Abbie and Jason were married at Housing Works Bookstore in New York, N.Y. on May 16. The bride looked fabulous in a lace gown with capped sleeves and a keyhole back. She wore her hair down and wavy, accessorizing with a birdcage veil and drop earrings. She carried a sweet bouquet of peonies, roses, and stock. The groom looked dapper in a fitted gray suit with a silver neck tie. In lieu of a dinner after they exchanged vows, the couple held a cocktail-style reception so that guests could mingle and not feel confined to one table. “We really wanted to do something different and unique, and not traditional,” Abbie said. Their vintage welcome table featured a birdcage where guests could drop off notes, an antique typewriter, a set of tiny wooden drawers, and white flowers. Guests danced to live music, enjoyed a mac ‘n cheese bar, as well as a cotton candy machine. “I thought our wedding was special and something that everyone will remember because we had a lot of fun surprises and unique details,” Abbie explained. Guests also participated in a fun photo booth and indulged in a four tier cake and mini rose cakes. Abbie surprised Jason with a waffle food truck for the end of the evening and guests received books that were chosen by the couple. “We didn’t conform to a traditional wedding, so it was a really unique and fun party that broke the norms,” Abbie said.

Paul and Joe were married at their private residence in East Hampton, New York on September 13. One groom looked dapper in a black fitted suit and light purple tie, while the other looked just as handsome in a gray checkered suit and dark blue tie. The 65 guests in attendance sat in brown chiavari chairs with navy blue padding and burlap ribbon . “We really love our home in East Hampton and have put a lot of love and effort into the landscaping,” Paul explained. The ceremony was performed by their yoga instructor and both grooms read personal vows, which prompted a few tears from guests. A trio from the Julliard School of Music played as well. After they officially tied the knot, they hosted the reception right in their backyard! Guests sat at three different rectangular banquet tables covered in navy blue denim linens and featured hurricane lanterns and floral arrangements as centerpieces. The nearby pool had white mums floating in it, and candles around the perimeter. “Our backyard was a beautiful setting to celebrate our special event,” Paul said. After the filling family-style dinner, guests were treated to a three tier cake topped with two Adirondack chairs and other beachy elements. Tartlets and cookies were also available. Their best advice for couples on their wedding day? “Be in the moment and make sure to take time to enjoy the event privately as a couple,” he said. “Occasionally step away from the guests so you can savor and remember the incredibly special occasion.” See the full board here.

Noelle and Richard were married at Artisan Works in Rochester, NY on June 7. The bride looked stunning in a V-neck chiffon gown with a sparkly bodice and wore her hair in soft curls. She carried a bouquet featuring red peonies, pink roses, poppy pods, scabiosa pods, and fern curls. Her ‘maids opted for navy blue wrap dresses and carried colorful blooms. The groom and he men wore black two-piece tuxes with skinny ties. The couple let the decorative venue speak for itself. “Every inch of the venue is covered in colorful artwork, so any attempt at a color scheme or theme would be white noise,” Noelle explained. “We wanted something lively and non-traditional.” The pair exchanged vows in front of their 114 guests in the art space. The guests received an “instruction manual” as a ceremony program, one of the ways the the couple incorporated their sense of humor into the ceremony. A reception followed, which featured tables with black tablecloths decorated with bold and textured floral centerpieces. Another unique aspect to Noelle and Richard’s wedding was that they brought their own alcohol. “Since our hobbies of beer and wine making play such significant roles in our lives, it was essential to our plans that we be able to serve them to our friends and family,” Noelle explained. After dinner guests indulged in a two-toned cake topped with flowers. The pair couldn’t have been happier with the way their day turned out. “We were brimming with love and elation that so many people who are so special to us came so far,” Noelle said.

Corinna and Zack were married at Oak Hill in Hudson, N.Y. on August 24. The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with a ruffled floral petal skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie and Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short blush dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. Their gifts? Burlap clutches. Guests were directed to the ceremony, reception, and yes, restrooms with a wooden sign post and were encouraged to take a fan to beat the hot, hot heat. The ceremony took place along the river with an expansive view of the Catskill Mountains in the background. Cocktail hour began with “Moose Juice,” fresh pineapple soaked in vodka, and “Jungle Juice,” fruit punch, lemon-lime fizz, and raspberry vodka, and lawn games such as corn hole. The reception was held inside the barn lit with string lights and draped with fabric. Tables were decorated with burlap runners, mason jar and wine bottle centerpieces atop wooden slices, and utensils wrapped in twine. Family style dinner included grilled steak, salmon, bbq chicken, pulled pork, mac ‘n’ cheese, and fresh vegetables. Yum! Plus, a strawberry shortcake for dessert. Just wait until you see the newlyweds’ send-off! Z + C = pure bliss. See the full board here.
