Oh, what a dreamy garden wedding!
Allison chose Poplar for her outside ceremony in sunny California. Her creamy complexion and coordinating color palette just glow in this draped gazar confection!

How gorgeous is Claire and Scott’s rustic winter wedding in Philadelphia?
Claire used a beautiful combination of seasonal greenery, magnolia leaves, natural branches, and succulents to create a warm and woodsy vibe with elegant details. Her Mulberry skirt and Kensington bodice were finished with a cozy topper for just the right amount of vintage glamour.

Claire’s gown was purchased from Lovely Bride Philly.
Kristin was such a stunner in the Winchester gown, finding the perfect balance of sleek, sexy, modern, and whimsical.
The crystal Heritage belt added just the right amount of sparkle at the waist for an overall look that we just adore!
All the rain in NYC couldn’t keep her radiant smile away!

Congratulations Kristin and Jeff!
We are in awe with Georgia- she looked absolutely stunning!
The crystal embellishments and tulle overlay on Downton in natural white made the perfect match for her
oh-so-perfect wedding day.a word from our bride..
“Andrew Brodsky and I were married in June 2014 at the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls, a converted mill with floor to ceiling windows and original wooden beams, on the banks of a waterfall.
We met our first week at Hamilton College, the same small school in upstate New York that my parents attended. Looking back on it, our wedding was just like Hamilton—we were surrounded by supportive, loving people, in a gorgeous natural setting, feeling entirely happy and at ease. Both the ceremony and reception focused on the loveliness and elegant simplicity of weddings from times-gone-by: Flowers everywhere, a 1930s jazz band, groomsmen in tuxes, bridesmaids in shimmering champagne gowns. Carol Hannah’s Downton dress fit this scene perfectly.
It was the culmination of a stunning 18 month engagement. Andrew proposed to me after Christmas 2012, at Bryant Park’s skating rink with my parents and future maid-of-honor looking on (he got on his knees in skates! No easy feat). Not long after, I made an appointment at Carol Hannah’s showroom to see a dress in person that my mother and I couldn’t stop talking about—it was the only wedding dress shop I visited.
Thank you to Dara and Carol Hannah for making the showroom one of the warmest, charming places I’ve ever been to. My family and I were so stunned by Downton, and the way I looked, that when I said yes to choosing it, we couldn’t stop laughing at how surreal it all was! An unbelievable experience from start to finish.”

Congratulations Georgia and Andrew!
The team over at Karma Flowers perfectly captured our vision with the decor, incorporating mercury glass, mixed metallics, and a beautiful collection of geodes.
First comes the runway, then comes the party! Mint Catering created our signature ginger fizz champagne cocktail, which we’ll be sharing the recipe for here shortly as well!
A thousand thank you’s to our talented friend Matthew Ree for capturing these behind the scenes moments!
What is it about a beach wedding that is so appealing? Well, if this inspiration shoot from Brett Heidebrecht Photography is any indication, it might have something to do with the drop dead gorgeous lighting, saturated hues, and the casual elegance portrayed here. Styled around mingling watercolors with the natural beauty of the California coast, we love how the Downton gown seamlessly blends the two concepts in a way that leaves us yearning for the salty kisses of the seaside breeze.
