New York weddings make my heart pound faster. It’s that oh-so-special city that takes any event from elegant to unforgettable. And while I could go on for days about just how chicness of this winter affair, can we just take moment soak in the perfection that is this BHLDN-clad bride? Clear your morning sched and start your Wedding Wednesday off right in the gallery of Bia Sampaio’s stunning captures right here.
From the Bride…We knew we wanted our wedding to be small and really feature our city-New York. Our whole vision really clicked in when we found our reception venue, the Andaz 5th Avenue. It was the perfect blend of our styles (Brendon loves all things modern and sleek and I love things with a more vintage feel) and allowed our reception to feel both casual and elegant. They also source all their food and beverages locally, and prepared and served the meal for our guests in their beautiful open kitchen. Our band, led by singer Doug Acosta, filled the night with Sinatra-age standards, and truly brought the whole wedding to life! I planned most of the day from out of town (I was traveling the country with my show at the time) and, while there were many stressful moments, it is absolutely possible! I was lucky enough to secure the most wonderful vendors and locations, who really connected with me and understood exactly our dreams for the day! They made it possible for us to enjoy every minute of our wedding day and not stress about anything!
