Wedding: Allie and Vilas at TriBeCa Rooftop

Tribeca Rooftop is a gorgeous venue for anybody, but it was uniquely perfect for Allie and Vilas — they live about 20 feet away. There’s nothing like the convenience of being able to stop by your (awesome) apartment if you need something during the day. And what a day it was — the rain held off, allowing a gorgeous ceremony on the roof, and the reception hall was stunningly decorated, including hundreds of carefully hung tea lights over the dance floor.

There were enough little touches that even some of the venue operators (who have seen a LOT of events) were marvelling. “How cool is this?” One of them asked me about a plaque that spelled out their new name, entirely using architectural detail from around the city instead of letters (watch the slideshow to see it — consider that the director’s cut).

There was a personal emergency for the couple before the wedding (that I won’t describe for privacy reasons), and it made the day and the throng of loving, joyful friends and family all the more poignant. It was a joy to document the day for them. Congratulations!

  3. I like the one where the groom is doing the zombie walk. Maybe not intended to look like that, but still really, really cool :)

    And I loooove the one with the blue ceiling and the lines. You’re awesome, Ryan Brenizer.

  5. Your party shots are always so fun! I have to wonder if just your sheer presence at a wedding up the fun level a few notches :) Oh and I adore the picture of them sitting up high with the skylight in the background…the colors are to die for!

  6. Awesome as usual, Ryan. Great moments. Love the look the bride gives the bridesmaid at the top of the recessional. Great version of “Yellow”, too ;-)
