Something ‘Blue’ stands for Purity, Love and Fidelity

“Something old, something new, something borrowed and something BLUE”

Did you know the bride must gather these objects herself or from friends & family? All of these items are her good luck pieces and are often family heirlooms handed down through the generations to be worn on her wedding day. Having these items given to her by her immediate family or closest friends makes her wedding day more special.

“Something old’ is meant to represent continuity, perhaps a family heirloom.

“Something new” is meant to represent optimism for her future.

“Something borrowed” which most brides use this opportunity to honor someone in their life who isn’t part of their wedding party. Perhaps, they borrow their grandmother’s handkerchief or even one from their fiancée’s father.

“Something blue” stands for purity, love & fidelity. Make a statement with gorgeous blue bridal shoes!

Celebrating the Marriage of Natasha + Jamall on New Year’s Eve

Pure Platinum Party provided Natasha and Jamall our Award Winning Photography and Cinematography for their New Year’s Eve Wedding!  The couple opted for pre-ceremony pictures at the beautiful Radisson Hotel in New Rochelle, NY. They had an afternoon filled with pictures of family and friends at Neptune Park in New Rochelle, NY. Their ceremony took place at the gorgeous St. John Chrysostom Church in the Bronx, NY. Built of orange brick with stone trim, the twin towered church opened in the 1900’s. Natasha and Jamall shared a late evening of dancing and celebrating the New Year (and their marriage!) with their family and friends close by. 

Natasha and Jamall met in 2014, on a warm August evening, the universe aligned for a beautiful Bronx girl and a handsome Brooklyn boy. They said they didn’t know their lives would be changed for the better… forever.  They were both giving life a chance, each not knowing what the future would hold after this day. Each not knowing if they had made the right decision. Once the date started, it became clear things would be different for them. Today, because of the decision they made 7 years ago, they have truly found the key things they need in life to love one another endlessly.

Jamall and Natasha met in Union Square and went on, possibly, the longest first date ever.  They went on a journey throughout Manhattan. Exploring different places and things of each other’s interests from Brother Jimmy’s, took a stroll through Forbidden Planet, went to a random bookstore and had fun walking around Washington Square Park and through the East Village. They laughed with one another and learned about each other. Natasha discovered Jamall had a chivalrous side and he was quiet. Jamall discovered Natasha was kind and she was outspoken. They have been inseparable ever since. That day they fell in love.

We wish Natasha + Jamall a lifetime of love and happiness as they begin 2021 as Mr. and Mrs. Dixon.

LOVE “First Look” for Toniette and Steve at the Villa Venezia

Pure Platinum Party shared in the celebration of Toni and Steve’s fairytale wedding in the Fall of 2020 at the beautiful Villa Venezia in New York.

Toni + Steve’s love story began in 2015.  Toni and Steve LOVE sports, but…Toni was born and raised in Maryland and their teams are different… actual rivals! Almost every sports team they differ with but it makes for fun times for the two of them! Take a look at their Engagement session photo at Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ where they are known for their stunning Cherry Blossom trees.

Toni + Steve like having fun, laughing, playing mini golf, going to games, relaxing on the beach, hanging with their french bulldog Rudy 🐾 and family/friends.

Thank you for letting us share with you and your family and friends on your wedding day. We wish you continued love and happiness always.
