Today we have another beautiful wedding shot by Karen Wise


Deborah carried a clutch that belonged to Sean’s grandmother, and wore her grandmother’s pearls and a dress by Selia Yang.

Look at Sean’s sweet “locket” money clip, with a photo of his beautiful bride.

Sean and Deb created their own New Yorker magazine for out-of-town guests, full of fun things to do in the city and articles contributed by family members with stories about growing up in Chinatown, running the New York City marathon, and other New York related tales.

The ceremony took place at St. Luke in the Fields.

Flowers by Elegant Affairs.

Worried they might not have time to eat, Deb and Sean stopped by Gray’s Papaya for hot dogs between the ceremony and the reception! 

For favors (that double as seating cards!), Sean and Deb wrapped some of their favorite books in brown paper, and labeled them with each guest’s name and a volume number. Each volume number acted as a table number, directing guests to their seats.


The reception took place at the Yale Club.

Carrot cake was perfect for an October wedding.

Congratulations Deb and Sean, and thank you to Karen Wise for sharing these lovely photos with us!

I love being home for the holidays and getting to spend so much time with family and friends – I got to go with my dear, beautiful friend Kathleen to her final dress fitting yesterday, and she looks so beautiful! And then a busy weekend involving lots of eating and cooking. And probably naps. Here are some of my favorite things from around the web this week…

First off, since I still haven’t heard from the winner of the Beau-coup giveaway, we’ve got a new winner! Bo who said, i love the whole leaf tea sachet favors. they are in such elegant pyramid shaped boxes with a leaf sticking out on top. i picture them being used as favors in a winter wedding with a lunch reception, along with vintage teacups. Bo, email me to claim your prize!

I know we had a whole week of winter wedding boards last week, but how could I resist a snowy log cabin, deer-topped cupcakes, and kissing in the snow! In my mind, this intimate wedding takes place at a cozy inn, with a day of cross country skiing followed by a ceremony (maybe a short one outdoors!) and a reception full of cookies and eggnog.

Mood: warm and cozy
Palette: eggnog, nutmeg
