If you read BACKSTAGE you know that I went on an on about the fabulous event that I recently attended at The Breakers, held by Claudia and Jennifer of The Wedding Library. Well, today I thought I'd share all of the goodness with you, as they have officially announced their upcoming New York show and I am dying to convince you to go! If the New York Party is anything like this last one...it's a definite must-have.

The details tucked inside the event were total insanity. Cakes by Sylvia Weinstock, Invitations by Ceci New York, Bridesmaids Gifts by Bubbles and Beauties, Photography by Carlos Varela, Mel Barlow, and Allan Zepeda and Video by Open Eye, and Music by Elan Artists, rentals by Taylor Creative (amazing rentals by the way) and little nuggets of goodness like handmade bags of lavender to toss and perfectly crafted mini cheeseburgers to devour. They even had a donut station which was like a dream come true.
But I think that my favorite find of the evening would have to be, the adorableness that is Franklin and Gower. I don't know where I've been without this awesome little company. Their custom groom and groomsmen attire is almost too perfect for words and Paco, co-founder and super cool dude, even made us a margarita so that we could enjoy the product that much more. Although I really didn't need it, it was love at first site.
And the table designs that The Wedding Library crafted, with the help of the most awesome Taylor Creative props you've ever seen, welll...they were flawless. And I was pleasantly surprised to see how well "modern" fit the ornate backdrop of The Breakers. Good to know!
But for sure, the pièce de résistance of the day...was the Kleinfeld Fashion Show. Umm, heaven. Seriously, the dresses were total heaven.

So there you have it kids. Pure wedding gorgeousness. And lucky for us, the fun isn’t over! The Wedding Party New York will be held on February 20th at the Palace and will include speaking appearances by the best in the biz (think Colin Cowie and Darcy Miller) as well as the most incredible vendor line up a girl could ever wish for. And the ideas tucked inside of the event are sure to be swoon-worthy. Without a doubt.
A HUGE thank you to Josh Friedman and the team at Elan Artists including Mel Barlow, Allan Zepeda and Carlos Varela for shooting the gorgeous images above. We spent an evening with Josh, Mel and team and when I tell you that they are great, I am hardly doing these pros justice. We’re even hoping to get Josh to guest blog on SMP one of these days! If you're hungry for more you can see all the video of the event right here.
And lastly, another hearty thank you to Joan Bevers and the fabulous team at The Breakers for comping our stay. You guys made our stay so incredibly special and we can’t wait to come down again for Engage ‘10! We think we’ve officially fallen in love with your stomping ground!
