Victoria and Matthew knew NYC was the only place for them to combine their love, and they did so in a glorious way. Elegance and tradition lead the way with plenty of nontraditional elements to make the day truly theirs.

A pink and white color palette perfectly echoed an atmosphere of romance and elegance. Feel free to drool over all the swoon-worthy details from this classic white and pink wedding in the full gallery here, captured by Casey Fatchett Photography.

Why you should have two videographers

From The Bride: I had one videographer for the day, who came to my moms house while the girls and I got ready, and the getting ready footage is some of my favorite from the day. I only wish I had hired a second videographer to do the same at my husband’s family’s house. I would have loved to have video footage of him and the boys getting ready! When I began to think of the vision for our day, two words kept coming to mind, romantic and whimsical. I wanted our love to be present in every detail. I wanted warm hues, tons of candles, and classic, traditional flowers. With the help and guidance of our talented wedding planner, Danielle Elder, of Classic Events NYC, my vision started to come to life.

stray from the traditional

We also strayed from some “traditional” wedding things — after the ceremony, instead of hopping on the party bus with our wedding party, Matthew and I drove to pictures and then on to the reception venue in our own car – this gave us a chance to have a moment to ourselves to celebrate just the two of us. We did not have our band introduce our whole wedding, just us. We also made sure our pictures were finished in time for us to enjoy our cocktail hour with our guests because – let’s be honest – that’s usually the best part! We cut our cake off to the side of the party – the photographer & videographer were there, but we didn’t want to stop the band and the party for it, and we had a cute intimate moment together amidst the celebration. My advice would be, don’t feel like you have to do traditional wedding procedures just because you’ve seen them done over and over again. Your wedding is about you and your significant other, and you should mold it to fit exactly what you like!

Travel-themed decor

Check out the sweet vintage bridesmaids dresses and train cases (part of their “travel/journey” wedding theme), the letter lapel pins on the groomsmen, the wedding favor packaging, the table settings, the chalk board maps of the grounds, the globe/vintage book stack/floral centerpieces, the cocktail hour props, the paper airplane escort cards– it was endless! During the reception, Ron surprised the crowd by guest-scratching a few records while Des took over the dance floor. Things got wild– it was quite a night!

Brides advice on choosing a dress

Spend some time alone to reflect and try to see things before your guests begin to file in. Our amazing planners provided us the opportunity to see our reception before guests had begun to take their seats and it was absolutely mind-blowing, just completely gorgeous and exactly what we had hoped for. If you had the chance to create DIY projects, go observe them, see how much people appreciate all the little details, really see how it all comes together! Choose a dress that you feel comfortable wearing throughout the day and is agreeable with the activities of this one hectic day – frantically walking place to place, posing for photos, dancing and dropping it like it’s hot! I had an A-line dress that was free-flowing, composed of lightweight fabrics and, above all, comfortable!
