Erin & Alex :: A Wedding at The Rookery

A wedding at The Rookery is in itself quite the treat. You see, it’s not like you can just pop in anytime you wish and take pictures of that gorgeous spiral staircase to your heart’s desire. Plus, if you can add a beautiful bride and groom and jaw dropping decor to the mix, you are sure to need to be reminded by security that time’s up and the wedding is over. You will not be able to stop taking pictures of it all! Erin & Alex’s wedding was creative genius. And it was all Erin’s vision! Down to the stunning invitations she created herself! As the Creative Director for Modern Luxury Brides magazine, Erin gets to see the most beautiful weddings in the city, so it is no surprise that her own wedding is a trend setter and a timeless classic at the same time. Unlike any other you’ve seen before!
