Jennifer + Dario Aqua Azul Wedding // New York, New York
I joyfully captured the lovely nuptials of Jennifer and Dario. In a truly heartfelt ceremony overlooking the Hudson River, Jen and Dario tied the knot in what was a day full of laughter, happy tears, and lots of sports anecdotes, as one would expect when two sports anchors say “I do.”
Jen and Dario got ready at the trendy boutique hotel, Dream Hotel, in downtown New York in the Chelsea Market area. This modern hotel provided a stunning backdrop to their elegant style. And speaking of elegant style, Jen’s dress and shoes were to die for – one of my absolute favorites from this wedding season!
I photographed their first look on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, and then captured some bridal portraits on the High Line, a popular, elevated linear park and greenway on the west side of Manhattan, about 30 feet above street level on an old rail line, with provided fantastic city and river views.
Jen and Dario’s wedding ceremony and reception took place on a spectacular yacht which sailed around Manhattan. The views were striking! As Jen walked down the aisle, she became overwhelmed with emotion, and I found myself crying tears of joy along with her family and friends. When Chase, her son, gave a reading during the ceremony, I quickly realized that moment would be engrained in the couple’s hearts forever. Jen and Dario’s special day was so heartfelt and emotional!
As the Aqua Azul Yacht sailed around the Manhattan Island, I was able to capture the most incredible moments – laughter and tears from guests, sweet looks exchanged between Jen and Dario, and an extra cute moment when Jen brought Chase to the dance floor… but he quickly ditched his mom to dance with the flower girl. Such a sweet, hilarious moment.
Jen and Dario, I feel so honored and incredibly grateful to have captured your New York wedding! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness as husband and wife.
