A Dreamy Wedding at the Drake

January 14, 2022,

Genesis and Brett are a fairytale couple. It is impossible not to feel the love they not only have for each other but for everyone they encounter— it radiates in all directions. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help bring their vision to life! I worked with this couple in the capacity of  month of coordinator, essentially being their guide for the final stretch of the planning journey. Our month of coordination service allows our clients to utilize our knowledge and expertise to ensure that all final details are tended to and that a detailed, thoughtful timeline is created for the day. Additionally, we work with our clients to ensure that all vendors and creative partners are on the same page and moving in the same direction to ensure a successful and seamless wedding day. They were such a pleasure to work with, and their day was as sweet and stylish as they are! Let’s take a look!


With the timeless elegance of The Drake ballrooms, the ivory + gold color story gave this wedding a classic-romantic vibe. Genesis looked stunning in her princess ball gown and cathedral veil. Her bridesmaids complemented the mood with nude satin gowns, and of course, the guys were looking oh so sharp in black. The ballroom was glowing with candlelight from floor to ceiling (literally), setting the tone for an intimate and romantic celebration. The bride opted for minimal yet impactful floral with a combination of candelabra and tall centerpieces, uplighting everything to really accentuate the gilded feel of the ballroom.

Cheers to you, Genesis + Brett!
