Martha Stewart Weddings: "Something Old" Ideas

"Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" for good luck.  I shared my favourite "something old" idea with Martha Stewart Weddings!  Thank you for including me in this article.

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.

New York Magazine Weddings Winter 2018

When I started Ang Weddings and Events in 2011, one of the biggest reasons that our business took off is that New York Weddings picked us for their listing of New York Event Planners.  For a New York bride who has been reading NY magazine for years, the wedding issue becomes their bible when wedding planning.  I am always grateful for that start and the couples that have found us through the magazine.  Now I am so happy to be a contributor to their articles!  I am so pleased to have helped out with not one, but two articles in the Winter 2018 issue.  Planning a Wedding in Six Weeks and 15 New Wedding Reception Venues.  It is always a treat and still surreal to see my name in print in a major publication.  Thank you for including my tips!
