It's finally warming up here in NYC(!) which has us daydreaming of days at the beach...
Today's moodboard comes from our fantastic intern, Tess, who is rejoining our team this summer! We're so excited to have her back in the office soon, but in the meantime she'll be prettying up the blog from time to time all the way from Seattle.
Have a wonderful start to your week friends!
Today we're sharing some photos from a fun styled shoot we did in February up at Lambs Hill Farm in Beacon, New York. We had a lot of snow in the north east this year... so we decided to celebrate the beauty with Fondly Forever Photography, and McKenzie Miller Films, instead of grumble about the cold. Winter can get a bad wrap, but it turns out that we LOVE doing winter wedding!! There's something so cozy and romantic about this time of year, and we wanted to soak it in before we said our final good by, and welcomed yet another Spring.
We love this behind the scenes gimps of the day from Mckenzie! We're all so bundled up and in need of a tan. This will be fun to look back on in July ;)
If you haven't been here yet it's time to call up your friends and make some big plans. Jack's Wife Freda is a Soho favorite, serving the quality of food you'd only expect from a homemade meal. With influences from South Africa, Israel, and Greece (to name the least), there's an eclectic variety of food waiting to be discovered here!
We arrived on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to find that the place was packed! We sat down to a picturesque cafe table and needless to say it didn't stay empty for long.
The notorious Jack's Burger lives up to its reputation. A king among other peasant burgers, its served on a potato bun with tomato, fried onions, and at the option of melted Gruyére (yes, please!) with a side of hand cut fries. The bun itself is phenomenal. The potato bun has a dense, yet fluffy texture allowing it to complement the meat without getting too soggy. And the meat itself was cooked to a perfect medium, making this one of the best burgers around town.
Caution: the Prego Roll does live up to its name, and it will in fact give you a food baby for a few hours after consumption—but its well worth it. This Portuguese skirt steak sandwich is served with garlic butter and hand cut fries. The combination of a perfectly cooked steak with a rich garlic butter is heavenly. The hand cut fries are crisp to bite and soft on the inside-the way all fries should be.
Make sure to go check out this restaurant, and it might even cure those Monday blues!
We love to travel and we love doing weddings overseas so we're starting a new segment on the blog that focuses on weddings around the world! Who better to lead with than one of our favorite photographers, Bryce Covey?! He shot this wedding at a gorgeous estate in Spain... complete with a castle! We're loving the combination of the grandiose, romantic feel of the ceremony on the expansive lawn and the intimate feel of the table setting for the reception!
Instagram has not only become an amazing source of Inspiration for us, but also a place we turn to to find new and talented vendors all around the world. It's a wonderful creative outlet and today we're sharing a few of our current faves with you. Happy browsing!

Hello Spring Time! Last Thursday marked the first day of Spring, and although it doesn't quite feel like it here in New York, people around the globe are celebrating the beginning of the new season in some very magical ways. Celebrating Holi has quickly risen to the top of our bucket lists! Holi is the spring festival of color and love in India. It is most famous for the vibrant, dyed powders that people use to play and color each other with. We are lucky to be in an industry that just can't seem to find enough reasons to celebrate, even if it's half way around the world! India's culture of rich and bold colors serves as an inspiration and reminder to break out of our comfort zones and live life in color!
This month has been filled with fun press, and today it's Tina + Raul's turn on Martha Stewart! These guys were so creative and such a blast to work with. We put this wedding together in just 4 months, and we only wish it had been longer so that we could have spent more time dreaming of fun details with these two. Head over to Martha today, and relive all the good times :)

When people color the streets in green, you know it's time to break out your dancing shoes, order a Guinness, and go out to celebrate! To honor St. Patrick's Day tradition (and to avoid getting pinched!), we're dressing up the blog with some gorgeous inspiration from the natural green colors of Ireland. Between the whimsical green surroundings, accents of cream, and ancient castles; what's not to love? You can also have your wedding in an ancient castle--and you better believe nothing beats an Irish castle wedding! So let us help you plan your next destination celebration!
Get excited for St. Patrick's Day festivities!

It's hard to believe that it's already March! This year's continuing to pass before our very eyes. We have been gearing up for all of the amazing events we have planned as we officially head into our busy season. Oh, and it has been busy alright! It's days like these where we daydream of relaxing on a warm, sandy beach with a nice cocktail in our hands. But since the beach is hardly accessible and the warmth seems even less likely nowadays...I guess we'll just settle for the cocktail. Here are some of our favorite drink recipes to help you unwind from a busy Monday--because hey, its 5 o'clock somewhere ;)
Remember when it was warm enough to leave the house without a coat, jacket, or sweater? I know, it seems like some far away past that we'll never experience again, but believe it or not- we're in the home stretch of this long, long winter. Looking at these fun and sunny pictures from Ilana + Tim's engagement shoot, has us day dreaming of leisurely walks through the West Village and lingering at the farmers market in Union Square. Plus, we had so much fun planing Ilana + Tim's wedding (those pics coming soon!), that we'll take any excuse to reminisce ;).
