Jon & Roger planned an elegant NYC wedding this past fall. It all took place at the very chic Plaza Athenee. I love this intimate hotel for a wedding. It has all the elements you need for that classic New York City vibe, but on a smaller scale. Their listing on Pridezilla details wedding packages and they can acommadate between 10 – 80 guests. Another great feature of this venue is its upper east side location among beautiful brownstones and Central Park. This is a treat for me, as you can see the great backdrops we had for photos. So many gorgeous spots are a short walk away and it adds to the wedding day fun. Mary Cawley is the very gracious and helpful contact person at the hotel. She helped the couple find their florist Diane Wagner of Surroundings Flowers, and me the photographer. I also must include a shout out to their officiant, Barbara Ann Michaels the Jester of the Peace, and last but not least, Rita of Maridadi Couture. Jon’s jacket was custom made and was an amazing touch.
It was my premier as a photographer of gay weddings. Thank you Jon & Roger, You’ll always be my first.
