project wed: the New York Weddings Event 2011

Last night we had the pleasure of mingling with over 600 of New York City's chicest brides at the New York Wedding event! Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea, the event showcased the city's premier wedding vendors, including some of our favorite clients.

As an event sponsor, Taylor Creative provided two fabulous seating areas at the center of the space, in addition to a 24' by 12' bar and a scattering of our gorgeous Glass Highboys. Brides-to-be enjoyed a spot to sit, chat and compare notes on caterers, planners and of course, amazing rental options.

The night's biggest draw was the pair of crackling fireplaces we displayed on our Chrome Nesting Tables. Situated against a wall of Shimmer Frames, these scene-stealers were the center of attention, providing brides with a new vision for their weddings as well as the perfect backdrop for an impromptu photo-op!

See the start to finish event photos below - from the beginnings of load in to the finished product. The amazing final shots are courtesy of one of our favorite photographers, Roey Yohai!

Behind the Scenes: The new purple Lounge Modular collection and Boheme Stools are some of the first pieces to be placed at the event.

The Transformation: Later that night the collection brings a rich burst of color to the show floor.

Behind the Scenes: Our white Social Banquettes and Tyler Chairs create an intimate seating area. In the background, you can see our amazing delivery team setting up the rest of our pieces!

The Transformation: While the collection may have looked stark by the light of day, at night the luxurious ultra-suede banquettes look stunning paired with our Reflection Side Tables.

a glowing affair

While we've been lucky enough to take part in a number of fantastic weddings over the years, we recently helped create one of the most elaborately constructed affairs we'd seen in a long time.

The lavish wedding celebration was held on Ellis Island and was meticulously planned and designed by two of our favorite clients, Olivier Cheng Catering and Van Vliet and Trap. The two transformed the venue with glowing décor and featured a beautiful arrangement of our round Hourglass Tables and clear Ghost Chairs to light up the room.

Given the island's restrictions on bringing products into the venue, our crew only had two hours to unload, place and perfect furnishings for over 350 guests! This would be a massive undertaking for any vendor but with everyone involved working in tandem, we were able to pull it off without a hitch.

We field many questions from clients but some of the most frequent concerns are regarding our delivery staff - many brides are worried about their rentals arriving on time and in good condition. At Taylor Creative we are known for our white-glove customer service! From order placement and product quality to our amazing delivery team, our experience providing rentals for A-list events over the last seven years enables our crew to handle anything and everything, even an event like this.

Thanks to a video captured by the amazing folks over at Christian Oth Studio, you now have a rare opportunity to see our team in action! Click here to watch the real-time clip of the event execution.

the modern "i do"

The venue search can be one of the most overwhelming aspects of planning a wedding. For most brides, the type of venue you choose will set the overall tone of your wedding - and if you don't have a set vision in mind, this process can quickly become a stressful one.

While traditional ballrooms can offer you an elegant, traditional (and easy!) option - they often are inclusive of chairs, dinnerware, catering etc. - we just love the idea of a modern loft wedding. A blank open space can be intimidating but it also gives you the freedom to create exactly the wedding you want, from the type of chairs you sit in to the design and layout of the space. It's also great for coordinating a color scheme - a neutral space works beautifully with any palette.

One of our favorite loft venues is The Glass Houses. Located on the 21st floor of the Chelsea Arts Building, the space offers magnificent views of the Hudson River and midtown Manhattan and is the perfect setting for all types of events.

Check out the photos below for our inspirations on transforming a plain space into a spectacular event!

The space, gorgeous on its own, has great natural light and floor-to-ceiling windows

The Rehearsal Dinner: Whether you're a group of ten or 110, The Glass Houses is the perfect venue for a rehearsal dinner. The space is ideal for long banquet-style seating and without the constraints of the day-of details, couples can play up different styles and colors. The photos below show some options for breaking the mold.

Our Glossy Black Bellini chairs are a chic seating option for banquet dining.

Colored crystal chandeliers take the place of an over-the-top centerpiece - perfect for brides who want a wow-factor without taking up valuable table space.

The Engagement Party: New Yorkers love to throw a party and brides around the globe are constantly recreating their loft-party vibe. Kick-start your engagement with the bash of the year - our sleek lounge pieces and ultra cool accessories will guarantee a good time for all.

One of my favorite lounges (created and photographed by Ron Wendt Design) is elegant and stylish at the same time - the mix of textures and fabrics add detail to the space without being fussy.

Your groom will love the ultra modern look of this understated lounge. The Hudson pieces are one of our favorite loft collections - add some highboys and a bar and instantly create your own private club.

Bridal Showers and Wedding Receptions: Just because it's on the intimate side, don't rule out The Glass Houses for your reception - the venue can actually hold 150 for a seated dinner. For smaller scale celebrations, like bridal showers or luncheons, section off a part of the room for dining and use the remaining part to create a luxurious bridal lounge.

Elegant enough for ladies who lunch yet timeless enough to satisfy a modern taste, the Glossy White Bellini Chairs and Cube Tables offer a stunningly simple setting for a girls-only get-together.

For those who want the tabletop to capture guests' attention, our clear Victoria Ghost chairs keep the look clean and allows the focus to remain on the design.
