Lorraine & Alim: Glamour & Grace

At the close of summer, another of our lovely couples, Lorraine and Alim, tied the knot at The Fox Hollow in Woodbury, New York.  I first met the bride during an appearance of mine on The Wendy Williams Show seven years ago.  She was a producer on that show at the time, but is now Vice President of Programming for True Entertainment and Executive Producer of Bravo's hit "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."  When she became engaged and called me to help plan her wedding, I was beyond thrilled ... and the rest in history.

Lorraine and Alim are both proud New Yorkers, so much of their wedding's design stemmed from that.  We designed and executed an extravagantly beautiful affair where hues of purple and grey took center stage.  The venue's lush, outdoor garden was chosen for the ceremony, which featured a wooden pergola draped in flowing fabric and fresh flowers.  A live jazz duo provided romantic accompaniment, as the bride walked down the aisle to Chrisette Michele's Golden.  Upon entering the ballroom, more romantic details were revealed such as towering centerpieces, specialty lighting, a multi-tiered wedding cake plus an elaborately displayed Jamaican Black Cake.  Overall, it was a wedding flanked by love and the joy of family and friends.  Beautiful.

We wish Lorraine and Alim a lifetime of love and happiness and it's our pleasure to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to Boschelli Photography.

Nicole & Arnaldo: NYC Sweet

Our NYC Sweet couple, Nicole and Arnaldo, were married last month at the Chart House Restaurant in Weehawken.  I first met with this bride and groom over 2 years ago in my old studio, and we partnered closely selecting all aspects of their event from A-to-Z.  

Since many of the pivotal moments of their relationship took place in or near New York City (1st date and engagement ... just to name a couple), it became the obvious choice for a theme (hence my little nickname of NYC Sweet).  And on what was officially the last day of Spring, we successfully achieved the intimate and romantic experience our beautiful bride and groom set out to create.  

Hues of pink and purple took center stage at this affair, via specialty lighting and linens, towering lush florals, a designer aisle runner, the delectable 3-tiered cake, lounge furniture and all other pieces of stationary.  Just 25 of the couple's closest family and friends were invited, but the love exuding from the space truly rivaled events I've designed for 300+ guests for sure!  It was exquisite.

I was thrilled to have worked with Nicole and Arnaldo in creating a unforgettable celebration as they begin their new life together.  They are wonderful as individuals and incredible as husband and wife.  I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness and am happy to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to Robert Roscigno Photography.








P.S.  Also check out a few of my own snapshots, taken in between placing tables, adjusting centerpieces, bustling the bride's gown and ordering everyone around (wink):

A Walk In The Park

It’s been a while since we've shared one of our couple’s engagement photos, but once these were revealed I knew I wouldn't be able to resist.  The bride, Executive Producer of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and the groom, a successful real estate investor, are both proud "New Yorkers" so they held the photo shoot in none other than Central Park with Boschelli Photography.  They chose a gorgeous Spring day and literally took a walk through the park!

We've been working with this beautiful couple  for several months … planning, preparing and anxiously anticipating their September nuptials, taking place in Long Island.  So far it’s poignantly clear this event will be absolutely fabulous!  I’m truly excited for them both, so stay tuned.

Enjoy ...
