In this dreamy shoot, photog D’Arcy Benincosa applied the concept of an organic wedding to the energy of the city and her couple, two talented dancers. She says: The word “organic” has come to be used to describe everything lately, but the root of the word is truly about taking things that are alive, in nature, in us and realizing them anew. The vibrant NYC world of Central Park is truly just that—organic and alive. 

Thanks to D’Arcy + April from Bella Cosa MUAH for breathing new life into one of our favorite concepts!

D’Arcy is also a talented floral designer. This bouquet was created to mirror the old murals along the walls around Bethesda Fountain.

The bride’s angelic ivory-grey Samuelle Couture gown sure is enchanting, especially on a performer in New York City.

The simple things are the most enduring. From a classic black suit to a lightly pinned bun. This bride and groom truly illustrate an inspiration in class, elegance, simplicity, and timeless romance.

Christy of To La Lune says, 12th Table created stunning floral arrangements full of amazing texture and a perfectly blended color palette that compliments the natural seasonal transitions at Cheekwood as well as the drop dead gorgeous red hair of our sweet model, Madison Bosworth. Madison wore the classically elegant Lela Rose Marina gown from The Dress Theory, and bundled up in a mink stole to keep warm against the crisp winter chill.

Set up a photo album to share your story with friends + fam. Then why not update it later with a gallery of photos and videos from the e-sesh or wedding itself? Too good not to share!
