A Gorgeous Garden Cremony

Tell us your love story!

We met through friends, but the sparks didn't fly right away. In fact, we hardly said a word to each other during our first meeting, because we were both distracted by others. It didn't even happen when we kissed the first time, several months after our first meeting. Sparks finally flew when Staci texted Kristin after waiting TWO WHOLE DAYS after she planted the kiss on her!  Once we started talking and getting to know each other, the attraction grew like wildfire. We both loved to laugh, and Staci was starting to realize Kristin just might be witty enough to keep up with her! Kristin knew pretty early on that Staci was the one, so naturally she started running around like a lovesick teenager talking to anyone who would listen about her budding relationship. Staci was playing it cool but she knew what she wanted, and that was Kristin. So, one night Staci asked Kristin if she wanted to give this thing a real shot, by removing any distractions and just focusing on growing their new relationship, which already seemed to have endless potential. Kristin was beside herself with excitement that Staci only wanted her, and said YES without hesitation!

From then on, it was an easy transition into falling madly in love; with lots of laughs, adventures and a mutual respect for what we had found in each other.

Kristin became Staci's Lily, and Staci became Kristin's Forever.

What about the proposal?

We were having a birthday party for Kristin as well as a house warming party to celebrate moving into our new place so we were surrounded by friends and family. As everyone gathered to sing Happy Birthday to Kristin there was a huge surprise waiting for her, written on the cake was “Kristin, Will you marry me?” Kristin was so oblivious that she did not even look at the cake until the birthday song was nearly over. Staci had to come over to Kristin and point it out, immediately she started crying and said yes, of course. Staci banked on Kristin saying yes because she had a sign immediately revealed as well as a champagne toast in personalized glasses that said "She said yes!” and the date on them.

When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?

Pretty immediately. We decided early on that our budding relationship was worth eliminating any distractions of other people. We wanted to focus on growing the strong connection we developed. We had both grown up with loving friends and family who we hold in very high regard, that helped us to bond very early in the relationship.

Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?

From the beginning of the planning stages we knew we wanted our special day to be not only about our love, but all of the people in our lives that helped to get us to the point where we were ready to receive the forever kind of love. We wanted our wedding to be heartfelt and thoughtful. We also enjoy a good party as do a majority of our guests, so we threw in a few fun surprises as well as signature cocktails to get the party started. We wanted to decorate with textures rather than color because the outside venue was already so naturally lush. We outfitted the venue with lots of creams, textures, succulents and pops of gold (Kristin’s personal favorite touch).

What surprised you during planning?

The surprising part of planning is how much is involved in it, even when you think you have a grip on what needs to be done, more things arise. The easy part was being completely confident in who I was marrying, all the other things become minimal compared to that. I think an ease comes with that fact, which makes the planning all go a little more smoothly. The difficult part is deciding when to say no, there are so many extra touches you can add to make the day unique and special but it is so easy to overdo it.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?

The whole day goes by so fast, enjoy the planning process. We had a fabulous wedding coordinator, Chanda of A Monique Affair. We were pretty organized through the process but hiring her earlier on might have relieved some stress.

Any advice for couples planning weddings now?

My advice is to not only stay present the day of the wedding but during the planning process. Having a videographer is so important, the day goes by so fast and there are a lot of moments you will miss.

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

Everything!! I feel like all the special touches went off perfectly and were well received. I think everyone who came noticed the effort we put into it and really appreciated it. Everyone who attended felt the love and had an amazing time.

House Of Ollichon

Laird #2

Welcome to part 2 of our style session with the Laird Jumpsuit, a piece that we'll be dreaming about for years to come! House of Ollichon knows how to make us swoon. Hard.

We wanted a slightly more masculine look for this style board, so we chose a beautiful burgundy velvet blazer by Emilio Pucci, for a winter-ready look. Because the blazer is such a strong addition to the outfit, we opted for delicate earrings, by Catbird, a sleek leather clutch by Cuyana & simple, but elegant suede pumps by Vince. 

We needed one more accessory and didn't want to weigh down the look with a watch, so we picked a pocket watch as a piece of interest. It's classic, traditionally masculine & it works perfectly with the garb!

Tell us your love story!

We met several years ago when we were in our 20's through Colleen’s sister Beth and my sister-in-law, Tara. Colleen was always involved and it wasn’t our time. We reconnected when we were 30, post Colleen’s breakup of several years. I knew that we would be together forever. Colleen wanted a wing man, but what she got was my heart.

Tell us about the proposal!

Mary popped the question on the street after a delicious meal at ABC Kitchen one December night. Then we stayed at the NOMAD hotel and met our family the next day.

When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?

A few dates in, it felt more serious and we both felt differently. We knew there was no turning back.

Tell us about your big day…

We married on 11/1/2013 at the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Perfect day, perfect ceremony officiated by Kimberly Kirkley.

Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?

We knew that we did not want it to be traditional, that we wanted to write our own vows and that we wanted to get married in Brooklyn (Mary is from Brooklyn).

What surprised you during planning?

Picking the venue and band was easy. The Liberty Warehouse captured everything we wanted for our wedding day. Trying to manage the guest list to be small and intimate was the biggest challenge.

Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?

To keep it simple and go with your gut feeling.

Any advice for couples planning weddings now?

We wish we would have kept the guest list smaller. We loved having a band and would recommend it to everyone.

Anything thing else you would like to add?

Stick to your convictions and don’t let others influence any decisions, it is your day.

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

Walking down the aisle to meet Colleen and dancing to I Want To Dance With Somebody.

Big Sur Soirée

From the moment we laid eyes on Jocelyn & Caroline's engagement session, we were in love. Because, honestly, how stunning are these ladies? Their style is sheer perfection & we can't get enough. Full disclosure...we may look at these wedding photos weekly. *Sigh* 

Their unbelievably beautiful backdrop, Big Sur, made this intimate ceremony unforgettable! Pro tip - if you chose a gorgeous location for your nuptials, little decor is required.

Enjoy drooling over these babes!

From The Photographers...

Jocelyn & Caroline are two of the most genuine, life-loving ladies I have ever known. I met them when they hired me to shoot their engagement session at their house in San Diego, to capture their life as it was as a couple before getting married. There's something about being in someone's personal, curated space that makes you feel you know them. And perhaps them seeing me understanding and appreciating their world earned some familiarity and trust too. They share property with Jocelyn's Mom and their dear friend Jenny. They call it a compound. The four of them made up half of the wedding party (total = 9). The entire party included brothers of Caroline (1) and Jocelyn (2) , a Mom and Dad for each of them, and two close friends (including compound-mate Jenny).   

They rented out a few cabins at Deetjen's in Big Sur and spent the weekend hiking, playing music together and talking late into the night before the wedding. It was a close-knit group full of love. They all pitched in with the decor and arranging the ceremony space in the river bed below the Creek House. During the ceremony, I think everyone cried at least once. Jocelyn reached over to help Caroline wipe away her tears. They laughed and cried throughout. And then there were some of the strongest most sincere hugs all around.   

After that they had dinner in the private room at Deetjen’s restaurant and a dance party in the creek house. It was a fantastic, super fun, good time for all of us. I am so grateful to have been a part of it.

From Caroline...

Jocelyn and I aren't wedding people. Hell, before we met, we weren't even marriage people! So when we made the decision to get married and have a ceremony, we knew we wanted to do things in a way that reflect our values. This included staying on a (relatively) limited budget, maintaining an intimate guest list, DIYing most of our projects, utilizing natural beauty as our backdrop, and keeping my delicate, anxious little heart from exploding.  

Our two budget splurges were hiring Michelle of Rad + In Love Photography and putting our guests up in the ridiculously gorgeous Deetjen's Inn in Big Sur. Great photos and the ultimate California setting were more than worth the cash. Other than that, we kept the wardrobe budget modest and utilized the talents of our nine guests to round out the weekend. My mom crafted the most stunning succulent bouquets from cuttings in her garden (which now live in backyard pots!), sweet guitar tunes and videography were handled by our pack of gorgeous little brothers, our close friend Cary got officiated to marry us, and our compound-mate and best friend Jenny handled all the little details, part maid of honor, part best man, part bad-ass, just "Our Best". Our parents provided their unending love, resourcefulness, and financial support. This was a group project, indeed.  

After the ceremony we ate a fabulous dinner on-site, toasted, and got toasty. The evening then devolved into elated, drunken, hilarious, free-wheelin' dancing and revelry in the living room of the family cabin. I've never felt so much love in my life. I remember every moment of my wedding weekend. The way we celebrated felt true to our values and like a celebration of our community and family, not just of mine and Jocelyn's partnership. Our families are already asking for a reunion party, and damn it, they will get it!

A Montreal Marriage

Nothing makes our hearts sing quite like a wedding filled with tartan, so you can imagine our delight when Alison Slattery Photography sent us T & E's gorgeous Montreal ceremony.  

From the photographer...

Tyrone and Evan were so fun and easygoing on their day that they made it all look a bit too easy. Our day started at Hotel 10 where we were met with their family and friends from all over.

It was a day of 10's. May 10 at 10.45am at Hotel 10 situated on Rue Sherbrooke in Montreal, the sun beaming through the big windows the bedroom offered. We snapped as the boys got ready amongst the crowded room full of giggles and laughter. Tyrone and his best man Chris had a band of brides mates all wearing white except the maids of honour in navy while Evan had a band of grooms maids all dapper in their suits and tartan bow ties.  

On our way to Old port for portraits, I heard Evan giggle with his best man Chad about the fact they were driving to their own wedding. Knowing it was a weekend, and busy, we still managed to work our way through the crowds, beat the wind and still come out on top and better yet, stay on schedule. After all the combinations of photos, excitement and fun started to set in. The boys arrived back with cans of beer and got the party started, while looking over the cirque du soleil tent.  

Back at Hotel 10, the guests began to arrive and the day did not disappoint. The sun stayed alive in the sky while we watched Erika Jahn, Tyrone's close friend, officiate their wedding. It was super emotional for all and it must have felt so amazing to have your friend marry you. This year, it has been so fun going to weddings and watching friends and family marry their own. It is so intimate. Everyone looked amazing and I am so happy that we were part of their day. I have always wanted to photograph men in kilts and well lets just say, that there was no shortage at this wedding. One of my favourite moments was watching Tyrone and Evan walk under a tunnel of swords after their beautiful kiss. It was just so vibrant and so colourful.   

The reception took place at The Blackwatch Royal Regiment of Canada on Bleury. The guys were bagpiped into the room to meet and greet all their guests. The party started with the opening of an oyster bar and plenty of finger food for all to enjoy. Everyone danced to their amazing Irish band called Squid Jigger. I was really excited about this one, because they played some of my most favourite songs. Their D.J Steve Lacroix, was also amazing, playing 90's tunes all night long. It was one epic party and I am so happy for these two. They looked so happy together and danced the night away as we left. I hope you guys have a lifetime full of happiness. You are an amazing couple and I can't wait to see the honeymoon photos later this year.

Downtown Vows

Remember these two from their stunning engagement session? They decided to plan a timeless New York City wedding and we adore the finished product! There is something so traditionally New York about brownstones downtown, with the city lights shining all around. Nick & Daniel planned an intimate, but beautiful ceremony that paid tribute to Daniel's late mother. It was personal, sweet and made everyone feel the love. Plus, can we talk about that cake? The charming décor of their venue lent itself perfectly to the couple's ceremony!

From Nick...

Daniel and I met on-line eight years ago and spent several months talking by phone and texting before deciding to meet face-to-face. When we met, there were sparks, and we were both so excited to continue getting to know one another. We learned that we lived about about 10 blocks away from each other and that we are both only children, very connected to family, and both looking for the "one" to build a life with. We quickly realized that that there was much that we could teach and learn from each other, and that we complimented one another in so many ways. As our bond grew stronger over the years and it became increasingly clear that taking our relationship to the next level was a logical step for us. Once we starting talking about marriage, we always knew that our wedding would be small and intimate. While we live in a time, where for some, a big wedding is of major importance, we did not want our wedding to be over-the-top and something that felt or looked like a "production." For us, simple, modern and elegant was the goal, with a focus on our family and friends.

We kept the guest list to 65 of our closest friends and family and in doing so, we were able to spend time with all of our guests, many of which came from far distances, and some visiting NYC for the very first time! By keeping the wedding small, we were able to go all out by giving our guests an array of delicious passed food options, unlimited drinks, beautifully designed flowers to compliment the superbly designed venue, music chosen by us, and a distinctive handmade marshmallow favor at the end of the evening. When planning our wedding, attention to detail was important to us and each decision was made keeping our guests in mind. The venue was the first decision we made, and from the moment we walked into Bobo for a meeting with the Events Manager, we were immediately taken in by it's charm, alluring ambiance, and unique character. The historic townhouse with outdoor garden space was the perfect mix of classic and modern. Bobo's eclectic interior was appealing to us and felt in line with our personal style and taste.  Because Bobo is a townhouse with several levels, we loved idea of being able to move around the venue from room to room, each with it's unique decor.  

To keep our wedding intimate and personal, we wrote our own vows, with some guidance from our officiant.  Although our vows were distinctly different, we heard laughter at the silly innuendos incorporated in our vows, but witnessed tears of joy as we publicly professed our love for each other. Paying tribute to Daniel's late mother, Edelia, was something that had to be part of our ceremony. We decided to light a candle next to a framed photo of Edelia to symbolically make her part of our day. Whether or not you knew Edelia, her presence in the room was surely felt by all in the room by the candle that remained lit for the remainder of the evening.  Another personal touch we added to our ceremony was acknowledging our parents unconditional love and support by offering each of them a red rose to symbolize our love and gratitude for them.    

All in all, when all the wedding planning was complete, we knew that Bobo would be the perfect place for our spring NYC wedding, and it was just that...perfect in every way!!

A Detroit Institute of Arts Wedding

We're rarely left speechless, but Jeffrey Lewis Bennett Wedding Photography sure wowed us with this gorgeous wedding at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The venue is beyond stunning! It's the perfect space for modern nuptials. 

The grooms look so chic in their suits with matching Lanvin sneakers. We love the play on formal & casual combined. 

Their 80-foot tablescape was pristine with palm leaves, clean lines and navy blue everywhere! The opulence of the venue is perfectly matched by the exquisite design of this fête!

This is the perfect way to kick off a new year of weddings! 

And we adore the love story...

"Vaughan and Van Thomas met in 2005 at a conference in Miami. For the next seven years they lived in different parts of the country and built a friendship over the phone. When Vaughan moved to Hong Kong in 2010 they took the opportunity of increased inconvenience to see if their relationship could go to the next level. Two years later Van Thomas joined Vaughan in Hong Kong which they used as a base to travel throughout Asia. While on a trip to the Philippines the couple got engaged.

The first wedding €œ"brainstorming PDF" followed almost immediately. During a trip to Van Thomas'€™s hometown in Michigan, his sister recommended visiting the recently renovated Kresge Court at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Both Vaughan and Van Thomas fell in love with the venue's architecture, history, and impressive collection. Over the next six months they planned their wedding and relocated to New York. One week prior to their big day, the couple exchanged intimate yet casual vows and were legally wed in Manhattan.

July 19th started with a morning run along the Detroit waterfront promenade, light lunch, and a photo session with the incredible photographer Jeffrey Lewis Bennett. At six in the evening, guests arrived at the Museum greeted with cocktails, heavy hors d'€™oeuvres, and the Horizon String Quartet playing their favorite popular music selections. Once everyone mingled and relaxed the couple invited their four siblings to the top of the gothic staircase to share meaningful readings focused on love with their guests. 

Vaughan and Van Thomas then recited emotional vows to each other and toasted to their union. After guests toured the private museum they were sat. The five course candlelight meal was served on an eighty foot table designed by Jen House Design centered in the Great Hall surrounded by fresco ceilings, antique armor, and notably one of Diego Rivera'€™s greatest works. The evening ended with music, dancing, and an abundance of indulgent comfort food. "

Art Deco Dapper Hour

In my lifelong quest to dispel stereotypes and create beautiful things (simultaneously, when possible), I am often thinking about concepts for photo shoots! This idea came to me a while back, and it was too good not to come to fruition.  

The idea for this shoot started pretty simply. The words “dapper hour” came to mind…a happy hour consisting of a dapper group. As I thought about it, I realized that this had to be a group of dapper women. There are so few places for masculine women and transguys to find clothing that I wanted to highlight the places that make a point to cater to this community. We lucked out with six beautiful models!  

Soon, the word art deco started getting tossed around and it was a sure-fire way to create the perfect winter/ New Year’s Eve décor and attire inspiration. A curated list of about twenty vendors all came together to make this incredible shoot happen! With suiting from J.Crew & Saint Harridan, a jumpsuit from & FOR LOVE, headpieces by Hushed Commotion and jewelry from Greenwich Jewelers & Gunner & Lux, these models were outfitted to the nines! I love that we were able to play with so many variations on classic suiting. One model wore a full suit, another wore a vest and trousers, while another wore suspenders. We were truly able to showcase a range of attire for a range of people. I genuinely think that anyone looking for inspiration can find something that would suit them in this shoot!  

We chose to work with more femme models, too, as we wanted this to be an inclusive shoot! Jumpsuits are one of my favorite wedding trends right now, so I had to have this one from & FOR LOVE. Again, we aimed for variety with our models. A short sequined dress, a stunning silk jumpsuit and a camisole with cigarette pants ran the gamut in terms of garb.  

Leah, of Color Pop Events, was a total rock star through the planning process! She had so many great ideas and helped me make my dreams a reality. She also brought in the star of the show, Remy, our dapper French Bulldog!  

Brookelyn Photography created so many beautiful images, we still can't stop drooling over them!  

The backdrop was set perfectly by 501 Union, with the help of Juli Vaughn Designs on floral duty and Octavia & Brown’s exquisite pieces!  

The beauticians on set, Nicole Sievers & Styles on B kept the models fresh and impeccably styled.  

With a palette of gold, emerald green and black guiding us, we really couldn’t go wrong! We stuck with some traditional art deco elements such as the design on the cake and infusion of gold everywhere, and the bar cart, but we wanted this to feel modern, too. The florals were much more lush than typical art deco décor and the graphic glassware made things current. One of the best additions to the shoot was a wall of paper feathers, designed and created by Gina Paola Design. She blew us away with this piece that fit in perfectly with our palette! Gina also created an illustration of a French Bulldog in a bowtie, which added a touch of dapperness to the bar!  

Sincerely Jackie took the illustration to the next level by using emerald green foil to emboss the coasters. Drink flags with the bulldog and “cheers” added a festive touch to the Bon Affair bubbly, which was perfect for our toast!  

The other elements on the bar were custom macarons by Swallow My Words. Min, the fabulous baker behind the company, finished the treats off with classic art deco patterns.

Finally, Purslane Catering created a delicious gin cocktail for the crew to sip on. It was finished with a black sugar rim for good measure.  

Looking at the finished product, my favorite thing about this shoot is that you could use it for wedding inspiration or living room décor. It is so versatile and inclusive! Oh, and totally luxe!
