“Darling, you are all I ever wanted to love to be.”e.s.
There’s something so peaceful about the city in the morning. Before the hustle and the bustle and the tourists come out, there is this quiet stillness that often on wedding days we don’t get to take advantage of. This is one reason I LOVE lunch weddings. On this day, I met Jordan and his guys at Washington square, early enough to embrace that stillness. It was a gorgeous Spring morning. The sky was blue and the sun was shining.
Shortly after, Tina arrived. Radiant from head to toe, anxious to see her groom. The two shared their first look in front of the historic Second Bank of the United States.
We continued the morning with the bridesmaids and groomsmen and plenty of couple pictures. It was then time to head to the main event. The Ketubah signing took place just before the ceremony. I absolutely love the Jewish heritage, especially when it comes to weddings. The rituals and traditions hold such power and the cultural roots brings the greatest perspective on the gravity of the commitment being made.
While Jordan comes from the Jewish background, Tina’s roots are Persian, and the ceremony was the most wonderful blend of the two.
The rest of the afternoon was spent celebrating in the gorgeous Arts Ballroom. Heartfelt speeches from the parents, maid of honor and best man, plenty of delicious cuisine and a whole lot of dancing.
What a magical day it was. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Cohen!
