Moms as Brides: Happy Mother’s Day Part 2

By:

Mothers-Day-Brides-Manhattan
Happy Mother’s Day to all our beautiful brides who walked down the aisle with their own son or daughter as ring bearer or flower girl! We always love to see the ways that children are included in wedding ceremonies and celebrations. It’s especially touching to see kids escort their moms to the altar.

To all the brides who got married with their children at their side, all the brides who became step-moms when they said their vows, all our brides who are now moms or moms-to-be… have a beautiful Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms who do so much to make their daughters’ wedding days special. Some of our favorite wedding memories this year are of time spent with mothers-of-the-bride, hearing stories about their own weddings, seeing the love and pride on their faces. Here are a few of our favorite wedding photos featuring these wonderful women.

Following Sotheby’s sale last week of a flawless 100.2 carat white diamond, here’s a great piece on the most expensive diamonds ever sold. And surprise – colored gems like the famous Pink Star top the list. Fantastic inspiration if you’re shopping for a unique engagement rings featuring colored stones.

THE REAL THING Cover

 In a single day in 2009, Ellen McCarthy became the wedding reporter for The Washington Post and broke up with her boyfriend of nearly two years. At age 30, she was suddenly a chick-flick cliche, interviewing florists and wedding planners between crying spells and dutifully smiling through conversations with blissful couples. Fortunately, her book’s resemblance to a Katherine Heigl movie ends there.

South Street Seaport Wedding on The Knot

By:

The-knot-chris-leary-weddings

Today on The Knot, a wedding we did back in 2012. What a sweet surprise to see our beautiful bride, with her bouquet of champagne roses, white Eskimo roses, peonies and anemones, and to remember that stunning skyline wedding cake. Unfortunately, the downtown Manhattan wedding venue with that beautiful view, Bridgewaters, has since closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. Let’s look back on this South Street Seaport celebration as a reminder of resilience, that essential quality shared by every great city and every great marriage.

Designing Our New Manhattan Showroom

By:

showroom-mood-board

As soon we saw this space, we knew it was the one! Located right across the street from Bloomingdales, in one of Manhattan’s best shopping districts, we are just blocks from some of New York City’s best wedding venues, including The Plaza Hotel, St. Regis New York and Central Park.

It’s a dream come true to design a space that reflects our aesthetic of beauty. We want to welcome our brides and invite them to relax. To make our vision a reality, we started by making a mood board. Basic elements were clear from the start: a color palette of grays and mauve, with crystal accents, modern, open shelving for display, and lush, textured seating.
