Am off to do more post-processing but couldn’t wait to post these images of my RADIANT clients! Am also slightly obsessed with my latest PS3 game…FF XIII! Love the characters, the gameplay, the story.  Hope everyone is enjoying the fabulous weather in NYC!

Danielle and Nathan – Bayards, NYC Part 1

Sorry for the lack of posts but have been extremely busy – shoots almost every weekend since I have gotten back from vacation, and more shoots to come! Hopefully this post will be filled with lovely eyecandy to tide you over.

2 weekends ago, I photographed Danielle and Nathan’s beautiful wedding at Bayard’s in downtown NYC. We were supposed to have the wedding outside at the Elevated Garden, but unfortunately the soggy weather didn’t allow for that. Nonetheless, the beautiful ceremony room at Bayard’s was a great back up location, if only a tad small. Running up and down a single tiny aisle was hard! Especially since I had to duck down most of the time to not block the guests’ view. The ceremony was short but so heartfelt and emotional. Both the bride and groom got teary-eyed and it was just so sweet! Bayard’s has an old world New York feel to it, very charming and vintage-y. Sort of made you feel like you stepped back in time to a much grander period in history.

Aside from the weather, everything ran rather behind schedule so instead of doing portraits and bridal party pics before the ceremony, we had to squeeze it in after the ceremony. Luckily we had a very photogenic group of guys and gals so it wasn’t very hard!

Here are some pics from the big day:

 

 

The beautiful dress. This one was for the ceremony.

 

And another stunner with gorgeous embroidery for the reception.

 

 

And the shoes!!! LOVED the purple color. Now I feel like I should have worn some colorful shoes for my wedding. I guess it didn’t matter since I wore flip flops most of the time, but gosh I just love it when brides have pretty shoes!!

 

 

 

 

The lovely girl below is the groom’s adorable daughter, Orianna (I hope I spelled that right!!) She was sooo cute!

 

The exquisite bridal party

 

 

The beautiful bride getting ready. On a side note, I did the bride’s makeup too! Everyone was scrambling around, and I have experience with makeup so I offered to do it for the bride. Honestly, Danielle was just so gorgeous to begin with, I didn’t have to do much at all. So, I don’t have many pictures of her getting made up, since I was doing it!

 

 

Stunning isn’t she? I must admit, I really like the makeup job I did!  I dont’ usually offer makeup services but I am happy to lend a hand if needed =)

 

The beautiful and lush bouquet was created by Mary Poston from Simply Unique Weddings and Events. She said this was the first bouquet she’s ever created herself (she usually directs them as they are made!) but I would never had known! It was simply divine, and I love how Danielle added the sparkly turtle brooch.

 

Hmm, how does this veil go on?

 

Dress? check. Veil? check. Flowergirl? check.

 

A teary Danielle walking down with her brother. Love how emotional this shot is.

 

Married!!!

 

 

I love the next two shots. Since there was no meeting before the ceremony, this was their time to really snuggle right after the ceremony

 

 

Some group shots:

 

 

Will be back to add a few more pics later on! In the meantime, Enjoy the weekend!!
