Okay ladies! It is time to talk registries! For those of you that are a bit more particular (read: Lady Grey falls into this category) it is often times hard to find the perfect store to register at because choosing all the loveliness you’ll want for your newly married life is hard to squeeze into just two or three stores! Am I right? This is where Zola comes in. Zola is an all-in-one, flexible registry that allows you to register for beautiful gifts, memorable experiences, cash/honeymoon funds and anything from any store. That means, everything you’d ever want, completely customized, and all in one place! Ready to hear how it works?

First off, Zola is super easy! You have total control and can do things like decide when/where your gifts are shipped (moving between now and the honeymoon??–your gifts can be shipped when you are settled in your new abode!). You can also track gifts, their recipients, and make your thank you’s much easier! Editorial - Canvas Vase

And–get this! If you are a shopper on the go and see something you love in store, just use the Zola iPhone app to scan barcodes and add to your registry in one quick step! OH MY! Plus, don’t love what someone picked out or changed your mind? You can exchange gifts before they are sent to you! Seriously. I die.

Adriana and Ariel are a crazy gorgeous couple that are taking over today’s post to tell you all about their engagement photos shot by the ever talented Blackbird Foto.

How the couple met:

We met while attending the Tax Masters Program at Florida International University. We have seen each other in school in the past, but we never talked (even though we both graduated from our bachelors on the same day and have graduation pictures together). Once we were in the masters, we started to get to know each other through common friends and by collaborating on class projects. This led us to become good friends. We enjoyed spending endless hours together talking just about anything and enjoying our morning coffee together before the class. Very quickly our Starbucks library trips became a tradition and often a subject of jokes for our classmates. Ariel would call me few times a week with questions about material from our tax classes…but after few months he admitted that he did that just to be able to talk to me. He was very persistent and patient. With the passing of time, I started to realize that our friendship became something more. We genuinely cared for each other. We would spend hours studying until late on school campus. Ariel would never want to leave, because waiting until the next morning to see me was too long for him :). Whenever we would be together we would just look at each other and say: Happy Times! It was our inside couple motto.

The proposal story:

Ariel proposed almost two and half years since we started dating. He chose the same place where we first kissed as the location where he professed his love to me.”

© Blackbird Foto | www.blackbirdfoto.com © Blackbird Foto | www.blackbirdfoto.com

Ariel on the proposal:

“It was hard to convince her to go to celebrate our two and a half year anniversary…after all who does that?! Ultimately I persuaded her and we went for a late lunch and romantic walk on the beach. I started telling her with a shaky voice how much she meant to me and finally got on one knee to ask the love of my life to be my wife. Her first words were: Is this really happening? I remember tears in her eyes saying yes and making me feel the luckiest men in the world. There are no words that could really describe what I felt once she said yes. I just can say that I really look forward everyday to be married to the most amazing woman in the entire universe, the love of my life, my best friend, my everything.”

About the photoshoot:

Ariel and I want to memorialize our engagement in a timeless manner. We strongly felt that whatever location and theme we choose, it should truly represent us: where we live and what we often do during our weekends. We wanted a beautiful backdrop to create amazing memories for us, our families and future kids, but not necessarily in very traditional way. As a former model I knew that beautiful wardrobe and make up would truly bring my vision together. It took couple of weeks to create everything. Finding the clothes and right props was challenging. I also did not want my pictures to have a feeling of being too “sweet” or too “cute”. I wanted to express our love through Alisa’s camera lens with certain level of maturity and simple natural beauty with minimal make up.

For the beach shoot, we wanted to have a feeling of a morning after an amazing evening… a couple on the beach enjoying sunrise. I opted for a beautiful sequin Badgley Mishka gown and Ariel a slim fit Banana Republic navy suit. Ariel is Cuban and his entire family would spend every year their vacation in beautiful beaches of Varadero. Beach is very close to Ariel’s heart and so it was a very obvious choice for us. Also, Ariel did propose on the beach, so it will be actually always a special place for both of us.

Walks and picnics in the park is something that I really enjoy; hence, the idea for a fall picnic. Since I started planning the wedding I spend a lot of time browsing through pictures. A lot of the ideas were inspired by the photos shared by the Pinterest community, for example, the monogrammed bottle. Other props were more spontaneous finds, for example the Anthropologie’s monogrammed notebook or love poems book.

The walk in the park look was inspired by the verses from Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s poetic tale “The Little Prince”. It a romantic story that reflects on human nature and relationships. The story emphasizes the importance of listening to our heart and carying for each other are beautifully captured through quotes like “One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” and “You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.” Ariel is my prince and I am his one and only rose :) I translated the idea through the Matheson Hammock park backdrop and a rose printed silk jumpsuit by Stone Cold Fox. My make up and hair were driven by the Ellie Saab models look. Very soft and romantic…almost angelic. My vision was executed by incredible Miami fashion make up artist Angel Gabriel.

Patti and Christian planned an incredibly romantic wedding at The Prospect Park Boathouse in Brooklyn, NY (one of our all time favorite venues, by the way!). We are obsessed with the classic details and gorgeous colors that Patti chose! Heather Waraksa Photography is an incredible photographer on the top of our list of faves, so it’s no surprise that we’re obsessed with these gorgeous images! With details like that Jenny Packham gown and those florals by Violet and Verde we are seriously doing the happy dance over here!

prospect-park-boathouse-brooklyn-ny-wedding-1

What made the wedding special and unique? 

Ten years ago Christian sat on the back steps of the Prospect Park Boathouse with one of his 1st grade students during a school trip. He asked Christian if he had kids, if he was married and Christian replied saying no to both, but that maybe in the future that would change. Walking down the aisle and saying our vows to each other just steps away from that spot ten years ago was a reminder of our own individual life journeys, which ultimately led us to each other.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I was with my mom and sister, who were town for a girls wedding planning weekend, and Gabriella in SoHo was our 3rd stop. I knew I wanted a dress that gave a nod to the past while still being contemporary. Feminine, but not frilly. It had to have character and stand out, but more in the details than the dress overall. Jenny Packham’s ‘Nicole’ definitely fit the bill, I felt incredible in it, and when I saw my mom’s and sister’s expressions, I knew it was the one!

What were some touches added to make it personal? 

We met in Brooklyn, fell in love here, and planned to start our lives together in Brooklyn. Half of our guests were from out of town, so it meant so much to us that our family and friends could come see where we live. Plus, you can’t beat Brooklyn in June. Prospect Park was in full bloom, and much to the surprise of our guests, they never imagined such a beautiful place could exist in a big bustling city.

Our wedding was a very intimate affair. Every single person on the guest list played a part in helping us become the people we are today, so as a thank you, we expressed our gratitude in writing on the back of our programs. It was also framed and placed at the entrance. We also made custom tote bags marking that day in Brooklyn for our guests to remember after the wedding.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

The ceremony was by far the most memorable part of the day for us. We felt an overwhelming sense of joy to share the ultimate expression of love and commitment with our family and friends. Seeing the faces of our family and friends as my brother walked me down the aisle to Christian’s father marrying us to cracking up at how nervous we both felt to the moment we kissed and faced the people we loved the most. We felt truly blessed, and it’s a moment we’ll never forget.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

A summertime bike ride from Greenport to Shelter Island by ferry led us to Sunset Beach, where we escaped an afternoon shower over rosé and nicoise salads. The rain stopped and we decided to take a walk on the beach and luckily for us the rain chased all the beach goers away. It was just us, the beach and a proposal waiting to happen. He stopped, got down on one knee, and asked the question I knew I was born to answer with a yes.

Okay ladies! For those of you newly engaged, don’t forget that one of the looming tasks on your to do list is to create a wedding website! This is always so helpful for guests who are traveling for the big day and is also a polite way to share registry information. What we didn’t know when it comes to checking this off your list is that a wedding website can be a lot easier said than done. First off, finding a source for well-designed sites in our aesthetic (read: super pretty) is nigh impossible. Second, finding pretty combined with functionality (read: virtual RSVPs!!!) is even tougher to hunt down. Forget about adding an easy interface so it’s easy to customize–the list is getting way too long! Until now, duh.

May we introduce you to Appy Couple?

WebStack_Confetti_w630px

Appy Couple is a modern wedding website and a coordinating interactive app that lets you manage and share important details of your wedding— everything from RSVPs to travel details for guests, from registry information to virtual champagne toasts and so much—with ease and style. It’s easy. Really, really easy. With an intuitive drag and drop interface, it’s so easy, it practically builds itself. And did I say it was pretty? Very pretty! More like, excited to send to friends to show off your design savvy fabulousness.

XOStack_RusticGlam2_w630px

So, here’s what we love about Appy Couple!

1) It’s a truly all-in-one integrated wedding website and wedding app. Say goodbye to managing a patchwork of difficult to use accounts for various tasks (photo sharing, website creation, email invitations…you get the idea). Appy brings everything together for you so you can easily and elegantly create your wedding website and wedding app once and publish anywhere—on any device.

2) Guest list, RSVP tools and more that will delight you. Here’s one thing I know all brides find to be a major pain – managing their guest list and RSVPs. And this is something Appy Couple makes insanely easy to manage. Here’s how: You can not only upload and manage your entire guest list and RSVPs all from within your app or website, but you can also send personalized emails that match your design. And the most amazing part — Appy sends you push notifications when a guest RSVPs, so you can keep your guest list updated in real time (and guests love not having to snail-mail their RSVPs).

And of course, Appy has everything else that you can think of – travel information, registries, dining options and more – along with those you won’t think of – child care, weather, directions, local services among others.

3) Then of course, there are all the fun features that you’ll LOVE (and where guests can also join in) that make Appy Couple magical.

Not only can you add your photos, video and story but so can your friends. That’s something no one else lets you do. Your friends can not only add pictures of you directly from their phone but also edit them and add filters so they look good. Just for fun, Appy also includes thoughtful digital keepsakes: Virtual champagne toasts, a digital guestbook, an iTunes Playlist to which your guests can contribute – these are native app features that allow your guests to share in your wedding journey from Day One.

BuildsItself_w630px

Not that it was a hard decision, but are you ready to get started?

It’s easy.

You can choose any design created by Appy’s award-winning design team and pay a one-time fee of $35 (for any design from the Boutique Collection) and you’ll be ready to go. Their oh-so-romantic Luxury Collection, featuring exclusive Carolina Herrera designs inspired by House prints and décor, is a one-time fee of $69.

Remember, you can always change the design at any time and as many times as you’d like for free – and your website and app will update immediately and automatically. How amazing is that?!

Emily tells us:

Max and I met during law school orientation. We fell in love over text books and strong black coffee and helped each other survive that difficult first year of law school. Four years later, we live in New York City, balancing our busy big-law work schedules with weekend walks on the Highline, brunch dates and trips to peruse our favorite book stores.  Max proposed in our apartment on a quiet Saturday morning last November.  True to our laid-back style, he popped the question with a cup of coffee and an engagement ring. I said yes to both.

Happiest New Year! As you settle into 2015, we thought it would be fun to bring you Phil and Brittany’s New Year Newlywed photography session shot Kayla Coleman Photography. We absolutely adore the cozy real life feeling of these images, and think this is such a wonderful time in your life to document your start! Here’s to new beginnings, darlings!

How the couple met:

Brittany & Phil met through Phil’s younger sister/Brittany’s best friend. Brittany and his sister had become good friends the first few weeks of college. Numerous meetings over four years lead to nothing more than minimal friendship between the two. Fast forward a few years where they were reunited when a big group of mutual friends ended up at dinner together. Brittany and Phil sat across the table from each other and after a few hours of witty banter they were both infatuated. Against all logic, the two started a relationship which endured one year of long distance and two years of living together before finally sealing the deal.

The proposal:

They were vacationing in Northern Michigan which was one of their absolute favorite places to go together. They had rented a house with Brittany’s whole family and one of the days Phil kept pestering Brittany to go out on the boat with him to go fishing. After he told her to take her baseball hat off and put on a skirt, Brittany was definitely skeptical about said “fishing trip”. When they pulled the boat out of the channel and into Lake Michigan the water became extremely rough. Brittany was becoming more and more weary of this fishing trip but when Phil put on one of their favorite songs and came stumbling over to her, he knelt down on one knee and asked her to marry her– in 4 foot waves no less! She of course said yes and the two celebrated with champagne while watching wind surfers, and calling family and friends. When they returned to the house her family was waiting with a celebratory engagement dinner and more champagne. One of their favorite vacation spots quickly turned into a very special place for them and later became the place they said “I do”.
