There’s just something about this engagement session captured by Elisabeth Millay Photography that makes me happy. Like, an all caps kind of HAPPY that puts a smile on your face that won’t go away. The reason? The beyond adorable duo strolling casually through the streets of their West Village neighborhood, looking uber-chic with their cute-as-can-be King Charles Spaniel, Lady, in tow. Don’t miss a minute and join me in the gallery for sooo much more.

Judy Pak knows a thing or two about snapping a pretty picture. And that’s a fact. Because the images she captures are always, always breathtaking – and have been the cause of quite a few happy dances here at SMP headquarters. Needless to say, when she sent along this gorgeous Greenwich Village e-session, we knew we were in for a love-filled treat. And the adorable couple, perfect city backdrop and gallery of beautiful images was just what we thought it would be. Amazing. Click here for more.

From Judy Pak Photography… Jeesun is a NYU professor and Thomas is an architect. They are quite the charming couple with an arsenal of amusing anecdotes — definitely the type of couple who gets invited to all the dinner parties. For their engagement session, we started around NYU, where much of their courtship took place, and ended at Central Park.
Jeesun and Thomas are a product of an interesting set-up — Thomas had no clue, and Jeesun was initially resistant to the idea. Jeesun’s friend had invited Thomas to be at her husband’s birthday, and Jeesun almost didn’t show up. That night, Thomas arrived late at the dinner and there were two chairs open – one happened to be next to Jeesun. Luckily, Thomas made the right choice and sat down next to the lovely lady he would eventually ask to be his wife. Although they are from two completely different cultures, these two are really from the same place.

From the Bride… Tristan and I knew from day one that we would get married in NYC. With him being from Seattle and me from Maryland, it was fate that brought us together one night on the subway. Yes, we met on the NYC subway, and he was the cutest thing I’d ever seen! With our wedding being in March, we knew it would have to be indoors. I was terrified of ballrooms with crystal and hot pink lighting, so it was important to us that our affair be extremely classy with elegant touches and of course a wild party to top it all off. We absolutely fell in love with Twenty Four Fifth, which is the old Fifth Avenue Hotel from the 1920′s located a block from the arch in Washington Square Park. The second we walked into this space and saw the antiqued mirrors and sunken dance floor, we were sold. It was absolutely perfect, and I immediately pictured beautiful candle centerpieces with simple flower arrangements. As for my bouquet, I had my heart set on white fringed tulips which my wonderful floral designer was able to track down, even though they were out of season. I absolutely loved it. Many of our unique touches were handmade by talented folks on Etsy — the feather pens, ad-lib guest book cards, grooms card, bridesmaids’ earrings, etc.
The ceremony was held at the Church of St. Joseph near Washington Square Park, which led to beautiful pictures in the park. Our guests then walked the two blocks to the reception. Our friends and family LOVE to dance, and my groom even sang his own version of “Melt with You” by Modern English to me as as sweet surprise. Our guests ended the night with hot dogs, NYC cart-style, and a copy of the New York Times from that day. It’s a very surreal thing to have everyone you love in one room, and that is something that will stay with us forever. Every detail of this day turned out perfectly (except when the groom’s limo accidentally went to Brooklyn on the way to the ceremony — oops!), and I think the pictures by Tara Leigh Photography could not be more exquisite. Her pictures help us re-live this wonderful day whenever we want.
