A Colourful Celebration at Weylin

The Weylin in Williamsburg Brooklyn is such a stunning and unique venue.  Every time I go there I marvel at that ceiling.  I was super excited to work there for this wedding!  The bride loved colour and Putnam & Putnam brought a bold and colourful take to this black tie wedding, while still remaining elegant and refined.  For the palette, they used a variety of shades through red, fuchsia, orange and golden yellow with a touch of purple and plum.  Nine Cakes outdid themselves with a textured buttercream cake, gold painted details, sugar flowers and pink peppercorns (now my new favourite cake detail!). 

Blaire Band entertained while guests enjoyed their delicious meal from Abigail Kirsch Catering.  I love working at raw spaces with plenty of character where we can bring in all the rentals (down to the last teaspoon) and make it really special.  The aztec gold linens, ornate chargers and bone white reception chairs from Party Rental Ltd made for the perfect stage for the bright floral palette.  

At the end of the night, the guests went downstairs to the 1875 Bar where the after party continued the celebrations.  Complete with a dozen pies from a local pizza restaurant.  The perfect end to a super fun night!  Thank you to Ron at Brian Dorsey Studios for catching all these moments.

Great Gatsby Styled Shoot

When Judy Pak asked if I wanted to collaborate on a styled shoot with her, I jumped at the chance.  Despite it being October and the peak of wedding season for many of us wedding folk, I just adore Judy's works so much, I had to find a way to work with her on this.  I am very happy I did!  It was so much fun working on this styled shoot with a super talented group of people.  We wanted to create a Great Gatsby styled shoot with a young indie rock and roll twist.  The de Seversky Mansion served as the perfect location for the shoot.

Jenny Packham's Azalea gown was just breathtaking.  So beautiful from the front and the back.  Emily Riggs created the pretty hair pieces we used.

Michelle Edgemont styled the shoot and handmade so many unique items. Including the geometric paper decor for the ceremony arch and the confetti bags, which matched the invitation envelope liner from Make Merry.

Tara from Barbara’s Flowers kept the floral decor loose and wild, with pops of colour of romantic burgundy.

Julie from Big City Little Sweets provided a delectable dessert table of goodies.  Her cake pops are ridiculously good.  Luckily for us, we got to eat them after the shoot.  What I wouldn't give to have a few more right now!

The book's couple were called Daisy and Jay, so Judy thought it would be fun to use the same initials in our shoot.  We named our couple Dahlia and Jayden, and Michelle Edgemont handmade these awesome signs to go over the bar.

Many thanks to everyone for lending their time and talent to this shoot.  Special thanks to Judy Pak Photography for sharing these dreamy images.
