taylor and dan wedding at brooklyn botanic garden

We’ll probably never forget the day we met Taylor and Dan in a coffee shop in soho.  Though they weren’t technically engaged yet, Taylor said she had been following us on social media for a while and already had pretty solid ideas of what she wanted for her wedding.  Her excitement + enthusiasm was totally contagious and we were immediately charmed by this quirky + cool force of energy from Queens and her tall, handsome, mid-western guy.

They tied the knot at the Brooklyn Botanic after an engagement that prioritized two things: to have a wedding that was uniquely theirs – true to their style, their relationship, and the things they love – and to throw a killer party for their friends and family.  Every detail at the wedding was personalized–R2D2 cake toppers (a nod to their love of Star Wars), a monogrammed corn hole board (a homage to their college football tailgating days at Boston College) and they used a bee motif for various items from stationery to the molded butter on each table.  Guests sipped signature cocktails with bee-motif’d cocktail stirrers as they signed in on Jenga blocks.(description from Viva Max Weddings)

We love these two and were so psyched to be the lucky photographers who documented their super fun, unique wedding day!!  Congrats, Tay + Dan!  #siercomesthebride

Annie + Alex’s wedding on the west side was eclectic, warm and a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple.  On a summery day in September, they said i do in their favorite spot on hudson river park and then celebrated with their friends and families in the west village. Their venue, 632 on hudson was transformed into the coolest cocktail party you’ve ever been to with the most fabulous food and most interesting guests + entertainment (including Samba dancers).  Totally obsessed with Annie’s blue suede shoes and reception switcheroo into a tres chic bridal jumpsuit.  Check out this sparkly day below!

Merry Christmas wedding at Coveleigh New York

It’s Christmas Eve!  Today’s wedding is really fanning the flames of our holiday spirit.  Gena + Dominick got married at Coveleigh in Rye, NY on a unseasonably warm day in December.  Everything sparkled, a-glow with white lights and red + gold glass ornaments.  After saying I do at the beautiful Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, the couple got cozy with their guests, drinking, dancing and toasting all night.  We loved their personalized extras like a Greek dessert trucked parked out front, lots of Greek dancing and our favorite late-night bonus: an outdoor S’mores station with a roast-your-own-marshmallows fire pit.  YAAAASSSS, please.  We think you’re going to love this adorable couple’s elegantly festive celebration.  Merry, merry Christmas from AG+AG!

Shannon and Joe wedding at the Bowery Hotel NYC

Shannon + Joe, a couple of light-hearted, happy New Yorkers, danced their way through their downtown-chic wedding celebration at The Bowery Hotel.  Not everyone can smile + laugh like these two on a single-digit-degree winter day in NYC, but they made it look completely effortless.  Though it really was a chilly day, we loved the warmth of the Bowery Hotel; the brick walls, glowing fireplaces, long wooden tables, gothic chandeliers + antique details.  Perfect spot for a fabulous cocktail/dinner party…and a dance floor that just wont quit.
