Manhattan Wedding at Glasshouses

From a sparkling Monique Lhuillier gown, to Regas paper goods, there are so many spectacular details from Loli Events that make this Glasshouses affair one of a kind. Charlie Juliet shared snaps of Rountree Flowers and delicious food from Blue Hill Stone Barn, proving every detail was delicious. 74 Events had guests dancing the night away while Kiss The Bride Films captured a sweet skyline memento below.

From The Bride…My husband Oliver and I met during our first week as college freshmen at NYU in 2004. We stayed friends throughout the years until we became pretty close during our junior year. We moved in together shortly after graduating from NYU and after six years of dating he proposed in the most perfect way at our apartment in Hell’s Kitchen. I am originally from Texas and Oliver is originally from Germany, so we decided early on that we would get married in New York City because that is where we met and where we’ve lived our entire lives’ together. We knew from the start that we wanted to keep the wedding as small as possible – and that we wanted a venue that felt like “New York”, while also still feeing intimate. The Glass Houses in Chelsea was the last venue we looked at and after a short tour, we decided then and there that it was the venue for us.

I always knew that I wanted an evening wedding with a dark, yet glam, atmosphere. I decided on a deep purple as the base color with metallic accents and pops of deep magenta and red. The bridesmaids wore long Jenny Yoo dresses that could be tied in a multitude of ways, so that each girl would have their own individual style. Our florist created the most perfect arrangements for all the girls (including mine) and for the ceremony and reception. I LOVE flowers – an obsession that started with my great-grandmother and was passed down through my mother – so all of the flowers were one of my favorite parts of the day.

Our ceremony was short and sweet so we that we would have plenty of time for dinner and dancing. Oliver is a foodie – and most of our relationship has centered on dinner dates, trying out new restaurants, and cooking at home – so Oliver decided on a 4-course menu from Blue Hill. After dinner we moved to another floor for dancing and everyone danced the night away to our amazing DJ. Overall, the entire day and night were perfect. Since Oliver and I have been together for so long, our families and friends were already very close, and the love and excitement that we felt from everyone was magical and allowed us to have unforgettable day.

New York Botanical Garden Engagement Session

If I had to do a second e-sesh (which I would happily do), I’d take it straight to a gorgeous garden setting like this one from the seriously talented Judy Pak. She captured this duo in the most darling way, and I can’t stop staring. The fluffy blooms and the breathtaking scenery that New York Botanical Garden has to offer, and the sweet way these two cuties lean into each other… swoon central.

From the beautiful Bride…Philip and I met a few days before New Years Eve at one of my favorite Gramercy spots in New York. What was supposed to be a 2-hour date turned into a 6-hour evening of good vibes and laughter. Our relationship was a whirlwind from that point on – from going to Coachella together a few months later (uncharacteristically for Philip, just two weeks before his board exam) to a vacation in the Caribbean a month after that. It seems cliche but when you meet the right person, everything really does just fall into place!

Once we got engaged, we were excited about all the fun things to come. A good friend of mine had an upcoming wedding so I was already scouring the wedding blogs with her. One day I came across this gorgeous garden shoot and I had to find the photographer. I was so lucky that Judy Pak was available for our engagement photos and not only is she very talented, but also an amazingly sweet person. She made Philip and I feel immediately at ease which was very important to us.

We love spending the day outdoors and wanted to find a location that offered a variety of landscapes. NY Botanical Garden was a perfect, serene location with less tourists and rules than many of the other options. It’s amazing that Judy was able to capture us at our best even though it was a hot day with a lot of walking involved to find special off-the-beaten path locations that we really loved.

Now we are working through the details of our wedding day and are so excited for it, but infinitely more excited about building our life together afterwards!

Glamorous Black & Gold Inspiration Shoot

This shoot has it all: an enchanting backdrop, a stunning gold and black color palette and a talented team of vendors making it all happen.  Think magical images from Matthew Ree, beautiful florals from Designs By Ahn and the hair and makeup expertise of Mar from TEAM Hair And Makeup, who also happened to style the whole shebang (she’s awesome).  See every last breathtaking pic right here.   

From Matthew Ree Photography… It’s a New York City styled shoot! We wanted to challenge ourselves to deal with the empty skeletons of trees in Central Park with a black and gold theme. We tried for a secluded and deserted city look. It’s obviously Central Park in NYC, but we wanted to create an empty, dry and even gloomy look of the city that the couple owns it all themselves. The hair and make up is couture, but mostly it’s about black and gold. It’s very fashion forward, but at the same time classy black and white chic. Mar from Team Hair and Makeup did not only the hair and makeup but also did the styling for this shoot.
