Lindsay + Nick: A Fun NYC Park Wedding by Levi Stolove
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Lindsay and Nick’s early spring nuptials sum up everything we love about the surprises of personalized weddings. At first glance, the pretty pastel ceremony seems to be set in a secluded forest somewhere, but it’s actually in Upper West Side New York City! The duo married amongst family, friends, and tall trees at Fort Tryon Park, then followed up with a lively reception on the outdoor patio at the park’s New Leaf restaurant.  They splurged on excellent photography and their dream venue (smart choices in our book) and kept the rest of the wedding costs at a minimum by enlisting guests to help with everything from the desserts to the reception music. Special thanks to Levi Stolove for sharing these wonderfully airy photos with us!

Lindsay and Nick first bonded over early morning lesson planning at the school where they both worked—he taught math and she taught English. After years of dating, they married in the park right across the street from that school! “The ceremony went by very quickly, but felt sweet and personal,” remembers the bride. “We were lucky that the Linden trees [in the park] bloomed a bit early.”

Look We Love: A Vintage Bohemian Fashion Shoot by Melanie Yu
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Beauty, Bridal Fashion

Project Wedding brides are nothing if not a creative bunch. We know y’all find inspiration in all corners of the Internet, and, as much as you may love them, don’t limit yourself to wedding blogs for big day ideas. That’s OK—we look around, too! And, every so often, we’re so inspired by something slightly off the wedding path that we can’t help but share. Case in point: today’s amazing in-the-forest fashion shoot, put on by DC fashion blogger Cheralee of Miss Lyle Style and Mid-Atlantic photographer Melanie Yu. Between the floral headband, lace dress, and vintage-inspired jewelry, this is a beautifully romantic look for a demure bohemian bride. Like what you see? Scroll through for a rundown on Cheralee’s actual outfit/makeup, as well as a similar look we whipped up ourselves!

Dreamy Forest Theme Wedding by Joshua Zuckerman Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Alyssa and Alex’s wedding embraced the romanticism of the Tarrytown, NY venue and their natural style. Think woodland whimsy meets East Coast classic.  They brought the outdoors inside with rustic décor and seasonal ivory flowers. Enjoy this spread of forest- inspired beauty, captured by Joshua Zuckerman Photography.

The couple married in front of a lush floral display, designed by Diana Gould.  Both Alyssa and Alex have musical theater backgrounds (Alex does improv on the weekends), so their wedding was doused with  theatrical flair.  The tone of the day was lighthearted and sweet, and packed with laughter.

The reception reminds me of an enchanted forest in the springtime… The escort display of polished stones sat amongst soft moss while candlelight surrounded the tall, rustic centerpieces.  The couple’s dog, Bean, was featured in spirit on top of the super fun, ‘Love’-printed cake by Sweet Lisa’s.  Which I love.

Sending crazy happy wedding wishes to Alyssa and Alex and big thanks to Joshua Zuckerman for sharing…
