Whenever one of my brides actually ties the knot, I'm jazzed! I know weddings can all be so different, still I'm intrigued with how each couple''s unique personalitiy fuses into a particular theme. With Donna and Matt it all started with the colors purple and red. Donna sat down for her initial consultation totally in love with the embroidered organza 'April' dress. She wanted to incorporate some of her own touches to make the design her own and truly unique. The result: check out the punch under the full skirt via a red and black polka dot and purple tulle petticoat. Pulling it all together with a red satin sash and 'I heart you' shoes by Vivienne Westwood and Donna made a great tribute to Valentine's week . . .
Says Donna: "Our whole goal for the wedding was having a laid back fun vibe which I think we achieved. We picked the Top of the Mark as our 'First Look' venue because that is where we got engaged. We both fell in love with this location the very first time we saw it, it was beautiful but not stuffy. 'Sauce' was suggested to us by Loic, our photographer, as our reception venue. We told him the vibe we were going for and that we wanted comfort food. It turned out to be the perfect spot. I loved the red velvet walls and am a cupcake fanatic, so having cupcakes was a no brainer. We were able to get a lot of different flavors and they're so cute. "
