When Nicole and Michal got engaged, it was a full-circle moment! These two started dating in college, and years later, Michal proposed on campus where they met. From the moment they started planning their wedding at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens, Nicole had a vision—a day filled with friends and family with a look and feel that was fresh, airy, and whimsical with a modern twist.
Big Day Bridal Style
Nicole’s search for The Dress led her to Kleinfeld, where she fell for her exquisite mermaid Pnina Tornai wedding gown. Made of sheer, beaded fabric that echoes the look of delicate lace, it both followed Nicole’s silhouette and had the light, airy feel to which she was drawn. She then added a cathedral-length veil to add to the drama!
The Sparkling Finishing Touch
To top off her bridal look, Nicole visited us at our New York bridal accessory boutique. She planned to wear her hair in long, loose curls and chose a stunning wedding head piece from our Couture Collection! Encrusted with thousands of tiny, handset crystals, Nicole’s crystal rose headpiece echoed her gown’s elegant dazzle and the day’s aesthetic.
Married in Modern Style
Blue velvet chairs and white ceremony flowers filled the Park Chateau’s bright and airy chapel. Nicole’s bridesmaids were super chic, too—instead of dresses, they made a fabulous fashion statement in jackets and pants. Even Nicole and Michal’s bulldog, Maddie, was dressed for the occasion in a pale blue tutu.
Whimsical with a Modern Twist
Filled with wonderful, lighthearted details, the Chateau’s ballroom was transformed to reflect Nicole’s vision of airy, modern whimsy. A champagne cart and modern lounge with a neon sign welcomed guests to relax, and a sweet neon sign accented the mantle behind the couple’s sweetheart table. Blue velvet chairs sat around tables covered in white linens, candlelight, and suspended floral arrangements. Meanwhile, a darling donut wall and a custom dance floor bearing Nicole and Michal’s monogram beckoned everyone to have a great time.
