Lauren & Josh’s epic winter wedding at The Knockdown Center, NYC
Josh & Lauren were married on a beautiful snowy Saturday in December. We began the day at The Williamsburg Hotel, in Brooklyn. Lauren’s room had amazing floor to ceiling windows letting in lovely natural light, which worked so well with her details and dress! I had scoped out the lobby and to our delight the ground level of the hotel was full of nifty spots to take pictures of the couple after their first look. Josh waited to see Lauren so she could do up his bowtie and that made for a sweet moment, too! I was able to take them outside under our big clear umbrella for a few magical shots with the snowflakes wafting around– it was the first snow of this winter here in NYC so naturally I wanted to capture that for them! We did some group shots with the bridesmaids and groomsmen and family groups that were there at the hotel, and then headed over to The Knockdown Center in Queens. I was tickled to see this popular concert venue decked out for a marvelous wedding. The decor was so elegant and yet simple, with greenery and white flowers and soft twinkly lights. While guests began to arrive, Josh and Lauren were joined by their family for Tisch and document signings before the formal ceremony in front of guests. After they tied the knot they spent the traditional 7-9 minutes alone while guests got started at the cocktail reception, and we then took some final family group shots in front of the Chuppah before we moved into the main space for dinner and dancing. Highlights of the evening included a very lively first dance and Hora, complete with silly dances presented to the bride and groom, known as Shtick, a beautiful set of toasts from siblings and friends, and Josh’s hilarious cake-cutting antics. I was honored to capture this lovely wedding– it was a delight to end my 2017 season with such a perfect wintry wedding. Congratulations to Lauren & Josh!
