Marla & Lisa planned their wedding to take place on a Saturday night during Channukah in the hip and cozy atmosphere of Brooklyn Winery, which was one of my favorite venues I shot at this year! I was blown away by the style and sophistication of their fabulous winter wedding. From the understated elegance of their dresses to the mismatched vintage china and antique silver serving pieces, this evening was a delight through and through. I arrived early to scout the indoors for portrait spots and was excited to take them back in the 'barrel room' and shoot amidst the Winery's production area. You guys have gotta check this place out if you're in the area. Great place for wine and cheese, no doubt! Then we did a quick set of small group pictures before the couple signed their Ketubah with Rabbi Diana Miller-- whom I knew I had worked with before and sure enough she also officiated for Rebecca & Julie a few years ago! Guests were ushered into a beautiful ceremony space (later converted into a reception room) with a simply gorgeous Chuppah of white orchids and the Rabbi performed a candle lighting for Channukah before the processional began with a piano performance by Emily Golden. I was deeply moved to see Lisa escorted down the aisle by Marla's parents-- they shared a beautiful moment at the Chuppah and went back to escort Marla down the aisle as well. Some of my favorite photos of the night were of her parents on the dance floor-- look for them in the slideshow and you'll know immediately what an amazing couple this is! After a moving Jewish ceremony and a cocktail hour full of hugs and laughter the party was brought back into the main space to sit at long wooden tables and feast. There was a stadium-style wave happening at the longest table-- these guys were having a blast. After dinner the party was moved back into the bar room for dancing and drinks. I couldn't have been more honored to capture this fantastic evening for these wonderful women. Congratulations to Marla & Lisa!!!
