From The Styled Bride and Rebecca Yale Photography….Danielle and Kyle were married on June 4th, 2016 at the Ashford Estate. Danielle and Kyle both work in New York City as buyers in the fashion industry, Danielle at Bloomingdales and Kyle at Ralph Lauren. Fashion was a very important element to them for their wedding day. They both attended NYU, but did not meet until after graduation at a local bar. The bride and groom picked the lovely Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ as it was the perfect distance between their two families and an easy drive for their friends in New York City. The day was planned and styled to perfection by The Styled Bride. Guests gathered on a sunny Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a pre-ceremony drink in the courtyard before being welcomed into the light filled white barn, decked out in lush florals and candles by Sullivan Owen. The bride and groom recited vows they wrote themselves in matching his and her vow notebooks. Guests were invited to enjoy cocktail hour in the conservatory and out on the patio as golden hour set in. Guests were then welcomed into the reception by the Craig Scott Orchestra, which was bathed in candlelight and leafy green florals.

The estate has the elegant feel of a French chateau, which the bride and groom played into with their delicately calligraphed invitations that carried through to all the paper goods of the day- program, escort cards and menu by Written Word Calligraphy. Guests received a wedding welcome bag with a welcome letter and wedding day (and day after) essentials kit from the bride and groom. The bride wore a intricately detailed beaded gown by Monique Lhuillier with matching veil with blush and gold tones weaved in. The dress was paired with Valentino Rock Stud heels in nude to give the look a little edge and a vintage beaded clutch. The bride’s bouquet and boutonnieres created by the Sullivan Owen were soft and organic with long trailing ribbons featuring peonies, roses and blushing bride- one of the bride’s favorite flowers. The bride and groom exchanged letters and presents before the first look, the bride gifting the groom new sunglasses, which he wore throughout the day.

The bride and groom had their first look in front of the estate as their parents and wedding party watched through the large glass windows. Bridesmaids wore lovely off the shoulder grey gowns while the groomsmen looked sharp in their black tuxes. The couple honored their families by having a memory table with photographs from their parents and grandparents weddings set at a table by the entrance and a 4 of those grandparents were in attendance at the wedding. Guests danced the night away and enjoyed the old fashioned photo booth before joining the couple for a sparkler send off and an after party in the library with snow cones, hot dogs and favors of Momofuku Milk Bar truffle cake balls.

Bridal Beauty 101: Finding That Perfect Style for Your Gown

You’ve found that dress of your dreams and now it’s time to focus on putting the entire look together with hair and makeup.  Need help? Well, we’ve got you covered, because today we’re joining forces with Jennie Kay for a quick run-down on all things beauty with tips + tricks on achieving that glam wedding day look, no matter the gown or style you’re dreaming of. Let’s get started.

LOOK 1: CASUAL GLAMOUR

Your style? Laid-back with a big ol’ side of sophistication. Which means rocking a stunning gown that shows some skin and hair + make-up that is just as sleek and glamorous. Jennie Kay suggests pairing your dream dress with a rope braid pony or soft low bun that is dressy enough for a wedding, but is also completely effortless.

LOOK 2: VINTAGE ELEGANCE

You’re a vintage-inspired lady looking to rock that elegant lace number, but still maintain a modern, yet sexy edge. Jennie Kay’s tip? A bright red lip for that much-needed side of sophistication and a stunning updo that frames one side of the face, plus sweeps across the back in a beautiful style that is reminiscent of the past.

“Look at the way you wore your hair at your initial dress fitting. It usually mimics your initial idea on how your hair should be.” – Jennie Kay Beauty

LOOK 3: BOHO BEAUTY

Crave a look that is soft, romantic and free, just like you and your wedding? Then this fab boho look from Jennie Kay Beauty is sooo for you. Simply keep your hair natural in wave and texture and add three gorgeous braids for a little pop of WOW.  Want to add a little glamour to the look? Really make those eyes stand out with just the right shade of shadow and mascara.

LOOK 4: SWEETLY CLASSIC

For those of you who want to keep it sweet + classic on the Big Day, Jennie Kay suggests a low twisted ponytail that is equal parts show-stopping and wholesome. Pair it with subtle makeup (like a light pink lip) and a gown that has just a pop of sass and the results are absolutely timeless.

LOOK 5: TOUSLED SOPHISTICATION

Waves are a girl’s best friend and when it comes to a wedding day look that is equal parts laid-back and sophisticated, Jennie Kay keeps those tousled waves down with just a few sweet strands pulled back for a look that is all sorts of romantic. Add some soft pink lips and some barely-there makeup to complete the look.

Contact Jennie Kay Beauty to create a seamless, stunning look from head to toe… you won’t regret it.
