Everyone always wants something different, but what does that really mean for a wedding? By its very nature, weddings are imbued with tradition, rituals that make a wedding a wedding. Having said that, is there a way to personalize a wedding so that it feels authentic and reflects the couple who’s getting married? In essence, the inspiration behind this styled shoot was just that: how to take tradition and make it unique.
We wanted a Parisian-inspired theme for this New York City shoot. In New York City, the possibilities are endless but for every wedding, you must prioritize the things you think are most important. This couple would be all about the food, and so started with a venue that they knew could provide the delish meal that all their guests would appreciate. The next big-ticket item was the flowers. We wanted lush, lively, unique arrangements and chose a color palette to reflect the mood we aimed to achieve: lavender and ivory with gold accents. The French plates on the sweetheart table provided just another touch of class.
The stationery provided a warm winter feel with the lavender-velvet look that was used on the invitations and the menus. The main dinner table had a full, table-length ivory lace overlay. The clear chargers, purple candles, and gold vases were all carefully chosen to help enhance the dining experience.
For a smaller space, we didn’t want large, traditional gowns, but wanted to add a little classic touch with the veil. Traditional bridesmaids’ dresses didn’t fit the bill either, so we went with shorter dresses with elaborate detailing.
Every element, from the centerpiece down to the cake was carefully selected to provide a classic yet modern twist to a traditional rite of passage.

It all started with an idea. An idea about a perfect wedding in winter wonderland.
Cold months weddings in New York City are not as popular as summer or fall ones but Diana at Diana LaMer Events wanted to challenge that stereotype with breathtaking designs and magazine-quality photographs.
A winter wonderland “Walk Through The Woods” styled wedding shoot matched Intercontinental New York Barclay ballroom’s decor perfectly: the grey and blue-ish motifs got our team’s creative juices flowing.
After a million of back-and-forth texts, emails, and Instagram messages, Diana came up with a mood board that was uniquely fresh and exciting. The under-saturated look and cool white balance were the things that I was, literally, shooting for. Most of it was post-production but I am a Photoshop ninja so the challenge was accepted!
And all the hard work paid off. We received a full-page editorial feature in Sophisticated Weddings magazine’s 2019 Volume II!
Huge thanks to all the wonderful event professionals, who contributed their talent and time to create and capture the magic!

Tatiana Valerie and the entire Artvesta Studio team.
Stacey and Brian first met as neighbors, living in the same building for five years before ever speaking. She – yes, Stacey – is actually who made the first move, leaving her phone number on Brian’s car. Just like a modern-day princess in our book taking things into her own hands.
Thank goodness that when it came time to celebrate her birthday, their first official celebration together, Brian did so in grand form. Down on one knee with poetic prose, champagne and the ring she said yes to. On her big day, Stacey turned to Pink Ivy Beauty for her flawless hair and Bridal Gal for her picture-perfect face. She found her gown at Rana Bridal in Englewood Cliffs, NJ.
Initially she was looking for a completely different style, but once one it was not what she wanted. Two more attempts, and then Stacey and her mother found the ONE. The perfect look for a castle wedding for a stunning Morilee princess bride.
Brian’s favorite memory was the first look at his bride and seeing how everything came together in the reception space before the guests entered. For Stacey, it was walking down the aisle and seeing her family and friends smiling faces and knowing that she was walking towards her future husband.

I don’t even know where to begin in expressing my extreme gratitude for Tatiana and her team. Absolutely incredible experience. Tatiana was wonderful from beginning to end, she was not only sweet, friendly and a beautiful person, she was also the picture of professionalism. The entire time I was in great hands and I didn’t doubt it for one second. When I received the photos and footage of my wedding, my heart stood still. She captured so many endearing moments that I will forever hold dear. Delivering over 1500+ photos, each one a work of art. I am blown away by her! I recommend her without hesitation, in fact, it would be a mistake choosing anyone else! Tatiana and her team are absolutely AMAZING! 100%

It is my personal belief that a great photographer should possess two qualities: artistic vision and an approachable personality. Tatiana of Artvesta Studio is a master in the art of capturing moments, but what really stands her apart from the rest is the way she makes her subjects feel about themselves. Tatiana has a way of bringing out the best in everyone, putting even the least ‘photogenic’ individuals at ease, and making them feel their most beautiful. A kind soul with an artistic eye and a romantic heart, Tatiana has a keen ability to capture the beauty in every person, in every space. Her down-to-earth approach shows in her photographs, which frankly speak for themselves. Having worked with Tatiana professionally on editorial shoots and personally for a family session, I can say that having her to capture life’s cherished moments (whatever they may be) is quite a treasure. Whether she’s photographing a wedding day, doing an engagement portrait session, or capturing life’s raw moments, Tatiana’s manner is warm, professional, and communicative, and her photographs are inspired and timeless. You would be hard pressed to find better than Artvesta Studio.

I cannot say enough about Tatiana – she was amazing from the moment I reached out for a quote through Yelp. From offering a personal phone call to discuss the specifics of my idea before finalizing a quote, to arriving earlier than expected and handling minute details of the planning process right up until the moment she began taking pictures. The quality of her pictures is second to none, and we were so happy with everything from that afternoon. She was able to take photos that I’d never have imagined could’ve been captured on this day, and am blown away every time I look at the pictures. High recommend Tatiana and her services.

My wife and I were blown away by Tatiana’s photographs and videos. We flip through our album all the time and people rave about our pictures. Just beautiful! Our wedding venue uses has her pictures all over their instagram page because they are the best. Looking through her pictures brings our wedding back to us every time we look through them.

Tatiana was such an incredible photographer. She made my wedding experience truly special and memorable. She captured the most important moments and was extremely attentive to me throughout the entire day. She was very professional, organized and made sure to capture everything I wanted. Tatiana went above and beyond for my wedding. She even took a special engagement photo shoot for us and those photos turned out to be so gorgeous. Our wedding photos ended up coming out AMAZING and the album is so beautiful. She was so patient and took the time to go over the layouts of each page and work with me to make a special photo album I always imagined. I am so happy to have hired Tatiana for my wedding day! I HIGHLY recommend her!
