Just stop. This is one to let load. Full of eye candy, an omfg gorgeous, glam couple, that is…Courtney and John.
To top it all off there is this crazy insane backdrop, the Great Lawn in Bryant Park and the skyscrapers of Sixth Avenue, ever heard of Bryant Park?
If not, get in the game. Courtney is in the fashion industry, what would be a more fitting location for this bride than Fashion Week’s original home at Bryant Park? It is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and between 40th and 42nd Streets in Midtown Manhattan and the main building of the New York Public Library is located within the park, which we visited too obviously…AT NIGHT.
Here’s some favorites of mine from the day. Courtney makes Sixth Avenue look really good.
And Eric shot the hottest groom portrait of the year, so far, online I’ve heard great feedback…”Clooney, GQ, James Bond, Armani”. Check, check, check, check. All good things, right?
Courtney and John were so gracious to take some time from their reception to shoot some portraits with us in the park. And let me tell you…we could have shot these two ALL night long. It was so fun, they are adorably in love and besides having to clone out a homeless person and a light stand – this next shot at the New York Public Library is a complete #WIN.
So let’s get ready at The Bryant Park Hotel.
Shoes by Sergio Rossi, yum sauce.
I used to tip toe around the fact that my sister, Stacey of Blush Couture, was family as well as the most killer makeup artist on the planet. But now, I don’t give a ****, I am proud and I am bragging that she is my family. My one and only Little Sis. This makeup look that she created for Courtney was mind-blowing. Complete perfection. Courtney looked just as amazing at midnight as she did at noon, and do you even know how hard it is to create Cat Eye Liner as perfect as this?
Eric left to shoot the guys, and lucky me got to stay and play with all the girls at the sexy, sleek, modern Bryant Park Hotel.
And who doesn’t love a little Raw Photo Design boudoir wedding day gift?! clearly, John did.
I always try really hard to maintain my composure on the job, but gimme a break.
It’s a wedding.
And I’m a girl.
So if I have to wipe my tears from behind my camera for moments like this, then so be it.
Me and Stacey were offering Eric some assistance checking the lights in the elevator before Courtney met up with us, I love how me and Stacey took two different extremes for our on the spot expression, kinda sums us up. I look like such a bitch, lol. But, then Courtney comes along, and nails this shot in .2 seconds.
So, Courtney and John’s ceremony was planned for the rooftop of the Bryant Park Grill…there was a passing shower that prevented it from happening there – and the back up location was the tent in Bryant Park at The Bryant Park Grill. Not gonna lie, Courtney was bummed.
I however, loved the romance of the whole scene.
Rain tapping on the tent…it was all very Woody Allen movie.
It was perfection.
The gorgeous wedding details.
Best part of this shot, we snuck the girls into a private party for a quick shot at The Cellar Bar in The Bryant Park Hotel. Epic.
So, I wish I knew what the heck I am saying to these two. But I look like I am all business…
Whatever it was…it made this happen:
Love you guys! Thanks for being so amazing. xo.Posted under weddings
