Cozy Winter Wedding at Liberty Warehouse

With the temps dropping to chilly (read: nearly freezing) levels in New England this morning, a cozy wedding like this glowing Liberty Warehouse fete from Tory Williams is just what we need to warm up a little and get this week started right. And it’s quaint New York romance in every sense… brick walls paired with fur throws, Moscow Mules in hand, twinkling lights strung about and an after party at Brooklyn Brewery. It all makes for a gorgeously inviting gallery.


From the beautiful Bride…Both Rob and I fell in the love with the Liberty Warehouse the moment we walked in. It is such a great raw space with some beautiful, thoughtful touches that make it a very special venue. We really wanted a winter wedding in New York and the Liberty Warehouse gave us an indoor setting with amazing views of the city. The space was big enough to accommodate both ceremony and reception in separate areas (upstairs and downstairs, respectively) and gave guests new spaces to discover.

The ceremony was pretty traditional and we choose officants significant to both our families to perform it. The Statue of Liberty provided the perfect backdrop to the ceremony as the sun set over the river. After the ceremony, guests were invited downstairs to cocktail hour in the bridge room, where they were served our signature cocktail of a Moscow Mule. We wanted the space to keep its industrial feel but also have a soft romantic feel and used beautiful flowers by Brrch with vintage postcards that served as a guest book to do so. The colors were whites with hints of pale pink highlighted by the warm glow of candlelight. We created a cozy lounge around the giant brick fireplace in the center of the space complete with fur throws and a hide rug.

Guests were then invited into the reception area where every table was named after a city Rob and I had visited or lived together (London was the rowdiest!) The centerpieces were all slightly different with whites, reds and pale pinks, most featuring my favorite anemones. We hung bistro lights from the ceiling to give the space a more intimate feel and a bistro glow. After dinner, guests enjoyed “Steve’s Key Lime Pies” and “Baked” cookies and desserts, both local Brooklyn purveyors. Guests danced to the amazing tunes of the East Coast Band and no one wanted the party to end! As the band began to wind down, guests found their way next door to the Brooklyn Brewery for an after party complete with glow sticks, fake mustaches, pizza and late night snacks and of course, a DJ.

Vibrant Hawaiian Plantation Wedding Inspiration

We’ve come to the end of another pretty week darlings. That’s right, we’re mere hours away from the Friday evening festivities. But before you go mixing that fancy little cocktail you’re craving, might I suggest you get a little color happy with this beauty of a shoot from Wendy Laurel, inspired by Claire Pettibone‘s stunning fall collection. I’m ready to take a bite out of those scrumptious florals from Mandy Grace Design myself. Get your Hawaiian vibe on in this brilliant gallery, and happy weekending!


From Wendy LaurelA white Hawaiian plantation home seemed the perfect backdrop for the two lovely Claire Pettibone gowns from her 2014 Fall collection. Inspired by a yellow plate we found, we put together the place setting using a weather piece of white wood for a charger, white plates with the pop of yellow and mismatched antique silver. White wood, pops of yellow and blue, a rustic but clean whitewashed look is a Hawaaiana look we love.

Adorable Atlanta Botanical Gardens Engagement Session

When this sweet, sweet duo landed their cute little selves onto my screen, they stole a little piece of my heart and tucked it away in this tiny, but love-filled gallery from Gracie Blue Photography. And let me tell you, it’s filled to the brim. Filled with ear-to-ear grins, gentle forehead kisses, hand holding amongst the tulips and one furry little white friend that just so happened to steal my heart, too.

From Gracie Blue PhotographyMelissa and Michael are such a fantastic couple. Any description I give wont do them justice, so here are a few of my favorite things they had to say about each other.

From The Groom…I love the way she looks out for everyone but herself. How she is more concerned about the welfare of others than her own. It fits well because she is the only thing I really care about, so it allows me to take care of her while she takes care of the rest of the world. That’s why we fit together so well.

From The Bride… I love how he’s not afraid of anything, and he truly believes that–no matter what happens in life–things will always work out in the end. I am definitely the worrier of the two of us, and he can always comfort me and convince me that everything will be okay. Watching how he lives life so fully and without fear encourages me to be strong and brave.

We can play normal in front of other people (for the most part), but when it’s just the two of us, all bets are off. We always seem to be making jokes and running around the house playing with each other. We’ve given up on saying any version of the word “hello” to each other after being apart for any length of time, instead opting to scream, “LOVE!” upon being reunited.
