Risa and Michael held their wedding at the palatial Guastavino’s, which sits right under the 59th Street Bridge. The New York City Landmark is home to some absolutely gorgeous architecture, and we couldn’t wait to use it as a backdrop to our couple’s photos. Before heading there, however, we caught up with the couple at the 49th Street Marriot, where Risa was preparing to step into a stunning Romona Keveza gown. Stepping out onto the balcony to take in the view, Risa prepared for her first look at Michael.
We followed the couple as they explored the sights of midtown, stopping for portraits along the route to Guastavino’s. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a dazzling floral display accented by elegant uplighting courtesy of the talented MC Nino Designs. Their guests were seated, and the time finally came for the big moment. Risa and Michael joined each other under their chuppah and tied the knot as their loved ones applauded. From there, we followed the newlyweds into their reception under the venue’s gorgeous vaulted ceiling. The newlyweds and their guests celebrated late into the evening as Sound Image from Faze4 took center stage for an incredible set. We truly had an amazing time with Risa and Michael. We’re so happy to be sharing some of their special day.

Heather and Giuseppe were greeted with a beautiful sunny morning at Oheka Castle on the day of their wedding. We arrived in time to catch Heather stepping into her stunning gown, and were astonished when she told us it was hand made by her mother! She finished off her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and was ready for her first look. Meanwhile, Giuseppe, clad in a sharp Brooks Brothers suit, waited patiently at the foot of the grand staircase. Finally, it was time for the big reveal, and after the couple got their first looks at each other, they headed outside to explore the castle grounds. Time flew by as we followed the couple, stopping for photos around the property, and soon enough it was time for the ceremony to begin. The couple exchanged vows as their guests looked on happily. With the ceremony behind them, the newlyweds were ready to celebrate! We headed inside to a beautiful ballroom decorated by Pedestals Floral Decorators. After an amazing dinner and some unforgettable speaches, Heather and Giuseppe’s guests joined them on the dance floor as Genesis Events kicked up the tempo and kept everyone on their feet! A heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds, we’re so excited to be sharing some photos of their incredible day!

We began our day with Elizabeth and Tim at the Conrad Hotel, where they were both preparing eagerly for their first look. After donning her gorgeous Manuel Mota gown, Elizabeth headed down to the lobby to meet Tim. The hotel was the perfect location for the couple, where we were able to hit the streets of the West Village with them for some romantic portraits before their ceremony began. With their bridal party in tow, the couple explored the streets and alleys on their way to The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. When we finally arrived, we were greeted with a beautiful display of hanging lights and flowers. With their guests looking on, the couple stood hand in hand and exchanged vows, silhouetted by a breathtaking sunset. After dinner, the newlyweds hit the dance floor with their guests to sing and dance to the sounds of New York Edge, who had a perfect energy to keep the party going strong late into the evening. We are so happy for this amazing couple, congratulations Elizabeth and Tim!
