It’s practically unheard of these days for a couple to meet without the help of a dating app. Nicole and Matt were introduced the old-fashioned way. “When I started at my company’s New York office, they sat me next to him,” Nicole says. “We would get coffee. Overtime, we began flirting a little, but nothing really happened.” Well, nothing really happened immediately.

We are excited to introduce Nicole, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for December. Nicole and Matt said ‘I Do’ on New Year’s Eve at Houston Hall. Here, she shares the first chapter of their love story.

With the start of fall just days away, we have been reflecting on the summer wedding season. And when it comes to luxury bridal fashion, flowers, and venues, the famous brides who walked the aisle this past season ignited our hearts and imaginations. Their highly anticipated nuptials took place at a French château, London church, English cathedral, and exclusive Hawaiian hotel. While these weddings were spectacularly lavish in every way possible, they were also a beautiful expression of each bride’s unique style and personality.

Katharine McPhee
Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s much-discussed courtship culminated with the couple exchanging vows at the Church of St. Yeghiche in South Kensington in late June. The Actress-singer wore a gorgeous custom Zac Posen dress featuring a ballgown silhouette, sweetheart neckline, and layer upon layer of striped tulle skirt. She accessorized with a dramatic cathedral veil and soft colored floral and greenery bouquet. The ceremony décor of lush, bright blooms created a striking contrast against the church’s ornate interior. For the post-ceremony celebrations, which took place at a private club, the bride changed into a silk cocktail dress, also by Zac Posen. Reception florals had a decadent, English garden feel with verdant greenery embellished with white and green roses and hydrangea.

Your wedding is going to be the biggest party you’ll ever throw. And we’ve all seen the aftermath of a good party. From the leftover bottles, food containers and bags to the use-once-and-throw-away decorations, it’s a big carbon footprint.

Making smarter, sustainable decisions in the way we consume is something we should all be practicing. With some planning, incorporating these principles into your big day is easy to do. And as you will see, having an eco-conscious wedding doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style and personality.
