Real wedding: Amy + Scott





Amy contacted me last week with some really fun images from her wedding, and was kind enough to describe a lot of details as to what went on with the planning. I’ll let her do the talking! [tomorrow I’ll focus on her invitation suite…its pretty extensive!]
I am a floral and interior stylist. I do mostly home and event styling and styling for photo shoots. I am also an artist and designed our entire wardrobe of wedding stationary. The wedding was held at the St. Regis Hotel in Midtown. The venue called for Old New York style – our personality as a couple was far less stodgy. As a result I wanted to convey in the invitations be a party full of joy and celebration.
What is better than a burst of color and the joy of a wedding celebration to bring up spirits in the darkest gray stretch of winter?
The Guests:
Our guests were from all over the world, my husband works for a London based firm and a majority came in from Detroit, Michigan and Knoxville, Tennessee. We had a destination wedding of sorts as almost all of our guests came in from different places. I started the wedding suite with an invitation to NYC with Lady Liberty on it.
Inspiration and Decoration:
Inspired by the first signs of spring my inspiration started with bright yellow flowers of the forsythia branch. Orange and all shades into red became accent colors. Hurricane containers lined the aisle and a floral arch of forsythia was at the alter. The tables were all named after places Scott and I had traveled to in the time we were dating. Our sweetheart table was named Antigua after where we got engaged. The glass containers had sliced oranges lemons kumquats and cran-apples floating in them.
Another cool thing we did was frame a photo of our parents, grandparents and siblings on their wedding day. We displayed them near the entrance of the cocktail party. We also took Polaroid photos of our guests as they came in to the party. We had them sign in on individual sheets with their well wishes. Now we have a beautiful fabric box full of their kind words (that looks great on the cocktail table) as a memento!
Vendors:
I wore Monique Lhuillier, and Red Jimmy Choo shoes. The Cake was Sylvia Weinstock, the band was Hank Lane Orchestra (heavily laden with Motown sounds for my Detroit guests!), video by Milk and Honey, photos by Brian Dorsey Studios, and Magician J.B. Benn for entertainment. Cory Davenport did the floral work for me – I could not face doing it myself… way too stressful!
I did the design on all the paper goods sent throughout the engagement and wedding … the accolades came rolling in on our suite of wedding stationary. I am working on a new part of my design business called papercupp. (homage to my maiden name of Cupp) I hope to help other brides set the tone for their wedding day celebration with bespoke stationary.

Real wedding: Randi + Jacob



Of course this wedding rocks: Randi is associate style editor at MS Weddings! Do we expect anything less? What I really loved about this wedding was the simplicity in the decor…white round balloons, bowls of moss, and red bakers twine. Thats about it! How simple, how chic, and you can bet how affordable!
