Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild’s wedding was one of the most celebrated events of the year in NYC. The full Martha Stewart’s Wedding team was in force, designer Mark Zunino flew in to fit Tiler’s gown, Olivier Theykens for Theory dressed Robbie and attended – not to mention the ballet and theater royalty who were there to dance the night away and fete the gorgeous couple. Planning this wedding was an honor and a pleasure; being able to provide a magical day for a couple that has provided ballet magic for so many was a treat!
When I met these NYC principal ballet dancers at a luncheon hosted by Martha Stewart Weddings at the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center with forty other NYC wedding planners, I dreamt of helping Tiler and Robbie with their wedding. Over a year later, I happily watched from the first row as they took their first dance steps together as husband and wife!
The Highline Hotel in NYC’s Chelsea is the home of an Episcopalian seminary – the romantic gardens were once a 17th century apple orchard. The Chapel is on the grounds of this secret garden, where Tiler and Robbie joyfully tied the knot.
The bride’s bouquet picked up the subtle pink, peach, dusty rose and green of the wedding palette, and included peonies, garden roses, veronica, lady’s-mantle, scabiosa and peppermint geraniums.
The ring box, specially made on Etsy, included the couple’s initials and was stained to match the aesthetic spirit of the reception room.
The stationery, created by Design Corral for the Wedding Library, used the omnipresent quatrefoil pattern found on the grounds of the hotel and seminary. We love the charcoal ink and gold-foil stamping.
The bridesmaids wore an assortment of Wedding Library Monique Lhuillier gowns in ballet-slipper pink – the elegant party included NYC Ballet principal ballerinas. The bridesmaids’ bouquets picked up the subtle pink, peach, dusty rose and green of the wedding palette.
The trio of Martha Stewart Wedding Editorial Director’s daughters were beyond thrilled to be flower girls. Their adoration of their ballet idols was clear as they took their tasks very seriously.
Griz and Cali, the couple’s adored pups, were pretty happy to be a part of their big day!
We loved executing the beautiful greige palette and quatrefoil pattern in different ways – here Sue from Design Corral die-cut the motif on the program cover. The pattern is shown repeatedly on the church aisle floor, in mosaic.

The bridal party takes time for photos and a glass of champagne before an outdoor cocktail reception.
The cocktail napkins were simply classic and filled from edge to edge with the quatrefoil motif.
