Darn near begged Jacques Mateos to share this wedding with you all I have spent some time in France and I promise it never gets old, especially with such an amazing venue like Chateau LaDurantie. Happy Monday Hot Pink Lovelies.
Alessandra and Bryant had a traditional Catholic ceremony in one of New York’s grandest churches: the newly restored St. Patrick’s, a breathtaking Neo-Gothic cathedral in the center of Manhattan. “It was so beautiful and grand, it didn’t need any extra decor,” Alessandra says. She wore a bouquet of cascading white orchids that included gold leaf detailing. The two filled their ceremony with Filipino traditions, including having candle, cord, and veil sponsors. Thank you to Photo Pink for sharing this amazing GLAM wedding with our readers.
So I am not a big fan of celeb weddings and I never feature them but I really LOVED the very cool dress that Piper Perabo wore at her New York Wedding this weekend. Even though it was Michael Kors, I feel like it was very under stated and went well with the New Orleans theme.
If a modern day Ballerina Princess went mad and found her Prince…this is what it would look like. I just fell in LOVE with this session from KrisD Mauga there is something so moving from these images. Happy Monday and Enjoy!
New York, how I love thee. Let me count the ways. I have always loved Central Park but YungenYang Photography really shows not only the couple’s beauty but New York’s as well, in this day after session.
It was a complete surprise to me when my boyfriend of a year, proposed to me in the middle of a Perfect Wedding Guide show that we were both working. Below is the video from the very talented Jeffrey Stoner Video of how it all went down. Honestly, I just wish someone would of told me to at least brush my hair…just sayin.
Sunlit kisses and deep purple details make this wedding stand out in the crowd. Not only is the inside of the Museum of Nature breathtaking, the surrounding grounds make our heart skip a beat as well. The details that Barbara Ann Studios captured during this wedding are stunning but it’s the tender moments between the bride and her groom that really made us do a double (and triple) take!

Had the pleasure of staying at the Casa Monica Hotel last week and it was really beautiful. We stayed for a few nights and had a visit with Noel Day, who is the Catering Sales Manager for the Hotel. Below are some on my personal pics as well as ideas and pricing.

Outside the ballrooms was this really cool vintage car.
One of the ballrooms I really love the chandelier.
I thought this was really cool. Housekeeping left us a handwritten note under the door on our last night. Here is the info on the Ballrooms: Casa Monica Hotel
This is their outdoor space for ceremony and receptions I love the black chandeliers.
They also are running this really cool special that if you book a wedding before December of this year you get a free honeymoon at any of their 10 locations nationwide. They call it “Honeymoon on Us”.
All in all, I like the venue and the staff is very friendly and helpful. If I had to say anything negative I would say the valet parking is pretty expensive so I would be concerned about that extra cost during my event. The food was amazing. We ate at the restaurant and had room service. The customer service of the staff was top notch.
