Jessica and Lior wanted their family to share in their elopement in Cityhall. So the whole troupe met at up at the New York City Hall and supported their vows and intimate ceremony! Afterwards, a few rain drops broke out---but it didn't dampen the mood and aura of the group! We proceeded to Casa Mono (A DELICIOUS Michelin starred restaurant!! @__@) for their reception, full of laughter, endearing speeches-- especially from the man who brought Jess and Lior together-- and amazing FOOD and drinks! It was an awesome experience getting to spend a day with such a sweet group of people! I love photographing these intimate elopements and capturing the moments that will matter for them in the future! I love being able to be their new york city wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite moments from the day:
The day couldn't be any more perfect. It's been such a rainy Summer, and yet Christy and Dan's wedding day was absolutely perfect! I was really excited to be a part of this wedding... I've seen this wedding from the very start; so to see it come into fruition; it was a huge joy for me! Christy had been showing me all her ideas since day 1 and just blowing me away with some of the amazing DIY projects she made. From the hand-made veil that her mother made for her, to every single center piece item, to the wedding favors, the programs- just about everything at this wedding was meticulously created. The venue was also gorgeous, with high ceilings that flooded the room with natural light. Paired with the simple and elegant center pieces, it was beautiful. Christy also got Dan a surprise Groom's Cake as well!! The cake was decorated with the Yankees logos and bordered by the New York City skyline- which meant a lot to Dan (who is a die-hard yankee fan). We started the day in Brooklyn, then they had their ceremony and reception at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and it was beautiful! It’s so great to find these hidden gems when you’re having a New York City Wedding! Everything was so sweet, and the wedding was a lot of fun!!!! It was really great being able to see so many old faces and celebrate.
