    Modern NYC Wedding at the Rainbow Room

    Manhattan’s iconic Rainbow Room was the setting for Sara and John’s classic New York City wedding. Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple tied the knot after almost a decade of dating with sweeping views of the NYC skyline as their backdrop. Their sophisticated evening of dinner and dancing began with a ceremony underneath an intricate branch chuppah from Spina with Sara’s grandfather’s tallit atop, and ended with her grandfather’s flawless rendition of “New York, New York” performed for the reception. A chic Sylvia Weinstock cake with fresh blooms complemented the lush florals in ivory, blush, and lavender, decorating the one-of-a-kind Rainbow Room. We are head over heels for every moment of this NYC soiree captured by Brklyn View Photography and captivated by the beautiful film from McKenzie Miller Films!

    Austin Wedding at Villa Del Lago

    Laura and Sebastian grew up in two different worlds—he from England and she from Alabama—so when planning their Austin wedding, the couple had a grand time combining their backgrounds in a fun, yet classic, way! The setting of Austin’s Villa Del Lago was perfect for their “English garden” wedding with a Southern dinner party atmosphere. STEMS Floral Design created natural and lush florals with hydrangea, roses, eucalyptus, and magnolia leaves that perfectly complemented the ladies’ royal blue Amsale bridesmaids dresses and Laura’s lovely Watters gown, and created a romantic atmosphere atop the tented reception’s elegant farm tables. The celebration was a complete melding of Laura and Sebastian’s cultures, right down to the day’s menu, which featured bangers and mash alongside fried quail with buttermilk ranch dressing. We’re simply spellbound by the timeless images captured by Jenna McElroy Photography!

    Colorful Scottsdale Wedding

    Dominique and Blake’s vision for their Scottsdale wedding was pure romance, and working alongside Jennifer Ellis of White House Design Studio, their ideas transformed into reality. The couple, dating since their sophomore year of college, were joined at the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia by family and friends who had watched their love blossom over the years. A vivid color palette of berry, wine, and ivory was selected to enhance the beauty of their desert setting, and White House Design Studio created arrangements overflowing with orchid, hydrangea, and magnolia leaves to festoon the ceremony arch and adorn the luxurious reception tables. In lieu of traditional place cards, guests received hand-calligraphed notes in ivory ribbon-wrapped boxes, the notes serving as a warm thank you from the couple for joining them to celebrate their special day. As always, Melissa Jill Photography captured each moment perfectly!

    Romantic Miami Wedding

    Ask Josy about the day of her wedding to Bryan and she’ll say it was “in one word, perfect.” The couple selected Miami’s Coral Gables Country Club for their romantic and intimate celebration, and the day was filled with love and laughter, along with many personal touches. In addition to lovingly creating the petal toss cones, menus, and rolled shawl favors, Josy and Bryan penned letters to each guest, delivered at the reception, a lovely and memorable gesture that we’re sure no one will soon forget. Josy adores flowers, and worked with Avant Gardens to create elegant blush and white arrangements for the reception, set atop glimmering mirrored tables, and a showstopping flower wall that served as both a ceremony altar and sweetheart table backdrop. The result was breathtaking! From the rose petals down the aisle to the sea of candles in the reception, every moment is romantic and timeless, and beautifully captured by Elaine Palladino!
