how to be a badass at your fall wedding

Bond, James Bond... that name summons up a theme song in all of our heads, as we point finger guns at an imaginary camera. This legend is one we all love to emulate male or female, but speaking to all the ladies out there; Who hasn't fantasized about being a Bond babe a least once or twice (Anything to have those icy blue eyes of Daniel Craig stare into mine...Hmm what?! oh yeah weddings) This next styled shoot will show you just how to be a badass bond babe at your fall wedding!

Playing With The Era

From Gina Esposito: If 1958 met 2018 in the crisp, minimalist palette of a Manhattan penthouse, this would be the scene. A nuanced editorial, surrounding a dynamic leading lady at the intersection of elevated glamour and playful sophistication. In short—the story of a modern, Bond Girl bride.

Inspired, perhaps, by the iconic alter ego of the traditional bride, the concept aimed to strike a balance between past and present, while evoking a sense of intrigue, romance and allure. As an intentional departure from the whimsical garden weddings of late, we opted to tell a story that explores a variety of modernist-fem fashion looks, set against a backdrop of sweeping city views and rich, vintage details.

Table decor + Styling

For decor, Please B Seated provided rentals to help transform the space. A chocolate wooden table, espresso benches, mixed chairs, gold savoy dinnerware and a lush green hedge to contrast the urbane environment with natural textures.

Amanda Pierce Productions styled florals from the bouquet to the tablescape, incorporating sultry, velvety amaranths, purple ranunculus and pale roses.

This interplay of decade and era was also mirrored in the age-inspired engagement ring from Marisa Perry Atelier and the of-the-moment edge of the three-tier, black dahlia and berry cake by Pip n Bits. Altogether, each piece of the story converges into an aesthetic that conveys mood, polish, texture, drama, and assertive, intelligent style for the Bond Girl bride and beyond.

The dresses

The Penthouse at Hotel on Rivington in New York City served as the primary location—offering its sleek skyline and signature staircase as the ideal canvas for a vaguely mischievous, metropolitan affair. Bridal designer Nathalie Kraynina outfitted our model in four unique looks, fulfilling the requisite number of Bond Girl wardrobe changes with elegant separates including beaded long sleeve and tulle tops with flirtatious skirts featuring layered pleats, nude mesh and silk floral detailing.

Hair + Makeup

Hairstylist, Michael Glorioso and Makeup Artist, Stephanie Perez, collaborated to create an old Hollywood-inspired look styled to bring a classic timelessness to the otherwise structured, modernist silhouettes of Nathalie’s bridal designs. The looks culminated with a bold after-party scene, set in the hotel’s retro-chic Jia Lounge.
