This year was my third round of the NY Magazine Wedding Event, and it could possibly be the best one yet! More vendors, BETTER vendors, but space to walk around…all add up to a successful event. Here are some of my favorites from last night….
Yummy truffles from Taste Caterers….I loved the way they presented them.
Lots of gorgeous gowns as you walked in…
Yummy mini milkshakes from Mary Giuliani Catering….
Karen Cunningham‘s completely coordinated table! That church shot is one of my favorites.
Beautiful arrangement from the geniuses over at Takashimaya…so good to reconnect with my old middle school buddy Peter who is now their Creative Director!

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.

Last Thursday I headed uptown to the Pronovias showroom for a lovely event by Xochitl of Always a Bridesmaid. There was a mini fashion show [forgive my not-so-great shots...models move around a lot], gorgeously fragrant flowers by Fleurs, music, makeup and hair..all in one place! And SPEAKING of events, there are 2 this week….BFF Bridal and The Wedding Party! I’ll be at both so definitely check them out…more info on them in Deals + Events.

Florist: Seaport Flowers
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Amy and her team at Seaport Flowers. We met with them a few times over the year and they always understood what I was going for with our flowers. Towards the end I was losing steam with everything going on, and I left all the church decorations up to Amy, the only direction she had was color….what she came up with was beautiful and exactly what we didn’t even know we wanted. Everyone should just stop by her store for a bit of inspiration.
Flowers for rehearsal dinner: Fleurs
Jessy was amazing in taking on this task…I honestly told her to do whatever she wanted, and she came up with these beautiful arrangements of purple flowers in galvanized tins and moss….so beautiful, in fact, I brought them back to the hotel to decorate my room so I could enjoy them a little longer. With zero direction from me, she really did a stellar job.
