I'm so happy to share Nadia and Tim's gorgeous Spring wedding at Maison May in Fort Greene Brooklyn (formerly iCi Restaurant) is featured on Style Me Pretty New York and Little Black Book blogs! See the full story here - xoxo!
The story of how Nadia and Tim met sounds like it's the plot of your favorite romantic movie. They met in the elevator of their apartment building in Brooklyn. It was love at first sight and after a few weeks of bumping into each other, Tim finally asked Nadia out and the rest, they say, is history! The happy couple wanted to celebrate their wedding in the place where their love story began and Brooklyn was the only choice. They chose Maison May (formerly iCi Restaurant) in Fort Greene for it's quaint location, gorgeous outside garden and of course, delicious food. Nadia wore a stunning structured wedding dress and veil from Carol Hannah. She splurged on her blue studded Valentino shoes and wore her grandmother's crystal vintage necklace and earrings for her something old and borrowed.
Nadia's bridesmaids each chose their own dresses. The only prerequisites were that they had to be blush and sparkly - so pretty! The Bride and Groom got ready separately at the Wythe Hotel before heading to the Church in Manhattan. Tim was in awe of his blushing bride as she was escorted down the aisle by her Father and Step-Father. After their wedding ceremony, we headed back to Brooklyn to the breathtaking grounds of the Pratt Institute to take their bridal party portraits. It was peak Cherry Blossom season in New York City and we took full advantage of the lush garden and fresh blooms. Guest arrived at Maison May and were treated to glasses of champagne in celebration of their nuptials. Custom table names were created by Laura Hooper Calligraphy that represented important brooklyn streets and locations that were meaningful to the couple.
Each place setting was set with a package of lavender shortbread as their wedding favors. The intimate space of Maison May was perfect for their small wedding. Guests dined alfresco outside in the garden under the string lights. Nadia and Tim's wedding day was perfect from start to finish and I'm so happy that they asked me to be part of such a lovely celebration. Congratulations Newlyweds!! xo

I'm so thrilled to see Phoebe and Luke's chic, modern and simple wedding featured on Style Me Pretty's main page! Their gorgeous wedding was held in Central Park followed by their reception at Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. Enjoy! xo
As the sky opened and the rain began pour down in Sydney, Phoebe ran into a bar for cover unknowing that her soon-to-be-husband Luke was sitting at the counter staying out of the rain himself. After a few cocktails and getting to know each other, this would soon become their very first date which would lead up to Luke's proposal a few years later. The Australian couple decided to have an intimate destination wedding in New York City. They invited eleven of their closest family and friends to join them in Central Park and witness them become husband and wife. Phoebe looked absolutely radiant in her white lace cocktail dress and crystal encrusted headpiece from Dolce and Gabbana.
As they held hands, exchanged rings and officially became Mr. and Mrs., there was not a dry eye in the park. Phoebe and Luke surprised their guests, who traveled from Australia, with breathtaking views of NYC on the rooftop of their private reception at Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. As the summer sunset began to set across the east river, the newlyweds toasted their new marriage with a freshly popped bottle of champagne (champs if you're an aussie ;). I absolutely love small, intimate and romantic weddings and truly enjoyed being part of Phoebe and Luke's gorgeous wedding day. Cheers to the happy couple! xo
