Let it snow
New York is one of those destinations that I’ve always dreamt of planning a wedding. I love the fact that it can offer so many venues for so many different tastes. Whether you want grand, industrial or botanical style there really is something for everyone. At the end of 2018 we got an amazing opportunity to put together an elopement editorial shoot in New York and I hope you’ll agree that it brings out the potential for a New York destination wedding.
We based ourselves at the ‘Boro Hotel’ where we got the chance to turn the industrial wedding space into a romantic and elegant space with feminine touches for our same-sex couple. The views from this room in the hotel located on Long Island provides an amazing panorama of the New York skyline however for us it didn’t last too long because instead we got to experience the first snow day of the year.
We wanted to bring a feeling of warmth & Hygge into this room through the use of stunning florals and decoration. We focussed our colour palette on soft pinks, purples and greys. We decorated the table with a grey linen tablecloth, black cutlery, taper candles, floral patterned chargers and the show stopper flower cloud above the top table. This really added an element of understated luxury.
A buttercream icing cake was created for us, incorporating delicately placed edible flowers. We focussed on minimalistic stylish stationery and added a simple embossed design to add some texture. A seating plan was made using biscuits – ‘seating for eating’ which included the guest name and table number, while also doubling up as guest favours. Our beautiful ladies wore stunning gowns by the talented Marina Semone complimented by their golden hair pieces and jewellery.
We love to celebrate love at Wonderlust Events and pride ourselves on being inclusive wedding planners. Nothing makes us happier than creating a beautiful destination wedding for our wonderful couples.
