Are you ready for some epic eye candy? I've just been so excited to share this shoot with you; and am even more thrilled now that BRIDES magazine's newly designed blog, Aisle Say, has picked it up as well...
Merci New York recently worked alongside Adrienne Colosimo of Bespoke Affairs to create a Art-Deco inspired fashion shoot that speaks to the city bride. Photographed by Brian DeMello, the images represent the very first bridal fashion shoot atop the legendary Chrysler building.
About the shoot:
As young New York City based event designers and stylists, Adrienne and I both adore transforming bare spaces into luxe vignettes, and gritty city locales into posh fetes. But no project has been half as exciting or scintillating as the one we were faced with this spring.
On a Friday, we received a once in a lifetime opportunity to produce and design a jaw-dropping bridal editorial shoot atop the Chrysler building.
That next Tuesday, we made it happen - marking the first-ever bridal editorial shoot on the historic, landmark building.
As an iconic part of the New York City skyline, the Chrysler Building is a masterpiece of Art Deco architecture and one of the finest buildings in Manhattan.
Having mere hours to construct and execute our vision, we decided to pay homage to the buildingʼs design, and style the bride with an Art Deco sensibility, all while keeping the look current and obtainable.
We called on some trusted friends in the industry to help complete the look, and couldn't be more pleased with the inspiring outcome. We hope that you will enjoy the beauty and grace of our bride soaring above New York's majestic cityscape. Film Noir meets Gotham City.
