From The Bride…Historically, the Foundry in Long Island City produced the metals used to build the NYC skyline we saw from its rooftops. What a romantic idea to build the foundation of our marriage in such a special venue. Besides, we fell in love with the place! We were immediately drawn to its industrial chic exterior and its warm, rich interior. Since Heath and I were high school sweethearts, when we envisioned our wedding, we wanted something that would reflect our relationship: sophisticated, timeless and overflowing with warmth and love. That venue helped us create the most incredible memory we could have imagined.

Our vendors were the best in the business; helping us design our dream wedding in the most perfect venue. Yen and Gary, our caterers and planners, outlined a day that would run with ease. No angst, no stress, they made it fun, and helped build a feast that was eclectic, elegant and delicious.

Our florist, Jenah Barry, helped us envision a whimsical selection of flowers, creating a wonderland garden. The lightness of the flowers was an incredible contrast with the harsh brick and metal. To honor and remember Heath’s beautiful mother who passed away only a few months prior, Jenah included extraordinary peonies (her favorite flower) in all of the arrangements, which added to the love and emotions of the day. The arrangements were lush and picturesque. Jenah also created a natural wood and floral chuppah for our ceremony that was magical, providing a sacred home for our vows.

As my mom and I searched for my wedding dress to reflect my personality and the feeling in the Foundry, I immediately fell in love with a soft, graceful, Gatsby era dress, by Jenny Packham. Heath wore a handsome navy tuxedo. That first look was magical and quirky; much like our relationship. The timelessness of our attire and the beauty of our wedding party was a perfect complement to our elegant vision.

Our incredible photographer, Dave Robbins, captured the moments of love and feelings of the day to perfection. He was creative, yet unobtrusive. His stunning pictures continue to make us laugh and cry. As a recording of that memorable day, we are forever grateful. Joe Petrilla from Oakjo was also amazing. His creative video is awesome.

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.

Warehouse

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.

Classic De Seversky Mansion Wedding

I love that this couple waited a few months to start the planning—a few months to soak in the wonderful time that an engagement is. My fiancé and I did the same exact thing and I’m so glad we did. And this wedding right here? It’s proof that waiting to plan, doesn’t hurt the pretty one bit. This classic day has a simple, understated beauty that truly lets the love shine, and shine it does in this gorgeous gallery from Betsi Ewing Studio.

From the beautiful Bride…Rob and I met one night while we were out celebrating my sister’s birthday. We were introduced by mutual friends and though neither of us were looking for anything serious, we hit it off instantly and spent the entire night talking amongst ourselves in a crowded bar. From that point we went on to date for six years and on our sixth anniversary we went out to Sag Harbor for a little celebratory weekend. We had made plans to relax for a bit before dinner and when I walked out of the shower, Rob was fully dressed and down on one knee. It was so unexpected and magical. The entire weekend we felt like we were living a dream. Getting engaged is really such a wonderful time. The love and support you feel from friends and family cannot be described.

In order to maintain the magic we decided to postpone wedding planning for one month (which then turned into three) and I’m so glad that we did. To be able to embrace the love and not worry about wedding planning stress was perfect. Once a few months passed, we finally began thinking about what we wanted our wedding day to look and feel like. We immediately knew we wanted the day to feel romantic and classic and be one hundred percent reflective of who we are as a couple. We compiled a list of venues and visited De Seversky Mansion on the NYIT campus. This was our first and only venue tour. As soon as we drove up to the estate we knew it was where we were going to get married—it was perfect. Romantic, classic and intimate.

Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more and my favorite part of the ceremony was when our officiant read the three things we loved most about each other. I can still remember standing there listening to the officiant reading what Rob said about me and thinking to myself it sounded exactly like what I had written about him.
