Classic Old Hollywood Glamour at Highlands Country Club

Not gonna lie, I spent a fair amount of time admiring this lovely little gallery from Michelle Lange. It’s classic Old Hollywood at Highlands Country Club, sprinkled with just the right amount of glitz and glam. From the Bride’s perfectly hot pink lip, to the gilded stationery (oh how I love the stationery) and hints of champagne throughout, it’s the kind of wedding that makes every guest feel fabulous. Take a peek right here for so much more!

Glamorous

From the beautiful Bride…Our wedding was inspired by classic, Old Hollywood glamour. Keeping it classic was important to us, because we wanted the feel of an elegant, black tie affair. However, I love a little glitz and glam so we tried to inject hints of this wherever possible. We kept our color palette simple and light, inspired by summer with ivories, pinks and blushes. We also chose to utilize pops of metallic gold to bring on the luxe-factor. I love the gold foil detailing on our invitations, for example.

Our venue, the Highlands Country Club, was the perfect fit for us because the gorgeous architecture, columned veranda and ballroom with the most beautiful chandelier we’ve ever seen, definitely brought the black tie atmosphere while also maintaining a sense of home, since we were able wander and use all parts of the property – as if our guests were at the most grandiose house party they’ve ever attended! We added so many special touches and DIY projects to make the space our own. I bought the champagne-colored sequin table linens on Etsy and they were one of my favorite touches because they really brought the ballroom to life. We also custom designed and created many of the wedding day details: our programs, our petal toss bags, our table numbers and all of the signage used throughout the venue. One of our favorite projects was the décor used in our ceremony tree. We strung crystals, glass votive lanterns, which held lit candles, and blush carnations from fishing line, all of which was strung so beautifully throughout the tree branches. We are also very proud of our favors, which doubled as our escort cards. Together with our families, we made and bottled limoncello and attached guests’ escort cards to the bottles. We are both Italian-American, and have spent lots of time living and traveling in Italy, so this was a special touch for us.

Our favorite wedding day memory is our first dance. We were nervous about dancing in front of an audience so we practiced some super simple choreography beforehand. While practicing we kept messing up, stepping on each other’s toes and we were nervous it wouldn’t be right on the day of! Plus, we were worried that Sal would step on my dress. When the time came, the dance went off without a hitch and we had a standing ovation from all of our guests! Our photographer snapped the most amazing photo of the dip and kiss and the end of the dance, which is one of our favorite photos from the whole wedding. Overall, everything went as planned and the day was more beautiful than we could have ever hoped.

Snowy Winter Central Park Vow Renewal

Call me crazy, but I am itching to see those first few snowflakes drop from the sky. The cold, weightless flutter of fluffy little ice crystals makes time feel as if it’s standing still and all is at peace. It’s kind of the perfect setting for a vow renewal if you think about it. That’s exactly what this lovely little family (how cute are they?!) did, all bundled up in Central Park on a wintry day. Archetype Studio tagged along and we’re so glad they did.

Park

From Koby & Terilyn Brown ArchetypeGlade Arch was constructed in 1862, it originally carried carriage traffic to Fifth Avenue. A fitting testament to longevity, this arch was chosen by Katherine and Chris as the perfect place to renew their marriage vows and celebrate their love. The maid and man of honor were their two precious children. New York has always held a special place in this couple’s hearts and I loved that they chose to write their vows on vintage postcards showcasing their two favorite landmarks. I’m also completely smitten with Katherine’s choice of a pale gray wool coat and the pretty pop of color in the bouquet! A perfect snowy day in Central Park filled with beautiful wintery light made a gorgeous backdrop for this sweet celebration!

Romantic Wedding at the Brooklyn Winery

Rustic, romantic, and full of sweet personal details were three things this couple wanted on their wedding day, and in my humble opinion, they nailed it. Brooklyn Winery proved to be the perfect setting and Lindsay Madden was there to catch every stop along the way (including a pizza parlor!). Get cozy and take a spin through the stunning affair for yourself.

Rustic

From Lindsay Madden PhotographyBrooklyn weddings always make me happy! They truly have a coolness factor that is always off the charts. I have been wanting to photograph at the Brooklyn Winery for quite some time and it was definitely meant to be when my high school friend Mike {aka the groom} reached out to me to see if I was interested in capturing his special day with his beautiful bride, Courtney.

Courtney and Mike were married on July 5th in front of their closet family and friends. The weather was beautiful and the city was quiet. Courtney and Mike envisioned their wedding day to be rustic, romantic and filled with sweet personal details. Brooklyn Winery was the perfect location to bring their vision to life. This venue was very organic with long wooden farm tables and succulents that ran up the walls. Large windows provided the ceremony and reception room with gorgeous natural light. Courtney started her day at their apartment where she was surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids, mom and grandmother. Rubi Jones worked her magic on Courtney’s hair and Jackie Schneider amplified Courtney’s beauty with a natural make up look. Courtney looked radiant in her Sarah Seven dress and I especially loved her pale blue Rachel Simpson shoes. She also accessorized her dress with a stunning piece by Twigs and Honey. Courtney’s bridesmaids wore navy, swiss dot J. Crew dresses and their whole look was tied together with lavender colored roses and white dahlias created by Opalia Flowers. Courtney and Mike opted for a first look and they really wanted to walk around their neighborhood for their portraits. My favorite part of their portraits was when they took me to their favorite pizza place in Williamsburg called Best Pizza. They were hungry and being the ultra cool couple that they are, they decided to share a slice.

After Courtney and Mike’s heartfelt ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious sit down dinner. The reception decor complimented the venue perfectly. Candelabras and teal colored mason jars filled with baby’s breath lined the tables. I especially loved the whimsical feel of each dinner plate and Courtney & Mike’s cake was a naked cake designed by Momofuku. After dinner, the dance floor opened up and guests danced to the wonderful music of The National Reserve. The energy on the dance floor was infectious and everyone had such an incredible time. I absolutely loved capturing Courtney and Mike’s stunning affair!
