Real Weddings: Meet Jenna. Pt. 2, the first look

Welcome back! We left Jenna and Omri, last week, after their pre-rehearsal dinner photo shoot and today we rejoin them for the first look! These two are so obviously full of fun and love, just raring to go. No doubt we are in for a good time (amiright?). Jenna chose our silk cloque, backless ballgown with a plunging neckline (L'Elysee) for the ceremony and OH how she moved it!!! Hope to see you again next week for coverage of the ceremony and after-party. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

Real Weddings: Meet Jenna. Pt. 1, the rehearsal dinner

Isn't life grand? Stick with us for an extended look at Jenna and Omri's wedding celebration and you won't be able to deny it! These two love birds did it up. They started their festivities off with an NYC photoshoot, pre-rehearsal dinner. Jenna wore our Ruffle My Feathers Dress and hit the streets. Stopping for a quick twirl in the park and for a photo in front of the Shake Shack. These two then joined their nearest and dearest and indulged in the Roman-inspired pizza and original dishes that are the specialty at Marta (the swanky eatery in The Redbury Hotel in Manhattans NoMad neighborhood). Stay tuned for their fun filled first look AND their too-good-to-be-true dance party.

Real Weddings: Meet Kelly

Chris and Kelly had a super personal, ultra casual, and decidedly non-traditional wedding. And we LOVE it! Kelly is obsessed with all things miniature. Tiny pink pineapple bouquets and bitty gold animals were the perfect way to incorporate minis into her plan. This couple had their priorities clear from the get go; food, drinking and dancing! They fed their guests delicious fried chicken and cake from Wegman's, friends played great dance music, and they ended the night at their favorite bar, Puffy's in Tribeca. Mission accomplished! Congratulations you two.

Inspiration: Xantha by Charlie Juliet

As we savor the last weeks of summer we are looking back at this springtime in New York shoot, by Charlie Juliet, with particular fondness. With the soft focus and sweet pastel blooms we can almost feel the warm gentle breeze on our faces! Luckily fall is also lovely...and it's just around the corner.
