Maya + Uri did things a little differently for their NYC loft wedding. Annnd we love it. They kept it casual, yet glamorous. They ditched a seated ceremony and held it on the dance floor surrounded by a circle of guests. No wedding party. The reception was more like a lounge. The whole thing had a 20s influence and a speakeasy feel. And considering they loved the photos Amber Gress shot at the first Greenpoint Loft wedding, they snagged her for theirs!

Maya’s hand-embroidered, art deco gold tulle Naeem Khan gown encapsulates their vintage vision. Champagne coupes, a swing jazz band, and lounge vibes also played into the theme.

The perks of the venue, Greenpoint Loft:

1) The view. You can’t get a more expansive view of Manhattan

2) The feel. Although you’re in a big Greenpoint warehouse, you feel like you’re in an oversized barn

3) The informality. We wanted a space that felt casual and allowed us to create a lounge setting, rather than a seated dinner

On planning, from Maya: Finding a Saturday at a venue in NYC is tough. There are so many weddings taking place here, so you truly can’t book early enough. While we didn’t have a planner throughout the process, having a month of planner made all the difference and took away all of the unnecessary stress.

Cheers to Maya + Uri!

Guys, how stunning is this dress?! It’s the ‘Dahlia’ gown by Rue de Seine and we sure wish we were in model Emi Perry‘s shoes the day she got to spend wearing it for this editorial by Alexandra Wallace. And if the dress isn’t enough to make you fall for these photos, your jaw will drop when you see the bouquets below…

PS: Remember the last Rue de Seine piece we featured here? Srsly, no words.

Alexandra says, The inspiration for this editorial came from the little one-street town Los Alamos, located less than an hour north of Santa Barbara. In the center of Bell Street, the town’s main stretch, lies The Alamo Motel, a little stay that has been recently taken over and renovated by the Shelter Social Club (also responsible for the highly regarded Ojai Rancho Inn and Sama Sama Kitchen). Design elements were directly drawn from the idea of the modern, young couple hopping in the car and getting hitched in a windblown, California setting.

The FluidBloom Designs bouquet was created from foraged florals, including giant garden roses + foxtails. Eeek, so textured and unexpected.
