Featured Venue: The Village Club of Sands Point

Since the beginnings of Bride & Blossom, we have had the privilege of working with so many extraordinary venues, ranging from intimate urban spaces like Studio 450 to sprawling rustic-romantic landscapes like Blue Hill at Stone Barns. One of our favorite locations by far has been the Village Club of Sands Point, at 1916 Italian Renaissance-style mansion built in upstate NY by Issac Guggenheim.

What makes this space special is not only its inherent beauty, but its ability to be completely transformed into an absolute fairytale with the right touches. Our mother-of-the-bride said it best: “You all not only met, but exceeded our expectations for the day! You transformed the Village Club of Sands Point Mansion, which is already a beautiful setting for a wedding, into something that was magical and truly memorable.”

5 Signature Cocktails Perfect for Summer Weddings

Whether you’re looking for a classy alternative to an open bar at your reception, a non-alcoholic option, or are simply looking to add an extra touch of elegance to your cocktail hour, signature cocktails can be a great way to showcase your personality. You can serve these only during a pre-reception cocktail hour, throughout the entire event, or even in the limo en route from ceremony to reception! Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

1. His & Hers (via Brides)

 


2. Coconut Lavender Lemonade (via Confectionalism)

 

 

3. Mini Rum & Coke (via The Knot)

Rustic Floral Arches

Nothing says romance like a naturalistic arch custom-built for your wedding vows. From simple structures of branches and greenery to colorful compositions dripping with roses, there is no end to the creative combinations you and your floral designer can come up with.

These work well both indoors and outdoors, so don’t worry too much about whether or not they’re “in season.” A good florist can make the magic happen regardless of when or where your wedding will take place. Here are some of our favorite rustic arches and structures from the Bride & Blossom archives!

We Love: “Mr. & Mrs.” Details

People say “it’s all in the details,” and that saying is never truer than on your wedding day. While there are, of course, endless details in which one might become caught up, this week, we’re loving anything that proclaims you’re now the “Mrs.” to his “Mr.”

This is one of the easiest wedding trends to take advantage of, because there are so many ways to implement it! Whether you’re looking for a traditional chair accent, like this one below from a Bride & Blossom wedding at Maritime Parc, something quirky and cute from Amazon, or a clever way to proclaim that there will be two brides at your wedding, our gallery below offers a ton of ideas to spark your own creative interpretation.

Sunset Elegance at The Liberty Warehouse

The Liberty Warehouse is one of New York’s most unique and breathtaking wedding venues. The pre-war building on Brooklyn’s iconic Red Hook shipping docks was built in the 1850s, and is the only place in the state where you can see the Statue of Liberty’s face as you look out over New York Harbor.

This was an especially fun wedding to do because of the sunset timing and the overall elegance, enhanced by little details such as the bride’s shimmering, beaded gown, candles flickering in tall glass cylinders, and black table linens. By paying close attention to every element of the decor, we were able to create a romantic mood that set the stage for an unforgettable evening.

California Dreaming with Carats & Cake

Here on the East Coast, we often look to the other side for inspiration. West Coast weddings have a particular vibe: soft colors, outdoor settings (thanks to their perpetually perfect weather!), bohemian brides. We looked to one of our favorite websites, Carats & Cake, and picked out a few of the California weddings that dreams are made of.

Elizabeth & Eric, Palm Springs


With California’s majestic mountains, palm trees, and lush greenery providing the backdrop, this ceremony is everything a traditional Cali wedding should be. We love the touches of Hollywood-style glamour that offset the natural beauty of the location.

Venue: Avalon Hotel, Palm Springs
