Oh. My. Goodness. Three little words, but it’s all I’ve got. Seriously, this Manhattan Same Day Edit from red Bicycle Media has me speechless. Speechless and a little teary. It’s romance, it’s luxury, it’s ab-so-lute beauty. Gorgeous. I could ramble on and on with more adjectives akin to stunning, but instead, I’ll simply introduce this New York City wedding. Before we get to the film (which is worth the wait, believe me) we have world renowned photographer Jerry Ghionis‘ take on the day. And there is even more in the gallery, lucky you!
From James with red Bicycle Media … Natalia and Wayne are a very warm, passionate, and loving couple who made us feel very much at home. Their vision was a winter themed wedding inspired by one of their trips to their weekend getaway in upstate New York. The film intertwines and contrasts their city life and the beautiful sereneness of the mountains. It culminates at Cipriani on 42nd Street where real snow, cold and wet came down at their first dance.
Natalia and Wayne are the exactly the type of couple we love to work with. They appreciated and loved the art of our storytelling and were “all in” as far as the process.
Natalia has said the Same Day Edit makes not just her cry, but has made her husband, their loved ones, and even relative strangers tear up. I have no problem admitting that I can attest to that fact. So grab you’re tissues and enjoy this stunning Same Day Edit from red Bicycle Media.
From the bride … My husband and I both grew up in New York City. When we decided we wanted to marry in the City, we envisioned something very formal and very romantic. We selected a venue, Cipriani 42, which we felt captured all of the romance of old New york. Converted from an old bank, the space still has the tellar walls and giant marble columns.
We thought the most romantic time of year to be married in New York is in the winter. We pictured a white wedding; all of our flowers were white and we brought in trees dusted with silver to ceate the feel of a snow covered forest. We chose to call for black tie, to further the formality and romance of a winter wedding in New York. People couldn’t understand why we wanted a winter wedding, and, at first, kept asking “What if there is a storm?” We really wanted the city to be covered in a layer of white snow.
Of course, it hardly ever snows in New York in the middle of December, so our event designer David Beahm brought in a snow machine and timed it with our first dance. None of the guests could believe it was snowing on the dance floor! New York City is a magical place to get married and we are so happy we chose to celebrate the beginning of our new lives together in our city!
