The W Loft in Williamsburg with the Manhattan skyline in the background was the perfect setting for Calen and Estevan's New York wedding. The big windows and wide open spaces were the ideal complement to the couple's modern chic style.
On the proposal
Estevan organized a dinner in North Sydney for Calen to give her a Christmas gift as they had been apart with their families for the holidays. They met up before the dinner and were walking along the pier when Estevan’s friends delivered the gift. It was a large hat box and while Calen was holding the box, Estevan took off the lid and out popped a balloon attached to an archer on a ribbon. The balloon said ‘will you marry me’ and Estevan got down on one knee and proposed. “Little did I know the group of friends came from behind us and were FaceTiming our entire family on this moment of life. Later I found out that Estevan had asked my parents for my hand in marriage prior to this moment.”
On the venue
Calen and Estevan got married overlooking the Manhattan skyline at the picturesque W Loft in Williamsburg, New York. The space was perfect for this couple as it had all the elements they wanted for their wedding and plenty of space to hold the entire event. “It was simplistic, modern chic and with still a little bit of a rustic Spring feel.”
All the styling details
With the perfect space already locked down, Calen and Estevan wanted to keep the styling of their wedding clean and elegant with pops of lilac and lush greenery.
Calen perfectly wore the Emelia gown from our Bespoke collection which she purchased from our Sydney boutique.
“The sample just fit my body, I didn’t need any alterations, I felt like myself in it and it was comfortable.”
Gown hunting tips
“Find one that you feel portrays who you are and your character because it makes the special day feel that much better because you aren’t worrying about the dress on that day.”
