Elopements are kind of the best, especially when they take place in a library filled with history and beauty. This editorial gives us such a glimpse of joy in the midst of some crazy times right now (hello and goodbye COVID!). We love the setting of this shoot and the way that it matches the couple’s style so well! All of the details of this day portray simplicity and elegance, which is the exact type of peacefulness we need to see these days. Some of our favorites from this shoot: the stunning train on this dress and the modern, tasteful invitation designs!
From the Photographer: Situated amidst the busy streets of New York City, the New York Public Library brings a sumptuous and extravagant feel to the streets of Midtown Manhattan. Hidden amongst a sea of high rises, the intricate architecture and elaborate decoration of the library, has the ability to make one feel as if they are miles away from the busy streets of New York City.
From the Photographer: Adjacent from Bryant Park, the NYPL is the perfect location for a variety of looks, whether it be an elopement, bridals, or an engagement session. With the beautiful New York Public Library setting the scene with its classic European architecture, as well as the contrasting bustle of the NYC streets, we chose a complimentary attire with a sleek silhouette gown from Jenny Yoo. The gown featured a delicate regal cape, which framed the alluring open back of the dress beautifully. The bride, with her long bob, wore her hair down in loose romantic curls. For the groom’s attire we chose a classic black tuxedo from The Black Tux, which pulled together the overall modern classic look.
An asymmetrical floral bouquet added a modern, organic touch to the overall look and style of the editorial. With a pair of Belle Bella wedding shoes adding a soft touch to the modern gown.
