Heather & Brian ♥ New York City, USA
Photographer: Zorz Studios
Being a city girl at heart, there’s nothing I love more than a metropolis marriage and New York City has to be a firm favorite when it comes to urban locales. The skyscraper views, the chic city venues…if a concrete jungle wedding is what your destination dreams are made of, then The Big Apple will not disappoint!
Heather and Brian tied the knot in NYC with a vintage-inspired wedding day that was cool and then some. They fell helplessly in love with The Green Building and built their theme around its beautifully sleek industrial interior and vintage vibe – it even has a speakeasy room at the back, decked out in décor that would be fitting to the prohibition days.
Previously a brass foundry, The Green Building boasts original brick walls and exposed beam ceilings, opulently finished with gold chandeliers and twinkling fairy lights to create a warm and intimate setting.
For the ceremony, Heather wore a gorgeous lace mermaid gown which she found at The Bridal Garden, a not-for-profit bridal boutique in New York City in which all proceeds benefit education for disadvantaged children.
Heather the bride says:
“It was awesome to know my purchase went to such a terrific cause! I bought it off the rack and it fit me almost perfectly!”
“At the wedding ceremony, the rabbi read our vows of why we wanted to marry each other, the touching vows Brian wrote brought me to tears and my favorite part during the ceremony was when Brian reached over to wipe my tears away.”
“I am Jewish and Brian Protestant, so we decided to fuse our backgrounds by incorporating an Irish ‘hand-fasting’ and a stomping of the glass, both beautiful traditions and incredibly sentimental.”
“After the dinner, dancing, and cake we ended with a food truck by Wafels & Dinges which was a huge hit! Paying homage to the speakeasy theme, guests took home little bottles of whiskey.”
