Escort Card Display

Justin Marantz just sent me this amazing photograph he took of an escort card display from a recent wedding. Stunning floral design by KD+J Botanica. The escort card holders were created in acrylic and looked chic against an all white runner table with flowing white fabric in the background.

We used the same acrylic for the passed food displays. Jordan Caterers is to thank for this amazing looking food. The burgers, fries and petite milk shakes were a favorite!

Acrylic can be a great design medium. Thanks for the photographs Justin!!

Tented Weddings - Part One

The idea of designing a structure from the ground up is an amazing challenge and opportunity. So often in magazines we get to see the finished product but not the "behind the scenes" into what it really takes to get to the magazine ready stage.

For the last wedding we produced I took a lot of photo's of the installation process.
This particular field was not level so the installation of the tent began two weeks prior to the wedding day, required a structural engineer and in some areas was raised 5 feet off the ground. In total there was 15,000 square feet of tenting provided by Stamford Tents.

Once The Tents were up and secure.... load -in began

Waterfalls in New York City

From late June to mid October 2008, a major new work of temporary public art will be on display in New York City. The project consists of four man-made waterfalls installed at sites along the shores of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island. The 90 to 120-foot tall installations will operate seven days a week, and will be lit after sunset, adding a striking element to New York City's iconic skyline.

What is the Waterfalls Tour of New York City?
New York Water Taxi will be running a special edition of our 1 Hour Harbor Tour designed for optimal viewing of these magnificent works of art. Departing hourly from South Street Seaport's Pier 17, sights on the tour will include:
- All four of The New York City Waterfalls
- The Statue of Liberty
- The Brooklyn Bridge
- Governor's Island
- the Manhattan Skyline

What should the Flower Girl Carry?

Look at these cute ideas for flower girl baskets.... The bottom two photographs [pictured above ] I have saved in my " cute files" and don't have the source.... if you are out there let me know! The top one is from a past wedding- guess where we bought the baskets ?......Christmas Tree Shops!

You can find all kinds of great containers out there for your little beauties to carry. Sometimes a relative has an old handbag that can be re-styled , try handmade wooden boxes with handles , or silk bags that are made of the same fabric as the bridesmaid dresses many ideas.

Don't want to get crafty or sew.. Midori makes it easy with these great bags!

This one is from Miss Priss Style.

Whatever you choose just make sure its lightweight and easy to carry. A happy flower girl is VERY important.
