The WPN Podcast  Live from Kleinfeld Bridal This podcast was recorded live at the Mecca of all bridal salons, Kleinfeld. We were invited in to the most well known bridal salon in the country Kleinfeld Bridal to record our podcast. We bring to you conversations with brides, parents of the bride, as well as wedding gown designers and the owner of Kleinfelds. The salon was electric when we arrived on Saturday morning as hundreds of brides in all states of wedding gown planning arrived at Kleinfelds. Brides were eager to speak with us about their wedding gown search. We spoke to parents of a bride who were there with their daughter for her first fitting. Hear her dad's reaction to seeing his little girl in her wedding gown for the very first time. We also have a chance to speak with wedding gown designers Amarildine from Paris. We also have a conversation with Canadian gown designer Justina McCaffrey. We were then joined by the owner of Kleinfeld Bridal Mara Urshel who shared her insight into choosing the right wedding gown. This is the podcast to listen to if you are looking to choose the right gown for your wedding.

Meet the Masters with Preston Bailey

Since I started shooting weddings in the late 80's I have always been fascinated by how floral designers were able to create such beautiful flower arrangements. Then I had the pleasure of working with Preston Bailey who brought my appreciation to a whole new level. To say that Preston Bailey is a floral designer is like saying Pavarotti is a just a singer. Preston Bailey's work in my opinion is magical. I have been lucky enough to work with Preston Bailey on many weddings over the years and I am always amazed at his talent. No one I know can create floral master pieces the way he can. His work truly takes your breath away. When Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, Donna Karan, Liza Minnelli, Laurence Fishburne, Bill Cosby, Matt Lauer, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones wanted to celebrate the magical moments in their lives, Preston was their first call. I had the chance to interview Preston Bailey in his studio loft in New York City for this podcast. Preston shared with me his philosophy about wedding planning and design. He gives great advice on flower choices, color and texture. Preston describes his choices for particular flowers for many styles of wedding.
