Nikole and Rocco met when Nikole was about to graduate high school. Although time and distance got in the way, they were reunited during Thanksgiving weekend of 2012. Rocco was living in Miami and Nikole was settled in New York. But, anything can happen in three weeks! Rocco soon moved to New York and they were engaged just six months later. He proposed in what would be their new apartment. “Nikole was in such shock that she barely looked at the ring!” says Rocco. The couple spent nine months of their fourteen month engagement planning a romantic outdoor wedding in Dover, Florida. “I had a very specific vision, I wanted everything to be a little different and at times quirky like me!” says Nikole. The couple found their Cross Creek Ranch and barn venue through a picture on Pinterest! “Soon after, I found out that my fiance Rocco had grown up a mile away from the ranch. We then knew it was meant to be,” says Nikole. Black lanterns, rose petals, a white aisle runner and a romantic exposed wood arch covered in pink and burgundy flowers were used as accents for the couple’s sunset ceremony. A large willow tree was the main decor. Ninety people gathered to help Nikole and Rocco celebrate their special day. Under a fairy tale theme, the reception was decorated in neutral hues accented by blush pink, burgundy and red, with string lighting hung from the ceiling. “I wanted everything to look and feel like a romantic, ethereal, enchanted fairytale,” says Nikole.

To say we, the team of Lovely NY, were excited to visit the new Blushington location at the Parker Meridian in NY is an understatement. We were giddy, thrilled, and oh-so-in-need of a little beauty refresher. For those of you who haven’t heard of Blushington this is the story. The idea behind Blushington came to Stephi (Founder & CEO) when she realized there just wasn’t a great place in LA to get her makeup done. So she decided to create one that was affordable and convenient, that also offered more natural looking makeup applied by super talented makeup artists. Having worked in the couture fashion world, with some PR and marketing experience, Stephi knew exactly what it would take to create something truly unique. She pulled together the ultimate dream team, and Blushington was on its way. With locations in West Hollywood, Newport Beach, Topanga, Dallas, and now New York it is clear that her idea was a good one! We highly recommend them for all of your beauty needs. Check out a full list of their services and pricing here. They offer classes, they will do your wedding make-up wherever you are, or even host a pretty party with you! Thanks for the wonderful evening and for making us all feel so fetch!
Aimee and Drew scrapped their original plans to get married in upstate NY when the planning stress started to overwhelm the joy of their big day. They ended up in Iceland and we have got to say the results seem to be blissful and magical and perfcet! Check out their tiny church next to the world famous waterfall Skogafoss, the black sand beach, the waterfall, the rainbow and the Northern Lights.
