From Lindsay Madden PhotographyOn a beautiful spring day, Sarah and Evan were married in front of their closest family and friends at Immaculate Conception Church in Irvington, New York. Shortly after their ceremony, we traveled to the Tarrytown House for portraits. We found a beautiful nook with gorgeous, natural light {my favorite!} and I was able to capture so many timeless and heartfelt moments between the newlyweds. Sarah looked absolutely breathtaking in her Romona Keveza dress (it had pockets too!) and Valentino shoes while Evan’s classic look was made up of a custom tux and Givenchy shoes. Sarah’s bridesmaids’ looked so elegant in their navy Jim Hjelm dresses. Sarah’s cascading bouquet was filled with ivy and garden roses in peach and ivory. It was stunning! Sarah’s mom spent a year collecting different white milk glass vases which were the reception centerpieces. Each vase was filled with beautiful garden roses and small votive candles provided the warm and romantic ambiance. Sarah, Evan and their guests all danced the night away thanks to the talented Live Wire band.

Lower Manhattan Casual Engagement

When the Bride-to-be is an editor at Women’s Wear Daily, you know the style bar is going to be set high. Add in a handsome beau plus adorable pup and you’ve got an engagement sesh captured by Amy Carroll that’s one for the books. A pair of too-cute-for-words shoes and gorgeous hair and makeup by StyleSeat are the cherries on top of this NYC lovefest.

From The Bride…Jake and I met our freshman year at Alma College in Michigan and have been inseparable ever since. He’s a country boy at heart and even agreed to move to New York City with me when I was accepted into graduate school at NYU. (Now that is love!) Last August when we decided to move to Long Island, he asked if we could take some photos with the skyline in the background since we would soon be ‘burbanites. We were under the giant Pepsi sign in Long Island City and it was taking him forever to set up the camera on the tripod and get the perfect angle. He finally came and stood by me, and as I smiled, waiting for the self-timer to go off, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the happiest moment of my life, and he got bonus points for having the camera on video so the whole thing is recorded.

We are getting married back home in Michigan at Greencrest Manor, so we wanted something completely different for our engagement pictures. Luckily, our fabulous photographer, Amy Carroll, had a trip to New York planned, so it worked out perfectly. We decided on lower Manhattan because it was the first place we lived in New York and really felt like home. In fact, The Metro in some of our photos was our first apartment building.

Jake is letting me run wild with the wedding planning, so I wanted to make sure the engagement photos were representative of both of our styles. (Hence, the flannel!) We also had to include our dog, Asti, in some of the pictures. Yes, we are those crazy dog parents. We had so much fun traipsing around the financial district for this shoot and it makes me even more excited for our wedding—but mostly for building our life together afterward.

Chic Fall Brooklyn Winery Wedding

What is it about the Brooklyn Winery that always makes for the coolest wedding backdrop? It’s played host to some of our favorite “I dos” to ever hit the SMP pages, but this particular day planned by Roey Mizrahi Events is guaranteed to give any NYC wedding a run for its money. Captured by Clean Plate Pictures, it’s the urban indoor affair done oh-so-right.

From Clean Plate PicturesJessi and Michael’s big day was the best possible way to end my wedding season. Not only are they the sweetest couple, but they also got married at the Brooklyn Winery, which is one of my favorite venues. Everything was perfect from the beautiful flowers to the cute cakes to the music; the Howard Fishman band is fantastic! So glad I got to spend the day with these two lovebirds and their wonderful friends and family.

From the Bride… Growing up, I never dreamed about the wedding. If anything, I worried more about avoiding becoming a “perfect wedding” obsessive than I did about the day itself. So when the time came, Michael and I agreed on two basic things: we wanted our ceremony to feel low key and relaxed, and we wanted to work with people who were sweet and nice. We lucked out and ended up finding an amazing location and an incredible team.

The first important piece that fell into place was identifying Brooklyn Winery as our venue. We’d been looking at places in and around the city and nothing was quite right. One night I was in deep Google mode and noticed pictures of a beautiful place right in Williamsburg that I hadn’t seen on any lists. It was cozy and rustic and as soon as we walked in, we knew we wanted to get married there. They were a one stop shop for venue, catering and decor – all we’d need to find were a florist, a photographer and music. Brian, the co-owner, and Jessica, the in-house event planner, went out of their way at every step to make us feel special. I really can’t say enough good things about them (or their awesome fried chicken.)

I stumbled upon Amy Gardella of Seaport Flowers one afternoon as I was stopping into her shop just to pick up a bouquet for my apartment. She was in the midst of getting a wedding out the door (but was somehow still giving every customer lots of attention) and I immediately loved her simple but gorgeous style.
We found our great photographer Erica just by looking around the internet at pictures we loved. In addition to having a great eye she also has the perfect “wedding-side manner” for dealing with nervous brides and grooms. She gently gave us super helpful suggestions (like convincing us we’d really want to get a “first look” shot of Michael coming to meet me after I was dressed and glammed. It’s one of our fave photos.)

Our superb wedding planner Roey Mizrahi kept every train running perfectly on time and somehow managed to get us and our explosion of wedding stuff and personal items through the day. The final bit of magic was getting Howard Fishman, one of our favorite Brooklyn musicians, to play us down the aisle. His albums were an important part of our romance and it meant so much to be able to have him there.

Elegant Manhattan Fall Wedding

Gorgeous right?! Click here to see the rest of the gallery!

Club

From The Bride…Curtis is from New York, and I’m from Colorado, but we met in New York City through mutual friends. We got engaged in Colorado, but we knew that we wanted to get married in New York City, where we met and fell in love. We wanted our wedding to have a really timeless, classic New York feel. The Union Club was the perfect spot, with its ideal location, beautiful decor and hundreds of years of history. We booked our venue and our band, Hank Lane Music (we knew we wanted to have a rockin’ dance party!), before we even found our wedding planner.

We hoped that our wedding would feel warm and inclusive, especially since so many of our guests would be traveling. We also wanted to make sure that our guests experienced the best of New York, so we incorporated little New York touches like favors from Momofuku Milk Bar, and welcome bags filled with our favorite New York treats. I cannot say enough good things about the team at JZ Events, especially our planner, Shana, who was 8 months pregnant on the day of our wedding and still bustled my dress like a pro. They made sure everything was absolutely perfect, and we didn’t have to worry about one thing on our wedding day, besides having a wonderful time.

We wanted to keep our palette simple, so we chose navy blue and white with lots of white and blush florals and tons of candles both in the ceremony room and in our reception room. I loved the idea of a romantic, intimate candlelit ceremony, followed by a classy and glamorous black tie reception. Liza at Peartree truly made all of my Pinterest dreams come true, I gasped when the doors opened and I saw the ceremony room for the first time. Our invitations and ceremony and reception paperie were from Alpine Creative Group. We chose a simple design that matched our navy blue color palette. Our cake was by Nine Cakes, and Betsy made us an adorable bicycle cake topper since we love to cycle.

When choosing our attire for the wedding, we wanted to stick with a classic New York, black tie theme, and what says classic better than Vera Wang and Valentino? My shoes were Jimmy Choo and my unbelievable earrings (which I sadly had to return at the end of the night) were Penny Preville. My shrug was from Rent the Runway. Our bridesmaids wore navy dresses from J. Crew; each girl chose her own style so that she would feel comfortable. Styles on B did our hair and Pucker did our makeup – all of the girls said that they felt so beautiful, like the best versions of themselves. Our photographer, Charlotte Jenks Lewis, did such a breathtaking job capturing all of our favorite moments from day.

Romantic Fall Wedding in the Hamptons

This Bride entered the planning process with a goal: she wanted her wedding to be like a “mullet,” serious in the front, party in the back. And that m’dears, might just be the best wedding goal I’ve ever heard. With Daughter of Design and Rock Paper Scissors Events at the helm, this goal was achieved, with an elegant cocktail hour in the front lawn, followed by an epic 80′s dance party to end the night in the backyard. Ira Lippke Studios captured both sides and these pics are practically bursting with pure joy.

From Rock Paper Scissors Events… As a professional you aren’t really supposed to have “favorites,” but… sometimes you just do and this wedding was definitely one of my favorite weddings because it just had the perfect mix of fun, elegance and the unexpected. First, a seriously cool couple: they met in Thailand at a Full Moon party, and their second date was a weekend trip to Atlantis. Plus they are both surgery residents, and yet somehow manage to have a ton of hobbies and make time to travel the world together on their breaks.

Second, you know you are in for a treat when the bride tells you at your first consultation that she wants the wedding to be like a “mullet”: serious in the front, party in the back. The wedding was held at the groom’s dad’s home in the Hamptons, and the couple took the mullet inspiration to have an elegant cocktail party on the front lawn as guests arrived with a jazz band, and a killer 80′s dance party in the backyard, including a midnight swim where all of the guests jumped in fully clothed! You know it’s a good party when the 80′s cover band that you hired is having so much fun with you that they don’t want to leave and stay on to do an impromptu late night sing-along inside the house on the piano.

Design wise, we took a lot of inspiration from the couple. We brought in their medical careers with the apothecary designed escort card table and “prescription” guest book. The Full Moon theme of the party where they met was carried out in the custom invitations, date of the wedding, metallic color palette, and disco ball dance party. Hydrangeas were a dominant flower to harmonize as a common flower of the Hamptons. They had a beautiful Jewish ceremony with personalized vows that made everyone laugh and cry.

Even for someone who does this a lot, it was a magical weekend, the party of a lifetime, though for these two, I have a feeling that the magic has just begun.
