Juwita and Mike had a really beautiful, yet super low-key boho wedding at Maison-May Dekalb, in Brooklyn. They managed to organize the whole affair in a few months, without a wedding planner, to keep things as personal as possible. The couple wanted the wedding to look like them and incorporated elements that reflected their personalities and little quirks: they used carnation as the sole flower throughout the reception and ceremony space (Juwita loves how underrated they are), they got ready together at their apartment with their cats, they talked about zombies in their vows… Juwita and Mike stayed true to themselves during their wedding day, and I am sure it was so lovely, for their family and friends who know them so well, to see them unite their lives forever in such simplicity and truth. It was a real testimony of love between those two, and I can see nothing but greatness in their future. Juwita and Mike moved me with their love, and how they managed to create such a beautiful and perfect day without make a big show of it. Congrats to them both!!

Alyssa and Sean had booked me for their Brooklyn wedding in February 2018. Little did I know I would end up witnessing and shooting their vows during a sweet, impromptu Spring elopement in Battlefield State Park in June 2017 with 20 guests.
Since I myself eloped last minute with my husband, I understand Alyssa and Sean’s impatience to make it all official as soon as possible. Their love was so palpable; they spent the day kissing and holding on to each other so tight. Everyone was sniffing during the ceremony, Alyssa and Sean included.
Big weddings are beautiful and a lot of fun as well, but not everyone is cut out for them. Some people are happy with simple celebrations, and some people just can’t wait to be married. I was one of those people, and Alyssa and Sean were too. I am so happy they made the right choice for them, and I know they won’t regret it. The day was perfect.
Congrats Alyssa and Sean!
