Jeffrey proposed out of the blue to Briana over pizza and some vintage champagne.. after she said yes, Jeffrey had a town car waiting for her to whisk her away to France for a winery tour. What a wonderful way to start their story.
I met Jeffrey a few years ago through the restaurant scene in New York City while he was the GM at a restaurant named Scarpetta.. we had a good time hanging out during a few photo sessions and when he told me he was getting married and wanted me to photograph his wedding I was honored.
The entire day was awesome from their Central Park ceremony to being whisked away in a vintage NYC cab to the foodie lovers paradise of a wedding reception at the The Stanard Hotel (formerly known as the Cooper Square Hote). Negroni’s to drink, a stacked raw bar bursting with oysters and shrimp, and suckling pigs or “porchetta” as they’re called. There was a jazz trio during the cocktail hour and then some lively dancing out on the rooftop deck overlooking Manhattan, late into the night. Besides being filled with great food and drink, the room had so much happiness and love at this wedding. Thanks to Bonnie Burke for coming through with her excellent second photographer duties.
Thank you to the lovely Briana and dapper Jeffrey for having me photograph their special day, it was a total pleasure. Now onto the images from this perfect day.
