Elegant Fall Wedding in an Old Textile Factory

For starters, Justine and Miles are college sweethearts and you know that gives us all the feels. Add in that their Big Day was a culmination of his love of modern simplicity paired with her love of rustic charm, and you’ve got the perfect party. It’s a day complete with Pinterest-worthy Bella Figura paper goods, a literal waterfall room, and one crazy-gorg couple. With fine art photographer Kate Ignatowski behind the lens, this gallery is frame-worthy from start to finish. See it all in THE VAULT!


From Kate IgnatowskiJustine and Miles are college sweethearts and best friends. There is a comfort between them that made my job as the photographer so easy. I absolutely loved working with them throughout the entire process and was thrilled to see them so happy on their special day.

As for the inspiration behind their wedding, Justine tells it best.

From The Bride…If Miles and I each had our own way, and planned two completely separate weddings, they would have looked very different. His would have been simple with modern charm. Mine, over the top rustic with a girly touch. The beauty in planning this wedding together was striking the right balance, and at the end of the day, always coming to an agreement on all details that we both couldn’t have been happier about.

The first two pieces of the wedding we booked were our venue and photographer. Both helped to set the stage for all future decisions we would make. The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls was the first venue we visited. Having never been to Beacon before, we fell in love with the charm of the town – flourishing with local artisans and designers. Our decision was further solidified after stepping into the beautiful event space on the grounds. The Waterfall Room offered a simple palette that had enough character to stand on its own, but we knew would light up with early fall floral accents.

Next was our photography choice. Photos have played a major part in both of our lives. We love going through family portraits and even more so, collecting old photographs to keep for memory’s sake. Finding a fine art film photographer was on the top of our list, and Kate’s work stood out to us. Her photographs are beautiful, and capture more than a moment. They tell a story, which is exactly how we wanted to look back and remember our day. Not only was Kate a fantastic photographer, but she also served as a wonderful creative partner. Always willing to brainstorm ideas and when sought out, Kate’s advice was consistently sound and reliable. She completely ran the show the day of our wedding, and we wouldn’t have asked for it any other way.

Food, music and flowers were all tremendously important to us. We worked with terrific vendors all around. At the end of the evening, we couldn’t have been happier than to have seen all of the smiling faces around us celebrating the start of our new lives together.

Rustic + Elegant Hudson Valley Wedding

You know what we love? Couples who give back on their special day. Like Amanda and Jeffery, for instead of gifts they asked for donations towards the organization that supported the Bride throughout her cancer treatment. A day filled with endless love, and a story that came full circle at their barn with a chandelier celebration with Lindsay Madden Photography behind the lens. See it all in THE VAULT!


From the Bride… Mt. Gulian was the only venue we visited and we booked it on the spot. Our vision for the day was “barn with a chandelier.” Casual but still a little elegant. The venue staff and our vendors created just the feeling we wanted.Planning in general, and particularly planning something as complex as an out-of-town wedding, is not something that comes naturally to me. I often found myself frustrated with the process. My best advice is this: work with amazing vendors! I chose people who felt like friends and that made all the difference!

I can’t say enough good things about Jeanne Stark who was our “Day-of” coordinator. Actually, she helped me all year. Then, on the day of the wedding, she took over and made it all happen. Jamie at Bridge Creek Catering was amazing also. Our guests raved about the food. Our flowers were local and in season. I left the design up to our florist, Heather Lundy at A Night in Bloom, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

After all the stress of planning the wedding, I couldn’t believe how much fun we ended up having! The most precious part of the day was our first looks and enjoying that moment just the two of us.

As a brain cancer survivor, it was important to me to incorporate some gratitude to an organization that really supported me through my toughest times in treatment. So instead of wedding favors we donated to The Humboldt County Breast and GYN Health Project. All in all, it ended up being a perfect day for us. Having everyone we loved enjoying themselves in the same place at the same time was magical. I wouldn’t change a thing.

See rings, engagements + proposals galore!

Chic Fall Wedding in Brooklyn

There’s just something about Brooklyn that feels so effortlessly cool, so it came as no surprise that this native New Yorker (who happens to be on team SMP!) chose it as the location for her autumn wedding. They chose September 11th and in the bride words, “I decided we should celebrate our love with the support of our friends and family in a step toward honoring the gift of life and reclaiming that date.” It’s a beautiful sentiment with a beautiful wedding to match, and you can see more from Emma McDonald Weddings in THE VAULT.

From the Bride, Lucy… Since Shaun and I were friends before we started dating, we wanted our wedding to be very relaxed, and a ton of fun! As Brooklyn residents, we chose to get married in Williamsburg at an old-school Italian venue with stunning views. Our anniversary happened to fall on September 11th, and as a Native New Yorker I decided we should celebrate our love with the support of our friends and family in a step toward honoring the gift of life and reclaiming that date.

With Shaun from England and Scotland, he opted for a kilt of his family’s tartan in a nod to his heritage. I surprised him with “The Final Countdown” (an inside joke) on bagpipes and he nearly lost it before I walked down the aisle! With the flowers and decor, I wanted to set a “wonderland” whimsical feel against the glamorous backdrop of the skyline to merge our two styles and backgrounds. The night was so magical and we could not have asked for a more beautiful evening.
