From Wayne Yuan Photography... Yellow and gray are definitely a winning combo when it comes to a modern, chic wedding. Sheryl and Mike had their wedding at the National Newark Building—an old bank converted into one of the coolest and most inspiring spaces for a grand celebration! Its entrance staircase opens up to a grand foyer where the bride and groom held their cocktail hour; the old teller windows became clever places for mini drink bars. It was a yellow and lemony wonderland of gumdrops, candies, and their signature drink (lemon drops) dripping from an ice sculpture of the building itself! With everything sprinkled in cheerful yellow details, it was the perfect setting for friends and family to catch up and mingle under the amazing Art Deco architecture.

To one side of the foyer was the ceremony, where Sheryl and Mike recited their vows beside their entourage of suspender-wearing groomsmen and chic bridesmaids sporting fun spring accessories made by the bride herself! An old bank vault transformed into a movie set for unique "mafia-inspired" bridal party portraits, so appropriate for this fun group of friends who were up for something a little less traditional. The reception was set up on the opposite side of the foyer, where every little table card and name tag was designed to coordinate with the neo-classical style of the architecture. A live jazz quartet welcomed their guests into the beautiful banquet room, and everyone sent the happy couple on their way with a parade of sparklers (Approved by the local fire department of course!) to end the evening. It was a beautiful day with a fun couple who brought so much character and personal detail to this event—their guests will certainly remember and talk about this day for many years to come.
