Secret Garden: Wedding Inspiration at Top of the Garden, New York City

“Love is the only thing that when shared, grows.” When Ashley of Dulce Dreams Events first told me about this quote and the idea for an inspiration shoot at Top of the Garden in Midtown Manhattan, she didn’t need to say much else for me to get on board with her. Collaborating with her on shoots is always a fun, creative process — not many people will be online after midnight to go back and forth on mood boards with you! This shoot was no exception; it was such a pleasure to work with the brilliant team Ashley assembled, including The Wild Ivy, Yuling Designs, Sweet Grace Cake Design, Sabrina Gilbert NYC, The White Gown, Brooklyn Tailors and GT Modern Creations. And we’re all so happy to see it featured recently on Inspired By This

Yuling Designs did an incredible job adding elegance and a touch of whimsy with the stationery and paper goods.

Between Tradell Hawkins looking super handsome in his navy blue suit from Brooklyn Tailors and Peony Seki looking drop-dead gorgeous in this made-for-fall long sleeve dress from The White Gown, I could not have been more excited to shoot these two as they played couple for the day!

Love this quote…SecretGarden7

The beautiful rooftop space at Top of the Garden in Midtown Manhattan served as our ceremony location. I love how Ivy and Emily transformed the modern space into an romantic garden with the rose-adorned garland “arch.”

If you’re going to get hitched in NYC, why not do it with this stunning backdrop?!

Ashley and team carried over the lush look of a secret garden in the main loft space of the venue. I love the ivy “chandelier” and garland that runs the length of the table as the centerpiece!

Ashley thinks of every last detail, down to choosing the best stemware for the occasion! Love the simple elegance of these silver-rimmed champagne flutes…
