Monet Inspired Harold Pratt House Wedding

I am dreaming of spring and all these lush Monet inspired florals that Quatre Coeur created for Lindsey and Alan's wedding at the Harold Pratt House.  This elegant townhouse built on the upper eastside in 1920 is one of my favourite venues for an intimate city wedding.  The old world charm and classic details were perfect for this couple that met at Princeton.  

Lindsey looked absolutely stunning in a mermaid lace Ines di Santo gown and a cathedral length veil edged with lace.  She loved lilac and even though it isn't an easy flower for a bouquet given the need for water, Ruth from Quatre Coeur still made it happen!  I loved the magnificently lush arrangement she created for the escort table and the romantic garland winding its way up the staircase to the ballroom upstairs.  

The cocktail reception took place in the library and Creative Edge designed these serving platters with a cloche covering old linen bound books in the center.  Lindsey and Alan brought their favourite ice cream to the wedding from The Bent Spoon and Creative Edge served these on miniature cones that were a late night hit!  Guests took home jars of jam made by Alan's mother from fruit from her own garden.  I often find with weddings that we have leftover favours at the end of the night, but not with this one!  

Thank you to Charlie Juliet for capturing this classic and timeless wedding in the most beautiful way.

Harold Pratt House Wedding

Classic, sophisticated, New York, are words that come to mind when I think back on this wedding.  Allison and Brian wanted to create a celebration that would be timeless and they chose the perfect Manhattan venue for this.  The Harold Pratt House, an elegant townhouse on the upper east side built in 1919-1920.  Housing a gorgeous marble staircase, tall ceilings and antique chandeliers.  They hung one of their framed engagement pictures in the hallway near the entrance.  It was almost like you were inviting your closest family and friends to a celebration at your home (if you were so lucky to live in a place like that!)For their winter wedding we used a palette of crisp white, rich gold, romantic burgundy and touches of blush and lavender.  Rountree Flowers created two tablescapes, one with towering white quince branches, and another with low lush arrangements of roses, lisianthus, garden roses and stock.  Mercury glass pillar candles of varying heights covered the tables, and uplighting along the drapery surrounding the room created a warm glow.

A few months into planning this wedding, I found out I was expecting and would not be able to manage the wedding the day of, as I was due right about the same time.  A big thank you to Allison and Brian for being such understanding clients and so supportive through my pregnancy.  A huge thank you to my dear friend Lauren from Loli Events, who took over for me the month prior to the wedding day, and made it such a wonderful day for them both.  After all that planning, I was very sad that I could not be there the day of, but these images from Brian Dorsey and video from Kiss the Bride Films were the next best thing.  I almost felt like I was there!

Harold Pratt House Wedding

The Harold Pratt House is such a special venue, and it worked out perfectly for a very special couple.  In honour of Allison and Brian, we created a winter wedding that was classic, sophisticated and timeless.  I was so excited to watch this film from Kiss the Bride Films, which beautifully captures the essence of the happy day forever. Another great example of why I think hiring a cinematographer is important.  Thank you to Leslie and her team for sharing this highlight.
