Central Park Boathouse Wedding

Pam and Paul were married on crisp fall day in New York.  Coming into the planning process, she was not sure exactly how she wanted it to look, but she did know she wanted it to be timeless and elegant.  This was a classic wedding with details that will never go out of style.  Pam's gorgeous ball gown from Dennis Basso with the lace sleeves and sweet belt cinching her waist was breathtaking.  She got ready at the Plaza Hotel which gave Sue Kessler from Christian Oth Studio beautiful portrait opportunities both in the hotel and in Central Park.  

For their save the dates, they had an artist hand draw a black and white map of Manhattan with details of their wedding locations and a few landmarks.  The traditional invitation was hand calligraphed and engraved in midnight blue with gilded beveled edges.  The envelope liner and belly band cut from gilded silk screen Japanese paper added a fun pop of colour and personality to the suite.  Pam loved the Japanese paper so much, it was also brought through to the wedding day items in the programme liner, table number borders and menu belly bands.  

As guests entered the Central Park Boathouse, we had a jazz quartet from Elan Artists playing some of Pam and Paul's favourite jazz standards.  One of the bridesmaids even joined in and sang "At Last".  During the dinner reception, the Blaire Reinhard Band played such a great set that we had to invite guests to be seated for their courses multiple times as they didn't want to leave the dance floor!  Pam sang in college.  During dinner with some college friends she sang a cappella "To Make You Feel My Love" to her husband.   It was such a tender moment.  For their favours, we did cute little pies in a jar from Tiny Pies in Texas, which is where Paul is from.  These were displayed at each place setting, with alternating flavours of sweet Texas pecan pie and apple pie.  Those together with a floral and lace detailed cake from Nine Cakes were the perfect ending to a sweet celebration.

The Carltun Wedding

Amy and Mike were married outside on a beautiful summer day with a backdrop of majestic trees.  Both of them were very busy with their work schedules, so I had a great time collaborating with Amy's father and stepmother, who wanted to create a celebration that was elegant and timeless.  I feel lucky to work with parents who are so kind and gracious, and have such impeccable taste.  Amy wanted lots of pink in her wedding, so we incorporated this in her elegant calla lilly bouquet and blushing pink makora orchids in the centerpieces.  See all the pretty from Jen Huang Photography below.

The Carltun Wedding

Another sweet film from Kiss the Bride Films for an adorable couple who were married at The Carltun this summer.  They wrote their own ceremony vows, with the bride quoting from one of their favourite songs, Just Breathe.  This is one of the reasons why I love film.  The ability to capture those vows and speeches forever.  Congratulations again to Amy and Mike!

New York Palace Wedding

This wedding was really special in that it came together so beautifully despite us having to move locations 6 days prior to the wedding due to Sandy.  The couple met on a plane, so they incorporated mini plane silhouettes on their menus, table numbers and on their wedding cake by Ron Ben-Israel.  The flowers by Blossom and Branch in soft and romantic ivory, green and silver with a touch of blush, had such texture and dimension.  Also those shoes by Kate Spade?  Just fabulous!  Thank you to Jen Huang for sharing these images with us.new york palace wedding ang weddings and events jen huang photography-1

Bowery Hotel Wedding

I always get excited working at The Bowery Hotel, with the warm exposed brick, dramatic amber chandeliers and romantic hanging ivy.  It is such a unique venue, and Lisa and Brian knew it was where they wanted to get married as soon as they stepped into it.Lisa is from Dallas and Brian is from Long Island, so they wove a "Texan Weds Yankee" thread through their wedding.  From the fun signs hanging from the backs of their seats, to the I "Heart" NY favours with a Texan twist.  They had a lot of out of town guests, so they were treated to a short NY sightseeing tour on the bus from the Church to The Bowery Hotel.  The dramatic long tables at The Bowery Hotel were covered in pillar candles, luscious roses and a romantic garland of greenery along their length.

It was one of those weddings where the speeches were so touching they almost had me in tears.  A wedding where you could feel the love that all these people had for the special couple.  Everything was captured beautifully by Dave Robbins.
