An Intimate Wedding at Central Park Conservatory Gardens and Daniel Restaurant

As most couples know, true love is hard to find so when you find your soulmate even at a young age, you want to hold on to them forever. Neana and Ali are a pair of high school sweethearts who dated long distance (east coast/west coast) while Ali went to medical school and afterwards, began living in a brand new city as a couple. So, when Ali proposed, this west coast couple had an east coast wedding in the place they now call home, New York City. Neana looked simply radiant in her ivory lace wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier and we all drooled over her pearl and bow heels by Chanel. Their wedding day called for rain so we decided to take their bride and groom portraits inside Grand Central Station. The beauty of the city really shines through this renovated masterpiece, which happens to be one of Neana's favorite places in all of Manhattan. When we reached the Central Park Conservatory Gardens, the rain stopped and we were able to roam around the garden for some more photos. The happy couple were married underneath the ivy covered pergola in middle of the Conservatory Gardens. Their Persian wedding ceremony was filled with so many wonderful traditions that I had never captured before. Towards the end of the ceremony, the couple is presented a bowl of honey and asked to each dip their pinky into the bowl and feed it to one another. Honey represents the sweetness of life and by doing this, it will bless them to have a happy honeymoon and therefore a sweet marriage. So romantic! After they exchanged their vows, the couple decided to celebrate their marriage with a small intimate reception at Daniel. Treating their family and friends to a decadent feast they will remember for years to come. Neana and Ali are just the sweetest, most thoughtful and one of the most wonderful couples I've ever had the pleasure of getting to know. Their wedding was so meaningful, elegant and completely stylish. xo

Brooklyn Maternity Session Photography

The sweet unknown while you wait for your baby to arrive is such an exciting time. You can't help but wonder when will they arrive, who will they look like and what is it really like becoming a parent? Well, each new expecting parent will soon have all those answers once their little bundle of joy arrives. I absolutely loved capturing Kailey and Drew's in-home maternity session at their apartment in Brooklyn. The morning light is my favorite time of day to capture these moments and their apartment was sun-drenched at just the right time. I cannot wait to meet their little guy and document this new family from the very beginning. xo

The Palm House Wedding at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

Weddings at the Brooklyn Botantic Gardens are my absolute favorite. You are in the middle of one of the busiest boroughs in all of New York City, yet once you enter beyond the gates, you find yourself inside a luscious garden that is quiet, calm, and completely picturesque which is exactly why Marilyn and Dan wanted to get married at The Palm House! The bride got ready at the ever stunning Crosby Street Hotel located in SoHo, Manhattan. The hotel rooms have an eclectic decor and abundance of natural light which is a photographers dream. Marilyn wore her grandmothers gold necklace, which has been worn by all the women in her family on their own wedding days for three generations and counting! It is a true family heirloom. The Bride wore a delicate lace embroidered wedding dress took everyone's breath away once she slipped it on. Dan and his groomsmen got ready at the couples apartment in historic Brooklyn Heights. Looking dapper in his tuxedo, he was excited to travel to Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for the couples first look in front of The Palm House. We took full advantage of the sun drenched magnolia plaza during their bride and groom portraits. Their wedding ceremony was held outside in front of a stunning tree just before sunset. Their priest was one of the funniest officiants ever and had everyone in attendance laughing out loud to his cheery annotates and clever analogies. Guests were treated to sunset cocktail hour outside on the terrace before the reception began inside stunning glass atrium of The Palm House. One of the most memorable speeches was given by Marilyn's father. He gushed about his daughters accomplishments before recounting one of his favorite childhood memories of Marilyn in her swimsuit as a baby. He even brought it from home for everyone to see! Marilyn and Dan know how to d-a-n-c-e and had a great time on the dance floor while Hank Lane Band brought the house down - no one sat down during the reception! The Bride and Groom are just the sweetest, kindest and most thoughtful couple and I'm so honored I was a part of their wedding celebration! Congratulations Marilyn and Dan! xo
