The skies may have been gray and rainy, but the atmosphere inside the New York Palace on Stephanie & David’s wedding day was nothing but sunshine. These two lovely people had traveled to New York City from Australia to have a destination wedding in one of their favorite cities. I started the morning with Stephanie and her bridesmaids as they got ready. The amazing Anni Bruno did a gorgeous job on everyone’s make up and everyone’s hair looked stunning thanks to Sissi Chan. They popped open the champagne and Stephanie told some hilarious stories about David. The room was full of laughter. After a while I headed down to David’s room where he was getting dressed with his groomsmen, and the excitement in the room was palpable. It was immediately clear to me that these two were pretty much perfect for each other.
After everyone was dressed and ready to go, we headed down to the lobby for the First Look. We had originally planned to have the First Look in the hotel’s gorgeous courtyard, but the rain was still coming down pretty hard, so we rolled with it and found a fantastic spot in the lobby. Stephanie & David had one of my favorite First Look moments to date. Their faces were completely priceless. After the First Look we headed out to brave the rain for portraits, and I am absolutely thrilled with what we captured.
Stephanie & David were best friends for years and years before they started dating. Their wedding day had been a very long time coming, and I know they have a spectacular life ahead of them. I absolutely adored working with this couple and all their sweet friends, and I wish them so much happiness.
