Elegant NYC Fall Wedding at 26 Bridge Street

I’ve proclaimed it before and I’m sticking with my statement; I adore autumn weddings. Fall is a theme that I wholeheartedly embrace; bring on the pumpkins, leaves and let’s sprinkle gold everywhere. Sarah Tew and Crown Street Productions captured every festive moment of this elegant affair – including Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design’s blooming beauties. Let’s love on fall and these cuties right this way!

From the Bride… From the moment we got engaged I knew we wanted a fall a wedding. But not just a wedding in the fall, what we really wanted was a wedding that made our guests feel like they stepped into a perfect fall day. Avi and I spent a long time searching for every one of our vendors and wanted to make sure each of them would help us to create an incredibly fun and relaxed day! When we first met with Rebecca Shepherd, we immediately clicked and I so loved her vintage-chic style. Together, we came up with the colors for wedding, teal, coral, peach, yellow and gold combined with other fall elements, pumpkins, leaves, etc. I asked her to combine those ideas along with her own unique style, and that was it! I always feel like you get the best results when you let amazingly creative people do their thing and we were so happy with the results. We especially loved our pumpkin escort card table!

Of course Avi was focused on the band from the beginning and when we went to go hear Dexter Lake Club Band it was magic, and I’m not exaggerating. We both got up from our seats in their studio and started dancing. We basically hired them on the spot.

From there things really fell into place, we met with Sarah Tew, and fell in love with her approach and her creative and colorful photography. We loved our engagement photos and were just so excited to get to work with her again at the wedding!!

We worked with the wonderful Chef Rossi of Raging Skillet to create at autumn themed menu filled with apples, pears, figs, and squash. I wanted to feed people things that I would want to cook and of course eat. We got so many compliments on Chef Rossi’s creative food, especially the one bite desserts!

As the wedding approached and the weather got colder, I started to get really excited about our fall themed wedding and began to gather things to help make the day more personal, more us.. We ordered menu cards, table numbers and bar menus. Again, gold, and leafy throughout. We came up specialty cocktails – an old fashioned for Avi, of course, and a pear bellini for me! We decided on maple syrup favors, keeping with the theme, plus we loved the idea that people could enjoy our favor after the wedding! Finally, in the weeks leading up to the wedding, we gathered vintage picture frames for a family photo table and last but not least a typewriter for our guest book table! I loved using Etsy to come up with creative ideas and found some of the most creative and wonderful people on that site! We especially loved our cake toppers, which I ordered to look like us, from Etsy!

Wedding Morning Bridal Suite Inspiration

While there are many parts of my upcoming wedding that I’m looking forward to, spending the morning with my favorite ladies is by far one of the most exciting. Love & Light Photographs captured this joy and the gorgeous gowns from Two Birds Bridesmaid and Gabriella New York just make it all even better. Between Sleep and Awake filmed the fun and this gallery has me more excited than ever.

From Love & Light Photographs… One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is the time spent getting ready with the bride in the morning. Chances are, your friends have traveled from near and far to be with you… and let’s face it – it’s the ultimate time to be a girls girl. Everyone is getting their hair and makeup done, champagne bottles are popping, and you are reminiscing about the old days – the days before you met the love of your life. This girl time is so special and I wanted to create a styled shoot with exactly that vibe. This super cool loft fit the bill with it’s modern yet rustic decor, tons of natural light, and a big farm table with lightbulbs strung over it to bring everyone together. Amy Kuschel’s chic gown from Gabriella Bridal was simply perfect for the scene, and I loved adding fun pops of color against the chambrays and blues that provided the backdrop. Anne of Blade NYC just GETS it. The bride’s bouquet is everything and I had so much fun photographing it in this chill yet chic environment. I hope it inspires brides to think about a special getting ready location that is meaningful to them. To take a second and cheers her favorite people in her life who ALWAYS have her back. To breathe a few deep breaths before walking down the aisle… hope you love!

From the beautiful Bride… I met Jeremy within weeks of moving back to Saratoga. After spending nine years in Manhattan and having my father almost pass away of a stroke, I knew it was time for a change—it was time to move “home.” I met Jeremy within weeks of moving home. It was Friday night. It had been a hard week. It was the biggest dive bar in town. There was a lot working against Jeremy that night, but I had the best night I could remember in a long time. Since he didn’t have my phone number, two days later he asked me out on a real date via Facebook. He said the offer was “non-negotiable,” so I met him, and we have been together every day since. Better still—my dad loves him.

I had a feeling the proposal was coming, but he still caught me off guard. It was the week after Labor Day and we drove down to Greenport for a vacation. We couldn’t check into our hotel until 3pm, so we decided to take a wine tour at Raphael Vineyard and Winery. It was a chilly, rainy day, so we were the only ones on the tour. In fact, we virtually had the entire vineyard and winery to ourselves! Following the tour, we could walked down to the vineyard to take pictures. I’m usually the one taking the pictures, but somehow Jeremy talked me into handing the camera over so he could take a few of me. I remember walking through the grapes in the misty air, feeling so grateful for Jeremy and that day. When I turned around he was on one knee.

Having grown up in Saratoga, and now having our home, offices and church within a 10-block radius of downtown, we wanted our family and closest friends to experience downtown Saratoga and all of its incredible offerings. The beautiful historic Canfield Casino in Congress Park blended the history of our beloved town, along with the downtown location we desired. Plus, since our dogs couldn’t be with us at the reception, the location reminded us all of the walks we had taken them on in the park and made us feel closer to them.

My style has always been clean, natural and minimalistic. Since the venue itself is very ornate, I wanted to keep the integrity of the venue while staying true to my personal style by keeping the color palette white and monochromatic. White, glass vases filled with single arrangements of white tulips, ranunculus, nerine lilies and mini calla lilies on top of white crinkle linens kept the look clean and updated. Additionally, it was it was really important to me incorporate personal touches to the décor so that the day felt personal. We had Q&A napkins during cocktail hour so that guests could get to know quirky facts about us, a specialty cocktail, “The Non-negotiable,” paying tribute to the date that made all of the difference, and a sprig of rosemary on each place setting, serving as a symbol of love and a nod to our love for nature.

In some respects tradition is important to us, while on the other hand, we are not at all traditional. While we had a full catholic mass and a sit down reception, the traditions ended there. I was completely against being announced at the reception (or anything else that drew attention to me), but came up with the perfect workaround that left me feeling comfortable and our guests being amused—Jeremy announced the bridal party! He had the time of his life, and it was one of my favorite parts of the reception! Also, I was completely against cutting a cake cutting, but knew our mother’s really wanted it, so I let them cut the cake. Guests couldn’t stop laughing as they fed each other the cake!

Since our favorite times are with family and friends around the dinner table, we thought it was only fitting to provide guests with individual bottles of Saratoga Olive Oil to enjoy at home with their loved ones !

From Photographer Cody Raisig … We wanted our wedding to be different than the weddings we’ve been to. The groom resides in Brooklyn, and we wanted to do it in an upcoming part of the city. We wanted the venue to be urban, rustic and modern, and we found that in the Brooklyn Winery.    We still had a few D.I.Y. projects left the night before the wedding, so we found ourselves with glue guns in our hands, finishing up a large re-purposed window that was used for the table assignments. Other last-minute craft projects the night before the wedding included placement cards and tying name tags to bottles of wines, which were used as wedding favors.The bridal gown was a slim and satin dress by Theia. It was open back and modest but a little revealing. The bride’s hair piece was from Twigs and Honey. The bridesmaids dresses were blush twist wrap dresses from Dessy, which were great because each bridesmaid could choose her own style. The cake was a macaroon tower from Vendome NYC. We just sent them a photo of our invitation and venue so they could match the colors.  This was a hit with our guests.

From Lindsay Madden PhotographyOn a beautiful spring day, Sarah and Evan were married in front of their closest family and friends at Immaculate Conception Church in Irvington, New York. Shortly after their ceremony, we traveled to the Tarrytown House for portraits. We found a beautiful nook with gorgeous, natural light {my favorite!} and I was able to capture so many timeless and heartfelt moments between the newlyweds. Sarah looked absolutely breathtaking in her Romona Keveza dress (it had pockets too!) and Valentino shoes while Evan’s classic look was made up of a custom tux and Givenchy shoes. Sarah’s bridesmaids’ looked so elegant in their navy Jim Hjelm dresses. Sarah’s cascading bouquet was filled with ivy and garden roses in peach and ivory. It was stunning! Sarah’s mom spent a year collecting different white milk glass vases which were the reception centerpieces. Each vase was filled with beautiful garden roses and small votive candles provided the warm and romantic ambiance. Sarah, Evan and their guests all danced the night away thanks to the talented Live Wire band.

Lower Manhattan Casual Engagement

When the Bride-to-be is an editor at Women’s Wear Daily, you know the style bar is going to be set high. Add in a handsome beau plus adorable pup and you’ve got an engagement sesh captured by Amy Carroll that’s one for the books. A pair of too-cute-for-words shoes and gorgeous hair and makeup by StyleSeat are the cherries on top of this NYC lovefest.

From The Bride…Jake and I met our freshman year at Alma College in Michigan and have been inseparable ever since. He’s a country boy at heart and even agreed to move to New York City with me when I was accepted into graduate school at NYU. (Now that is love!) Last August when we decided to move to Long Island, he asked if we could take some photos with the skyline in the background since we would soon be ‘burbanites. We were under the giant Pepsi sign in Long Island City and it was taking him forever to set up the camera on the tripod and get the perfect angle. He finally came and stood by me, and as I smiled, waiting for the self-timer to go off, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the happiest moment of my life, and he got bonus points for having the camera on video so the whole thing is recorded.

We are getting married back home in Michigan at Greencrest Manor, so we wanted something completely different for our engagement pictures. Luckily, our fabulous photographer, Amy Carroll, had a trip to New York planned, so it worked out perfectly. We decided on lower Manhattan because it was the first place we lived in New York and really felt like home. In fact, The Metro in some of our photos was our first apartment building.

Jake is letting me run wild with the wedding planning, so I wanted to make sure the engagement photos were representative of both of our styles. (Hence, the flannel!) We also had to include our dog, Asti, in some of the pictures. Yes, we are those crazy dog parents. We had so much fun traipsing around the financial district for this shoot and it makes me even more excited for our wedding—but mostly for building our life together afterward.
