70’s Inspired Wedding With A City Hall Ceremony and Motown Dance Party

Roxanne and Cameron’s 70’s inspired wedding with an intimate ceremony at City Hall in NYC that culminated in an oh-so-chic motown dance party the following day. We love the way this couple embraced a two part celebration that allowed them to have an intimate *official* ceremony but still celebrate with all their pals later on.… 70’s Inspired Wedding With A City Hall Ceremony and Motown Dance Party - Ruffled

How Martin Luther King Jr. and Motown Saved the Sound of the Civil Rights Movement

Even if you wanted to, despite its renown, it’s surprisingly hard to find...
