When Kayla and Chris asked me to photographer their New York City Wedding, I was beside myself and couldn’t wait!
Kayla and Chris first met in July 2009 at The Horseshoe Bar in Glasgow, Scotland while Kayla was visiting a friend. A few pints and a train ride later, they were smitten. Assuming that it would be CRAZY to date long distance, Kayla returned to New York, only to compare all of her dates from then on to Chris.
Fast forward to December 2010 when the pair met again in New York City for their friends wedding. Even through Chris was incredibly nervous; they picked up immediately where they left off as if no time had passed. Chris told Kayla that he had forgotten how funny she is (which she obviously LOVED) and Kayla told Chris that she had never liked someone so much. Chris popped the question and I here I was on my way to the big apple.
Kayla did her preparations at the Renaissance Hotel and Chris did his at their apartment in NYC. The dress was a one-shoulder made entirely of Ivory Silk by Amsale. She had the hem raised in the front to show off her blue suede MANOLO BLAHNIK pumps.
The wedding ceremony & reception was held at TOM COLICCHIO’S RIVERPARK Restaurant. The restaurant is famous for sourcing all their veggies, spices, etc. from their micro-farm in Manhattan right next to the restaurant. The wedding was a Brunch sit-down!
The couple photos were done at 4pm after the reception around the Riverpark Hotel and Renaissance Hotel with their 17th floor Hotel room overlooking the iconic Chrysler Building.
