Jen Huang Workshop

Wedding Design

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the workshop of the one and only Jen Huang here in NYC, where I talked about submitting to blogs and answered other questions and concerns that attendees had about online publication. The two day workshop was jam-packed with precious professional advice and techniques by Jen, each day with a gorgeous shoot styled by Jackie of Merci New York between in-studio lessons. The styled wedding shoot took place at Central Park Zoo, now offering the space as a wedding venue – lucky for you NYC brides! See that stunning Reem Acra number below? It’s part of Reem Acra’s new collection and it’s debuting on Ruffled! Jen’s next workshop is scheduled for July – don’t forget to check out her site for more info!

Below are some of my favorites, but be sure to check out all photos in the gallery:

With the romantic aesthetic of Ruffled Blog in mind, this inspiration shoot was created for Jen Huang Photography’s workshop as a collaboration between the many talented vendors involved. A slight drizzle enhanced the secret garden theme and the beautiful Central Park Zoo provided the perfect hideaway for our beautiful couples Naysa and Whitney and Michelle and Jeffrey. We paired classic table pieces and calligraphy by Paperfinger and draped the tables and chairs with florals by Saipua and cakes by Sugar Flower Cake Shop. The lush, intimate scene was captured not only on film but on canvas by a live painter. The concept and mood was designed by Jackie at Merci New York and all the attendees were able to interact with and learn from Jen Huang on site. In addition to these workshops, Jen will be hosting a couple more this year in NY and CA and more information can be found on her blog.

Mod Palm Springs Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Forgive the pun, but this Palm Springs wedding blows all others out of the water. In fact, it was so wonderful the couple made a two-day celebration of it, complete with — wait for it — synchronized swimmers. Also, this couple has some of the cutest darn wedding favors we’ve ever seen. Each guest received a pre-stamped envelope to encourage him or her to send a letter to a loved one. Adorable, no? We owe endless thanks to our very own Blue Label member Souder Photography for sharing and to Sitting in a Tree for designing such fabulous fête!
