New York Metropolitan Building wedding: Lindsay + David

categories Neat Venues, Real Weddings

The perfect wedding venue for Lindsay + David was the Metropolitan Building, built in 1909 near the Queensborough Bridge. Its character is hard to miss with its brick textures, built-in bookcases and original freight elevator to take guests from street entrance to the fourth floor, where L + D’s black & white wedding celebration went down. She’s an architect who likes clean lines, rich textures and simple elegance. He’s a strategist who likes intentionality, original concepts and meaningful accents. Together they developed a wedding theme of modern vintage accents that were beautifully captured by Miho Aikawa Photography.
