Real wedding: Amber + Alexis

AmberAlexisBKLYNBride028

Ever see those weddings where it just looks so low-key and fun that you know you’d totally get along with the couple?  Thats what this one reminded me of!   All the inspiration came from the groom’s tie, and because she’s a botanist (how cool is that?), they did all their own flowers AND gifted their guests with seeds bottles personalized for their home regions!

Modern vineyard wedding: Nina + Paul

modern wedding invitations

Now this is my kinda wedding!  A modern take on the vineyard wedding that was relaxed and full of color…not a pastel in sight!  It doesn’t hurt when your sister-in-law is the fabulous Denise Fasanello and you’re super crafty…lots of inspiration in this one so scroll down for more.

From the bride:

We wanted a fun, relaxed wedding where everyone could enjoy themselves, especially us. For decor, we wanted tons and tons of color, as we aren’t really pastel people. Luckily my sister-in-law just happens to be a flower designer. Her name is Denise Fasanello, and she is a flower genius. She knew exactly what I was talking about when I said lush and colorful, and was able to take my vague ideas and make them into gorgeous table arrangements and a bouquet to die for. We also had an incredible photographer, Sasithon Pooviriyakul, who was able to capture so many beautiful moments, and kept us relaxed and having fun the whole day.

I did a lot of crafts — it was a great way to relax and put my energy into something creative, fun and personal. I made large paper flowers, composition book name cards, a cork heart, map table numbers, and even learned how to emboss to make tags for the honey bear favors we gave everyone. My sister-in-law and my mom help me gather and/or paint all different kinds of turquoise vases for the tables.

We also decided not to hire a DJ and instead planned all the music ourselves (Paul is a musician so he was excited at the excuse to purchase the speakers and subwoofer!) It was a wonderful way to bond during the wedding planning process and it felt like we were creating a special mix tape for our guests. Also, that way we didn’t run the risk of hearing any songs we didn’t love.

It’s funny how things we didn’t plan for made the day so much better. For example, we were going to have a freestanding chuppah but it was so windy we had to have four of our friends hold it for us. It made our ceremony that much more personal and celebratory.

From the bride:

We got married at Andaz on Fifth Avenue on a beautiful spring day. Andaz is unique as it has these four distinct areas: a ceremony space with a library feel, an intimate bar, a dining room overlooking the public library and an integrated cocktail and kitchen area where guests can watch food being prepared. And it’s in the middle of Manhattan! I wore a silk dress with a feather in my hair. Sarah Brysk Cohen from Blossom and Branch made me an incredible spring flower bouquet – a bright, colorful and intricate design – as well as the arrangements on our tables: two very long tables covered in Moroccan lanterns, candles in antique gold votives and various silver and gold vases holding blue thistle, spray roses, anemones, ranunculus and other extraordinary flowers.

Real wedding: Valerie + Lukasz

This wedding was truly a great marriage of modern & vintage, pairing a stark white space with industrial details to warm it up.  Very beautiful and chic all at the same time.

This bride and groom had a very specific style that paired a modern, clean canvas with antique details like wire birdcages, edison bulbs, raw material edges, and mismatched silverware. Their industrial chic wedding at Park Studios featured dramatic curtains of bistro lights and bare bulbs, corrugated metal vases, mixed metal flatware, and airplant accents. We also helped to curate a quirky collection of curiosities that included a turn-of-the-century bicycle, salvaged ship pulleys, wire dress forms, sun-bleached antlers, and a stuffed armadillo. Yes, an armadillo.

All signage and paper goods featured hand-drawn illustrations and designs mounted on sheets of metal, which we painstakingly patina’d and sanded to get just the right degree of distress. Ceremony programs were bound using the same thin gun-metal wire used in the guests’ Save the Dates and Invitations. The bridal party and dinner table florals included hydrangeas, lavender thistles, dusty miller, juniper berries, berries, and ivory garden roses, all wrapped in metal wire to complement the paper goods.
