Insert happy, teary-eyed, heart-eyes emoji for this one. My incredible 2018 wedding season officially ended with Elisa and Neal tying the knot at The Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY. Don’t worry, I still have one amazing couple and wedding to blog before the end of the year (yes, I am talking about Jane and Chris!). Elisa and Neal are a couple near and dear to my heart, as they wanted to make every single loved one in attendance feel just as important as the person next to them. They opted out of a traditional bridal party and opted in for extended bride and groom portraits and family portraits. After meeting many of Elisa and Neal’s loved ones, I saw how difficult it would have been to have selected a “small” bridal party. I could tell how much every single person in attendance meant to Elisa and Neal. They made their day just as much about the guests as they did the celebration of their marriage. I love how they invited some dear friends to stand with the hand-held Chuppah decorated with Neal’s grandfather’s Tallis. Just one of the many “close to home” details they incorporated. The Hora and schtick resulted in some of my favorite images from the evening.
I know Elisa and Neal are somewhere very warm and filled with the bluest waters only my dreams can produce. I hope they are enjoying your first few weeks as a Mr. and Mrs. and that these images make you smile just as much as they do for me. Thank you to Elisa and Neal for inviting me to document the most perfect November day. Your day. For MANY years to come.
