Alexa + Brian ~ New York City Wedding ~ Current, Pier 59

We had the pleasure of working with Alexa and Brian at their NYC wedding on Friday at Current, Chelsea Piers. We worked alongside our talented friend Rebecca from Four Doves on video, as well as their amazing planner Elodie from Tall and Small Events. Unfortunately it ended up raining the entire day, but luckily the floor to ceiling windows at the venue provided the most amazing filtered natural light for the whole day! Brian got ready at a hotel nearby, while Alexa and her bridesmaids had hair and makeup done at the bridal suite at Current. After Alexa got dressed with the help of her Mom and her twin sisters the girls opened letters written to them from their Father, and they couldn’t even get through the first sentence without crying! We had a first look with Dad after they read the letters, and then Brian arrived from the hotel to see his beautiful bride before their ceremony. Their first look was so sweet, and the space by those beautiful windows was absolutely perfect. These two hadn’t done an engagement session with us before the wedding, but even without the coaching that I do at engagement sessions they were so incredibly easy to photograph and overall such a pleasure to work with! We photographed all of their portraits before their ceremony, all within the venue due to the rain, but we were able to do so much in the space! I couldn’t have asked for better lighting on such a rainy day! Their ceremony was beautiful and took place after sunset in their ballroom. They went right into cocktail hour to enjoy with their family and friends. Their reception was so much fun, with a packed dance floor, three heartfelt speeches, and cupcakes in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. At the end of the night it finally stopped raining and it was unseasonably warm so we snuck outside for a few minutes to take a few nighttime photos before packing up. I absolutely loved this day, and I loved working with these two and their families!

Congratulations again Alexa + Brian! Here’s to many years of smiling and dancing together {even when its raining}!
