Chelsea and Will in The Knot NYC, Spring/Summer 2012

Chelsea and Will's Pratt House wedding featured in the The Knot's Spring/Summer 2012 NYC Magazine! I know I say this about nearly everyone but really Chelsea and Will are one of my favorite couples ever! Their wedding was so classic and sweet!

My absolute favorite were the mahjong tiles that served as escort cards. Each were engraved with the person's name and table number and displayed with real mahjong tiles. This was a fantastic, fresh, creative way to incorporate Will's culture and background into the NYC UES wedding!
