new york wedding photographers at the museum of natural history

kate and michael are NEW YORKERS.  they have cool jobs at fun, young companies and they can tell you, off the tops of their heads, exactly where to find the best fancy drinks at a secret downtown speakeasy, the best pho, the best NY slice and obviously the four best coffees on the entire island.  they got engaged on a street corner in their neighborhood– need we say more?  come on, thats so New York.  effortlessly magical.  when we heard this, we loved them already.  when they initially reached out to us, kate and i realized that all four of us were going to be in LA at the same time, so we met for drinks at The Hollywood Roosevelt.  while sipping IPAs and sauvignon blanc by the pool in total LA style, these smart, funny new yorkers told us about their wedding plans, which were going to take place at the classically fabulous NYC museum of natural history in the powerhouse loft.  between the prehistoric bones, the planetarium and the general new yorky-ness of this venue, we were all in with these two and their plans.

on wedding day, kate and her bridesmaids got ready at the empire hotel on the upper west side before heading over the St. James Cathedral for their nuptials.  their guests enjoyed cocktails outside before moving indoors for dinner and dancing in the powerhouse loft.  the gorgeous bouquets and reception florals were created by Meredith of Belle Fleur.  kate + michael’s wedding celebration plans rolled out smoothly and without a hitch, thanks to the beautiful and talented, Rebecca Shenkman, owner and coordinator extraordinaire, of Pink Bowtie Events.

how sweet are these two?  they are the perfect mesh of endearingly sarcastic humor, truly kind and generous hearts and of course, GREAT taste.  so much love to the new mr. and mrs. harper.  xo

new york wedding photographers at sleepy hollow country club

brooke and brian’s wedding day took place at The Sleepy Hollow Country Club, nestled in Pocantico Hills near the Hudson River.  its a special venue with views of the golf course and the town of briarcliff manor.  the ornate interior with gold details and antique, paneled walls was not only impressive but the perfect backdrop for this brooke and brian’s wedding vision– a formal black tie party with exquisite details that felt elegant and unique.  oh, and did we mention brooke’s incredible floral-printed bridal gown?  definitely one of my favorite parts of the day.

although a few rain clouds passed through on the morning of their wedding day, all cleared up by the time their guests were arriving for their outdoor ceremony, overlooking the course.  their heartfelt ceremony commenced as the sun set behind them.  after cocktails, their guests moved into the tent for dinner + dancing.  most seats were empty throughout the entire party– the bride herself has a background in dance and apparently her talent + enthusiasm rubbed off on the crowd. their choreographed first dance ended with a lift and a dip–need we say more?   also completely obsessed with the incredible Dane Wright Band who left everything they had on the dance floor–literally.  toward the end of the night, we remember seeing the lead singer on his back, along with the groom and father of the bride, during an energetic version of shout.  cutest detail ever?  a popsicle cart outside the tent for guests as they left on this hot summer evening.  we LOVE brooke and brian and their amazing wedding celebration.  so grateful to have been a part of it!

New York Wedding Photographers at Blue Hill Stone Barns

jessica and matt were married at one of the most beautiful settings in New York, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. its everything a smart New Yorker with great taste could want. The rustic angle is your first impression since Stone Barns is a working farm, complete with animals in the Hills of Northern Westchester. the huge stone silos are Impressive inside and out. Dan Barber is the chef at Blue Hill and hence, also caters the weddings that take place at Stone Barns.

Its impossible not to fall in love with every aspect of this wedding location.   This foodie experience and artful presentation is enough to impress even the most seasoned Manhattan foodie.  And it was the perfect place for Jess and Matt to tie the knot.  They are smart and fun and interesting– a couple who really bond over their love of new, exciting experiences.  For example, they planned an african safari for their honeymoon and came back with photos of some incredible animals that they were kind enough to share with us.

though it was a bit rainy on their wedding day, the weather could not stop the love and happiness radiating from jess and matt.  their ceremony was held in the hay loft.  cocktail hour took place downstairs in the hay barn where the blue hill staff treated jess and matt’s guests to some of the most exquisite culinary presentations we’ve ever seen.  then the whole party moved back upstairs to continue the experience.  jess and matt made their entrance with an impromptu dance while the blue vipers of brooklyn played authentic swing tunes.  the colorful florals by Denise Fasanello warmed up the rustic stone walls of the hay loft.  eventually, everyone moved back downstairs for dessert and dancing.  this wedding was EVERYTHING.  loved being a part of this stylish couples special day.

New York Wedding Photographers at the Surf Lodge Montauk

sarah and britton got hitched at the fabulous hamptons hot-spot, The Surf Lodge.  its basically a dream come true for the trés-chic-surf-rat crowd (the new age of hamptons-weekenders from NYC who can surf).  we’re completely obsessed with the psychadelic, trippy, drippy paint detail on hotel’s lobby and event space building.  these adorable blond floridians’ nuptials took place under a green garland arch on the sand, before all of their family + friends.  after they tied the knot, sarah + britton partied with their guests under a cozy ceiling of woven baskets, while their tables donned centerpieces celebrating their “cotton” theme, in honor of the new mr. + mrs.’s last name.  the amazing bouquets and florals were beautifully constructed by Lindsay Rae Design.   the newly married pair’s first dance was pretty spectacular with some serious Beyonce moments.  they danced and sang through dinner, after which they moved the party over to the Surf Lodge bar, which is practically wallpapered with surf boards.  On our way out, we caught the cottons cozied up beside a bonfire on the sand, which in our opinion, was the perfect last shot of the day.
