It’s final time here for Meg and Tripp, so if you missed any of the beautiful day one shots by Story Motion Studios, or the ceremony that was inspired by one of our inspiration boards (yahoo!) I definitely suggest that you go back and take a peek.  But now, for all of those who have been waiting, we have Meg and Tripp’s glorious reception with décor by Partyland Flowers & Event Décor. I just love this sharp, elegant black & lime green palette.  It sets a formal tone that is fun and anything but stuffy.

You guys are probably laughing because I posted so many pictures of that little elephant.  I just think it is SO super cute!

From Trisha at Working Brides : The reception tent was so beautiful with the chandeliers and the elegant black linens. Meg really wanted long tables, but due to space we had to go with a mix. I think the 2 long "Kings" tables went really well w/ the scattered rounds. Dinner was served family style so the guests were able to feast on how ever much they desired. After dinner we had a great lounge set up for chatting, but many guests opted to dance the night away on with  our NYC band Park Avenue. They were AWESOME!!

I knew that shoe picture would get everyone excited, and how much fun does Tripp seem like?! Anyhow, I asked Katya and Arthur, of StoryMotion Studios, to share with us their favorite image from Meg and Tripp’s wedding.  Drum roll please!

From Story MotionStudios : One of our fellow photographers once said that that our work looks like “it came off the pages of National Geographic. It’s very bright and colorful, and it’s full of stories.” In our photographs we always strive to look for unusual angles, dimensional lighting, interesting details, and, most importantly, emotions that will allow even strangers feel as if they are part of the celebration themselves.

Here is one of our favorite images from Meg and Tripp’s wedding, which happens to be one of Meg getting dressed. Bride’s preparation is often one of the most hectic, yet intimate moments of the wedding day. It’s usually bride’s opportunity to spend time with her closest family and friends in anticipation of the ceremony and of the bride’s reveal for the first time in her full wedding attire. We found that with South Asian weddings this time is even more moving because of a very elaborate and fascinating process of dressing of the bride. “Authentic Stories. Sincere Emotions. True Art.” are the words that not only define our work, but also this photograph. Meg’s Mom and Aunties are busy wrapping her sari, while Meg is chatting with her sister, who’s on the other side of the room. The light in this photograph shows off vibrant colors and transparency of Meg’s sari, allowing us to even see through the fabric Meg’s reception dress that’s hanging off the armoire handle. Above all, we love the emotion of the image, and unusual angle that gives intimate feel to the photograph.

Congratulations Meg and Tripp, and to all the vendors that made their fairytale day a reality:
