Katie and Paul’s Wedding at Ram’s Head Inn

We couldn’t have been more excited for this wedding back in June. With such a great team of vendors behind Katie & Paul the whole day went swimmingly! This was largely due to Leslie Price of In Any Event who kept everything in line and running smooth. Not to mention her decor was incredibly beautiful! Both Katie and Paul chose to get ready at their home just down the street from The Rams Head Inn on Shelter Island with their family and bridal party all gathered for hair, makeup and photos! Katie’s stunning dress made by Jenny Packham hung in the window, ready for her to put on. We went around to the back garden for the first look with some portraits right after. The bridal party and family joined us soon after for more pictures before hopping on a school bus headed to the inn! Guests were greeted with champagne and umbrellas as they walked down the hill to the waterfront for the gorgeous sun filled ceremony. Cocktail hour followed, with dinner, toasts and dancing that carried on through the night! At the end of the evening, a traveling pizza oven food truck parked out front and served everyone custom made, wood fired pizzas that were quite delicious, especially when topped with Katie’s homemade and bottled hot sauce! The night ended with lots of dancing and sparklers as they celebrated Katie & Paul.

Amanda and Richard’s Wedding at Doubles

Amanda and Richard’s wedding was so unique and exciting to shoot! The ceremony was held on the rooftop of Amanda and Richard’s  apartment in Greenwich Village. Amanda left her guests speechless in her jaw dropping hot pink wedding dress. Following the ceremony, Amanda and her friends headed downstairs to touch up their hair and makeup before rejoining their guests. Once everyone was ready, all of the guests boarded a double decker sight seeing tour bus and drove around the city before arriving at Doubles Club. The 1920s swing band that was there gave the party a great energy and got everyone dancing. A member of the band even broke out his tap shoes and gave all the guests a great show. Towards the end of the night an Elvis impersonator made an appearance and everyone danced the night away. Such a unique and fun filled night to celebrate a marriage!

Chess & Peter’s Wedding at the Foundry

We are in love with Chess & Peter’s wedding day. We were so pumped to be working with them, their energy levels and cuteness were off the charts! The entire day was just about their relationship and being surrounded by all their favorite people. You can’t help but to smile right alongside them! Chess & Peter chose the Ravel Hotel right next door as the spot to prep for their big day. Chessia chose very springy flowers and  succulents from xylem + Phloem to match her pale pinks and greens theme. She put on her gown with help from her mom and bridesmaids, all wearing dresses of their choice. Even the giggling flower girls helped too, in their ballerina attire. Peter got ready in the room right above with his men, toasting and having a good time. Once they were both ready, we took Peter up to the rooftop terrace for the first look. They had a sweet moment together and practiced their first dance before heading downstairs to gather everyone. We hopped over to The Foundry greenhouse for family formals, bridal party and then onto the Gantry Plaza Park for some pretty epic couple portraits. All of the guests had arrived back at the Foundry so we ushered Chessia up to the mezzanine level to wait with her dad before walking down the aisle for a very touching ceremony, some wiping their eyes. After that it was a fun party lasting well into the night including lots of dancing, toasts, really delicious food served by Real Food Catering and amazing tunes by the Les Loups DJ who kept everyone on the dance floor until the very end of the night! Once they walked through their sparkler exit, Chess & Peter led their party back to the Ravel Hotel rooftop for an after party to cap their day. Everything would not have been possible without the planning expertise of Jose Rolon events and day of coordination from Viva Max events!

Debbie and Marty’s Wedding at The Loeb Central Park Boathouse

Debbie and Marty’s wedding was a spectacular one and it would not have been possible without the amazing skills of Danielle Bobish of Curtain Up Events. Debbie and her bridal party got ready at New York Marriott East Side while Marty and his groomsmen put their suits on at home. After hair and makeup was done, the girls helped Debbie into her the beautiful dress by Rivini, which looked stunning on the glowing bride. The two saw each other for the first time at the ceremony, which took place at Marble Collegiate Church. Once the couple said their “I Do’s”, they walked happily down the aisle with a personalized carpet under their feet – a unique touch. We shot some quick wedding party photos, and then whisked the newlyweds off to Grand Central and the surrounding areas for a fun photo shoot. Debbie and Marty then made their way to The Loeb Central Park Boathouse to meet their guests for food, music and dancing. The elegant flower arrangements were by Lenox Hill Florist and the guests enjoyed music by DJ Gatsby.
