Melissa and Vincent

Wednesday, July 20, 2011
















When an art director and a style director for Condé Nast online decide to tie the knot, you can be sure their wedding will be nothing short of chic. Melissa and Vincent were married at Brooklyn's Montauk Club, and their flapper-inspired nupitals are the perfect modern reinvention of a speakeasy celebration!

The pair designed their elegant invitation suite featuring calligraphy by Tara Jones; they were letterpressed by Enormous Champion. Melissa always made the darling ring pillow out of vintage state handkerchiefs.

The bride wore an Amy Kuschel gown and Sara Gabriel feather fascinator, both purchased at Manhattan's Gabriella Bridal Salon, and carried a bouquet of ranunculus, magnolias and dusty miller by Nicolette Camille.

Montauk Club's chef, Mark Usewicz catered the event, while cheese plates were designed by Saxelby Cheesemongers. One Girl Cookies created an assortment of cupcakes and classic black and white cookies, while the grooms cake was baked by Park Slope's Blue Sky Bakery. The newlyweds hired New York music conservatory alumni to provide a string quartet soundtrack to their wedding ceremony (as a music school grad myself, this is the mark of one fantastic couple), and let their friends DJ the reception.

Melissa credits day of coordinator Christine Viola of Exquisite Affairs Productions for the smooth-running celebration, and I have to thank Weddings by Two for allowing me to feature Melissa and Vincent's gorgeous affair, first spotted on 100 Layer Cake!
