From first glance at that dress straight through to the reception, this wedding is all about the romance. Crafted by NYC Flower Project along with the image after gorgeous image by Sophie Kaye Photography, it’s awash in white with candles dotting the landscape and a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. And that, my friends, is the recipe for a truly beautiful day.
From the Photographer… Set in the gorgeous Liberty House Restaurant overlooking the Manhattan skyline, Ruth & Irvin said their vows and wed surrounded by their closest family and friends. The day was wonderful despite the winter weather – a combination of a classic New York ceremony with details brought in via the bride and groom’s culture and religion. Neither Ruth nor Irvin let the rain stop them from beautiful outdoor couple photos behind their venue, with an amazing backdrop of New York City, and were smiling the whole time. Outfitted in a stunning BHLDN gown of the palest petal pink, Ruth opted for timeless hair and makeup. They married under the glow of string lights as the sun set, and shared their first kiss (that they had saved for their wedding day!)
Their reception was one of the most beautiful i’ve ever photographed, tables dressed in soft white and green with fresh florals and hundreds of candles. I always recommend my couples include a lot of ambient light in their reception and this couple went all out – illuminating the room from both the inside and out which made for some incredible photos. Ruth changed into a gorgeous short reception dress, also from BHLDN, that she had worn a few months before for her engagement photos. Irvin’s brother serenaded the crowd for the beginning – singing for the couples first dance and parent dances. After the toasts, which left everyone laughing, a live band took over for the rest of the night. It was truly a wonderful celebration and I was thrilled to end 2016 with such an amazing wedding.
