Bride Spotlight: Brooke

Brooke is one of the kindest brides I have ever met. Something I’ll always remember about Brooke is how special and close the bond is that she has with her mother. They get along wonderfully and Brooke had complete trust in her mother’s vision for the wedding.

Her mother was also one of my favorite co-conspirators. Not only is she the ultimate generous host, but she challenged me to bring her vision to life–the sole request was that the event be done in an array of shades of pink. We employed everything from a blushing light rose to a dramatic, bold magenta.

The reception was held in the ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria, and the main decor element was fountains placed all around the room. The fountains were covered in a symphony of roses and were used because I loved what a fountain represents: hope and prosperity. (The concept of the fountains on the table became one of my most copied elements.)

One of the most touching parts of this wedding, for me, was seeing Brooke’s father get emotional as he walked his daughter down the aisle. I designed the chuppah to feel like a jewelry box. We covered it in roses and pearls and used fabric in shades of cream and white.

This wedding was such a joy for me to design; I was thrilled when her sister got engaged and I had a chance to work with this amazing family again. Who knows…? Maybe you’ll get to see the details of that wedding some time soon.

Pink is one of the most requested colors for weddings. What is your favorite color and why?

    Dear Preston,
    I love yellow. It cheers me up when I feel down. It’s great for spring, summer and fall and there are even flowers which come in those colors all three seasons!

    Your work is amazing and I hope to meet you someday! I also wish I had as much talent in me as you have in your pinky finger!

    Cheers!

    Hello, I’m a Spanish girl. I just discovered your amazing work and it’s wonderful. GOOD JOB!!!

    So by “favorite color” you mean for a wedding or in general?

    For a wedding, white and yellow, white and black, white and pink but any color can look good. In general, my favorite color is red, but I love all kinds of colors.
