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.”

Day One: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part One}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Whew!  Pardon the radio silence. It’s been a jam-packed weekend of bridal runway in New York; hopefully you’ve been catching the live-from-the-runway instagrams that we’ve posted on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re into the final day of market, running around the city seeing about a dozen more designers, but there are so many fab highlights to share!  Without further ado, here’s our top ten from day one.

no. 1 Corseted Elements by Vera Wang

In an all-ivory presentation of her signature gowns, Vera styled the newest collection with corset elements, dreamy laces and luxe embroidery that appeal equally to the classic bride, the true romantic, and the fashionista.

no. 2 Dennis Basso’s Couture Drama

Va va voom! I’m loving these drama-infused silhouettes by Dennis Basso.  A couture collection with wow factor always has a place in the highlights!

no. 3 Monique’s Feminine Romance: Bridesmaid Style

Seeing the feminine romance that is Monique Lhuillier in bridesmaid form was a total treat.  The center gown is one of my favorites from the weekend;  the fitted bodice is accented by a dropped waist and graceful tiered skirt- all in that very wearable shirred tulle.

no. 4 A Metallic Finale at Theia

Inspired by the Goddess,  designer Don O’Neill culminated his Fall 2013 runway presentation with a completely unique, rose gold and metallic ballgown silhouette.

no. 5 Lovely Temperley Laces

The always distinctive collection by Temperley London took a more classic, romantic turn this season with lots of lace, feminine shapes, and unforgettable elements of Temperley decadence.

Tribeca Rooftop Wedding By Joshua Zuckerman Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Shera and Daniel married in true New York fashion; it was a day filled with skyline views and formal elegance, and we couldn’t be more in love with every ounce of perfect pink, the rooftop setting, and the couple’s sentimental tribute to the city.   Guests watched the sky turn from sunset orange, to deep blue twilight as the couple took their vows. There’s one gorgeous photo after another in their incredible album by Joshua Zuckerman Photography.  Enjoy every last one.. I sure am!

The couple married in a traditional Jewish ceremony, under a lavish floral chuppah on the Tribeca Rooftop.  Rows and rows of gold chiavari chairs accommodated a guest list of three hundred!   With the sun setting over the Hudson River, and the sweetest feelings of love and commitment sweeping the rooftop, Shera describes the ceremony as pure magic.

Following the sunset ceremony, guests were escorted to the utterly enchanting reception space which featured gold hues, crystal chandeliers, and a skylight ceiling.  Ravishing centerpieces by Andrew Pascoe Flowers Ltd took center stage against the exposed brick of the venue.  Candlelight was absolutely everywhere, creating an ambiance of evening romance.

Of course, there was only one way to end the day, and that was with a show-stopper of a cake by Tribeca Rooftop.  The couple seamlessly wove a taste of modern with classic NYC, and there’s much more to see in the full gallery of photos.

Congratulations Shera & Daniel!
