You meet so many people in college. Some remain just people you casually say “hi” to on campus, while others become dear and trusted friends. And if you are really lucky, you encounter a person so special and unique that they become something more, a relationship grows, and love happens. “I met Tiffany through a mutual acquaintance and we have been inseparable ever since.”

We are excited to introduce Ashley, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for July! Ashley and Tiffany exchanged vows on a beautiful day at The Green Building in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Here is the first chapter in their love story.

After Jean and Bryan exchanged vows, guests gathered in the iconic lobby of the Bronx Post Office for cocktail hour. Everyone enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres amidst the backdrop of the famous murals by artist Ben Shaun. Once the newlyweds made their happy entrance, celebrations really got underway.

Part 4: Reception, Heat Table, and Centerpieces

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. Complementing petite floral arrangements brought an intimate feel to the dining space.

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.

Sometimes love happens without you even realizing it. Just ask Jean and Bryan. Their relationship went through many phases over the years before ‘romance’ even entered the picture. But isn’t it the love stories like Jean and Bryan’s, the ones full of twists, turns, and a bump or two that make the rest of us believe that “true love” is even possible?

Jean and Bryan said “I do” on a lovely spring day in a breathtaking ceremony and reception at the Bronx Post Office. Here’s the first chapter in their modern day fairytale.

6 Outside-the-Box Wedding Venues in NYC

One of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding is choosing a venue that really reflects you and your partner. Here in New York, your options could range from a luxury penthouse on Central Park to a rose garden in the Bronx with a flock of peacocks in attendance. You name it, New York can almost always make it happen. But it’s easy to limit your possibilities to the places you already know and love.  Today, we rounded up six NYC venues you may have never thought of as the perfect spot to say “I do”…

1) Museum of the Moving Image – Astoria, Queens

Sure, it might look a little off the beaten path, (though truly it’s minutes from Manhattan via the Queensboro Bridge) but the moment you walk in to the Museum of the Moving Image, you’re transported to a slick, sexy, futuristic wonderland.  Galleries remain open during private events, so your guests can tour the hundreds of interactive experiences, film artifacts, video games, and the uber-modern, all-white courtyard.  Plus, custom content designed by you and your partner can be projected on the walls throughout the space, or straight onto the big screen.
