Real wedding: Erica + Alan

Categories   Real Weddings

Happy December, lovelies! The holiday season is officially upon us, and in honor, we’ve got the most romantic and creative celebration to show off – Erica & Alan’s New York wedding, styled and flowered by the ever-amazing Poppies & Posies.

The aesthetic was a playful and dark mix of old/new, based on a mood board put together by Erica, with a theme of “the garden of found objects.” Doesn’t that sound amazing? Among the greatness is moss-covered reception tables, a never-ending supply of precious vintage knick-knacks, and some very succulent floral arrangements. Plus, Erica, a copywriter, designed all the invites (printed on vintage handkerchiefs), save the dates, table cards, and programs herself!

We can’t help but say – we love this sequin jacket. Très chic, madame!

Moss is definitely an underrated decor choice – and such a creative and ingenious way to bring the charm of nature indoors (especially useful for winter weddings!)

Vintage for daaays, we love. Adorable usage of vintage books and children’s wooden block toys – we’re sure each guest felt just a little bit of nostalgia looking at those.

“We did it.” Oh gosh. You sure did. So cute.

Both bride and groom are self-describe foodies, so decadent and delicious eats were very important. Insert Stuart and Welch, who did a fantastic job with the catering. To top it off, they’re socially conscious too – they donate all remaining food & water to local organizations! Tasty AND charitable.

The venue (The Foundry) is absolutely terrific, and believe it or not, was not their original choice, but changed at the very last minute! See, sometimes hiccups in plans are a good thing! Everything looks so classy and grown up, and goooorgeous!

The very definition of beautiful, Erica & Alan. Congrats!

Glad to have bumped into this beautiful site more than once. Just a head ups. 100 Layer Cake was mentioned in the November Instyle Magazine 2010. So scary to be engaged. The question is "Now What?" I have never been a girl to visualize her wedding. Now what do I do? I just want a crazy jazz cocktail party for a wedding... with me appearing in song and dance with silver confetti like in Moulin Rouge. You know. Just a simple wedding...with Diamonds. xx : )
