Camille and Jim's Wedding in NYC!

Monday, December 20, 2010 - Weddings
November 6th we traveled to NYC for Camille and Jim's wedding (you have to remember their engagement session from October). What a day! Camille had the best details - so much lime green, she was after our hearts! (Ya know that's a favorite Wiebner color.) Her mom also made sooo much for the wedding! She is a seamstress and made Camille's dress, the bridesmaids dresses, her own dress, napkins for the reception, pillowcases for Jim & Camille's wedding night....the list goes on! I am sure she made other things but I just can't remember them all. Camille really put a lot of thought into all of the colors tying into the wedding, even down to the lime green Moleskin journals for the guests favors! I really loved those.

The big day started out at the Gild Hall Hotel, where everyone got ready and the big "first look" happened. After we did a few shots at the hotel, it was time to hit the streets for our walking tour around the city! (Ok, we didn't cover ALL of Manhattan, that would be just ridiculous, but we did put a lot of pavement behind us that day.) We did some cool shots in the streets, played on the park benches at City Hall park, then headed down to the piers for a good view of the Brooklyn Bridge (Jim loves bridges!). We were then steps away from our ceremony/reception location of Bridgewaters. We had actually worked there a year ago, in fall of 2009. It's a great venue! And since I am on vendors, let me mention the other great ones we worked with:

Videographer - Dave Williams from Cinema Cake in Philadelphia
Cake (or should I say cupcakes!) - Sweet Sisters Cakes
Florist/Event Design - Shawn Rabideau

The ceremony was a candlelit ceremony, followed by a reception overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge (Bridgewaters has spectacular views!). We couldn't have asked for a better day! Congrats you guys!

Camille had the BEST green shoes!
Pillowcases made by Camille's mom, made for a perfect backdrop for a ring shot.
Even the groomsmen were sportin' the green.
First look!
Now, how to get to the park...
Oh these two! I loved this whole series.
Yep, who else would stand their bride and groom in a pile of garbage on the sidewalk in an alley like this? (Ok, I actually know a lot of photographers that would, but it's not always easy to get your bride and groom to agree. Camille and Jim were totally willing!) And for those of you who say, "standing in garbage? really?" Isn't that light spectacular!?
And here, oh yeah...still standing in the garbage...
Same alleyway, it was pretty rad.
Cell phone photo mania!
A photographer shooting the cell phone photographer being shot by the videographer. Ok, that made my head hurt.
Looking at those nice boys helping the girls down from the benches!
Oh yeah, Camille's mom made the girls shawls too!
Jim got stuck on the other side of the street with Camille's bouquet. hehe.
And he made it!
Love this one. Love it.
Sweet journals!
Matchboxes await for ringbearers! Yes!
Journals - Mobbed!
Love this room.
Oh this was one horah that Jim was NOT ready for...
...whoa boy!
What wedding is complete without a photobooth?
