We do so many events in a year so when a planner friend calls to collaborate on a shoot I almost always say yes as long as we can use leftovers. This collaboration was inspired by Alex from Sterling Engagements and was so on point with what we were doing earlier in the week I had to say yes! Hot pink everything, green garlands, and lots and lots of gorgeous peonies. Love this idea of an over the top cake station and the hanging bottles and florals make the whole setting so sweet and totally Vineyard Glam! Love it and thanks for the feature CWD and shot by Brian Leahy!

On August 9, Marc Jacobs Beauty launched at Sephora and select Marc Jacobs stores with over 120 products. And we were there in June celebrating the new partnership in NYC. A private dinner for 50 followed by a pop up shop for customers to come and test the new product out for themselves.
“I see beauty in many things,” Jacobs stated in a press release, “and I am attracted to all sorts of imperfection, to style, to confidence or experimentation. It’s unexpected and surprises you.”
We are loving the new products and are excited to celebrate his new Beauty line! Congrats Marc.

It was important to us for our wedding to reflect us both as individuals, and as a couple. Jon hails from the UK, and obviously loves music, while I grew up in Manhattan, and wanted our wedding to feel inherently New York.
Our first task was daunting: to find a large space and make it feel intimate. We had a sizable guest list, but didn’t want our wedding to feel overwhelming or impersonal. We looked at many beautiful raw spaces, but when we came upon Gotham Hall, we fell in love. It took a bit of imagination and help from florist Bess Wyrick (the brains behind Celadon and Celery) but we ultimately created a romantic garden feel, inside of an art deco ballroom. To put our own twist on the space and evening, sketches of the Union Jack, an American flag, and our cat Pearl, were featured on napkins and cocktail stirrers; we had a “taste of Britain” station during our cocktail hour featuring bangers and mash, shepherds pie, and other UK treats; and a dessert bar hosting our favorite New York baked goods ranging from Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding to two Momofuku wedding cakes.
We also took the evening’s soundtrack pretty seriously. We worked with Venus Ensembles to perform some of our favorite songs via string quartet during the ceremony, and had a jazz trio for the cocktail hour. Our one request – make the cocktail hour feel like a Woody Allen movie—we think they did a pretty great job! And for the reception, DJ Michael Antonia did a fantastic job of keeping everyone on the dance floor, burning off the calories from the Momofuku cakes, we hope…
