Deconstructed elegance. That’s the theme that Joyce + Michael dreamed up for their wedding day, and we think that describes it quite perfectly! (Don’t you?) It’s full of all kinds of vintage details and elegant touches, set in a raw historic space. These two also made an effort to incorporate Egyptian and Balkan music to honor Joyce’s Egyptian roots and Michael’s Bulgarian background. Thanks Patricia Kantzos, for sharing the pretty photos with us…

Joyce says, The whole venue was one big raw space, so we turned it in to a ceremony space, then cocktail space, then reception space all in one. It was pretty cool. We also displayed our parents’ and grandparents’ framed wedding photos around the venue and used props from the venue to decorate our space as we wanted.

Advice from the bride: Never feel pressure to do things a certain way. Follow your creative instincts and go with it. Others will appreciate your audacity and originality more than you would have expected.

Congrats you two!

  1. Love the rings. The diamond accents around the colored stone really sets off the vintage look of the ring. Antique, vintage and estate jewelry seem like all the rage right now, and seeing this set, I can see why. Want, want, want.

    Congratulations Joyce and Michael. It looks like it was a gorgeous ceremony.

  2. Beautiful wedding. The flower girls are too cute!

  3. This wedding was beautiful in so many ways! I know I was there, Joycie is my cousin :) The venue was stunning and Joyce and Mike put so much thought into the details, that’s what made it memorable and beautiful. Great taste and times at every corner at this wedding.The lighting, flowers, venue and decor were all so elegant and authentic. Everyone–old and young–had a great time! The frozen lime shooters didn’t hurt either :) xx

  4. Gorgeous photos of a beautiful couple–it was an honor to officiate this ceremony! All best wishes, Rev. Annie Lawrence “@RevAnnieNYC” ♡♡
