Nothing is more quintessential New York than the Manhattan Skyline as the backdrop for your wedding. Liz and Jeffrey’s wedding boasts a vintage taxi, a backyard Brooklyn reception, and to top it all off, an ice cream truck! These images by Ben of Weddings by Two are to good to be true, it’s impossible to pick a favorite! Did we mention that Liz looked like a Disney Princess in her Sarah Seven Cascade gown? See for yourself!
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
The moment I cast my eyes on the Sarah Seven line, I just knew. Once I put on the Cascade gown, I felt as though I was floating. The draping pieces of soft ivory created such an ethereal quality and the delicate gold thread and floral lace overlay added the perfect touch.
There’s almost nothing in my wardrobe that I wouldn’t belt, and my wedding dress was no exception. I wanted to heighten the gold detailing of the Cascade and when I came across the antique gold gilded belt from Misty Albion on Etsy, I may have stopped breathing. The intricate filigree work mirrored the elegant lace of the dress and the diamantes matched the dusty shale bridesmaids’ dresses serendipitously. It seems cliché, but I felt like a princess.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
A great location. A fun atmosphere. And an amazing photographer to capture it all. So needless to say, when we found an incredible Mexican restaurant under the Brooklyn Bridge, we were sold immediately. Our love for tacos and margaritas may be the only rival to our love for each other. Gran Electrica was absolutely the best choice when it came to the aesthetic and ambience we imagined. Ben, of Weddings by Two, captured every perfect moment of our smile-filled day.
What was the most memorable moment?
Answering this question is like choosing a favorite flavor of ice cream. I think one of my favorite moments was riding around in the back of the vintage checker cab we hired. It was just the two of us in the backseat, riding down the small cobblestone streets before the ceremony. It gave us time to be alone together, dizzy with anticipation.It’s a lot like was A.A. Milne said in The House at Pooh Corner, “Well, said Pooh, ‘what I like best-’ and then he had to stop and think. Because although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Enjoy every tiny moment—of course on the wedding day itself, but also on all the days leading up to it. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of a bride’s to do list, but at the end of the day, you’re just throwing a party—and the best kind of party, too. A love party!
