With Rebecca Yale Portraits behind the lens of Miriam and Fred’s big day, the ethereal light, dreamy color palette and unique details of this New York City loft wedding simply took my breath away. Isn’t it so pretty?
Gary’s Loft is a wonderful blank canvas that bride and groom were able to personalize into their perfect venue. The ceremony took place on the roof in midtown Manhattan under a lovely chuppa designed by the groom’s father, with help from a bridesmaid who happens to be a textile designer.
The after ceremony rooftop sunset cocktail hour included a signature watermelon drink, (virgin ones were made available for kids), then the guests were invited down to the loft which had been transformed with beautiful white linens and gorgeous blue and purple flowers. In addition, the shelved walls were lined with fun little treasures hand picked by the couple with help from the venue.

To top it all off, as you can see the space features some unique architectural aspects like a fake bathroom with a large white bathtub, which was filled with hundreds of bottles of beer for the guests to enjoy. There is also a fake kitchen, which was used as one of the wonderful buffet stations. And large white couches were put in the corners of the room for people to lounge and relax on when not dancing the night away.
From the bride:
Some girls “just know” when they have found the perfect wedding dress. Fred and I walked into Gary’s Loft in midtown manhattan and we just knew that we had found the perfect place for two crazy native New Yorkers to wed. We wanted good food, our artsy friends, some personal touches (his dad’s artwork, my grandmother’s pearls) and a relaxed atmosphere where no one was stuck behind a table if they didn’t want to be. And it was important to us that we were allowed to be our bespectacled selves the whole time. All with a view of the Empire
