One thing can be said about planning a wedding during a pandemic – you’ll have to modify your original vision. It’s not all bad though, we promise. Working with couples over the past year and half, we’ve noticed a willingness to step outside of the box, break rules, and be creative like never before. It’s inspiring to see how two people navigate uncharted waters, figuring out what matters most to them in order to put together a day that is an honest and heartfelt expression of their love.

Joye and Scott Wedding – Bride and Groom Kissing Bouquet Altar Arrangements – Tribeca Rooftop – Rafal Ostrowski Photography
“We’ve been to so many weddings, but never one on a Manhattan rooftop. After taking in the views, we couldn’t see us getting married without the NYC skyline in the background. It was just our vibe – the venue had everything we imagined for a dream wedding.” This week, BB Featured Bride Joye reminisces on her breathtaking sky-high ceremony at Tribeca Rooftop.
Part 3: Ceremony and Backdrop Arrangements
As guests made their way to the rooftop patio, they we welcomed with an iconic scene of downtown Manhattan that harmonized the city’s past and present, showing off time-worn landmark buildings against towering sleek skyscrapers. The weather couldn’t have been more picture-perfect. With not a cloud in the sky, sunlight filtered down, dancing off the steel and brick architectural giants to luminous effect. Read More

When asked to describe her style, BB Featured Bride Joye takes a moment and then answers, “Modern chic with a touch of romanticism.” Having a sense of what she wanted to wear at her wedding, Joye extended her research to designers she hadn’t heard of before. She came across Pallas Collective, a luxury label based in Australia. “I loved their designs,” the bride says, “But didn’t think they were available in the US. Soon after however, I found out they were having a trunk show in NYC and made an appointment.” Read More

Joye and Scott ran in the same circle of friends during college, but they didn’t start dating until after graduation. “I finally caved and let him take me out,” Joye says with a laugh. They clicked immediately and soon realized their connection went far deeper than anything they had experienced during those casual get-togethers at school. “I can honestly say that I wanted Scott in my life for the long-haul from the beginning. He really wasn’t the type to be in a steady relationship. In fact, I was his first serious girlfriend, so I knew that he had the same feelings.” Read More

Few wedding venues in New York City offer access to a modern, cosmopolitan experience amidst landmark surroundings representing a history and tradition that can be traced back to generations before. Tribeca Rooftop + Tribeca 360° is situated along an old cobblestone street tucked away in the heart of Tribeca’s downtown neighborhood. Housed in a printing press building from the 1920s, it has been fully renovated into a chic industrial event space highlighted by a soaring glass atrium, impressive glass window walls, and a rooftop complete with breathtaking views of Manhattan’s skyline. The melding of old and new, endless natural light, and a sky high outdoor terrace makes working at Tribeca Rooftop + Tribeca 360° a wedding florist’s dream come true. Read More
Cara and Vince Wedding – Bride and Groom Bouquet – The Estate at Creekside – Laura Huertas Photography
This time last year, no one could have predicted what 2020 had in store for us. We rang in the New Year excited for a new chapter of Real BB Weddings. This all quickly changed in the face of a worldwide pandemic. It became clear that weddings, perhaps the most social event of them all, would be greatly affected as our new reality unfolded by the day.
If anything, 2020 has forced us to change perspective and consider what is most important and valuable in our lives. The handful of weddings we did are a testament to this new sentiment. Faced with an unprecedented list of challenges, couples shifted their focus and asked, “How can we make the most of this day given the situation and make it feel special and meaningful?” Large and lavish celebrations gave way to small, intimate gatherings where every detail was heartfelt and thoughtful (not that they weren’t before, but you get the idea). And friends and family who couldn’t be there in person joined via Zoom and FaceTime. While original wedding visions may have changed, the love, emotion, and beauty that unites two people in life remained as strong as ever. Read More
