This was one of our favourite weddings at Wave Hill. There is nothing like spring in the gardens and working with Sarah and Arjun on their wedding was so much fun! I am absolutely delighted to see their wedding published in BRIDES! Click on the image below to read more about their sweet celebration.
Carly and Bobby were married at St Jean Baptiste Roman Catholic Church and the reception followed at The Plaza Hotel. The gorgeous invitation suite from Fourteen Forty set the tone for this wedding with calligraphy details, hand drawn monogramme, navy ribbon wrap and a metallic gold wax seal with their initials. Carly wore a timeless Vera Wang gown with lace details and a beautiful sash and bow. The bridesmaids in different styles and shades of blue with the gents in classic black tie made for a very good looking bridal party. It was the biggest one we’ve had to date with 13 bridesmaids and 13 groomsmen!
Putnam and Putnam created a refined autumnal palette of cream, mauve, gold and deep rust red. They blew me away with the stunning floral arch they built at the entrance to the ballroom for dinner. Inside the magnificent ballroom, we had a mix of low florals in brass footed vessels, tall arrangements on four post brass stands and slender ivory taper candles. They incorporated berries, green pomegranates and deep red persimmons in the tablescape, which really popped against the rich navy velvet linen for the head table. The top of each menu had a gold wax seal. We brought in a white dance floor from Hitech Events with a custom geometric design using black and gold mirror. Cafe Wha rocked the party and that dance floor was packed all night long!
Nine Cakes designed the gluten free wedding cake, which was lemon cake layered with lemon curd, cream cheese frosting and fresh raspberries. Carly surprised Bobby with a groom’s cake of dark chocolate, mint buttercream and mini chocolate chips. It was a green leprechaun hat with a gilded clover and a gold Notre Dam emblem.
We ended the night with a bang, as we passed out confetti sticks. Their nearest and dearest showered Carly and Bobby with confetti and so much LOVE! All captured by the lovely Judy Pak.

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!
