DeeDee & John had a picture perfect wedding this July at the Ritz Carlton Battery Park New York NY.Over the top florals, an awesome band, and plenty of romance and love made this wedding one to remember. All DeeDee's family flew into NYC from all over the world to attend the event and the Ritz staff took great care of everyone. The ceremony, reception, and ketubah signing all were located in the elegant ballrooms. And we got to take photographs around battery park which has amazing views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island. It was the perfect rainy moody NYC day and I think their outdoor images are reminiscent to Alred Steiglitz early 20th century photography of the city. Enjoy the images!
John Calls DeeDee "bobo". Pretty cute relationship really.

Classic DeeDee. She always turns her head when she smiles.

The guys wore hand tied bowties. If you decide to make this leap of bowtie faith you really need to allow 45 minutes just for tieing the bow ties. Seriously. The day of If you can't figure keep "Lucky Levons Down in Columbia South Caroline's" youtube video handy for reference: for the key bowtie beta click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJv4Qh7zR3E
