Brooklyn Botanic Garden // Lara + A.J.

Lara + A.J.’s November wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Palm House was the epitome of autumn at its finest. The leaves on the trees had just started to turn. Remnants of the flowers were showing their true fall colors. Set amongst a stunning collection of flora and fauna in the middle of charming Brooklyn, it was full of romance.

A.J.’s blue velvet Hugo Boss suit was made complete with badass cufflinks of Prince and Michael Jackson’s portraits. Lara’s Sarah Seven Worthington wedding gown flowed so elegantly in the breeze. Floral arrangements by Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design and wedding coordination by Field & Feather truly made everything look top notch. It is no wonder why The Black Tie Bride featured their fantastic Brooklyn wedding day!

Firehouse Chicago Wedding // Andrea + Yusuf

Andrea and Yusuf’s Firehouse Chicago wedding hooked me from the moment I walked on site. They stayed true to themselves and how they wanted their wedding to unfold — it was authentic, full of sheer joy, and pure love that could be felt by all in the room. I mean, who doesn’t want to have their first dance be to Method Man’s “All I Need”?

A Practical Wedding has also featured this wedding on their site. Click here to read Drea + Yusuf’s full story on how they planned for and budgeted their wedding day.

Katie + Kevin

When a wedding day unfolds perfectly in every way, shape, and form between two super amazing humans that must have been brought to this planet by a Luckdragon, you pinch yourself pretty hard. Katie and Kevin are the said humans in this story. Their genuine love for one another and everyone in their lives is so apparent — it is radiant. I could gush about these two all day. Without further ado, I present to you their wedding day with the in/famous Dirty Dancing dance as their first with a fully successful lift. Patrick Swayze would have been proud of ya, Kev.

The Pygmalion Festival 2015

On Sunday evening, early Monday morning, we wrapped our eleventh year of The Pygmalion Festival. I’m still at a loss for words for just how I feel about owning and running something that is now bigger than us. So, I’ll just leave what I wrote the final evening of Pygmalion below.
//
No kinder words have been said to me than on the final day of ‪Pygmalion‬. As the friends we have made, both near and far, come to take in the festivities, I am reminded of how lucky I am/we are to have all of you and all of this in our lives. Sometimes, I feel like we can’t possibly be deserving of such love. And sometimes I feel as if I could just burst at the seams from all of the support. It is truly remarkable to make it to the last day of something so fantastically epic and dream-like. It feels like we are floating in space. Again, I don’t know how to thank everyone who has been there from Pygmalion year 1, day 1 to year 11, day 5. You all hold a special place in our hearts. ‪The Made Fest has also brought such tremendous relationships to the table for me, too. From our family to yours, eternally grateful for giving us the opportunity to get to do what we do, the Fein-Bursoni’s thank you.
