Dinner at The Park

Below are some photos I took with my iPhone for a wedding that we did at The Park Restaurant in Chelsea. It was a rainy spring day but we were still able to have that "alfresco feel" thanks to The Park's gorgeous glass enclosed garden.

This was a true budget wedding and in an effort to keep event design costs down we did the flowers ourselves. We used the standard white cotton tablecloths but with some inexpensive, but stunning plates and glasses from Party Rental we were able to really transform the table... or at least I think so!  

Professional Pics from Missy Lamb's Studio are coming soon!

Real Wedding - Morgan & Josh Part II

Apologies for the delay! We have been busy bees at CKE working on some of our upcoming weddings! Yay!

Here is some more fabulous eye candy from Morgan and Josh's ultra glamorous affair courtesy of Meredith and Michael at Christian Oth!

Hard to see in this picture but Todd from VSF, who did all of the gorgeous flowers, also tied on a "Mr." and "Mrs." signs to the back of the chairs along with some stunning garland.

To Top It All Off

While we love a traditional veil for walking down the aisle, they can literally be a bit of a drag during the reception. Why not switch out your veil for a gorgeous hair piece? It's a perfect opportunity to show off your style and add a bit of glamour to your already fabulous dress!

Here are a few of our favs:

The Sienna from Portland based designer Austie. Great price and she will make it for you in any color you choose!

Leah C. Couture Millinery makes us drool every time. First is style B17 and below is "Exotic Nagorie"

Los Angeles design duo Jen and Jamie of have fabulous and over the top hair pieces for every budget.

The style above are no. 89 and "Shazam!"

Real Wedding - Morgan & Josh Part I

Wow! Baby, it's cold outside. Just when we thought it was safe to hope for spring, Mother Nature hits us with a snow storm of epic proportions. Where was this snow during the holiday season may I ask? I could be upset but at least it's pretty and at least I remembered to wear my wellies today!

Anyway... in the spirit of winter, we bring you Morgan and Josh's absolutely STUNNING winter wedding. It was held this past January in Manhattan. Morgan is from the West Coast and Josh is from the South but they met and fell in love in NYC. Morgan is an event planner herself so she was an absolute dream to work with and had the most beautiful vision for her wedding (more on that in the next posts.) Grab a cup of hot coco, snuggle up and enjoy this gorgeous wedding. All photos are from the lovely and talented Meredith and Michael at Christian Oth Studios.

Great Colors!

I just LOVE these colors together. I found this on the absolutely delightful website Once Wed. Such a great non-floral design. I think I may use this for my cinco de mayo party. (That I just decided to host now.... hey... who doesn't love a margarita!)

Definitely check out Once Wed, not only is it a place to buy a previously worn dress or sell your dress, its also full of gorgeous design inspiration!
