Upstate New York Vintage Inspired Wedding: Laura + Phil

Historic Building Wedding

When you couple up a pair of creatives, you’re no doubt going to have one gorgeous wedding. Laura is a wedding photographer by trade – so she definitely knows a pretty thing or two. Her darling Phil is a graphic designer, whose work you would definitely recognize: The Twitter Bird (seriously!). The dreamy day planned out by Intuition Events included a parade downtown, a gorgeous rooftop view and an amazing dance party. Held at the Takk House in upstate New York, this wedding is brimming with beautiful imagery by Dylan and Sara.

The bride shares From my experience in the industry and both of our creative backgrounds we had a pretty good idea of how we envisioned our wedding day unfolding. For decor we went with a natural/bohemian vibe that included lots of greenery, gold accents, macrame backdrops, wicker chairs, mismatched lace tablecloths. With all of the wedding related decisions, we just went with what felt right and true to us.

We can’t wait any longer… Let’s look!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

Our first look was immensely special and will stay with me forever, but our second line parade is a close second. Having just said our vows and had our first kiss as husband and wife, the parade was perfect to match that level of happiness.

We love the lighting in this photo – the way it illuminates the room, but there are still dark + moody corners.

wedding parade

How fun is this?! Extremely common in New Orleans, the wedding second line is a parade that celebrates the newlyweds as they embark on a new life together. The ‘main line’ is traditionally the married couple and a brass band, while the ‘second line’ is the wedding party and any passerby who wants to join in on the celebration!
