Lauren + Mike: A Fuchsia and Black NYC-Themed Wedding by Calynn Berry
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Q: What’s black, white, and hot pink all over? A: Lauren and Mike’s modern NYC-themed nuptials! Though this Manhattan-based couple married in Rochester, Michigan, the Big Apple was a major source of inspiration for their glam ballroom wedding. “Ever since I saw the Sex & the City movie, I knew that I wanted black bridesmaid dresses with bright fuchsia flowers,” says Lauren. With the help of Courtney at Petals Planning Company, the rest of the graphic decor followed suit! Thanks to photographer Calynn Berry for sharing her images of this metropolitan celebration.

Mike and Lauren met as undergrads at the University of Michigan, but didn’t start dating until a post-college move brought Lauren to the East Coast (she’s originally from Michigan). After six years of dating, Mike proposed in one of the most epic ways possible: with an airplane! One weekend at his parents’ Long Island home, he arranged for a propeller to fly circles around the property dragging an “I ♥ You Lauren! Will You Marry Me?” banner.  Quite the romantic gesture, don’t you think?

The graphic black, white, and fuchsia reception was equal parts playful and chic. Polka dot tablecloths were accented with striped runners (yay for pattern mixing!), and tall black candelabras stood alongside single color floral centerpieces to round out the decor. Instead of a traditional numbering system, the couple named each table after relationship-relevant spots in NYC. Mike’s propeller plane also made a second appearance—be sure to check out the full gallery to see how!

Because no New York-themed wedding would be complete without a copy of The New York Times, the couple saved an issue from the day so that they could photograph the headlines alongside their wedding rings. They also snuck out mid-ceremony for a few private pictures with sparklers and strings of light. Thanks again to Caylnn Berry for sharing the celebration with us—head to the full gallery to see even more details of the day (including the “I ♥ NY”-inspired wedding logo and a cute-as-a-button flower girl).
