In the middle of renovating a home and anticipating becoming a family of three, and Kate and Sylvester married in an intimate ceremony in the side chapel of the iconic Christ Church on 60th and Park. Sylvester’s family has been this United Methodist church for decades, and the ceremony was incredibly beautiful.
We walked around together after as family headed to the restaurant, taking photos in the Upper East Side, including in a bar that was perfectly them, and arrived to the restaurant to bubbles. (Someone kept talking about a “bubble fish” and I had no idea what it was - it’s a cheap bubble blower that makes a ton of bubbles rather than just the few you get when you blow them, and now I think every wedding should have them.)
They told me a story of an early date, where they had their first kiss in a photo booth, and wished they could find the photo, however, with home renovations they were sure it was packed away. I called the hotel where the photo booth was, got the name of the photo booth company, called the guy at the photo booth company, had him track down the shot in his digital archives, send it to me, and then I was able to print it and bring it to their wedding.
It was a New York miracle. (And when I say “I’d do anything for my clients,” you know I mean it!")
Two sweet things: the bouquet is mum made, and one of the loveliest I’ve seen. Their cake toppers are perfect replicas of them, right down to the two tiny white patches in Sylvester’s beard.
