With a little help from 7 of her bridesmaids and a very dedicated bridesman, Stephanie walked out of The Palace Hotel and up 51st street towards St Patrick’s Cathedral where her handsome groom Jonathan was waiting under the alter. Stephanie’s father (who was fighting back tears) escorted her down the aisle as the congregation of all their family and friends were there to greet her. Stephanie looked breathtakingly gorgeous and Jonathan’s glowing smile was heart warming as he saw her walking towards him. After their beautiful ceremony all the guests paraded down 50th street towards The Pool restaurant for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. In the meantime, Stephanie and Jonathan headed back to The Palace Hotel to spend a few minutes alone and freshen up.
After a glass (or 2) of champagne, and now in her 2nd of 3 dresses, Stephanie could breathe a little easier. The stressful part of the day was now behind them and it was time to celebrate! On the way to join their guests at The Pool, we had a lot of fun taking candid photos of the happy couple on the streets of New York. Since they opted to not have a “first look” moment before the ceremony, this was an ideal time for us to get a lot of beautiful bride & groom photos.
The rest of the night went off without a hitch. When cocktail hour ended everyone proceeded to the candlelit ballroom for dinner and dancing. After cutting their wedding cake and a handful of heartfelt speeches, the guests entered The Grill room for the after party. Some of our favorite shots are from when Stephanie (rockin’ her 3rd dress) and Jonathan poured endless bottles of champagne down a 7 tier tower of glasses. They sipped champagne with the late-night crowd, and together sang their favorite tunes around two dueling pianos. We can’t imagine a more satisfying end to a dream of a day.

There’s nothing that puts bigger smiles on our faces than to read these kinds of emails in the morning. Congratulations Kate & Blake, we are so happy for you!
“Our wedding day was more magical than we ever could have imagined. After all of the planning that was involved, it was amazing to see all of our ideas and visions come to life, and boy – were we blown away! The whole day and night was filled with endless happiness, love and emotion. I have so many unbelievable memories: From my first look with my dad, to my first look with Blake, to reciting our vows, to my dad’s tear jerking speech. The best part of it all was that Felix was there to capture every special moment, one after the next. He created the most unique and picturesque photos. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day!”- Kate & Blake

As photographers and as artists we are fortunate enough to be given a brand new canvas every single weekend. The different venues we travel to and the many faces we are given the opportunity to photograph produces an endless stream of creative new work. Nothing excites us more than shooting at a new venue especially when it’s as awesome as the One Hotel in Brooklyn. The rustic architecture and waterfront views made it the perfect backdrop to shoot this perfect couple. Check out some of our favorite images from Rachel & Efry’s gorgeous wedding below!
We had an amazing start to the New Year but we still have a lot of beautiful images to share from 2017!
Next up on our blog is Brittney & Brett!
“Our wedding day was more marvelous and magical than we could have ever expected. Having met in New York City on a cold November night, we wanted a New York City wedding. As we stood under the Chuppah while the sun set over the Hudson, we could feel the love of family and friends fill up the room. The entire day and night was a whirlwind of happiness, love and memories to come. From getting ready and our first look to reciting our vows and dancing the night away, Felix and his team were there to capture every moment of it. We couldn’t have asked for a more special and memorable day!” – B&B
