Modern NYC Wedding at Tribeca Rooftop
I’m biased, but NYC is the best place to get married. Molly and Andrew’s wedding is the perfect example of a quintessential Manhattan affair that was designed to be modern with unexpected details. With Lemon & Lime Events on planning and design, we created hip, contemporary florals and decor to decorate their wedding at Tribeca Rooftop. As you scroll down to experience their event, you can see that every detail was carefully thought out to be crisp, speak to NYC, and in a tight black and white color palette.
Laser cut gold monograms greeted each guest as they sat down. The tables were draped with either stripes, sequins, or metallic gold linens. The head table, which we designed to be the showpiece in the room, held a 36′ long elevated arrangement of bright greens, ranunculus, hydrangea, and garden roses. A top tip on elevated arrangements: make them high enough for your guests to see under them and you’ll avoid the problem of not being able to talk across the table. Height is your friend, especially in rooms such as Tribeca Rooftop that have extremely high ceilings.

Livia and Rafael / Wedding at Ramscale
Two words: balloon room.
Three words: custom leather jackets.
And again: hanging greenery installation.
Those are my top three favorite things from this wedding I decorated at Ramscale Studio. Planning by Firefly Events and shot by Love & Co Photography, picking three favorites was tough. If I were to pick a few more (ok, you twisted my arm), they would be the bride’s insanely amazing dress, the coolness factor of this entire event, the view from the rooftop ceremony, the light curtain behind the bar, and the gold foiled ’till death do us part cocktail napkins.
Yep, pretty much everything.
This year has held some of the most aesthetically varied weddings that I’ve been given the chance to decorate. Each having it’s own bit of unconventionality, my design muscles have grown with every one. Take for example this wedding’s hanging greenery installation. When I was at Brimfield earlier this year, I happened upon a pile of what looked like giant iron baskets. I thought that turned upside down they would make the perfect mechanic for a hanging installation covered in greenery. I bought one for $10.
That was the best $10 I’ve ever spent on a vintage piece at a flea market. Turns out that the giant iron basket was actually those cages that are put over lights in gymnasiums. I’m sure you remember them from high school. It’s creative, unusual, and smart applications of everyday items that create interesting installations for your guests to experience at your wedding.
This is the hanging install I mentioned above. Constructed on a vintage light cover from an old gymnasium. That light cover used to watch sweaty high school kids try and dunk. Now a bride and groom danced underneath it with their closest family and friends. Don’t lose it, reuse it.
(if you know you says that last line, I give you a fist pump in toddler parent solidarity.)
Nimi and Rush’s wedding at Parrish Art Museum
Nimi and Rush’s wedding at Parrish Art Museum was one of my biggest wedding to date. With almost 300 guests and an 8′ x 8′ hanging floral installation over the table, we brought over 2000 blooms, 100 lanterns, 75 terrariums, 150 succulents, and 200 airplants out to the Hamptons to create a modern, cohesive wedding under the planning direction of Polka Dot Events.
This was also my first time at Parrish Art Museum. Woah. This place is the coolest. Everywhere you turn the architecture blends into the surrounding fields and creates bold, negative space in the neatest shapes.
This wedding, with Amber Gress‘s incredible photographs, is featured in the current issue of The Knot New York.
