The sun shimmered off the buildings on 59th street, shooting tiny sparkles off the taxis passing by on the streets below. Zara and her girls were many stories above, laughing together as they watched the couple’s adorable maltipoo Chewy run around in his tux. It was the perfect day for a classic NYC wedding. When it came time for the first look, Bennett made his way across the street to Central Park, excited to see his gorgeous bride for the first time. A huge smile spread across his face as she walked up and threw her arms around him. Zara had been anticipating this moment for a long time, and all she could think about was how excited she was to marry the man she loved.
These two made their vows under a truly beautiful chuppah, promising to stand by one another all the days of their lives! Right after the breaking of the glass and the first kiss, Bennett took Zara’s hand and ran with her down the aisle. It was an incredible moment, and one of my favorites of the day! An awesome band, delicious dinner served on ornate china, and plenty of dancing followed as Zara and Bennett celebrated the blending of their families into one. Their classic NYC wedding at the Essex House was truly unforgettable, and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it! Enjoy reliving a few of my favorite moments below.
