Inside Rocky Barnes and Matthew Cooper’s New Jersey wedding
Two custom Atelier Pronovias dresses, an outdoor ceremony with a floral-lined aisle, a gospel choir, golf cart drives to the reception, and a ballroom dinner – fashion influencer Rocky Barnes’ wedding to Matthew Cooper was a spectacular affair.
Held at the Knickerbocker Country Club in Tenafly, New Jersey – a place regularly visited by the Cooper family while Matt was growing up – 170 guests looked on as the two wed under a tree flourished with blooms and pampas grass. The flower arrangements had a bohemian vibe and were arranged by Of The Flowers.
The couple read out vows they’d written themselves as a gospel choir provided the music. While Ashley Port from BK Events helped Rocky and Matt plan the details of the wedding, the couple were very much hands-on with all the planning.
For the nuptials, Rocky wore a custom-embroidered v-neck tulle gown, a tulle veil, and a train of georgette and silk organza all designed by Atelier Pronovias. Matt wore Franc Milton while LoveShackFancy made custom gowns for both the bridesmaids and flower girls.
Following the “I dos”, guests jumped into golf carts to make their way to the country club’s terrace – where canapes and cocktails were served. Afterwards, everyone headed into the ballroom for dinner. For the reception, Rocky changed into her second dress by Pronovias – this one a long-sleeved mini dress with embroidered tulle and feathers.
To conclude the festivities, an after-party was held at the Boom Boom Room in New York City.
