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!

Copper and Navy Fall Wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Sara and Chris were looking for a bucolic venue not too far from the city, and they found that at Blue Hill at Stone Barns.  They were able to host a wedding that felt elegant, seasonal, wild and autumnal.  Sara was 6 months pregnant and wore an elegant silk gown with flower appliques from Elisabeth Fillmore.  Chris wore a bespoke navy blue Martin Greenfield tuxedo.  I loved the flower girl dresses from Isabel Garreton with the navy details.  They looked so cute with their crowns incorporating porcelain berries!

Cipriani Wedding

Cipriani Wall Street has seen a lot of black tie weddings, but not often is it transformed like this.  Saipua brought to life the ethereal and diaphanous feeling that Francesca wanted for the wedding and created a midsummer night's dream.  There was so much I loved about this day.  The towering flowering branches with romantic hanging votives, the lush flower wall at the entrance, the engraved invitation suite with gold edging and the vintage cake topper from Francesca's grandparents' wedding.  Most of all, I loved getting to work with a couple with so much class, impeccable taste and very much in love.  Francesca wore two gowns from Reem Acra, a dreamy tulle ballgown for the ceremony and later changed to a pale green dress with beaded capped sleeves.  Francesca was training to be a dermatologist and Kuba completing a residency in orthopedic surgery, so her father said they go together like "skin and bones".  Thank you to Michael Falco at Christian Oth Studio for capturing their day so beautifully.

Wave Hill Wedding

The details in Emily and Marco's September wedding at Wave Hill were a sight to behold that day.  The one and only Saipua created a floral dream that brought Wave Hill to a whole other level.  I loved the four lush urn arrangements and the white benches for their ceremony at the romantic pergola overlooking the Hudson.  At Wave Hill House, they brought the garden inside with lush garlands, gorgeous flowers, towering trees on the tables and glowing candlelight everywhere.  

In this digital world, I have to say it makes me adore paper and beautiful invitations even more.  Katie Fischer Design's invitations were my absolute favourite from last year.  The perfect combination of modern, fresh and elegant.  Paperfinger calligraphed all the text, Katie hand drew the rose, everything was letterpressed on thick stock and Katie hand painted each piece the colour of cafe au lait dahlia (which needed a mix of four different colours).  I am sure their guests appreciated that each piece of stationery they encountered was a piece of art! 

Now let's talk about the fashion!  Untraditional and down right amazing.  Emily wore a white J. Mendel top, a pink and gold rose Dior skirt with black tulle underneath, and metallic rose gold Dior shoes.  Marco wore a crisp white dinner jacket from Ralph Lauren.  Don't you think more men should wear this at their weddings?

Another unique element I loved was their jazz band The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys that played their ceremony, led a second line to their cocktail reception and kept the party going during dinner.  Later that night DJ Sam Turner from Beat Train Productions played a great set and kept everyone on the dance floor.  

A big thank you to the talented Jillian Mitchell who captured this special wedding in such a light filled, romantic and striking way.  It was so hard for me to edit the images down for this post!

Emily and Marco's wedding was published in Martha Stewart Magazineon their website, and in Once Wed.
