Lauren and Matt were married at The Bowery Hotel in the fall. Four years after the day the met. They loved rich fall colours and Poppies and Posies brought their vision to life with crimson, coral and berry tones. The floral decor had a warm autumnal feel, and complimented the exposed brick walls, vintage rugs and iron chandeliers of the boutique hotel perfectly. R Wagner Photography captured their special day with these beautiful images.
Lauren got ready at The Bowery Hotel in a bridal suite with a large terrace which offered stunning views of downtown Manhattan.
I adore these vintage stamps that they used on their invitations.
How radiant does the Bride look in her Monique Lhuillier gown? It was a little chilly that day, but Lauren donned a shrug and braved the elements to take portraits outside with Matt. I'm so glad they did make use of the remaining natural light that day. I love how the wind was playing with Lauren's veil in this picture.
Instead of a string trio for the ceremony, they chose to do a quartet of cellos. The sound of four cellos was so rich and luxurious. Tying in again with the overall feel of their wedding day.
The escort cards were individually pinned to miniature pears. So cute!
In lieu of a wedding cake, Lauren and Matt had a dessert table with treats from Sugar Sweet Sunshine and their favourite candies. Guests were hitting it hard all night. A great way to refuel from dancing! Every time I looked around again it was time to replenish the table. Later into the night, an African drummer joined the DJ and kept the energy of the room pumping.
It was such a gorgeous fall wedding celebrating the love of two people who are a perfect match for each other. Lauren had saved the receipt from their first date, because she knew things would lead to this special day. Congratulations again to Lauren and Matt!
