Rain has drops
Sun has shine
Moon has beams
That make you mine
Rivers have banks
Sands for shores
Hearts have heartbeats
That make me yours
Needles have eyes
Though pins may prick
Elmer has glue
To make things stick
Winter has Spring
Stockings feet
Pepper has mint
To make it sweet
Teachers have lessons
Soup du jour
Lawyers sue bad folks
Doctors cure
All and all
This much is true
You have me
And I have you.

-Nikki Giovanni

I choose you

again and again

no matter the year.

I choose you

knowing there are mountains left to clim.

I choose you

to always be by my side.

Michael + Allie | Liberty House | Jersey City Wedding

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart).

Highline Hotel Chelsea Wedding | Patrick + Emily

TheHighlineHotel.ChelseaWedding.SD57.jpg

And her heart was the best part, 

it would always calm the storm for those who were afraid of a little rain.

-R.M. Drake

On our way to the ceremony it began to pour buckets of rain the way it does in New York City summers:  completely out of nowhere not cognizant of our plans.  It just rains--even when it's your wedding day and you're walking to the ceremony and get trapped under a bridge.  Just like it happened on Patrick and Emily's wedding day.

Something about it was sorta perfect though.  Because isn't that life?  You have all of these perfect plans, and then something happens out of left field.  There's nothing you can do about it and it's not even about the thing; it's what you make of it.  And the light heartedness and laughter that Emily had about being stuck under a dirty bridge in Chelsea in her wedding dress made me feel confident that these two are going to move through lifes unexpected moments with open hands--because they embrace the unexpected.

The rain stopped, and we ran to the ceremony, and the weather was perfect for portraits, and they seriously danced the night away.  I mean these guys know how to have a dance party!

Patrick and Emily you two are some of my dream clients.  You're authentic, so connected to each other, and you love your tribe so well!  I can't wait to see life unfold for y'all!  Thank you for letting me be apart of your journey!

XO,

Kat

St. Thomas Wedding | Rodrigo + Lindsey

You are the

finest,

loveliest,

tenderest,

and most beautiful person 

I have ever known.

--and even that is an understatement.

-F. Scot Fitzgerald

P.S.  I think everyone should have a wedding week.  They're sorta the best.  Thanks Rodrigo + Lindsey for having us!

XO,

Kat

Museum of the City of New York Wedding | Andrew + Kira

'I don't believe in magic.'

The young boy said.

The old man smiled.

'You will when you see her.'

-Atticus

Patrick + Emily | DUMBO Engagements

And as I sat and looked at her,

and the rolling hills she sat upon,

I thought, what amazing luck I have,

that the world had created such beautiful things,

and given me the eyes to seem them.

-Atticus

Clark + Becca | Second Baptist Houston Wedding

 

And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after.  But for them it was only the beginning of the real story.  All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page:  now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read:  which goes on forever, in which every chapter is better than the one before.

-CS Lewis

 

Sarah Seven Bridal | The Romantics Collection

Minutes before doors opened to her Bridal Romantics Collection Presentation she had someone on her team light a cigar and puff the sweet smoke throughout the room.

With her indie playlist going in the background; it was the final touch to complete her Parisian Bistro dream come reality.  And to me that is a glimpse into the world of Sarah Seven.  She is attentive to the tiny details.  The ones we may not even notice, but out of conviction and creativity she executes anyways.  That is inspiring to me.  And she invites you into her world of romance, spunk, and adventure.  

Getting to work with Sarah and her team the last several months has been an adventure.  There has been more than one dance party, and lots of laughter.  I can't wait to see what dreams she invites us into next!

XO,

Kat
