I have yet to find anyone who captures moments quite like Charlotte Jenks Lewis. Those moments of unabashed love and emotion that make up the pieces of a perfect wedding. Well, this garden Bronx affair, my loves, is filled with them and Charlotte captured it all like no one else could. Take a look for yourself in the gorgeous full gallery and the Super 8 film feature sitting pretty below.
From the Bride…Matt and I met in New York City and we both feel that this city is our home. We knew we wanted to get married in New York, but didn’t want a traditional city setting. When I discovered Wave Hill, I knew it was the perfect place. The views are magnificent and the overgrown English gardens are very romantic – you feel as though you have walked into a secret garden. I work in the arts and was very inspired by Wave Hill’s art program when designing the wedding. The art installations complement the natural beauty of the surroundings. Working off of that simplicity, and nature, I chose a simple palate of green and white. Our invitation was inspired by the wallpaper at Wave Hill on my first visit there. The wallpaper was created by the artist Anda Dubinskis, and lined the entrance of the Glyndor Galleries. The invitation is essentially this wallpaper recreated in two layers. The setting and food were wonderful, but ultimately it was the band that made the night so much fun! To see all of our friends and family dancing together was a feeling I will never forget. We actually picked the date of our wedding based on the band’s availability. And as fate would have it, my great grandmother was married exactly one hundred years earlier – I even wore her ring from 1912 walking down the aisle.
