A graphic artist and fashion designer create a warm, spirited celebration at Long Island City's Metropolitan Building, with vintage-inspired décor and heart-warming personal touches—like a guitar-playing groomsman.

When Will, a graphic artist with a penchant for photography, proposed to Rachel, he didn't just ask that all-important question—he spelled it out in images he captured of billboards and signs from the couple's travels. "He created a book," Rachel explains, "each page spelling out, 'Will you marry me, Rachel?'"

The couple planned their April wedding with the same creative zest, dividing wedding planning duties to design a fete at the Metropolitan Building that appears both effortless and organic.
