style me pretty

David + Vanessa | The Foundry | Long Island City Wedding

When I saw you first, it took

every ounce of me not to kiss you.

When I saw you laugh, it took

every ounce of me not to love you.

And when I saw your soul, it took every ounce of me.

-Atticus

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

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
