kaoru & matty’s wedding: manhattan and brooklyn, ny

one word: intimate.

i loved this wedding.

i spent my first day with matty and kaoru at city hall with family followed by a very cozy reception at rucola in brooklyn the next day. i love shooting at city hall because there are so many characters and everyone there is connected by one beautiful thing: someone is getting married!!

enjoy and share!

it was so cold! standing in the sun was the only way to stay moderately warm.
