Boho Spring Wedding in NYC

Any time an Emily Steffen wedding comes our way, I brace myself for pure gorgeousness. She’s got a way with the camera and attracts some of the coolest clients around, so when she sent over Casi and Ben’s hipster-chic nuptials in NYC…well, I knew we’d happened upon something really good. It’s a day filled with quiet springtime romance, and in case you want more it’s all sitting right here.


From Emily SteffenCasi and Ben aren’t NY natives…in fact, they are from the great state of Wisconsin (yay) and have recently moved to call NYC home together…so photos in Central Park, with buildings peeking through the trees, was perfect for them! An intimate ceremony in a downtown Manhattan church, followed by a “cake sprinkle” throw as they left (I mean, what better way to send off newlyweds from the ceremony when the MRS is a pastry artist, eh?)! The guests were then, escorted by the ushers through the subway to the reception at the Radegast in Brooklyn! It was filled with wooden picnic tables, amazing beer selections and a grilling station for custom brats/sausage orders through the night!

The decor was a touch of spring meets romance. Spring bloomed cherry blossoms complimented the ceremony alter while romantic candles were sprinkled at Casi and Ben’s feet as they exchanged vows! Glowing candles and succulents were perfect for the tables at the reception as they were displayed on purple table runners to soften up the wooden picnic-type-tables! Large bulb lights and greenery finished off the romance of the reception space while guests enjoyed their WI beer and sausage for the night!

It was a casual night that was filled with laughing, shared stories and new friendships…I don’t think Casi and Ben would have imagined anything better! The city lights escorted them to their car as they drove away into the city to adventure together as Mr and Mrs!

We also have a gorgeous peak behind the day shot by Heart Stone Films. You’ll want to press play on this beauty, trust me…

Elegant Garden Wedding at the Grade School Where the Couple Met

Cute couple alert! These two met in 5th grade and the rest is history my friends. But the best part of this straight out of a movie story, is that they said “I Do” at the very school where they first locked eyes. It’s a Los Angeles garden affair, grade school style, crafted by Bash, Please with beautiful paper by Tiny Pine Press and image after gorgeous image shot by Max Wanger. See so much more in the full gallery.

Al Fresco

Ashley and Matt currently live in Washington, DC, but both attended John Thomas Dye School and met/became friends there in fifth grade. They got married at the school and their former Headmaster, who will retire next year after 34 years at the school, attended the wedding as well. Most of the wedding party went to school with them and they got engaged at Harvard where they both attended college. The wedding was all outside and full of delicate attention to detail with beautiful covered lounge areas – one of which was a bourbon and cigar area for the guys. After the ceremony and during the cocktail hour, guests were able to enjoy tequila shots and guacamole prepared at guacamole stations as they listened to the gospel choir sing great Motown. As the evening transitioned to dinner and dancing, guests were able to enjoy great drinks and food including a burrata and fig salad and other delicious treats that accompanied the main course.
