I’ve been SO excited to share this wedding with you! Remember this engaged couple from last August? Well, about a month ago, they officially became husband + wife and I got to be there to capture it. Not only are these two individuals super rad and totally in love, but I have the honor of considering them to be friends of mine and being a part of their wedding day was something I’ll forever be grateful for!
Curtis (CJ) + Melanie wed in a beautiful celebration on the coast of the Long Island Sound, just north of Manhattan in New York. An intimate gathering of friends + family surrounded them as they said their vows overlooking the water and danced all evening in the Coveleigh Club. CJ + Mel have been together for over 7 years and it was obvious that these two adore each other and were so excited and ready to finally become husband + wife. I loved watching them soak in every moment of the day – laughing, crying, getting nervous and letting loose. As we finished dancing and sent the newlyweds off on a private boat, I couldn’t help but smile and revel in the days’ events – with a full and happy heart.
I had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors for this wedding – Fatima from NVS Events was a rockstar and left no detail unnoticed all day. Mel’s hair was styled by Stephanie Brioso and her make-up was flawlessly applied by Lindsay Gallagher. The Potted Geranium did a fantastic job with the bouquets and floral arrangements. Lulu Cake Boutique baked up a delicious wedding cake and the reception wouldn’t have been complete with the amazing talent of Rich Bascomb and Phase One band.
CJ + Mel – THANK-YOU from the bottom of my heart for trusting me to tell your wedding story. Thank-you for giving your loved one’s an excuse to hang in New York for a few days, for throwing an awesome party + being super fun and most of all, for loving each other in a way that’s evident to everyone around you! I wish you both nothing but the best as you start this new chapter together!
