Words are escaping me at the moment because I am head over heels in love with this Bride’s Vera Wang show-stopper of a gown. Like jaw on my desk, falling out of my chair type of love. And the love just keeps growing with every perfect picture snapped up by Therese Marie Wagner Photography. It’s a fête filled with that classic New York style that gets me every time, and when you add that to a gown that couldn’t be more gorgeous? I can do nothing but surrender to the pretty. See it all here.
And it all just gets better thanks to Michael Simon…
From Therese Marie Wagner Photography… Fiorenza & Jason are a gorgeous couple and a dynamic duo. The bride could easily be at home on Broadway with her powerful voice and vivacious personality, which paired beautifully with Jason’s sense of ease and sparkle. For their wedding this couple choose classic New York venues with touches of Parisian elegance.
The couple got ready at The Eventi in Chelsea; their suite decor of vintage prints and stage style lighting was a photographer’s dream. Fia looked divine in her Vera Wang gown with its layers of organza and delicate beading. For the after party she donned a Marchesa gown from Mark Ingram Atelier. Her bridesmaids wore Grecian style dresses in the palest shades of lavender and rose from Amsale. New York florist Belle Fleur created soft, romantic bouquets to pair with lightness of the gowns. The bride gave her mother a little statue of Marie Antoinette as they were getting ready, a hint to their Parisian theme. The groom wore a single gardenia boutonniere, very Cary Grant. East Six Stationary crafted stunning letterpress invitations.
The bridal party moved to St. Francis of Assisi Church on West 31st. for their ceremony. After a beautiful ceremony the bride and groom excited the church with a fan fair of ribbons and the twinkle of bells stopping only for a brief kiss. We just loved the fanned letterpress church programs that East Six designed.
For the reception the classic New York venue The Tribeca Rooftop with stunning views of the Hudson, Soho and downtown Manhattan. Belle Fleur continues the soft romantic Parisian theme with soft candlelight and delicate roses with hand calligraphy place cards. The wedding guests enjoyed entertainment by the soulful Jazz ensemble Arcadia managed by Li Paramount. As a special treat a musical number performance by the bride and her uncle brought down the house.
