Nina and Russell's NY Wedding

My husband and I had the great pleasure of attending a SECOND wedding reception for our good friends Nina and Russell! We felt so fortunate to be included in both the L.A. wedding and the NY party. If only they would move back to New York, life would be perfect!
Nina and Russell had their reception in a converted old brownstone in the West Village. A beautiful staircase circled a hollowed-out center, and you could see up three stories from the ground floor. Each level had little rooms off of the stairs, all eclectically decorated with a mixture of Asian design elements and old Hollywood glamour. The vintage New York postcards were in lieu of a guest book, and guests were asked to write a postcard and stuff it in a vintage mailbox for later viewing. We, of course, chose a postcard of the Williamsburg Bridge.
Nina's dress was a long black gown designed by Monique Lhullier, and her lovely earrings are a vintage item borrowed from her wonderful friend Charlotte.
Congratulations, Nina and Russell! And thank you for another great party! Keep 'em coming!


  1. Charlotte, I have been searching all over for this black dress that Nina bought. Is there any chance you can help me ask her for the style number? I don't know how to identify it at the store. Thank you! Pls email me at weyzhan@gmail.com
