This downtown wedding was full of beauty, elegance, joy, and laughter. I loved taking the train up to NYC in August to photograph Juliette & Steven's Lotte New York Palace wedding in Manhattan, and I especially loved celebrating alongside all of Juliette & Steven's friends and family.
These two began preparations at The Lotte Palace, then Juliette hopped in a vintage car to head to St. Catherine of Siena Church for their wedding ceremony. Afterward we took portraits around The Lotte Palace, enjoyed a wonderful brass band and cocktails, then everyone paraded around the Palace's courtyard for the second line...it was so memorable! Juliette grew up in New Orleans so it was very fitting to include this tradition. The reception was full of delicious food, heartfelt toasts, and wonderful dancing.
Juliette looked perfect and classic in her lace Yvonne LaFleur gown (...those sleeves!), Lovella Salon did a great job on hair and makeup, the florals by Felix Perea and the food and cake by Lotte New York Palace were gorgeous, and Danielle over at NYC Classic Events made everything run so smoothly. This elegant and classic New York wedding is certainly one of my favorites...!
