Caroline and Ben first met in 2015 when they both were working for a tech start-up in New York City. “Ben was my on-board buddy. He welcomed me to the company environment and my role within it,” Caroline remembers. They became fast friends, often going to lunch and happy hour together. “We were both in relationships at the time. Everything was work related, but there was always an underlying feeling that this could be more. Those romantic feelings were finally addressed that following summer.” Not yet on the same page of what they wanted in terms of a relationship, they dated on and off for the following six months. In an age where dating apps play instant matchmaker, their long, more traditional courtship comes across as refreshing. “Looking back, this period helped build the relationship that Ben and I have now,” Caroline says. “We had been colleagues, friends, then ‘more than friends.’ By the time we were ready to commit, we knew each other inside and out.”

Your parents, grandparents, and immediate family make up the VIP guests who deserve front row seats at your wedding. For this reason, designating the first and second rows (and third if needed) at your ceremony is important to avoid any confusion – no one wants to play an awkward game of musical chairs because they unknowingly sat where they shouldn’t have. Often groomsmen double as ushers and are on hand at large weddings, directing guests where to go as they arrive. But for weddings of any size, ‘reserved’ seating signs can be used to ensure your big day starts out flawlessly with everyone comfortably sitting down to the celebrations that are about to begin. From welcoming floral arrangements to personalized name tags, we rounded up beautiful ideas for assigning special seating at your wedding ceremony.

“It’s not every day you get to have your very own private event at the New York Botanical Garden,” BB Featured Bride Alexandra says. “Robert and I wanted our guests to experience just how truly magical the venue is.

One of the main draws of Gotham Hall is that it offers a ceremony atmosphere radiating dramatic sophistication beyond compare. BB Featured Bride Marisa realized early on how this would impact her décor choices. “The truth is I always wanted a chuppah that looked ethereal with a lot of greenery,” she says. “But that style just did not fit the space. Feeling the pressure, I scrolled through Bride & Blossom’s past designs and saw what appeared to be a ‘floating’ chuppah. I immediately thought ‘Oh, that’s it, that will work.’”

After the rehearsal dinner at Beauty & Essex the evening before, BB Featured Bride Elana spent the morning of her wedding getting ready at the Ludlow Hotel Penthouse. Then it was off to Angel Orensanz Foundation where guests arrived just as autumn twilight was beginning to descend on the Lower East Side. Here, Elana talks about her and Greg’s breathtakingly personal ceremony shared before family and friends.

Ceremony & Chuppah

In addition to its high vaulted ceiling, rich ornamentation, and spellbound atmosphere perfect for hosting an important celebration, Angel Orensanz Foundation is a symbolic landmark of Jewish history and culture in New York City. “The venue was once home to various synagogues over the years, serving waves of Jewish immigrants that once called the Lower East Side home,” Elana explains. “As an ode to the immigrant generations of our family before us, we only found it befitting to have our wedding in a venue, and in a neighborhood, that represents the cradle of the American Jewish experience.” Elana and Greg were also drawn to the fact that Angel Orensanz Foundation didn’t look like a wedding venue. “An art exhibition and event space as well as one of the oldest surviving synagogues in NYC, it felt very true to who we are as a couple,” the bride says.

Any sense that Sammi and Steven’s wedding was taking place on a Monday quickly fell away as guests took their seats on Tribeca Rooftop’s patio overlooking downtown Manhattan. The décor and breathtaking views combined with feelings of excitement to create an atmosphere that defied time and place. This day belonged to two people who were about to start their journey of a lifetime together. Here, BB Featured Bride Sammi remembers her heartfelt ceremony in the sky.

Part 3: Ceremony & Chuppah

An escape from the metropolitan hustle & bustle of the streets while celebrating the magic that makes New York City so alluring, Tribeca Rooftop offered the perfect setting for Sammi’s self-described over-the-top wedding style. The bride admits that her vision for ceremony décor was unclear when she first met with us. “I had pinned and saved so many gorgeous images of chuppahs. By my second meeting with Rachel (Bride & Blossom’s Founder), we had all the details figured out, or so I thought. Then about four weeks before my wedding, we decided to change the chuppah completely. I’m so glad we did, because I was obsessed with it!”
