Intimate New York Public Library Elopement
Beautiful, refreshing, and sweet... we're feeling all the feels with today's intimate elopement at the prestigious New York Public Library. With architecture reminiscent of European cities and the perfectly minimalistic styling by Emma Natter, could there be a more perfect place to say 'I do'? Take in the dreamy tones of these film photographs by Julie Cate and if you're anything like us, you're probably swooning over this Leanne Marshall gown...
From Emma: "I was really inspired by the often easy elegance in New York City in creating this shoot. Clean, simple lines in her dress reflects the architecture in the library. But beyond the elegant exterior, so many of the greatest collectors in the world house their collections here in New York with textiles and goods from all over the world. I loved bringing together an old rug to use as a tablecloth and some more exotic-feeling florals. Together, these collector items from the tablescape mixed with the clean lines of the portrait session really exhibit New York’s ability to combine the old, the new, and the collected."
From Julie: "New York City is always moving, never sleeping. To get away for a simple elopement the couple woke before the sun and had an intimate wedding followed by pictures at the iconic NYC public library. The architecture of the building is perfect for amazing pictures but also a blank canvas for tighter images of couple."
