For a Bride looking for something outside of the box, you should look into Victoria KyriaKides, a designer from London and Athens. She recently opened a Manhattan Atelier, so you get to see these unique architectural designs in person. Such elegant draping and pleating.

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.
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.
I love this picture of the Bride and Groom sharing a private moment, surrounded with their loved ones.
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!

It has been so exciting hearing from newly engaged couples. Congratulations to all the happy couples that just got engaged over the holidays! Enjoy your engagement. It is so fun taking your time to tell your family and friends. An excellent reason for the ladies to treat themselves to a manicure, since everyone is going to ask to see your ring.Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! These gorgeous heels from Kate Spade with a gold glitter heel that one of our Brides wore to her wedding would be a fabulous pair or shoes to wear out on New Year's Eve. I hope you have a blast whatever your plans are tonight!
