Nobody wants rain, much less rain with 40+ mph winds on their wedding day.
Instead of April showers, Alison and Stephen got hurricane-like conditions the day they got married. But you know what? It didn’t matter. When you’re looking your best, high on love, and about to spend the night partying with all of your favorite people, there’s not too much that can shake you.
(That, and riding through the storm in the Coolest Ride Ever – an old checker cab used in movies like ‘When Harry Met Sally’ – which I have to say was one of the coolest things I’ve done in awhile!)
I had the most amazing time hanging out with Marta and Andrew the day they made things official and became husband and wife. I witnessed (yes, I got to be their witness!) their marriage at the City Clerk’s office in Manhattan, and then we spent the afternoon wandering around lower Manhattan taking pictures.
So. Much. Fun!
I’ll be posting the full set of photos sometime next month, but it’d be cruel to leave you hanging so here are just a few for now :)
Alison and Stephen got married in hurricane-like conditions this weekend, but even the weather couldn’t dampen their spirits. Of course, it may have helped that they got to stay dry in a vintage cab while traveling between venues ;)
Full post coming soonish!
Two weeks ago, I photographed the Wedding Crashers after party at The Green Building. Some of Brooklyn’s best wedding vendors gathered to show off their goods to brides- and grooms-to-be. There was seriously way too much talent in one room, but I’ll attempt to sum it up with a few shots below:
Some of the vendors from the event:
Fashion show by Gabriella New York Bridal Salon
Desserts by Beeâ€™s Knees Baking Company
DJ by Generations Events
Choreography by Orange Grove Dance
Flowers by Poppies & Posies
So, I had a pretty special Valentine’s Day this year.
No, no – no red roses, chocolates or fancy dinner to speak of (and if you know me, you know that’s SO not my style anyway!). Instead, I got to photograph the beautiful wedding of Samantha and Brett. But this was no run-of-the-mill V-Day wedding. These guys won a contest held by The Knot and got to be one of 14 lucky couples to get married inside the Empire State Building! Literally no one else outside of this contest can say they were wed here, that’s how special it is. And to add to the special-ness, they were able to tie the knot just before Brett was deployed to Afghanistan.
Samantha and Brett said “I Do” on the 61st floor of the Empire State Building, then afterwards went up to the observation deck with their invited guests to take photos and answer some interview questions for the media. One thing that goes along with winning such a cool contest is the paparazzi-like buzz around it, so there was an incredible number of media folk present at the wedding, not to mention most NYC radio stations were talking about the contest all morning.
After leaving the ESB, we spent some time in Grand Central Terminal taking pictures. I love that they chose a location with so much meaning to them (and to me, as well). The very last photo in this set is my absolute favorite – in front of the beautiful station backdrop, they’re looking at each other with that *OMGwejustgotmarriedandiloveyousomuch!* look on their faces. So beautiful!
