First & foremost, I have serious case of floral envy going with this wedding, I mean, coooome on! I love the idea of bridesmaid dresses being mix matched in the first place, toss in mix matched succulent filled bouquets & I am going to stop dead in my tracks! I am dripping with envy kids! I loooove these bouquets! The Cutting Garden at Flora Grubb Gardens, your a quick new fave of mine, come hell or high water, we are some how doing something together down the road, but I digress! This wedding is adorable on so many levels from the bridal booties (which I love) to the ceremony location. The simplicity of the venue, coupled with the few perfectly hung light strands, this day time wedding is elevated to a level that even the most sophisticated of hipsters will find themselves swooning over...despite themselves! Enjoy this gorgeous wedding and be sure to leave this couple some love!

For the record, I loooove New Orleans. I started visiting New Orleans Bi-Yearly starting around 2004 and fell head over heels for the mystical city. The city I know is not the one filled of drunken people looking to shuck beads at willing flashers while downing every alcoholic beverage known to man. I know a city that is filled with old American history, influenced by both the Brits & the French complete with a deep cultural mix of samplings from around the world. The food is outstanding: I genuinely suggest you don't eat for days before hand, no joke! The joie de vivre & old world society run deeps & you find yourself in an other worldly place that is captivating no matter how many times you return.

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!!
Heading down south, we are treated to the vintage feel wedding of Kelly Foster & Gene Harley. This wedding was truly a family affair with various family members greatly helping out our bride with everything from sourcing (over 3 states!) mix matched china, bottles, & various knickknacks to a hand made scrapbook and my personal favorite, a stunning brooch bouquet made by Kelly's cousin, which by the way, was her first time making one! Kelly offers some wonderful commentary throughout regarding her wedding & a few words of advice for future brides to be!
