Joye and Scott Wedding – Bride and Groom Portrait – Tribeca Rooftop – Rafal Ostrowski Photography
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

When we think of winter wedding flowers, we often jump to an all-white color scheme, while in fact there is a wide range of flowers in many colors available in winter to suit any floral design vision. Amaryllis, Anemones, Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Peonies are some of the most popular winter blooms, as well as many varieties of Roses.
Even if you’re committed to an all-white winter wedding, mixing and matching shades of white can make for a stunning array of tones, textures and shapes, from antique ivories to soft creams to classic white-as-snow. Silvery accents of Dusty Miller or Silver Brunia make for beautiful finishes for a monochrome winter wonderland look. Read More

“Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue, And a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
We all know this little rhyme, listing what a bride’s to have with her on her wedding day to insure a long and prosperous marriage, but where did it come from? And why something blue?
The rhyme dates back to 19th century England, when each of these tokens symbolized something the bride’s friends and family wished upon her partnership. “Something old” insured the bride would never forget where she came from, “something new” for the times ahead, and “something borrowed” from a happily married friend or family member, in hopes her happiness would be passed over.
Melanie and Graig first met in October 2005, as they were leaving the bar PS450 in Kips Bay. Melanie gave Graig her business card before scurrying into a cab home with her friends. They exchanged only occasional emails over the next ten years, even after discovering a mutual friend (a friend of Melanie’s and also Graig’s sister) suggested to them separately that they go out on a date – they never listened. Finally, Graig’s sister approached Melanie at the friend’s wedding, exclaiming, Can you just go out with my brother already? to which Melanie replied with, Go tell him I say hi! So at last, a decade after making one another’s acquaintance, Greg got Melanie’s number and asked her out on a date! After that it was as if they had known each other forever…or 10 years! Read More
