Last month I shot the lovely Lylah & Xavier’s wedding at The Ravel Hotel in Long Island City, Queens. Although it was supposed to rain, it never did, and ended up being an absolutely spectacular day. I had never shot at the Ravel, and I have to say – there is no better view of New York City than from the roof of this hotel. It is absolutely breathtaking. This wedding. Oh, this wedding. It was just so beautiful in every way.
I started the day in Lylah’s suite, where she got ready with her sweet family, while my amazing second shooter – Jasmine Edwards – headed to Xavier’s hotel in Brooklyn to start the day with him. Late that afternoon, we all converged on the rooftop for an intimate and beautiful ceremony officiated by the incredible Sherri Weinstein of And Now You May Kiss. And then it was time to party… and boy, did this group party! I think I have some of my absolute favorite dancing photographs from this wedding.
Lylah & Xavier’s wedding was absolutely beautiful and so love filled, and I was thrilled to be a part of it. (And can I just say – how ridiculously amazing is Lylah’s dress?!?! She designed it herself and had it custom made! Incredible.)
