It was a cold, wet, mild but fairly intense rain storm the day these two got married. For their ceremony, we’d planned it outside, on the water, overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. Romantic, right? Well, if you think that’s romantic, let me tell you what really happened. It rained. It poured, and the spot on the water was less discernible given there was water everywhere …. So we posted up under an underpass. Their under 60 guest count huddled together for warmth (and so they could hear each other --- we were under a highway and in the middle of NYC] and they had the most intimate ceremony of all. A moment before --- they looked at me and said, you know, we planned to walk down alone but I just think that we need to walk down together. It’s like this rain storm was one big metaphor of all the storms these two had weathered together and it didn’t make any sense not to hold hands through this --- as they had all the other storms.
This romanticism warmed us all up and their friend officiant also brought some fun laughs. We all then hopped into taxis and to the reception venue [indoors, don’t worry!]. DISH brought the eats to compliment a piano band and fancy vintage furniture. It was an intimate night and one in which you realized these two are truly celebrated. And hey, sometimes the vision you have for something doesn’t pan out --- it rains and you’ve gotta duck for cover. If it’s all about who you’re with when that happens [like it was for Amanda and Geovanni], I think you’ll be just fine.
