Shop Upstate NY Wedding Stephanie Karvellas and Derek

Stephanie Karvellas’ destination wedding at her Cedar Lakes Estate, a luxury custom NY wedding venue located in the heart of the Hudson Valley!

Shop Upstate NY Wedding Stephanie Karvellas Bridesmaids Groomsmen

Cedar Lakes Estate, a luxury custom wedding venue, was founded by entrepreneurial sisters Stephanie and Lisa Karvellas after recognizing the raw natural beauty of their parents’ 500-acre former summer camp in the heart of the Hudson Valley.

On a beautiful day in June, Stephanie herself got married at the Estate. As the owner and site coordinator, she was given carte blanche to host the most spectacular wedding imaginable. After building a team of the industry’s best, including Mindy Weiss as the planner, her vision came to life and the wedding was truly second to none.

About Stephanie, Derek and the Wedding:

Derek Baynton and Stephanie met Memorial Day Weekend 2012 in a share house in Montauk…not your typical love story. 25 singles in a beach house seemed like a recipe for disaster, but those who don’t believe in love at first sight, their housemates will tell you otherwise.

Since Stephanie spends all of her days planning other people’s weddings at her Estate, she wanted her wedding to feel different, and custom to what her and Derek care most about: extraordinary food, masterful cocktails, and creating an unforgettable experience for their beloved friends and family. Luckily she also had access to the industry’s best, who all couldn’t wait to make this wedding a showcase of their best work as well.

They held her ceremony at the 85-year old deck overlooking the lake and nestled under a pine tree sky. Their first look was when she walked down the aisle and Derek couldn’t contain his genuine tears. It was romantic and intimate yet dramatic and breathtaking.

Furthermore, she wore a backless Ghalia Lahav lace gown and looked ethereal against a 100-foot pine tree backdrop with thousands of candles flickering in the branches. The bridesmaids all wore floor length nude gowns of their choice. And, the groomsmen wore custom slim-fit midnight blue tuxes.

Stephanie and Derek offered three different cocktail hours in three locations.

The first one on the bluestone patio surrounding the infinity pool overlooking the lake, with a Montauk vibe. They offered lobster rolls, fresh sashimi cut to order, classic rum punches and live beachy music.

Moreover, the second, on the mountain top with views that span for miles, a live doo wop band (the same one who was present at their proposal under the Washington Square Park Monument). Plus, a variety of specialty cocktails all made with fresh pressed juices, herbs from the on-site garden, homemade bitters, and local craft spirits – all shaken by professional mixologists from NYC.

In addition, the final cocktail hour was in the open air pavilion with a massive stone fire pit. Decorated with tufted leather couches, cigar bars, cow hyde rugs and antler chandeliers, the men (and ladies!) enjoyed dirty martinis and small-batch whiskey flights.

Finally, the reception space was masterfully lit and draped with romantic, airy fabric and lace. Elaborate, wild green and white centerpieces hung from the ceiling.

A Wedding Vow to NYC: “I take you, New York City…”

Shop NYC Wedding Vow to New York City

Wedding Vow to NYC: I take you, New York City, to be my lawful partner in crime, to have and to hold from this day forward. I promise to always cherish you; and if I do that, you’ll surely do the same for me…

Shop NYC Wedding Vow to New York City

We invited our followers to write a Wedding Vow to New York City.

Charles Dorneles’ Wedding Vow was the one selected to be featured! It portrays our deepest love and respect for this amazing city called New York City!


I take you, New York City, to be my lawful partner in crime, to have and to hold from this day forward.

I promise to always cherish you; and if I do that, you’ll surely do the same for me, even though every year you still put me through hell during winter (with bitter cold) and summer (with excruciating, humid heat) time.

I accept you in good and bad times; actually, worse times, considering the fact you have one of the world’s worst traffics ever and I will spend a lot of time just commuting. But, I’ll just take this time to be present and thankful for everything!

I also pledge to be with you in richness and in poorness. In fact, I’ve got plenty of money now, but, if I’m not careful, I can go bankrupt with all your expensive clothing, restaurants and your fancy lifestyle.

And, above all, I will always love and honor you, simply because I know there’s no other city like you. You have all I need to have a long, extraordinary and fulfilled life – from your breathtaking skyline that makes my eyes sparkle to your glorious green parks. You are the most intriguing city in the world and you offer me not only different cultural backgrounds with secret Off-Broadway shows and the underground music scene, but you also give me to-die-for food from all over the world.

Living with you is a unique and priceless experience and, yes, I admit, you have some “many” issues, but none of them can overcome your superiority and grandioseness.

You inspire me and I intend to live with you until death do us part. In truth, until death do “me” part, once you will live forever. Thankfully, to all human race!

I. Love. You.


For Wedding inspiration, take a look at these fantastic celebrations.

Martina Campos and Rafael Quintella are both Brazilians, born in São Paulo. They met in the gorgeous Brazilian island of Fernando de Noronha through friends in common. However, the “flirting scene” took place in the Big Apple, where Rafael had been living for a couple of years.

In no time, Martina transferred to NY through the company that she worked for and moved in with Rafael. After running the New York Marathon a few months later, Rafael proposed at the finish line! Surely a surprise for her!

They immediately chose New York City to celebrate the wedding. This way, their friends and family could feel a little bit of all the excitement and affection that they both have for the city.

They wanted a party where they could show what “being a New Yorker” feels like. Therefore, they avoided all of the typical Brazilian wedding peculiarities like: the Bem-Casados – a typical sweet given to every guest at the end of the party, a Brazilian DJ, flowers scattered throughout the entire party. They decided to play around with the New York characteristics.

They left the church in a vintage yellow taxi cab, appetizers were all typical dishes such as oysters, dumplings and hotdogs and the furniture had a cool vintage style. Plus, the DJs were the same that were seen playing in the best nightclubs in town.

This is what they organized:

Thursday night the couple hosted their guests for drinks in the speakeasy bar in Chinatown, Apothéke. It’s one of those hidden spots that only after walking in, you realize how cool it is. Very NY-style.

On Friday, they had a formal cocktail at the rooftop of Hotel Americano. After all, the New York skyline is definitely one of the highlights of our beautiful city!

The wedding ceremony happend in the “Church of Saint Paul the Apostle”, located in the Upper West Side. After leaving the church, guests headed to the party in those touristy double deckers buses. It was unexpected and surely very fun!

Lastly, the party happened at Cedar Lake, a dance & art space in Chelsea. The neighborhood is known for being the home to the coolest art galleries in New York.

As we all know, Brazilians are definitely one of the liveliest people in wedding parties. So, everyone was there until sunrise, evidently.

See below all the professionals hired by Martina for her NYC wedding:

This post is for the adventurous, confident, modern and specially effortlessly elegant gals out there!

We know that buying jewelry is much more that only “a random shopping moment”. Buying jewelry is a memorable experience or, at least, it’s supposed to be!

When we work with our clients and take them to their Private Jewelry & Consultation with the most exclusive designers in New York, we definitely make it an unforgettable experience.

If you’re a guy, and your lady sounds pretty much like the description above, continue reading too!

Hueb is a Brazilian jewelry brand that started over 3 generations ago, by a strong, entrepreneurial woman called Fadua Hueb. Fadua believed that a jewelry is surely a statement piece for a woman, but it should compliment her personal style instead of defining it.

The brand has a clear inspiration in Brazil’s natural beauty and energy. In addition, they work with some of the most skilled artisans today. Stones range from high-grade diamonds, to the stunning Brazilian gems.

They are currently working with a unique mix of collections. Here a few:

Mirage, that uses stones like emeralds, rubies, tanzanites and sapphires creating an unexpected mix.

White Dreams showers the pieces with diamonds, while Bon Voyage pairs these diamonds with perfectly formed pearls creating an adventurous collection.

If you adore the Renaissance period, the Labyrinth Collection will definitely keep you in a constant state of “awe”.

But, if you’re connected to nature, the Apus Collection is inspired by the Amazonian bird’s vibrant plumage.

Last, but surely not least, the Gala Collection. It will offer you a journey into the graceful world of ballerinas, with a mix of special diamonds and pearls.

After all, “Luxury should be inspiring and celebratory, not intimidating”, as the Hueb Founders explain!  As we said, perfect for the New York women.

Once again, if you want to learn about our Jewelry Shopping & Consultation Services, have private sessions with the brand’s founders and have an adventurous journey into the Jewelry universe, contact us!

Alchemy (AL-KER-MI) noun: Any magical power or process of transforming a common substance into a substance of value.

Alchemy Produx was created by the Australian duo, Sara and Tristan. These artisan candles are all hand-made with 100{c8399be91965ff06a5fa23750b49beaf0bc09e4b1c94b50d52f75c5d1635bbfd} natural soy wax.

“It was five years ago when experimenting with soy wax lead us to this accidental combination in our backgrounds of Fashion Design and Chemistry to create these unique candles. This unlikely combination led to the beginning of ‘Alchemy Produx’, a fusing of science and designer home wares.”

All Alchemy candles are individually hand-poured into some pretty cool chemistry glassware. Moreover, they use different formats like beakers and conical flasks. Plus, they are all made to order through their Melbourne studio.

There are obvious minimalist and industrial trends in their work that inspire these small batch candles and the Alchemy team to live by the mantra “Less is More”. And, we love it! Less is More is definitely one of our mantras too!

The good news? When we were writing this post for the 1st time, they were still to launch the candles in New York City.

Now, you can find them in 3 different locations. Therefore, we all have a chance to get to know them better!

We want one of each, actually two of each! Hum, maybe three…?

Also, if you’re also not sure where to host your event, the Rooftop at The NoMad Hotel is a spectacular place and will certainly “awe” your guests.

And lastly, are starting to organize your NY private event and can’t seam to find time? Or, are you planning a corporate event and need assistance? Contact our experts and see how we can cater to your needs!
