Nadya & Jordache | Gotham Hall, New York City Wedding

It has been just over a week since Nadya’s and Jordache’s wedding at Gotham Hall, but I can still sense their unbelievable carefree spirit from the day. I do not say that lightly or for the sake of flattery. A wedding can be an overwhelming event, and it is easy to get so wrapped up in the heightened expectations of one of the most memorable days of your life, that even sweet natured fun spirits can feel restrained. This is especially true on wind-swept and rainy day such as the one we had to contend with. To their credit, and my joy, this was certainly not the case with them. It is often said that the window to the soul is through the eyes, but for Nadya, it could equally be said of her smile, which was ever-present and drew me and everyone else in. Of course, her wedding planner, Christine Godsey of Engaging Affairs, did a splendid job creating and managing the flow of the day and making the space gorgeous.

The rapport I shared with this amazing couple grew out of our engagement shoot which can be seen here. There is also the story there of how they met, including their first brief meeting when they were only seven. So it was my pleasure to capture years later when their love for each other and infectious enthusiam for life in general, was brought together to be united by formal vows. And just when the ceremony finished, it was an especially beautiful touch and a reflection of their uplifting spirits, that perched high above, a gospel choir broke into song.

Nadya and Jordache are both on their honeymoon now in Thailand. It is difficult to add something to the beauty and pleasure of that amazing country, but I hope if they check their email, this quick sneak peak of their photos, will possibly broaden further their already wide smiles.

UPDATE: I just received this amazing email from Nadya, who is still on her honeymoon in Bali:
Shira! OMG, OMG, OMG, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo Prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!. People in the business center think Im crazy sitting here screaming at the computer! I Love every last bit of it! Didnt think the honeymoon could get any better. Cant wait to get home and show my family. They are gonna die! We are at the St. Regis in Bali after finishing up in Phuket and Bangkok. Thank you so much for the out of this world experience. Your work has got to be showcased in something really big. I dont know how , but this should be in Vogue (I have delusions of grandeur Im so excited!)
