Our Real Pop Up Wedding

WOW! Last night was our first Pop Up wedding. Leah and Michael looked fantastic and had an amazing turnout of friends, press and supporters participating in the celebration. What a lucky couple they are. Amongst other services, the couple received matching diamond rings (via the Wedding Library) with over 230 diamonds. Martha Stewart Weddings Darcy Miller and her stellar team styling the event. Mel Barlow donated her priceless photographic services and boundless positive energy. Milk & Honey's video skills on hand to preserve the moment. We loved Glazier Group's delicious hors d'oeuvres, servers and spiked lemonade. And of course, Pommery Pops provided the pink (of course!) champagne.
The bride wore Amsale's "Ally" dress made just for her and generously donated by the company. Her "Elena" birdcage veil is by Bride's Head Revisited. Hair and makeup were by Butterfly Salon -- Leah looked beautiful! Katie Berry of Martha Stewart Weddings labored over the intricate paper bouquet and boutonniere. Lela Rose provided the "something blue" shoes.A close-up of the bouquet.
