Romantic Fall Wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

As the weather is starting to turn cooler in New York, I'm thinking back to this gorgeous autumn wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns.  Sarna and Matthew were married on a crisp fall day at one of my favourite venues.  Sarna wore a stunning vintage inspired beaded gown from Jenny Packham and fresh flowers in her hair. 

Saipua designed the florals in a creamy white and soft blush palette with accents of deep pomegranate red.  With an intimate wedding of 128 guests, we were able to setup the ceremony chairs in a circular fashion around the beautiful wild chuppah.  It was an incredible feeling getting married to your love surrounded (literally) with all the people you care most about!  I adored the ring box (made from legos by the ring bearer) and the embroidered cloth covering the table under the chuppah (a gift from a dear friend).  Another friend officiated the wedding and it all made their ceremony feel so personal and special.  

Sarna and Matthew found a day of the dead cake topper in a store selling Mexican art and it was a perfect nod to Matthew's heritage.  The wedding cake from Blue Hill at Stone Barns was apple, crème fraiche, vanilla chiffon cake.  All the food from Blue Hill was so beautifully presented, seasonal and delicious!  Sean from 74 Events kept the dance floor packed all night and whole day was captured so timelessly by James at Judy Pak Studio.  It was the perfect way for Sarna and Matthew to spend their Thanksgiving weekend celebrating with family and friends.  I was so lucky to have been a part of it!

Burgundy Red and Black Halloween Wedding at the Liberty Warehouse

Halloween is Jenn and Alex's favourite holiday, so it was only fitting when they found that weekend available at the Liberty Warehouse, they decided they were meant to get married on Halloween weekend!  Their favourite colours are black and red and they wanted to create a dark, moody and deeply romantic black tie event. 

They were married under a dramatic chuppah of overgrown crimson reds and deep greens, with ivory candles in glass hurricanes at the base.  Two black cast iron urns marked the beginning of the aisle.  Jenn carried a bouquet with deep burgundy reds that were almost black.  It was absolutely stunning against her elegant Lihi Hod two piece dress (a sequin, crystal and pearl top over a satin skirt).  For the dinner reception Putnam & Putnam used black tapers in cut glass holders and black pillar handles in hurricanes which created a wildly romantic atmosphere.  The crimson red and deep burgundy florals had such interesting texture and moment.  They even used deep purple artichokes!  

Jenn and Alex really wanted to create a fun party for their guests.  We brought in the Brooklyn Oyster Party for the cocktail reception, where two attendants shucked a variety of oysters for guests to enjoy.  We also had the Korilla BBQ truck come late night and serve Korean tacos and burritos to guests during the after party.  Guests were encouraged to bring Halloween costumes to change into.  For those who did not have them, we distributed a basket of masks for them to use.  

Nine Cakes created a cake with a tumble of sugar flowers, metallic gold brush strokes on the top tiers and gold foliage accents.  Inside it had alternating layers of banana chocolate chip cake and dark chocolate cake, with two layers of cream cheese and a center layer of salted caramel frosting.  YUM!  

One of Jenn's bridesmaids and good friends happens to be an amazing painter (Abe Design).  She painted pictures of Jenn and Alex from special moments in their lives together, which were printed in their save the dates.  She also painted the day of programme, cocktail signs and a portrait of the bride and groom.  Fourteen Forty designed their invitations and I loved the pearl white seal with an image of a masquerade mask that was used to hold the modern suite together.  

This was such a unique celebration and we were so happy to have been a part of!  Thank you to Ron at Brian Dorsey Studios for capturing all these special moments!

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.
