Mindy & Pablo

Mindy and Pablo’s New York City wedding was a blast to photograph! The day started with Mindy getting ready at Club Quarters Hotel near Times Square. We had a little spare time to hit the streets and shoot some NYC style bridal portraits (see bottom right) before heading to The Church of Our Lady of the Good Counsel for the couple’s nuptial mass. The church’s interior was breathtakingly intricate and truly a site to behold. It provided a perfect backdrop for Mindy and Pablo to pledge their vows to God and to each other. A cool and unique aspect of Mindy and Pablo’s wedding is that they had no wedding party. Instead, their parents stood by them during the ceremony and their siblings were very involved in the mass and throughout the day.

After the ceremony the couple hailed a cab outside the church and we cruised to The Water Club, where we photographed some cool portraits before entering the floating reception aboard the Skyline Princess. Mindy’s parents traveled from Alabama, some of Pablo’s relatives traveled from Argentina, and other guests traveled from all over the country. The resulting mix created a very fun party! Despite the ship rocking back and forth, the dance floor hosted some of the most quality move-busting we’ve ever witnessed at a wedding. We were able to sneak the newlyweds out on the ship’s bow as we passed the Statue of Liberty to shoot a few more portraits to close the day:

We want to extend a HUGE thank you to Mindy’s family for hanging out with us and treating us like family during our stay! It was an unforgettable experience and definitely a great shooting opportunity for us. Mindy and Pablo, we have no doubt that you’re going to live your marriage to the fullest and sincerely wish you the best!
