Last month I photographed a beautiful classic Manhattan wedding at Studio 450. Between the planner, Ariel Perryman of Hold Your Hand Events, and the Riviera caterers from Brooklyn who were impressively awesome, I felt like I was part of a great team. Of course, Robyn and Terrence are amazing - plus their families can DANCE! - and I'm so grateful to have been a part of their day.
We started getting ready with the girls at an Air BnB a few blocks away from the venue. This idea is so brilliant. You have to work a little harder to find just the right space to get ready in, but when you find one, it saves you a ton of money over a hotel room, plus it lets you live like a local while you're visiting a new city.
The details at their event were thoughtful: the groom wore a memorial boutonniere with a photo of him and his late mother on it, and his sister wore a daisy pin on her bridesmaid dress in memory of her, too. His hilarious Vans shoes featured his favorite character: Snoopy!
After being pronounced husband and wife everyone danced the night away, and the newlyweds cut into a delicious cake by Baked (I will gleefully take credit for this suggestion - their not-too-sweet frosting is soooo good.)
I got this sweet email from them after they got their photos:
Thank you so much our family and friends had a blast and it really shows in your photos! You did an amazing job of capturing us and our family at our happiest and we thank you so much for that!
You are welcome, Robyn and Terrence. Congratulations!
