This wedding was particularly special for a number of reasons. The couple had such a distinct style, I had the pleasure of working with the uber talented team at Saipua and I was working at Wave Hill, where I was married myself. Once Wed put together such a beautiful spread of the wedding. I am so happy with all the love this wedding has received, which has been well deserved for something as beautiful as this. (Also featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.) Thank you to Jillian Mitchell for her sublime images.
After a two year renovation, Wave Hill House is open again. I was very excited to see it at the final walk through for an upcoming wedding with Saipua. The gardens were looking spectacular as usual. It had just rained, making everything look even more lush and smell so fresh. We were all eager to see the interior of the house. They have installed new lighting in Armor Hall, which now really shows off the beautiful wooden ceiling. One of the many reasons I fell in love with this place when I was getting married myself. The cute little balcony in Armor Hall is back in working order too. Perfect for the photographer to get a shot of the whole room. Also added were an elevator, ramp and new bathrooms. Below are some snaps I took on instagram.Mark Twain spent some time at Wave Hill. “I believe we have the noblest roaring blasts here I have ever known on land,” he wrote. “They sing their hoarse song through the treetops with a splendid energy that thrills me and uplifts me and makes me want to live always.”

It has admittedly been months since our wedding anniversary, but my husband and I have just been so busy with work that we never had a chance to go back to our wedding venue Wave Hill until this past weekend. It was a cloudy Labour Day, but Wave Hill was looking better than ever. Wave Hill House is still under renovation, but we had a breakfast picnic of Murray's Bagels and enjoyed walking around the gardens. I cannot wait to see the restorations when the house reopens in 2013. It is a really special place to get married.The pergola overlooking the Hudson River where we said our vows was looking lush and colourful!
The aquatic garden was featuring beautiful lilies and I found a little green frog hiding in the mosaic plant.
