Independence Day inspirations – styled shoot by Colin Cowie

June 26, 2017

If you are thinking about celebrating the 4th of July with your friends and family, take a look at this independence day photo shoot we styled for this very occasion.
We covered everything from the overall motif and vision, to the invitations, to the table settings, the signature drink, cupcakes and flowers that embrace the very spirit of the day.


Colin Cowie brought his signature style and vision to pull this whole event together. His close collaboration with everyone and attention to the finest detail brings a level of panache that is so quintessentially classy to the whole affair.

Engaging invites, featured by The New York Times, devised this innovative Independence Day themed shoot by providing custom-made interactive invitations. Engaging Invites incorporates people’s favorite video or photos into a slideshow invitation, an innovation that brings a next level of personalization to any invitation!

Alchemy Fine Home did a fabulous job bringing together a classic table setting that incorporates the colors of our flag while creating room for all of the amazing goodies to come.

Cream Blossoms brought delectable, unique floral cupcakes that are to pretty to eat. BUT those fluffy, moist cupcakes filled with blueberries and topped with heavenly edible buttercream flowers were simply too good to resist!


Spring & Social provided the stunning table florals incorporating red ranunculus, white peonies, and blue sea hollies. The floral artist masterfully played with soft pastel colors and the assertive red to perfectly blend them into elegant fragrant harmony.
The Grand Bevy, the guru of spirits and signature cocktails, provided the signature refreshing cocktail:

1.5 oz Rye Whiskey

2 oz Hibiscus Tea

0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice

0.5 oz Blueberry syrup

1.5 oz Blueberries (muddled)

Fresh Mint

Fresh Tarragon


Cheers!


And last but not least, Tatiana Valerie at Artvesta Studio documented the shoot. Please enjoy the photos and the video and Happy 4th of July!!!

Miriam & Adam ~ Central Park Engagement

June 6, 2017

Meet Miriam and Adam, a happy couple, a genuine example of happiness and being in love. Witnessing and capturing the joy of the true love makes me happy. Please enjoy the couple’s love story.

Miriam & Adam - Engagement session in Central Park

Adam and I first met at our Rabbi’s house about 10 years ago. Adam came sporadically to religious events, while I attended every single one. From the moment I saw Adam, I fell in complete love with his charming smile and his sweet disposition. He was the first one to always offer the Rabbi’s wife help around the kitchen and house. Over the years, our interactions never went beyond a shy smile and a quick hello.

Adam was extremely shy growing up and later recalled how he watched me out of the corner of his eye, never mustering up the courage to talk to me at length. About 3 years ago Adam and I reconnected at our Rabbi’s house once again, after not really seeing each other for a few years. We started hanging out in a group of friends, and we quickly found out how much fun we had while in each other’s presence.

Our friendship developed over the years, while our teenage feelings of adoration became deeply rooted respect, devotion, and mutual understanding. Adam first asked me on a date on February 14, 2016, not realizing it was Valentine’s day! We cooked an elaborate Thai themed dinner that took us 4 hours to prepare and then got dressed up to enjoy our beautiful creation. Loving each other and each other’s wonderful families came so naturally to us so on August 24, 2016, Adam proposed. Knowing how much I adore hiking and nature, Adam took me on a beautiful hike in Northern NJ and proposed to me at the top of the mountain.

We are so grateful that we have reunited and reconnected after all of these years after we had time to grow and mature into the people we are today. Every day is an incredible day because I have Adam in my life; we inspire each other to grow spiritually, expand our cultural/artistic horizons, and cultivate our foodie repertoire.

Nora & Ronen’s beautiful and fun modern Jewish orthodox wedding was held at Studio 450, a trendy venue located in midtown Manhattan. The couple’s young love and authentic beauty is reflected in every embrace and kiss. What a cute pair of true loves! Nora has a sophisticated, yet innocent, classic beauty you would expect out of a medieval princess. Ronen’s confident, wide smile can light up any room and any crowd. It was such a pleasure working with these two beautiful loving people who are starting their life together as a married couple.

Damien and Leilani ~ The Marmara Park Avenue, Midtown Loft & Terrace

October 26, 2016

Capturing couples’ happiest moments makes me happy. Every moment has its own beauty and this wedding of a New Yorker, Damien, and a native Alaskan, Leilani, was truly unique and magical. The day tastefully incorporated elements of both cultures, celebrating the beautiful blend of traditions.

For the union of Damien and Leilani, both parties got ready for their big day at the Marmara Hotel in New York City.  The Marmara is one of the best known luxury hotel chains in Turkey. Its NYC branch is located on East 32nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue. A spacious terrace of the hotel, which shows the gorgeous backdrop of the Chrysler Building, was the perfect place to start the day. Though it was marginally cold out, the couple braved the chill to take their photos on the outside terrace of one of the hotel’s suites.

The harmony of the happy couple matched the synchronicity of their chosen accessories. Both the groom’s boutonniere and the bride’s bouquet matched in rich color and paid homage to bride’s home state of Alaska. The groom’s boutonniere had a cute addition of a Ruffed Grouse’s feather, the most predominant bird in Alaska. The bride’s bouquet incorporated a strip of fur wrapped around the flowers. Both unique additions alluded to hunting, which is a significant part of the Alaskan culture.

From the hotel, both parties moved on to the Midtown Loft & Terrace at 267 5th Avenue where they held an outdoor ceremony incorporating some Jewish and native Alaskan traditions important to the bride and groom such as breaking a coconut by Leilani’s dad and breaking the glass by Damien. It was a beautiful ceremony taking place under an arch covered in burgundy and golden flowers. Those warm and welcoming tones were carried through to the reception, along with rich turquoise, to create an intimate and elegant reception atmosphere.

It was a fun and lively party, especially with the addition of the lifting of the chairs, another Jewish tradition. It was also an emotional evening at times with some touching moments such as parents’ dances and speeches by members of both sides of the family. The night ended with an available-light photo of a romantic kiss between a newly wed husband and wife, with the background of a lit up Empire State Building.
