When most people think about New York City, popular destinations like Times Square, Central Park or the Brooklyn Bridge usually come to mind. As a native New Yorker, I’ve been lucky enough to explore less frequented parts of the city that are beautiful, charming and what makes NYC so special. As I was planning my bridal inspirational shoot, I wanted to create a modern, classic NYC wedding inspiration that displayed the charm of Old New York. Tribeca is a perfect embodiment of that as it is a quieter neighborhood that still has an old New York feel. My model wore this beautiful grey gown from BHLDN with a classic updo that made her look like the perfect modern-chic NYC bride. She then changed to an easy, fun, sexy dress for the second part of the shoot with a bold lip color that complimented the look. The diverse neighborhoods, people and culture of NYC is what makes it so special. You never know what you’re going to experience on any given day in the city. The same goes for NYC weather! It happened to rain on the day of shoot, but was a perfect reminder of how you can still have an amazing day and look beautiful in NYC.
