Eclectic Urban Wedding at the Brooklyn Winery

Brooklyn Winery seems like a dream wedding location; a little pocket of easy elegance in the middle of a bustling city. And for a Bride and Groom that wanted a wedding centered around relaxed fun – boom. I think this wedding is just what the doctor ordered. The team behind this day is to thank; talents like Denise Fasanello FlowersExquisite Affair Productions and Betsi Ewing Photography. Take a peek at all of their handiwork right here.

From The Bride…We met at a dive bar in NYC. Stephen was with some friends, and Genevieve was with a friend sitting at the end of the bar. Stephen, who was originally standing, eventually sat down and started inching his way over as seats opened up. Genevieve had definitely noticed him but was trying very hard to ignore him. When Genevieve’s friend (a guy friend from college she ran into, used to date one of her friends) went to the bathroom, Stephen swooned in. Guy friend ended up saying goodbye, leaving us alone, Stephen’s friends also left…the rest is history!

Our wedding theme was relaxed and fun. Once we decided on a the location, the ideas and pieces came together slowly as went through the motions…I did not have a defined idea of how it should all finally look, but I did not feel the need to stick to tradition.

My friend did my invitations, we had loads of fun finding the right look and feel. I loved our entire wedding  and having all our friends and family in the same space was amazing. The dress was one thing I spent more money on…could not find anything I liked at all so I had to up my budget. We did save a lot of money on the invitations, my friend did a nice discount.

Herbs, garden roses and others were in my wedding bouquet, I really wanted a natural romantic feel to them. I love peonies but they weren’t too in season and sometimes don’t hold up well.

The only thing I would have done differently is maybe eaten more cake, it was soo good! Chocolate on chocolate!!

My only advice is to have fun! And don’t sweat the small stuff!

Classic Indoor Wedding with a Dash of Glam

I truly believe a sure fire way to a glamorous color palette is to stick to a tried and true black and white combo. It works each and every time. And added to that classic black and white stripe action is a dash of gold and florals by Linda Carson in the loveliest shades of pink. All together, it makes for one gorgeous affair shot by Katie Shuler Photography. See it all right here.

From The Bride…I was going for soft, classy elegance. The black and white table runners and gold antique accents were Gatsby inspired. Black tie attire and my dramatic gown set the mood for the candlelit dance party later in the evening! Formal but fun!

The color palette was Gold, Black & Cream, Blush, different tones of pale pinks with a touch of mint green. The look was Romantic Classic, with tons of candle lighting.

The bride’s bouquet was pale pink peonies. The wedding party and reception area had 6 different shades and tones of pale pinks, caramel, blush, traditional and garden style roses, white with black center anemones, with a touch of dusty miller and succulents. Each guest table was unique by design, from vintage elements, to crystal bud vases, and random beautiful gold mercury glass votive candles.

A few extra touches were added to the reception area: an elegant seating area, a large antique buffet adorned the cupcakes with beautiful lamps flanking the buffet and a unique seating chart, handwritten on a large gold framed mirror with an antique chandelier leaning on the table.

From Weddings By Nicola and GlenWe recently photographed a wedding inspiration shoot at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, one of the most famous luxury hotels in Britain renown for its 2 Michelin star food and idyllic countryside setting. The overall concept was Fusion – Where East Meets West and was designed, styled and co-ordinated by Vicki & Michelle of event design house Pocketful of Dreams.

From Michelle of Pocketful of Dreams… Inspired by the stunning Japanese Tea Gardens at the venue, we worked from a back story of a stylish British couple who had been heavily influenced by their travels to the Orient and set out to create a look that had an elegant feel with stylish and thoughtful touches across all the décor and details, subtly and creatively portraying that Far East influence. We worked with a rich, warm colour palette of burgundy, wine, soft pinks and peach with a grounding base of oyster silk, all offset by plenty of leafy greens. Brass and antique gold tones were then added to establish a luxe/old world feel that emulated a refined luxury.
