This couple has such fabulous style! Captured by Simply Rose Photography, Karen and Mike were married on a gorgeous May day in an intimate gathering at a restaurant in Vancouver, Canada. Karen wore a lovely vintage dress with her hair pulled up in an elegant top knot adorned with the perfect bow headpiece. Mike looked dapper in a simple gray suit with a black tie. The gorgeous pink paper flower bouquet that Karen carried was lovingly handmade by a friend and transported all the way from Belgium for this special occasion. The ceremony and reception restaurant was set with simple and elegant potted succulent plants. I adore all the thoughtful and simple details of this intimate wedding!
From the bride:
We wanted our wedding day to be a simple and elegant gathering that focused on bringing together our friends and family to celebrate love.
Wow, talk about a stunning ring shot! Captured by Kimberly Salem Photography, Yuliya and Noah were married on a gorgeous July day in an outdoor ceremony on the Hudson River overlooking the NYC skyline. The theme of the wedding was bold pink with lovely touches of decor from Noah’s family’s antique store. Be sure to read more about how the couple met and their wedding day inspiration below!
A few words from the bride:
Noah and I were introduced by a mutual friend. The friend went to high school with Noah and to college with me. He suggested that we start talking to each other and Noah messaged me to discuss our favorite TV show at the time, 24. We first met when we both joined our friend to shop for holiday gifts for his mother and grandmother. We met at Filene’s basement to help him out. The rest is history!
Whenever I discussed my wedding with anyone, they would always ask if it was going to be all pink. I would get embarrassed at being so transparent and say, “Yes, but you know, not too much!” Thankfully, Noah encourages my obsession with pink and allowed me to incorporate it into all of the details. To keep it from looking less like a child’s birthday party and more like the joining of two adults in matrimony, we threw in a lot of gray, silver, textures and antiques which his family graciously lent us from their antique store. In the end it came together better than we could have ever imagined.
We live in New York City and it is a very special place for us. Ironically that is why we were looking at venues in New Jersey. It provides the best views of the city that we love so much. When we first saw our venue, we knew that it was the right one for us. Not only did it offer amazing views of Manhattan, but it was also modern and classy, which was what we had been looking for. It also came with the added bonus of allowing us to have the ceremony outside with the skyline and Hudson as our backdrop. We were sold.
Overall, we were going for a modern, clean look. Our chuppah started that off during the ceremony. The white fabric flowed beautifully in the wind and the flowers across the top gave us a beautiful frame for the ceremony. Because we did not want to compete with the skyline view during the reception, we kept the centerpieces low. To go with the overall color scheme, we went with gray tablecloths and napkins as well as black cushions for the chairs. Our venue also suggested rectangular tables and we used antique candelabras on those tables to give it a bit of a twist. My husband was also set on having king and queen chairs for our sweetheart table and I added some antique busts of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI. Between the busts was a beautiful and lush flower arrangement.
Wow, this session is bursting with stunning images and locations! Captured Megan Tsang Studio, Betty and Bryant spent an October day wandering New York City for their engagement session. The couple is originally from the San Francisco Bay area, but now lives in NYC, so they wanted to showcase New York’s gorgeous fall weather. I especially love the mix of backdrops, with everything from edgy street scenes, to the underside of a huge tree canopy, to the subway!
