All puns intended on this one. I just couldn’t help myself, the use of baby’s breath in this February wedding created an unbelievable atmosphere – one that even left me gasping for air. Ok enough with the jokes, lets get to the details.
Sarah and Brian’s wedding was such a fun way to start off the year. It was held at one of our very favorite venue’s The Franklin Plaza Ballroom. With a list of All-Star vendors, many of which I have not had the chance to work with before:
Katie O • Wedding & Events kept everyone flawlessly on task, Julia Zave Lifestyles photography captured every moment and Grand Central Station got the party started! Not to mention the gorgeous gold chiavari chairs and white HOT lounge furniture provided by Total Events. Sounds like the perfect ingredients for an amazing evening right? You got it!
This event was a year in the making with Brian’s radio segment The Knot Nazi on Fly 92.3 which followed the adventures and challenges of planning a wedding. With weekly check-ins on their progress from his fiancé Sarah – I have to say this couple is very brave for letting the whole world tune in!
Like most brides Sarah only wanted to use flowers if she could use a huge amount of them, so when she came to me with the idea of using baby’s breath only I wasn’t sure a flower, traditionally used as a filler, could hold its own and create the look she was imagining. But once we started creating these baby’s breath bushes, (large ones featured on the head tuscan table & smaller versions for the guest tables) I quickly realized that even having been in the business 20 years, there is always something new to learn. The way the centerpieces filled the room was better than I had expected for sure!
The wedding ceremony was also held at The Franklin Plaza, complete with candle lit aisle and our traditional Chuppah. The Chuppah was draped with sheer fabric and crystals and featured subtle hints of the signature baby’s breath.

Mini wreaths made of baby’s breath served a dual purpose: first flanking the chair’s along the ceremony aisle and then every other chair on the head table. It’s a great way to re-use elements from the ceremony,
at the reception in a different way!

We’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with so many talented people on this grand celebration, from the couple themselves to every last vendor! While I know this is image overload I had a hard time narrowing it down to just a few great moments from this night.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a special tribute to my mom and all other mom’s that deserve more than just one day of recognition for all that they do!
