A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to work with several lovely local NY vendors to put together an “inspirational” wedding photoshoot. I shared my vision with Ara of Rock, Paper, Scissors Events and I am so happy with the way she put it all together! We tried to choose a theme that would truly be inspirational to brides, so we decided on “modern Spanish.” We’ve seen endless modern interpretations of French themes, but never of anything with Spanish influence. We were inspired by the flowy yet modern feel of Flamenco ruffles, Spanish architecture, Spanish lace, and Flamenco fans. Our color palette was lavender and red, with a hint of black and a pop of orange. One of my favorite elements of the shoot was the paper flowers. Ara created these herself, and they turned out amazing! They added depth and dimension to the layout, as well as a beautiful mix of color. Blossom and Branch also did an amazing job with the arrangements and bouquet, which used our color palette perfectly to fit into our theme! And the cake by Elegantly Iced incorporated the Flamenco ruffles beautifully. The shoot took place at a stunning private penthouse and rooftop in TriBeCa, and additional shots of the couple were taken in the surrounding neighborhood.
We also had the opportunity to work with some gorgeous models, Anca and Dumitru. Actually, they are not real models (surprising, right?), but they are friends of ours who have been married for a few years and are the parents of two darling little boys. They had the perfect look for our theme, and since they weren’t too thrilled with their own wedding photos, they were excited at the chance to dress up and take photos all over again. My very good friend and amazing photographer, Diana, also came all the way from Florida to help me with the shoot, and Ben of Nevaeh Productions was able to come from Chicago to capture the setup on video. We all had a blast working together, and the result was beautiful!
