When one of the best planners in the business reaches out to you, to photograph her Sun West Studios wedding in New York City, you run at the chance. Kim, (whose beautiful Crystal Cove engagement we photographed in California) is one of the most talented planners around, with offices in Quebec City, Montreal and New York (check out her work here). She plans stunning, lavish events for her clients, but for her own day, she had a completely unique idea. Why not host her wedding in her new home, New York City and go straight from sunset ceremony to epic dance party?
The details are as elegant as the bride. A column-sheath style Burberry gown, paired with the sweetest pink satin Louboutins – and a handsome tuxedo for her groom. A wedding planners own celebration would make it seem that details were of the utmost importance, but Kim and Will kept it real. There were so many beautiful emotional moments, so much family at their side, so many friends coming down to the Big Apple from all corners of the world.
We started with a first look in Central Park and managed to sneak in a portrait session before the rains came in. Jumping from rickshaw to taxi, we just missed a rainfall and headed all the way downtown to Sun West Studios for the wedding celebration. They spent the whole day together, but no tears were spared during the ceremony. We loved getting to know these two over the year, and are so happy to call them friends.
