Emily+Marco | Wave Hill, New York City

Emily and Marco had one of my favorite celebrations of 2013. September is the perfect time of year for a wedding in New York and theirs did not disappoint. They had a kick ass New Orleans jazz band play throughout, Saipua florals and decorations, and it was black tie all the way. My clients never fail to impress and these two brought it big time. Emily wore this insane J. Mendel top, Christian Dior skirt (with black tulle layered underneath) and metallic Dior heels. Totally untraditional and completely amazing.

The girls started getting ready at the Greenwich Hotel in Manhattan where the rehearsal dinner was held the night before. On the way from the hotel to Wave Hill I found out most of the “non-bridesmaids” and the bride had gone to my high school, albeit five years later. I felt old.

Wave Hill is this amazing oasis in the middle of the Bronx. The location makes for an incredible backdrop to a wedding and Saipua managed to make it even more incredible with their event design and florals. After a few hours kicking it to The Swamp Donkeys and killer DJ everyone got back on the bus and headed downtown to Joe’s at the Public for the after party. By that time I was technically done and was able to indulge in a few cocktails and sliders in a theatre where basically every thespian you’ve ever heard of has hit the stage. A good night was had by all.

This wedding was also featured in the special issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, on their website and on the oh so lovely wedding blog Once Wed. You can see their rehearsal dinner at Locanda Verde here and the polaroids from their day here.

Emily+Marco | Rehearsal Dinner | Locanda Verde, Greenwich Hotel, NYC

The night before Emily and Marco’s black tie bash at Wave Hill there was an intimate affair at Locanda Verde in the Greenwich Hotel. If you’ve never been to the the hotel it’s totally worth the trip. It’s owned and designed by Robert Deniro with a focus on his father’s Picasso style paintings which you can find hanging throughout. Locanda Verde is located on the ground floor and to say the food is spectacular would be the understatement of the year. When I was leaving for the night someone outside asked me who I was waiting for, assuming that I was paparazzi, which I thought was hilarious. So very New York.

Jeremy+Joe | Verana Hotel | Yelapa, Mexico

I was over the moon excited when Jeremy and Joe contacted me about their wedding at Verana. I am a huge proponent of gay marriage and couldn’t be happier that this was my first same sex wedding. All love should be celebrated and it blows my mind that in 2014 we actually still need to explain this to people. Get with the program kids (and by kids I mean Congress).

It was a small intimate affair with amazingly talented people, hand-painted suits, and just a little bit of rain. And love. Lots and lots of love. As it should be.

Karen+Sean | Wedding | Kennebunkport, ME

I’ve really been digging the more intimate affairs lately. Sharing such a life changing event is incredibly moving no matter how many people are there to share it, but when it is an elopement or immediate family it tends to make me feel even closer to my clients than I already do. Karen and Sean got married at Cabot Cove in Kennebunkport, ME with a grand total of seven people including themselves. Karen had found me through her friend Ella whose wedding I photographed in Bucerias, Mexico a while back. Theirs was a classic New England affair complete with cornhole (possibly the most amazing backyard game ever and if you’re not from New England you should google it right now) and a picture perfect Maine waterfront sunset. When I had finished shooting for the night and was leaving to let them sit down for dinner Karen’s mother told me it wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t sit down and celebrate with them. A glass of wine was poured and a chair was pulled out and I had one of the most entertaining family dinners that I’ve had in a long time. It’s humbling to be let into people’s lives like you’ve known each other for years and every time it happens I feel so lucky to be a part of it. Thank you for treating me like family.

Karen - WOW! You captured our day to perfection! Everyone who has seen the photos has said they truly felt like there were there. I really wanted to find someone who could capture the experience, laughter, emotion and location (who is just as important as the guests), and you mastered everything. I relive the day every time I see the photos. Our day would not have been as special without you.

silvana - Love this Jill!!
