Classic De Seversky Mansion Wedding

I love that this couple waited a few months to start the planning—a few months to soak in the wonderful time that an engagement is. My fiancé and I did the same exact thing and I’m so glad we did. And this wedding right here? It’s proof that waiting to plan, doesn’t hurt the pretty one bit. This classic day has a simple, understated beauty that truly lets the love shine, and shine it does in this gorgeous gallery from Betsi Ewing Studio.

From the beautiful Bride…Rob and I met one night while we were out celebrating my sister’s birthday. We were introduced by mutual friends and though neither of us were looking for anything serious, we hit it off instantly and spent the entire night talking amongst ourselves in a crowded bar. From that point we went on to date for six years and on our sixth anniversary we went out to Sag Harbor for a little celebratory weekend. We had made plans to relax for a bit before dinner and when I walked out of the shower, Rob was fully dressed and down on one knee. It was so unexpected and magical. The entire weekend we felt like we were living a dream. Getting engaged is really such a wonderful time. The love and support you feel from friends and family cannot be described.

In order to maintain the magic we decided to postpone wedding planning for one month (which then turned into three) and I’m so glad that we did. To be able to embrace the love and not worry about wedding planning stress was perfect. Once a few months passed, we finally began thinking about what we wanted our wedding day to look and feel like. We immediately knew we wanted the day to feel romantic and classic and be one hundred percent reflective of who we are as a couple. We compiled a list of venues and visited De Seversky Mansion on the NYIT campus. This was our first and only venue tour. As soon as we drove up to the estate we knew it was where we were going to get married—it was perfect. Romantic, classic and intimate.

Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more and my favorite part of the ceremony was when our officiant read the three things we loved most about each other. I can still remember standing there listening to the officiant reading what Rob said about me and thinking to myself it sounded exactly like what I had written about him.

From photographer, Antonio RochaThe wedding of Ashley and Michael was one with a rich history, deep friendships, and memorable moments. Their wedding took place in the very beautiful NYIT de Seversky Mansion. Guests came from all over the world to witness this union.

During the ceremony, Ashley and Michael exchanged handwritten vows. Ashley’s Maid of Honor was her longtime friend, Ashley, who has witnessed the love couple has for each other first hand and knew Michael was in love with Ashley since the moment he met her. Michaels’s bestman, was his college friend, Kwame. They studied together at Harvard and have been friends ever since. Paying homage to their African roots, the couple jumped the broom after exchanging rings.

After the ceremony, the guest were escorted into the library where they had cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. After cocktail hour, the reception started with the traditional first dance soon followed by the New Orleans style second line around the mansion. Since Ashley is from New Orleans, it was a must for the wedding. It was an elegant and lovely wedding.

Lauren of Loli Events… Although brief, Springtime in New York is always rejuvenating and exciting. Everything feels brighter, happier and just full of life. This shoot captured exactly that with a perfect dose of glamour and whimsy. The beautiful grounds of the Old Westbury Gardens was a no- brainer as a backdrop. Everything there is lush, thoughtful and simply stunning. Our goal as luxury wedding vendors was to capture some serious beauty while having fun and enjoy the moment. It is so easy to get caught up and forget to pause and take in your surroundings. This shoot is dedicated to creating a bit of wanderlust and a need to just take a slow deep breath.

Elegant De Seversky Mansion Wedding from Brklyn View Photography

This wedding right here?  It’s exactly why I love New York weddings. It’s sleek + sophisticated, chock-full of heartwarming moments and overflowing with that garden party meets traditional style I simply love to see.  In other words, it’s pure perfection with an added dose of floral awesomeness from Blush Designs and a NYIT De Seversky Mansion setting that is simply breathtaking.  Oh, and the beautiful gallery captured by Brklyn View Photography?  Amazing.  Join me there for all of the pretty.

From Brklyn View PhotographyThe NYIT De Seversky Mansion was the perfect location to celebrate Tiffany and Cliff’s modern, romantic and elegant wedding. Tiffany wore a stunning Mark Ingram Atelier wedding gown that her mother hand-beaded just to give it that extra sparkle. It took her almost two weeks to complete! Throughout the day, it rained on and off but once Tiffany started to put on her wedding dress, the sun came out to say hello. It was also just in time for their sweet & stunning First Look. Cliff looked as dashing as ever in his tuxedo and wore his lucky beaded bracelet just for the days festivities. During their ceremony, the sun came back out to fill the garden room with a kiss of light, and it felt as if they were being blessed at the very moment they became husband and wife. During their reception, Cliff sang two songs to his lovely wife as a special gift just for her. The newlyweds danced the night away surrounded by their friends and family. I’m so thrilled I could be there and capture their wedding day for them. It was truly a magical celebration! Congratulations Tiffany and Cliff!
