Anthony and Rusty personify NYC chic. Their love of urban style, handsome, masculine details and industrial design set the tone for a wedding celebration we will never forget.
The setting: vintage Brooklyn, NYC. The color palette: French Greige. The vibe: Broadway musical energy and fun meets wedding love romance.
The Broadway nods and details were perhaps our favorite element of personal groom style. The Playbill wedding program design perfectly presents the witty humor and good times about to unfold.
Another favorite detail - the iconic typefaces and decals used to set the tone on doors to welcome guests, and throughout the venue on bar mirrors and wall surfaces to add cheeky humor.
Cool, masculine chic details - from the exterior to the interior were styled to create a sensational sensory experience for guests throughout the wedding...just like a Broadway play.
I mean...handsome x two x infinity.
Lounge love, creating intimate seating areas in cozy corners near the dancefloor during the reception.
Now this is industrial meets romance decor at it's best. Our Debi Lilly Design collection mixed with metallics and grey candles in varied heights ontop french grey flax runners.
Signature cocktails Mad Men style...from martinis to champagne to whiskey. Don't forget to style each drink up with it's own fresh garnish for a tasty touch.
These are the mac daddy of all fabulous wedding favors. The groom's favorite cocktail - turned darling 3D paper labels, hand drawn by dear friend Darcy Miller. Goals...just goals.
Stylist secret: pre set tasting boards on guest dining tables for beautiful nibbles that add style and flavor as guests enter the dining room. Slates with charcuterie, marcona almonds, fruit, crackers and toasts, cheese and more are almost too pretty to eat.
The icing on the cocktail party cake? Ice bowls of russian caviar, served with tiny mother of pearl caviar spoons, bien sur. Make sure to place the ice bowls in a deep bowl to hold the water, as the ice begins to melt at the table.
Flower girl fairy perfection.
The wedding ceremony backdrop created a stunning focal point with handcut silver palm leaves suspended in modern style.
Two chocolate loving grooms need two gilded Sylvia Weinstock cakes, and all the little bity bites that make a chocolate bar fantasty come to life.
Perhaps the piece de resistance, friends and dancers from New York's legendary Flaming Saddles Saloon. I fell in love with them at the wedding - and then again months later inside their epic party bar on 9th Avenue. You must go visit!
Anthony, Martha, and Rusty strike a pose and a toast to love.
Dozens upon dozens of romantic references to Broadway painted both the wedding's and the groom's personality. Rent lyrics, among other Broadway musical favorites, shared both words of love, musical dreams, love, laughter and happily ever after. It's all in the details.
Make sure to watch Anthony and Rusty's epic wedding video...it's just...the best.
