Jessie & Craig in New York, NY

The moment Jessie French (29 and a production manager for MTV) and Craig Spain (39 and director of content production for MTV) set foot in The New York Public Library, their jaws dropped. Their love for the iconic library inspired their bookish, cosmopolitan day. Drawing on their venue and literary classics like the The Thin Man—a prohibition-era detective novel set in New York City—Jessie and Craig crafted a timeless, city-chic affair full of dramatic lighting, meaningful details and real-life librarians.
