prints, which are available at The Trove.  I adore a graphic print.  I have them all over my apartment.  You can see how a table runner like this really enhances the overall design.  Well done ladies!poppies and posies 2

Food Wedding Favours

I often get asked what makes for a good wedding favour.  I am a huge fan of something edible.  A favourite bakery like Billy's Bakery, candy store like Pappabubble, or chocolate shop like Burdick Chocolate make for a sweet treat for your guests to eat on the way home.  Incorporating something to do with the city you are getting married, or perhaps where you are from is also a great idea.  Maybe your family is from the south, and you could do grits with a tasty shrimp and grits favor shrimp and grits-1
