A Wild New Jersey Wedding with Drag Performers, Gothic Touches and Mutual Weirdness Forever

The Art Factory, a specious historic loft space in New jersey, was the ideal location for Jordan and Matthew’s creative wedding, They wanted complete control over the day and to not have any restrictions on what they could or could not do, and so the blank canvas, dry hire space was ideal.

Their main goal for the wedding was to throw a wild party while showing off their gothic and alternative personal style. They were able to bring in their own alcohol (which saved a pretty penny) and they were able to party until 5am – wow!

Whimsical, Fairy-like & Magical New York Elopement

Jen and Chris eloped on October 31 in New York City. The day was filled with cute personalised touches with an almost whimsical and almost fairy-like aesthetic. However the most important thing to them both having their ceremony in their own way. “Our ceremony was simple and we did not want to have any guests”, Jen began. “We said our vows to each other and promised that we would be together forever. That is how we wanted to get married and we are so happy we did it this way. There was no stress to impress others.”

Jen’s own personal style was the main inspiration for the day and this was reflected in her vintage dresses, flower crown and jewellery and even their ring tattoos that they got done end of the day. “We didn’t strive to make our wedding stand out or be different”, Jen continued. “We just wanted it to be special and fully ours. Our biggest worry beforehand was what the weather would be like! Leading up to the wedding day all of our weather apps were saying it would rain 100%. On the morning of the wedding there was some rain, but once we were ready to go out and get married the rain stopped!”

Fun New York Rooftop Wedding with a Pink Suit!

Joe and Beth got engaged on a rooftop in New York, and as they love it there so much, decided it would make the perfect setting for their August wedding, too. They set out to create a day that was not only memorable for them, but showcased to their friends and family exactly what they love about the Big Apple.

With a budget of £15,000, they were married on the rooftop of the Rivington Hotel  on the lower east side – this wasn’t the original plan, their original venue cancelled on them, but it turned out much better than they were expecting, thankfully! They focused their budget on aspects that were important to them – catering, as they didn’t want people to be hungry, and DIY’d elements to not only save money, but to get their friends and family involved in the festivities. For a wedding breakfast they bought in platters of local delicatessen, lobster rolls and a mashup of Milkbar confetti cake and doughnuts for their wedding cake.

Simple & Vintage Inspired, Sentimental New York Wedding

Andrew and Ariana met just over five years ago at a tattoo shop in the Lower East Side neighbourhood of New York City. The owner of the shop, a mutual friend, had been scheming for months to try to get the couple together and the timing finally worked out on Andrew’s birthday in 2015. They spent the night dancing and making out at a dive bar downtown and that was it – from that point on they were inseparable. Their next date, just three days later, lasted for thirteen hours. “We knew that was it” said Ariana.

When it came to planning their wedding day, they knew that they wanted to keep things simple and modern, knowing that their venue – the Metropolitan Building – had all the special details and vintage accents to make it unique. Also as Ariana work in event production for a living, she knows exactly how exhausting and stressful planning an event can be.

“My goal with our wedding was to keep everything as simple and stress-free as possible. We wanted to be able to enjoy every minute without having to worry about tiny details and manage multiple vendors all day, so we chose a space that was as all-inclusive as possible. Our venue offered a vast collection of antique furniture to decorate the space, and we selected pieces in soft greens, pinks and grey to adorn the space. Because the venue was so quirky and intricate, we didn’t need much to bring it to life.”
