Bryant Park Grill wedding: Allyson and Isaac

You don’t generally associate “Midtown Manhattan” and “chill,” but Allyson and Isaac’s wedding at the Bryant Park Grill managed to achieve that feeling with a keen focus on the big picture — whatever happens, they still get to marry their best friend. When I consulted with Isaac a couple days before the wedding and said “Unfortunately it looks like your wedding is going to be the coldest day in weeks, should we change anything?” He was able to just say “Nah, we’ll be good whatever happens.” Of course, in Manhattan it helps when everything is within walking distance from each other. Allyson got ready at the Bryant Park Hotel, which is as close to the Bryant Park Grill as it sounds  — her hotel room, which doubled for the ketubah signing, actually looked out over the ceremony.

Isaac says: “Allyson has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met.” He loved the first look at Grand Central, which they chose not just for its beauty but because it has played roles in their daily life and the lives of their parents. He says “that was when it all hit me in the face, it was really happening, the best day of my life was finally here.”

Allyson says: “Isaac’s sincerity is one of the the qualities I love most about him. He makes everyone in the room feel special, welcome and wanted.” She also loved the raucous celebrations with Kinky Spigot and the Welders: “After dinner, I was dancing to ‘Boogie on Reggae Woman’ and totally getting my groove on. I turned around and saw the entire crowd on the dance floor having a fun time. Not a single person was seated. It was an awesome moment!”

I loved being able to share a day like this with Tatiana — our only problem is that the dancing was so much fun we wanted to be in it, but shooting a reception has a rhythm and a movement to it, to put us in the middle of all of the energy.

Midtown Loft and Terrace Wedding: Patrick and Lisa

How do you know a couple is really serious about this whole “together forever” thing? Three words: wedding ring tattoos.

If nothing else about Lisa and Patrick’s wedding was extraordinary, it would still have been one of my favorite quick stops in 450 or so weddings. Their gorgeous style presented an incredible juxtaposition against the calculatedly rough interior of the tattoo shop, but it was their sweet expressions during the process that got me. This is more than ink, this is the mark of a new life.

Then you add the hundreds of other touches that they put in to make sure that this wedding stood out: A 007 theme complete with ice luge and baccarat table (along with someone to explain to uncultured louts like myself how to play baccarat); wedding vows delivered by drone (which amazingly did not end in disaster, despite the rooftop ceremony); cake cut with a samurai sword, complete with lessons about how to draw a katana while wearing a tuxedo, and on and on. Tatiana Breslow and I had an absolute ball with this day and are so happy we can share it with you.

Ali and Doug’s Studio Square Wedding

It’s hard to go wrong with a couple as smart, funny, and friendly as Ali and Doug … and it doesn’t hurt that Ali looks like Anne Hathaway, either. Their wedding at Studio Square had everything you need for a great time — good friends, family, a giant pig on a spit and a Lionel Ritchie impersonator. That’s a party.

It was a rainy day, but that didn’t slow us down at all — we managed to do an entire portrait session in Central Park with Ali standing in one spot to protect the dress. On my vest, actually, for total protection — full-service wedding photography comes with chivalry.

Congratulations!

Karen and Ajay’s Ritz-Carlton Wedding

How do you get more awesome than a gorgeous, intimate wedding marrying Indian and German traditions at the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park?. Well, technically Karen and Ajay’s first dance was to “99 Luftbalons,” which I think is amazing.

It’s a good thing that Karen has a gorgeous laugh, because in almost 200 wedding I have never seen a bride spend so much time in utter, delighted hysterics. It helps that the speech jointly delivered by her brothers was absolutely hilarious.

All of Karen’s side had to come all the way from Germany for this wedding, and they did, which shows the fantastic connections to friends and family this couple has.
