It was more than just fate, it was a hurricane. When Super storm Sandy knocked the power out of Matt’s downtown Manhattan apartment, he moved onto an air mattress uptown on the floor of one of Emily’s closest friends’ apartments. She is a kindergarten teacher and a New Yorker; he’s from Boston. Somehow the Eli Manning Giants jersey she wore that night failed to deter Matt because they hit it off immediately, and the rest is history.
Despite starting their New York wedding day with looming storm clouds, Emily and Matt married on a beautiful summer day at the Apawamis Club in Rye, NY. We adore Emily’s gown, with its delicate details and unique silhouette. Matt’s sharp black tux was the perfect compliment to Emily’s dress and the elegant wedding ay style.
With a palette of whites and blues, we love that the design of their day opted for summer friendly colors, while maintaining an elegant rustic style. We love the look of the farm tables throughout the reception space adorned with pops of white and blue arrangements, designed by Frank Soriano from House of Flowers , which brought the perfect spot of color to the neutral space.
Jessica Haley captured all of the beauty and joy of the day, and are so thrilled to share this celebration with you!
These two laughed and danced the night away, and we love how evident their love and joy was throughout their beautiful day of celebration.
