The Earth Day 2018 was celebrated by many but it was especially festive for Jaden’s family and friends. April 22nd was also Jaden’s very special birthday, he became Bar Mitzvah and his parents threw him the best party ever — a beautiful and fun river cruise on Hornblower’s Hybrid yacht. Surrounded by family and friends, Jaden, his family and friends enjoyed stunning views of Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline while munching on delectable foods and sipping yummy drinks. It was definitely a grand and FUN party to remember!
At the end of July, I had the pleasure of photographing not just an elegant and magnificent but celestial wedding of two beautiful people, Danielle and Yaw. It was a quintessential city wedding with the bride and groom getting ready at The Marmara hotel located steps away from their wedding venue, the Midtown Loft and Terrace.
Dani was walking on the stars in her dreamy and floating Pnina Tornai dress and her classy see through Christian Louboutin stilettos adorned with crystals. Dani’s outfit made her look like an angel enveloped gracefully in the clouds. To finish off the look, Dani’s glittering headpiece really made her Queen of the Stars.
It was such a beautiful and dreamy wedding, quite literally because this WAS, indeed, Dani’s dream perfectly executed in one memorable night.
I asked Dani to share their love story with me and it is as beautiful as this charming couple!
Yaw and I met officially the last week before our college graduation. I was a transfer student, so we almost graduated college without meeting one another. The last week of graduation, Yaw threw a party for the graduates and I accompanied a mutual friend to his party. We met that night, we became friends and soon after a couple. We dated throughout our 20’s, separating once for about a year and a half and then we found our way back to one another. Shortly after our reconciliation, surprise we were pregnant! Yaw took me to Paris for my 30th birthday and proposed to me by the Eiffel Tower and I said yes, of course. Then we saved for our wedding and on July 28th, 2018, I married my best friend!
What a magical evening it was! Hosted by Panache Bridal NY, this meet & greet event welcomed ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ host Monte Durham. Collaborating with a few other NYC’s top event professionals brought together by Steven Sendor at Sophisticated Weddings, our team provided comprehensive photography coverage for the event. It was a pleasure catching up with some of our old and wonderful industry friends and making some new incredible connections.
