Classic New York Wedding

The first thing I thought when I first looked through these beautiful photos was that the gorgeous bride is a dead ringer for one of my faves, Blake Lively. Then I laid eyes on the dapper groom, the incredibly large but nevertheless stunning bridal party and of course those beautiful bouquets, and I was head over heels in love with the classic simplicity of this entire celebration. Plus, when a bride wears a Vera Wang gown it's pretty much a done deal that everything else about the wedding will be nothing short of timeless. A huge thank you to both Christina Szczupak and Jacquelyn Poussot who captured Christin and Rob's big day so perfectly; I'm so thrilled to have you talented ladies over here on the blog today. Happy Tuesday, blogettes! 


{From the bride, Christin} Rob and I met in highschool through a mutual friend. We started dating, went to prom together and fell in love. We ended our relationship when I moved to South Carolina for college. Four years later, we were still in touch and Rob ended up coming over to my parent's house for a family party. It was as if our relationship had never ended and we haven't been apart since. On October 10th, 2010 we walked now the aisle and now I am happily married to my best friend. However, I would say the biggest obstacle while wedding planning is staying on budget. It was very challenging to finalize a guest list, find the perfect dress, hire a rocking band and choose a delicious cake without breaking the bank. It took a lot of research but in the end we were able to find great vendors at great prices.

If you have the time, try to do your favours yourself - it will save you lots of money and we had fun doing it! Do research before you go dress shopping. I live close to New York City and was able to find my designer dress at a sample sale. Don't go crazy with flower arrangements. We had small bouquets on each table with lots of candles. It was very romantic and elegant but also inexpensive. Don't forget to get a facial a week before your wedding and you can't go wrong with a good spray tan (Brazil Bronze in Soho is the best) and lastly, relax and enjoy the process. It goes by so quickly! One of our favorite parts of our wedding day was the after party. We were excited to still have more time celebrating with our family and friends. One of our good friend is a DJ who helped us throw an awesome dance party that lasted all night long.
