I loved this stylish Lighthouse Chelsea Piers Wedding in New York City! Andi and Daniel’s wedding was elegant with a twist. The fun-loving couple’s personality and modern flair were incorporated into their wedding. They started their day getting ready separately. While Daniel was with his groomsmen at the Eventi Hotel in NYC; Andi was at home with her bridesmaids, mom, and mother in law. This wedding party really knew how to have a good time. They were relaxed, while still laughing and enjoying each moment leading up to the wedding.
Andi immediately fell in love with her J. Mendel Dress from Mark Ingram Atelier. This dress was sophisticated, yet had a modern flair that made it fashionista worthy. Meanwhile, Daniel wore a dapper custom navy colored suit. The navy and white theme was present throughout the entire day. The bridesmaids and groomsmen also sported navy wedding attire. This was just one detail in the visual storyline that the bride and groom created for their wedding day.
First Look photos were wrought with emotion. The couple was so happy to see each other for the first time during their wedding and Daniel was blown away by how stunning his bride was in her gown. In conclusion, they were both overwhelmed with tears of joy.
The couple had a Catholic wedding mass and ceremony at New York City’s St. Francis Xavier, where the bride was escorted by her father down the aisle holding a bouquet by Elegant Affairs. They exchanged vows and rings in front of family and friends. They beamed with excitement as they exited the church as husband and wife.
One of the best things about being a New York City Wedding Photographer is getting to experience the different venues and the way couple’s make them their own. This couple held their reception at the chic Lighthouse Chelsea Piers Wedding, which was followed by everyone hopping onto the local pier’s carousel for a ride, before hitting the reception.
The bride and groom incorporated elements, such as personalized sunglasses and matchbooks which were spread throughout the venue. Along with those elements, the beauty surrounding the Lighthouse Chelsea Piers Wedding added to the luxurious aesthetic. Guests enjoyed views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty, as well as the NYC skyline. As dinner was served, guests were offered a beautiful meal prepared and catered by Abigail Kirsch Catering before the party. Once the party began, guests danced the night away to Hank Lane’s Luxe Band. The entire room packed the dance floor. Guests of all ages were enjoying the luxe band, but most importantly, Andi and Daniel didn’t stop dancing. They put together a beautiful wedding and reception that really reflected their personality as a couple.
