A Styled Wedding at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel

Photos By: Amber Gress

In terms of wedding venues, New York’s Wythe Hotel never disappoints – that’s just a fact. It’s the perfect home for modern events with just the right touch of vintage nostalgia, as you’ll see in this styled shoot from Events by Melissa McNeeley, Tom Borgese, and Amber Gress. How fantastic is the indigo and gold painted wedding cake?

From the event designer, Melissa of Events by Melissa McNeeley: The idea for this styled shoot was to show that you can put have a small wedding (under 40 guests) in one of their private lofts (ceremony on the terrace, cocktails in the hotel room/loft, followed my dinner and dancing in the Wythe’s smaller private dining room) and still have all the special and luxe elements of a larger wedding – maybe more so since you can put more of your budget toward decor items and have really good food since you’re feeding less people!

I was inspired by one of my favorite stores, The End of History, which carries tons of mid century glass and ceramics. I am amazed that this store exists and is full of so much beauty right in the middle of the west village. They were kind enough to loan me items for the bar and dinner and what I chose worked really nicely with my violet, navy and gold palette. We painted vintage poetry books as place cards, used vintage mid-century tea towels (from eBay) as napkins and vintage furniture from Patina. I felt that something “outer space-ish” fit in with the mid-century feel, especially with such and imaginary outer space print that I found on eBay. There is something sort of wholesome and fun and vintage yet totally modern about it and plus those colors are so flattering as a backdrop!

I wanted it to feel fun and alive so we had an amazing DJ and really wonderful Cellist for the ceremony and cocktail hour. My only complaint is that the day went too fast. We had such a great time shooting this and there was an endless supply of great music that I didn’t want it to end!

Brooklyn Wedding with Breathtaking Floral Design

Photos By: Pat Furey

If ever there was a match made in heaven, it has to be Pat Furey, LVR Events, and Saipua — just consider this wedding to be living proof. Held at NYC’s stylish Brooklyn Winery, the couple complemented the endless floral design and botanical inspired with pops of bold coral, salmon, and gold for a wedding we can’t resist.

From the bride, Melissa: We envisioned a bohemian style with some elegance and fun mixed in. Our wedding could be described as natural and botanical, while also feeling light and romantic. The theme was garden and floral inspired with colors like salmon and coral with gold accents.

In terms of DIY projects, we are both designers so we couldn’t imagine getting married and not designing the printed elements. We designed the save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, seating chart and tote bags for out of town guests.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Our advice would be to figure out what part of the experience is most important to you to put your stamp on it. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from family and friends. Try to have fun and not make too much stress for yourself. People are not exaggerating when they say your wedding goes by really fast, so try and be present in the experience if possible!
