Real Weddings: Meet Clare

When it comes to grit and urban character, New York and it's five boroughs, can't be beat. Clare and Harry took advantage of everything the city they love has to offer on their wedding day. They hit the streets, with Bonnie Jenkins, and captured some killer shots featuring Brooklyn. Word around town has it that these two really know how to put on a party. Their venue, the Wythe Hotel, is a meticulously renovated, 116 year old, factory building that sits on the Williamsburg waterfront. The perfect setting for a night of big city magic. Just check out those King Kong skyline views. Clare chose a custom gown that was SO right for her easy breezy Brooklyn bride vibe.

Inspiration: Iolite by Lucy Cuneo

Southern charm and European details abound at River Oaks in Charleston, SC. Stucco facades and stone water features provide rustic charm in this sophisticated shoot from Lucy Cuneo and Mallory Joyce. The bride's loose locks and that rich and wild bouquet fit the intimate vibe of this ceremony. We love the way our Iolite glitters in the candlelight.
