Real wedding: Heather + Russ

Jennifer MacFarlane photography 4

Cool can’t even begin to describe this wedding that photographer Jennifer MacFarlane sent over last week…all tradition was thrown out the door for a totally unique event!  I’ll let her tell you more…

The vendors were all friends and friends of the family. Russ is a photographer from Staten Island and Heather is a dancer from Queens. The ceremony and receptions took place at the NYC Fire Museum.

Another highlight, which you can see in the photos, is when Russ broke the glass and brought the whole chupah down on the officiant….which made for one of the funniest photos of my career!
The highlight of the night was Russ and Heathers 1st dance which started with a choreographed dance to “I had the time of my life” from Dirty Dancing, mid song the record scratched and to the reggae dancehall favorite “Lyrical Gangsta” then to Heavy D’s “Now that we’ve found love”.  Each second the dance moves getting saucier and sillier…which set a precedent for the rest of the night!

Real wedding: Lauren + Darryl

When Stacey Ilyse sent me this wedding a few weeks ago, I totally feel in love with Lauren’s dress and the low-key feeling surrounding the day…I’ll let Stacey tell you the rest.

They are both very low key, quiet people who really just wanted an evening of spending time with their closest family and friends.   There was no bridal party, Lauren got ready at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, and had her sister, 2 of her closest girlfriends “the unofficial bridesmaids” with her, one of whom did her makeup, and her long time hair stylist spend the morning with her getting ready.

The car service that was hired for the day never made it to the hotel, so we just all jumped in a cab and made our way uptown for the ceremony… following the ceremony Lauren and Darryl loved the idea of the NYC cab, so we took one back downtown to Tribeca, to The Harrison, where they had approx 70 guests,  for a lovely night of eating amazing food and dancing.

The best part about having their reception downtown was getting to take advantage of the amazing Tribeca hardscape, with all the cobblestone, and graffiti alleys we found.
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Dress: Amsale – very cool dress that turned into a short cocktail looking dress as well just by taking apart the skirt.
Make up: best friend
Getting ready: Tribeca Grand Hotel
Photographer:  Stacey Ilyse Photography
Location: The Harrison, Tribeca NYC
Ceremony:  UWS
Flowers: simple bouquet of peonies as well as 1 peony for her hair as well.  And on the tables.

Normally on my birthday I like to do the ole annual survey, but since we did that already, I figured a fabulous real wedding is even better, so enjoy!  Ahh, the joys of seeing a modern Montreal wedding…my cousin Sheila got married at this same venue, so I can attest to how cool it is.  Jordan gives the details below…[come back at 1pm for the MSW ticket winners!]
