We are completely smitten with the romantic and airy feel of Jae and Robert’s wedding at The Highlands Country Club in Garrison, NY. After a gorgeous ceremony under a to-die-for floral arch, Ivie Joy Floral Arts & Events brought the feeling of a garden indoors for the reception with natural and organic arrangements of anemones, ranunculus, garden rose, dahlia, and hydrangea, in beautiful blush and white tones. Along with white chiavari chairs, the light tones were a perfect match for sleek wooden tables in the gorgeous dining room of The Highlands. Sweet details such as doughnut cufflinks (both are dessert lovers!) and a custom gown from Mika Inatome made Jae and Robert’s wedding uniquely personal to them, and the entire day is beautifully captured by Brklyn View Photography!
From the bride:
Wedding planning with Robert was easy, mainly because he’s so patient and reasonable! More than anything, we wanted our guests to feel the love and fun that is shared between us. We incorporated little details of the both of us that made us fall in love with each other, whether that was in our menu selections, signature cocktail, dessert, or décor. The weather was sunny and perfect for our outdoor ceremony on the garden. It was such a fun, happy day, filled with so much love.
On the day of our wedding, my veil had a huge tear across the center! Luckily, Jainé’s second photographer came to the rescue and did a quick sew. Being a perfectionist in planning and needing things going a certain way, I was beginning to stress out but once my mom and sister helped me into my dress, everything started to come together. They brought me down to the verandah to do my first look with my dad and the bridal party. It was such a special moment doing the first look with my father – definitely one that we’ll never forget! Robert did not want to do the first look or see me at any point before our ceremony. He wanted to have that special moment of seeing his bride for the first time as I walked down the aisle. Both of my parents walked me down the aisle and as I turned the corner and saw Robert, nothing else in that moment mattered. A rainstorm could’ve swept in and we wouldn’t have cared at all. We locked eyes with each other and with pure excitement, I smiled and mouthed “Hiiiii” to Robert! I get all giddy just thinking about it all over again!
Our wedding day truly felt like a dream and every time we think back on it or look at our wedding photos, we can’t help but smile and feel the emotions all over again!
