Lauren and Matt were married at The Bowery Hotel in the fall. Four years after the day the met. They loved rich fall colours and Poppies and Posies brought their vision to life with crimson, coral and berry tones. The floral decor had a warm autumnal feel, and complimented the exposed brick walls, vintage rugs and iron chandeliers of the boutique hotel perfectly. R Wagner Photography captured their special day with these beautiful images.
Lauren got ready at The Bowery Hotel in a bridal suite with a large terrace which offered stunning views of downtown Manhattan.
I adore these vintage stamps that they used on their invitations.
How radiant does the Bride look in her Monique Lhuillier gown? It was a little chilly that day, but Lauren donned a shrug and braved the elements to take portraits outside with Matt. I’m so glad they did make use of the remaining natural light that day. I love how the wind was playing with Lauren’s veil in this picture.
Instead of a string trio for the ceremony, they chose to do a quartet of cellos. The sound of four cellos was so rich and luxurious. Tying in again with the overall feel of their wedding day.
The escort cards were individually pinned to miniature pears. So cute!
In lieu of a wedding cake, Lauren and Matt had a dessert table with treats from Sugar Sweet Sunshine and their favourite candies. Guests were hitting it hard all night. A great way to refuel from dancing! Every time I looked around again it was time to replenish the table. Later into the night, an African drummer joined the DJ and kept the energy of the room pumping.
It was such a gorgeous fall wedding celebrating the love of two people who are a perfect match for each other. Lauren had saved the receipt from their first date, because she knew things would lead to this special day. Congratulations again to Lauren and Matt!

What a great way to start the week to see our Bowery Hotel wedding on Style Me Pretty New York! With floral and event design by Poppies and Posies and captured by R Wagner Photography, this was definitely one of my favourites from last year.

I loved meeting and working with this Bride’s Mother. She was so very kind, generous and gracious. A truly wonderful presence to have supporting and celebrating with her daughter on her wedding day. Also doesn’t she look amazing? She is wearing Carolina Herrera, just like the Bride.
This Mother’s Day brings a whole new meaning to me, as a few months ago I became a Mum. I hope that one day I will be able to celebrate with my own daughter on her wedding day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers out there!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the bouquet that Poppies and Posies had created for one of our weddings at The Bowery Hotel. Those yellow tree peonies? I had to lift my jaw back up off the ground.

The Harold Pratt House is such a special venue, and it worked out perfectly for a very special couple. In honour of Allison and Brian, we created a winter wedding that was classic, sophisticated and timeless. I was so excited to watch this film from Kiss the Bride Films, which beautifully captures the essence of the happy day forever. Another great example of why I think hiring a cinematographer is important. Thank you to Leslie and her team for sharing this highlight.

One of our Brides did not want a traditional ring pillow, so she found a beautiful alternative. A book with a hollow heart indentation to place the rings. For the book cover, she used “Elements of Style”, a classic grammar and writing book. A book that both the Bride and Groom have sitting on their shelves at work. It came with a magnetic closure to make sure the rings made it safely down the aisle with the little ring bearer.

Red Tree Creations sent me a sample of their laser cut escort cards and I really enjoyed playing with their modern and creative designs. A great option for a couple looking for something a little punchy!
