New York Public Library Wedding Editorial

New York Public Library Wedding Editorial

Inspired by the idea of blending softness and spring to the beautiful architecture of the iconic New York Public Library this stunning New York Public Library wedding editorial was born. With a pastel color palette, various textures and a stylish design this glamorous shoot is sure to inspire any couple who desires a high fashion and luxury wedding day!

For this editorial we wanted to bring a blend of softness and spring to the structural nature of the all white Beaux-Art architecture of the iconic New York Public Library. We incorporated a pastel take on a floral spring palette and soft, textural wedding gowns. Playing on this balance between modern and romance, Liz Andolina Photography designed this shoot to inspire those couples who favor a more intimate wedding vibe but are not willing to compromise on high fashion and luxury details. Ana Luiza Weddings provided expert planning and coordination for the shoot. Our high fashion bride wore three Sebastien Luke gowns, each with a unique design and cut, multiple hair and makeup looks designed by Reflection Hair Design and NB Beauty & Co., textured statement earrings from Shashi, her engagement ring from Victor Barbone Jewelry, and bow studded Jimmy Choo heels. For her first look, the bride donned a gown with a feathered train and floral crown designed by Rachael Ellen Events. This was a beautiful moment to embrace the beauty of being a bride in a more editorial fashion. She then changed into her official wedding gown – an off the shoulder design with a soft ruffle along the neckline and cascading train. Her bridesmaids wore their own unique gowns inspired by the spring floral palette by designers Galvan London and Alexia Maria. Futuring a stroll stopping bow on her back, her maid of honor’s dress gave a subtle nod of coordination to the bride’s shoes. Both the bride and bridesmaids carried small spring bouquets created by Rachael Ellen Events. -Liz Andolina Photography

Following their elopement under the archway at the New York Public Library, the couple posed for portraits before heading to their intimate wedding reception. Rachael Ellen Events brought spring and an elegant pop of color to the bouquets and tablescape, featuring sweet peas, ranunculus, garden roses, beautiful greenery, and for added textures, grapes. To mimic the architecture at the library, Dovetail Rentals provided the unique oversized chairs, Broadway Rentals provided the modern and minimal tableware and flatware, and Nuage Designs provided the soft white linens to keep within the color palette. For our wedding paper, Foundry Paper Co. created a beautiful invitation suite inspired by the library’s history, the subtle addition of “something blue” to the color scheme, and the balance between texture and softness. The invitation suite was designed to be delivered as a book, and place cards were intelligently attached to the menu cards for the tablescape. Our reception design also featured a show stopping cake from Sarah and Simon Cake Design, who designed the cake’s piping to mimic the lines of the architecture of the library and further emphasize an attention to detail with the addition of a sugared flower topper. Our bride changed into her third and final gown, a halter neck mermaid gown with a long train and textured collar. -Liz Andolina Photography
