Our first one of the season. And what spectacular views we’ve got on this one. Manhattan Skyline from Brooklyn side, the Dumbo region. Really love it here. Especially during the twilight.
The title is in French, as you can see, meaning ‘to pray and to party’. It’s from the priest’s ceremony speech right at the beginning of the video. Olivier is from France, as was half of the guests. It is so beautiful to listen to, however I had some challenges translating it for the video. In the process I discover how to add subtitles to the film.

Our last wedding of the year, from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Tiana and Howard started at the Roger Hotel in Manhattan. They had the penthouse on the top with a balcony and view of Empire State Building. it was so cool! We went to take the pictures at the East River State Park in Brooklyn. That’s where we got those great Manhattan skyline shots. Unfortunately it was the windiest wedding we have ever done. Combined with the 40 degree temps, we couldn’t have spent much time there. I keep shivering in a Northface jacket, while Tiana was giving me hard time as she was in a sleeveless wedding dress. (She was right though, I had to man up).
The wedding was so original at the Brooklyn Winery. Just look at those shots we had set up in the cellar with the barrels of wine. I love it so much.

Side note: As we were leaving from Manhattan to Brooklyn, the Uber driver didn’t like the road we wanted to take so he kick us out from his car. Even though we were pleading with him that it’s a wedding day, he didn’t care and we had to get a new Uber. It’s funny now, but Howard (groom) was quite pissed. He kicked the rear bumper of the car as he was taking off.

This was a treat for us, a Kiwi/Italian wedding. Dan is a New Zealander, a.k.a. Kiwi. So half of the people at the wedding had an amazing accent. Although, towards the end of the night, I had hard time understanding some of them. Dan was nice to “translate” it for me.
Amber and Dan picked The Barns at Wesleyan for their wedding, one of our favorites. And if you read our post regularly, you know we are dealing with a string of unfortunate weather. And yes the string continued on this one as well. It’s a really bizarre year. The ceremony had to happen indoor. We had to forgo the beautiful colors outside, as you can see from some other shots. However, the ceremony was still beautiful with all the hanging light bulbs. Really warm and rustic.
Their First Dance was choreographed to a song we have used in a previous wedding (Tyler Williams – All my days). They decided to make it their wedding song, after watching our video. What an honor to have my work influence my couples. Obviously we used it in the video as well and it fits perfectly. If you watch carefully, Dan and Amber are lip syncing the song at one point in the video. And talking about lip syncing, they did every N’sync, Backstreet Boys and Brittany Spears’ song later that night. Even got the exact moves to Bye Bye Bye. Was so much fun.

The weather this year has been very unkind to us. Almost every single wedding we have it rains. We had more rainy weddings this year than 7 previous years combined. However, we always take the given situation and turned it into positive. Erin and Mike had rain most of the day, so we used a cool transparent umbrella, that maybe framed them better, than not having one. Also the sky was cloudy, that created a natural soft-box. The light was very soft, studio like. And I really love the shot through the umbrella with the drops in focus and Erin and Mike out of focus.

From downtown New York City, wedding of Kim and Mark at the Ritz. It’s the end of the Manhattan island, Battery park, where you can see Statute of Liberty form a window. The light in the hotel rooms is just absolutely perfect. Those shots of Kim getting her hair done are just stunning.
The reception was so elegant, very New York, as was their choreographed first dance (Kim is a dancer). I like how we got them dancing in front of the Freedom tower and then blend the shot later to the first dance. It worked out perfectly.

Disclaimer: all the shots form inside the Trinity church are not our footage. We weren’t allowed inside.
