The wedding took place on a rooftop with the cityscape surrounding like a forest of color. High above the streets, in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, Sarah and Michael made their vows in the presence of all their friends and family. The city stretched out around them, embracing them, and the guests lined up to give them a huge congratulatory hug. It was joyful, tender, and beautiful.
Sarah and Michael are two of the most down to earth people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting, and spending time with them was a grounding experience. I could tell that their love is a deeply rooted one that blossoms in a way that those around them take notice.
Together with a ridiculously talented group of vendors, this wedding at Studio 450 in NYC was an incredible one. Filled with fun details and amazing views but, most of all, filled with love, laughter, and all the things that matter in life.

Sarah began her wedding day by getting ready at Hotel Indigo in the Fashion District of NYC.
Sarah’s Vera Wang dress from Saks Fifth Ave. was the perfect compliment to her day but, mostly importantly, her personality and classic style.
Sarah and Michael had their wedding at Studio 450 in NYC, a rooftop venue that has stunning views of NYC’s skyline. They did an Old Hollywood theme, which complimented their classic style.

Sarah had each of her bridesmaids choose a different dress in her neutral color palette.
The light on top of Studio 450 was absolutely divine, making for a fantastic wedding portrait time for us!
One of the things I loved most about Studio 450 was that, even though it was right in the middle of New York City, it didn’t feel like a wedding venue with a lot of hustle and bustle. It was moderately quiet and felt very personal and intimate.
While the guests were being seated at Studio 450, we snuck up onto the top roof of the venue to finish off Sarah and Michael’s wedding pictures. I don’t think we were technically supposed to be up there, but the staff of Studio 450 were incredibly kind and knew the images we would take would be worth it. Another reason why I loved shooting this wedding at Studio 450!
If you thought the outside of Studio 450 was a wedding photographer’s dream, just look at the inside! Incredible, huge windows on all sides which not only gave us a greta view of NYC but provided fantastic light as well.
Toward the end of the evening, Sarah surprised Michael and snuck him up to the roof of Studio 450 to sing a song to him. This girl has brains, beauty, and an amazingly beautiful voice!
As if they didn’t already impress their wedding guests enough, Michael and Sarah ended their evening with a Congac and Cigar bar up on the roof of Studio 450.
