“Our inspiration for this shoot was a modern elopement in the city of all cities: New York,” says Jordan of Smitten Events.

There is so much going on in New York at all hours of the day, but the team focused their efforts on styling this shoot in a clean and crisp monochromatic colour scheme. With a palette of shades of white, grey and black, the team was able to tie in some non-traditional elements.

After all, this is New York City we’re talking about. It’s full of character. Smitten Events pulled in quirky details such as miniature taxis and apples, as well as fortune cookie place card holders and "enjoy" tags supplied by Weddingstar to add a personal touch.

In a city full of life and music, the scroll with lyrics from a quintessentially New York song—Empire State of Mind, Pt II—brings energy and inspiration to the setting.

Christina of Fox & Flourish designed the stationery, adding a touch of elegance through her modern yet romantic calligraphy.

The styling was complete from head to toe, with scrumptious donuts to feed mouths and peep-toe shoes to show off those manicured feet.

“Where dreams are made of / there’s nothing you can’t do now you’re in New York / these streets will make you feel brand new / the lights will inspire you”

We hope you’re inspired too.
