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.

Snowy Winter Wedding at The Foundry

Bingqing and Han were married in a snowy winter day in New York.  We had really lucked out as there was a big snowstorm the day before.  The day of the wedding, the skies were clear, but the ground was blanketed in a bright white layer of fresh snow.  

The bride is an architect and she had designed their invitation suite with a detailed hand illustration of The Foundry.  Prior to the guests arriving they had a Chinese tea ceremony with close family to pay respect to their elders and receive good wishes for their marriage.  This was followed by an intimate wedding ceremony, officiated by a friend of the couple.  We kept the palette clean with creamy whites and crisp greens.  Going into dinner, Poppies and Posies added more colour with blush, dusty rose and pops of burgundy in the florals.  The two long tables were scattered with a sea of elegant tapers in different aged brass candlesticks and crackled amber and pale grey votives.  

Their elegant wedding cake from Nine Cakes had two different flavours.  The bottom tier was lemon cake with layers of lime curd and orange zest cream cheese buttercream.  The top tiers were rich chocolate cake layered with cloud like caramel buttercream, fleur de sel and roasted pecans.  

Bingqing loves to sing and instead of doing the traditional mother son and father daughter dances, they decided to have both sets of parents dance with each other and Bingqing sang a beautiful Chinese song.  It was such a sweet and intimate winter wedding and we were so happy to be part of it!

Jewel Toned Rainbow Room Wedding

Rachel and Brian wanted a formal New York City wedding and found the perfect place at the iconic Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza.  The stunning views of the city and the gorgeous art deco details in the historic venue made it a sure thing as soon as they saw the space.

Rachel and her mom love flowers and orchids in particular.  Naturally I thought of my good friend By Yena Designs, who happens to be an orchid whisperer.  She sources the most divine orchids and creates such stunning arrangements with them.  As soon as guests stepped off the elevator to the 65th floor, they saw the empire state building and were greeted with a lucite escort table filled with flowers.  The Fourteen Forty escort cards were burgundy with hand calligraphy by Mary Ellen in bright white.  The chuppah simply took everyone's breath away with the floral masterpiece that Yena created dripping with orchids.  As guests moved to dinner in the Rainbow Room, the palette moved to deeper jewel tones with a sea of romantic pillar and votive candles.  

Their signature cocktail sign was a "well-stocked bar".  Their beloved beagle Duke was there in spirit with a photo of his head on a stick that everyone loved using with the photo booth.  In lieu of a formal guestbook, the couple provided each table with a bottle of wine that guests signed with markers.  With each year's anniversary, they will open the bottle with the corresponding table number.  What a lovely way to celebrate!  

Thank you to Shawn Connell at Christian Oth Studio for these beautiful images.  Next up I will be sharing their video, which is not to be missed!

Central Park Zoo Wedding

Carly and Xavier were looking for something unique.  Perhaps an outdoor wedding or a view of the New York skyline.  We managed to find them both of these things at the Central Park Zoo!  They had a small ceremony at City Hall and invited their dearest friends and family to party with them at the zoo.  A zoo isn't immediately what you think of as wedding worthy, but the Central Park Zoo is a special place.  The warm brick columns and the lush green ivy, make it truly beautiful.  Carly wore a stunning lace jumpsuit from DVF and carried a lush bouquet of deep red peonies.  

Guests were invited to cocktails around the sea lion pool and the tropics and penguin exhibits were also open for exploration.  As a tribute to her father, Carly had Street Beat Brass Band play New Orleans jazz favourites and the signature drinks were the New Orleans Hurricane and Bloody Mary.  

For dinner and dancing, the tent was filled with hundreds of string lights and greenery.  Verde Flowers created lush floral arrangements in creams and blush, with striking black vases for the long tables.  After a delicious meal from Creative Edge Parties, we had beautiful cake from Nine Cakes and a cheese display for guests to choose from.  The cake toppers were batman and batgirl, a costume Carly and Xavier had dressed up in one year for Halloween.  The bride used the same cake knife to cut her cake as her mother and father used for their wedding.  It still had a bit of icing left over on the edge! 

This was such a fun celebration to be part of.  Thank you to Moss and Isaac for these gorgeous images.
