Two architects’ design-focused secret garden wedding
We have such a gorgeous, elegant wedding for you, that also manages to be perfectly playful and upbeat. The best combo, right? Sam + Tess are architects who met six years ago while studying at Yale. They approached their NYC wedding like a creative project, collaborating with Jove Meyer Events and a team of industry talents to bring their vision to life at the historic Knockdown Center, a performance and art space in Queens. Sylvie Rosokoff shares the photos of their secret garden wedding below!
They arranged a welcome dinner at the Brooklyn Grange to spend time with everyone before the big day.
Tess wore a custom Danielle Frankel gown, changing into a structured jumpsuit for the after party. So gorg!
How incredible is this garden backdrop right in the middle of New York City?! The couple was all about channeling an intimate, communal, designed-focused vibe that was just as fun and celebratory was it was beautiful.
The pops of color throughout certainly gave off that relaxed yet elevated vibe for guests!
The wedding was thoughtful, elegant and full of playful design touches… the best kind of creative collaboration.
Absolutely beautiful. Congrats to Tess and Sam!
