Jenn and Martyn’s Urbanite Wedding


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Today’s wedding is one of those betwixt and between celebrations that I have such a soft spot for: not over the top, but not super minimalist either. (Lovely readers, send me more of these weddings!) Jenn and Martyn’s city wedding was shot by the fabulous Kate Headley, and you can see more of it over here.Jenn and Martyns Urbanite Wedding | A Practical WeddingLet me count the ways I love this wedding: They used Falling Slowly as the song in their ceremony, and you know how I love that song.

    ahhh i miss subways. where i’m from, they have old school trams and kids refers to them as ‘ding dings’ because of the sound of their horn. i would so have gotten married on one of those if i could!!

    East Side-
    Had they been subway riders (at least in NYC) you know as well as I do, the couple would have been totally coolly ignored. (except for the occasional hidden grin).

    And that shot would be just as great.
