Show us Your Life Wedding Party and Flowers/Ceremony

I'm participating in Kelly's Korner "Show us How You Live." Today's theme is your wedding party and flowers, so it's a fun way for those of us married a few years ago to reminisce!

We were married September 29, 2006 in New York City. I'm from VA and my husband grew up on Long Island, so it felt right to have the wedding here in NYC where we met. We had the ceremony and reception at Tribeca Rooftop, which in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful venues in the City. The weather was gorgeous after a stormy morning and we were lucky enough to have the ceremony outside overlooking Manhattan. For those of you who haven't picked up on this, my husband is Jewish and I'm Catholic. Interfaith marriage is fairly common here in NYC, so ceremony planning was surprisingly easy and both faiths were represented. We had a rabbi and a priest who incorporated traditions for both sides of the family (and we had a very fun hora at the beginning of the reception!).

I had three bridesmaids, my sisters and Matt's sister. They carried hydrangeas, which are my favorite. My bouquet was white amaryllis and our Moms carried white dahlias. We carried this them to the tables and used all white flowers, hydrangeas, dahlias, orchids, etc. And before I forget, the bridesmaids dresses were JCrew and they wore necklaces from KEP Designs.

We opted for almost all film when we chose Sheri Whitko as our photographer and we couldn't have been happier with the pictures! That said, it's almost three years later and we still haven't ordered our album or pictures...I know, I know, it's pathetic. I plan to get to it in August before our three-year anniversary. So the pictures I have are those shot by family and friends. Enjoy, Happy Friday!

Is that common to wait 3 years for photos?
I've so enjoyed looking at all the ladies' wedding photos. There's so much love, beauty and creativity.
I love your dress. Everyone looks so gorgeous.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful day!
