You know when authors talk about a book they wrote and they say that the story was inside of them, and they just had to get it out. I sometimes feel like that with weddings and shoots. I can see it so perfectly and I just want to bring it to life! That's how I feel about the vision I see for this mood board. I see a cozy winter industrial setting, stung cafe lights and lots of minimal-meets-industrial details. I am hoping to execute this vision soon. Stay tuned!
The bride wore a Valentino-inspired bespoke gown and the groom's big request was a funfetti cake. The couple had an eclectic vision, including a tuscan inspired dinner, maracas used by guests as props through out the night, and the venue was a Brooklyn beer garden. It was a melting pot of inspiration, not unlike the streets of New York where they couple had their first look and took their wedding photos. All the elements came together beautifully for a fabulously fun party!
It's another addition of my favorite feature, wear this, get married here, where I pick favorite looks from a recent red carpet event and match them to the wedding venue I imagine them in. Today we are back in NYC.
First up, Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. Wouldn't this modern, pretty gown look so sweet dancing the night away at Liberty Hall at The ACE Hotel?
Next up, Rooney Mara with a quirky Alexander McQueen gown. I picture her venue to be hip and unexpected, like the Wythe Hotel.
FInally, I paired one of my favorite looks, Ms. Golden Globe, Corinne Foxx's beautiful illusion-detailed gown with magic of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
Sunday was the biggest red carpet of the year, the Academy Awards, there were lots of stunning gowns on beautiful Hollywood stars. I imagined these each of my favorite gowns in different New York City venues, styled perfectly to compliment their look.
One of my very favorite dresses of the night, Emma Stone, in Elie Saab. What a perfect alternative bridal gown to get hitched at 501 Union in Brooklyn.
Chic and modern Naomi Watts in Armani Prive would fit right in at the Gramercy Park Hotel.
Over-the-top in Elie Saab, Jennifer Lopez would be the perfect bride to get married in the New York Public Library.
A very classic and polished, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, in Zuhair Murad, and her man, in Dolce & Gabbana, would make for the perfect bride and groom in the Loeb Central Park Boathouse.
And finally to compliment her beautiful crimson textured gown, Roseamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture would look stunning against a modern, red wedding at Andaz 5th Avenue.
