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.

Garden Glam Wedding at NOMO SOHO Hotel

This is how you throw a wedding celebration with that outdoor feel, but right in the middle of Manhattan.  The bride and groom said their vows on the rooftop at NOMO SOHO and watched the sun set as they sipped on cocktails with their guests.  The party progressed downstairs to Isola for a delicious family style dinner.  The room was jaw dropping, with glamorous chandeliers hanging overhead, lush blooms by Blossom and Branch, an eclectic mix of different tables and chairs, and romantic calligraphy on blush watercolour brushstrokes by Julie Song Ink.  So many guests stopped at the entrance of the room to take a photograph!  The evening ended with a decadent dessert table including Dominique Ansel Cronuts, Magnolia Bakery banana pudding, Molly's Cupcakes, Citarella pies and a wedding cake from Nine Cakes.  All of the couple's favourite desserts from New York City.

Harold Pratt House Wedding

Classic, sophisticated, New York, are words that come to mind when I think back on this wedding.  Allison and Brian wanted to create a celebration that would be timeless and they chose the perfect Manhattan venue for this.  The Harold Pratt House, an elegant townhouse on the upper east side built in 1919-1920.  Housing a gorgeous marble staircase, tall ceilings and antique chandeliers.  They hung one of their framed engagement pictures in the hallway near the entrance.  It was almost like you were inviting your closest family and friends to a celebration at your home (if you were so lucky to live in a place like that!)For their winter wedding we used a palette of crisp white, rich gold, romantic burgundy and touches of blush and lavender.  Rountree Flowers created two tablescapes, one with towering white quince branches, and another with low lush arrangements of roses, lisianthus, garden roses and stock.  Mercury glass pillar candles of varying heights covered the tables, and uplighting along the drapery surrounding the room created a warm glow.

A few months into planning this wedding, I found out I was expecting and would not be able to manage the wedding the day of, as I was due right about the same time.  A big thank you to Allison and Brian for being such understanding clients and so supportive through my pregnancy.  A huge thank you to my dear friend Lauren from Loli Events, who took over for me the month prior to the wedding day, and made it such a wonderful day for them both.  After all that planning, I was very sad that I could not be there the day of, but these images from Brian Dorsey and video from Kiss the Bride Films were the next best thing.  I almost felt like I was there!

Cipriani Wedding

Working with Giles and Vanessa was a delight.  A couple with so much love for each other and those around them.  Since their dog could not join them at their rehearsal dinner at The Modern, they had a cake from Ruthy’s to remember him by.  The morning of the wedding, Vanessa got ready at the Gramercy Park Hotel and Giles at the Kitano Hotel.cipriani wedding - ang weddings and events - brian dorsey studios

Gorgeous fashion at this wedding with both the Bride and Mother of the Bride wearing Carolina Herrera and the Bridesmaids in BCBG.  The wedding was black tie and I have never seen so many guests in absolutely stunning evening gowns.  It looked like a runway show!

I just adore the lace bolero that Vanessa wore for the church ceremony, and removed later for the dinner reception.  So elegant.

As guest entered Cipriani 42nd Street, they were greeted by a beautiful tree with hanging orchids and votives, designed by Ariston Flowers.  It created a real wow factor as guests were invited into grand venue with soaring ceilings.  The floral decor was mostly white, with a few pops of blue and grey.

Soludos espadrilles were provided for the ladies, so they could dance late into the night.  Party hats, masks, beads and glasses led to more hilarious moments on the dance floor and the photobooth.  I had a blast working on this weddding!
