Cipriani Wedding on Style Me Pretty

The grand ballroom at Cipriani Wall Street was transformed into a midsummer night's dream when Saipua decided to bring the beautiful outdoors in.  Adding a stunning bride and a dashing groom made this wedding one I will never forget.  Thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring the wedding on the Tristate Blog and the Little Black Book Blog.  Click on the image below to pore over the delicious details in the photographs and video by Christian Oth Studio.

Happy Father's Day

There are often a lot of pictures taken of the Bride and her ladies getting ready. Sometimes the Groom and his gentlemen get a little left out.  Not so with this wedding.  I love this moment captured by Brian Dorsey Studios, where the Groom is helping his Father with his bow tie.Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Fathers out there!

Happy Mother's Day

I loved meeting and working with this Bride's Mother.  She was so very kind, generous and gracious.  A truly wonderful presence to have supporting and celebrating with her daughter on her wedding day.  Also doesn't she look amazing?  She is wearing Carolina Herrera, just like the Bride.mother of the bride-1

This Mother's Day brings a whole new meaning to me, as a few months ago I became a Mum.  I hope that one day I will be able to celebrate with my own daughter on her wedding day.  Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there!

Cipriani Wedding

Working with Giles and Vanessa was a delight.  A couple with so much love for each other and those around them.  Since their dog could not join them at their rehearsal dinner at The Modern, they had a cake from Ruthy’s to remember him by.  The morning of the wedding, Vanessa got ready at the Gramercy Park Hotel and Giles at the Kitano Hotel.cipriani wedding - ang weddings and events - brian dorsey studios

Gorgeous fashion at this wedding with both the Bride and Mother of the Bride wearing Carolina Herrera and the Bridesmaids in BCBG.  The wedding was black tie and I have never seen so many guests in absolutely stunning evening gowns.  It looked like a runway show!

I just adore the lace bolero that Vanessa wore for the church ceremony, and removed later for the dinner reception.  So elegant.

As guest entered Cipriani 42nd Street, they were greeted by a beautiful tree with hanging orchids and votives, designed by Ariston Flowers.  It created a real wow factor as guests were invited into grand venue with soaring ceilings.  The floral decor was mostly white, with a few pops of blue and grey.

Soludos espadrilles were provided for the ladies, so they could dance late into the night.  Party hats, masks, beads and glasses led to more hilarious moments on the dance floor and the photobooth.  I had a blast working on this weddding!

Love in 2012

I often blog about wedding details, but at the end of the day, a wedding is about two people in love who are making a very special promise to each other.  Here are just a few of the amazing couples that we worked with in 2012.
