YOU ARE KNOWN FOR YOUR DESIGN SENSIBILITY, WITH NO TWO WEDDINGS ALIKE! CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT A RECENT FAVORITE?
I love Gabby and Nick’s wedding! The couple had a gorgeous ceremony—they got married under trees, and we brought in vintage pottery that framed the aisle. The bride collected vintage dishes to place over the beautiful bars (and I love anything vintage). We mixed furniture and linens and fresh fruits on the table. When it was time for the reception, we created a very cool reveal of an automatic curtain that raised slowly to introduce the guests to the party… it was wow!

Another recent wedding that I just love is Alison and Jason’s wedding that took place in Malibu, California …SO many details. We rented a private property so we had a blank palette to work with and boy, we filled it with so many moments. We were able to rent a beautiful glass greenhouse tent. We added a lattice entrance and rented a gorgeous green Austin Healy (a British Green that we used to match all items that were green!). We also created a custom-built, sunk-in step-down black and white dance floor and a custom black and white stripe canopy over the guests’ bar. The bride’s favorite, lily of the valley, was delicately placed within all the flowers.
Well, I don’t know what others might have up their sleeves, but I’m hoping to create some gorgeous, more minimalistic experiences if my clients will allow me. I want to create more of an art experience…but let’s wait and see!
WHAT’S COMING UP FOR MINDY WEISS THAT YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT?
I am so grateful, I have so many wonderful opportunities this year. I have a partnership with Mark & Graham, a curated collection of wedding invitations with Minted, and some really special events all over the world, and I rented a private villa in Tuscany for my family and me to actually get a vacation. I can’t wait to spend time with them, it’s going to be a very special experience for all of us.
