Ruth and Blake definitely wanted everyone to have a great time at their wedding. From have the bar serving their signature mixed drink to their personalized cozies, it was clear that a party was in tow. Another great love of theirs is their dogs, which they included into the wedding! I got to meet their little puppies and photograph them as part of their bridal party. The wedding venue was a gorgeous castle out in Philly- very different from my usual New York City Weddings- and about an hour prior to their wedding, it was raining like crazy- however RIGHT when it was time to begin their outdoor ceremony-- the skies cleared and their ceremony was beautiful! It was definitely a miraculous occurrence and a blessing for their beautiful day! Here are some of my favorite shots:
Shana and Brad wanted to photograph inside Grand Central Station in New York City, since it was a location that held a special part of Brad's heart. He would commute through there everyday, but also it was where he proposed to Shana via the Whispering walls. We started their session inside and made our way throughout. Shana even wore the veil that her mother wore at her wedding many years before! It was really beautiful. Afterwards, we walked up Park ave to go towards their apartment in New York City to get on the roof and get some scenic shots of the New York City landscape! It was gorgeous! There was a great view of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building! Gorgeous place to photograph!!! Along with having an amazing time with my clients... we also bumped into Jeremy Lin and he was gracious enough to take a photo with the future married couple! It was awesome! Brad is a Knicks fan... so it worked out perfectly! Again, I love being a New York City Wedding Photographer because of the happenstances like this!!
Finally, a celebrity sighting:
JEREMY LIN !!!!!!!!! AHHHH!!!!
Sherrie & Daniel are two gorgeous people, with even more gorgeous personalities and hearts. They were so thoughtful, sweet, generous and suuuper easy to get along with! I even photographed their engagement session at Columbia University’s Library on the Upper West Side! Throughout the entire day, people were pouring out love and support upon them. We began with getting ready in Queens and then shooting at a nearby park. It was in mid-november... and the foliage was beautiful. It was a bit nippy out- but Sherrie, Dan and the crew were so solid, they fought through and we got some amazing shots because of it! They had their beautiful ceremony at FGNY Church and then had their reception at the Picnic House in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York. The decor and design was gorgeous and really reminded me of a Beauty and the Beast-like feel. There were amazing surprise dance performances and just a lot of laughter and joy throughout the night! So blessed to have gotten to be a part of the day and again so glad to be a new york city wedding photographer and travel all over the city to capture amazing moments!
