We're serving up some awesome New York City-style wedding porn from Brooklyn-based sponsor Samantha Gore Photography. Samantha's clients, Kelley and George, had a simple, close family and friends-only, Armenian wedding, with some vintage-styling.
If you're a New York bride you're going to want to pay attention because Kelley and George's wedding is dripping with Big Apple goodness, including a great idea for an easy bouquet, a fabulous New York wedding site, and an old world Armenian ceremony. On top of all that, Samantha Gore is also gonna hook you up with her special discount.
Kelley got ready for the wedding with her parents at her Manhattan loft. How adorable was this moment between her and her father? I love the lighting and the delighted smiles. This almost looks like it should be a magazine ad!
Here's an awesome idea, for you New Yorkers… Between getting ready and heading uptown to her wedding, Kelley took a stroll to her neighborhood bodega to grab a fresh bouquet! I just love the dreaminess of this photo. Kelley looks so calm, the flowers look so pretty, and Samantha just nailed this shot.
Kelley and George got married at the St. Vartan Cathedral. Samantha explains the symbolism behind this ceremony photo:
The St. Vartan Cathedral is the first cathedral of the Armenian Apostolic Church to be built in North America. It is a beautiful construction with unique features distinct to Armenian Architecture. The ceremony was the same one that the Armenian church has performed for over 1000 years, where the donning of capes and crowns, the burning of sage, and traditional songs sung by a small choir set it apart from most modern Christian ceremonies.
After the ceremony, Kelley and George hailed a cab (OMG the New Yorkness is just killing me, guys!) to go celebrate in the wine cellar of the famous 21 club (see what I mean?!).
Now it's YOUR turn to celebrate, because of Samantha's special discount!
