Alexandra Grecco Tulle Skirt Giveaway

Alexandra Grecco Tulle Skirts

We’re kind of obsessed with brides in skirts. And, really, what’s not to love? Skirts can make for such a fun + unique bridal look. We’re definitely into it. So, naturally, when the ultra-talented NY based designer, Alexandra Grecco, offered to give away one of her gorgeous A-line tulle skirts to one super lucky GWS reader, well, we just couldn’t get on board fast enough! Let’s hear a little blurb about this pretty item that’s up for grabs (and has us swooning big time):

Our company is based in Brooklyn and all of our pieces are made in NYC. Our tulle skirt has 6 layers of tulle layered to create the perfect A-line shape, is fully lined and has a silk waistband. It’s available in Ivory, Blush, Seafoam, Lavender Grey and Black – 24″ or 30″ length. It’s lovely for bridal parties, engagement shoots, weddings. This skirt has been featured on numerous “it girl” bloggers such as Alix of Cherry Blossom Girl and Blair of Atlantic Pacific

Sweet New Jersey Farm Wedding: Janice + James

New Jersey farm wedding

We really love Janice + James’ sweet New Jersey farm wedding for so many reasons. And their perfect use of pastels is pretty high up on that list. Somehow they incorporated the most romantic shades into their celebration without it ever looking overly feminine or saccharine. From the pale-hued bridesmaids frocks which were just right, to the garden-inspired florals, chosen in blush and white shades, everything incorporated was a perfect fit for their natural, rustic surroundings. Bravo to J + J (and their awesome event designers Gilded Lily Events + MaryKateMoon)!

From Janice, I think we stayed true to what we both wanted. We both come from pretty traditional families and all of our siblings were previously married in churches and had their receptions at fancy banquet-hall-type places…so I think our parents expected something similar. I always said that if I did get married, I wish that I had a great-big house to have it at. We wanted that laid back, backyard party type of vibe and that is exactly what we got! Since we didn’t have our own great, big house, when we stumbled upon The Waterwitch Club, we decided it was perfect. In the end, we stuck to our guns and loved how everything turned out.

Thanks so much to Pat Furey for the beautiful photos and big congrats to Janice + James!

And we love how a predominately white bouquet just feels so classic. We love Janice’s bouquet with those pretty anemones + touches of languid white veronica.

I hate to make this about me instead of about James and I, but for me, it was when my mom showed up. The Thursday before our wedding weekend, she was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia-like symptoms and was not doing well at all. She was all the way at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia which is about two hours from The Waterwitch. They discharged her at about 10AM that morning and my parents made it just in time to take a few photos and walk me down the aisle. There was also James, crying at the altar watching me walk down the aisle...hearts may have shot out of my eyes when I saw that.

Berry-hued Botanical Wedding Inspiration

berry botany inspiration

Yep, it’s true, we’re crazy for color. Any + all hues are welcome in our book. Today’s editorial provides the perfect palette inspiration for a super gorgeous fall wedding, so we were loving it right from the get-go. The gals behind this one (Lime Green Photography + Statice Couture) were influenced by vintage botanical posters, bright + unique florals, and the contrast between light and dark. And they staged a setting that would inspire, say, a stylish dinner party, a pretty Autumn wedding, or really anything in between! Let’s hear a bit more about it from Megan of Lime Green:

We wanted to use an array of natural elements and plants that couples wouldn’t normally think to consider when choosing their florals and table decor. For example, Suzie of Statice used aloe vera leaves as an interesting way to add texture and elongation to the table, instead of a traditional runner. The plates were decorated with large fig leaves and leucodedron flowers. The candlesticks were wrapped in birch, and pomegranates + blackberries were included as another way to incorporate nature. A large black ceremony backdrop made out of plywood was installed behind our couple to create contrast in our light filled space, similar to a vintage botanical poster or floral Dutch Masters painting.

The cake was designed by Jonathan Caleb, who is a true sugar artist. All of the flowers on the cake are made of sugar, and it was covered in dark chocolate.

Our bride wore beautiful Sarah Seven gowns from Wildflower Bridal and was decorated with jewelry from Christina Nicole. We loved having different options for her hair, as most brides like to change things up for their reception. The flower crown was designed by Statice and the headband from Three Bird Nest
