The bride shares, “In the week leading up to the wedding, the forecast had been predicting rain, at one point an 80% chance. We were SO relieved that amid this crazy winter we had a mostly sunny day with temps in the low 60’s which enabled us to take outdoor photos (and was one less thing to stress over!)”

The ceremony and reception were held at the Mediterranean-inspired Thalassa restaurant.

Jill continues, “The day has so many favorite parts, but one of them was definitely the first look, as well as seeing Teagan and Rylan (the flower girl and ring bearer) in their wedding attire. They looked so cute! Another fun part of the evening was during the Hora. We had stopped it and then re-started it because my parents wanted to also be lifted up in the chairs. Marcus’s parents also joined in the chair-lift fun. One of my friends said to me, ‘That was either the shortest Hora ever or the longest Hora ever, I’m not sure.’

The night went by so quickly and we were so happy to celebrate with our family and friends who came in from all different parts of the country to attend our wedding. It meant so much to us to have them there. We had a great time!””

The beautiful ceremony took place on the Gapstow Bridge.

The ceremony was performed by Crystal’s best friend, Kathryn. Crystal adds, “We have known each other for only four years but it feels like we have known each other all of our lives!  She is so important to Michael and me and we were so thrilled when she agreed to officiate our wedding!”

During the ceremony, Crystal and Michael had a special tribute to their new family; Crystal married Michael and gained two daughters and a son.

Crystal shares, “I have always wanted to have a small wedding in NYC and I love winter! Michael and I got engaged in August, and winter was only a few months away! Planning a wedding in a few months from across the country wasn’t easy but it turned out better than we could have imagined. All of our vendors were amazing.  We got our winter wedding and were married on our 8-year anniversary!

The whole day was absolutely beautiful.  It was supposed to be one of the coldest days of the year but it seemed like the universe was on our side.  The sun was out, the wind had stopped and the weather was perfect.  I was so happy to have both of my parents walk me up the bridge. Seeing Michael for the first time that day was incredible. After 8 years together, I still get butterflies when I see him. Our wedding day was better than any fairytale I could have ever dreamed of!”

Michael adds,  “The most memorable moment was when I saw Crystal walking towards me as I was standing at the top of the bridge.  Everything flowed so naturally, it was magical.”

Jill shares, “When it comes to our wedding style, we really loved the idea of an art deco/1940’s feel for the wedding, but we also wanted it to be simple and personal. We had fun adding the personal touches like my grandma’s gooey butter cake, cocktails named after people we love, and then bringing New York City into the mix by making our own Chuppah. It began hanging over us, and then we attached balloons that turned it into the NYC skyline as our backdrop. Our friends Lloyd and Michael made the design of the Chuppah possible, and Josh and I spent two full Saturdays painting it!”

A beautiful album is like the gorgeous topper on the wedding cake–completing your wedding photography experience. Investing in an album is an important part of the wedding process. Long after the vows have been said and the champagne has been poured, you’ll still have your beautiful wedding photographs to hold and enjoy for a lifetime.

The album can be created with a linen cover or a leather cover. The linen album is a light, textured, animal-friendly option. The linens highlight the true hand-made nature of the books. The leather features 100% natural leathers selected for their grains, texture, strength, and quality with thick pages.

Check out some samples of the Linen album:

I have been married for over 6 years and still get my album out all the time to relive my wedding day. I love it! The photos were carefully selected and tell the story of my day from putting on my dress to  leaving the reception on a horse and carriage in Central Park. I also love sharing it with friends and family, holding the album in my hands and experiencing the photos with loved ones.

Rather than clicking through a Facebook gallery or scrolling through folders on your computer, cherish your memories. Consider having your favorite photos printed in a beautiful album that you can enjoy on every anniversary, something destined to become a family heirloom you’ll pass down for generations.

All books are made with true photographic printing on the finest Fuji crystal archival paper. Pages lay beautifully flat, so you don’t lose any of the image in an unsightly fold. A modern binding and block-building processes are used to bring everything together. All album covers are customized with a laser engraving and come in a canvas case.

Many couples choose to purchase additional  8×8 copies of their album to give to their parents and grandparents. It makes a wonderful gift!
