“The adventure of our first days together gradually blossomed into something else: a feeling I’d never had, which I can only compare to the sensation of returning home, of joining a balance that needs no adjusting, as if the scales of my life had been waiting for her all along.” —Ian Caldwell
No matter how you choose to celebrate your lifelong dedication to it, your love is enough. The styling and inspiration behind this editorial was based around just that belief— when the deafening noise of the wedding planning process falls away, what is left is the beautiful union of two souls. As much as we may love them for a little while, none of the extravagant details will carry on. Bearing that in mind, the details here are minimalist; drawn from modern urban influences and a classic sense of style. There is something magnetic about the chic simplicity of being wed in a park in the heart of the city.
