There are so many beautiful moments during a wedding, but the ones that take place in the morning are some of my favorites. It was August 20th, Jen and Dan’s wedding day! As I arrived to the Lotte New York Palace, a quick summer shower made its way across Manhattan. The pitter-patter created a gentle hum throughout the bridal suite, the drops clinging to the windows and glistening in the sun. Jen look absolutely beautiful, even before she slipped on her Mira Zwillinger gown! She spent the morning sipping on champagne, chatting with her bridesmaids, and showering her adorable nieces with gifts. Dan and his groomsmen relaxed a few floor away, popping champagne as Dan handed out the gifts he had custom made for them. It was the perfect start to what turned out to be an absolutely amazing day.
After an emotional first look on the roof of the New York Palace, Jen and Dan were married in front of their family and friends! Cheers rang out as Dan expertly twirled Jen around the dance floor and the laughter was practically uncontrollable during the toasts. The band kept guests dancing all night, with short breaks to enjoy a delicious dinner and the ever famous Ron Ben-Israel cake! The detailing on it even matched Jen’s dress! Tate’s cookies made for the perfect sweet treat at the end of the evening.
Jen and Dan, thank you for including me in your incredible wedding at the Lotte New York Palace! It is easy to see how deeply you care for one another, and capturing your love story has brought me so much joy.
