loft love: a bridal session in queens

From Mandy Forlenza Sticos “The top floor of the new, chic addition to Queens, Boro Hotel, boasts pristine city views and is a perfect backdrop for the light and airy ode to love that the photographer, Maria Doka, and I hoped to create for this bridal inspiration shoot!”

From Mandy Forlenza Sticos – “The dress by Saja Wedding is soft and sweet enough to make any bride twirl with delight.  Topped with a classic birdcage veil and vintage style earrings from Happily Ever Borrowed the bridal look is lovely and complete. Hair + Make up by Bobby and the Bride makes for a glowing bride with soft waves and natural coloring.”

“A touch of pink + deep reds in the bouquet by Petals and Roots accent the invitation suite by Sincerely, Jackie perfectly.  Last but not least, a few Shakespeare quotes by Inks & Nibs in calligraphy and brushstroke add just the right amount of love to this photo shoot.”
