wedding day at the riviera – new york wedding photographer

you know your wedding day is special when it starts with a giant flying sea horse and ends with someone losing a tooth on the dance floor.

jenny + nelson’s happy spring wedding day began at the beach.   we chased them around the dunes (jenny in her super unique blush-pink gown from BHLDN) with our cameras before loading everyone onto the big yellow school bus en route to their traditional chinese tea ceremony.  after an emotional ceremony with their familial elders, we headed to the riviera, where the party was about to start.  jenny, nelson + most of their friends and families stayed glued to a super energetic dance floor as the sun set outside, overlooking the sound.  we recalled the bride’s original request (during our first phone call) to have a soul train line on her wedding day as the dj spun hip hop, old school 80s rap classics into modern beats during which no one even considered leaving the dance floor.  this party was non-stop until the lights went on!  cheers to jenny + nelson!!

wedding day at carlyle at the palace

dana + Joe…this was our kind of wedding.  our first encounter with these two was a super fun hang (over skype) during which, we laughed a lot (mostly about Joe’s ideas for reception table centerpieces– flowers vs. flour– joe, you remember, right??)…and continued laughing even after we closed our lap tops.  we were smitten by their happy, unique style and ideas for a sweet, art deco wedding with personalized touches.  dana + joe are definitely two people interested in keeping it REAL.  their crazy-cool, casual hometown engagement session was another window into this sparkly couple’s love story…after which, we were PSYCHED.  we knew this wedding was going to rock.  first of all, jamie + heather from Cheeky Details were running the show and we ADORE these beautiful, talented ladies!!  everything they touch turns to gold (…or pink…or rustic burlap– whatever your wedding calls for).  They conceptualized and managed a gorgeous celebration and somehow had time to cover the exquisite florals, as well.  we also loved the vintage art deco vibe of dana + joe’s venue, carlyle at the palace in plainview, new york.  perfect day for one of our fav duos!!  D + J– JUST KEEP LAUGHING!!!

obsessed with this happy haha hee-hee heh haaaaahhh wall art!  dana knows how to give bridesmaids gifts!
