From DM Events Planning and Design… Right over the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn you will find the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank. This marvelous gem has been thoughtfully restored from its already grandiose beauty into Weylin B. Seymour’s, a meticulously crafted wedding venue. Each and every nook and cranny has been designed with an eye for detail that makes our hearts flutter, and as you can imagine, as soon as it opened its doors, the wedding community swooned! Weylin B. Seymour’s reminds us of a time filled with opulence, elegance, and style – the inspiration for the photoshoot.

We knew our design needed to be worthy of this extraordinary venue. We started with the basics: tables and chairs and immediately thought of Nuage Designs, whose incredible linens and chair covers are actually anything but basic! With so many textures to choose from, selecting just one can be a challenge, but we felt that a champagne sequin linen would really pop in the space and not conflict with the ornate patterns and colors that fill the main room. We wanted to put a spin on the classic gold candelabra, a trademark of an opulent design, so we carefully curated a collection of mismatched glass candlesticks featuring gold taper candles. The candlesticks were placed within a garland of seeded eucalyptus which formed a runner of greenery down the center of our sequin fabric. While we didn’t want to compete with the colors of the room, we wanted to pay homage to them, so we selected lush blooms of peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus in gemstone shades of ruby and amethyst. Next, we focused on the place settings – we wanted each element to make a statement so we selected bold items such as black patterned china and gold flatware, and paired them with classic gold rimmed glasses. When it comes to stationery, no one does glamour like Ceci New York! The patterns of her designs were a perfect complement to the amazing patterns in the décor of the venue. Our vision would not have been complete without a luxurious desert bar and Nine Cakes created confections that were as beautiful as they were tasty. Dessert bars are all about variety of flavor and style, so to display the two cakes and few dozen small bites we had a blast selecting gold platters, dishes, and trays – some were so beautiful, they now adorn our studio!

As we reviewed our design plans, we reflected on how amazing a glammed up bride would look with all of the elements – our gorgeous tables, the vintage elevator, and the grand fireplace. The bride’s look was crafted by the totally amazing team at Facetime Beauty – not only are these beauty artists talented, but they leave you feeling like a million bucks (just the look we were going for!) If there is someone who loves to capture details as much as we love to create them, it is Trent of Trent Bailey Photography. He absolutely nailed it – we can get lost in all the dreamy photos from this fun filled day of design.

From the Bride… We first crossed paths when we started working together. It was an instant connection. Within just a few short weeks, we both just knew. It helped that we were working together nearly 20 hours a day, seven days a week! Only a few months later we were living together and knew that it would be forever. Kevin had convinced me that we were not going to get engaged yet, because there were a lot of other things going on in their lives. He tricked me. The day after Thanksgiving 2012, we drove together up to Lake Placid Lodge in Lake Placid, New York. We had stayed there a few times earlier and absolutely loved the place. Kevin had originally planned to propose to me in London, but then, forgetting how old he has become, he broke his foot and tore his knee in a “friendly” game of flag football. By the time we made it up to Lake Placid, we could walk, but only just. I would later remark that Kevin was particularly quiet on the ride up. That’s because he had a whole plan in place. We were going to go to a great dinner in the lodge, and then return to the room to roses, champagne and a diamond ring. The only problem is, Kevin has never been good at waiting. And he couldn’t wait any longer. So, right before we went to dinner, Kevin called me over to him and told me that he had one more piece of jewelry for me to wear to dinner, as long as I agreed to something first. Then, down on hobbled knee, he asked me to marry him. Much screaming ensued. Eventually, I stopped hyperventilating and said yes!! To my surprise, Kevin had already set an appointment the following day with the wedding coordinator at the Lodge. By the end of that meeting, we had picked a date and knew we would be married there the following fall. Everything fell into place very quickly after that. I spent an hour and a half one night speaking with our amazing photographer, Tracey Buyce. She recommended the dream team of wedding vendors, which ultimately included John and Will from NuVue and the incomparable David Michael Schmidt from Renaissance Floral. Together with Greta Hovland from the Lodge, they made everything so easy and so perfect. The wedding itself was a three day affair. We brought 90 of our closest family and friends up to the Lodge and treated it like our home. The first few days we embraced the rustic Adirondack spirit of the lodge for celebrations and rehearsal dinners. But, on the day of the wedding, we wanted something different. David Michael Schmidt delivered by transforming the space into a wedding sanctuary. He brought in flowers we thought would be impossible to get at that time of year, and worked his magic in each of the many spaces that we used throughout the night as we moved from ceremony, to cocktails, to dinner and ultimately to dancing with our fantastic live band. All in all, we could not have asked for a better wedding. Our family and friends still rave about the entire experience, and we will have those memories forever. We can’t thank our team enough for making it happen.

Simple and Elegant Bouquet Inspiration + WIUP

Hello, lovelies! Alas, another week has come and gone. But whatever the weekend has waiting, we wanted to leave a good SMP taste in your mouth with some stunning florals from the talented ladies at Flower Girl NYC. Photographer Marjorie Prvl stumbled upon the Lower East Side establishment and, lucky for us, teamed up to create quite the gallery. So go. Be free. And take time to smell (er…look at) the roses.

From Marjorie Prvl Photography… In my search to expand my portfolio, I came across the talented ladies over at Flower Girl NYC and reached out to them. I asked them if they were interested in having me stop by the shop so that I could photograph a few of their bridal arrangements and they happily agreed. Their shop is located in the Lower East Side of New York. They crafted these simple but gorgeous arrangements for me to capture. Enjoy!
