Not many couples can say that the world’s biggest superstar brought them together. Yani and Divinity met while touring the world with Beyonce on The Beyonce Experience in 2007. “Divinity was her bass player and I was one of her dancers,” Yani says. Achieving that level of professional-artistic success requires talent and dedication. She continues, “Divinity’s very passionate, focused and disciplined – qualities that I also see in myself. We connected on that level. And she has a great smile.”
We are excited to introduce Yani, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for September. Yani and Divinity exchanged vows on a picture-perfect day at Liberty House. Here, she shares the first chapter in their Real BB Wedding story. Read More
When Heather first met Amos the Thursday before Memorial Day in 2008, she knew there was something special about him. “I work in the spirits industry and was doing a tasting in the Hamptons during the holiday weekend. I told him that in order for us to have a first date, he would have to get himself a hotel room out there. Finding a hotel in the Hamptons around Memorial Day is near impossible, especially on such short notice. But, somehow, he did it! That really gave me insight into the kind of person Amos is.” 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
Lorenza & Pete Wedding – Wedding Party – Ceremony – Church of St. Paul the Apostle – by The Hons
“I’ve always loved the tradition that you go to a church and get married,” says Bride & Blossom Featured Bride Lorenza. “Both Pete and I are Catholic and our faith is very important to us. We both have nostalgic memories of going to church as children and wanted the rituals and songs to be part of our wedding.”
Part 3: Ceremony
It’s not uncommon these days for a couple to have both their ceremony and reception at the venue, especially in New York City. At the same time, the city is full of beautiful churches ideal for a religious ceremony. One in particular stood out to Lorenza. “When I was at CNN, my work schedule was pretty busy,” she says. “The Church of St. Paul the Apostle was just a block away from my office, so I would go there for mass when time allowed. And every time I walked through the doors, I was overtaken by its beauty.” Read More
