Shelley + Sahar

The Loeb Boathouse

What an honor it was to capture such a close friend’s wedding, and lucky! These two beauties had a day of their own making. From the engagement ring that Sahar literally made for Shelley (like, welded and made) to Shelley’s insanely cool and beautiful blue feathered dress….I mean COME ON! It was a uniquely New York event starting with getting ready in the suites of the Loews Regency to ceremony and reception at the iconic Loeb Boathouse in Central Park designed to the 9s by James Abel Events. The weather allowed for an epic stroll through Central Park to Bethesda Fountain and The Pond. The party was led by the talented Jerry Kravat Orchestras band and I was lucky enough to set my camera down to have a cocktail - or two - and dance with some dear old friends. And to top it off, they surprised their guests at the end of the evening with a gelato cart with custom labeled Nutella, sooo sweet!
