Marissa & Nathaniel’s Wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

Marissa and Nate had one of those weddings where every angle you turned there was something beautiful and loving happening. With a backdrop of non other than the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, planner Sarah Glick from Brilliant Event Planning, Ellie Connell from Reeling Films and the most important thing, a fabulous couple completely in love with each other, you really couldn’t go wrong. They both chose the Conrad Hotel in Tribeca to get ready and the park across the street to see each other for the first time. Marissa, with help from her sister and mom, put on her gown by Romona Keveza. Nate put on his suit and puzzle shaped cufflinks, signifying his sweet codename for Marissa as his “puzzle piece”. After their first look, some amazing portraits in the area, we all headed to Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for the formals photos, some champagne and the ceremony. Their beautiful chuppa was perfectly placed under the giant willow tree by the Palm House, a nice breeze complimenting the perfect day. Marissa planned out a surprise for Nate-a dance down the aisle by the entire bridal party! She also surprised him with a thistle during the ceremony, special meaning between the two for everlasting love. After the ceremony it was time to eat, drink and dance and there was no shortage of any! Their energy and adoration for each other just radiated through the night as Creations Band kept the crowd dancing and having a great time! They ended the night with cake cutting and party favors-custom labeled Seattle Chocolate (which was delicious).

Robin and Pavle’s Wedding at Midtown Loft

Robin and Pavle’s spectacular wedding was one that we will always remember! The bride and groom both got ready at Midtown Loft but opted not to see each other until the ceremony. All of the bridesmaids wore beautiful blue gowns and the two adorable flower girls, (who are also Robin’s daughters!!), tied the whole bridal party together with their white and blue dresses. They kept the energy young and cheerful throughout the whole day. Additionally, all of the eye catching bouquets and flower arrangements were created by Robin’s sister in law, Claire. The decor and setting of the ceremony was breathtaking. It took place on the rooftop terrace and every detail was remarkable, including the weather! When the ceremony ended, Robin, Pavle and their two daughters bounced back down the aisle and downstairs for the reception. Before long, everybody was dancing and having a fabulous time. When it came time for the Hora, Robin’s daughters giggled happily as they were lifted in the chairs. Around sunset, Robin and Pavle were whisked off to the streets on New York to take some dazzling portraits. The red white and blue Empire State Building looked magnificent in the background of the photos, but it was no comparison to Robin and Pavle!

Allie and David’s Wedding at the Central Park Boathouse

With summer soon coming to a close, we couldn’t be more excited to share this beautiful and bright wedding here in the heart of Manhattan at the Central Park Boathouse! Allie and David had captured their engagements in the city with Craig last year and all parties were eager to continue the fun on the wedding day! Allie chose a beautiful gown from Pnina Tornai that fit her just perfectly, with her bridesmaid in a bright blue. She even made her own matching dazzling blue shoes. The sunflower bouquets were a compliment to the color theme-and also Allie’s favorite flower! The couple chose the iconic Waldorf Astoria to get ready in and see each other for the first time right outside. After the reveal, Craig took the bridal party on down to the park after a few quick photos around the city with just Allie and David. Almost time for the ceremony, the party and their families made their way to the boathouse to join guests as Allie and David exchanged their vows with Richard Silverman officiating. The reception followed with great food, lots of sweet speeches and of course-TONS of dancing. Everyone was having a blast with music by MD Music and Entertainment. Flowers by Lenox Hill Florist and of course the day went off without an issue big thanks to Katie Burger of Sara Kate Events!

Katie and Paul’s Wedding at Ram’s Head Inn

We couldn’t have been more excited for this wedding back in June. With such a great team of vendors behind Katie & Paul the whole day went swimmingly! This was largely due to Leslie Price of In Any Event who kept everything in line and running smooth. Not to mention her decor was incredibly beautiful! Both Katie and Paul chose to get ready at their home just down the street from The Rams Head Inn on Shelter Island with their family and bridal party all gathered for hair, makeup and photos! Katie’s stunning dress made by Jenny Packham hung in the window, ready for her to put on. We went around to the back garden for the first look with some portraits right after. The bridal party and family joined us soon after for more pictures before hopping on a school bus headed to the inn! Guests were greeted with champagne and umbrellas as they walked down the hill to the waterfront for the gorgeous sun filled ceremony. Cocktail hour followed, with dinner, toasts and dancing that carried on through the night! At the end of the evening, a traveling pizza oven food truck parked out front and served everyone custom made, wood fired pizzas that were quite delicious, especially when topped with Katie’s homemade and bottled hot sauce! The night ended with lots of dancing and sparklers as they celebrated Katie & Paul.
