Dapper Montauk Club Brooklyn wedding: Melissa + Vincent

Categories   Real Weddings

Good morning, sunshines! Weirdly, we’re almost making good on our plans from last Monday. Remember the ones about always starting the week with a thoroughly inspired wedding, perhaps with a theme, and always artfully styled? Well, our reader Melissa appeared as our Monday angel this week with her divinely dapper wedding at the Montauk Club in Brooklyn.

Melissa is an art director and her hubby Vincent is a style director at Conde Net (which is the online side of Conde Nast). So um yeah, they have something to say when it comes to design, decor, and all around stylings. Can you tell?











Kay, give us a minute here to collect ourselves. You know??? Wow.

Melissa and Vincent designed their own invites and had them letterpressed by Enormous Champion. With frickin’ stunning calligraphy by Tara Jones.

And that ring pillow (that we are all dying to have for ourselves, right?)… Melissa made it. Um Melissa? Ever considered an etsy shop?

Flowers: The amazing Nicolette Camille / Dress: Amy Kuschel / Headpiece: Sara Gabriel Both purchased from (in Melissa’s words) the lovely and helpful and well priced Gabriella Bridal Salon in NYC / Catering: Montauk Club chef Mark Usewicz / Cheese plates: Saxelby Cheesemongers / Dessert: One Girl Cookies / Groom’s Cake: Blue Sky Bakery / String Trio: Hire Conservatory Alumni / DJs: friends Emily Ryan and Michael Goodstein / Photography: Weddings by Two

And “the star of the day- our beyond amazing day of coordinator who kept the day flowing perfectly and made sure we could totally enjoy ourselves!” : Christine Viola
(pretty good rec for you Brooklyn brides out there).

Now go forth and enjoy your Monday everyone. And THANK YOU Melissa for sending your amazing wedding photos over. We are certainly feeling inspired.

Hello everyone and thank you for your wonderful compliments! I was a huge fan of this gorgeous blog during our planning, so it's a honor to be included now that I am a Mrs. Cheers to the ladies of 100 Layer Cake! LPC- regarding the napkins: I bought the peacock ones at Broadway Panhandler here in NYC. The black and white patterned, and "MelVin 4 Ever" were designed by us, and lovingly letterpressed by our friends at Enormous Champion. Alison- You made Vincent's day with your Elvis Costello reference! xo M

Oh my gosh, where can I get both the California and Ohio fabric??

100layercake on Jul 7, 2009

Jennifer, The California and Ohio fabrics are actually vintage hankies. Your best bet is to try ebay and search "state hankies". good luck! Amanda

Marte on Jul 8, 2009

Oh such a lovely wedding! I would really really like to know where the groom's outfit is from. He has fabulous style.

Melissa on Jul 8, 2009

Hello Marte- I will speak on behalf of Vincent- his suit, shirt, tie and shoes are from Paul Smith- I believe the suit was from a one-off evening collection. The silk scarf is Alexander McQueen, which he stole from my closet! Yes, he does have great style :) M

annie@marryyoume on Jul 8, 2009

love her bouquet!

Jennifer on Jul 8, 2009

Thanks Amanda, found some!

amber of theambershow.net on Jul 9, 2009

I need to know where she got that ring!

Melissa on Jul 9, 2009

Hi Amber- Both my rings are vintage pieces from the 20s-30s- engagement ring is a transitional cut, and wedding ring is an eternity band of french cut diamonds. I love them! Both are from an estate dealer in NYC's diamond district, Eric's Originals (4 W 47th St). They have great selection and prices. M

jennifer on Jul 10, 2009

How gorgeously elegant and fun! :) I especially love the mini black and white cookies.
