Pocantico Hills Wedding by Heather Waraksa
May 11, 2011
Tri State

This sparkly stunner of a dress had me at hello. Actually, the entire wedding did. Captured beautifully by Heather Waraksa, this wedding is just (seemingly) effortless perfection and plays off the backdrop that is Blue Hill at Stone Barns beautifully. It's bursting at the seams with not only well thought out details, but also the obvious love this couple has for each other - which as you all know is my favorite detail of all. For even more be sure to check out the full gallery of images, and because I promise you want to see this all come to life, stick around for the video by Hello Super Studios.

From the Bride... My whole intention was to let the beauty of Blue Hill stand out. We used the tree that was behind the chuppah as the inspiration for our invitations and everything sort of came from that. That's why we picked the color scheme of greens, whites and some greys- to blend in with what was already there.

The circular chuppah was made for us, as I originally wanted the seating to be set up in a circle, but the space didn't allow it. I liked the idea of being surrounded, so we did it with the chuppah. Our cake was by Ron Ben-Israel and we were totally into the tilty-ness and imbalance. Everything we chose we aimed to have just a little less traditional and more fun for our guests.

We were banking on the weather being clear and we totally lucked out that day. Chris' mom had passed away a few months before and we had put her on"weather duty" so we like to think she came through.
