Diana and Ilan’s Wedding at Temple Israel of Lawrence

We are so excited to post this wedding, Diana and Ilan are completely thrilled with their slideshow! Not to mention, they had a powerhouse team of Craig and Courtney covering their big day!

The couple chose the beautiful Temple Israel of Lawrence as the backdrop for their wedding, which offers amazing stained glass windows and ornate details everywhere. Diana got ready with her mom and grandmother in the bridal suite, putting on her dreamy gown from Reem Acra and her sparkling jewelry. Ilan got ready with his brother and headed out to see Diana for the first time. They enjoyed their first look in front of the temple before signing their ketubah and marriage license. Surrounded by family and friends, Diana walked down the aisle to her happy husband to be, said their vows and returned a married couple!  Tons of dancing and eating went on through the night thanks to music by Ebe Events. Temple Israel of Lawrence provided the great food and drinks, and the couple loved their amazing cake.

Is it too good to be true?

We recently read a GREAT article on the fantastic blog Knotsvilla all about hiring vendors and what to keep in mind. Knowing that wedding planning can be daunting, we always suggest to go with your gut. Sometimes your budget doesn’t allow that and it’s tempting to go with a vendor offering the world for a penny. You should walk away from your wedding completely satisfied (and with a spouse!) with great photos and albums to remember it by. If you are still shopping for vendors of any kind, check out the article in the link below, it’s a great read!

Merrie and Andrew’s Wedding at University Club

A few months ago we shot an awesome, snowy engagement shoot with Merrie and Andrew, and now we are excited to show off their awesome wedding shots at the University Club! Both the bride and groom spent getting ready at the venue, and started things off with an elegant first look. Just before the ceremony, we took the outside for a couple of portraits in Central Park and 5th Ave and had some fun riding the city bus together. Once we arrived back at the venue, the space was ready to go and had beautiful floral decorations set up by to Belle Fleur. After saying “I do”, the couple was ready to move on to the dance floor! Guests enjoyed music by Marianne Bennet from Element Music and catering by the University Club. The room was filled with dancing and laughter while the couple celebrated their marriage!
