Hill Country Glam at Mae’s Ridge
Daniel and Brittany’s love story began much like a romantic comedy—at a rooftop party above a noodle factory in Chinatown. They talked the night away while enjoying the incredible views of Manhattan and Brooklyn, and they haven’t looked back since. After 10 years, Daniel proposed to Brittany in the fall of 2019 by tying the ring around their miniature poodle, Stella. Brittany came home to the surprise of a lifetime, Daniel on one knee and an engagement dinner with all of their loved ones at their favorite restaurant, Bowery Meat Company.
Like many engaged couples, Daniel and Brittany had to push their wedding date due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They took the delay as a gift in disguise because it changed their wedding season to spring and inspired the bright addition of fuchsia to the sand and saddle brown color palette. The weather was perfect, guests were vaccinated, and the outdoor venue made their special day safe and enjoyable for everyone.
The wedding design inspiration was hill country meets NYC glam, so naturally, the couple fell in love with Mae’s Ridge because of its rolling hills and modern aesthetic. Brittany’s goal was to marry her love of NYC sophistication with her country roots.
Daniel and Brittany’s favorite part of their wedding day was after they were pronounced husband and wife and they walked down the aisle hand in hand as a married couple for the first time. Another highlight was the surprise sparkler cannon exit! Such a magical way to end the night.
