Utterly Romantic Editorial Shoot at Jardin de Buis, New York

“Like walking into a Jane Austen novel” – Bumble Burgh Events Co. together with the beyond talented Ivash photography created the magical atmosphere of Medieval wedding at the Jardin de Buis in New York. A large team of professionals worked hard and created those incredible ideas to bring them to our eyes through these breathtaking pictures.

Jardin de Buis, an eighteenth-century dairy farm with an original main house, multiple courtyards, an English-style orangery, and a French-style potager garden became the perfect place to stage an editorial shoot inspired by a return to tradition. Everything from the classic style of the attire to the vintage tablescape pieces, luxe stationery materials, European furniture pieces, and the scent the bride wore was reflective of the traditional elements each vendor is seeing requested in abundance this year.

The Bellini gown from the WONÁ Concept newest collection became the real jewel of the photoshoot adding special style to the surrounding atmosphere. All sewn of the glossy satin this dress is vintage-styled, feminine and sexy at the same time! The corset is embellished with the deep V-neckline and the unique feature of the gown is hidden in the puffy volumetric shoulder sleeves. The lush ball skirt has a high slit on one leg that adds nothing but excellence to the bridal look. The long train makes the bride look even more luxuriously.

We were inspired to design an editorial shoot that reflects a renewed appreciation for the traditional side of weddings. We pulled a team of talented vendors to create an editorial shoot wherein each detail gives nod to cultural continuity in tradition. The venue search was extensive as it was important that the venue exuded an old-world, stately feel that could embody multiple cultural aesthetics. We asked ourselves, “If our French, Dominican, American or Asian brides wanted a wedding venue that they could bring their cultural traditions to and it enhance those traditions, what would that venue look like?” We found it in Jardin de Buis.

My bridal experience at WONA bridal was amazing. My consultant, Malak, was extremely knowledgeable, warm, and courteous. The gowns were in great condition, the lighting was perfect, and my entourage and I had total privacy during thr entire appointment. I didn't officially say yes to the dress. However, I know I found my dream dress and am looking forward to moving forward with the process with the WONA team!

Yesterday I found the dress of my dreams at Wona bridal. My first impression was through the seamless and easy booking process followed up with friendly responses and prompt emails for any questions I had regarding the big day. Yesterday upon my arrival I was greeted with a smile by one of the sales associates as my associate wasn’t quite ready yet. We were welcomed to walk around and look through some of the racks until it was my turn. I was greeted by Kayla who appeared to be just as excited to find my wedding dress as I was. I began showing her some pictures of inspiration but really left most of my faith in her hands to point me in the right direction. Before I knew it the third dress I tried on would have ended up being my wedding dress. Kayla was knowledgeable, patient and guided me through the appointment with strategic strategy that left me 100% confident that I had found the dress of my dreams. Even down to the sizing and customization Kayla and the rest of the Wona team took their time and really made my vision feel heard. Leaving yesterday I am 100% confident that I have the dress of my dreams and thanks to the Wona staff I cannot wait to go back and continue the process before my big day!! Thank you Kayla!!!!!

Malik was absolutely fabulous during my wedding dress shopping experience. After explaining my vision she quickly brought out dresses that were stunning and fit my vision. She Made me feel amazing in each one and explained all the details of what alterations were possible (pretty much any alterations you want!) since I had very specific requests! While I ultimately did not choose a dress from this location, I would highly recommend shopping here. It was amazing learning more about the dresses, material, alterations, and overall what I really wanted for myself on my wedding day. I’m grateful for the kindness and patience Malik showed me during my visit to WONÁ.

I had a great experience at Wona! I got to try on gorgeous dresses & Bridget was so motivational and kind. I really would have loved to have bought a dress here, but my wedding got moved up several months & a rush order fee was not in my budget. I’m so grateful that I was able to try in my dream dress (look in the photos for a gold glitter extravaganza) & that the women who work here were attentive and so helpful. My fiancé enjoyed seeing me in a couple dresses (he wanted to be part of the process).

This experience was wonderful! I shopped around at many bridal stores but there’s something very special about WONA. It’s a small personalized boutique feeling. The dresses are gorgeous and different from other shops. There are so many customizations available, I’ve never seen anything like it! They put zero pressure on you to buy a dress. I worked with Kayla and Sylvia both were so sweet, friendly and knowledgeable. The manager Marina, was friendly and accommodating. I 100% would recommend this bridal shop! Thank you Wona for helping me find my dream dress!
