How did you and your husband meet? [Here’s the] short version: We went to highschool together but didn’t know each other. We then went to college together on the same scholarship, became friends, but never dated. We then went to work for the same company, [and] still never dated. After a few years of living our own separate lives, there came a time when both of us were single and looking for the same things in life. We finally began dating and never looked back.
Where was your wedding? We decided to get married at Valenzano Winery because it was a vineyard. See, on our first vacation together to Cape May, we were looking for things to do that neither one of us had done before. That how we came upon a wine tasting. We enjoyed the experience so much that it became a regular habit of visiting any wineries while on vacation and eventually the theme for our wedding day.
Spill the details about your wedding! We decided to go with the color scheme of purple and gray. Not only because purple is the color for grape but those two colors were our college alma mater colors. It all worked out very nicely. The girls had on purple dresses with a splash of gray through their belts* and the guys wore a light gray suit with purple ties. They all looked amazing! *My bridesmaids purchased custom-made silver belts that were the accent to their dresses. I heard about Alyson through one of my bridesmaid who had been a part of a different wedding that Alyson had also provided services. She came highly recommended and she was right!
What was your favorite moment? Walking down the aisle and seeing the faces of all my friends and family sitting and smiling, and then looking at the end of the aisle and seeing Miguel waiting and smiling back at me.
Congratulations to Mickey and Rebecca! I wish them a life full of love, health, and happiness.
Nowadays you can’t help but to see Gatsby inspired weddings. Whether it is on Pinterest, a bridal blog, or in you favorite bridal magazine, there is just something about that era that makes weddings even more glamorous.
If you fell in love with this beautiful trend, like many of us did (including myself), then you should fall in love with the Vintage Romance Collection.
Using Swarovski elements, lace, silver elements, and more, the Vintage Romance Collection is are sure to make you feel elegant. Within this gorgeous collection you will find a few key trends that you do not want to miss out on.
Statement Necklaces are a major trend this season. With all the fuss about low-cut necklines and backs, designers are adorning the dramatic look with statement or backward necklaces and unique capelets. Pearl and beaded embellished necklaces are more classic styles where as a beaded capelet is for the more adventurous bride.
Metal Hair Accessories have never been more popular then they are now since the flapper era. Modernize this look by adding a beautiful head chain or some pearl embellished hair pins. Great for any type of bride.
Flower embellished accessories are a MAJOR hit this season on all bridal accessories. This trend gained popularity due to the festivals which was easily adopted into the bridal market effortlessly. This dominating trend looks great with all wedding themes.
Large scale netting is being used for veils as more of a modern but vintage-inspired look. This trend is more commonly seen in avant-garde bird cage veils.
Encrusted belts and sashes seem to always be in trend but this time they are stepping up their game. Belts are adorned with beads and rhinestones in art deco geometric patterns. The embellished belt has become a staple accessory for the modern day bride.
After weeks of planning and multiple rescheduling, a group of 16 amazing people gathered together for a photoshoot on Saturday, October 3rd. Even though it was dark and gloomy outside, we managed to keep the mood light and cheerful indoors. Mind you, the first scheduled date was postponed due to the weather. I was not letting a little ol’ hurricane stop it this time.
I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I first planned this shoot. I’m definitely a creature of habit because I always bite off more than I can chew, but somehow it all came together.
11 models total; 2 brides, 2 grooms, 5 bridesmaids, 1 ring bearer, & 1 flower girl. All of which I designed and made new accessories for every single model. I didn’t even think twice about doing it, which either means I’m crazy or extremely passionate about my work.
Originally the shoot was supposed to be outside so that we could capture the historic Brooklyn Bridge shot in Dumbo. Like I said earlier, mother nature wasn’t cooperating. So I sucked it up, gathered whatever decor I could from my apartment and my friends, made some wall hangings, and voila! Wedding photoshoot decor.
The bouquets that the girls are holding were also made/arranged by myself. I took a trip to the flower district the week prior and bought a ton of silk flowers. I’m glad I did because I wouldn’t have had the time to arrange fresh flowers the morning of. Between decorating the room, styling the hair, styling the models, and directing the shoot I had barely anytime to think.
However, this day would not have happened without the talented individuals who shot the photos, applied the beautiful makeup (with next to no breaks! sorry for the marathon!), and lets not forget the models. You were all outstanding and I can not thank you enough! I seriously can’t. Another big thank you to Patty who started the day at 9:30 running around and of course helping me immensely. All of the behind the scenes photos can be viewed in the gallery to the right. I cannot wait to launch the new accessories that were used for this shoot! Stay tuned, because “Vintage Romance” is launching soon!
