While You're Away, My Heart Comes Undone... Neshat & Arsam

Neshat & Arsam were married in the mids of February in a truly Persian ceremony at the Penns Landing Hyatt. There was Sofreh (Persian spread complete with mirror, candles, cookies), grinding of the Kalleh Ghand (crystalized cones of sugar) and the couple fed honey to each other. Bjork's song 'Unravel' played at the processional gave me chills, and added such unique touch to the otherwise traditional ceremony. There was no sweeter & more amazing couple this February! They kept gazing at each other with such lovely feeling, that even all the baklava, sugar cones and honey dipped fingers fell short!
I had a pleasure of shooting with David Mielcarek, who captured a number of my fave shots! Here's a selection from both of us:

Warming up the winter months with Lila and Nick!

Winter weddings have this special "cozy" flavor to them. It's just fantastic to have a reception in warm, dimly lit room while it's cold and snowing outside. So was Lila and Nicholas' celebration. Set in picturesque Tarrytown, NY at the Tappan Hill Mansion it was a fabulous "season opener" for us! Monika Broz shot with me and - as always - delivered beautiful coverage. The below selection is a mix of our favorites:

Lila and Nick! It was wonderful to be a part of your day and start our season with the two of you! Thank You so much!
