I am over the moon to see Bingqing and Han's intimate winter wedding at The Foundry in The Knot New York 2018 Fall/Winter issue! Most of our weddings are 100-300 guests, but sometimes we get to plan a small wedding for 48 and it feels extra special. Take a look at some of the thoughtful details below! You can read more about the wedding on this blog post too. Thank you to the The Knot for sharing our work!
Chelsea and Kevin were married at an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends on the rooftop of a boutique hotel The Surrey. Dark clouds had been threatening us all morning, but thankfully it remained dry for their sweet ceremony and gorgeous photographs on the rooftop afterwards! Guests were welcomed to the penthouse level with an elegant welcome sign of hand calligraphy on a framed mirror. We had a string trio play Etta James' At Last as Chelsea walked down the aisle in a classic Monique Lhuillier gown with a cathedral length veil floating behind her.
The reception followed a few blocks away at Chef Daniel Bouloud's michelin starred restaurant. We just had to bring Chelsea and Kevin to the the kitchen to take some pictures in there! During the delicious meal, guests enjoyed a jazz trio, which then transitioned to a DJ for dancing later.
Written Word Calligraphy designed the save the date, invitation and the day of paperie. I just love her modern calligraphy on all these pieces, making them so unique and special. The gold foil stamping on ivory was perfectly classic, and her metallic hand calligraphy on the escort cards beyond dreamy.

We are honoured to be included for the 5th time under the Event Planner Listings in New York Weddings. My favourite feature in this issue? The dreamy watercolour invitations, including gorgeous designs by our friends at Katie Fischer Design and Atelier Isabey. Our Brides this year were beautiful examples from the Style Guide, with two of them in tea length gowns, and one with long lace sleeves. The best part of this issue was the last article, about a couple who have been married for 76 years. Now 100years and 99years old, they are an inspiration to us all.
