Today’s gorgeous wedding feature comes to us through 60 State Place in Albany. Robert+Justin’s wedding was absolutely beautiful, and Robert has graciously volunteered to narrate us through the wedding to kick things off!
“After over 13 years together, we wanted to take all of the best elements of the countless weddings we’ve attended together and roll them all into one spectacular event. In an age where things have become increasingly casual, it’s so rare that people have the opportunity to attend black tie events. We wanted our wedding to be the perfect excuse to have our family and friends wear something beautiful, feel really glamorous and party the night away. And, of course, that meant that there would be bubbly served before the ceremony even started!
We also wanted a way to incorporate as much of our family as possible. That meant having our brothers as our best men, Justin’s nieces and nephew and Robert’s cousins children making up the wedding party and Justin’s sister in law and Robert’s cousins doing readings during the ceremony. Their support has meant the world to us and having them all play a part in the day was an incredible honor.
The gold glitter disc garland was one of the first things that went onto a wedding inspiration Pinterest board and it ended up becoming a common thread throughout the wedding design motif. From the garland curtain and the confetti at the ceremony to the guestbook and the cocktail napkins at the reception, the gold circles popped up. And gold glitter helped to add just the perfect amount of sparkle everywhere.
As for special traditions, we had a stone ritual for the holy water before the ceremony to help bring a little part of every guest into the service and a Scandinavian love poem that’s regularly used during Norwegian weddings to pay homage to Robert’s familial roots.”
First, we kick things off with this beautiful video:
