Spring Delight in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

Spring is my favourite season as things start growing, everything slowly turns green and flowers become gloriously abundant! Emily and Michael were married in June in the gorgeous Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. The weather was touch and go with the rain that day, but we managed to have the ceremony outdoors on a paved section of the gardens surrounded by the magnificent lush trees. Their close friend married them and their two brothers stood with them under the simple and elegant chuppah. Emily did not have traditional bridesmaids, but her four good friends helped as ushers and she gifted them personalized jackets.

I loved the palette with creamy whites and vibrant greens with a sunshine pop of yellow. Emily was leaning towards more muted colours and Michael to bright pops, so this was the perfect balance for them! The centerpieces by Mimosa were a mix of metallic copper terrariums and vase arrangements incorporating ranunuclus, passion flowers, tree peonies, allium buds and garden roses. The backdrop of the head table was a magnificent green wall with a neon sign “The Kuzies”. The calligraphy escort cards were hung with mini gold clothespins and displayed on a wall flanked by 2 green walls.

Emily surprised Michael with a groom’s cake from his favourite bakery, the “birthday cake” from Milkbar and had it iced with “let’s always have our cake and eat it too”. Their favours were super delicious whoopie pies from One Girl Cookies. Thank you to the amazing Judy Pak for these delightful images!

Wave Hill Wedding

It is always extra special when I get to plan a Wave Hill wedding, as I was married there myself. Even more so when I get to plan it with such a sweet couple who really did things their own way. Sarah and Arjun walked down the aisle together to “The Way You Look Tonight” and they had Sarah’s sister and Arjun’s brother officiate the ceremony overlooking the Hudson River.

The Weylin Wedding

Katie and Paul’s Weylin wedding in Williamsburg was one of my favourite fall weddings. The bridesmaids wore black dresses of their own choosing and they looked so elegant with the groomsmen in their tuxedos. Katie wore a gown by Lela Rose with beautiful textured floral details.

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!
