Glasserie Wedding, The Box House Hotel, Greenpoint, Brooklyn: Kim and Derekh

Kim and Derekh had an unforgettable wedding last fall with The Glasserie at the Box House Hotel rooftop. The Greenpoint Brooklyn location meant killer views of the Manhattan skyline, but the truly memorable parts were the laughs, the uber-sweet ceremony, and the absolutely epic dance floor.

Jess and Rich are so silly and sweet and CHILL (seriously, how do I get so lucky to get such laid-back, cool couples??). You may remember them from their fun Coney Island, Brooklyn engagement session we did last year and now they are back with their wedding at Terrace on the Park in Queens.

Battery Gardens Wedding, NYC: Nicole and Rohan

Battery Gardens Wedding, NYC: Nicole and Rohan

When I met Nicole she was in the midst of planning not one, but three different weddings. She and Rohan were so excited for the big day they wanted to do it again and again. :) Actually they were having a big wedding in India planned with a lot of help from Rohan's family in August. Leading up to this they wanted to make it official with a city hall elopement first and then following it was a celebration at Battery Gardens in New York City for friends and family who couldn't make the trek to India the first time around. 

Amy and Ted: Haven's Kitchen Wedding, Chelsea, NYC.

Amy and Ted: Haven's Kitchen Wedding, Chelsea, NYC.

As soon as I met Amy and Ted I felt a connection. They met, as my husband and I did, through their theatre department in college. They moved first to San Francisco and then to New York City together, building their adult lives hand-in-hand. When they decided to get married they didn’t want to have to follow all of the traditional tropes and traditions that society seems to dictate. Amy and Ted wanted a chill and relaxing event with their families and friends, which is exactly what they had.

Times Square Terrace Wedding: Jennifer and Eric

Times Square Terrace Wedding: Jennifer and Eric

As the curtain went up on the tour of "Mama Mia" there was a full audience, a lot of energy on the stage, and two lovely folks meeting in the wings. Jennifer and Eric's friendship began right there, with the songs of Abba surrounding them. After multiple shows, tours, and adventures Jen and Eric got married steps away from Times Square and Broadway. Despite the location and though they are both part of the showbiz industry their wedding was simple and intimate, taking place on a greenery-laden private terrace. Their close family and friends (and adorable dog ring-bearer Betty White) joined them to celebrate on the beautiful New York City fall evening.

New York City Newborn: Aurora

It's sometimes a crazy experience watching friends you've known for years and years have their first child. I've known Mary and Kurtis since college so I've partied with them, watched them get married, shared meals, experienced all of us moving to New York City and shared loads of conversations with them. Yet there's nothing quite so special as watching them take their first steps into parenthood.

Elegant, Nautical NYC Wedding. Lian and Jean-Francois.

Jean-Francois and Lian were born half a world away from one another in France and in China. Years later they would meet another world away in New York City. The travels that led them together inspired a nautical wedding theme. They were married at The Water Club, a restaurant designed like a boat that is located on the East River in New York City. "The Captain" oversaw their vows, which of course incorporated the ship and sea theme.
