I had my hair and make-up trial with the fabulous Pedala sisters! I absolutely love what they did!
Scary before pic, with gorgeous after pic:
I plan on having my hair down and curly for the ceremony, with my ribbon headband and cathedral length veil.
(This isn't my veil in the pictures, just a sample veil the Pedala's had)
The ribbon will be neater the day of. We just didn't want to wrinkle or knot it too tightly. :)
After the ceremony, we're putting my hair up in a chignon to get it up off my neck for dancing. I don't want to get overheated! (again, the ribbon will be hidden more on the sides and in the back)
I had a wonderful experience working with my consultant, Dianne, at Kleinfelds. As soon as I put on this dress by Lazaro, I knew it was the one!
I love all the embroidery and beading!
I'm so happy with how our save the dates turned out! My grandmother is an artist, and offered to help us out with them. She went down to our venue and drew a sketch of the Williamsburg bridge and Manhattan skyline for us. Her sketch is amazing! I just added the text in Photoshop.
I also created a Save the Date magnet using one of our engagement photos, and ordered the magnets through magnetstreetweddings. They turned out great!
I attached the sketch to brown cardstock with glue dots, and attached the magnets to another piece of brown cardstock using photo corners. I wrote a personalized message to each guest with gold pen next to the magnets.
Here's the final result:
I really love the use of green apples in this centerpiece, and it would go great with my NYC wedding theme and mocha and champagne color scheme.
I love the submerged flowers with the candles on top. The candles would look great in our venue!
I also really like the idea of tea lights dangling off branches.
This lantern centerpiece is cute. I may use lanterns on my cocktail tables on the patio outside during the cocktail hour.
Our cocktail hour and reception will be at Giando on the Water in south Brooklyn. It is a gorgeous venue with amazing views of the East River and Manhattan skyline.
We will be getting married on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It is the same church that Jon grew up in, and the church that his parents also married in. I'm so excited we get to get married there too!
