The Royal Wedding Invitations | Kate and William's Luxury Wedding Invitations

I was so excited when Lela New York was asked by to redesign the Royal Wedding Invitations of Prince William and Kate Middleton! Here is our version ;)

Mixing both classic and modern details I wanted to use our very popular silk gatefolds for the invite accessory and keeping the actual invitation card classic. We made a portrait style invitation and used a royal navy for the silk color that was custom embroidered in a deeper navy to give a rich texture. A gold version was also applied on the inside of the invitation which can be seen when the invite is opened. The center closure is a custom made emblem that has the Royal "ER" engraved in the center and adorned with crystal details.
The invitation itself is a cream extra thick cotton stock that has been beveled and printed in a traditional all script gold engraving.
The whole invitation would be sent in a custom diecut envelope that has a custom printed liner in a matching gold pattern.

Here is a closer look!

What do you guys think?
Here is the original invitation

Inspirational Real Rustic Chic Wedding | Yellow & Gray | Apple Barn Farm, NY

I LOVE this Rustic chic wedding that was held in Apple Farms in Livingston, NY
Kristin and Craig chose a yellow and gray color combo which makes everything so cheery and sunny!
Everything from the cake to the table numbers reflects her sunny theme and I just heart all the sun filled pictures of the couple. SO pretty!
Plus I found out Kristin and Craig got married on the same Septemver day that I did! How cool is that?! I know they must have had a crisp sunny day, I LOVE September weddings. Sigh... I miss my wedding, send in more picts of weddings I like to live through them, LOL!

We all will miss Elizabeth Taylor , a true movie star and the last of the celebrities from the golden age of Hollywood.

Don't you just love those eyes and that necklace!

Today I wanted to look back at this fashion and style icon and her fabulous weddings and style.

My Wedding Video is here! | YAY! I can share my NY Wedding with you!

I was so excited when I got my wedding video this weekend I think I watched it like 100 times by now, I know a bit obsessive ;) The video was shot and edited by the amazing Love in Progress Video Productions. I just LOVE it! This is the highlight video that captures just 5 minutes of my big day.

If your thinking of not getting video, please reconsider! Since the wedding itself flies by, I can't tell you how amazing it is to be able to look back and smile, cry and laugh all over again!

For those of you who do not know the details yet, my wedding venue was the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, NY. Why a beach, why Long beach? Well, it's a sweet story actually, I met my husband on that very beach surfing about five years ago. (Yes, people surf in NY) And when we got engaged in Maui we of course wanted to continue with a "beach wedding" theme. So while we were looking out by Montauk and the Hamptons I found the Allegria Hotel, sort of by accident. It had just opened that same year we got engaged and we took it as a sign and fell in love with the location.

I LOVE this Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding shot by the amazing Levi Stolove Photgraphy! Now that winter is almost behind us, here is one more look at a winter wonderland wedding affair!

The Bride and Groom are Brooklyn locals and were looking for a winter Brooklyn affair. The Bride's father who grew up in Park Slope played with his crew of bagpipers serenading the Bride and Groom who laughed and cried at the performance.

This wedding makes me happy :)
