Lisa & Stephen were married Spring 2018 at the NYIT de Seversky Mansion. Lisa had a particular criteria for her wedding venue. She knew their guest list will be on the large side (200) but they still wanted an intimate feeling. She also wanted a nice outdoor area for ceremony because she loved gardens. I had a couple of venues on the list that would give her what she wanted but when Lisa visited NYIT de Seversky Mansion she fell in love instantly. The best part was the venue’s layout. Dinner in one room and party in the other. This really gave the feeling of an at home wedding.
Lisa is a bride that is a dichotomy. She’s simple for her everyday life but her bride life she was EXTRA! When designing and planning of her wedding, I had to keep both “Lisas” in mind. I took all the things she told me she loved and coined her wedding “Glamorous Garden”. With the color palette of blush, ivory, green, gold and black; I found ways to include all the elements Lisa loved and keeping all shades of Lisa in mind while doing so.
Designing Lisa’s wedding started with the wedding stationery. I called on LePenn Design to design all of their wedding stationery needs. From save the dates to invitations and their wedding branding. The details from this design were used throughout the entire wedding to tie in their theme. This was to ensure their wedding was unique and personal.
For their wedding day flowers, I designed two different centerpieces that would fit perfectly in the intimate dining room without overpowering the guests’ tables. A low and lush design and a wreath design both adorned with white candles in different shapes and sizes. Each table had a crisp white linen and matching napkins with gold napkin rings, provided by The Finishing Touch NY and an oversize menu designed by LePenn Designed. The coordinating rose table numbers by Ten23 Design tied the look in just right!
While the guests dined, my team and Shades of Grey Production got the party room ready by moving some of the ceremony decor and lighting to set the mood for a Fun & Fabulous night!
My favorite part to design was the ceremony!! I reached out to Evolution Furniture Rental to create a custom halo made of boxwood greenery to be set on a white stage with more flowers of course! The design was complete with a custom aisle runner by The Original Runner Company. The couple’s wedding branding was incorporated onto the aisle runner and it was PERFECT.
On the top of both the bride’s and groom’s list of must haves was to make sure their friends and family have fun and feel loved. They wanted to make sure their guests experience was stellar!! So of course we got a little EXTRA, LOL. Traditional favors would not do. Lisa wanted a food truck for guests to have a late night snack after the wedding and Stephen wanted cigars for the fellas. The couple also went the extra mile and rented a bus so their guests can get to the venue safe and sound. And to really make sure their wedding guests were happy, I made sure the venue’s bar matched the taste level of the guests. If your family is from Trinidad, you know Johnnie Walker is a must at the bar. The venue happily worked with the couple to provide the bar menu that fit their guests request. And these personal touches are what make a wedding personal and memorable.
This Wedding was truly a night to remember. So many gorgeous details. I could go on and on but to the full feature and get all the details, get you a copy of The B Collective Magazine. Not only will you see this gorgeous wedding but it is filled with more stunning weddings, social events, style shoots and so much more from some of the best vendors in the business. Not to mention Eva Marcille is on the cover!!
