i wish i could physically share how cold that day was. it was my first time to cover a wedding on a winter season. no snow fall that day, thank God. what kept me going that day was the warmth of everyone around me. my friends who accompanied and helped me and the warmth of the families and friends of david and monica.
i can still boldly remember the first time i saw new york some three years ago. i was teary-eyed because finally, without expecting it that it’ll happen soon, i was able to experience what it is to be in the concrete jungle. new york offers a lot of things, not only to an artist like me but to everyone. there are a lot of things to be discovered everytime. there’s always something to look forward to.
this wedding was done on the lower east side of manhattan. the place is very new york minus the tall buildings like along those in madison. but the feel is very urban yet homey. both ceremony and reception were held in the angel orensanz foundation, tagged as one of the best wedding venues in new york. it’s an old synagogue, turned into an art gallery and an event place, a perfect place for david and monica’s big day, who are both very exposed in arts and what’s beautiful.
this is basically one of the reasons why i love destination weddings, you discover a lot of things, which are sometimes beyond what you expected.
enjoy new york!
