Whitney & Ryan: We Love New York

Whitney and Ryan’s intimate destination wedding was held in the heart of New York City. The rooftop at The NoMad Hotel provided the magical setting for their Secret Garden theme. From the long stem rose bouquet and centrepieces to the gorgeous floral details on the chairs and wedding cake, this stylish wedding is full of immaculate details. Mango Studios was on hand to capture their celebration, including portraits and candids in the city streets.

From The Bride…When we got engaged we went back and forth with what we wanted. We wanted something small and intimate, but we didn’t want to exclude people. So we settled on a 30 person New York wedding with best friends and family, and a bigger party back in Toronto the following weekend. New York was our “wedding”, so we wanted it to be perfect. We looked at venues from the Central Park Zoo to the New York Public Library…but nothing felt intimate and right. Then we came across the rooftop at the NoMad Hotel, which was magical. I wanted a wedding with a Secret Garden theme, outdoors, on a rooftop, and the NoMad checked every box! It was exactly what we wanted and the night was exactly as we had envisioned it. Tyler and Sharon took photos that reflected the precise feel of the day. Working in the industry (as a wedding planner for 10 years no less!), I had high standards. Mango Studios managed to exceed them. We have a ton of candids — legitimate memories that Mango somehow managed to capture on camera. Looking back at the photos, even though we only had 30 guests, Mango managed to convey our story: one full of love, happiness and intimacy.
