Jill and Ed originally planned to hold their wedding at Angel Orensanz, but a last minute structural problem forced the venue to close abruptly, and left the couple with mere days to find a new venue. They quickly settled on The High Line Hotel, a gorgeous boutique in the heart of Chelsea. We took a trip over before the wedding to get the lay of the land, and were immediately impressed by the gothic revival architecture. By the end of the visit, we couldn’t wait to come back to photograph Jill and Ed’s event. Fortunately, we didn’t have to wait long before the day came. When we arrived, the couple were busy getting dressed and ready for their first look. As we explored the endless cooridors and stairwells, we stopped to grab photos of the couple along with their bridal party.
Finally, it was time for the ceremony, and we headed into the refectory, where the couple exchanged vows under a gorgeous vaulted ceiling. Walking back down the aisle hand in hand, the newlyweds were followed by their guests into an incredible reception space. NYC event planners Creative Edge did a great job creating a warm and inviting atmosphere which completely suited Jill and Ed’s style. The rest of the night was a blur of dinner, drinks and dancing as everyone celebrated Jill and Ed’s accomplishment. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

If you follow our blog regularly, you may recognize Maria and Dan from our previous post of their incredible engagement shoot. We were more than ready for their wedding day at Oheka Castle, and it’s safe to say they were too! We arrived at the bridal suite, where a gorgeous Lazaro gown was hanging up, and Maria was getting the finishing touches on her hair and makeup. After slipping into her gown, we followed her downstairs for her first look with Dan, who was dressed sharply in a dapper Ferragamo tuxedo. The weather was absolutely perfect for outdoor portraits by the castle’s reflecting pool. While we were outside, there was a small army at work preparing the couple’s ceremony, and as guests began arriving, the couple headed back in to prepare for the big moment. Surrounded by their loved ones, Maria and Dan exchanged vows. Walking back down the aisle hand in hand, the newlyweds were ready to celebrate! Entering the ballroom, we were greeted with an extravagant display crafted by Pedestals Floral Decorators. After a host of speeches and a fabulous dinner, Maria, Dan and their guests filled the dance floor to get down to the sounds of New York Orchestras, who kept the crowd dancing late into the evening. We’re so excited to share some images from this unforgettable event. Congratulations Maria and Dan!

We were so excited when we met Vanessa and Bobby in our studio and heard all about their incredible wedding plans. Then we found out about her amazing interior design company Vanessa Deleon Associates, and knew we were in for a truly special event. When the day finally arrived, we met Vanessa at the Grand Hyatt, where there was a flurry of activity as everyone prepared for the day. After Claire from Salon Glam finished her hair, she stepped into an absolutely breathtaking Inbal Dror gown and a pair of stunning Christian Louboutins. Soon enough, the time came and we followed Vanessa to Ascension Greek Orthodox, where Bobby was waiting. The couple met at the altar, and in the presence of their loved ones, exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony.
We could feel the anticipation for the newlyweds and their guests as we traveled to Cipriani 42nd Street for their reception. We surely weren’t dissappointed when we arrived to an extravagant display courtesy of Visions Decor. The DJ had the dance floor packed as Vanessa and Bobby took center stage for their first dance. After dinner, the dance floor was filled yet again for an unforgettable night of Greek dancing that gave way to an all-out dance party as the DJ played all Vaness and Bobby’s favorite songs. After dessert, guests were treated to hand rolled cigars to celebrate the newlyweds. A big thanks to Bianca B, who took care of all the details and made sure the entire day went off without a hitch. We are ecstatic to share some pictures from their truly unorgettable event. Congratulations Vanessa and Bobby!

We recently made the short trip to Closter, New Jersey, where Dana and Adam were celebrating their wedding at Temple Emanu-El. Dana took some time off from crafting delicious macarons for her company Dana’s Bakery to be pampered with her bridesmaids by Warren Tricomi Salon in preparation for her big day. After stepping into a breathtaking Ulla-Maija Couture gown and Manolo Blahnik stilettos, she was ready to give Adam his first look. The couple posed for portraits on the Temple’s beautiful property as their bridal party looked on. After more portraits of Dana, Adam and their bridal party, their guests had been seated and were ready for the ceremony to begin! Dana and Adam exchanged vows under a beautiful chuppah from our friends over at Spitz and Peck, and the Temple echoed with applause and cheers as they walked down the aisle hand in hand. There was an incredible energy in the air as the newlyweds made their grand entrance into their reception with the help of True Blue from Faze 4. We celebrated into the night with the couple and their guests, and caught every minute of their party, including when Dana grabbed the mic to serenade Adam and their guests! It was an amazingly fun-filled night that surely nobody will forget, and we’re so happy to have captured it for them. Congratulations Dana & Adam!

We had an incredible time with Lauren and Jerry on their big day. After a beautiful ceremony at St. Catherine in Astoria, we followed the newlyweds to The North Ritz Club, where a lavish reception awaited them. Our friends over at Pedestals Floral Decorators put together spectacular decor with stunning arrangements bursting from every table. Lauren was stunning in her Demetrios gown as she walked the grounds with Jerry. We were close behind, capturing the romantic moments between the newlyweds as their guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The unforgettable night was made complete with an energetic performance by legendary greek band Power Station Entertainment, who kept the dance floor packed late into the evening. Congratulations Lauren & Jerry!
