Small & Intimate Wedding in New York City

Everything about this New York city wedding is so incredibly romantic. The small and intimate wedding ceremony in the couple’s native Norwegian, their romantic stroll along East River with incredible views of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the handsome couple’s glamorous yet sophisticated style. It’s perfect proof a small wedding is just as romantic (if not more) as a gala affair. The talented Samantha Lauren was close at hand to perfectly capture their most intimate and beautiful moments, and I have to tell you, we’re over the moon she did.

Photographer Samantha shares: Liv and Magnus are from Norway and found me through Flickr, incidentally, and booked me to shoot their intimate Norwegian ceremony in Manhattan. They told me that they had been together for 12 years and both had just graduated from Medical school. Their trip to New York City was due for marriage, romance, and celebration. I love small intimate confessions of love such as this one! The short ceremony was entirely in Norwegian. Afterwards we were driven by Zak Limo to Pebble Beach underneath the Brooklyn Bridge to take some photos and then to Lincoln Center for a few closing shots. The weather was beautiful and we were given wonderful light under the bridge!

Glamorous Nashville Wedding by Matt Andrews Photography

There are so many glamorous details in this Nashville wedding that instantly captured our attention. Just feast your eyes on the incredible decor! Wow! The golden reception tables with overhead manzanita branches, a cake setting fit for a princess, twinkling chandeliers everywhere you turn, and the couple’s intimate table for two with elaborate dining chairs…we are falling for it all. And it married so perfectly with the warehouse style venue which hosted this chic city affair. Matt Andrews Photography snapped all the glamorous details as well as some super fun pics against the modern city backdrop. This is definitely a glamorous modern wedding if we ever saw one.

Photographer Matt shares: The weather was gorgeous on Kyle and Sara’s wedding day and they wanted to take advantage with lots of romantic and fun photos so we took the pre-ceremony portraits on the road. A tour bus picked up the entire wedding party to stop by several outdoor locations including the downtown pedestrian bridge and Shelby Bottoms Park. The reception was amazing and just the look on the bride and groom’s face when they first saw it was a great photo opportunity in itself. The reception was kicked off with a flash-mob and once the party got started it never slowed down until everyone was ushered outside for the big send-off with a fireworks show.

{Cake Inspiration} Pretty Croquembouche with Spun Sugar

The historical French croquembouche with it’s majestic design and historical origins, will always come in and out of vogue for weddings. We’re seeing a bit of a comeback of late – just like this gorgeous creation from an equally stunning handmade Sydney wedding. I love how the over-the-top design is toned down by displaying it on a rustic-style timber log. And the use of spun sugar and teeny-tiny white flowers give it a magical and whimsical look – a lovely mix of organic, glam and pretty. I expect we will see more croquembouche’s inspired by this year’s glamorous wedding trend making an appearance.

The Inspiration: {Photographer Carries shares}: I lived in New Orleans for a little while but didn’t get to experience Mardi Gras so I’m always wishing I’m there on Fat Tuesday:-) Part of what I love about my profession is coming up with creative ideas to continue improving and making them happen! So this was a little bit of inspiration that turned into a really cool shoot and it will even be featured soon in Tampa Bay Wedding Styles online magazine which is also pretty exciting. We actually did the session on fat Tuesday and Ybor is as close as I could get to the French Quarter feel. Feathers, bead covered florals and mask, beautiful wedding gown and fabulous models, Bobby and Cienne at the Roosevelt set the scene. I just wanted a simple, rough background and an alleyway I could light purple so we used a video light and off camera flash to create a dramatic effect. Here’s a little behind the scenes and also some of my favs.

Champagne, Chocolates & Chandeliers Wedding Theme

I thought I’d share with you today, a wedding inspiration board I created sometime ago but never got around to posting – Champagne, Chocolates and Chandeliers.’ This style of luxurious theme for a wedding is very much the trend for this year. It’s all about romance, luxury and old world elegance, but instead of the traditional ballroom venue of days gone by we’ve taken the theme outdoors for a woodsy, garden party feel. I love the idea of a relaxed and organic outdoor setting combined with the glamour of twinkling chandeliers and shimmering fabrics. Surrounded by luxury linens, sparking crystal and vintage tableware whilst sipping on french champagne and indulging in the richness of gourmet chocolates. Tell me . . . do you love decadent elements in a wedding or do you prefer simpler details?
