A Wedding That Embraces Greenery in a Big Way

Finding her point of inspiration in summer botanicals, this art director turned bride brought her vision to life for a garden wedding in the city. Adorned head-to-toe in natural, lush greens, the setting felt like an urban oasis and the ladies of Face Time Beauty Concierge made sure the bride, Yasmine completely stole the show. Judy Pak is to thank for every image, and there’s more to see this way.

From the Bride… My family is Egyptian and my husband’s family is Iranian. We met in New York and wanted our wedding to reflect not just our past but also our present. To do this we brought people together in a space that embodies what we love about our city. The Foundry has history, modernity, character, elegance and warmth all in one beautiful space. It was exactly what we were looking for.

As an art director, I designed the stationery myself which helped me set the overall look and feel early on. To influence my palette of colors, textures, and flavors I found inspiration in summer botanicals, particularly olive, rosemary and eucalyptus.

The ceremony took place in the venue’s main space and had three parts to it. For our processional, we did a modern take on the traditional Egyptian Zaffa. This was followed by an Iranian sugar rubbing ritual. We then asked all of our guests to collectively marry us. In unison, they read out loud nine questions we’d written on the back of the programs to which we answered “we do”. It was important for us to feel like each guest was part of the wedding.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited into the Greenhouse room to enjoy specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. We had a candlelit outdoor dinner under a tent in the courtyard. Adorning our long communal tables were low lush floral centerpiece arrangements that we interspersed with a collection of hurricanes and brass vases filled with more florals and herbs.

Food was a priority for us. We created a modern menu that we infused with some of our favorite Mediterranean flavors and aromas. We even gave the cake a Mediterranean flair by decorating it with olive branches.

After dinner, a roaring dance party took place in the main space where we partied the night away with our loved ones.

From the Bride… Our journey began our sophomore year of college. Even though we started off as just friends, from the moment we met we knew what we had was something special. With graduation brought years of long distance, myself a California native and Bennett from Colorado, but finally the stars aligned and we ended up together in our dream city, New York. We immediately knew this city filled with so much love and meaning for us both would be the perfect setting for our wedding. We chose our venue, The High Line Hotel, for its breathtaking Refectory Room, rich history, ornate details and renaissance charm. As a bride you’re always told to prepare for a chance of rain, but we never expected a constant downpour in the middle of Fall! Even though the showers never let up, it created a gorgeous backdrop for our first look and gave the entire candlelit evening a very special and intimate feel. We have the absolute best friends and family who flew from all over to celebrate our love, and we are forever grateful to everyone who took this journey with us.

The Classic NYC Engagement Session

When these two Southerners began dreaming up their engagement session, they called on their love of travel to inspire photos set in NYC. From Washington Square Park to the pretty streets of Soho, they let the city set the scene and James A. of Judy Pak Photography did the rest. Head this way for every last bit of the fun.

From the bride-to-be… Our engagement photo session in New York City was a fun and joyful experience that I will cherish for years to come. Both born and raised in Mississippi, Brian and I are Southerners through and through, but we love traveling and we LOVE New York City. When it came time to decide on a location for our engagement photos, we wanted to go somewhere unique and memorable. It just had to be New York.

Brian is a photographer himself, and I had tagged along with him a little over year prior when he was shooting an engagement session in New York. I carried the bags, suggested some shots, and just took in the enchanting experience of walking around the city. It was so special to go back to this wonderful city for our own engagement session. We had a blast being on the other side of the camera!

We took the photos early on a Sunday morning so there were very few people around. We started off in Washington Square Park getting some lovely photos around the fountain, then we changed into more casual outfits and headed to SoHo. Our engagement photos are special, a testament to our love for each other and “the greatest city in the world”! We can’t wait to go back!
