This weekend Anne and I hit the Wedding Party event at the Palace Hotel, sponsored by the Wedding Library and Elegant Bride magazine. It was a great chance to catch up with all my favorite vendors, and discover a couple of new ones at the same time. Above are some dresses from Lela Rose’s Amsale‘s new bridesmaids line.
These dresses were a sight to see! Designed by British designer Sam Walls Beasley of Samuelle [who is now located in Brooklyn!!], each dress is completely couture…she will work with you from the very beginning to design a gorgeous, custom made wedding dress that no one else will have!
Invitations above by Paper+Cup Designs…I always love seeing them in person and getting to get a real sense of all the special little details that go into each one. Below is Mr. Boddington‘s maypole of gorgeousness.

Our wedding was November 8, 2008 in Central Park and unfortunately for us, it absolutely poured that day. When we were in the cab pulling up my husband was on the phone with our photographer who said there was probably no way he could take pictures for us since everything was outside. We had a pretty nontraditional wedding by inviting only our immediate families up here to NYC and getting married in Central Park. We went to dinner in the Lower East Side that night and then met up with friends for drinks that evening. It was intimate and perfect. The only issue is that we didn’t get any pictures done professionally. A couple weeks after the wedding we thought we picked a good day to do a photo shoot so we went for it. It was 30 degrees that day! We went in Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO. I wanted to share in case these were appropriate for your readers and given your blog title, I thought I’d pass along.

These photos by Amelia Lyon just go to show that you don’t have to take your engagement photos in a pretty garden….concrete can be pretty darn sexy too.
