Nothing like a NYC summer wedding to photograph to show how much love is in the air. He's from Canada, she's from New York, and together they are the sweetest couple you can meet. With the threat of rainstorms all week, Tina & Matt's wedding was nothing but sunshine...well a lot of it. However, you couldn't tell it was about 90 degrees outside with the way this bridal party carried on. With a bottle of water in each of their hand we set off for Central Park after a touching first look at the Park Central Hotel in Manhattan, New York City. The hotel was busy and packed with tourists, but I found a section that was more calm and had the groom stand there and wait for his bride to come up the stairs. Tina looked amazing in her custom made gown created by one of her bridesmaids Namyoung Park (Nammade). Every detail is very much like the bride's personality and it was no wonder Matt had the reaction he did when he first saw his bride in her gown. After a touching moment, we were off to the Park. I figured start the session inside a tunnel to wean the party towards more sun later on. After this scene, headed to Bethesda Fountain and cooled off underneath the gorgeous archways and ceilings by the fountain. We ended the session at The Mall...However, we lost two groomsmen on the way out of the park, so the ladies decided to get a quick picture by John Lennon's "IMAGINE" tribute. All in all it was a fun photography session, and an even more fun reception! One highlight of the night was the groom serenading his beautiful bride. Yes, he sings and plays the guitar and I can attest to the fact that every woman in the room swooned whether they were already married or not. It was amazing to hear and see and I was very happy to capture it all. Even more amazing was the sunset. The reception took place at the Sunset Terrace in Chelsea Piers and it was definitely a sunset to behold. The backdrop looked amazing and this photographer took advantage of the gorgeous colors. Tina and Matt, thank you for giving me the honor to photograph your wedding. Here are a few highlights from their wedding day as well as their photo sliedeshow!
