Cindy and David love NYC so after the first look, we headed over to City Hall Park for some bride and groom photos. After that we wandered around the area exploring interesting spaces. Their chemistry is so undeniable and their love so evident… *sigh* I have the best couples…. really!

:Wedding: Meet Cindy + David Chapter I

undefinedLove is clearly in the air on this beautiful summer day in NYC! You may recognize Cindy and David from their fabulous Hoboken train station engagement session a while back. The equally fab and in love couple tied the knot at New York’s St. Peter’s Church.  They invited  their closest friends and family to witness their union, some of who came from Alabama, Colombia and even all the way from Japan! This international affair was just as I expected from Cindy and David…. filled with beautifully thought out and stylish details and so much fun! I so specially adored her dress and shoes and David’s Converse All-Stars were super cute and fun. As I had so much trouble picking out my favorites, I will be breaking this post into two love chapters. Thanks so much to the wonderful couple, Cindy and David for allowing us to be a part of your special day. Michael and I wish you two nothing but continued happiness and much laughter in your future. ^.^ undefinedundefinedCindy and David prepared for their big day at the gorgeously modern Millenium Hilton HotelundefinedJust like any other girl, I am such a fan of Swarovski and I seriously could not stop drooling over her bow detail Badgley MischkasundefinedundefinedThis cute paper bouquet of flowers was a gift from Cindy’s relatives in Japan who were not able to make it to the wedding. They scribbled all their good wishes for our couple on the back of the each flower. What a sweet and thoughtful gesture!undefinedundefinedEven guys pore over style decisions…. I like the black one Dave. ^.^undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedDavid looks so handsome in his suit!undefinedundefinedundefined:gush: Look at the beautiful bride!!

And what is a movie-themed picnic without some buttery popcorn?? Here are the images from our afternoon with the adorably cute couple!
