So nice to be featured again in Carats & Cake, this time, showing Kathryn and David’s Lenox wedding at the Wheatleigh. I never tire of looking at these photos by Heather Waraksa.
Here we are, already in February and I’m only just getting around to looking at the photos of Jessie and Jeff’s magnificent November wedding at the Rainbow Room. Thanks Lilian Haidar for the lovely photos. There were many discussions about color palette for the Rainbow Room. Ultimately, we decided upon a combination of mixed metals and crystal which already exist in the newly renovated landmark space. Flowers were an amazing collaboration between Claire Bean and Jessy Wolvek of Fleurs. Vintage family wedding […]

Once upon a time, I had a 22 course tasting at Brooklyn Fare Chef’s Table. No, that’s not a typo. 22 courses.

For anyone hosting a wedding at home, please allow me to share some simple advice. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. The secret to a tented wedding is to have a great Plan B….with a generator, a back up generator, and a dream team of vendors who smile through it all. Below, we started building the tent Tuesday just as the weatherman announced tornado warnings in the area. Who ever heard of tornados in the Hamptons? Well, just the threat. And […]
It’s remarkable how quickly grooms are able to make decisions when it comes to their own wedding attire and accessories. Such confidence. And then the day comes, and it’s time to tie that bowtie….. Looking good, David. Cheers.
It’s no surprise that Katie and Dave’s romantic September Wheatleigh wedding was featured today on Style Me Pretty‘s front page.
