A Waldorf Astoria Wedding

Wedding ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria Towers

How about a little touch of glamour to get your weekend started?  Jill and Ed are two of my favorite clients from this year whose Waldorf Astoria wedding was brimming with elegant and unique details.  To start with, they were married in a suite that was the the luxurious former residence of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.  I mean, if you’re going to do a small wedding, why not make it spectacular?  The opulence of the suite and its sweeping views of midtown were matched with a cozy intimacy which was perfect for the small guest list.

A Chic Bergdorf Goodman Wedding

With the end of the year fast approaching, I wanted to share with you one of my all-time favorite weddings from April of this year.  Carol and Chris are from the United Kingdom, and wanted to uniquely say their vows in the city they both love: New York.  Their wedding was both a nod to tradition and a fabulous party that celebrated their individual tastes.  For starters, in classic New York fashion, they got ready at the Plaza Hotel.  The ceremony was held at All Souls Unitarian Church (my church!) on the upper east side and was simply beautiful.  With only 22 guests, they had the sanctuary all to themselves.  But why hire the church choir when you can get David Letterman’s own Late Show Gospel Choir?  The choir was captivating, and their voices filled the space.  It was a bit like having a theater performance during the ceremony.

So my maternity shoot with Melanie and Jalani is today, but I wanted to first introduce them to you with photos from their Flushing Meadows Park wedding in April of this year.  This couple are Queens natives, and proud of it!  Their ceremony was held in the shade of the World’s Fair Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and the reception followed at the Rainhas Churrascaria.  As a resident of Queens myself (team Kew Gardens!), I was proud to photograph these two.

Becky & Jim: A Central Park Wedding

A Central Park wedding beside the Bethesda Fountain by photographer Kelly Williams

Talk about a whirlwind romance!  Becky & Jim met late last year in an Irish bar on a rainy Sunday night.  This chance meeting led to love, and Becky and Jim officially tied the knot in classic New York fashion beside the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park.  While the couple is planning a larger church ceremony in the spring or summer for their families, along with a party in Ireland for Jim’s clan, this was a chance for their nearest and dearest to get together and watch the couple say their ‘I Do’s.’  Check out the fancy horse and carriage which brought the bride and her friends to Bethesda Terrace, as well as the Scottish bagpipers who just happened to be in the park at the same time as the wedding.  A little touch of home (UK) for Jim.  Congrats to Becky & Jim, and enjoy the pics from their Central Park wedding!
