Kristin + Jeff's City Chic Wedding

Real Weddings, Vintage Weddings

This wedding sent by Lindsey Thorne (who you may remember from this beautiful vintage wedding I posted a few months ago) is city chic at its best. Kristin wore a stunning silver gown and heels, with a black birdcage veil and feather piece. She wore a vintage fur stole to walk around the streets of New York City to take a few photos on the way to the reception. Her Old Hollywood Glamour gorgeous style is effortless. They had an intimate reception with the NYC skyline as their background at Water’s Edge, in Long Island City. It’s impossible to shoot a wedding in NYC without being a street photographer. Love seeing the people’s reaction around the bride, and how some don’t even notice them. So New York.

Amanda, from Stellina Events, shares a little bit about their wedding…

Kristin and Jeffrey met and fell in love in New York yet with Kristin being from Reykjavik, Iceland and Jeffrey’s whole family being from Johannesburg, South Africa (though he grew up in Los Angeles) almost all of their guests were flying in from all around the world to witness and celebrate their wedding.

As Jeffrey is a singer/songwriter and Kristin is a former model, they wanted to make their wedding elegant and glamorous yet fun and relaxed, and were inspired by the look and feel of the 1940s. They adored the Water’s Edge as we were able to turn the restaurant space into the perfect intimate celebration for their 65 guests. With floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the New York City skyline, guests were able to take in the view of the city that Kristin and Jeffrey love. Dozens of candles, gemstones and white roses were placed upon mirrored tablets to complement the twinkling lights of the skyline and evoke the same enchantment indoors as seen outdoors.

Kristin really wanted her look to be unique and knew that she had found her perfect wedding gown when she discovered her silver David Meister gown. Paired with black and silver Valentino heels, a white stole and black birdcage veil, her look was complete.

During the evening, Kristin and Jeffrey shared some of their favorite things with their guests. Throughout the night, guests enjoyed Icelandic Reyka vodka and wine from Argentina, where they got engaged, while at the end of the night, chocolates from Iceland and South Africa were given out as favors.

    Amazing outfit, the bride is drop-dead gorgeous! But my favorite picture is where they’re crossing the street and the fellow pedestrian to the groom’s left is staring at them with his jaw completely dropped and a look of amazement on his face. :D
