This Metropolitan Building Wedding was a dream wedding. I’m lost for words so here’s what Junebug Weddings had to say:
“Between its whimsical florals, 90s hip hop, and raw oyster bar, we can’t get enough of this unique Metropolitan Building wedding! Christine and Luke knew they wanted their wedding to feel lively, dreamy, and celebratory, so they incorporated DIY elements and personal touches in every inch of their decor. Christine’s lace Watters gown had an amazing illusion neckline and off-the-shoulder style, while Luke wore a slate blue Hugo Boss suit to complement their wedding’s moody and subdued color scheme. Loreto Caceres Photography captured the couple’s special day, including an especially emotional first look, in this charming NYC venue”.
Christine had this to say about choosing the venue:
“While looking at venues we’d ask ourselves if we’d want to attend a wedding there. The Metropolitan Building was an immediate yes. It has the feel of a beautiful weathered old estate. The charm in all the imperfect details of the space really spoke to us and helped set the mood”.
Their ceremony was definitely one to remember. It had everyone laughing and crying at the same time. From the bride:
We wrote our own vows and had a family friend officiate which made the ceremony feel more like us sharing a moment and less like a traditional service. Having our dog walk down our aisle first also helped set the tone. We wanted it to feel intimate but lighthearted and while there were some tearful moments, there were so much joy and laughter.
