From Karen Hill… Alexander and Crista were married in November, 2013 in NYC. They met in Verbier, Switzerland in July 2009. Raised in London by an American mother and a Swedish father, Alexander grew up skiing in Verbier in the winter and attending the famous classical music festival during the summer. Crista, an American violist from New York was performing in the festival orchestra and on the memorable night she played in a production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, she also happened to meet a tall and handsome boy at Pub Mont Fort – the nightly post-concert festival hang out spot. Crista and Alexander enjoyed a few evenings together at the pub, not expecting much to come of anything since Alexander was due to return to work in Stockholm, Sweden while Crista was on her way back to New York to finish her Masters at Juilliard. Crista said goodbye, only to discover a few days later that the company Alexander was working for had declared bankruptcy and that he was looking to re-locate to New York to live with his brother. In early October, Alexander visited New York and took Crista for a long walk around the Central Park reservoir. Within a few days he had gotten a new job, and within a few weeks he had packed up his life in Stockholm and moved to New York city. The rest is history…

On their wedding day, it was most important to them to have an intimate event with their closest family and friends. Their ceremony was of central importance as they said their vows and entered into a lifelong covenant. The heart of their reception was a deliciously lengthy dinner where they enjoyed unforgettable speeches from their toastmaster, the bride’s brother, their parents and bridal party. Crista says, “the best moment of the day was sitting down to dinner as a newly married couple, surrounded by the people we love the most. Walking down Madison Avenue to our hotel in full wedding attire at the end of the night was also an unforgettable moment”.

Rustic Summer Brooklyn Wedding

When the Bride works at Elle and the Groom is an avid shoe collector, you expect a certain level of style, and this Brooklyn bash didn’t disappoint. Full of personal touches, bright blooms by Taylor Tomasi Hill, and some very chic guests, this wedding captured the spirit of this adorable couple perfectly, and Kate Ignatowski snapped up every minute, so we too can enjoy the fun of these festivities.

From Kate Ignatowski… When the bride is a brand manager for Elle and the groom is an avid shoe collector, you know the wedding will be styled to perfection. Patrice had thought through every detail, including the getting ready room, which I really appreciated as the photographer. The Wythe Hotel room had enormous windows for dreamy light and the blue wallpaper was the perfect complimentary color for the overall vibe of the wedding. Another detail I loved was the guests’ attire – the ladies were all dressed to the nines in colorful, glittery gowns and guys decked out in the sharpest suits.

From The Bride… Our wedding was a perfect reflection of our life; intimate, full of laughter and all about the details. From the very beginning we knew we wanted a small wedding. We wanted to have a destination wedding but it would have limited the amount of guests so I decided to bring the destination to us instead. When we found MyMoon, it felt like we were transported to an exotic location. This was the place! I couldn’t believe we were just in the middle of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. My entire wedding was inspired by the roots and feel of the venue. MyMoon is very dramatic which meant we did not have to spend much decor. With a tight budget that was very important to us.

Due to the tight budget, I tried to DIY as much as I could but for some things you have to bring in the experts. I had a very specific vision for my florals. I wanted them to be happy, a little wild yet very sophisticated at the same time. That’s harder than it sounds! Luckily, Taylor from TTHBLOOMS actually embodies those things and I gave her free reign to make magic happen.

Elegant Winter Wedding at the Bourne Mansion

I had an image of what winter weddings look like and this elegant celebration blew that idea out the window. Held at the stunning Bourne Mansion, the ceremony was outside with the florals and beauty of the bride’s dress showing off gorgeously against the crisp winter skies. Robert And Kathleen worked their magic and caught it all and these photos have me completely rethinking winter weddings from now on.

From Robert And Kathleen Photographers… When Jenna and Alex first met, it could have been the perfect time for the start of a romance. They were living in the same state, in the same city, on the same campus even, both students at Yale. They were going through a similar life experience, she was in her second year while he was a junior. Both of them trying to navigate the tricky terrain of college life while simultaneously laying a solid pathway to their future careers. They understood one another and knew how to make each other laugh. They would smile when they saw one another and, if things had been different, they could have sparked a relationship back then, connecting over coffee on campus or having a first date at one of the famous pizza places in New Haven. But in that point of their lives, while the logistics may have seemed perfect, the timing just wasn’t right.

Two years later, Jenna received an unexpected email. It was Alex, reaching out to reconnect. He wanted to see how she was doing and, though he didn’t say it, he was looking to see if there was the potential to now turn that friendship into something more. By all accounts, that should have been an inconvenient time to start a romance. They were living in two different states, in two different cities, nearly 100 miles apart. They were going through two different experiences. Jenna was finishing up school in Connecticut while he was embarking on his career in New York City. They could have been discouraged about the idea of a long distance relationship, with train rides and heartfelt conversations over the phone rather than face to face. But in that moment, at that point in their lives, the timing was perfect. They enjoyed the long phone conversations getting to know one another in this new light. They looked forward to the train rides because with each inch of track they traveled they were getting closer to one another. When Jenna graduated, she enrolled in medical school in New York. Finally, they were in the same city again. Now they were living a shared life experience, navigating the road of young adulthood side by side.

A few years later, Alex bought Jenna a ring. He had known that he wanted to marry her since shortly after they reconnected so many years before. Now it was just a matter of finding the perfect time to ask the question. He booked a room at the Palace Hotel, planning to ask Jenna in their gorgeous courtyard. Only when he arrived that day, he found that the courtyard was covered in scaffolding. But he didn’t let that discourage him. The timing might have seemed wrong, there may have been obstacles in his way, but that had never stopped them before and he wasn’t about to let it now. He arranged for a beautiful suite in the hotel and when Jenna arrived he dropped down to one knee and asked her to be his wife. Just as she had years before, Jenna said yes. Yes to the man who started out as her friend and turned into so much more. Yes to the life they had started to build together. Yes to the future that she began to dream of so many years before when she received that unexpected email from the guy who always knew how to make her smile.
