Jackie and Andrew’s January wedding day began with a ton of sunshine, despite the chilly temperatures. After spending the morning getting ready at the Trump SoHo Hotel, the two strolled across the street to City Winery in TriBeCa for a dazzling ceremony and reception.
Honoring both heritages, Jackie and Andrew melded a traditional Jewish ceremony with a Japanese Tea ceremony, while saying their I-Do’s under a custom Chuppah.
While guests snapped photos for the guestbook during cocktail hour, the ceremony space was converted to the reception space, filled with twinkling lights and oversized ranunculus. Our couple and their guests danced the night away to tunes from Dexter Lake Club Band – covers of the Beach Boys and the Beatles were in no short supply. Guests dined at tables that had been made glamorous by Blade Floral and Event Designs and later, enjoyed late night pizza delivery to keep their energy up on the dance floor.
Perhaps the most special moment of the night was when the newlyweds snuck away for a silent cake cutting, which kept the party rolling and allowed our couple a memorable moment for just the two of them to share.
As a final nod to Jackie’s roots, guests departed with red Chinese Takeout containers filled with fortune cookies. We loved these personal touches from the bride and groom, which made their night truly brilliant!
Congratulations to Jackie and Andrew!

Christina & David got a perfect day in June for their wedding! The bride rode in style in a vintage Rolls Royce to the church for their ceremony at St. Francis Xavier. After a heartfelt ceremony, the couple hopped back in the Rolls and headed to their reception at Cipriani 42nd Street. The bride stunned guests when she changed into a gorgeous, trendy white jumpsuit for the party. Guests dined on delicious Italian fare and partied on a dancefloor custom made for the couple. After his speech, the bride’s father sang a beautiful, not to mention impressive, song in honor of his daughter’s marriage. At the end of the night, guests left with hand-painted ceramic plates that the bride’s Italian mother commissioned just for her daughter’s special day. What a beautiful family affair!
Congratulations to Christina & David!

Heather and Chris were such a fun couple to work with and incorporated so many unique and creative ideas into their wedding. The ceremony was held on the rooftop of Skylight West featuring breathtaking views of the surrounding Manhattan skyline. The couple wanted the space to feel “happy”, so bright yellow rose petals lined the aisle and whimsical topiaries with lush bouquets of roses served as altar décor. Pashminas, serving as chair covers, could also be used by guests to keep warm during the ceremony. As self-proclaimed “foodies”, the couple wanted to draw on their love of food and fine dining to create a unique reception for their guests. Banquettes along with different sized tables were set up the make the space feel like a posh New York restaurant. The couple even had cell phone chargers set up in the reception so that guests could keep snapping pictures all night long. We were thrilled to have our couple’s beautiful wedding featured on Carats & Cake. Check out the post here. Congratulations Heather and Chris!

Kimberly and Bill’s down to earth personalities made planning their wedding so much fun. Kimberly and Bill were married in early April on the rooftop of the Bryant Park Grill overlooking the beautiful park. Following with their New York City venue, guests were treated like true New Yorkers with personalized taxi cab escort cards. You could feel the love between Kimberly and Bill as they started their night off with a first dance to “Just The Way You Are” by Billy Joel. The rest of the night was spent dancing, eating, drinking and laughing with friends and family. To finish off the night, each guest was given a freshly baked, late night pretzel as they exited the venue. Congratulations Kimberly and Bill!
Morgan and Bud had the perfect day for their beautiful October wedding in New York City. The day started at the stunning St. Ignatius Loyola church where the couple had a traditional ceremony in front of family and friends. After the ceremony the newlyweds headed to Central Park where they beamed in their first pictures as man and wife. From there the party got started at the Pierre Hotel. As guests entered the room the infectious band played “Suit and Tie” by Justin Timberlake, setting the tone for the all night celebration ahead. Guest ate, drank and danced all through the night, and Morgan and Bud couldn’t have looked more in love. Congratulations!
And now we are so excited to be planning Morgan’s sisters wedding for the fall of 2014!
Classical elegance touched every aspect of Stephanie and Joe’s wedding. The day started at St. James church where the couple had a beautiful traditional ceremony. A vintage London cab car then whisked the newly weds of to central park where they posed for the first time as husband and wife. The celebration continued at the ballroom of the Yale Club where old world charm added to the ambiance of the night. The reception was decorated with touches of silver and gold, with displays of amber, cream and coral roses on every table. Congratulations Stephanie and Joe!

It was a beautiful and traditional wedding at the NY Palace. Diane and Seb who are big traveler’s, decided to stay local and tie the knot in New York City. The couple exchanged vows during their elegant church ceremony, followed by a classic New York portrait session in Central Park. Later, the couple pulled up to their reception in a vintage car! They shared their first dance to Shania Twain’s, From this Moment, and from there on it was pure celebration. There were glow sticks for the dance floor, and flip-flops of all sizes so that guests never had to stop dancing. Diane and Seb cut into one of Ron-Ben Israel’s scrumptious cake creations, and even had a Macaron Tower cake that everyone wanted a piece of! It was a perfect day for these lovebirds! Congratulations Diane and Seb!

Susana and Craig wanted to exchange vows in an intimate ceremony amongst family and their closest friends. They said “I do” in a stunning little church, and then went off to take photos around the city. Instead of having their guests wait around for the reception to start, they were treated to a bus tour of New York City. When everyone arrived to The Standard Hotel for cocktail hour, they were greeted by panoramic views of the The High Line and the NYC skyline, as well as a Jazz trio of Julliard performers. Stepping into The High Line room for dinner, guests took their seats at one of two long banquet tables that were adorned in contemporary succulent arrangements. After a dinner filled with heartfelt speeches, guests took to dancing the night away. When it was time to say goodbye, guests received oh so fun Mast Brother Chocolate favors and they were a total hit! The evening was timeless, just like our wonderful couple! Congratulations, Susana and Craig!

October weather can be very unpredictable, however, Brooke and Scott lucked out and had their wedding on a perfect fall day. The brisk yet sunny weather complemented Brooke and Scott’s elegant and rustic wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY. Just as the sun was setting, the gorgeous bride walked down the aisle to “If It’s Magic” by Stevie Wonder played by a solo trumpet. As Brooke and Scott’s guests headed inside for the reception they were greeted by an abundance of glowing candles and other incredible glass details. Thousands of candles in unique glass vessels could be found all throughout their spectacularly beautiful reception. Guests weren’t only awed by the beautiful luminous displays, everyone raved about the delicious cake from Momofuku Milk Bar for dessert. After a day filled with love and laughter, the bride and groom’s family and friends left this truly stunning wedding with special favors – homemade sea salt caramels by Brooke herself! The couples amazing wedding was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs, if you missed it make sure to read it here! Congratulations, Brooke and Scott!

Helping coordinate Virginia and Matt’s intimate and beautiful wedding day was a treat. This adorable couple was married on a brisk day in March at The DUMBO Loft in Brooklyn. Virginia, who looked absolutely gorgeous in her lace wedding gown, walked down the aisle to “Glosoli” by Sigur Ross. From unique hanging displays to lush centerpieces, an array of unique and fabulous floral arrangements created by Fox Fodder Farm could be seen all throughout the couple’s wedding day. Following Virginia and Matt’s ceremony guests watched the couple cut their ornately decorated and delicious cake and danced the night away. Congratulations, Virginia and Matt!
