New York City Engagement Photographer
natalie and ravi got married at the eventi hotel in midtown manhattan, one of our favorite hotels with its modern design and artistic details. after their first look on the terrace, we took a few wedding day portraits around town and headed back to the hotel for their ceremony–a sweet candlelight ceremony before their family and friends. they said i do and met their guests on the terrace for cocktails at dusk, while the empire state building became aglow in the blue city sky. the celebration continued in the ballroom with dinner and dancing. such an awesome manhattan wedding day for two homegrown new yorkers.

this is not your average backyard wedding. adrienne’s parents’ home, which has been in her family for generations, is a french country dream, nestled in the woods of cross river, new york. their home was built on rolling hills so a platform had to be built against a hill to host the tent where their reception took place. the home itself is an eclectic french country home, each room being ornate enough to host the fanciest of black-tie cocktail parties and at the same time, cozy enough to curl up on a rainy afternoon with the sunday times. it has all the unique charm you could ever want in an actual visit to the french countryside.
it was a perfect spring morning, weather-wise and other-wise. brett from la maison fete was running the show while Dana Worlock from Hedgerow covered floral design. adrienne and per’s sun-speckled ceremony took place in the orchard, just in front of the sculpture/water feature. after cocktails and lawn games on the patio, guests were invited into the tent for an incredible summer meal by Fancy Girl Catering which included edible florals on nearly every plate. lots of dancing and a few toasts later, the party was in full-effect. toward the end of the night, we followed the bride and groom out front where they released glowing wish lanterns into the dark blue summer night sky. this was one celebration we wont soon forget. cheers to this unique couple’s nuptials. so grateful to have been a part of it!
nicole and erik’s wedding day took place at Ashokan Dreams, nestled in the Catskills overlooking the Ashokan Reservoir. Ashokan Dreams is also the groom’s childhood home. the eclectic rustic interior is a mix of americana and mountain coziness we loved the taxidermy and the cabin vibe– both complimented the stunning mountain views. those views became the backdrop for their personalized, emotional ceremony during which their friends and families laughed and cried. The bouquets, boutonnieres and the ceremony arch were created by A Night in Bloom florists. afterward the ceremony, cocktails flowed and everyone moved into the tent for dinner, which was catered by the lekker food truck. a dance floor fueled by the truly talented Eturnity Band followed dinner and lasted into the night. an ice cream station was the perfect treat for this hot summer night. nicole and erik are so cute together and we are so grateful to have been a part of their beautiful outdoorsy wedding day.

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
