Take us back to this wedding and this couple! Working with E + L on all of the small details for their big day was such a dream. Their August wedding in the Catskills was full of love and laughter.
E + L invited their guests to join them the day before the wedding at their favorite swimming hole, which helped set the tone for the warm and authentic celebration that followed.
The wedding ceremony took place on their neighbor's property, which is where L popped the question. The party continued across the country road at the couple's cabin.

Bridal Shower // New York, New York
Pair a mani + pedi with mimosas and your best gal pals and you've got yourself one helluva bridal shower. The bride's sister wanted to create a laid-back California-vibe in the middle of New York City, so we dressed up Tenoverten SoHo's dreamy patio with palm print pillows, proteas, and shibori-dyed cocktail napkins. The result had us all California dreamin'!
B + K wanted to bring friends and family together for a full weekend celebration in the bride’s hometown of Palm Springs, California.
The night before the wedding, B + K hosted a welcome party for all of their guests at Sparrows Lodge. The casual taco buffet, sangrias, falsa blankets, campfire and bistro lights created a warm and inviting environment for the bride and groom’s family and friends.
The ceremony and reception took place at The O’Donnell House, a 1920’s hacienda perched above the Palm Springs Art Museum. Prior to the cliffside, garden ceremony guests enjoyed Champagne. After the intimate nuptials, cocktails, dinner and dancing took place on the property’s terrace, with views of the desert below.
The weekend culminated in a farewell brunch at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club.

Wedding // St. Michael's, Maryland
R + M’s romantic garden wedding took place in St. Michael’s, Maryland at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a Belmond property.
This dynamic duo was such a blast work with. Their first dance song—Uptown Girl by Billy Joel—captured their opposites-attract love story. The groom wanted lawn games and cocktails readily available, while the bride wanted guests to feel like they were attending a sophisticated Parisian dinner party with candlelight to spare.
We balanced laid back and black tie by planning a casual crab feast welcome dinner for the groom and an elegant, black and white wedding for the bride. The crab shack dinner was all mallets and paper table coverings, while the garden wedding was punctuated by touches of black ribbon and arrangements of white florals. A field of candles enveloped the Sperry Sailcloth tent, and tight arrangements of cream roses adorned the round dining tables.

Wedding // Brooklyn, New York
During our first phone call C + A outlined their priority for the wedding— a meaningful celebration of not only the two of them, but their friends and family. The Greenpoint Loft was the perfect backdrop for C + A’s heartfelt nuptials.
A family-style Italian dinner, overhead greenery, romantic candlelight and bottles of wine lining the long dining tables made the large, industrial loft feel intimate and festive.
After the final toast, guests stormed the dance floor for one of the most energetic dance parties we’ve ever seen, including the bride’s choreographed dance to Robyn’s, Call your Girlfriend. After the reception, C + A led guests to Romona, a vibrant, upscale watering hole for a night cap.
This lucky lady's thoughtful husband wanted to throw her an intimate cocktail party to celebrate her 30th birthday. Despite the frigid temps and snow-packed sidewalks, the mood inside this cozy venue was nothin' but warm.
The creative menu of Spanish small plates and specialty cocktails paired perfectly with the papel picado hanging overhead and the vibrant floral arrangements scattered around the room.
Italy was the only destination M + R envisioned for their wedding day. With the groom’s family hailing from Florence, friends and family were invited to Greve in Chianti, Italy for a Tuscan celebration.
M + R kicked off the festivities with a casual wine tasting welcome. The rustic tasting room of Castello Di Uzzano provided an intimate setting for guests to mingle while sampling locally produced wines selected by the groom.
Situated among the vineyards, the ceremony and reception took place at Frattoria di Prenzano. Once a hunting lodge for the Medici family, guests sipped Aperol Spritzes while overlooking the Tuscan countryside.
Music played a prominent role throughout the evening with Anthony Strong providing romantic jazz vocals during the ceremony. The London Essentials kept guests on their feet from cocktail hour through dinner and local Italian band Quei Bravi Ragazzi played as guests danced under the stars.

Wedding // New York, New York
We love when couples buck tradition. A + P ditched the bridal party and first dance, opting instead for a classic night out in New York City. Augustine, a buzzy French brasserie located in the renovated historical Beekman Hotel, provided the perfect setting.
After the ceremony at Saint Joseph’s in the West Village, the bride traded her stylish veil for an ivory leather jacket to take photos with her tuxedo-clad groom, while the guests were transported downtown to start the party.
A + P let us know from the outset that the evening’s menu was really important to them. During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed oysters, a plethora of amazing hors d’oeuvres, and tray-passed bubbly and Coors Light, specifically requested for the bride’s father and brothers. Next, guests were treated to a three-course dinner, followed by some late-night bites to end the evening.
A + P were equally thoughtful when it came to the smaller details. The paper products—designed by the bride’s mother—were modern and sophisticated, the groom’s curated playlist provided the perfect soundtrack for the evening, and each individual slice of cake featured a miniature butterfly.
