The Foundry Wedding - NYC Wedding Photography - Craig Paulson Studio

Sara and Mitch tied the knot with a beautiful wedding this summer at The Foundry and we had a lovely time shooting this joyful and elegant wedding in Long Island City.

A wedding full of classic New York skylines, urban aesthetics, and dancing into the night…what more could one want? Tara Angelopoulos from Dream Makers did a fantastic job planning this event incorporating great traditions such as lighting a handmade unity candle and various dances performed by the bride, groom, and loving families. The bouquets and flowers created by the talented group at Bride and Blossom added the final touch. 

The bride prepared for her big day at the Ravel Hotel and blew their guests away with a dress by BLHDN while the groom wore a handsome suit designed by Kenneth Cole. After the couple spent some time getting ready, they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, took some stunning portraits and headed back to The Foundry where they exchanged vows and enjoyed the rest of their magical evening. Such a wonderful event that was a pleasure to be a part of!

As the bride and groom both got ready surrounded by their friends and family, Hedgerow & Co. made sure the venue is beautifully decorated with their gorgeous floral arrangements. Christiana wore a truly classy gown made by the one and only Pronovias. No wonder she took Joshua`s breath away walking down the aisle.

The guests and the bridal party was in awe as they witnessed the bride & groom tie the knot.

After the ceremony it was time to celebrate with a reception dinner catered by Blue Hill at Stone Barns and entertainment by Hank Lane Music. What a perfect way to dance into the night!

New York Wedding Photographer - Kate & Sean`s dreamy wedding at Natirar

Kate and Sean made it official this April with a marvelous Spring wedding. We had an amazing time shooting for this lovely couple in New Jersey.

The beautiful bride and handsome groom started their day by getting ready at Natirar with the help of their wonderful friends and family. Kate slipped on her gorgeous dress by Theia; and the talented makeup artist and hair stylist Amy Baskin helped make her look like a super model. While the bride put on the finishing touches, the stylish groom and his friends played an exciting game of pool, getting ready to meet his beautiful bride for the first look.

After seeing each other for the first time, we took the couple on a stroll around the venue and took pictures with the lush scenery. After a chilly but fun portrait session, the groom watched his beautiful wife-to-be walk down the aisle with her father. After the ceremony the newly married couple took breathtaking sunset pictures.

Afterwards the crowd headed inside to get the party started. Everyone was dancing and having a blast with the help of the Dj Mathew Friedman who ensured an amazing time. The terrific team of Natirar not only made sure everything ran smoothly but also provided delicious treats for the bride & groom and their loved ones. The stunning design came beautifully together with the hard work and talent of Jardiniere Flowers.

It was an honor capturing those very special moments for our gorgeous couple. Congratulations, Kate and Sean!

NYC Wedding Photographer - Courtney & Shaun`s Winter Wedding at the iconic Loeb Central Park Boathouse

It was a wonderful day for everyone who congratulated Courtney & Shaun’s wedding at the famous Loeb Central Park Boathouse. While the bride got ready at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel, the groom got dressed at the New York Marriott East Side, both surrounded by their family and friends. After prepping, they saw each other for the first time in the hotel lobby as it was romantically raining outside. Shaun was blown away by seeing his gorgeous bride in her one of a kind Vera Wang gown. After, the couple loved having their wedding photos taken at iconic New York City spots.

Courtney & Shaun enjoyed themselves with umbrellas hand in hand and the rain made the night even more special and romantic. With lots of beautiful flower decor provided by Lenox Hill Florist, tons of dancing, toasts and delicious food, it was a memorable day for the couple and everyone invited. It was a pleasure capturing this special day together with Keith Brady Media and Laura with Laura Remmert Events, who made this day even more perfect.

NYC Wedding Photography - Marin & Jeev`s Indian-Jewish fusion wedding in NYC

Let's count the things we love about this Indian - Jewish wedding. The brides absolutely exquisite outfits, the fact that Marin & Jeev celebrated both an Indian and Jewish ceremony at one day, and of course the backdrop of stunning New York City. But even beyond all that, we loved the play of colors in this wedding- from the red and gold with a splash of rose and ivory. Not to mention the many traditions especially the colorful mehndi and the fun Baraat Celebration. Check out the details below!

Marin & Jeev started off their wedding celebration with the Sangeet & Mehndi at Studio 450 with the perfect view overlooking the city. With the amazing talent and hard work of planner & florist, Marie Danielle Vil-Young with A Votre Service Events, the weekend celebration could not begin any better. The ladies enjoyed Henna provided by Brooklyn Henna Company while Benares Caterers passed their delicious hors d`oeuvre. DJ Suhel and the Dhol Players made sure the Sangeet was a one of a kind evening. Our team could not wait to capture the next day!

Ready and excited for the big day, the bride got ready with Hair Stylist Cassie Harwood-Jacquet at the Kimpton Eventi Hotel while the groom got his turban tied at the Conrad. After some finishing touches and final accessories, Marin got escorted by a very elegant Rolls Royce to the days location, the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. In the meanwhile, Jeev got celebrated during the Baraat at Pier Sixty sitting on top of a stunning white horse provided by Equishare Baraat horses. Abigail Kirsch Caterers set up breakfast and the Langar while Dj Suhel and the Dhol player got ready for the day. After the Baraat and breakfast, the guests removed their shoes and covered their heads to enter the "temple", beautifully decorated by Jeannie Forunato with Atlas Florists.

After a quick portrait session, the newlyweds headed to the Kimpton Eventi Hotel so Marin could change into her second, stunning gown of the day. This truly special dress took Jeev`s breath at their "first look". It was a pleasure taking the bride & groom for a quick tour through the city, making stops at Tribeca, the Flatiron district and the magical Grand Central Terminal before heading to Pier Sixty for their Jewish Ceremony. After saying their "I Do`s" the couple was welcomed as the new Mr. & Mrs. and danced through the night together with the team of Starlight Orchestras
