nyc hip hop themed wedding at liberty house

oh, matt + jyoti…this was our kind of wedding.  our first encounter with these two over coffee in the flatiron district during which, we marveled over matt’s NYC skyline tats and basically fell in love with their hip hop/new york city-themed wedding plans.  we were smitten by their unique style and ideas for a glam but effortlessly cool wedding with personalized musical touches…like their hip hop string quartet, yut + the hot four.  matt + jyoti are definitely two people interested in keeping it REAL.  their super fun west side engagement session was another window into this sparkly couple’s love story.  we knew this wedding was going to be KILLER.  tess + erica from Jane Layne Events were running the show– these fiercely talented miami/nyc-based “eventistas” consistently push the limits on how edgy + cool weddings can really be.  the skyline view of nyc’s west side is incredible from liberty house and was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor ceremony and open-air tented reception.  as if it couldnt get any better, the music-theme continued as everyone moved inside for a vinyl grid step-and-repeat, awesome dj, more dancing and more snacks (obviously, including the late night Treats Truck!).  this party is best summed up with a bit of wisdom offered by one of matt’s tattoos: a dancing hamburger who advises, “DANCING IS A MUST!”

romantic wedding at the sagamore resort on lake george

kristen + dave’s beautiful wedding took place at the sagamore resort on lake george in upstate NY.  their celebration had so many romantic details!  we loved kristen’s DIY jenga pieces (in place of a traditional guest book), glittery table linens, bay leaf garland by fine affairs + surroundings floral …and pink + gold shimmery everything!  while this group was SUPER energetic and fun (crowd surfing? yes.  NFL-style pileup on the dance floor?  yes.) the day unfolded with absolute elegance and perfection.  kristen’s gown was so incredible!!  obsessed with the beading and detachable cap sleeves.  oh and dont even get us started on that golden polka dot ombre cake design!!  so unique.  this wedding was crazy beautiful and we loved every minute of kris + dave becoming mr + mrs.  we ADORE their amazing families (check out kristen’s bro + sis-in-law’s key west wedding here!) and were so grateful to be part of another special day with this crew.  this is one wedding you wont want to miss…
