Those of you who follow FYB regularly already know my husband and I originally wanted to get married on New Years Eve. We opted for December 29th instead. So I have a soft spot for all December weddings, and especially New Years Eve ones.
As you will see from the images below shot by Logan Walker Photography, Hilary and Ron’s NYE nuptials at Stein Eriksen Lodge were elegantly perfect indeed. They even had a pop in visit by late-night television host Conan O’Brien, who just happened to be vacationing at the Lodge as well.
From the bride:
Our wedding had the same look and feel as our Manhattan apartment. It was a perfect blend of our two styles rustic with modern elegance. We wanted a rustic winter wonderland that still felt like a new year’s party. Lots of candles and earth tones and silver accents. The room at the Stein Eriksen is so beautiful we wanted to accent it while not taking away from it. We used pinecones, candles, and birch to do this. The moment I knew we were doing a winter wedding I knew I wanted birch and candles.
There is nothing more romantic to us. Where did you get the inspiration for your color palette and design? The theme throughout our wedding was antlers and pinecones. The invitations, table card holders, menus, ceremony programs, signage, aisle runner, cupcakes, and table number holders all had antlers or a the antler surrounding the M we had developed for our wedding. Neither one of us are hunters, but we truly fell in love with the elegance in which an antler can be represented. Pinecones and birch were a beautiful accent for us to bring in the rustic.
I wanted a glamorous affair with a vintage feel old Hollywood feel.Dress designer: Brandy Maggie Sottero Gown (I have since donated the gown to Brides of America which provides military brides with wedding dresses) Bridal salon: Kleinfelds Bridal in New York City Shoes: Badgley Mischka Makeup Artist: Stein Eriksen SpaRing designer: Amazing custom rings by Sashka Jewelry New York City he was a pleasure to work with and got me the vintage look I was looking for.Jewelry: Sashka Jewelry Bridesmaids dresses: Lazaro.
