From the photographer

Drea and her husband, Bradley, went back and forth on what kind of wedding to have. He had visions of having a big wedding, while Drea wanted to keep it small and simple. Their compromise would be that while they would have a bigger wedding than she imagined, she got to hand select each vendor, and was diehard about involving local vendors and supporting mom and pop businesses. Between friends and family that helped this day come into fruition, and the carefully selected vendors that were included in this day, it was “one big labor of love”, as Drea likes to put it. This particular venue, The Icehouse, was especially unique, and not just for it’s urban feel and industrial chic edge. It was originally established in the 20’s as an actual ice house, then later used for as storage used by the police as crime evidence. In the most recent years, it has been renovated into a cultural center, with the central emphasis being devoted to promoting the Arts and humanitarian causes.

Now, I’m sure New York City has a million cool spots to tie the knot in. But this one – the Midtown Loft & Terrace – well, let’s just say it’s a rooftop venue that is one to covet that’s for sure! The wonderful Lasting Memories Photography sent it over, knowing that the vintage details alone would make us squeal with delight! Settle in folks and enjoy all the pretty New York details…

From the Photographer:

Jane and Brendan looked at over 50 wedding venues before they discovered that no package wedding would do for them. Both designers by trade they knew that a blank canvas was the only way they could create their dream day. Fortunately, Midtown Loft & Terrace provided them with this blank canvas. The venue is ideally located in Midtown Manhattan, which allowed their guests coming from all over the globe to make a weekend of it in the big apple. Keeping within a budget and controlling design elements was very important to them and they made the decision to hand make many of these elements themselves. 

Thematically they wanted to combine their love of the rustic outdoors of upstate New York and his love of vintage grand prix racing. Choosing coral and turquoise as their colors, and burlap and kraft as textures and paper, gave them the necessary colors and looks associated with a summer, rustic wedding. They wanted the evening to be farmhouse chic, right in the heart of New York. Several custom burlap pillows decorated the furniture in order to bring some of that rustic appeal into the space. Jane and Brendan designed and printed their kraft paper invitations, sealing each one with a wax seal. When unfolded it read as if were and old time advertisement for a Broadway show. Programs doubled as fans were also designed and printed by the couple. Additional printed pieces that were also created by the couple were the seating cards and menus, which were also done on kraft paper to match many of the other printed pieces that were made. One of the bridesmaids illustrated the wedding book/poster that all the guests then stamped with their fingers and signed. A close friend of the couple performed the ceremony on the rooftop. Cocktails and passed hors d’ouvres followed on the roof as the sun set over the Hudson. Time to dine and dance in the loft.

The couples opted for rectangular wooded farm tables laid out in long rows to give the feeling of eating at an outdoor picnic table. No table linens were used exposing the natural texture of the tables. They were dressed up using a burlap runners on top of which the coral colored centerpieces sat in galvanized tins. Candles adorn the tables along with bottles of wine, which had been labeled over with various grand prix track labels and vintage race numbers to act as table numbers. The stemware was simple but had the necessary pop, as they were turquoise. Mason jars dressed up with hand made straws each decorated with a little flag served as water glasses. 

The gift table was made to look like a flea market. To hold the wedding cards a custom box was made by the groom to look like an old leather trunk complete with travel stickers. The desert table held miniature pies set upon a tiered birch bark holder provided by their florist. A custom made pie topper, ordered by the bride to surprise the groom, was displayed. It was created by an Etsy artist to look like the bride and groom on their wedding, but with a bit of a racing twist. After dinner and dancing, guests were invited to pick up their favors. Custom boxes were made by the groom to hold lottery tickets with a sticker on the outside reading, “Lucky in Love”

Finally, for those who had not danced enough another small after party on the rooftop completed the evening allowing guests to wind down while enjoying the fantastic views of Midtown Manhattan at night.

Winter Cocktail Party Wedding by Joel Bedford Photography

You know we fall head-over-heels for a modern wedding (well, ANY wedding for that matter), but can you really blame us when they are as pretty as this one? A cool cocktail party wedding in the middle of a cozy winter scene with freshly fallen snow? It really doesn’t get any better. Joel Bedford Photography was on the scene to make sure every detail of this swish fête was perfectly captured, and how much do you just love the outdoor pics? I’m wishing for a fresh fall of white powder as we speak!

Debbie & Paul created an intimate evening cocktail party wedding in Ottowa in late December. After a beautiful church ceremony (officiated by Debbie’s parents, both pastors), Debbie and Paul rushed to the historic Byward Market in the capital’s downtown core. Under gently falling snow, we did their portraits and hurried into the warm loft style e18hteen restaurant. Surrounded by loved ones, they danced the night away.

Sydney City Wedding by Hilary Cam Photography

A wedding overlooking Sydney Harbour always comes with a spectacular factor, but when we saw this gorgeous modern affair by Hilary Cam Photography we knew it was much more than a collection of gorgeous city views. Meet Diana and Greg. Both grew up in China, both decided to study in Australia, and both found each other, here in Sydney. Their heartfelt ceremony at the Little Bay Chapel left not a dry eye in the house, as Greg recounted watching the sun rising over The Great Wall of China and how the new light in his life, Diana, and watching their first sunrise together in Little Bay – surpassed it by far! So romantic. Their beautiful reception was at L’Aqua Cockle Bay where lovely bride Diana changed into a second wedding gown and then the party began with heartfelt speeches, hilarious games and wonderful food.

From the photographer:

When I first met Greg and Diana I was blown away by Diana’s attention to detail and wedding planning skills. She was enthusiastic and curious and had more than the usual questions. Emails were exchanged (40 to be precise) before a single photo was to be taken! I was a little nervous as a result, but Greg and Diana turned out to be an absolute pleasure to work with – always good spirited and very excited about every aspect of planning their day! Greg and Diana are anything but your regular couple, they wanted moustaches at their wedding, encountered zombies on their engagement, and their wedding day was a feast of gorgeous details and incredible food – all that planning paid off!

From the photographer: Heather & Jose are friends of mine, and I was absolutely delighted when they asked me to be their photographer. I knew their wedding would be super cool, DIY and earthy-themed, with Heather’s fabulous flair added to it. Their wedding took place on a beautiful Spring day at the Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, Nevada – the premiere LEED-certified location for ‘green’ brides and grooms. 

Some of their green details included: Invitations made from plantable seed paper, sustainable paper made from the Lotka bush and eco-paper ribbon from Earth Invitations. Ceremony programs and reception menus printed on Elephant PooPoo Paper. Bridal jewelry from Green Diva Jewelry. Centerpieces and bouquets made from succulents and tillandsia, using no cut flowers at all, which the guests took home at the end of the day. Little planted succulents as escort cards. Homemade pistachio lime wedding cookies for favors, packaged in compostable cellophane. Reclaimed wood for the guest book, cake stand and ring pillow. When the bridesmaids’ wanted a break from their heels they wore foldable flip-flops made from recycled tires. Save-the-dates that Heather painted herself to look like vintage national park postcards.

They also had their first dance choreographed by A Perfect Wedding Dance, and it was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Heather & Jose are a beautiful couple and planning their day with these special details really added their personal touch to the wedding, creating memories that will never be forgotten. I’m so thankful they chose me to photograph their wedding.
