Each week we take a deeper look at one of our favorite new love stories, and today's inspiration comes courtesy of Chris and Katherine's glamorous New York city I do's.
Paperweight Films joined this twosome at Cipriani for one seriously elegant celebration, capturing every stylish detail of their day. That all started with—you guessed it!—the bride's gorgeous wedding dress. With such a glamorous backdrop for their wedding, it was only fitting that Katherine went all out for her wedding day attire, and she stole the show in her intricately embroidered gown. The sheer detailing on the bodice and back made for a spectacular look from all angles. Paired with a neat chignon and flowing veil, Katherine was a picture-perfect bride.
But style didn't start and end with the bride. Her groom nailed the tailored tux look, and both the bridesmaids and groomsmen showed up in their formal best. Plus, the couple's guests showed up in their wedding day attire—did you catch the mother of the bride in her black lace gown? It's clear where this bride gets her great fashion sense from.

As for the wedding itself, the bride and groom traded vows in a traditional Greek ceremony, complete with a "crowning" ritual. After, the newlyweds exited the ornate church and were met with applause from their happy guests (and a few well-wishers passing by). Like any good New Yorkers, Katherine and Chris took the opportunity to hit the streets and some of the city's best landmarks for photos, including Grand Central Station.
By the time everyone finally arrived at Cipriani for the lavish reception, guests were ready to party. And party they did. From the moment Katherine and Chris entered their candlelit reception, friends and family remained on their feet, dancing and celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs. The only break from the revelry came when the bride and groom cut into their all-white wedding cake!
