Good morning, lovelies! Today we are happy to share some urban chic inspiration with this beautiful bridal shoot styled by Tzo Ai of Ang Weddings and Events. Georgi of Maggie Marguerite Studios captured all the fashionable, eco-friendly details on the newly extended High Line, one of our favorite spots for gorgeous bridal photos. For those of you not in the know, the High Line was an old railroad track, built in the 30's, which was recently converted into an elevated public park. Tzo Ai was inspired by this creative way to recycle something unused into something beautiful - and she built an entire shoot around this theme!
The skyline of New York and the wild greenery of the High Line created a unique backdrop for this eco-green bridal shoot. Urban, organic and wild elements influenced the entire wedding design, and the fresh, yet chic color palette of green, cream and brown with hints of purple and yellow drove home the eco-chic theme.
The bride wore two gowns from Modern Trousseau, whose eco-conscious mission is to use leftover material from production to create their sashes and belts, leaving little to waste. Both dresses had floral detailing to complement the lush greenery of the décor. We particularly love the second look, the vintage long lace sleeves and short hemline were a mix of old and new just like the High Line. The bridesmaid wore a lovely short dress in a chic chocolate colorway, by 57 Grand.
After the couple's first look pictures at the High Line, the photo shoot continued on with a small picnic, with delicious pastries from Billy's Bakery. Afterwords, Tzo Ai designed a tablescape at Klee Brasserie, where the food was inspired by local, seasonal and organic ingredients such as yellow heirloom beets growing out of pumpernickel soil. She used crystal chargers, crystal candle ware and wooden napkin rings to complement the modern, but approachable design of the restaurant.
Blush Designs created the beautiful flowers. They chose to use a mix of traditional flowers with some contemporary touches to reflect the simplicity of the park with the contrasting urban skyline.
