WATCH: Go Inside an Intimate New York City Wedding

Real Weddings

Weddings come in all different forms — some couples choose a traditional bash with 200 guests while others jet off to a far-flung destination with just their closest friends and family in tow. Whether you fall into the first category, the second, or somewhere entirely different, our real wedding video channel has plenty of inspiration for you! Each week we're spotlighting one of our favorite new love story, and this week your big day ideas come courtesy of Alycia and Kevin's intimate New York City wedding at Frankie 457.

With Mint Wedding Cinematography in tow, the couple exchanged vows in an open-air courtyard with just their nearest and dearest on hand to witness their official union. Although they opted to have a relatively small guest list, Alycia and Kevin went big on style. Just look at the bride's dress! She stuns in a draping A-line gown with a plunging v-neckline and embellished belt. Her groom doesn't disappoint, either. Dressed in a sleek suit and striped tie, Kevin is the epitome of a dashing groom.

Despite the upbeat tunes, it's clear just how emotional this couple (and their guests!) are during the ceremony. As the father-of-the-bride preps to give his little girl away, Mint Wedding Cinematography captures the tears welling up in his eyes. Similarly, Kevin can't seem to contain his emotion as Alycia makes her way down the aisle.

If you're planning your own intimate wedding day, keep a watchful eye on this couple's fun-filled reception. Long tables keep everyone feeling connected and low centerpieces of classic white blooms are the perfect contrast to glam gold-and-white runners.
