Liberty House Restaurant Wedding – The Indian wedding of Monica and Mahesh

Update: I’m excited to say that South Asian Bride Magazine featured this as one of their Real Weddings. Check it out HERE.

I love photographing Indian weddings and was super excited when I was hired to cover the beautiful wedding this past Labor Day of Monica and Mahesh. They got married at Liberty House Restaurant (just through the tunnel into New Jersey with a great view of downtown Manhattan) which provided the perfect backdrop for a warm, sun filled late summer wedding.

Mahesh took a ferry from Manhattan to the Liberty House and began the traditional Indian wedding processional before the ceremony. I love photographing Indian wedding ceremonies as they have such beautiful details and traditions..when Monica came down the aisle, looking just lovely,  you could just feel how excited everyone was for them.

They were surrounded by beautiful friends and relatives. Everyone was smiling, laughing, and having a good time. From the adorable children to the spirited dancing and speeches, to the intricate  details in the Indian clothing.. I think we caught some amazing wedding photographs through the day.

And check out this slideshow I just put together.

Enjoy the photos!

Beautiful Brooklyn Wedding – Dorick and Lauren

This was the summer of cool Brooklyn Weddings for me, and a perfect example of this was the awesome Brooklyn couple Dorick and Lauren. How could you go wrong with this wedding having your rehearsal dinner at Frankies 457 and then your reception the following day in DUMBO at Superfine. I love my Brooklyn weddings and this one was awesome.

There were musical performances by several talented family members (including the bride singing a beautiful song!) and basically just a long day of good looking people drinking specialty cocktails, enjoying local desserts and partying till late into the evening. You know a couple is going to be cool when they tell you that they’re going to Iceland for their honeymoon..I really liked that.

Dorick and Lauren had a small ceremony at city hall the day before their wedding and then they hired me to capture the rehearsal dinner and reception the following day. We made sure to get some awesome shots of the two of them over the course of the weekend, getting some of my best Brooklyn wedding photos to date.
