I’ve been waiting for this day for 2 1/2 years!! The first time I spoke with Keith was when he was planning to propose to Melanie and wondered if I’d be available to come up to Brooklyn to photograph it. And then I knew I was going to LOVE them when I saw Keith had the sign of the Deathly Hallows etched into the inside band of Melanie’s sparkly new engagement ring!! Throughout their entire wedding planning process, these two were a delight. Both of them unbelievably kind and considerate, both of them excited for their wedding, but even more excited to be married.
Their wedding day was SUCH a reflection of who these two are! From the books Melanie’s bridesmaids carried in lieu of flowers to the Harry Potter-themed invitation suite (just you wait), and with all the sweet signage Melanie’s sister made for their ceremony & reception, it was truly a testament to these two and their love of all things literary and quirky. And with their love of all things magical, Melanie’s champagne ethereal gown by Hayley Paige was the PERFECT dress for her. I could NOT get over how perfectly suited it was for her!
Keith & Melanie, thank you both so much for trusting me to capture so many important moments for you both over the last nearly-three years. It has been such a privilege to be your photographer, and I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to tell the visual side of your love story!! SO much love to you both!
