R + S wanted a wedding in their fave place with their fave people, simple as that. Rebecca explains, I have this view on life that there is always more room at the table, so we went big and wanted everyone to feel at home. With a 300 person guest list, they were thrilled that their friends, owners of Rockin’ R River Rides, could accommodate their large, yet intimate wedding, right there by the river they both grew up near.

Thanks Jen Dillender Photography to for the photos below!

Stunning handcrafted greenery hung from the chandeliers and as garlands around the venue. Shawn’s parents hung the draping around the ceremony site, and his dad built the altar and table.

They knew the wedding’s location would be a bit unconventional, but it really made the perfect space for these two and their crew.

Rebecca says, Jen felt like an old friend who had always been a part of our big, loud crew. I loved having here there! And, she totally hit it out of the ballpark with the pictures… really… wow!

A fave moment, from the bride: We did a little group communion during our ceremony and all of our wedding party gathered in close with our officiant. This was really special to me as our friends really show us so much of Jesus and we got to honor our God right there together. It reminded me of how special these people are and how loved Shawn and I are. These people lift us up, carry us, and make us laugh so much! They’re there with bucket trucks, stringing garlands together by hand, doing hair, crying, praying, buying drinks… So much love. It moved me to get to share such a big day in my life with so many people that mean the world to me and to Shawn.

Cheers!

Copper and cobalt wedding inspiration | Photo by  Lavender and Twine | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=77687

Don’t you just love how a single color can inspire an entire event? Photog Danielle of Lavender & Twine has a thing for copper and couldn’t wait to see it in action: While I do love gold and other metallic tones, I’ve yet to see copper used much in weddings. I started daydreaming about a wedding day palette that could incorporate its simplistic beauty, and I ran my idea by Joelle of A Charming Occasion. I’m happy to say that she ran with it.

With a cobalt, burgundy, and copper color story in mind, Joelle styled a most elegant shoot:

Joelle says, We have an amazing venue, McCormick Home Ranch, near us and it was the perfect backdrop for this sweet, garden inspired look. I wanted something soft but with pops of color, and got to work with an amazing team of vendors to make that happen! This venue is a beauty, for sure!

Poppies and Posies event and florals design | Photo by Gary Ashley of The Wedding Artist Collective | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=77666

It’s been awhile since we’ve posted a proper vendor spotlight around here, hasn’t it? When we caught a glimpse into the studio space of the floral + event design experts at Poppies & Posies, we decided it was high time we shared a bit about their team and what they do. You might recognize their fabulous work from the NY summer soiree recap we posted last month – brilliant, right?

The P&P team is made up of the creative coordinator, Christina, who specializes in large scale installations like chuppahs, arches, hanging florals, and more. Susie is the studio manager and a floral designer; plus there’s an extensive freelance team that helps make all the magic happen. Then there is, of course, Sierra Steifman, Poppies & Posies co-founder and creative director, who chatted with us about her biz below.

Thanks to the guys at The Wedding Artists Collective for the photos.

Poppies & Posies has operated out of their current 2,000 sqft warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for the last four years. Sierra says, We painted the floors white this year to help brighten the space up and hung pegboards to organize our floral tools and non-floral tools. Organization is always a challenge for us since we have so many items going in and out the door each day. Between our prop shop, The Trove, and our event design work it is truly a revolving door of vases, lanterns, rugs, hurricanes and about a million other little things. Susie keeps us all in order by sectioning off the spaces and trying to keep items together that are similar.

Naturally, the team cozies up the space by keeping a little greenery around.

Sierra’s advice to those of you in wedding planning mode: I would encourage couples to have an open mind when sitting down to plan their decor and florals. This way your designer can give you suggestions based on the season and highest quality of product. Your designer may also suggest a color palette or style that you may have not other wise considered, but that fits you well. Our clients that are a little flexible always wind up with the prettiest flowers and overall decor at the end of the day.

One of our favorite events we designed this year was with Lyndsey Hamilton Events up at Locusts on Hudson. The couple and the bride’s family were all so sweet and trusting when it came to their big day. They shared their vision with us and then really let us run with it. In the end it was a huge success and very rewarding.

Thanks for letting us take a peek into your space! See the P&P vendor profile for more.
