A Brilliant Wedding: Christina & David

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!

A Brilliant Wedding: Petra & Chris

We were thrilled to plan Chris and Petra's wedding after working with Chris on his beautiful, heartfelt proposal. Not only did we work with this fabulous couple on their proposal, we also planned Petra's brother's wedding (Britten & AJ) last year. There's nothing better than the chance to work with the same family on multiple occasions, we are honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of so many special family moments! The couple was married at the lush Banyan Tree Mayakoba Hotel in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The ceremony took place under a billowing, draped canopy decorated with a crystal chandelier. After a romantic  reading from Emily Bronte's Jane Eyre the couple said their "I Do's" and the party moved to palapas on the beach for an oceanfront meal. Guests dined on fresh, Mexican-inspired food and danced the night away in the warm breeze from the Caribbean Sea. When the night ended, guests left with funny photobooth pictures and miniature bottles of tequila to keep the party going! Congratulations Petra & Chris!

We are thrilled that Petra & Chris' wedding was chosen to be featured on Carats & Cake! Check out the post here.

A Brilliant Wedding: Kimberly and Bill

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!

A Brilliant Wedding: Morgan and Bud

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!

A Brilliant Wedding: Lauren and Colin

Lauren and Colin are such a sweet couple and coordinating their wedding day was an absolute thrill.  The happy couple was married on a day in early February at the beautiful Pleasantdale Château in New Jersey.  Lauren, dressed in her gorgeous wedding gown complete with a dazzling sash, walked down the aisle to "Ave Maria".  Following their ceremony, guests headed to the reception and were seated at tables adorned with sequined table cloths and ornate and lush floral arrangements.  Family and friends watched Lauren and Colin share their first dance to "That's How Strong My Love Is" by Otis Redding and danced all night long. We are thrilled to have our couples wonderful wedding featured on Style Me Pretty! Check out the post here.  Congratulations, Lauren and Colin!
