Sarah Pease in the Four Seasons Magazine

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Four Seasons Magazine about wedding favors and how to make them stand out. From memorable to personal, there's a suggestion here for everyone! To check out the whole article, head over to The Four Seasons Magazine.  Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.00.22 PM

A Brilliant Wedding: Abbie & Joon

Abbie & Joon were so much fun to work with because they gave us complete creative freedom! Both the bride and the groom are scientists and wanted to incorporate their passions  into their special day. They chose to hold their wedding in a library and special library lamps were brought in to further set the scene. The couple's escort cards were miniature books that included their love story - written by a former New York Times writer! Each book also contained a "library card" on which guests could write a  piece of advice for the couple to add to their "card catalogue". The couple chose to have two specialty cocktails. The groom's cocktail was served in beakers and the bride's in English-style tea cups to represent her British upbringing. At the end of the night, guests were treated to an amazing dessert display: an enormous, custom-made periodic table of elements made of macaroons! After guests signed the couple's globe guestbook, they grabbed test tubes full of chocolate to take home as a favor.

We are so honored and excited to have Abbie & Joon's wedding featured in the New York Magazine's fall wedding issue! Pick up a copy of the magazine to see the full article.

Congratulations to Abbie & Joon!

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: Heather and Chris

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!

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: 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!
