Event Spotlight: A Jewel-Toned Wedding

While we’re wishing for warmer temps, let’s flash back to this lovely spring wedding at Weylin in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The happy couple walked down the aisle, which was flanked by floating orchids and candles, to a stunning, floral-covered chuppah. The bride and groom exchanged vows in front of more than 200 family and friends before the room was transformed for a night of glitz and glamour. The candlelit tables with jewel-toned flower arrangements and gold accents were the perfect complement to the bank-turned-event space’s gilded domes and intricate mosaics. The high-energy crowd hit the dance floor to the tunes of The Hudson Project Band and ended the evening with one of the couple’s favorite desserts, Momofuku’s famous funfetti cake.

Engage!17 Recap

Last month, Lindsay was honored to share her big ideas on the Engage!17 stage at Nizuc Resort and Spa in Cancun, Mexico.  Amongst a crowd of 350 luxury wedding industry peers, Lindsay spoke candidly about her personal strategies for combatting the Impostor Syndrome. She encouraged attendees to own their successes by finding ways to objectively evaluate their accomplishments, eliminating the reliance on luck to explain good (or bad) fortune and blocking out the noise to focus on personal growth and strengths. Taking a cue from Eleanor Roosevelt, Lindsay left guests with the message that “no one can make you feel inferior without your consent” — a personal mantra and her daily affirmation.

Beautiful Bridal Bouquets

As the year comes to a close, we chose just a few of the bridal bouquets we loved from our 2017 weddings. These brides trusted us to bring their creative and colorful visions to life and add the finishing flourish to their “I do’s.” One bride kept it sweet and simple with peach phalaenopsis orchids in a mono-botanic arrangement, while another picked calla lilies mixed with classic red roses to set the tone for elegant evening nuptials. Some of the newlyweds opted for unstructured shapes and lush greenery to accent their whimsical, romantic celebrations. Each bouquet was so special and personal, and it was truly a joy to see these lovely ladies carry our blooms down the aisle!

Pixeled Paperie

After years of Bar and Bat Mitzvah planning and design, Lindsay finally got to be the hostess with the mostess and create the perfect party for her son Charlie.  Like we do for all of our clients, Lindsay and our graphic designers created a paper suite that was modern and fun, while still reverent to the importance of the day. These 3-ply beauties featured double foil stamping, flat printing, a funky pixel pattern liner and wallpaper back.

Event Spotlight: A Moody Spring Wedding

This early spring wedding at The Foundry had a warm and sultry vibe, brimming with color, texture and depth. Our creative bride was inspired by high contrast patterns, painted floral motifs and a penchant for “undone luxury.” We approached the decor with some slightly uncharacteristic looseness that yielded a design that was polished, but not fussy.  We used the natural beauty of the venue as a canvas to maximize the overgrown green garden look, offering a foil to the full flowers and sleek black accents. Oh, and also, it was a pretty great party!

Marry at The Mulia

Every once in a blue moon, I am honored with an epic "work perk." Not just your run-of-the-mill luncheon invite or branded tote bag, but a truly special experience.  Last month was one of those times, and let me tell you... it was the work perk to end all work perks. The Mulia Bali Resort, in conjunction with Destination EnSite, hosted me and some other esteemed event colleagues from around the world for a once-in-a-lifetime week experiencing the beauty, tranquility and opulence of this stunning resort and of magical Bali.  To say I'm a lucky lady barely scratches the surface. 

A glimpse at the sights of The Mulia from beautiful landscapes and views to spectacular flowers and decor.

We began the week with a few days to get settled and explore the resort... from the most intense station-style meals in The Cafe to workouts with in-house trainers in the Fitness Center and strolls along the soft-sand beach to cocktails on the SkyBar, getting settled was a joyous task to behold.

Once the rest of our group of planners and designers arrived at The Mulia, the true indulgence began. Multi-course breakfasts, lunches and dinners featuring unique and gracious service (you have never seen tea poured quite like this!) and cuisine from every part of the world, one dish more exceptional than the next.  Custom china, linens, napkins, serviceware and glassware like you have never seen... I was enchanted not just with every meal, but with the way in which each meal was presented to me as if I were the resort's most special guest.  There is no question in my mind that every guest at The Mulia gets this royal treatment, but I always felt like the chosen one.  Did I already mention that every staff member on the property addressed me by name at all times of the day, in every location, even after I had changed my outfit and hair? For real.  Every time.  

Gorgeous plates, chocolate and fruit artistry and clever and creative displays.

Bali is such a unique and special place and The Mulia did the most magnificent job of both bringing the culture of Bali to us as well as escorting us into the heart of Balinese culture.  Our first official program began with a traditional Kecak Fire Dance in which exquisitely costumed performers danced to music created by a chorus of men chanting. We were able to take an outing into the Sacred Monkey Forest and to see the breathtaking terraced rice paddies for which Bali is famous.  Prior to our final dinner, The Mulia created an authentic Balinese wedding ritual show with a bride and groom dressed to the nines and serenaded by two sets of stunning dancers, performing agin to the music of a chanting choir and child drummers.  The only female high priestess in Bali showered each of us with blessings and offered a powerful cleansing ritual.

Traveling to Ubud

The Wedding Show... and me learning a few moves!

This was more than a vacation and certainly more than a work trip.  More than a luxurious resort and more than a beautiful beach.  This was an experience that truly touched me and that will stay with me for all of my days.  I live in anticipation of my next opportunity to travel to Bali and to visit the Mulia... and I hope to have the chance to bring you with me!

Thank you to Brian Leahy Photography for these beautiful images and to event hosts The Mulia Bali, Destination EnSite, Jackson Durham Events and Inside Weddings for having me as your guest.
