Carly knew she wanted a wedding that was romantic, rustic, and personal. To reflect her vision, she and Eric got married at Tribeca 360 amongst a color palette of warm tones. The palette of gold, champagne, and blush was carried through from the flowers to the decor to the bridesmaid dresses. The experts from Tantawan Bloom created a vintage french countryside style using roses, hydrangeas, orchids, and other seasonal blooms in tones of white, ivory and a touch of blush to bring Carly’s vision to life. “I knew our florist got exactly what I was looking for on our first visit, and although I had put together some inspiration boards to help translate my vision, they understood it and delivered,” she tells Twirl new York.
To greet the guests, an escort card table was unique but also beautiful. “I wish I had the escort table as a permanent fixture in my house! I loved the moss, the succulents, the base – it was so exquisite. We wanted something out of the ordinary when you first walked in, but something that also set up the feel of the rest of the evening, which I think did it perfectly.”
I literally would not have changed one thing about my wedding day.—Carly
Because Carly and Eric used the same room for both their ceremony and reception, they wanted the decor for each aspect of the wedding to work well together, yet be distinct.
For the ceremony, a chuppah gave off an ethereal feeling, “when you walked down the aisle or sat in the room it felt like you were floating on a cloud,” she remembers. “The chuppah was elevated, framed with tree branches dressed with dendrobium orchids as well as hanging candles.”
For the reception, high and low centerpiece were scattered throughout the room and included 4’ tall trees with orchids adorning the branches, and low arrangements of white and blush colored blooms set in a natural wood container. Candles added to the room’s romantic glow as gold votives on the tables or scattered throughout the room.
While the palette and decor were certainly romantic, once the reception started, there was more romance to be had. Carly and Eric danced their first dance to Van Morrison’s Crazy Love, which then immediately went into Beyonce’s Crazy in Love, a choreographed number the couple learned in pre-wedding dance lessons.
And nothing could top the surprise Eric had in store for his bride later in the reception. The groom took piano lessons in Brooklyn almost every week for five months and then went to rehearsals at a nearby studio for the weeks leading up to the wedding, to perform Bob Seger’s You’ll Accompany Me. “I had absolutely no idea. He did such a fantastic job and I will never forget that special surprise,” Carly says.
