I had the honor of photographing this festive and fabulous wedding at the Seamen's Church Institute in lower Manhattan. Elizabeth and Steve incorporated their personal histories beautifully - hers in hospitality, his with the Bowne printing company. (I even made a special pre-wedding visit to Bowne, where the kind store operator made a "LOVE" print on an accounting log sheet from the 1800s, and sent it back with me to the couple as a gift.)
Since many of their guests were coming from abroad, and Elizabeth and Steve had just decided to make NYC a more permanent home, they gave the entire wedding a New York theme, with details like the Brooklyn Bridge on the cake, and Empire State Building cookies as favors. From the special printing press announcements to the Snickers lollipop desserts, this was truly a wedding to remember.
Elizabeth had these kind things to say about working with me:
"Sarah Sloboda Photography was responsive throughout the pre-wedding process. They were extremely professional and incredibly flexible. Everyone who sees our wedding photographs says that they should be in a magazine - and that is high praise coming from a group of New York City creatives! Without a doubt, we will be using Sarah Sloboda Photography for any other future events we have."
