New York City weddings always have a certain chic air about them. This couple’s Winter nuptials certainly lived up to that distinction!

Justine and David were married in January in the Big Apple. The bride and her wedding party primped and prepared at the luxurious Plaza Hotel. The groom and his groomsmen donned their tuxedos at the Hilton Midtown. The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful St.Ignatius Loyola Church. With the reception following at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.

From the shots getting ready to the magnificent photos from the ceremony and then the lovely Winter landscape images in Central Park…We love being able to glimpse and a snapshot of the joy and love shared by the bride and groom on this day!

We love fashion and awards season! Celebrities on the red carpet always shine and inspire. Brides can find influence from couture gowns donned during the awards season in wedding gowns from the collections of Anne Barge. Enjoy some of our favorite suggestions from this year’s 2014 Golden Globe Awards…

“New Girl” actress Zooey Deschanel would look divine in our blush toned Beloved gown. Flowing silk chiffon with delicate sheer embroidery is perfection, don’t you agree?

Naomi Watts glittered at this year’s Golden Globes. We would suggest our shimmering Black Label collection style Garbo to show off her svelte figure!

TV Actress Kaley Cuoco loves feminine details. We think she would make a ‘big bang’ of an impression in the silk jacquard Giselle gown from the Anne Barge collection.

Giselle & Kaley

Movie and TV actress, Kate Mara, looks gorgeous in a retro plunging neckline. The jeweled Swanson gown from the Black Label collection would be fabulous for her décolletage and skin tone!
