Claire & James Wedding – Bride & Groom – Capitale – by Susan Shek

 

Claire and James’ love story begins at the start of their freshman year in college. “We were actually introduced by one of my bridesmaids and her boyfriend, who is now her husband. She asked me to come and hang out with their friends one evening and that is when I first met James.” They hit it off immediately, but there was one small problem. Both were seeing other people at the time. Claire looks back and says with a little laugh, “Our relationships didn’t last too much longer. We went back home for Thanksgiving break and told our significant others that we had met someone. That was nine years ago, we’ve been inseparable ever since.”

After Jean and Bryan exchanged vows, guests gathered in the iconic lobby of the Bronx Post Office for cocktail hour.

As everyone entered the reception area, an atmospheric evening light had just started filtering through the venue to beautiful effect. Jean and Bryan along with thirty guests took their seats at the head table where they were welcomed by a magnificent floral display evoking a mood of enchanted romance. A gorgeous mix curly willow, blush cherry blossoms, white hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, delphiniums, burgundy scabiosas, brunia berries, and greenery were arranged on tall metal stands. Accented by teardrop-shaped glass bubbled, the blooms gave the impression of a floral chandelier hanging above the tablescape.

It was just days before their wedding at the Bronx Post Office and Jean and Bryan still didn’t know how the space was going to look. Uncertainty wasn’t with the décor – they had all those boxes checked. It had to do with the fact that through out the planning and design process, the couple was continually working against the day-to-day changes that the space was undergoing in the midst of construction.

Jean and Bryan alleviated many of their anxieties by making sentiment and tradition ever present themes through out the day. And once the bride and her father took to the aisle, it was clear to everyone that the couple’s wedding vision had been realized, and ultimately exceeded all expectations.
