Cipriani 42nd Street: Marissa and Mark’s Stunning Winter Wedding

By | Weddings | 9 Comments

It is my great pleasure to share with you all our client and friend’s, Marissa and Mark’s unforgettable winter white wedding celebration at New York City’s landmark space, Cipriani 42nd Street. White roses, hydrangeas, lilies, peonies and cherry blossoms bloomed through the magical doors of this premier event location.

Marissa and her now husband Mark were one of the happiest, brightest couples we have every worked with and made all the guests glow with admiration. I think you will agree that their joyful aura seems to be apparent even in these photos, don’t you think? M Benedict Verley captured all the beautiful moments.

Congratulations Marissa and Mark!

With Love,

Gorgeous Wedding at Oheka Castle!

By | Weddings | No Comments

From the moment I saw her inspiring Oscar de la Renta gown, I knew Lauren and I were a client/designer match made in heaven. And on November 21, 2009, it was my pleasure to make her vision a reality via a gorgeous wedding at Oheka Castle. I fell in love with both Lauren and her wonderful Mother, Sally, who was also beyond sweet. Through all of our correspondence we became like family. It was such a pleasure to work with them!

Light pink cymbidium orchids decorated this custom tree, with the Escort Cards hanging from the branches by pink satin ribbon. A pale pink and cream floral arrangement at the base, together with votive candles, gave a warm romantic atmosphere.

The Chuppah’s entire frame was covered with blooms in romantic hues of pale pink, white, ivory and green; using the season’s finest roses, stocks, peonies, ranunculus, hydrangeas; accented with clear crystal and hanging candles for a stunning, romantic impact. A memorable focal point for this day of celebration.

The day wouldn’t have been complete without the coordination of Ms. Shana Sperling, Shana Sperling Events, and Kelly at Oheka Castle. Beautiful music was provided by Starlight Orchestras.

Congratulations to the Bride and her lovely Groom!
