Orchids were the flower of the day, hence Maggie’s simple orchid bouquet. Her gown was just as understated yet stylish as the rest of the event. Maggie wore a two-piece Romona Keveza ensemble that teamed a silk-shantung skirt with a lace corset bodice.

Rather than bringing in lots of decorative accents, Maggie and Jake decided to let the restaurant’s natural beauty speak for itself. Three tables were set up beneath a skylight for the couple’s 32 guests, and each table was topped with two orchid plants. A heart-shaped chandelier provided the room’s warm, romantic lighting.

Maggie and Jake were married in a traditional Episcopalian ceremony in the back of the Cendrillion restaurant beneath a skylight. A family friend who is a priest at St. Thomas Episcopal Church agreed to perform the ceremony at the unconventional location. Afterward, the space was revamped for the reception.

Maggie & Jake in New York, NY

Sometimes, when two people meet online, it takes a few dates to realize how they feel about each other; but this wasn’t so for Maggie Moon and Jake Vander Linden. “I knew from our very first date that I would marry him,” remembers Maggie, who, despite this self-assurance, was still thoroughly surprised when Jake proposed at an outdoor cafe in Istanbul a few months later. The Bride Maggie Moon, 31, educational consultant The Groom Jake Vander Linden, 32, advertising executive The Date August 31 Maggie and Jake gave themselves just five months to plan their wedding, so location was key. At first, they were inspired by Jake’s proposal and started looking at Turkish restaurants, but then they decided on Cendrillion, a Filipino restaurant -- an even more appropriate choice since the couple was moving to Asia shortly after their wedding. With the spot picked, Maggie and Jake’s wedding style and small guest list easily fell into place.
