Modern + Luxurious Wedding Day Style | Manhattan Shoot

The Manhattan skyline is a sight that sends a thrill zipping up your spine, making your heart beat a little faster—there's so much style, edge, and timeless beauty all wrapped into one vista.

That spectacular scene set the stage for this rooftop editorial packed with a variety of bridal style inspiration for the modern bride. Created in collaboration with Bridal Reflections NYC, it features wedding dresses and bridal headpieces. Each wedding day look is paired with fabulous bridal hairstyles and makeup by Senada K. and Lauren D'Amelio.


Bridal Style for Classic Brides


Between its off-the-shoulder neckline, bustier bodice, embroidery, and appliqué, this Eve of Milady ballgown is all grace and timeless romance. Our gold, silver, and crystal bridal headband is the perfect piece to add a little sparkle. Its pretty botanical theme complements the wedding dress's details and low-bun hairstyle. This wedding look transitions beautifully to cooler months when finished with a fabulous wrap by Stephan Yearick!






A Vintage-Inspired Wedding Look

Brides whose big day is influenced by The Great Gatsby, this one is for you! The deep V-front and back of this silky, form-following Leah da Gloria gown are very 1920s, especially when finished with the dramatic Stephen Yearick bridal wrap. Here, we've added a sparkling statement hair vine styled to follow the model's sleek hairstyle and frame her face. However, all sorts of bridal hair accessories—such as an Art Deco headband, comb, or halo—would enhance the overall look.






A Chic Special Day

A little architectural edge is perfect for an NYC wedding day! We could also see this look in an art gallery, industrial space, or hip hotel. This strapless Galia Lahav wedding dress is draped to flatter the waist, and a thigh-high slit gives you a serious leg moment! The bridal cape is also by Galia Lahav—we love the super modern shoulder seams. They not only look great but will help ensure the piece stays put. When it comes to wedding hair accessories, a bridal hair comb or hair pins would be a great touch, but we think all that polish calls for something dramatic and unexpected. A bridal halo complements this look and shows off the model's chignon hairstyle.



Bridal Style for a New York Fairytale

Wedding tiaras are the choice of royalty when it comes to bridal hair accessories, and our rooftop princess is no different! Her Galia Lahav gown with long, sheer sleeves and corsetted bodice has a delicacy and grandeur, while her wedding day hairstyle has a contemporary feel. The tiara we chose is dramatic, dainty, and encrusted with so many crystals it dazzles the eye!




Big Day Romance 

Bohemian brides who trend classic, these looks are for you! The pretty vines winding around this Leah da Gloria gown are a nod to your free spirit. Meanwhile, its structure and sensational train read glamorous. Instead of a flower crown as the wedding accessory, we went for a stunning bridal hair vine—its style captures the natural feel of the model's flowing, down-do hairstyle.

Then there's the Stephan Yearick wedding dress, whose divine, asymmetrical ruffle and pearl-embroidered lace is runway ready and has a touch of A Midsummer Night's Dream feel. There are so many ways to go as far as seeing hair accessories! In this case, we wanted to highlight the romance. Encrusted with crystals, our floral bridal hair vine does just that and is a lovely complement to the model's long waves.




Unique Regal Style

Tradition and contemporary meet in this final wedding day look! There's so much luxe detail to adore within the model's Galia Lahav gown. Plus, striking a fierce pose will be a piece of cake thanks to that gorgeous, killer slit! Our gold and silver crystal bridal headband matches the dress's grandeur and echoes its beautiful embroidery and appliqué details.
