Part 4: Reception & Centerpieces
Ashley and Tiffany’s heartfelt ceremony was followed by an ultra-stylish reception. “Since the floral chandelier was high impact with lots of volume and texture, I wanted table décor to be clean and simple,” says Ashley. The tablescape featured mix and match arrangements that included petite centerpieces of lush roses, café au lait dahlias, hydrangeas, and Phalaenopsis orchids set in rectangular vases. Also on display were geometric glass terrariums, provided by the bride and filled with a layer of white sand and blush hued blossoms. Glowing votive candles brought intimate warmth to the presentation. “The play between lavish and minimalist décor elements created an atmosphere that was balanced, yet still very interesting,” said the bride.

The Green Building had all the qualities Ashley, our featured bride and aspiring wedding planner, was looking for: an open, bare space offering endless creative options for styling and décor. “Wedding décor is constantly evolving,” says Ashley. “I feel like a great way to accentuate and bring romance and drama to a space is with hanging flowers. So I knew that I wanted a circle of flowers hanging over us.” Read More

If there’s one time in your life to wear something that reflects the truest you, it’s when you get married. And not everyone dreams of wearing a long, flowing wedding dress down the aisle.

When asked about how she chose her wedding day attire, Ashley begins, “I knew that I didn’t want to wear a dress.” Today, just about every top designer includes a few alternative options for the fashion-forward bride. She continues, “But I couldn’t find anything in the local boutiques. Then I came across the designer Jean-Ralph Thurin and made an appointment at his shop in Somerville, New Jersey.” During their meeting, Ashley detailed what she had in mind and the designer sketched it right on the spot.

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.
