Eventi Wedding in Manhattan ● Loy + David

August 2, 2016

Last summer, I had the honor of photographing David’s proposal to Loy. They were visiting from Florida to attend David’s cousin wedding, and the next day David popped the question in the Conservancy Garden in Central Park. David booked me pretty far in advance, and together we spent a lot of time creating the perfect proposal. By the time the proposal rolled around, I felt like I knew both of them so well already! So it was an absolute joy when they asked me to be their wedding photographer. Despite not living in the city, they really wanted to get married here (who could blame them??). They wanted to find a venue with a rooftop view, and found the perfect place in Hotel Eventi on 6th Avenue, which has an amazing view of the Empire State Building. They opted for a first look (which is always a GREAT idea – I’ve written a post about the reasons why here) and had plenty of time with each other and family before the ceremony.

Speaking of family, this was truly an event with a strong and amazing support system: Loy’s father officiated the wedding, giving the ceremony an intimate feel. Loy enlisted the help of two talented friends to do hair and makeup (and doesn’t she look flawless??). It’s not easy planning a wedding from a thousand miles away, but with the help of Dominique, everything went off without a hitch.

Since the wedding was in December, there was a festive theme tied into everything as well. It was so much fun! Congratulations to Loy and David, two amazing people and now folks I’m happy to call my friends 🙂
