We were thrilled to photograph the lovely Martha Stewart Weddings Bridal Market Party again this year. It's always so much fun to see what the creme de la creme wedding artists are up to and this event continues to draw some of the most energetic people in the industry. This year's party palette included vibrant shades of reds, oranges and yellows situated amongst Martha's penthouse office hive in NYC's West Village. As you might imagine, everything is "just so" and cared for with her hallmark attention to detail. MS Weddings', Darcy Miller, and her fantastic team really know how to throw a party, and continue to share their insights into the latest wedding trends.
Some of our favorite people were in attendance: Matthew Robbins is a pure delight and full of creative ideas which are shared in his new book, Inspired Weddings. Whenever we work together, we're met with such sincerity and smiles. Amy Degiulio from Sugar Flower Cake Shop demonstrated her cakemaking artistry in the kitchen where guests could learn some of the master's secrets and tour some of MSW's studios and offices. The backrooms are filled with studios and prop shops (some of which we're not allowed to share!) including drawers and drawers of serving spoons of all shapes, sizes, and color - they're careful to seldom, if never, repeat themselves. Claudia and the girls from the Wedding Library are always a blast and helped to organize the entire event. Other A- List guests included Monique Lhuillier, Colin Cowie , Randy Fenoli, Films by Francesco, and some of our most respected colleagues. The incomparable Elan Artists dished up some amazing entertainment (several bands and DJ's) which inspired many to hit the dance floor - including Martha herself, which we are unfortunately also unable to show (you can see a couple here however)!
