Planning a Wedding in NYC Spring 2010
Every girl dreams of her wedding day. Except you. Luckily, we did the research for you.
Blooms for Every Style
For a quaint, country approach, turn to Poppies & Posies. Partners Sierra Yaun and Juliet Totten arrange classic stems (poppies, lily of the valley) in wooden crates, vintage tobacco tins, and perfume bottles, and add unexpected elements like antique brooches.

today we'd like to introduce you to melissa (missy) murphy, the creative heart and soul behind missy photography. one of the parts of this industry i enjoy the most is meeting and getting to know all of the talented and creative vendors in new york city.
when the opportunity came up to ask her a few questions and get to know her a bit better we didn't hesitate. check it out and learn a bit more about her personality, style, and aspirations.
Name: Missy (aka Melissa or Mel depending on the person and their mood and the moment) Murphy
Location: The Big Apple
Company: Missy Photography
Who inspires you? I wouldn't say there is one but rather a collection of inspirers. I am inspired by other amazing photographers, old paintings (especially portraits), antique postcards of lovers, nature, beautiful things, an adorable couple deeply in love...
What is your personal aesthetic? My personal aesthetic is vintage/antique, romantic with a kick in the pants, embracing colors, and definitely eclectic.
If you could get married again would you style it differently? Ooooo, that's a tough one. I would a little bit but only at the reception. My Hunny and I were married so young, 22 and 21 and our entire wedding budget was $5000. Crazy, huh? Well, half of the budget went to photography (of course) so my entire wedding day bridal look was around $350. Even though it was almost seven years ago I still LOVE my aesthetic and think back on our day so fondly.
What accessory could you not live without? I found these gold hued glass studs in Idaho while visiting relatives and I am tempted to just glue them on permanently.
Favorite beauty product? Benefits Dr. Feel Good. It works miracles.
What is one thing people would be surprised to find out about you? I crave big city life and thrive in it but I deeply desire the following pets: a couple goats, a pot belly pig, and a herd of ducks...just to mention a few.
Do you have any new ventures you'd like to share with us? I do! I am crazy excited about taking on bridal styling (this can also include groom and bridal party). My clients can choose the level of styling they desire. I am having a blast and it is something I always had the knack for. My styling goal is to achieve my clients' 'day of' aesthetic and help them look their best.
Other fun facts, jokes, etc you can share with us? I am obsessed with my Blackberry's Dictionary Word of the Day application. I would like to say I enjoy deep brooding books the best, but I am a sucker for a good mystery. In my humble opinion, The Golden Girls is the funniest sitcom ever invented.
there are so many wedding publications out there and they're all great in their own respects. we've recently been lucky enough to be a part of brides magazine and we're just beyond excited to have their support! the ladies over there work really hard to produce a helpful magazine with fresh concepts and vendors. we are thrilled to have our recent wedding shoot posted on brides.com today! whoohoo!
