The Madison Hotel Wedding

Nothing beats the conservatory at The Madison Hotel wedding space for a botanical bride and groom!

I first met Sam & Yuri at another couple of mine’s, Alex & Jonathan who had a Chic & Whimsical Renault Winery wedding, last year. Yuri was a bridesmaid! But I truly got to know these sweet human beings at their Summer Engagement Session at Cross Estate Gardens. The two were absolute naturals in front of the camera! Immediately I knew their wedding was going to be flawless and heartfelt!

Love Story

Sam & Yuri’s story began on a Friday night in the summer of 2021. The two matched on Hinge and within the first two hours of their conversation, they met in person to have their first date! “Ever since I met Sam, my life has never been the same,” says Yuri, “I have been the happiest I have ever been and I feel incredibly fulfilled.”

From then on, they knew they were perfect for each other. When asked what they love about each other, Sam said, “I love how much fun we have together even when we’re doing absolutely nothing. I love how Yuri and I can talk about nothing and everything whenever we want. I love how much Yuri makes me laugh and how much we have in common.”

One and half years later, the sweet couple vacationed to Antigua and Sam popped the question! Yuri fondly recalls from that special day, “It was so romantic; there were rose petals, candles, a private chef and footage all captured via drone and video!”

The Wedding

The beautiful couple wed inside the garden oasis at the gorgeous The Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ before breaking it down on the dance floor to R&B and Hip Hop (the couple’s fave!) with friends and family from near and far. Yuri wore a gorgeous off-the-shoulder gown while her bridesmaids wore a wholesome hue of blush to complement their Gloria’s Florist flowers. Sam and his groomsmen sported navy tuxedos from The Black Tux that pulled the whole party together. I was obsessed with Yuri’s bouquet and Sam’s boutonniere which featured lily-of-the-valley florals.

The conservatory setting was airy and breathtaking. Pops of white floral peeked through greenery, plants were hung from above, and gorgeous tablescapes awaited each guest – the scene was straight from a movie. My favorite piece was the stunning floral wall from AG Walls of Beauty. These faux flowers backdrops are a fantastic alternative for couples looking to add an affordable, showstopping arrangement and not worrying about flowers drooping!

Congratulations Sam & Yuri and thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day. Scroll down to see their picture-perfect day!
