Held at the Mountain Springs Lake Resort in an enchanted forest, Stephanie & Andrew’s Wedding Day was an intimate and quaint affair – every bit as magical as a storybook fairy tale. This gorgeous couple exchanged vows outdoors with loving family and close friends on hand. The luscious canopy of greenery, wooded pathways, and a charming babbling brook created a serene yet mystic ambiance. Following the ceremony, celebrations continued indoors at ‘The Lodge’. The large bay windows provided lots of natural light and continued glimpses for guests of the beautiful nature that enveloped them. Rather than riding off in a fairy tale horse and carriage, the two capped the day with a memorable movie-moment and sparkling hot exit to give a sneak peek of their Happily Ever After!
It doesn’t have to be all red or all green or all gold or all silver and it doesn’t have to be over crystallized. But if it is, make sure it’s done in a stylish and chic way.
As previously stated, last week we celebrated the opening of Punto with our #VivaPuntoSpace themed event, which I just found out will be a yearly fete. The theme was set but we were unsure what to do about decor, so we kept it cute and simple. Marc Wilson of MWD Lifestyles provided us with customized modern white, black and silver furniture pieces accented with beautiful festive flowers and subtle perimeter up-lighting. Beautiful snowflake gobos accented our walls with the Punto logo front and center, thanks to our friends at KM Productions (check out images of #VivaPuntoSpace here and fun Photo Booth images here). The event was a huge hit and success!
So your invitations are out and the venue is booked. You’ve been shopping for your dress and tux, and now you’re interviewing event designers and florists. The beauty of this part of the process is that you get to choose the one company that will truly make you shine and look like a million bucks. That is why it is imperative you make the right choice.
Before interviewing designers, be sure to stalk their website, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and any other social media outlet. Get a sense of their style and see if it correlates with yours. Also, be sure to create a binder with clippings or Pinterest board with your inspirations and likes. Or, you can simply show up with nothing and have your fab designer come up with a design from scratch which I actually strongly recommend!
You have to make sure that your event stays true to who you are. Your wedding should be a reflection of both your styles as it is a symbol of bringing two people together. Make sure your designer doesn’t overdo it by using too much of one element throughout the event and if they do, they should be able to find creative ways to do so. Marc Wilson of Weddings by MWD Lifestyles explains: “We try to steer our clients away from using too much of one element. For example, if they feel drawn to earth elements such as rocks and crystals, we may suggest using cut crystal vases, votives and natural accents instead, which gives a sophisticated yet subtle version of their vision. We use different variations and textures of the choice event colors in order to showcase a well-rounded wedding. Using too much of the same tone in one color can be overkill.”
Your wedding design is just as important as your dress. Be wise when choosing, and remember to keep it cute and simple.
You’ve had a sneak peek of this duo’s Wedding Day already and, as you know, it was just stunning! Now let’s take a step inside Rhea & Daryl’s Wedding Highlight. From the heartfelt Wedding card exchange between Bride & Groom to a crowd pleasing speech given by the Best Man, watch R&D celebrate their union as husband & wife with closest family and friends!
Rhea & Daryl’s Wedding Day was an absolutely stunning and classic affair. It started with a traditional Filipino Ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Queens Village. This gorgeous couple chose wedding arrhae to signify their promise to marry. They incorporated the placing of the veil & cord to speak to their coming together – bound for life as one under God’s protection. As they started their new life as a married couple, the duo released two majestic white doves into the sky. For Rhea and Daryl, the day was a dream come true further made memorable by the shiny white antique cadillac, and the Flower girls in snowball puffs of delicate white lace and tulle dancing around the room. A gold tent-like canopy enveloped the evening’s celebration at a breathtaking waterfront setting perfect for Wedding shots. Scroll below!
Melinda & Razvy are a super sweet fun loving pair oozing with a genuine love for one another. This fantastic duo never stop smiling and giggling together, and Olli Studio had the opportunity to capture it all on camera just a few short weeks ago. Shot in the Meatpacking District and along The High Line, M&R’s outdoor Engagement Session included a colorful stroll to take in the fall foliage, enjoy the crisp fresh air, and checkout the surrounding city sights. A brick background of positive chalk notes combined with city spice and their endless funny faces made for an amazing end result. Check it out!
