As soon as we walked into the suite where Nandita was getting ready on Sunday, I knew it was going to be a good day. This room had incredible light and beautiful, elegant furniture. You photographers out there will feel me on that, that it just makes the day SO much better when everything just works right from the beginning! And that sort of became the theme for the day….everything just flowed so easy and everything was so, SO beautiful with great light!
Nan & Georgio are honestly a DREAM of a couple! They are all the things we look for in our ideal J&M couples & love about them…..they are first & foremost, SO in love! Their joy is the kind of happiness that fills a room, even one as big as Gotham Hall. Their love is bigger. It fills up ever corner & every heart that it touches. And it just makes you happier that love is a thing that exists in this world. Secondly, and almost just as important to why they are such a dream couple, these guys trust us completely! Ahhh I can’t tell you how much life that breathes into us. To have the freedom to shoot it however we see it, and for them to be down for anything if it means good pictures! Brides out there, I can’t tell you how much that does for your photographers! Us creative types do our best work when you allow us to…create!! :) Nan & Georgio, thank you SO much for giving us the time & the freedom to create art and tell stories, not just a list of “supposed to” shots! We fell more in love with photography, and more in love with, well…love, because of you.
Besides all the reasons that we loved the day, N&G just had what you would call a textbook perfect wedding day! Gorgeous, not too hot, breezy weather, a huge gathering of friends & family who love them dearly, a heartfelt, emotional ceremony, amazing dancing and a super fun party, hugs, laughter, happy tears, and one of the most emotional father-daughter dances I’ve ever witnessed. I usually get a little teary behind the camera, but this was the first time in while where I had to take a deep breath & pull it together! Throw into the mix greek dancing, classic black tie plus a white dinner jacket outfit change, a dress the bride designed herself and had custom made (with optional lengths! :) the insanely beautiful backdrop that is Gotham Hall, and a super talented team of creatives that was a JOY to work with….and honestly, it just doesn’t get any better than that!
N&G, we love you guys to the moon & back! I hope you are sipping something fruity in Mexico, but when you get back we have a date for wine tasting on Long Island! Because you guys are now officially our Clients Turned Friends….for life!!
SO much love!
