Last week I had a chance to visit the new Crosby Street Hotel in Soho, and was lucky enough to take a little tour of the place. Its really one of the most fashionable hotels I’ve ever stepped in, and know it will be a great new venue for small weddings, rehearsal dinners or bridal showers. There are a few private areas downstairs for small parties, a GORGEOUS outdoor space, opportunities for Afternoon Tea, and just coolness abounding everywhere! It worth noting that every single room in this 86 room hotel is designed differently. I would have loved to have stayed here the night of my wedding!

A little early, but enjoy the SPOOOOKY weekend! I’m curious, if YOU were getting married this weekend, would you go all out with a Halloween theme?

When Stacey Ilyse sent me this wedding a few weeks ago, I totally feel in love with Lauren’s dress and the low-key feeling surrounding the day…I’ll let Stacey tell you the rest.
They are both very low key, quiet people who really just wanted an evening of spending time with their closest family and friends. There was no bridal party, Lauren got ready at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, and had her sister, 2 of her closest girlfriends “the unofficial bridesmaids” with her, one of whom did her makeup, and her long time hair stylist spend the morning with her getting ready.
The car service that was hired for the day never made it to the hotel, so we just all jumped in a cab and made our way uptown for the ceremony… following the ceremony Lauren and Darryl loved the idea of the NYC cab, so we took one back downtown to Tribeca, to The Harrison, where they had approx 70 guests, for a lovely night of eating amazing food and dancing.
The best part about having their reception downtown was getting to take advantage of the amazing Tribeca hardscape, with all the cobblestone, and graffiti alleys we found.
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Dress: Amsale – very cool dress that turned into a short cocktail looking dress as well just by taking apart the skirt.
Make up: best friend
Getting ready: Tribeca Grand Hotel
Photographer: Stacey Ilyse Photography

Flowers: simple bouquet of peonies as well as 1 peony for her hair as well. And on the tables.
Fun and colorful, just the way an engagement shoot should be!
