Justin & Sarah Jane's NYC Wedding

I had a busy week starting on Memorial Day with Justin & Sarah Jane's amazing wedding at Studio 450 in NYC.  It was a hot day in New York but it didn't stop us from enjoying this adorable couple pledge their love on the rooftop with the Empire State Building looming in the background.

Sarah Jane's an actress, but she didn't have to act the part of a beautiful bride - she just was ...  She entered the ceremony on the freight elevator which created a dramatic entrance and a direct aisle view of her groom as Eric & Whitney Damewood sang the moving Hallelujah chorus of the song "Love Came Through".

The ceremony culminated with their first kiss which was delayed by the Officiant, JR Vassar, with lighthearted joking and much laughter.  Yes, it was their first kiss!

After a few photos and some beer and wine on the rooftop we moved the party downstairs.  The guests were treated to dinner featuring Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets and sliders and french fries from New York Burger.

My Broadway bride was definitely into DIY projects and made everything herself including mercury glass votive holders, candy and cake stands and "escort" cards on lemon sugar sticks.  Everything was a beautiful collage of silver, white and pale yellow.

The best part of the day, though, was the "Flash" mob First Dance to the Hanson song "Give A Little"!  The bride choregraphed the dance and the group rehearsed a few times.  It was incredibly fun.

It was a blessed and awesome day for this very special couple that I am honored to call friends!
