After Sammi and Steven’s picture-perfect ceremony overlooking Downtown Manhattan, guests were treated to cocktail hour, enjoying hors d’oeuvres alongside the newlywed’s signature drink, The Winston, named after their French bulldog. Then everyone headed to Tribeca Rooftop’s reception room for dinner followed by a glittering night of fun. Here, this month’s featured bride shares the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding Story.
Part 4: Reception & Centerpieces
When asked about the inspiration for her reception décor, Sammi said, “I knew I wanted everything to stand out from all of the weddings I had ever been to. I also wanted my reception to be a graduation from my ceremony, which was more intimate with softer colors. Florals were always going to be a big part of my decor, so in my eyes, I visualized having three different centerpieces, numerous varieties of flowers and as many shades of pink as possible! I wanted the vibe to be glamorous, romantic, and of course fun!” Read More

Part 3: Ceremony & Chuppah
An escape from the metropolitan hustle & bustle of the streets while celebrating the magic that makes New York City so alluring, Tribeca Rooftop offered the perfect setting for Sammi’s self-described over-the-top wedding style. The bride admits that her vision for ceremony décor was unclear when she first met with us. “I had pinned and saved so many gorgeous images of chuppahs. By my second meeting with Rachel (Bride & Blossom’s Founder), we had all the details figured out, or so I thought. Then about four weeks before my wedding, we decided to change the chuppah completely. I’m so glad we did, because I was obsessed with it!” Read More

Many of us can attest that our first impressions of romance came from the fantastical animated films by Disney. But very few can say that Disney played a direct role in finding their true love. Christina and Ben both have acting backgrounds and met while working as performers for Disney Cruise Lines. Getting into character day in, day out in such close quarters, close bonds with colleagues inevitably form. Christina looks back at that exciting time when their relationship was transitioning from a working friendship to something more and fondly says, “I guess you can truly say, ‘it all started with a mouse.’” Read More
