Wilbirg and Jason got married two years ago at New York City Hall, they never had a fancy wedding or wedding pictures.
Together with a great team, we created their dream wedding as an inspirational style shoot. An intimate New York Wedding Style Shoor at one of the most beautiful spots in Brooklyn, overlooking the city skyline that never sleeps.
We started the day at the Loft, where bride and groom had a small breakfast to enjoy the morning and the excitement of the day.
Wilbirg met our model (maid of honor) who helped her get dressed and relax. Jason enjoyed having time for himself, reading the newspaper and getting dressed. Both were nervous and full of excitement, because they never saw each other in a wedding dress or wedding tuxedo.
Wilbirg Make-Up was very down to earth, very natural. Her hair a bit messy, like she wanted it. Some bridal jewelry in her hair gave her the right sparkle. They were leaving the apartment separately to get the first glimpse outside in a better light.
When Jason finally saw Wilbirg he told us that she looks more beautiful that he ever expected. You could tell how much in love they are by looking at each other. We went next to the location to take some couple pictures, before leaving to our location.
Wilbirg is from Austria and so was most of the helping team. That was one of the reasons they were excited about this wedding photo shoot, and of course both wanted a location where you could face the City. And honestly it never gets old watching New York in different lights during the day.
When the Couple entered the location, we created a crowd of friends waiting outside with the ceremony officiant, it was a cozy autumn day, not too cold and perfect weather for an outdoor wedding. The sun was warm and there was no wind at all
Ruth Muzio, one of our favorite florists in New York, created the wedding bouquet and floral designs for the location.
Something different, colorful but classy was the briefing and she combined it with some vintage materials, so that it looked just awesome. Instead of an arch, she designed to big flower arrangements so that you could easily see the city behind.
We wanted to include some of the soft lavender and green from the color swatches but accent with some bolder berry colors, and some greenery/foliage in many shades. As the bride wanted an arch, we decided to use it as the decoration for the table… so we created a wedding table for 12 guests for this styled shoot with the flower arch in the back with some geometrical decor and lights.
The table setting was a mix of gold and flowers, messy but structured including some stones as name cards. The Vows and table numbers were on acrylic glass, from the cake topper till the champagne signs.
Instead of a cake we decided to have a donut mountain, because the bride loves donuts since she moved to the United States.
The Groom always wanted a grooms lounge, so we created one on the upper terrace.
We tried to include every detail that was important for the real couple, so that they would have their little dream wedding with everything they ever wanted, including their first dance under the stars and with New York in the back.
We are grateful to had such a wonderful Style Shoot in New York City.
