W Hotel Union Square Wedding: Congratulations Adriana and Dom!

Adriana and Dom were married on Halloween weekend in NYC. Their wedding was very city chic, featuring black and white details at the W Hotel Union Square, but also with fun pops of Halloween whimsy.

Adriana shares, “Inscribed in Dom’s wedding band is not the date we were getting married 10/28/17, it’s the date we first met 9/19/14. I want to remember this date because it’s the date that the most unexpected chance encounter happened between two people who were in the right place at the right time and not looking for love but working on loving and living their best life for themselves.

From choosing Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” but letting it lead into UB40’s reggae infused version, our wedding was the perfect combination of “edgy elegance.” We went classic and timeless more or less in everything we chose for this wedding but, where there was room for a pop of our personalities, humor and a little sass, we went for it.

Our signature drinks “The Golden Girl” and “The Good Fella” speak perfectly to our personalities and the ways in which we managed to tie our interests and humor into any element of this wedding we could. White constructed bouquets were also something I helped design with Stacy – we decided we wanted to do as much white as possible but in an edgy way.

I let my bridesmaids wear what they wanted as long as it was black and to the floor, I wanted my friends to dress true to themselves and the style that worked best and I love the mix of cuts, styles and looks in one photo.

I love white, I love black, I love Halloween and I love my husband Dom.

Thank you, Jess, for capturing a classic New York fall wedding with a side order of sass!”

Adriana adds, “I had the most fun incorporating the subtle pops of Halloween references from Dom’s skull cufflinks to our bags at the candy bar customized to read “Happy Halloween, love the BOO-cchinos.” I was living for every little moment I could add my own personality into the day. If you are going to choose to get married on Halloween weekend you need to do something!!! The all-white candy bar was my favorite idea. I worked hard with my amazing planner Stacy from FLO NY Events to do a candy bar that was chic and monochromatic with pops of Halloween. It was my favorite thing to construct and see come to life at the wedding.”
