From the very beginning, this couple set out to plan an elegant soiree to celebrate their love. Atelier Isabey was on the job, setting the tone for a gorgeous wedding. And gorgeous it was, if Carla Ten Eyck‘s images have anything to say about it. The whole day teetered on the edge of “just as beautiful as the bride,” never quite tipping over, only because she is unbelievably stunning. As you can see in the gallery, it was absolutely gorgeous!
From the onset, our goal was to host an elegant event for our friends and family but keep it relaxed enough where all guests could feel comfortable and enjoy themselves. We also wanted to give a nod back to our Circassian culture and heritage.
Over 300 of our closest friends and family celebrated with us at the Brownstone in October; a venue renowned for their food and service. We chose a modern fall palette of gold and soft pinks to complement the venue’s interiors. The Brownstone’s beauty was accentuated with an English garden floral motif by Eric Olsen of Amaryllis Event Décor and soft pink lighting by Philip Santos of Specialist Entertainment.
DJ Philip Santos and The Tony Mercho Band provided amazing entertainment and kept our guests on their feet all night long; young and old cut a rug. Lawrence Jatker and Yanal Kazan represented our Circassian culture with awesome music and sound. The photo booth provided by Jerome of Photomatonchic added just the right touch of whimsy to our affair. The photos from the booth circulated the social networks faster than Hollywood gossip.
The final product was ‘a feast for the eyes’ as our photographer, Carla Ten Eyck put it so eloquently. We blended modern and tradition and kept the mood light so our guests could really party. The love and joy we felt that night will be burned in our memories forever. We could not have asked for a better day to start the rest of our lives together.
