Modern Chic 501 Union Wedding

Modern Weddings

Are you ready to be wowed by a couple with so much style it almost hurts just to look at them? Because that’s Jackie and Joe, who wore an impeccable lace gown with pink heels and gray suit with a stylish tie, respectively. Pat Furey photographed every moment of their exciting day at 501 Union, and every floral arrangement was lovingly put together by The Mini Rose. Buckle in, because this one’s a doozy!

We’ve seen a few weddings at 501 Union now, but we never get tired of the incredibly ceremony space. We love how Jackie and Joe chose to add a ceremony arch accented by a bevy of ferns accompanying the aisles!

Jackson Pollock Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

There’s nothing that says “modern” quite like a Jackson Pollock painting. The artist’s drip-style of painting is quite well-known and with the surge of modern wedding trends, we knew this Pollock-style splatter look would make its way in! Mikkel Paige Photography captured the lovely images from this Pollock-inspired wedding shoot and they are brilliant. With a team of vendors like Color Pop Events and Blade Floral and Event Designs, it’s no wonder this wedding editorial turned into a funky and fun minimalist playground!

modern wedding ideas - http://ruffledblog.com/jackson-pollock-inspired-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Mikkel Paige Photography: Dobbin St is the hottest new venue in New York City, located in a very trendy area of Brooklyn on in Williamsburg. Wanting to be amongst the first vendors and “wedding” in the space that opened just two months ago, this very talented team of popular NYC vendors came together to create this Jackson Pollock inspired, vibrant inspirational shoot.

The color palette was chosen to play off the already amazing curated art and colors in the venue: black and white with pops of yellow, mauve, green and blue (“Yves Klein blue” particularly on the front exterior statement wall, a color first mixed by this famous artist around 1960.) Everything in the shoot played off those colors, with an addition of Pollock-like splatter paint throughout particularly on the dinner plates, cake and guest book paper. Two other well known artists are highlighted at the venue including Christine Gedeon who created the mural on the back wall out of tape, inspired by an aerial view and side view of the Manhattan/Brooklyn landscape as seen from the venue’s rooftop, and custom wallpaper by Brooklyn native Sarah Merenda. A blue sequin tablecloth, pink boutonnieres and bouquets, an incredible stationery suite custom designed for the shoot by Bliss and Bone, and a stunning Hayley Paige gown all contribute to this absolutely outstanding wedding shoot.

Modern New York Wedding at 501 Union

Romantic Weddings

Today, we’re serving up another stunner and this time, we’re heading to New York to feature this modern and sophisticated beaut, all documented by Koman Photography. It’s got heaps of traditional wedding elements like breathtaking bouquets by Edelweiss Floral Atelier that you couldn’t even imagine and on-point sartorial choices by a trendy wedding party, but 501 Union‘s vintage look adds in a dash of elegance to this wedding.

From the bride, Joohee: Pablo and I both knew we wanted to keep our wedding close to our home, friends, and family in New York City. After some brief web surfing, I came across 501 Union in Brooklyn, and immediately upon viewing pictures, I knew in my heart that this was the perfect place for us. A week later, we signed for the venue at first sight. Having a background in art, in my eyes, the modern feel of the venue, the black and white walls, and the chic art deco wallpapers provided the ultimate canvas to host any type of wedding. We set our date for late September, and while fall in New York is beautiful, our summers seemingly feel shorter every year. Trying to extend summer a little longer, we decided on a romantic theme with pink and metallic colors, dreamy tulle, and plenty of pink flowers to lighten up and contrast the venue. The weather on our wedding day ended up amazing, so it actually felt like a perfect summer day.

My family owns a bakery called the Runcible Spoon Bakery, and after receiving a degree in art, I decided to take my artistic talents and apply them to the family business. Over the years, while learning to manage the business and to bake, I also taught myself how to decorate cakes. It quickly became obvious that I would make my own wedding cake. Eventually, I also decided to cater all of the desserts for our wedding by creating an entire dessert bar. I must admit, baking hundreds of macarons, cake pops, and hand decorated cookies, on top of making a wedding cake and planning a wedding, was truly a labor of love.

Our entire day was magical – everything went exactly the way we had envisioned and hoped for the year leading up to it. The saddest part of the day was when it was all over. All of the planning, stressing, and, in my case, baking was so worth it in the end. After the day just flew by and our guests were leaving, I remember turning to Pablo and saying, “Aw – let’s do that again.” It was a good thing we planned an after party! When it came to picking vendors, we were blessed to have found a team with a creative vision that we could place all our trust in to capture our day. Pablo and I still constantly find ourselves looking through our wedding photos, because even though the day has gone, those pictures and video still live on and remind us of the best day of our lives – the end of our beginning.

Stylish Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Modern Weddings

Seeing weddings break the mold and step outside of the box is a lovely and welcome thing. When we get served up a dish of unique wedding details with a stunning couple to boot, it reinvigorates us. Abby and Jeremy not only brought the industrial style to their Brooklyn wedding; they incorporated one-of-a-kind wedding details and florals by Wyld that were snapped by Shannon and Elena for Amber Gress Photography that we absolutely adore.

modern wedding fashion - photos by Shannon Roddy and Elena Mudd for Amber Gress Photography http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-greenpoint-loft-wedding

From the bride, Abby: We knew that we wanted to get married in Brooklyn (where we met), but we wanted an unconventional event space. Something that felt like our experience of Brooklyn—artsy, approachable, maybe even a little gritty. When we stepped into The Greenpoint Loft we fell in love instantly. It was the perfect mix of urban and industrial with huge potential and freedom for anything we wanted to create. In all honesty, it just felt like a really cool yet unpretentious place where we could party hard with all our best buds.

Central Park Cherry Blossom Bridal Shoot

Wedding Design

Cherry blossoms have always been such wonderful blooms to look at. Being around only during certain times of the year adds to their darling appeal. When you live in a location that has clusters upon clusters of them during the warm months, it’s a must to get a bridal inspiration shoot together and that’s exactly what Brklyn View Photography did, luckily for us! Jainé enlisted the help of Wild Floral Designs and they headed out to Central Park to spend a day under the cherry blossom trees. They wanted to enhance the soft pink blooms, so a pink jewel toned color palette for the floral arrangements were chosen, along with very elegant gowns with embroidery that mimicked the surroundings. We’re just soaking up the loveliness of this whole shoot!

From the photographer, Jainé of Brklyn View Photography: I’m delighted to share our pink inspired Cherry Blossom bridal inspiration shoot. This was photographed in NYC Central Park at the peak of the cherry blossoms – so pretty! We were inspired by pops of pink and bright berry colors with our floral design. Our bride had two outfit changes but we used the same dress and just swapped out the top/skirt with delicate separates to achieve two different looks.

She Got Scooped Up Bridal Shower

Wedding Design

No doubt about it, this bridal shower shoot is one of the most adorable shoots we’ve come across. Not only is it centered around ice cream (yum!), but the slogan “She Got Scooped Up” is creativity at its finest. Brklyn View Photography took the photos and snapped up all kind of saccharine goodness, literally and figuratively. Color Pop Events was the brainchild for the shoot and naturally, it was a delightful explosion of pastels. Erin Braun brought her expertise along and pulled together feminine floral centerpieces with soft pinks and dashes of lilac and white. If you’re on the hunt for a creative idea for a bridal party, this is it!

From the event designer, Leah of Color Pop Events: The inspiration for this shoot presented itself over a year ago when Jackie of Sincerely, Jackie and I were prop shopping for a shoot she was doing at the time. We happened upon a shelf of vintage ice cream sundae glasses in an array of pastel colors, and we both immediately thought, we HAVE to do an ice cream theme styled shoot with sweetly fun, feminine details! Naturally, busy season arrived and the shoot idea was put on the back burner.

Buckle in, because we’re about to share the wedding of event and floral designer extraordinaire Juli Vaughn of Juli Vaughn Designs. With some planning expertise from Leah of Color Pop Events and the help of some of New York’s finest vendors, the wedding turned into a “color-filled, festive, whimsical event” in the bride’s own words. Thank you to Haley Sheffield for taking these wonderful images!

Bright + Modern NYC Wedding - photo by Haley Sheffield Photography event and floral design by Juli Vaughn Designs http://ruffledblog.com/bright-modern-NYC-wedding

From the bride, Juli: When Josh and I started planning our wedding, the first thing we realized was that we wanted all of our dearest friends present and involved and made to feel like our wedding was the most fun they’d ever had. It was the driving force in all of our details and all of our festivities. Because it was the second wedding for both of us, we chose to solely invite friends instead of family. We planned a weekend of events – Friday night tacos and karaoke instead of a rehearsal, morning yoga the day of the wedding to calm nerves and start the day off right, a double decker bus tour of NYC for the cocktail hour, and a pajama brunch at the hotel the day after the wedding.

Cedar Lake Estate Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The More We See

Right off the bat, I am going to fully confess I fell hard for this shoot cleverly done by The More We See and crafted together by Heart & Dash and Kate Farley Design. It tugged on the endearing heart strings of mine when I saw the first few pictures of the couple waking up together on their wedding day; no worries of “bad luck,” just a sweet and tender moment shared between them and a lovely breakfast of bagels, coffee, and those divine-looking rosemary grapefruit cocktails before heading out to get married. I am so smitten right now with how creative and darling this entire shoot is. Not to mention, there’s so many pin-worthy elements!

small wedding ideas - photo by The More We See http://ruffledblog.com/cedar-lake-estate-wedding-inspiration

From the event designers, Heart & Dash:
The big world of social media allows us to discover some pretty amazing people and places right from the comfort of our sofa. It was on one of my journeys down the rabbit hole that is Instagram that I discovered Cedar Lake Estate about a year ago. It took me all of two seconds to fall in love with the property. So when The More We See reached out to us recently to see if we’d be interested in working with them on a shoot, we pitched the idea of using Cedar Lake as our setting.

Lake House Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

We at Ruffled are unabashedly obsessed over gorgeous floral design (tag us #ruffledblooms with your dream-like florals!) and bridal story captured by Alexandra Elise Photography is one to gawk over and over. First, it’s set in a lake house and The Rowland House has such a neutral palette for this eclectic shoot to shine bright. The lake house creates such a great backdrop that contrasts just right to make the colors and itself stand out. Second, all of the colors are so vibrant and rich. The blending of the blues, greens, hints of reds and oranges were all done so effortlessly. And last but not least, would you take a look at the bloom styling by Stacy K Floral?

wedding corsages photo by Alexandra Elise Photography http://ruffledblog.com/lake-house-bridal-inspiration

From the photographer, Alexandra Elise Photography: I recently photographed a styled bridal shoot at The Rowland House which is one of the Inns of Aurora. This styled shoot was a wonderful collaboration where each vendor truly drew inspiration from the gorgeous lake house. The Rowland House is filled with colorful and eclectic design pieces which you can directly see featured in the bouquet and paper goods. The eclectic theme carries through the unique tablescape, featuring a wide variety of citrus fruit. The aroma of the decor itself was amazing! We styled the shoot around simplistic, modern bridal looks because the house and the florals truly spoke for themselves.

Embroidery and Hand Stitching Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

This is the most darling wedding inspiration yet, and we think it has something to do with all of the beautiful embroidery and handmade details strewn all over the chic New York City venue. It adds such a fun vintage touch and let’s talk about these color palettes! What an explosion of detail (I’m looking at you, reception tables) and I just love how all of these eclectic colors come together so well. Playful weddings like this are always so fun to fangirl over!

Downton Abbey Inspired Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Golden Hour Studios

Hello, self-professed “Downton Abbey” fan here, just thrilled over this beautiful wedding that landed in our inbox. I was immediately transported to the English countryside as I checked out the photos, and my ooh’s and ahh’s just couldn’t be contained. Amelia and Ari’s beautiful wedding shot by Golden Hour Studios had such a classic vintage feel, incorporating the timelessness of that “Downton” era. And let’s not forget those florals by Seasons A Floral Design Studio! The mix of deep berry tones with the lavender blooms amidst the grounds at Lyndhurst Castle is just such sight to love. A Downton Abbey inspired wedding indeed:

Downton Abbey Inspired Wedding

From the bride, Amelia: We wanted to get married in the Hudson River Valley, because we both grew up nearby water (Ari the Hudson River and Amelia the Great Lakes in MI) and it was close to our only living grandparent – 92-year-old grandmother of the groom. Ari and I met working in NYC, and shortly thereafter he was transferred to London. Ari became a fan of British style and I became a fan of Downton Abbey. The decor from the table settings to my hair (Lady Mary inspired fingerwaves) was inspired by the sophisticated style of the Edwardian Period in England. The cocktail hour featured Pimms Cup and tea sandwiches and the floral table arrangements included fresh fruits and vintage vases.

Prospect Park Boathouse Wedding

Modern Weddings

What I adore most about Indian weddings are the explosions of color. Everything that is mobile or stationary has some sort of beautiful fabric draped on it and I absolutely love weddings that aren’t afraid of implementing heaps and heaps of color. Laylah and David’s wedding mixes her vibrant Indian heritage with the history of The Boathouse in a fashion with such finesse that the lovely shades of blues and green used stands out so gorgeously. danfredo photos + films captured the day expertly and The Arrangement gave another wonderful nod to Laylah’s heritage by incorporating tropical florals in the table arrangement and sweetly, the inspiration directly came from the landscapes from the bride’s grandparents’ hometown.

Prospect Park Boathouse wedding - photo by danfredo photos + films http://ruffledblog.com/prospect-park-boathouse-wedding

From the bride, Laylah: It was important to us to represent David’s upbringing in Brooklyn and Laylah’s Indian heritage. Knowing that the venue was full of historic details, we wanted to tell our story with modern touches that drew upon our own personal histories. The color scheme was a mixed palette of deep blues and greens. Indigo, which was derived from the textiles of India, and varied hues of greens, which were derived from the venue.

Stylish Manhattan Wedding on a Rooftop

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Amber Gress

With a bright white room like 620 Loft and Garden as your backdrop, the possibilities are endless for your wedding. That’s exactly what Mary Alex and Keith dreamed up when they decided do say their I Do’s in Manhattan. Photographed by the talented Amber Gress, the duo kept their decor to sleek and simple modernity with some rustic elements tied in. Like those beautiful box planters brimming with ivory hydrangeas with succulents and pink rose buds nestled in or those butterfly escort cards. So sweet!

stylish Manhattan wedding - photo by Amber Gress Photography http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-manhattan-wedding

From the photographer, Amber Gress: Keith and Mary Alex live in Georgia, but knew they wanted to have a NYC wedding. Mary Alex is originally from Georgia, while Keith is from NYC, so they share a love of the big apple. They couldn’t have picked a more classically NYC venue than 620 Loft and Garden, right in the heart of it all. We made sure to make time for us to shoot at multiple locations, so we could capture an overview of them in the city. As you can see they are a gorgeous and super stylish couple, and we’re so excited to share this with you!

Stylish Williamsburg Wedding

Modern Weddings

Pat Furey

If ever there was a couple that exuded style from every pore, it’s today’s couple in this wedding from Pat Furey. The groom’s blue suit is sharp to a T, the bride’s bouquet by Fox Fodder Farm tied with an Hermès scarf is all kinds of chic, and her silk gown by Johanna Johnson is completely irresistible. Color us smitten.

From the bride, Jackie: Mike and I both agreed we wanted a wedding that felt intimate, that felt very New York, that felt very relaxed, that was full of good food; we wanted to share an intimate moment with our nearest and dearest… and then let loose and really celebrate. We live in the East Village and just across the bridge in BK was the Wythe Hotel. They fit the bill with their gorgeous indoor/outdoor space complete with foliage, exposed brick, a huge beautiful bar and oodles of built in ambiance. Fall seemed perfect – golden leaves, a chill in the air and a dream of donning a leather jacket with my wedding dress. What we got was green leaves, unseasonably warm weather and a torrential downpour to tell the grandkids about. We couldn’t help but laugh about the ridiculousness of it all.

A theme isn’t really our thing. Colors on the other hand… Jewel tones are my jam. I love love love raspberry, maroon and deep pinks. Pair that with deep greens, shades of cream, off white, ecru and accents of gold and I am in absolute heaven. That being said, the color scheme really only pertained to our flowers and the place cards. Everyone has their own style and we wanted them to be able to wear what they wanted, what they felt good in.

I can’t remember the root of it, but I wanted dip dye place cards. Some places said beet juice, others said grape juice, some said cranberry juice. Don’t be fooled, when it comes down to dying thick card stock, you need dye. I bought two shades of RIT and got down to business. It was time consuming to say the least, but I loved the way they turned out. Mike hand wrote the names of each guest. Table Numbers: This might be a little offbeat for a wedding but we have a thing with skulls. Tattoos, ceramic skulls from Mexico, hand drawn ones, decoupage plates from John Derian – you name it, we have them. I wanted to subtly incorporate that into the wedding. We hand stamped a skeleton couple holding hands with a heart in between them on the envelope on our Save the Dates. Our invites had hand stamped and embossed skeleton couples dressed to the nines on the envelope. Our table cards each had a hand drawn skull courtesy of Mike. We were going to keep them all and frame them, but a few went mysteriously missing. =) I wanted signs but couldn’t figure out the best way to do it. We enlisted a very talented friend with some serious X-acto knife skills who cut each letter out by hand and and glued them onto printed paper. Some of them were even strung together into a tiny banner for our card basket. Bless her and her crafty skills.

Modern Botanical Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The team behind today’s shoot, which includes Keira Lemonis Photography, Mary Elise Rees Event Design, and Dark + Diamond, was inspired by their invitation suite to create an urban greenhouse styled wedding. Then came lush greenery, shades of pink and purple, and a real-life couple so adorable our hearts just might explode!

modern botanical wedding inspiration - photo by Keira Lemonis Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-botanical-wedding-inspiration

From the even designer, Mary Elise Rees Event Design: Initially inspired by the invitation suite, “Artfully Ever After” from Wedding Paper Divas, I wanted to create a story around something lighthearted and modern. We also wanted to create a sort of urban greenhouse vibe that would be fun for couples getting married in the spring or summertime. We found the Lucas Confectionery in downtown Troy, which has a back-enclosed garden patio, complete with a glass rooftop. This venue lets in tons of natural light and has funky greens growing within its brick walls. Dark and Diamond created florals based around our greenhouse theme, as well as the fun color palette on the invitation. There is also an array of unique air plants scattered about the venue.

Charming Rustic Upstate Farm Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Elena Wolfe

When you pair a barn wedding venue with crystal chandeliers and twinkle string lighting, total magic happens. Jen and Chris, a college sweetheart couple, had a darling wedding with a soft color palette photographed by Elena Wolfe and coordinated by C + A Event Planning, who also took on the floral design.

charming rustic upstate farm wedding - photo by Elena Wolfe http://ruffledblog.com/charming-rustic-upstate-farm-wedding

From the bride, Jen: Chris and I are college sweethearts who fell in love on the campus of SUNY Binghamton. When we got engaged, we were two-young and free spirits, who just finished undergraduate and graduate school and were looking to start our professional careers. We waited two years before we decided to get married, and we couldn’t agree more with the saying, “Patience is a virtue and the best things in life are worth waiting for,” – Julia Spira.

Old Charm New York Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s a lot to love about today’s styled shoot from Julia Elizabeth Photography, Polka Dot Events, and Rose Red and Lavender, but at the top of the list is how very “New York” the whole thing feels. Architectural elements, a chic nearly monochrome color palette, and a super stylish couple bright everything together for a shoot that encapsulates the best of both old and new New York.

old charm New York wedding inspiration - photo by Julia Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/old-charm-new-york-wedding-inspiration

From Julia Elizabeth Photography: When Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events and I first started discussing the feel for our shoot, we touched upon a growing trend with her clients requesting a wedding design that is inherently New York City without being too theme-y or outdated. Once we visited 190 North, a newly opened Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue with its modern Brooklyn architecture mixed with vintage New York accents, our vision of combining old and new came to life, hence the name “Old Charm, New York.”

We gathered some of our favorite NYC vendors and gave them a little background on our “couple”: Late 20s to early 30-something modern Brooklynites, throwing an intimate winter wedding at 190 North. They love how the space’s soft color palette and wainscoting plays off the industrial garage door windows and brick accent walls, and want to highlight these features with minimalist floral and décor that is both sophisticated and understated. Their color palette is dusty blue, gray, white with accents of gold and natural greenery. Then we let all the vendors do their thing! Park Slope’s Lion in the Sun custom designed the stationery suite with a Brooklyn map overlay sitting atop a simple cardstock designed with a nod to 190 North’s geometric door patterns and mix of modern and traditional fonts. The monogram was designed by Allison Steinfeld and the black envelopes were graced with white hand calligraphy by Laurel Hansen.

Stylist Allison Koehler dressed the bride in two Limor Rosen gowns that brought our her modern day edge while still holding onto a classic bridal look. First a romantic low back dress with a long lace train for the ceremony, followed by a playful beaded silk gown for the reception. Her hair and makeup was styled natural and soft by Stacey and Gabby of Once Upon a Bride and all the jewelry and rings were supplied by Mociun in Williamsburg. Not to be outdone, the groom wore a midnight blue tuxedo from The Black Tux. Our florist Rose, Red and Lavender created an asymmetrical sculptural backdrop for the ceremony made from greenery and gold leaf accents. The same look was carried into the bride’s simple posy bouquet, and combined with white flora and succulents. Post-ceremony, we took photographs in front of the classic 1969 Checker Taxicab from FilmCars and amongst the beautifully refurbished vintage chairs by Jessica Allyn.

Our vision for the tablescape was simple yet edgy. We selected metal frame barn tables and gunmetal tolix chairs from Broadway Party Rentals, and we dressed them with a dusty blue satin runner, black and white coup china, crystal stemware and a mix of ultra-modern and ornate gold flatware. For the tablescape we used geometric gold candleholders and simple white roses in bud vases from RRL. Dish Food & Events created the gorgeous (and delicious) charcuterie spread. And what’s a wedding without a yummy dessert bar? Our adorable simple cake designed by Luckybird Bakes was the perfect compliment to the incredible dessert corner by Erin Emmett of Sweet Pistachio. We’re so proud of all the talented New York City vendors we were able to bring together to create such a sought after look. Thank you for helping us bring the vision to life!

Vintage Romantic Wedding at the Metropolitan Building

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Lev Kuperman

Lovers of vintage glam romance, this one’s for you. Lev Kuperman captured Foster and Marc’s incredible wedding day at Long Island City’s Metropolitan Building, a long-time favorite venue for those who appreciate a bit of Old World charm. Throw in some retro inspired paper goods, a show-stopping Jenny Packham gown, and one heck of a dance party and you’ve got this memorable celebration!

From the bride, Foster: Our style was vintage and romantic. We wanted the night to feel enchanted and magical yet warm and comfortable. We steered away from the “rustic” elements such as mason jars because they tend to err on the side of “cute.” We sourced and collected all of the brass candle stick holders and medicine/apothecary flower vases to include table centerpieces and design elements throughout the space. My sister, who is an amazing graphic designer, designed the dinner menus and some of the signage (signature cocktail and welcome sign).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try not to let the little details become bigger than they are. Sometimes we found ourselves focusing too much on the minute details (and to be honest, no one even notices the little things). You can let these things go without sacrificing your overall vision. On the day, the outcome of some elements may not be exactly what you expected but it will all be beautiful and magical. Basically, don’t sweat the small stuff.

Farm to Table Upstate NY Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

The amount of love we have for this wedding is out of this galaxy. Using farm to table elements for a rustic yet completely stylish and relaxed look, Ben and Dennis’ wedding wins us over at every glance. Of course, the images captured all too well by Pat Furey don’t hurt either!

From the groom, Ben: We were going for simple, masculine upstate elegance. We wanted natural earth tones; we avoided flowers altogether and focused on foliage and natural elements that would add texture; my favorite were the dried sunflowers that had been left in the field to dry for use at our wedding — they were odd but stunning…

I worked with the florist to design and make the table centerpieces; I found the lanterns over the summer at Target and ordered enough for use at the wedding. There were two sizes and the larger flanked our bars and our DJ table. We also used them to line our driveway for our dinner event on Friday evening before the wedding. We had valet at the top of our drive and folks walked down the candlelit drive to arrive at our home where a tent was in the backyard for our Friday evening arrival dinner and bonfire.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun with it. There are no rules that you cannot break. Think outside the box (or mason jar as I joked with Kim at Flower Blossom Farm). And use your wedding as an excuse to try new arrangements, visit stores and day dream about ideas, try new foods, taste new drinks.

Brooklyn Meets Nashville Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A bride with pink hair, three different wedding dresses, leather jackets, studded heels — how much more do I need to say? This modern and chic styled shoot from Khaki Bedford Photography and Yellow Rose Co. captures the best that Brooklyn hip and Nashville cool have to offer, and it’s the absolute perfect inspiration for any rock-n-roll couple looking to get their party on.

Brooklyn meets Nashville wedding inspiration - photo by Khaki Bedford Photography http://ruffledblog.com/brooklyn-meets-nashville-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Khaki Bedford: My inspiration for this shoot came for what I felt was lacking in the Southern Wedding scene. Recently moving to Nashville from Brooklyn (along with so many creative peers), I really wanted the shoot to feel Brooklyn-meets-Nashville by bringing some non-traditional cool to the shoot and having more of an urban feel. This really describes my Brooklyn client and what I think young Nashville couples are craving here. The one thing I knew I had to have was a bride with pastel hair – I was dying to find a model with a rock n roll, fun style, with a little boho feel – non-traditional, a little edgy, but still soft and pretty. I also wanted to include as many local vendors as I could.

Olive and Sinclair is a Nashville staple and I thought it would be perfect to include their artisan chocolate bars as wedding favors. Belle Meade Bourbon was also used as our “favors” which was fitting since we shot in the events space at the distillery. Our hair stylist has a pretty amazing taxidermy collection, so the morning of the shoot I snagged as much as I could as a last minute addition (including a 5′ deer head)! She also let me raid her closet and contributed much of her personal wardrobe – including a fur coat previously owned by June Carter Cash. Kristin, from Yellow Rose Co. really got my vision from the get-go and was an integral part in making this whole shoot happen. She came in full force contributing her floral and styling talents and linking us up with the rentals company, amazing cake shop – Nashville Sweets and Sweet as Honey Studios for the paper goods. The Dress Theory was so amazing to work with and had so many gorgeous dresses to choose from, they ended up loaning us three for the shoot!

Art Deco Inspired Brooklyn Wedding

Vintage Weddings

You know those times when you see a shot of a couple and you’re just thinking “yeah… this is going to be a good wedding”? We definitely pulled one of those when we saw Chelsea and Alex on their wedding day captured by Pat Furey. This couple has the most amazing style, and their Old Hollywood-meets-modern Art Deco inspiration has us knowing we’ll be in love with this day for years to come.

Art Deco inspired Brooklyn wedding - photo by Pat Furey http://ruffledblog.com/art-deco-inspired-brooklyn-wedding

From the bride, Chelsea: My husband and I grew up in traditional Italian families and knew, from experience, we did not want a large, traditional banquet hall wedding. In fact, it was important to the both of us that our wedding be small and intimate as we felt that celebrations like a wedding can become more about the impressiveness of the party rather than the celebration of love. We did not want the typical wedding; we were not terribly preoccupied with everything being perfect, serious, and traditional (however we wanted to respect some traditions). Most of all, we wanted our wedding to be fun; an epic celebration of our love that included all the people in our lives who made us who we are. A lot of emphasis was put on the food and music (as that’s usually what we remember about weddings), as well as the photography and videography as that was how we were going to remember the event. I preferred an Old Hollywood or Art Deco vibe for the wedding, but rather than a “themed” wedding I wanted to capture the vibe of those eras while updating the details to reflect more modern sensibilities. I had originally envisioned a party of similar style to that which closed out the film “Meet Joe Black”, but found that no venue in our area (North Jersey, NYC) matched that look. In the end, 501 Union in Brooklyn, NY – while not waterside or secluded – truly captured the Art Deco style and atypical vibe my husband and I craved for.

There was no real color scheme; we tried to play off of the colors of the venue (black, navy, silver, gold, white). My husband wore a cobalt suit, styled as a tuxedo while his groomsmen complimented him with navy suits. My bridesmaids wore blush dresses with gunmetal sequins, thus capturing the glitz of the era (and the vague sparkle in my wedding dress, as well as the gold votives & vases). The flowers were styled in deep purples, rich greens and jewel tones to compliment the venue and bridal party. There were a couple DIY projects involved: seating chart, invitations, and table numbers. My mother and I found a vintage gold frame and used it to frame a grey mirror that we used as our seating chart. We wrote the table numbers and guests in gold pen and displayed the chart on a tall gold easel. For our invitations, my maid of honor (a graphic designer) and I worked on and prepared the design ourselves and then provided the files to a local print shop that printed them out for us. Finally, my mother and I purchased wooden table numbers in Gatsby-like font, assembled the numbers, and spray painted them with gold paint. Additionally, my mother and I used an old bird cage she had displayed in our home that we used for cards and well-wishes. To match the colors of the venue and the table details (votives, vases), we painted the birdcage gold and black.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Plan as much as you can as early as you can. It allows you to actually enjoy this time and not worry about the details. Also, make sure you both are actively involved in the planning process; it can be a great bonding experience. Decide what is important to each of you and be willing to compromise on the rest so you both get what you want out of your special day. Once you’ve gotten everything in order, let go. You cannot control the weather, the vendors, or other people, but you can control how you react to the day. This is a once in a lifetime event, just sit back and enjoy your new spouse, family, and friends. Above all, take time to simply enjoy the day and allow the moment to sink in. The day goes by so incredibly fast that you’ll think it was all a fever dream. Enjoy every single second of the planning process, bachelor/bachelorette parties, bridal shower, and wedding day. It’s an amazing experience and you should be more focused on how beautiful it all is rather than the details and execution of the party.

Don’t miss the film from Kiss the Bride Films:

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Codex,” Radiohead
Recessional: “For Once In My Life,” Stevie Wonder
Reception Entrance: “I Saw the Light,” Todd Rundgren (That song is special to us as my husband is a huge fan of Todd Rundgren, that song was a favorite of mine, but neither of us knew either of those details until he played the song one day in a car ride and we both starting singing and dancing quite excitedly to it. It added further proof to the both of us that we were meant for each other and served as a nice early bonding experience.)
First Dance: “All the Things You Are,” Ella Fitzgerald
Father/Daughter Dance: “Isn’t She Lovely,” Stevie Wonder
Mother/Son Dance: “The Man You’ve Become,” Molly Pasutti
A lot of jazz, oldies, and adult alternative (think Zero 7 or The xx) played during our cocktail hour. For the reception, we had a lot of 70s and 80s dance music (especially Yaz(oo), Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder), 40s and 50s love songs (Sunday Kind of Love, I’ll Be Seeing You – Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday), as well as today’s hits (The Weeknd, etc.) and some 90s favorites (Spice Girls).

Vintage Wedding at Gramercy Park Hotel

Vintage Weddings

All you vintage-loving brides out there, listen up. This wedding (from the incomparable team of Lev Kuperman and Violet and Verde) is where it’s at. Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City was the absolute perfect venue to complement the couple’s vision, and these high school sweethearts ended up with a wedding for the ages!

From the florist, Bridget of Violet and Verde: Melanie was an absolute dream to work with. She was, by far, the most upbeat, sweet, and happy bride and with Mitchell, having been a couple since high school, they were just perfect together and complemented each other so well. They had a clear vision from our first meeting of what they wanted for florals – shades of pinks, reds, and whites without looking too holiday and using a more vintage aesthetic to complement the beautiful venue.

We chose anemones, peonies, ranunculus, roses, paper whites, cosmos and sweet peas to fill the bouquets and tables. Brass lanterns, mercury glass vases, and vintage votives and bottles lined the tables with more flowers placed throughout the tables. Each place setting was adorned with a single colorful bloom for guests. Lush vines and foliage paired with assorted lanterns created a romantic backdrop to their rooftop ceremony. It was truly a beautiful day for such a wonderful couple!

Upstate New York Wedding at Bedford Post Inn

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

Tara and John share a love of discovering new restaurants, so it makes sense that a big part of their wedding day would be focused around good food. Bedford Post Inn fit the bill with both beautiful scenery and delectable goodies, while True Event planned everything and Hana Floral Design shone on floral design. Thanks to Pat Furey for capturing this day so well!

From the bride, Tara: Many of our favorite memories together over the years involve exploring new restaurants. So when it came to choosing a location for our wedding, we knew finding a venue with amazing food and an intimate dining experience was a must. We had been to Bedford Post before for brunch at The Barn and fell in love with the aesthetic of the space—rustic chic meets classic elegance with the comfort of home. When we went back to Bedford as a potential wedding venue and toured the rest of the property we knew that we had found something special. And the fact that a charming stone church for our ceremony was located right down the road in the historic section of town made it all the more perfect.

The layout of the inn naturally lends itself to the intimate atmosphere that we were hoping to create: 4 distinct spaces that our guests could experience throughout the evening and charming guestrooms for our family and bridal party to spend the night. On a perfect summer afternoon, guests were greeted with rosé and Prosecco by the reflecting pool where they enjoyed passed canapes and an instrumental set by The Silver Arrow Band. They then moved into the main Farmhouse Dining Room for dinner. We played to the natural romantic setting of the dining room by focusing on the lighting, table settings, and music. The goal for dinner was to share a proper seated meal with family and friends to give everyone a chance to enjoy the food and conversation before moving outside for live music and dancing. The rustic wood tables were lined with lanterns and votives and decorated with garlands of eucalyptus, jasmine vines, and various greens. Tucked among the greens were blooms of neutral/blush roses. Guests dined on Campagna staples, including cappelletti, lobster, and filet of beef. A speakeasy style lounge adjacent to the dining room was the perfect meeting place for friends to catch-up over a martini or Manhattan.

After dinner, guests were ushered outside to the patio. Under a clear tent adorned with bistro lights, family and friends enjoyed live music by The Silver Arrow Band who had everyone up on their feet. An extra touch was the dessert bar located off the dance floor, which was stocked with delicious treats. For those who wanted to keep the party going, the Barn’s loft space and adjacent garden transformed into the ideal summer night after party. In the loft, NYC DJ Michelle von Mandel supplied the perfect feel-good beachy tunes for those who were up for a late night dance party. Through the large farmhouse loft doors the music spilled out into the garden where a roaring fire pit made for a relaxed setting for those who wanted to lounge and enjoy a late night cocktail / snack. We could not have imagined a more incredible day and feel so fortunate to have shared it with our closest family and friends. A huge thank you to the extremely talented True Event, Hana Floral, and Bedford Post team for helping us to create and achieve our vision and to Pat Furey Photography for putting their unique lens on the day.

NYC Brunch Garden Wedding

Garden Weddings

It’s hard to beat getting ready at The Wythe Hotel, celebrating with friends and family while enjoying a delicious brunch, and an after-party at a bowling alley, and that’s the exact day that was in store for Angie and Domingo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Redfield Photography captured the whole day and Sprout Home did excellent work as always with the floral design!

From the bride, Angie: The overarching theme of our engagement & wedding was “The Perfect Recipe.” We love to cook and love good food and in the end wanted that to be reflected by our small personal touches. Domingo and I are big fans of cooking and eating, delicious food. He makes breakfast every morning (which he continued to vow to do!) and I try my best to make dinner at night. Because of this, we wanted our wedding to reflect this love that we have for all things food. Additionally, we’re really early risers (he proposed at 8:16am over breakfast and when I sent out the announcement texts the majority of our friends responded with “LET US SLEEP!” and “WHY SOO EARLY??” instead of the expected “CONGRATULATIONS!”), so we knew we wanted a day wedding. We wanted to be able to take advantage of the day and the sun, and do as much as possible.

Funny thing, I had asked my husband-to-be at the time, on a whim, that if he could select one thing about our wedding, what would it be…without a second thought; he announced that he would want the wedding to take place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He had lived in Williamsburg while he was in college and loved it. Had a real soft spot for the neighborhood. It wasn’t too hard to convince me as Williamsburg has awesome eateries. So, despite NOT living in Williamsburg, we took ourselves to Brooklyn. Now that we had a general location and theme, it made searching for a venue a bit easier – our options were narrowed down. We had agreed that we wanted something that felt intimate. After a bit of research, we stumbled upon Aurora Ristorante. We already knew we wanted a day wedding and reception, however…we figured it would be easier to checkout the venue in the evening during the week. One evening, we decide to go scope it out and when we walked in, we were completely disillusioned… not because the space isn’t beautiful, IT IS, it was just too dark for what I wanted, and I was sad. But Domingo convinced me to give it another shot and go during the day. We did just that! The following week, we took another visit to Williamsburg to have brunch at Aurora and COMPLETELY LOVED IT! As in floored by the greenery, the space, the rustic-ness and the food was amazing! It obviously all worked out in the end but goes to show you how visiting a venue during the envisioned time of day, really plays a big part in making the decision.

We got married May 23 and Domingo’s birthday was May 19. While the wedding itself was amazing and we were on cloud nine, I have to admit that the best part of the day for me was surprising my husband with a birthday cake at Brooklyn Bowl (at the after party). We were both so consumed with all things wedding, he thought I had either opted to celebrate his birthday by, well, marrying him, OR that it just wasn’t worth making a big deal of it (his 30th), because he was getting married! In either case, he was completely blown away and genuinely surprised that I had arranged the delivery of his favorite cake and that we acknowledged his birthday. It was the best feeling in the world, because he’s always surprising me and I was really happy to be able to do the same for him (for once)! While in the end, we were extremely happy with the results; so much sweat and time went into creating the personal touches throughout the event. I did everything from the ceremony backdrop to the burned initials on the wooden spoons, with Domingo’s company on tow (he tried to help and failed – he’s a charmer, not creative). We got to spend some serious time together while I completed these tasks.

Friendsgiving Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jonica Moore

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, which means we’ve got lots of delicious tablescapes to look forward to. This shoot from Jonica Moore, Dawn Mauberret, and Sweet Thorn Flora explores the dramatic side of autumn weddings, and we think it works perfectly for a Friendsgiving event with the besties too. Be sure to keep an eye out for the incredible dip dyed veil!

From the shoot’s concept designer, Kerry Ann Stokes: The Moody Romantics styled shoot was inspired by dark fairytales and the beauty of nature found deep in the woods – maybe where you least expect it. Both décor and wardrobe are rich in texture-including furs, satin-faced chiffon, lace, quartz, lush florals, and taxidermy insects. This shoot is packed with detail, a love for the handmade, and vintage items. Dreamt up by accessories designer Kerry Ann Stokes and brought to life by a team of creatives, mobilized by Dawn Mauberret Events. This shoot sets the mood for a dreamy and romantic fall wedding—all beautifully captured by Jonica Moore Studio.

The color palette is rich and dark hued-highlighting deep reds, and Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala. For the wedding dresses we pulled a Rue De Seine dress with a delicate lace over a beige slip and one of Leanne Marshall’s creamy and silky dresses from Lovely Bride. We paired the first look (Rue De Seine) with a deep wine dip-dyed silk tulle veil and dark beaded crown from Kerry Ann Stokes. Sophie Hughes provided some killer jewelry for the shoot, including a custom Black Beauty Diamond Ring (we were all wide-eyed over it), black diamond bands, and fused metal pieces. For the second look (Leanne Marshall) we topped the dress with a fur shawl and a natural quartz headpiece. The bridesmaids wore maroon (Ash and Light) and black (Nordstrom) dresses, along with coordinating jewelry, leather flower hairpins, a beaded headpiece. Hair (by Stephanie Kauffman) and makeup (by MauberretFX) have a beautiful witchy vibe. Sweet Thorn Flora nailed it with the floral arrangements, which included deep toned florals mixed with lush greens and blush accents. Peonies, blackberries, thistle, ranunculus, and ferns were utilized and mixed with taxidermy insects (courtesy of Hoardaculture) and antlers-definitely making a dramatic statement.

The Grand was the perfect location for this shoot, and included a long wooden banquet table, rustic seating, exposed brick walls, a deep green pin-tuck cushion booth, and some in house taxidermy wall mounts. They cooked up a menu full of color for every course. Oysters for the cocktail hour with some fall inspired signature cocktails, a black kale salad to start, and braised ribs for the main-all served up on vintage plates and glassware from Eleven Thirty Six. For the dessert we decided to forego the traditional cake and have a table of pies and tarts instead. Deep colored berries and elaborate crust designs made for a beautiful sweets table thanks to Cutie Pies NYC. The maroon and rose-colored invites were designed by Of Note Stationers — who also supplied some stationery (Can’t Do This Without You, Dazzle, and It’s Your Day cards). Our signage was all hand painted by Kristin Texteria onto vintage mirrors, including the one large mirror in the venue. The escort cards are strung from butterflies and pinned inside vintage frames. Needless to say, a lot of talented vendors came together on this moody and romantic wedding inspiration shoot and the end result is truly inspiring!

Black Tie Wedding with Watercolor Details

Garden Weddings

It isn’t every day you come across a wedding with a dream team as good as Nick Radford, Firefly Events, and Violet and Verde, so we’re thrilled to be sharing Emily and Matt’s wedding with you all! This creative couple hired some of the Northeast’s most talented vendors to bring their dream day to fruition, using a color palette of neutrals like ivory, blush pink, and pale peach. We absolutely love the result!

From the event designers, Firefly Events: It was such a pleasure to be a part of Emily + Matt’s love story! These two have an energy that is truly contagious, and we were eager to bring their fun and creative spirit to the forefront of their wedding day.

Caramoor provided a stunning natural backdrop for the happy couple to exchange their vows and dance the night away with their nearest and dearest. The ceremony was truly a family affair with Emily’s older brother officiating, her younger brother playing guitar for the processional, and both Emily’s sister, and Matt’s brother serving as maid of honor and best man. In fact, one thing that drew them to Caramoor for the site of their wedding, was the fact that Emily’s Grandpa lives just a few minutes away, and the family had spent time here when Emily was a child.

Some of our favorite details of the night included hand dyed napkins and hand painted escort cards, both in soft shades of pink and peach to offset all the beautiful florals and soft candle light from Violet + Verde. Romantic calligraphy from Anne Robin could be found throughout the wedding, including the invitations, the escort cards, placed at each guest’s seat.

Dinner Party Wedding at Brooklyn Winery

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

M2 Photography

Taylor and Jake had a very simple vision for their wedding day: a delicious dinner with loved ones where everyone gets to dress up, dance, and eat cake. What could be more perfect than that? M2 Photography, Square Mile Events, and Designs by Ahn were all brought on board to help out on the big day, and they all worked wonders — though we have to give special credit to the incredible floral design that still has us reeling!

From the bride, Taylor: We originally wanted to get married upstate somewhere outdoors, but the travel for our guests felt unnecessary. Jake’s family was flying in from Australia and we wanted our guests to be able to relax once they go to New York and to enjoy the city we love so much. Brooklyn Winery checked off all of our boxes. It was rustic and immediately personal. Every staff member was genuinely excited for us, they felt like an extension of the guests. We wanted to hit that sweet spot of making it comfortable and approachable for us but formal enough that it felt like a wedding. The flowers really made that difference! It was like a great dinner with great food and all your friends and family got to dress up. Our friend Francis Lombardi played original music and covers during the cocktail hour. We are friends from college so to have him play at our wedding and bring everyone together was really sentimental. Then we go to just kick it and dance and laugh and eat cake. It was perfect!

Flower recipe: My bouquet was a mix of sweet pea, astilbe, lisianthus, tuberose, jasmine, passion vine and ranunculus, all in shades of white. The chuppah was made of birch and decorated in hydrangeas, lisianthus, passion vine, dahlia and green vines to coordinate with the winery. The table arrangements were a colorful mix of my bouquet plus dahlias, and the groomsmen wore yellow garden roses to pay respect to the groom’s grandfather who tended and grew garden roses at his home and wore one in his suit everyday.

We really wanted the guests to feel like they had walked into a big house out in the country, where we would be eating from the farm and decorating the space with flowers from the garden. It was full of nostalgia. Oak barrels and repurposed wood from a church was used on the walls to make the space more inviting. In the dining room there is a wall filled with plants to make you feel as though you are outside. It was very romantic and personal. The dance floor was right next to the bar to encourage the guests to mingle and get to know each other.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Wear what you want, eat what you want, play your favorite music. The day really does go by in a flash, so the more if feels authentic and comfortable then the more easy it will be to relax and enjoy it. And hire a good photographer and videographer! You can’t be everywhere at once on your wedding day and being able to look back and watch my father’s speech or see my best friends laughing and enjoying themselves, it really is a gift I’ll treasure for years.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “The Wedding Song,” Peter Paul and Mary
Recessional: “Pompeii,” Bastille
First Dance: “Latch,” Sam Smith (acoustic)
Music is so important to us. It is something that as a couple we bond over, going to shows, discovering new band, etc… Scratch actually told us that they’d never received so many song requests from a couple before…oopps. I love soul and 90’s hip hop and r&b, he loves alternative rock. We played everything from Kings of Leon, Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Chaka Khan, NIN, Paramore, Rihanna and all that new fun music like Zedd and Kid Cudi. Then our DJ freestyled with some great club mixes and mashups for the last hour. Things got crazy in a good way! Bring on the dance circles!

From the photographer, Melissa of M2 Photography: Bride and groom both wanted more of a dinner party feel for their wedding, the “anti cookie-cutter wedding” if you will. Taylor is a pastry chef for the world-renowned chef Jean Georges and Jake is a self-described food snob so they knew their wedding had to incorporate an amazing menu and wanted a focus on the food and beverage. One challenge Jake and Taylor faced was figuring out a way to tastefully blend their inter-faith marriage. Taylor is Catholic and Jake is Jewish so they incorporated both a Priest and a Rabbi into their ceremony. Taylor also spent a few minutes privately with her twin sister and parents at their UWS church prior to heading to her wedding. When it came to choosing the location to host their wedding, Taylor wanted to make sure she had more of a hipster-vibe at her wedding in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Winery was the perfect location. Taylor was adamant about not having a wedding cake at all – until Jean George’s head baker offered to bake her a cake as a wedding gift. Jake’s gift to Taylor was a long weekend trip to Paris. Taylor’s career as a pastry chef has made Paris a dream vacation destination for them both. Flowers: Designs by Ahn used an assortment of orange dahlia and yellow ranunculus as well as Juliet garden roses. Taylor and Jake’s color palette was vibrant yellow and orange flowers as well as cream, blush and pale pink accents. They had a birch wood chuppah decorated with branches, hydrangea, stock, lisianthus passion vine and orange dahlias. Their wedding style aesthetic was fresh, modern and timeless.

When the inspiration calls for cool blues and grays with a European influence, you can count on me to be interested. The Big Fake Wedding recently headed to New York City for a bash to remember, overflowing with details and ideas that combined this modern city with the romantic European skies. There’s lots to see, so let’s get started!

Whimsical New York Wedding at MyMoon

Whimsical Weddings

Have we mentioned how much we love MyMoon? It’s the ultimate Brooklyn destination for a modern rooftop wedding, and we’ve never seen an event there that didn’t deliver the goods. Take today’s wedding from Khaki Bedford Photography, Sprout, and Dawn Mauberret, for example — geometric details, balloon table numbers, succulent floral arrangements, and ice cream sandwiches to top everything off at night. It doesn’t get much better than this!

whimsical New York wedding at MyMoon - photo by Khaki Bedford Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimiscal-new-york-wedding-at-mymoon

From the bride, Tiffany: We wanted something that was playful, romantic and unique, with a bit of whimsy and lots of details. I made up the term “Urban Mediterranean Garden” to explain what I was thinking! I wanted succulent terrariums, pops of bold uplifting color, gold/bronze metallics and a mix of shapes – from diamond inspired geometrics to big round balloons. And some ampersands. Somehow it came together! It was important to remember that the venue already looked amazing without any decorations (which was why we booked there!), so less was more at times. I tried to make sure the stuff I was adding would complement the already unique look of the venue. The color scheme was inspired by succulents and the sea: shades of teals and greens, with a little pop of shimmery gold for festivity.

I wanted a bouquet that featured succulents with pops of color – Sprout Home did an amazing job by combining a unique combination of greenery and unique seasonal flowers. The terrarium centerpieces created by Sprout had a succulent base with some added flower buds and ferns to add pops of color and texture. The boutonnieres were handmade by the Mother of the Bride, Sheree McKee. We attached miniature Star Wars characters to them which my husband and I had been collecting from the local Brooklyn Flea. I loved the idea of showing off the towering ceiling and sky lights with the height of giant balloons. I also wanted to avoid placing numbers on the actual tables because they were pretty narrow. So, balloon table numbers it was! Numbers were (painstakingly) cut out of adhesive metallic paper, tassels were made from gold mylar party fringe and sheer ribbon, and metallic/black bakers twine was used as the main tie.

I was dead set against having traditional floral centerpieces. Instead, I wanted pieces guests could take away with them and plants that could live on. Solution: Terrariums! I hand-selected all the vessels and the miniatures that were displayed in each piece. Miniatures were purchased from various Hobby Shops online, Etsy, and Brooklyn Flea. There were about 40 different scenes in total ranging from beer drinkers relaxing on a beach, a dog riding a dinosaur, punk rockers, A BBQ party, tourists photographing gigantic dogs, footy players, kids flying kites, snow skiers, “classy” mooners, cow tippers and more. The 24 indoor terrariums were constructed by the talented folks at Sprout Home and our outdoor terrariums were constructed by family and friends days before the wedding. Our welcome/timeline sign was illustrated by a talented friend of mine – Emily Van Tassel – to match the invites I designed. My Mom initially used the giant frame to display photos at my Bridal Shower back in my home state of Michigan. She then painted it with chalkboard paint and drove it from Michigan to NYC where Emily used a variety of chalk pens to create an amazing keepsake sign for us (She rocked it!).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Pick a venue that you already find aesthetically special. This way, if you don’t end up having time finish all the decor or add some finishing touches, the place will still look amazing and no one will notice. It will take some pressure off of you during those last couple weeks. We choose our venue specifically because A) It was beautiful B) the food was awesome and C) we didn’t need to rent anything at all! So, we were lazy. Lists. Big, giant, sticky note lists. Take a lot of deep breaths and try to keep the whole thing in perspective (it’s not always easy): while this event is the most important event you’ve ever planned, to all of your guests it’s just another (awesome) wedding. The key elements are simple: the 15-ish minutes it takes for the ceremony and then celebrating the ceremony with your VIPs. Since your guests already love you a shit ton, hopefully they will have fun celebrating regardless of what you do or don’t do. Keep it to your favorite humans. It’s nice for the party to be small enough so you can actually spend some QT with everyone there. We had around 80 people and I realized we still missed chatting with a few and I feel terrible about it. Read A Practical Wedding by Meg Keene – it helped calm me down.
