This week just keeps getting better and better! Marie & Brian’s Harmonie Club wedding is featured on The Black Tie Bride, one of my favorite new wedding blogs from the amazing Justin and Mary, this afternoon. Check out the full feature over on Black Tie Bride… and to see the full Brooklyn to Manhattan wedding, click here! Happy Thursday!
I could not be more thrilled and honored to be featured this morning on one of my all time favorite wedding blogs – Green Wedding Shoes. During my trip to Hawaii for Stacy and Mike’s Maui wedding, I collaborated with Stacie Shea Events to design a New York City meets Maui watercolor inspiration shoot at the Cliff House – an intimate new venue on the west coast of the island. Thanks to all the amazing vendors who contributed to this shoot!

Since Haley and Tom’s Brooklyn Bridge Park proposal in June, they’ve been busy making wedding plans! Amy & Jordan are going to be photographing their Arizona wedding next fall so I can fully enjoy my maid-of-honor duties, but I snuck them out around the city for a mini-engagement shoot before their official session with Amy & Jordan later this fall. We wandered their upper west side neighborhood around Central Park and finished up at the Flatiron building near Madison Square Park downtown near Haley’s office… and my old neighborhood… I love this part of the city!
After a quick outfit change… we headed south on 5th Avenue toward the iconic Flatiron building, New York City’s first skyscraper. We just caught the end of the sun reflecting off the building before it set.
Can’t wait for the wedding!
Last Monday marked the conclusion of fall Bridal Fashion Week in New York City but not before some gorgeous gowns hit the runway showcasing the season’s latest trends. Even though the runway can be filled with dramatic and over the top looks (maybe a little too much for a real wedding day), here are my favorites from fashion week that have just enough drama and elegance for a beautiful real wedding day!
So many designers had dramatic open backs this season. Here’s one of my favorites from Ines Di Santo. (Open back pictures above)
Fall in New York is definitely one of my favorite parts about living in the northeast… the leaves are turning colors, the air is crisp… it’s kind of a magical time of year out here. In order to fully soak in all that fall has to offer… Dave and I took Cam up to the Wilkens Farm in Yorktown Heights this week to pick out our Halloween pumpkins. Going on a weekday definitely avoided the massive crowds that flood the farm on Saturday and Sunday so Cam was free to run through the rows of pumpkins. He was pretty cute… I can’t help sharing a few of my favorites from the pumpkin patch… aaah to be 2 years old again… ha ha!
I like this one mommy… it weighs more than me!
He had a blast running the little pumpkins into our wagon…
