But I was lucky, because I was able to pick out my colors.” She chose a stunning jewel tone yellow and orange saree decorated with gold accents. Read More

The power of a photograph to conjure memories and emotions from the most important times in our lives is undeniable. This is especially true for wedding photographs. Since childhood, Kim Mancuso has had a fascination for the captured image and its ability to share experiences and stories. We were first introduced to Kim’s work through BB Featured Bride Kristen’s summer wedding at Trumpet at The Gate. From the intimate moments to the grand gestures, her photographs were an authentic expression of the day from beginning to end.
Kim just launched her new photography website. With the Spring/Summer wedding season just around the corner, we thought it would be a great idea to interview Kim for our Women Paving the Aisle series. Here, she talks about her professional journey, unique approach to photographing weddings, building trust with clients, and creative inspirations. Read More
Ever since Mandy Moore’s wedding last year, we’ve been obsessed with the pampas grass wedding trend. Soft, natural, and available in colors ranging from white to whispery pink, it can be worked in to just about every decor element. For her private backyard ceremony, Mandy Moore used pampas grass to capture a feminine boho vibe. But it can be used to express a variety of wedding styles ranging from whimsical to sophisticated. Thinking of incorporating pampas grass in to your big day celebrations? We’ve got you covered!
Pampas grass brings luxurious volume and texture to the wedding backdrop, creating a scene guests will be talking about long after the vows are exchanged. Go wild with a rich and sprawling aisle and archway in a neutral palette. A circular arch of soft pink and beige stems combined with lush greenery and blossoms radiates heavenly romance. White pampas grass, blooms, and greenery arranged on a geometric backdrop is the perfect marriage of bohemian and modern styles. Read More

Given Hilary’s taste for glitz and glamour, it comes as no surprise that she celebrated saying “I Do” with a reception comparable to the fabulous parties F.

Here, the bride talks about the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.
Part 4: Reception, Centerpieces, and Sweetheart Table
After a preliminary round of toasts during cocktail hour, guests found their seats via a captivating escort card table and made their way to the Plaza’s ballroom. There, the vibrant pink color scheme gave way to white and gold. “Brad wanted an all white ballroom, which I thought was a nice idea to keep everything romantic,” Hilary says. “The Plaza is marked by gold ornamentation on the ceilings and walls. There was something so beautiful and elegant about having clean white.” Read More
