When it came to pulling together the fine details of the day, the couple enlisted the help of wedding planner Alexandra Kolendrianos. “Alexandra was incredible,” says the bride. “Our wedding would not have been as wonderful without her.” Brianne found most of her big-day inspiration on Pinterest. “It was my best friend from the moment we got engaged!” she says. After a quick brainstorming session with both Alexandra and Mindy Rice of Mindy Rice Floral and Event Design, Brianne trusted that their visions were aligned. She says, “They completely understood the style and vibe. We really wanted the venue to speak for itself and create a feeling around that.” For the flowers, the bride wanted a collection of muted, earthy tones with a fresh, romantic feeling.
So dreamy, right? When Bryce Covey sent over the wedding of Donovan Baddley and Becka Citron, I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Becka owns an adorable store in NY called Modern Anthology. Alder Manor was an abandoned Yonkers estate built in the early 20th century before the Irish American cultural organization bought it from the city and restored it.
This vintage wedding is such a refreshing mixture of nature and glamour. Alder Manor provides the perfect backdrop against the sparkle of her Jenny Packham Eden wedding dress and beautiful vintage wedding jewelry. Are you planning to incorporate any vintage wedding elements for your wedding?
