Fall Wedding in Manhattan Park

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this gorgeous Autumn Manhattan Park wedding, which took place in the ever-glamorous New York City. Kali and Brendan’s big day incorporated classic formal attire, vibrant red hues, and priceless views of the Hudson river.

Autumn starts in less than a month, and we couldn’t be more excited to share some Fall inspiration with you all. We are loving Kali’s bold, red lip color that perfectly matches her flower bouquet and elegant wedding decorations. Her vintage veil pays tribute to the glamorous 1940s era, and pairs so nicely with her cap-sleeve wedding dress.

The moody clouds, and lush Linden trees, only add to the picturesque atmosphere of this serene wedding venue. To top it all off, the thirties stone structure adds the perfect amount of charm for some stunning wedding photography. This rustic cafe was the perfect place to hold their wedding reception.

Real Wedding: Alpa & Kavit

This week’s Real Wedding features college sweethearts Alpa & Kavit and their stunning Chicago celebration.

After dating for a few years Kavit surprised Alpa with a romantic rose petal and candle proposal at her apartment in Pennsylvania. Once it came time to plan the wedding the couple decided they wanted to have a fairly traditional wedding to honor their parents, but put a personal spin on it.

Their venue, The Stonegate in Chicago, IL was transformed with deep purples, gold, and pops of maroon and red to create a utterly romantic setting, featuring traditional Indian colors.

Photographer: Suzy Brown capture their breathtaking day of events. Take a peek!

Fun Fact: Each tier of their cake was decorated with memorable words – ranging from their favorite restaurant to the place they met, and everything in between.

How-To: Gift Tags and Ribbon DIY

Whether you’re looking to add airs and graces to your wedding stationery suite or more of a handcrafted shabby chic feel, our circle gift tags and ribbon will tickle you and your wedding guests pink. Here are two easy ways to add simple embellishments that add to your love story.

DIY #1: Circle Gift Tag, Ribbon & Envelopments©

For this DIY, you will need thick ribbon, an envelopment and a circle gift tag. Style tip: Your circle gift tag selection will depend on where it’s being used. Here it is closing up your wedding stationery suite. In other places, you may choose a simple monogram for the gift tag.

DIY Ribbon Invitation Gift Tag

Get the Look:

  1. After you’ve enclosed all the wedding invite essentials within the envelopment, cut a long piece of ribbon.
  2. Wrap the ribbon around the envelopment and place the circle gift tag over the ribbon and the envelopment to seal it. Ta da!

DIY #2: Gift Tags, Ribbon & Favor Boxes

For this DIY, you can choose thick or thin ribbon or both. The world is your oyster! You’ll also need favor boxes and gift tag stickers.

Get the Look:

1. After you have enclosed your delightful favor within the box, cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the box. The stylish possiblities here are endless: you can double wrap, use two different ribbon colors and different sizes as well.

2. You can choose to tie the ribbon in an elegant bow, or add a gift tag—a circle or square will both do nicely—to seal the deal. Most importantly, remember that good things come in small packages.
