Kyle Michelle Weddings Blog
Arielle and John were a vision! John is the founder and CEO of Sticky Fingers Joint and was on the Top 40 Business Men under 40 in New York City - so it was super cool to work with him. As for Arielle, she was not only drop-dead gorgeous, but she is a Juilliard trained musician who is super talented. Having her expertise when choosing a band was awesome!
Meghan and she were absolute besties, as you can see from her review - "I would basically carry Meghans baby. To even begin to write a "review" about Meghan, Kristin, and Kyle Michelle Weddings is pretty pointless because they are too incredible for words. They are the best in New York City- and I have seen A LOT of planners in my job."
As for the design, Arielle wanted a beach wedding without all of the beach themed flowers / decor - which is where the purple florals, gold accents and silk champagne dresses came into play. Wait until you see the breathe taking flowers hanging from the Chuppah.
Check out this Chuppah - hanging flowers galore!!! One of my favorite floral Chuppahs of all time!
These centerpieces were to die for... They were the perfect amount of beach themed while being classy and unique. Honestly - when do you see centerpieces like this at a wedding?

I wanted to show off these amazing, trendy and unique dresses that some of our 2019 - 2020 brides have completely rocked! What we love about making this blog is that societal norm with wedding dresses, no longer exists- different is key! There are now dress changes in the middle of the celebration for a new, sleek and fun look, brides are no longer restricted to simply wearing white, and some are even spicing it up with cool colored heels, different hairstyles or even topping it off with spicy red lips. AHH, I just live for this content...
Feast your eyes!
Emily looked stunning in this pure white wedding gown, but not only did the kill the game in this classic gown, but in the middle of the reception she changed into a shorter and comfier couture dress paired with flats for a more fun and party look!
"I knew I loved the designer and knew that I wanted an embellished type dress, and honestly, the stylist I worked with really nailed it. I only tried on about six dresses total because when I tried this one on, literally nothing else compared!"
Emilys custom designed wedding dress was created by Sweet Caroline Styles. She knew she wanted a statement piece so they made a detachable skirt that she wore during the ceremony and then slipped it off for the reception. It is so cool and unique to see the sketches and then see the final project.
"I loved my dress for so many reasons!
1. The design! I loved that it was whimsical, with botanical looking lace. It was sexy with the low back but still sweet with the light pink in the skirt.
2. It was convertible! The skirt came off and it became the perfect simple, dancing dress"
Oh Kelly, where do I begin with this amazing dress? It was the prettiest shade of nude with breathtaking details in the wrap - but even when that wrap came off in the middle of the night, she looked sleek, sexy and stunning!
"One of our first stops was to Bridal Reflections on 5th Avenue. I tried on the Magnolia almost immediately and loved it so much! I told myself to keep looking only because it was day 1 and dress shopping couldn’t be that easy, could it? The following weekend we cancelled our appointments and only made one with Bridal Reflections and once I put the Magnolia back on was an easy, “say yes to the dress” moment."
Leah was simplistic and insanely classy with this unique off-the-shoulder wedding gown. I wish I had a picture of what she changed too after this gown - it was a tight and sexy, white, lace jumpsuit so that she could continue to dance the night away!
This dress was amazing in every way possible and no only fit Linley like a glove, but fit her personality as well.
"I always wanted to do feathers, because I fell in love with a dress that had feathers on it while I was dress shopping, but Priscilla Costa made me one I liked even more! I also loved how comfortable it was, this was important to me because I knew that I wanted to be able to dance and have fun. I think it was the perfect winter wonderland dress and I couldn’t have loved it more."
Marty's dress was pure elegance, but what we loved about even more was her strive to make a bang with her pop of red lipstick.
"When I started trying on wedding gowns, I gravitated towards gowns with a lot of details, but when I looked in the mirror, I only saw the dress — not me IN the dress. So after two unsuccessful appointments, I did a 180 and asked to see some clean and simple gowns. That did it! When I put on my Vera Wang gown for the first time, I saw myself as a bride marrying my husband. It was timeless, elegant, and sexy, and I felt beautiful. The gown allowed me to shine!"
Melissa was a vision in this strapless dress with blush undertone - she was a real live princess against the NYC sunset.
"I did not have a clear vision of my wedding dress before I started looking and was surprised that I found my dress so quickly. When I tried this Monique dress on during my first day looking, I knew it was the one. I loved the soft, romantic vibe that this dress gives off with the lace and blush undertone. I never envisioned myself wearing a big ballgown, but when else besides your wedding day do you get to wear a dress like this?!"
This gown was absolute perfection for a classy and elegant wedding. The front of this dress looks simple but the back of it was so unique with a huge bow that literally made the dress.
"I knew I wanted a dress that felt classic with a Southern feel to compliment my tented venue and magnolia leaf greenery. When I saw this bow, I fell in love!"
As we're waiting for the amazing shots from the ceremony and reception - we wanted to give you guys a tour of the tents and the transformation of the property. This firefly themed wedding was full of tipi tents, colorful florals, textured rugs and a variety of vintage furniture. Each tent was unique with its own food station, aesthetic and purpose - there was so much to do and so much to see! One tent had bohemian wicker basket light features while the other had classy chandeliers, all 3 set-ups had different cultured foods including; Japanese, Mexican, American, Italian etc. The tents also had photo booth opportunities, bars, fireplaces, there was a huge dance floor in the middle of the property and various lounge areas around the lawn. This wedding was the most spectacular, EPIC and unique wedding we have ever done... We wish we could experience it all over again - maybe as guests this time???
And not to mention, we fell in love with this couple and their amazing families!

College sweethearts, Cecile & Nash were such a charming couple and we were so happy to be their Day of Coordinator. The theme of the day was class and simplicity; we filled the mansion with lit candles, green and white, sophisticated florals and gold accents. The Stotesbury Mansion was such a cool venue, with 3 unique floors - they decided to have a cocktail style reception with different food selections on each floor. They had Oysters XO shucking oysters at cocktail hour, macaroon favors, a cigar bar with a pool table, and a sparkler exit to an awesome after party at The Logan!
Melissa and Adam tied the knot at this amazing venue, The Liberty Warehouse in New York City in November. The rustic and romantic charm that this venue had to offer was a perfect fit for this adorable couple. Their vibe was very classy and sophisticated - white florals with greenery, a lot of lighting, ivory linens and gold accents. Our favorite part was the two-part choreographed dance to introduce themselves as husband and wife - love that energy!

Kelly and Bryan were such an awesome couple to work with and needless to stay, they absolutely adored each other - wait til you see these photos... They got married at The Burden Kahn Mansion in New York City where the couple showed their love for books and all things out of the ordinary. She had custom table #'s from all her favorite romance novels and famously in-love characters - like Romeo & Juliet and Ross & Rachel from Friends! What better way of celebrating love then with it literally all around you?
The dress... This dress is one of my favorite dresses we've seen. The dress was a show stopper with its detail in the wrap which came off at the end of the night leaving a new, hot look for the bride - 2 for the price of 1!
The night ended with a magical walk through of sparklers and lots and lots of kissing! Congratulations Kelly and Bryan!

Leah and Mike were such an awesome couple to coordinate with! They had such an elegant presence about them and that helped the day run asboluetly perfect. The ceremony was by the pond at Winterthur and the reception was in a beautiful, lit-up space with an awesome Photo Booth and an AMAZING band. Ironically, the door in the Winterthur museum was made by Leah's great grandfather - so it was a very special moment to share with her guests. I loved this wedding so much because it was timeless and classic but with a hint of edge and uniqueness.

Marty and Mike got married at the amazing Horticulture Center which fit their "exotic jungle theme" wedding to perfection. A wedding has never come around in full circle like this one - starting with the invitations to the florals, the entire design of this wedding just bled into each other perfectly. As you will see scrolling through these pictures the entire wedding from start to finish fit their personalities just flawless. Very colorful, bubbly, and so outgoing. This couple was stunning inside and out and we absolutely loved planning this amazing wedding!
Marty was the most amazing bride - she completely put her trust in us as wedding planners which made the experience super easy and calming. She was so bubbly, happy, in love and obviously, STUNNING!!
Linley and Matt had the most amazing vision for their wedding day and it was an honor to make their vision come to life. The ceremony was at St. Patricks Church where they had a live choir throughout the ceremony. The reception was at The Logan, where tons of Christmas trees and twinkle lights were awaiting the guests. Linley and Matt were extremely happy and head over heels about the end result of the venue. As the night came to an end, they performed the famous Will Smith song, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while Philly cheesesteaks were passed around to all of the guests. This amazing Christmas wedding absolutely stole our hearts and we wish much love and happiness to this beautiful couple as this wedding will be in our hearts forever!
Let's talk about this dress... This dress was designed by the bride and Priscilla Costa - starting with just a sketch on a piece of paper. The feather and sequin design made every sway and movement completely breathtaking. This dress is a one of a kind, just like the bride!!!
Cocktail hour and the reception was at The Logan - where a custom-made champagne tower was waiting for each guest topped with a cinnamon sugar rim, a dash of rosemary and cranberries with each flute. The champagne tower really helped to tie together the vision of Christmas and class. The reception area was filled with lit-up Christmas trees, wreaths, red and burgundy florals and candles - it was truly a wonderland.
Not shown: the 3 costume changes this band did throughout their performance. They were one of the most interactive bands we've ever experienced and they sure knew how to bring a party to the dance floor!
