Last December when my sweet from Emily + her husband Aaron were visiting from San Fran they stayed at this old seminary turned hotel in Chelsea. I was instantly intrigued, and upon exploring the space with Em + taking our Christmas card pics there for our fashion blog I knew without a doubt that The Highline Hotel was a space I wanted to create in. Fast forward a month and I began thinking of ways to mix my two passions: fashion + wedding photography. What better way to do both than incorporate Pantone's Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid?
For the fashion forward bride who wants to incorporate pieces of Radiant Orchid my suggestion: stay with classic silhouettes and add pops of color in your details. From jewelry to nail polish to bouquets, to lavender mimosas there are a 1,000 different ways to incorporate orchid into your wedding. If you're feeling a bit adventurous go bold like our bride + bridesmaids did!
This shoot took a village + I am beyond humbled and grateful at the amazingly creative + talented ladies that came together to make this shoot happen. Thank you for helping to make this vision a reality + 100 times better than I could have ever hoped for! If you don't know these fabulous people, get to know them! And brides if you're still looking for NYC vendors…these are your gals!
Be sure + check out Style Me Pretty today for the full feature on this shoot!
As soon as I shared my vision for this shoot, Beth of The White Dress said she had the perfect orchid gown! She was right!
The invitations + paperie from Nichole at Coral Pheasant make my heart melt!
The gals at FaceTime Beauty did a flawless job on hair + make-up! So fresh + so clean clean!
