Love how Nicole describes the style of their wedding: In so many ways our wedding was a love letter to New York City. Being such lovers of great food & wine, they knew the majority of their budget was going to be put towards serving up something special. The bites at Locanda Verde are so top notch and the atomosphere the perfect balance of elegance and warmth, that it served as the absolute wedding venue for them. Plus, they had their talented friend & photographer, Heather Waraksa capturing every NYC moment.
Our favorite moment from the day was the hour that we spend before the ceremony. We spent it roaming the streets of NYC and having our dear and talented friend, Heather photograph us.
Nicole walked down the aisle to Philip Glass, “Knee play 5” from Einstein on the beach played by Noah Hoffeld on the cello. And their first dance song was Ella Fitzgerald’s rendition of “Manhattan”.
