One of the common things that we hear from couples after their wedding day, is that if they could ever do it again – they’d do it smaller. Smaller guest lists, smaller bridal party, smaller….everything. It goes without saying, smaller weddings are generally more stress-free and relatively more manageable (this is coming from someone who had 800+ people on the original draft of his wedding guest list). Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of documenting weddings of all shapes and sizes, but the core of it has always been the same: two fated individuals who wish to spend the rest of their days together. In this particular story, Bianca & Phil woke up one day, and realized this whole wedding planning thing was for the birds. And who was I to convince them otherwise? :) Their NYC City Hall wedding day started unassumingly at the gorgeous Ludlow Hotel in the Lower East Side.

When Nina & Danny first met each other 11 years ago, they never dreamt that they had found “the one” – but here they were, standing across from one another at St. Lucy’s Church in Newark, NJ on a beautiful spring day, ready to take on the next chapter of their lives together. While their wedding day offered all sorts of fine details that make a typical wedding wonderful, our favorite part of the day were the cast of characters who helped make their day a memorable one. It’s not everyday we get to see a groomsmen running around in his undergarments, totally asking to be photographed (a request which we were all too happy to oblige). While those will likely remain in Nina & Danny’s private collection for many years to come (or not), we’re thrilled to share a sneak peak of their wedding at the one and only Westmount Country Club!
