This clever bride took her passion of architecture and applied it to her wedding day! This NYC Snug Harbor wedding took place in two lovely and unique locations and was accompanied by DIY stationery designed by the bride herself! We love an industrious bride!

Make Your Own Stationery

From the Bride: I printed my own invitations, programs, menus and table card numbers. I purchased a high resolution lace graphic and found 2 fonts that I used throughout the whole design suite. The lace was inspired by my dress and kept with the soft romantic theme I wanted. 

Since the ceremony and reception were at two different locations, and Snug Harbor is such a big place, I decided to make little maps with directions on the back of the ceremony and reception sites. This really helped guests visualize where they needed to go and it showed them where they could find parking.

The Perfect Venue

The inspiration for our wedding was to keep it soft, romantic and timeless. Since I am an architect, I really wanted the venue to be interesting and beautiful. When we came across Celebrate at Snug Harbor, I fell in love! The 40ft tall ceilings, rich wood finishes and Palladian windows of the Great Hall took my breath away. Not to mention the food is incredible!

Sweet Little Favors

We wanted to do a little something extra for our guests after we cut the cake, so our wedding planner put together a beautiful dessert bar. We also used the dessert bar as our wedding favor, giving everyone little to-go bags so none of the goodies would go to waste.
