{CUE Real Wedding}: Elizabeth + Robert

New York City is a destination favored by all – whether you come for a vacation, Broadway show or to live here. There’s also no doubt that many newlyweds choose this unique city as their wedding destination. Many dream of venues around Central Park or at prestigious hotels, but what if the girls at CUE were to say that you could find just as amazing of a space right outside of Manhattan? Newlyweds Elizabeth and Robert surely found a hidden gem when selecting their ceremony venue. Located at Brooklyn Bridge Park, they had the city itself for a back drop as well as the river surrounding it. Add a gorgeous day, friends and family plus a hotspot called reBar for your reception and you’ll have one of the best days of your lives!

A Mother of a Day

We here at CUE would like to take the time to wish all of the Moms out there a very happy Mother’s Day.
I LOVE being a mom.  Every day I look at my little girl and wonder, “what happened to my baby?” and, “how  did she get so big so fast?”.
We all struggle with the dilemma of whether or not we’re spending enough time with our children, did we make the right choice in letting them eat that?, and feeling guilty because we yelled at them.  Mother’s are incredible people.  We can multi-task better than anyone and live on 3-4 hours sleep.

My mom is one of the most amazing examples of what a mother should embody.  I am so lucky to have been raised by someone who is so fearless, strong and resilient.  No matter what obstacle, she manages to conquer it.  I am in awe of her every day.

Here’s to my mom, being a mom and to all of the mom’s out there who need this day to step back and take a little time for themselves.  We here at CUE honor you.

xoxo,

Danielle

Ringing in the New Year with my baby.

Dress of the Week: Anne Barge

After all the excitement of the Royal Wedding and finally seeing Kate Middleton’s choice for her wedding dress, the girls at CUE thought this week’s Dress of the Week should be dedicated to a gown featuring lace – and who can do it better than Anne Barge?

This dress is covered with Alençon lace with fine details around its sweetheart neckline making this little number all the more elegant. The ribbon detail, sitting perfectly on the waist, ties back forming a bow that cascades down the back of the dress. Barge finishes off by fashioning the lower half as an asymmetrical layered tulle skirt with horsehair trim.

What is your take on a lace wedding dress?
