Weylin B. Seymour’s Brooklyn Event Venue

There is something so unique and special about getting married in a venue that has a ton of history. Case in point — Brooklyn’s Weylin B. Seymour’s. This new (but very old) event space located at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge is located within the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building which was completed in 1875. After an award-winning restoration that wrapped up in January of 2014, this space is now ready to host some incredible celebrations.

This breathtakingly gorgeous Beaux Arts Classical building was deemed “one of the most monumental spaces surviving in New York from the Post-Civil War era” by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Located just minutes from lower Manhattan, it features a 110-ft dome decorated with a stunning original fresco, hand-cut mosaic marble floors, bank vault with original vault door imported from France in 1872 and so much more. Truthfully, Weylin B. Seymour’s is as much a conversation piece as it is a truly unique historical venue! With room to accommodate up to 350 for a wedding celebration as well as separate spaces for ceremony, cocktails and dinner + dancing, this space is a must-see.

Top it all off with high-end menu and bar packages, a dedicated service staff and custom furniture packages offering color + style options, and you’ve got what wedding dreams are made of. For more info and to start planning your big day at Weylin B. Seymour’s, head over here.

Colorful Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

A stunning Tribeca Rooftop wedding with a vibrant color palette, crazy cool NYC views and an amazing night of non-stop dancing – this one is for you, modern lovers.  Think drop-dead gorgeous details meets bright fuchsia, cobalt blue and purple orchids from Sky Flowers, all captured by W Studios New York in one very pretty gallery.  Join me there for more.

From the Bride… We love socializing and organizing get togethers, so we knew right off the bat that we wanted a big wedding with all of our friends and family there to celebrate. We chose Tribeca Rooftop for our reception venue because of it’s amazing panoramic views and modern city vibe. In keeping with the city theme, each table was named after one of our favorite NYC landmarks and the NYC skyline was a common theme that tied the menus, place cards and invitations together.

The bridesmaids wore unique gowns of their choice in colors of fuchsia, purple, and cobalt blue that matched the cascading orchid centerpieces.

Our band kept the party going through the night with a mix of pop songs and traditional Polish music which was fun and different. We thought we knew what to expect since we planned every detail, but when it all actually came together, it took our breath away. Overall, it was truly an amazing day that was better than we had imagined.

From the Bride… Kuba and I met in medical school. In my first year, I took a medical Spanish class in preparation for a medical trip to Peru. Kuba, then in his second year, was also in that class and the teacher paired us together. Throughout the course of that year I would ask him for study advice and we began taking study breaks together. The first real date we had was decidedly unglamorous; we played Buck Hunter, an addictive arcade game, at a local hole-in-the-wall bar. Medical school can be a rigorous environment but our playful study breaks were the perfect antidote for the stress of a big exam. It has been nearly five years, and we have travelled the world together, practiced medicine alongside one another and fallen in love not only with each other, but with each others’ family as well.

Kuba was born in Poland and grew up in Westchester. I was born and raised in Greenwich Village in NYC. Prior to entering medicine, we both came from artistic, liberal arts backgrounds; I went to Sarah Lawrence College and studied literature and theatre. Kuba was a music major at Connecticut College. We both wound up going into medical fields that allow us utilize an artistic/discerning eye; I am training to be a Dermatologist and Kuba is completing residency in Orthopedic Surgery. My dad likes to say that Kuba and I go together like ‘skin and bones’.

We wanted to have a ‘midsummer night’s dream’ feel to the reception. Two of my favorite words (for both their meaning and sound) are ethereal and diaphanous and I wanted guests to feel that through the lighting and the flowers. We chose Saipua for flowers because their work has an ‘effortless beauty’. Their arrangements look like 18th century French paintings sprung to life. The combination of Saipua’s aesthetic with the grandeur of Cipriani Wall Street’s ballroom, made for a truly magical look.

From Two of a Kind RentalsThis inspirational shoot took place in the heart of Brooklyn, New York at a quaint venue called 26 Bridge, just steps from cobblestone streets lining it’s perimeters. The renovations to this former metal factory highlight the building’s industrial history, accentuating its original brick walls and expansive wooden floors. We could think of no better place to host this shoot then 26 Bridge!

As a rental company owner, I receive frequent requests from brides who are looking for obscure, over the top, or large-scale decor items to make their big day “pop.” In this inspirational shoot we’ve highlighted multiple ways which decor rentals can top off an event and pull out the individual character of the bride and groom themselves – making their day all about them.

The groom and the best man both wore custom Suitable blazers which are composed of lush velvet and burgundy hues which embody this season’s pantone, Marsala. And since you can’t pass on Suitable’s wedding party discount for parties of 6 or more guys (where the groom practically gets his for free!), we’ve outfitted our groom in Suitable’s custom Noire White Dinner Tuxedo which pairs perfectly to the bride’s romantic, backless Lovely gown.

Our floral-filled garlands, cascading centerpieces and the bride’s bouquet (by Cheeky Details) all shared one uncommon element – the use of fresh Blueberry vines! Our bride’s signature cocktail called “Blushing Beauty” also includes the use of fresh ingredients such as mint, lime and muddled blueberries as well as the featured hors d’oeuvre of the day, the ever popular Smoked duck on sweet potato chip with blueberry-ginger compote – yum!

This natural, artisanal theme ran strong throughout our inspirational shoot starting with the large, over-sized wall flowers scattered on our ceremony backdrop to the rustic wooden pedestals used to showcase farm to table hors d’oeuvres, by Ryan Brown Catering. We also included the use of real wooden votive holders outfitted with tea light candles creating a romantic, candle-lit setting all photographed by Rebecca Yale.

Our bride wore a pedal kissed headband by Hushed Commotion which accented our beautiful, 3-tiered cake by A White Cake. Intricately scripted escort cards and Hudson whiskey tasting menus by, Virginia Lucas Hart, set the stage for our Hudson whiskey bar and sweetheart table. Two of a Kind accents included in this shoot are the “BAR” and ampersand marquee lights, green boxwood topiaries and globes, and chalkboard signs – all joining together to create an inviting, rustic party!

Along with over 80 images from this shoot, all taken by Rebecca Yale, we also asked Joshua Brown to create a brief 2 minute video capturing a full range of movement from the day!

Central Park + SoHo Engagement Session

This love sesh from Laura Gordon Photography is the perfect mashup of stylish and sweet. It’s a blend of Central Park and SoHo scenery and two accompanying looks to match, and seeing as New York was always on the radar for these two love birds, it’s only fitting that they captured these special moments in the city they met. Head to the full gallery for more!

From the beautiful Bride…Albert grew up in Seattle and I grew up in Michigan. From a young age, both of us wanted to move to the great city, New York. We knew it would be a city of dreams and hopes and it was just that.

By off chance, while the both of us were living and working in New York, we met through friends of friends and hit it off! After only a short 6 months of dating Albert relocated to Baltimore for his job and we continued to date long distance. For a full 3 years he would take every mode of transportation; driving, training, busing, and Citi biking to my apartment. That is, until he popped the question!

We recently relocated to Chicago for work, and it was only fitting that we took our engagement pictures in our favorite date spots in New York. Central Park, is where we would love to picnic and walk around to enjoy the scenery. SoHo, we love for it’s architectural lofts and historical cobble streets.

It truly is a dream come true to meet the one you were designed for. We can’t wait to start our lives together as husband and wife.

Autumn Engagement Session

NYC in the fall is the sort of place that is just meant to be photographed.  So add an adorable, in love duo, a handful of yummy treats and a day frolicking around some amazing backdrops and the result is a whole lot of e-session pretty.  And it’s just how a New York City engagement shoot should be.  See it all captured by Jasmine Lee in the full gallery.

From The Bride… Perry and I knew that we wanted our engagement pictures to be intimate and natural, capturing us in places where we were comfortable and that meant a lot to us.

When we moved to Manhattan from San Francisco a few years ago, we were immediately drawn to our apartment in the beautiful Upper West Side. The gorgeous brownstones, young families, and proximity to Central Park made it feel like home to us and it was an easy decision to use it as a backdrop for our engagement session. As a lover of food, I also wanted to incorporate our favorite foods into the day. Pastries from Dominique Ansel and waffles from Wafels and Dinges are some of our favorite desserts in the city and served well as a mid-session snack. Lastly, Central Park holds a special place in our hearts because we got engaged there last summer during a breakfast picnic in the park. It has locations that are so iconic and recognizable, but also has hidden spots that are so quiet and intimate that it made for the perfect setting for the last part of our session.

We cannot thank Jasmine enough for the amazing engagement pictures that she took that so perfectly captured our love for each other and for our neighborhood and we cannot wait for the wedding!
