A Vintage Inspired City Wedding in a Crisp and Elegant Palette of Ivory, Black & Green
CLY BY MATTHEW
When a couple are as stylish as Shannon & Kim you just know their wedding is going to be something special. A city celebration in a lush palette of ivory, black and green, with the perfect mix of vintage and modern, and a hint of industrial too; it exemplifies “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”! So if you’re a lover of all thing chic and sleek you had better have your pinning fingers at the ready!…..
This elegant affair was inspired by and took place at The Foundry, a 19th century venue full of industrial character and stunning proportions, in Long Island City, with views of the Manhattan skyline from its rooftop terrace! Polished yet heartfelt, packed with romantic florals by Workship Luxury and elegantly co-ordinated from the dapper bridal party, to the refined wedding cake; and all captured by Matthew & Bo from Cly By Matthew.
Before I share all the lovely details, a few words from photographers Matthew & Bo “We really loved the organic floral design and the simple decor of this chic same sex wedding at the Foundry. Workship Luxury did an amazing job decorating the center pieces and we really loved the bride’s bouquet with long stems. It was unique and beautiful. Shannon, the bride with the wedding gown, went for the vintage chic 1920’s hair style and red lipstick. She was really drop dead gorgeous in person and we enjoyed capturing her beauty. They did not see each other before they walked down the aisle and when they did, I will never forget their facial expressions. They were just so in love and in the moment together. They had many out of town family and friends who joined the celebration. There was so much love in the room and family and friends really had a great time.”
I am more than a little in love with Kim’s dapper Tux and black & white brogues – doesn’t she look fab??
The Foundry looks like such a fabulous venue, with industrial architecture but such chic decor – it was just perfect for Kim & Shannon’s crisp and elegant colour palette!
Lockets on a bouquet is such a heartfelt but simple way to keep absent loved ones close to your heart on your wedding day.
Awww I see what Bo & Matthew meant now….. whether it happens before or during the ceremony, the first look is always so precious!
And I love how the newly-weds made their way back down the aisle – so full of joy, they boogied…..
How swoonworthy is Shannon’s updo??
And don’t the bridesmaids look fabulous in their LBBDs, paired perfectly with chic nude heels…..
I love their understated reception decor! Their floral centrepieces and candle votives create such an elegant and romantic atmosphere…..
With her veil removed you can see just how lovely Shannon’s updo was in this shot of the happy couple at their sweetheart table…..
And their wedding cake and display was simply perfect – one tier, atop an ornate stand amongst a ring of roses….. I love it!
A huge congratulations to Kim & Shannon, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
