This NYC Bride Goes Femme-Noir (& We're Obsessed)

For her wedding at Long Island City's The Foundry (site of Jessa and Thomas-John's  spontaneous nuptials), this New York bride took an unconventional route, rocking black-on-black like a besotted Grace Coddington

Rather than the typical white gown, Amalia opted for a custom SYNderela jumpsuit (with a removable organza skirt) that gives us the film-noir warm fuzzies. And, as Amalia said "I do" to her now-hubbie, Jasper, photographer Amber Gress captured the bold, red reception: everything from the flowers to a plush couch to the groom's velvet jacket was crimson. The result? The very sweetest midwinter night's dream.

We love a man who can rock Kit Harrington hair, a Suitable velvet suit jacket, and a bouquet.
