Autumn afternoon wedding: Michele+Brian

Categories   Real Weddings

It’s easy to forget that the temperature outside is rising as you take in the serene beauty that is Michele + Brian’s wedding. The fields, the surrounding hillsides, the bursts of bright dahlia’s and the personal touches sprinkled throughout are having us already looking forward to the changing of the season. Well, maybe not that soon -we’ll still welcome the sun for now!

Isn’t Michele’s Saja gown dreamy? The simple addition of a floral brooch is the perfect way to accessorize.

These colored flags have definitely made it on the top of our list as one of the best ways to decorate an already beautiful landscape. Don’t they remind you of The Gates? Here’s what Michele had to say about how the flags came to be:

We were getting married at the end of a large field in mid-October and knew that the surrounding hillsides would be starting to get bare. In order to add some additional bursts of color to the scenery, we decided to make giant flags to put around the field. Brian bought PVC piping and couplings to make the flag poles (while we were able to find pipes long enough to use for the poles, we had to cut them in half to transport them – so that’s when the couplings came in handy). He bought black spray paint and covered the PVC with it so it looked more polished. He also bought the pieces of fabric, and I seamed the edges, including sewing a rope into the seam on one end of the flag, which we used to affix them the poles.

Imagine having a quartet learn a particular song to play as you walk down the aisle. Now imagine that song playing in an open field. Romantic, right? That’s exactly what happened at this wedding. Any David Lynch fans out there? You’ll love this. “Lauren’s Walking” from the David Lynch film “The Straight Story” has been an all time favorite song of Michele’s, so she requested that the Baldwin Quartet play it as they walked down the aisle. We love that the quartet learned the haunting and melodic sounds of Angelo Badalamenti just for their day. Magical!

What made the ceremony very special was our officiant, Puja Thompson. She has an amazing presence which really carried through the ceremony. She began the ceremony by ringing a Tibetan singing bowl towards the four directions of the earth, which started the ceremony off in a beautiful way.

Amy Eisenstadt, our florist and close friend of mine since high school, took me to the flower market in Manhattan to pick out the flowers. Dahlias were in season so we chose those for their bright colors. I’m an avid gardener (even in our little Brooklyn backyard it’s possible!) so Amy made sure to incorporate fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage) from my yard into each floral arrangement. I bought mason jars to use for the table arrangements, and with three different sizes on each table holding bunches of three different colors of Dahlias – it gave the table the perfect amount of warmth and color we were looking for. She was amazing, took all of our concerns and needs into account and made it the most beautiful day with all of her little touches.

Congrats Michele + Brian! You’ll have us dreaming for more weddings with flags like yours!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
