Believe it or not, 2020 wasn’t all bad. There are some sweet moments where we got to party like it was 2019, and Miriam + Bobby’s glamorous Assyrian and Palestinian wedding at Galleria Marchetti was definitely one of them.
If there is one thing I love in equal amounts to throwing a party, it’s definitely traveling and New York City is a favorite. Exploring new places, trying new foods, and seeing how others live is one of the things that brings me a lot of joy, not to mention endless amounts of inspiration for events and interiors. New York City is one of those places you can go over and over again and never do the exact same thing. I try to spend at least one weekend every year in NYC, and here are the things I constantly find myself going back to time and time again. Consider this your cheat sheet for a weekend well-spent, you know, once we can travel again.
Everything is weird right now. And even weirder that you all are out there trying to plan a wedding during this upside-down time. SO, anything that resembles the before times, or just a moment to get out of your routine and pretend things are normal is such a treat. So when the team at Belle Atelier asked us to swing by to see their new Chicago wedding dress shop (literally opened right as the pandemic got going) we jumped. We also showered, put on hard pants, lightly blow-dried, and put on EYE MAKE-UP (took a minute to remember how, tbh) so it’s clear we are in love with Giselle and the team.
The global pandemic has postponed so many weddings this year, but the silver lining is that it’s giving us more time to dive into all of the inspiration we can find on the web. Below are our top nine wedding blogs/websites for wedding inspiration. Happy browsing!
When Covid hit, every couple planning a wedding had a tough decision to make. Katie + Matt were one of those couples and they couldn’t wait to get married! Their big Thalia Hall reception may be postponed until next year, but that didn’t stop them from tying the knot — and celebrating! They went full steam ahead with a sweet, little Covid wedding ceremony in Pilsen followed by an outdoor gathering at a family home in Highland Park and we couldn’t love it more.
