The day of Michael's proposal to Melissa was much like their wedding day. While walking through Central Park Mike kept insisting he wanted to take a boat out into the pond. However, they had closed the boats due to pouring rain, so after waiting for some time in the rain, Mike suddenly dropped to one knee and proposed in front of Bow Bridge. The day of their wedding the rains didn't stop either, and although we had all planned for portraits outdoors and cocktails and a reception on the rooftop at 620 Loft & Garden, Melissa & Michael, and all of their guests, enjoyed a day filled with joy and were energized by their five nieces and nephews who played a big part in the wedding day.

As a storm swirled throughout Manhattan, Melissa, her sister and niece were tranquil and happy in the moment.

On their way to the cathedral, the Deacons were preparing for the ceremony in the underchamber. I captured this view from the couple's reception venue just across Fifth Avenue.

Those moments between father and daughter just before the walk down the aisle are always some of the most poignant.

The Deacon that married them is also the groom's father (in the center)!

The Lady Chapel just behind the main altar of St. Patrick's Cathedral has complete privacy from the many international travelers sightseeing.

Capturing each tradition of the full mass was very important to the couple

Perhaps my favorite moment of the day. When the granddaughter of the groom's father blew him a kiss while he was speaking, he smiled at her and told everyone present how much that meant to him. I was so happy that I was vigilant enough to capture this moment as it happened.

She looked like an ancient Greek sculpture while removing her veil.

As they crossed Fifth Avenue to go to their reception at 620 Loft & Garden, an older married couple passed by, beaming with happiness.

The rains didn't keep them off the lawn. You can see St. Patrick's Cathedral from the view East at 620 Loft & Garden and to the West, Rockefeller Center.

Their wedding reception was very informal and free flowing without any formal entrance or dances. Food was butlered around tables where guests were invited to sit where they preferred. Petal to the People created small vases of colorful, seasonal spring blooms scattered throughout for a bright, cheery look!

The kids didn't mind the rain, to them, it was a magical garden!

Another one of my favorite moments, when one of the bride's nieces picked a rose for the bride to decorate her hair. I love the expression on her face!

The rain continued, yet the couple asked for a super quick night shot, and I was happy to oblige!

A bit of dancing to close out the evening and some special bourbon for the guests to take home.

The views to 51st Street and also from 51st Street up to the loft were extra atmospheric when the fog rolled in after the rains.
