Plan a Manhattan matrimony even Carrie Bradshaw would approve of with the help of timeless and chic wedding design styled by MK Event Boutique and captured by the talented Kimberly Harrell Photography all around the modern, cityside HALL Arts Hotel. Luxurious, artful design a la New York City sophisticate is at your fingertips! Incorporate black and gold accents alongside overflowing gardenesque floral designs by Event Stems Floral and chic, fashion-forward bridal attire from Bridal Boutique complete with veil and accessories to coordinate. This bride model’s off-the-shoulder romance was emphasized by a loose, wavy updo and flawless wedding makeup by the artists at Grand Slam Glam Hair + Makeup who had her simply glowing.

 

A tablescape with floral runner pouring over its edges conveys an over-the-top vibe that demands to be celebrated with mod black candlesticks, fluted glassware, silky emerald linens and other décor from POSH Couture Rentals. A simplistic, four-tiered cake designed by Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery fits right into the scene surrounded by even more beautiful blooms that complement its minimalistic black, jeweled ribbon details. Pretty and posh as ever, paperie from MK Event Boutique invites guests to the affair in the most artful and articulate way possible, coordinating scripted place cards for familiarity and a cohesive look on the big day! Read on for notes from a few of the creatives that brought this chic wedding shoot to life, plus scroll to the bottom for a look behind the scenes from the videography lens of Alex Adkins Creative. Cheers!

 

 

From the planners, Hannah and Annie with MK Event Boutique: “My inspiration for this styled shoot came from multiple different places but the biggest two are a coffee shop that I frequent regularly and Restoration Hardware…modern meets garden meets chic. My vision for the tabletop featured modern details like black matte stone plates, gold and black matte flatware, gold chic chargers, and matte black taper candles mixed in with elegant glass votives. I also wanted to bring in different textures like velvet, cut crystal and stone to add some diversity and pops of dusty rose, ivory and greenery to soften the design.”

 

From Heidi with Sugar Bee Sweets: “When we saw MK Event Boutique‘s style board, we knew the cake needed to be classic and elegant with a twist of modern. You can never go wrong with a black and white color scheme and we really just wanted to keep the overall look very clean.”

 

From Reilly with Grand Slam Glam Hair + Makeup: “This hair and makeup look draws inspiration from the vibrant palette of colors in the floral design. We used soft pinks, brick tones, and a subtle green shadow on the lower lash line. Eyeshadow with shimmer adds dimension to the lighter colors in the palette and emphasizes the eye shape. The bride’s updo echoes the timeless elegance of the gown but still feels current. This look is serving modern Cinderella vibes! The key to this look was in the preparation of the hair and using a high-shine finishing spray.”
