I seriously don't even know where to start with introducing this wedding. Between Freddy Krueger, Chewbacca, salon puppies, and copious amounts of alcohol…it was a hell of a weekend. Phil and Taline got ready at the STUNNING Paper Factory Hotel, and were married at The Museum of The Moving Image in Astoria.
If I could permanently move into and reside at one of the above locations, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Gimme all the modern industrial charm and tv/film history!
They designed all their own invites and paper goods! I love working with fellow creatives.
Strangers make for the best photo-ops on wedding days! How cute is this little girl!
Taline does production design, so we couldn't resist.
She also goes by 'T.V.', so….we HAD to.
They opted for a traditional ring-warming during the ceremony! I love that.
Making it official.
Making flip books for posterity!
How sweet. Fresh meat.
(~I spy my handsome man tryna get a drank~ )
Taline's resemblance to her grams (pictured below) is UNCANNY.
Taline's dad MADE this amazing cake. I wish my dad made me cakes.
So much 'stache envy. Hey, it's me! (thanks Amy!) Killin' it with these parent dances, guys. Um, did I mention there was traditional Armenian dancing?! There was traditional Armenian dancing. You should seize every possible selfie opportunity, ESPECIALLY on your wedding day. After the party, we all headed down to Sunswick in Astoria for some post-reception drinks and cigars!
I think I know who's getting married next. Is there anything sexier than a bride HOUSING chicken wings? Didn't think so.
Phil and Taline could write a book on how to have the perfect wedding, and they probably should. We've already got the artwork covered, so it's a perfectly logical thing that we should probably do.
Special thanks to Amy Semple for assisting and second shooting with me, Studio Nova for having the cutest puppy at your ultra cool salon, BG at the museum for being so accommodating and helpful, and the writers and creators of Mad Men for creating such a COOL show to further create such a COOL exhibit at the museum that we sadly, couldn't shoot in. Oh, and thanks for getting married, Taline and Phil. Couldn't have done it without you.
