Caroline Constas designed her own gown for her classic New York wedding

Caroline dressed her bridesmaids in some of her brand’s most popular designs. “They were wearing some of our best-selling gowns from our selection – I chose dusty rose, champagne and silver gray shades for each of my friends, she said .

The bride described her ceremony as “imperfect”. When her father died on , she asked her mother and brother to walk down the aisle in her place – not realizing that not all three were a good fit. “It brought incredible comedy before the ceremony, took the stress off and allowed us to have fun,” she says. Her cousin Luc—the first member of her family to meet Will—officially.

After they took their vows, Rina Ketty’s “J’Attendrai” started playing as they walked back down the aisle. Music from a bygone era continued for the rest of the evening, first when guests migrated to the terrace for the reception. “It was a fusion of jazz, like ‘The Sheik of Araby’ and ‘Je Suis Seul Ce Soir,'” recalls Caroline. Upon arrival at Gemma, the restaurant where the reception was held, appetizers of Mexican pizza, grilled cheese and crab cakes were served, while live cigar rolls attracted a curious crowd. The guests then sat down to dinner on long white candlesticks decorated with white flowers, where they ate cacio e pepe – what Caroline and Will ordered that evening Dish they got engaged.

As an avid baker, desserts are very important to Caroline. “I’ve found that very few wedding cakes are truly delicious, so I decided to only serve cakes that guests would remember,” she says. She teamed up with Charlotte Neuville to create two separate cakes of her dreams. The first was an almond cake topped with calla lilies in white syrup, buttercups and sage green eucalyptus leaves, while the second was a lemon cake covered in a white and blush printed calico of Caroline’s own design. The third is a chocolate cake from La Tulipe in Mount Kisco.

The couple also offered custom ice cream flavors from Katayushka Melo, a Hudson-based cultural cream company they stumbled upon on a spontaneous trip upstate. Caroline said: “She made and served corn jalapeños for Will’s Southwestern roots and rose and black sesame halva for my Mediterranean roots.”

They The first dance was “O What a Thrill” by Mavericks. “It’s soulful, Western, and the title says it all, because being together is the greatest excitement we’ve ever had,” the bride said of her choice. “I think that’s why we chose each other: we both wanted the excitement from a partner.” Their friends and family soon joined them – and didn’t leave – as Caroline and Will Dance to your own curated playlist. “I was thinking about music all the time,” Caroline recalls. “It’s one of the things that guests comment on the most, how much they love the soundtrack we play.”

A few months later, Caroline says she won’t be changing a thing about the wedding . “It represents us perfectly,” she said. “Fun, playful, sentimental — and not too serious.”
