From photographer, Antonio Rocha…The wedding of Ashley and Michael was one with a rich history, deep friendships, and memorable moments. Their wedding took place in the very beautiful NYIT de Seversky Mansion. Guests came from all over the world to witness this union.
During the ceremony, Ashley and Michael exchanged handwritten vows. Ashley’s Maid of Honor was her longtime friend, Ashley, who has witnessed the love couple has for each other first hand and knew Michael was in love with Ashley since the moment he met her. Michaels’s bestman, was his college friend, Kwame. They studied together at Harvard and have been friends ever since. Paying homage to their African roots, the couple jumped the broom after exchanging rings.
After the ceremony, the guest were escorted into the library where they had cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. After cocktail hour, the reception started with the traditional first dance soon followed by the New Orleans style second line around the mansion. Since Ashley is from New Orleans, it was a must for the wedding. It was an elegant and lovely wedding.

Lauren of Loli Events… Although brief, Springtime in New York is always rejuvenating and exciting. Everything feels brighter, happier and just full of life. This shoot captured exactly that with a perfect dose of glamour and whimsy. The beautiful grounds of the Old Westbury Gardens was a no- brainer as a backdrop. Everything there is lush, thoughtful and simply stunning. Our goal as luxury wedding vendors was to capture some serious beauty while having fun and enjoy the moment. It is so easy to get caught up and forget to pause and take in your surroundings. This shoot is dedicated to creating a bit of wanderlust and a need to just take a slow deep breath.

From Brklyn View Photography… The NYIT De Seversky Mansion was the perfect location to celebrate Tiffany and Cliff’s modern, romantic and elegant wedding. Tiffany wore a stunning Mark Ingram Atelier wedding gown that her mother hand-beaded just to give it that extra sparkle. It took her almost two weeks to complete! Throughout the day, it rained on and off but once Tiffany started to put on her wedding dress, the sun came out to say hello. It was also just in time for their sweet & stunning First Look. Cliff looked as dashing as ever in his tuxedo and wore his lucky beaded bracelet just for the days festivities. During their ceremony, the sun came back out to fill the garden room with a kiss of light, and it felt as if they were being blessed at the very moment they became husband and wife. During their reception, Cliff sang two songs to his lovely wife as a special gift just for her. The newlyweds danced the night away surrounded by their friends and family. I’m so thrilled I could be there and capture their wedding day for them. It was truly a magical celebration! Congratulations Tiffany and Cliff!
