I loved Katie from the first time I met her on a rainy day in Astoria. Not only do I automatically love people who laugh with their whole face and body, but she is also extremely warm, kind and deep. Katie and I chatted about everything from her family to her wedding dress and especially about her and David’s special love story. Katie and David were friends for almost 10 years before they started dating. Their passion for music was the foundation of their relationship and their hangouts usually consisted of venturing into the city to hear the the NY Philharmonic. I was not surprised that they decided to hire a DJ AND a band for their wedding in tribute to their love for music. I met David a few months later when we were getting closer to the wedding and I saw that their love story was summed up for me in David’s face when he looked at Katie. I found out quickly that he shared Katie’s kindness and warmth for people, though in his own more reserved manner, and they both know how to have a good time! Their wedding so unique and full of emotion and special moments that I can’t even begin to describe. Hopefully these pictures can give you a little taste instead of this special couple’s big day. Thank you Diane for second shooting and providing me with some of these lovely images, and thank you Stefania for your assistance that day!
