Stephanie & Steve’s Manhattan Wedding!

We could not have asked for a more beautiful day for Stephanie & Steve’s wedding which took place on the rooftop at Midtown Loft & Terrace. There was not a cloud in the sky and the temperature was perfect for an August day in New York City.

One of my favorite moments before a wedding ceremony begins is getting the bride ready to walk down the aisle. I love being part of that special moment before she says “I do” as I walk behind her, carrying her train. I’m the last person to see her face full of anticipation before the processional music begins, and I’m the last one to hug and congratulate her, other than her father, before she becomes “Mrs”. I can’t help but be overcome with emotion.

The style of the wedding was classic vintage and being that the bride thrives in creative concepts, she did a lot of DIY, even making her own flower bouquets for the bridesmaids and centerpieces. The bouquet she carried was made of antique brooches, including one from her mother on the stem of the bouquet.

During the speeches the bride had a special surprise for the groom – a flash mob she had organized with their friends singing “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. He was definitely surprised and it was so moving to see the love surrounding them and radiating throughout the room.

It was another successful wedding for Karen Brown New York and as always, I feel honored when couples trust me to take care of all the details on their special day!
