Modern White Loft Wedding at Studio 450

There’s something about a white wedding. It’s as classic as they come (think tuxes, lace, and chandeliers). But this white wedding is taking on a fresh modern style with Studio 450 as the backdrop, the New York skyline in full view and details by Roey Mizrahi Events and Blade Floral And Event Design that add a dash of sparkle to this loft affair. Get cozy with Lindsay Madden’s beautiful imagery right here.


From The Bride…I’m known to be difficult to surprise, but I was completely shocked when, on a freezing January Thursday afternoon, Danny (who was supposed to be on vacation in Miami) popped up in Hudson River Park and proposed (a friend lured me to the park by suggesting we grab coffee near my office)!

Though the proposal was a shock, I must admit that I definitely had a vision for our wedding. Since I was little, I’ve been obsessed with NYC, and years ago, I saw a story about a New York loft wedding in NYC that stuck with me. Years later, I moved to NYC and met and fell in love with a born-and-bred Queens boy, so it made perfect sense to get married in the city we love, and bring the picture in the story I read to life!

Right after we got engaged I googled ‘nyc loft wedding,’ and Studio 450 popped right up. As soon we walked in, I knew it was the place where we would get married. Not only does it have incredibly breathtaking views of the city, but it was the perfect place for the ‘modern,’ ‘classic,’ ‘airy’ feel I wanted for our wedding. I wanted to play up the clean, open feeling of Studio 450, and I love muted colors, so choosing our color scheme of gray, white and silver was an easy one. I know that ‘classic’ and ‘modern’ are sort of opposites, but our fantastic vendors immediately understood and perfectly carried out our vision! While I thought I had really modern taste, Anne from Blade Floral quickly coined me a ‘modern romantic’ – and she was completely right! She created a stunning, romantic chiffon chuppah and lush centerpieces, that were offset by more modern vases and silver accents.

Danny and I knew we wanted a wedding that was beautiful, fun, and most importantly, centered around our family and friends. We both come from strong Jewish families, but mine is secular, and Danny’s is Modern Orthodox. It was essential for us to incorporate both of our traditions into our ceremony and reception. It wasn’t always simple, but we were able to create the perfect blend. Our friends recommended us to our phenomenal rabbi who worked with us to create the perfect ceremony – a traditional Modern Orthodox ceremony with modern twists like having special women in our lives read blessings they created, and both of us exchanging rings. Two of the most meaningful parts of the ceremony to me was us honoring our grandmothers (who could not be at the wedding) – I was married in the same ring as my mother and grandmother, and Danny walked down the aisle to ‘Danny boy’ which his grandma always sang to him.

The biggest compliment we received from our wedding was that it felt very ‘us.’ That was so meaningful to us because we really wanted the wedding to feel personal to our family and friends. We wanted our reception to feel like one big party, and it definitely did! Our family and friends danced all night, and Bud Maltin Metropolitan Music played the perfect blend of dance music my friends love, my dad’s favorite Stevie Wonder songs, and pleased Danny’s friends with tons of Beatles hits. Pride Caterers suggested a bourbon bar, because we love bourbon, and we had tons of handmade signage because my mom owns a little stationary company, and paper details are a big deal to us!

We wouldn’t have been able to create our vision without the help of our amazing vendors. I was recommended to Roey Mizrahi of Roey Mizrahi Events by the sister-in-law of one of my best friends, and knew she was the right person to plan our wedding right away. She never missed a detail, listened to my endless questions and comments, came up with great ideas, and executed our day perfectly. We are so grateful for her, and I know our wedding would not have gone as smoothly without her! All of our vendors are not only talented, but truly cared about our wedding. From our incredible photographer Lindsay Madden sending me pictures of the perfect spots she found in Central Park for our first look, to Thea of Hushed Commotion working so hard to ensure I had the perfect veil, and Angi of Angelique Ink making edit after edit to our invitations, everyone truly made me feel like my wedding was incredibly special to them. We are so appreciative of their talent and hard work to create our wedding day!

Floral Filled Bridal Shower in Vancouver

When I was asked what I envisioned for my bridal shower many moons ago, the answer was flowers – a sea of them. Nothing says bridal quite like loads of pastel blooms and this Vancouver shower is out to prove just that. It’s a tea infused, flower filled party held at the Bride’s studio, Chandelier Wedding, along with the help of super crafty vendors like Written Word Calligraphy, Hello Sunshine Cake Studio and Nadia Hung. Click here for even more.

From the bride… What more fun than having loving and creative friends who are willing to style your bridal shower together? It is my childhood dream to be a creative business owner so hosting this bridal shower at my very own Chandelier Wedding’s Studio Monet was especially meaningful. Every girlfriend who attended this party has been my biggest cheerleader since the beginning of this new endeavor. And it is through this new journey, I developed a very special friendship with Nadia (from Nadia Hung Photography) and Karla (from Written Word Calligraphy). When I shared with the two lovelies my idea of hosting a floral workshop bridal shower, they said “Yes, let’s make it happen!” without second thoughts. It was so fun to have them involved in making this bridal shower so beautiful. It was also a wonderful opportunity to share my greatest passion with my close ones!

Nadia captured this pastel and airy soiree perfectly with tons of laughers and smiles. Karla created a set of soft peach colored stationery to match my pastel colored blooms and vintage teacups. I also have to extend a big thank you to Kristine of Hellosunshine Cake Studio for her gorgeous cake and J&S Catering for the delicate gourmet odeuvre. Every detail of this bridal shower is so perfect that it brings me to tears looking back at the pictures.

From Landon Jacob ProductionsRachael & Jeff were married Saturday, May 24th, 2014 in beautiful Bluffton, South Carolina at the United Methodist Church and reception at Colleton River. A destination wedding for most guests, it was a special Memorial Day Wedding Weekend that was very family oriented. The wedding was full of glamour and still had a bohemian flair. Rachael’s stunning wedding gown was very avante garde. Her shoes and jewelry were very fashion forward. The open back and slit on the side was a bit sexy, but the beautiful lace detail and sleeves kept this extremely tasteful. The bridesmaids were wore beautiful halos. Blondes did white blooms and pink, the brunettes had lighter pink and white. They were married in the church that they always wanted to be married in and were so happy it became available for the day of their wedding.

Immediately after they were pronounced husband and wife, the Voices of El Shaddai Gullah Choir was a surprise to everyone and there was not a dry eye in the house! Singing Oh Happy Day and a variety of other Gullah choir favorites, all the guests truly enjoyed this surprise. Colleton River is a very special place for Rachael and Jeff – they quite simply adore the natural beauty of Colleton River – so with the world class service and dining, it was a natural fit. Gold was reflected in all the aspects of the wedding design, from the linens to the chargers, to touches in the flowers.

Custom made bars with mirrors were built, gold gilded screens sat on the lawn with living room furniture for the cocktail hour. Family is very important the couple, a lot of children at the wedding, they had a kids room with kids buffet and Ninetendo Wii.

Escort card display was on the entryway chandelier, guests names dangled from beautiful ribbon. Head table was a dramatic display of stemmed glass with submerged florals. The chandiliers in the ballroom were covered with baby’s breath and gold seeded eucalyptus. A large “W” monogram was adorned in all white florals that hung above the fireplace.

Food for the wedding – Chef Robert Wysong did not disappoint with beautiful and delicious tasting food. Beautiful chilled seafood display, crab claws, marinated mussels, poached shrimp, buttler passed pot stickers, blue cheese stuffed mushrooms, mini lump crab cakes. Plated dinner was exquisite, choice entrée – local grouper, Meditterian roasted chicken, filet.
Tray ceilings and uplighting.

Rachael’s bouquet all white florals with a touch of pink, and included peonies, roses, lilac, freesia, hyacinth, ranunculus. Bridesmaids wore blush dress and carried mono botanical white flowers accented by gold seeded eucalyptus. Gold wedding cake by Custom Cakes, Minette Rushing. The cake wanted to reflect.
