The Manhattan skyline was the backdrop for this lovely 1920’s art deco wedding shoot from photographer Judson Rappaport. This couple, their outfits and jewel toned florals make for some beautiful sneak peeks into fall.
The inspiration from this project came from a book the photographer read in college, talking about the semi secret/unknown history of the popularity of Gay culture in the 1920’s in NYC. Alongside the glitz and glamour that’s the 1920’s was known for in cities it was one of the first times gay culture was kind of openly celebrated. So since we are in the 2020’s officially she wanted to create an art deco inspired editorial taking some elements of 1920’s Gatsby-esque party with modern touches. The stylist tried to marry intricate art deco patterns with modern more minimal decor and utilizing florals to bring in the romantic touches to our 1920’s inspired details like the champagne cart. The wedding tablescape was extra bold, with an emerald tablecloth, jewel-tone florals, fresh fruit on the table and black cutlery for a modern feel.
One bride was wearing a gorgeously embellished and romantic art deco wedding dress with no sleeves and a V-neckline, a wavy updo and a fantastic white embellished heeled mules. The second bride was wearing a black pantsuit with silk lapels and a plunging neckline with no top on. Her look was finished with black velvet shoes with embellished heels. Both brides were carrying gorgeous dark wedding bouquets with jewel tone blooms and foliage.
