With a simple train ride up, we never turn down a chance to plan epic weddings in NYC. And spread the word! As you’ll see below, SBE weddings are always a GOOD time. Breanna and Jamal’s wedding at Wythe Hotel in NYC was not only stunning from every angle, but we can’t help but glow a little looking back on the photos and seeing how much everyone truly enjoyed themselves. It’s the most rewarding part of our work! If you are looking for a team of DC and NYC wedding planners who focus on experience as much as the aesthetic, learn more about working with us here.
Before diving in, we need a moment for this invitation suite. Our bride, Breanna, is an extraordinarily talented graphic designer. She beautifully crafted a number of elements for their wedding, including this gorgeous wedding invitation suite and some of the meticulously designed day-of stationery items you’ll find as you keep scrolling. We are still drooling over some of the details!
Breanna and Jamal had a beautiful private first look, exchanging personal vows that melted our hearts. As wedding planners, we absolutely adore this idea and highly recommend it to our couples. Not only does it help alleviate those pre-ceremony jitters, but it also creates a cherished moment of tranquility amidst the whirlwind of the big day. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this magical experience together (and don’t worry – we will help you work it into your timeline).
Breanna and Jamal were drawn to soft modern elements, which paired perfectly with the Wythe Hotel’s industrial vibe. We chose modern black chairs that would stand out without distracting from the beauty of the space and Breanna and Jamal stood between two gorgeous floral pillars (with pops of citrus florals) against the brick wall backdrop. Their unplugged ceremony was incredibly meaningful, but the most memorable moment has got to be that dip after their first kiss. After that, they shared a private moment where they cut their cake, and then the group photos began!
Breanna and Jamal’s wedding vision was truly a DREAM aesthetic. We found immense joy in bringing their vision to life, meticulously infusing the modern elements and the industrial space with a warm and inviting ambiance. The reception tables were adorned with delicate soft florals, creating an enchanting atmosphere that was only enhanced by the string lighting and gorgeous taper candles. It was cozy, romantic, and jaw-droppingly beautiful. Every detail was thoughtfully crafted to ensure an unforgettable experience for the couple and their guests.
We always love an outfit change for the reception but Breanna’s one-shoulder feather dress had our jaws dropping. Can you say goals?! The entire evening was such a blast, and the dance floor was packed all night long. Then, for the after party, they headed downstairs to The Wythe’s Screening Room where they enjoyed karaoke and all the late night bites we love (like popcorn, sliders, and fries!). We could not have dreamed of a more epic ending to an incredible day!
