I had been dogging Casey for sometime to submit a damn wedding to me already!! Finally, I was greeted in my inbox with a submission from Casey and oh how funny can life be... Not only did I love the super Manhattan featured wedding, but the reception took place at.... PUBLIC! Now allow me a small digression for a moment. Hubby & I did finally have our VIP experience at PUBLIC that we had won. With not the slightest bit of embellishment, it was by far one of the nights of our lives. It was....perfection. From Chef Brad, to various staff members there (PS-our waitress was amazing, she really really needs to write a food blog, like now!), to the mega delicious food, to all the wonderful things we got to experience while there, it was beyond a home run. When I saw Casey's submission of a wedding at PUBLIC all those lovely feelings came floating back. Having a close connection with PUBLIC, I thought it would be a rare great opportunity to actually hear a bit from the vendor side of things too. I reached out to the fine ladies and asked for a bit of commentary from their side as well, and they were all to happy to volley up some great stuff about Randi Anderson & Karlo Pastrovic's wedding! So now that I have written a mega intro, allow me to STFU and let you guys get to strolling through this absolutely lovely New York City wedding!!
This sweet mid-fall wedding features nature's favorite color palette strong with oranges, reds & touches of deep purples. The couple, Melissa Thomason & Phillip Chambless, actually found the charming Clifton Inn the very weekend that they got engaged! For the feel of the wedding, the couple hoped for a classic wedding with outdoor touches, featuring a tree side coffee station, lawn games & even a Bourbon Bar! As a final touch, the couple invited guests to help them celebrate in their big moment by joining in on a late night sparkler send off!
The hubby & I are headed back up to Vermont this weekend to do some leaf peepin! The trip is 2 parts pleasure, one part husband with itchy feet, haha. Personally I find fall weddings lovely. There is such a wonderful warm color palette to work with & nature provides some pretty amazing back drops all on its own. For your eye candy, I have put together a little fall wedding inspiration. As we will be off running through the trees this weekend, we'll be a bit quiet here this weekend, so Happy Friday all & see your bright and shiny Monday morning!
