Low Key New York Winter Wedding on the Lunar New Year

Harn and Robert picked February 12th 2021 as their wedding date as both being New York transplants who came to love New York City together, they wanted to pay homage to the iconic 212 area code. It incidentally wound up being the Lunar New Year too – another great occasion to celebrate!

The inspiration behind the day was just to have a genuine, easy, stress-free celebration with their (geographically) closest friends. They are still hoping to have a bigger and more inclusive party one day when travel is safer for everyone.

Colourful October Wedding with DIY Details

A colourful embroidered gown, brightly-hued bridesmaid outfits, a tribute to passed loved ones and lots of DIY details… yep, there’s so much to love about Christine and Dominic’s wedding. Married in October 2019, the pair planned a day which combined the autumnal colours of the season with heartfelt moments they felt really personal to them.

“I walked down the aisle with both of my parents to an instrumental version of John Mayer’s Slow Dancing in a Burning Room“, began Christine. “Sounds dark, but it’s one of my favourite songs and I love this version. One of our best friends was the officiant and he shared a couple of personal stories of his and stories we shared with him about each other. Then Dom and I both shared our personal vows we wrote to one another. We felt the love for each other and from our family and friends all in that moment. It was so beautiful to experience.”

Champagne, Chinese Food & Mid-Century Modern Disco

Olivia and Max wanted something with a mid-century modern flare (including their 1972 VW bus) for their August wedding. The day featured plenty of champagne, confetti and Chinese takeaway food!

Like so many other couples, their original wedding plans were sadly cancelled. However, they decided to keep their date and get married in Oliva’s parent’s backyard surrounded by their family instead.

“For our original wedding venue (a rock ‘n’ roll themed mid-century modern hotel with a funky poolside restaurant), we were going for an Almost Famous meets Mad Men vibe”, the bride began. “We wanted the event to be super colourful, bright and fun. Even though we had to cancel our plans and move the wedding to my parents’ house, we tried to keep as many of these elements as possible.”

Retro & Rock n Roll Inspired Coney Island Wedding

Nicole and Brandon are both huge music fans so they wanted to incorporate music into as many details of their wedding as possible. From the invitations which were record and cassette tape designs, to the flowers made from sheet music and even the centrepiece which were all instruments. The favours were guitar picks, magnets, buttons and stickers and were set up like a merch table and the music that played throughout and the reception was a combination of guest requests (which they asked on the RSVP cards) and their own favourites.

The day was held on Coney Island, at Gargiulo’s Restaurant. “Coney Island is such an iconic place that many of our friends had never seen”, Nicole told us, “it was great to be able to share one of our favourite places with our favourite people. The all-Italian never-ending food was definitely unique. Our DJ was very unconventional and created a great flow from the ceremony into the Italian Goodfellas-esque cocktail hour, energetic intros, and eclectic dance party. The punk rock after party definitely surprised the guests and took the event to a different level. We got so many complementary messages from our guests about the details and unique experience.”

Married in An Elevator: A Fashion Shoot with a Twist

Have you ever seen a fashion shoot in an elevator? We certainly haven’t and although this session, which was sent to us by florist and designer Valen Ibarra of BLUMENHAUS, isn’t strictly bridal, we have a funny feeling you’re going to like it just as much as we do.

Valen told is all about it, “The whole concept came to me in a dream. In the dream I was in an elevator surrounded by flowers, I woke up at 3am messaged my friend Karina, who is a photographer, and started planning.”

“Literally three days later the dream came to life. The shoot took place in a random elevator in Denver. We hope this shoot inspires Rock n Roll brides and grooms because it takes a step out of ordinary ceremony sites and shows you can elope or wed or have flowers anywhere. It would be an especially cute idea if you and your significant other met in an elevator!”
