I love everything about NYC. I especially admire the dramatic buildings that shape our skyline, so when my photographer friend Brian DeMello called me with a once in a lifetime opportunity to style a bride on the 61st floor mezzanine of the Chrysler Building with its distinctive eagles...I jumped at the chance!! I then contacted NYC blogger and stylist, Jacqueline Weppner of Merci New York, to help me solidify the look and produce with me.

As an iconic part of the NYC skyline, the Chrysler Building is a masterpiece of Art Deco architecture and one of the finest buildings in Manhattan. We decided to pay homage to the building's design, and style the bride with an Art Deco sensibility, all while keeping the look current and obtainable. I hope that you will enjoy the beauty and grace of our bride soaring above NYC's majestic cityscape. Film Noir meets Gotham City.

A huge debt of gratitude goes out to the following (all of which pulled this together in mere days):

A special thank you to Brian DeMello for inviting me along. This was truly an experience that I will never EVER forget.
