Miranda + Ethan's Tender Library Inspired Wedding – Manhattan, New York

Getting married in Midtown has its advantages. Miranda and Ethan were thrilled to take portraits at the New York Public Library on 5th Ave, and inside Grand Central Station. Even though their wedding fell on the same weekend as Hurricane Joaquin, they had no qualms embracing the great outdoors. 

This easy-going couple was married in front of 35 family members and friends at the Library Hotel. Letting the day of love take lead, both Miranda and Ethan took a spontaneous approach and improvised their vows. Bite-sized treats passed through the reception as the lovebirds were toasted, and the bridal party was gifted unique stained glass brooches. The relaxed, sweet vibe was perfect for Miranda and Ethan.

Arthur + Scott's Playful and Romantic Catskills Wedding – Hudson Valley, New York

I first met Arthur and Scott at a cozy cafe in Park Slope. I was immediately taken by their warmth and effusive love. Their wedding day fell on the most gorgeous fall weekend. Surrounded by vibrant foliage, Arthur and Scott pledged their love in front of their family and friends. Afterwards, we danced the night away in the cool, clean mountain air. From matching superhero cufflinks to board game table decor, Arthur and Scott’s wedding was perfectly them.

Alice + Catie's Jumpin for Joy Engagement – Brooklyn, NY

Alice and Catie wanted to celebrate their love in the most colorful way possible! I love adventuresome couples. Alice and Catie are two enthusiastic, kind, badass Brooklyn ladies. Catie works at Kickstarter HQ, and Alice is a dentist primarily serving New York’s LGBT community.

From the Bushwick Collective murals, to the cherry blossoms on Roosevelt Island, Alice and Catie were up for anything. We ended the day in a burst of color by the East River. Covered head to toe in Holi powder, Alice and Catie couldn't stop giggling. It made me realize again just how contagious love is.
