Still, the night’s mood was joyous and full of energy with guests partying well into the late hours. Here’s the final chapter of Madalyn and Jon’s Bride & Blossom wedding story.

Part 4: Reception, Card Table, and Dance Floor

After Madalyn and Jon said “I do”, festivities got underway with a cocktail hour. “For the reception, I knew that I wanted to have the ceremony flowers suspended over the dance floor,” Madalyn says.

We love when a bride puts a unique spin on wedding traditions. Symbolizing the home of the soon-to-be newlyweds, the chuppah is one of the most important aspects of the Jewish wedding ceremony. It also lets the bride be creative with décor, and express their personality and style. This week, we talked with our featured bride Madalyn about her breathtaking Lucite and suspended floral chuppah.

Part 3: Ceremony

When guests began arriving at Guastavino’s for Madalyn and Jon’s wedding, New York City was in the midst of its first snowfall of the season. Everyone was more than happy to take cover inside the warm, picturesque venue, but what they were about to see would exceed all expectations.

Part 1: Engagement & Planning

When the time came to propose to Madalyn, Jon made sure the life changing moment would exceed her greatest expectations. Knowing that she wanted to visit Beacon, NY, Jon planned an end-of-summer trip to the picturesque upstate city. Their itinerary started with a scenic Saturday morning hike up Mount Beacon. It was suppose to be a relaxing start to the day, but Jon’s pace suggested otherwise. Madalyn remembers, “He was practically racing up the mountain!”

Part 3: Ceremony

“I loved having our ceremony in a church. Holy Trinity Cathedral is the church that we attend regularly and our priest married us. Everything felt very close and personal,” recalls Aerin.

Located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Holy Trinity Cathedral was the first Greek Orthodox Church to be established in New York City in 1891. The Romanesque Revival exterior opens up to a breathtaking space that evokes the look and feel of an exquisite box of jewels.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

 Many brides-to-be approach the topic of wedding dresses with apprehension, knowing that the process can take weeks, even months in some cases. When asked about her experience, Aerin said, “ I was enjoying planning for my wedding so much that when it came time to find a dress, I was beyond ecstatic.” Early in her search, she came across a Pronovias dress in a bridal magazine. “My heart was set on it,” she recalls.” With fingers crossed, Aerin made an appointment with the designer’s flagship store in Manhattan to try the dress on in person. She remembers that special moment of looking in the mirror, “The dress fit effortlessly and I felt like it was meant to be.” Made of crepe and tulle fabric, the breathtaking Pronovias design features exquisite gemstone embellishment along the back trailed by a sweeping skirt.
