Charleston Weddings Hits the Big Apple Come along as we check out New York’s Bridal Market and so much more!
written by Melissa Bigner
I’m not sure how to sum up a trip that opens with a cocktail party in a high-rise with a view of the Chrysler Building featuring a coterie of some of the country’s top wedding industry folk. (The shindig was co-hosted with us by planner Tara Guérard of Soirée and Julie Sabitino of Stylish Bride, and attended by blogger Vané Broussard of Brooklyn Bride, insider reporter Anne Chertoff, tastemaker Ceci Johnson of CeCi New York, gown designer Carol Hannah Whitfield, photographer Corbin Gurkin, Romona Keveza and Kristin Newman Designs’ Lindsey Nowak, to name a scant handful). And how to relay a trip that wraps with myself and my The Wedding Row partner, Della MacNicholas, sitting across from Carolina Herrera’s family while the icon herself presented 30 new gowns for Fall 2013? How about we leave it up to the photos.
Use the links below to see the story of our weekend covering the New York Bridal Market, where designers showed their newest collections, where we scoured the showrooms for the hottest trends, and where buyers like Charleston’s Jodi Moylanmet with teams from Jenny Packham and Marchesa to bring the gowns to Holy City shops.
Check out the newest stunning gowns from the country’s top designers.
