Lisa and Freddie

Today’s wedding is full to the brim with joy! I love how happy our couple Lisa and Freddie are and how much it shines through the photographs! Urban Chic is the vibe Lisa and Freddie wanted for their New York wedding so the old oak trees to the urban buildings of New York, this is the wedding of Lisa and Freddie!

Lisa told us the story of how she and Freddie met “Think of Jim and Pam from “The Office”. Romance in the workplace. When I first started, we both were dating someone else seriously. Then a year later, my relationship didn’t work out and he was dealing with a long distance relationship that didn’t quite work out. After a fun night of the company holiday party (he just couldn’t resist!), he asked me out the next day. He wined and dined me over fried chicken, Pinkberry frozen yogurt, and Shrek 2.”

By luck or fate, Lisa and her bridesmaids spent the night before the wedding at ready at Hotel Gansevoort. The hotel was unable to provide Lisa with her originally booked suite and instead provided connecting rooms – which worked out wonderfully when Freddie arrived. The bride and groom got ready in rooms side by side!

Lisa and Freddie chose oranges and greys as their wedding colour palette. Lisa was fixated on squares and mono-chromatics and Lucy Wu Floral Design kept the colours neutral with pops of orange.

Ebony created the wedding stationery around a stars, moon and sun theme with a grey, silver ad ivory as the colour palette. An extra special surprise for the guests was a large moon surrounded by stars on a midnight background made by Andrew. Ebony always wanted her photo taken on the moon like her great grandmother.

Ebony wore a gown from Mr K. She handmade her veil, transforming a 1920’s Juliet cap into a traditional flapper veil. Ebony also made her bouquet- in amongst handmade satin roses, she placed portraits of her parents, Andrew’s parents and Ebony’s grandparents to honour the special people in their lives.

Claire, a graphic designer, created all off the stationery. She designed the invitations, seating plan, ceremony booklets and place cards. Claire used the theme of animal silhouettes to compliment the zoo location and act as table “numbers” Favors doubled as place cards and were a nod to Tim’s love of gardening- guests received seed packets of basil, green pea or sweet peas.

Claire and Tim opted for a relaxed reception- there was no formal entrance and the speeches were kept short and heartfelt- perfect for the party atmosphere they wanted to create.

Claire’s aunt made a cumquat cake for the bride and groom using a Maggie Beer recipe. The cake toppers were sewn from felt by Claire’s sister in law.

Thank you Claire and Tim for sharing your wedding day with us, have a wonderful life together! Thank you also to the crew at You Can’t Be Serious for letting us share the beautiful photos!
