Sexy Pumpkin at the Westmount CC

We had the honor of working with Justine and Steven for the last 15 months and then watching them exchange vows last weekend. What an amazing and sweet couple! The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful Basilica of our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn, NY. Following that was a fabulously over the top reception at the one and only Westmount Country Club.

Interesting story...
When the Bride came to me back in 2007 she asked us to help take her vision of an elegant fall inspired wedding and turn it into something unique. She showed me this mini pumpkin (couldn't have been more than 2 inches high) that was covered with colorful bling. While neither of us felt it was the appropriate decorative touch for her event, I did get inspired by the sexy-ness of that small pumpkin!!!! From that moment on I coined her wedding design (jokingly) as SEXY PUMPKIN! Somehow the phrase stuck and 15 months later....Justine and I both agree that her wedding was SEXY PUMPKIN and BEYOND!
We incorporated deep browns, merlots and reds..and accented with touches of matte gold. Add some crystal, candlelight and gorgeous textured linens...and we had one beautiful wedding design!

A big thanks to the amazing staff at the Westmount, especially Stephanie and Karen. Of course we have to give a huge kudos to Matt and his team at Atlas Florists, Tricia Catenaro for beautifying the bride, Santos for the reliable transportation, and Cloth Connection for the rentals.
