I just love me a New York City wedding and the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City has to be my favorite venue in New York. Full of so many cool nooks, crannies and antiques including a room full of at least 50 antique chairs, the Metropolitan Building gives off a distinctly shabby chic or feminine rustic vibe that is hard to find in a New York City wedding venue. It was at this gorgeous space that Scott and Sheri decided to tie the knot. As American United Nations employees working and living full time in the Middle East it was hard for them to chose the perfect spot to tie the knot with their friends and family from all over the world. In the end they decided on New York City, a central location for everybody.
Scott and Sheri have a love that lights up a room because it’s so clear that they feel completely at rest in eachother’s presence. As Scott and Sheri’s friend/officiant said, self-sacrificing love in marriage should come easy to Scott and Sheri who probably understand this better than any of us. They who have given their lives to serve a foreign, impoverished, war-torn land with very little chance at thanks or reward. That’s the kind of love that anchors a strong marriage through the best and worst of times.
This lovely wedding was planned by the talented Kate from Green Apple Weddings a veteran at planning and coordinating Metropolitan Building weddings and videoed by one of my favorite video teams, Love and You Video who have that special gift so many videographers lack of being virtually unseen and yet capturing every moment perfectly. A big thank you to my second shooter Sidney and assistant Kristy who were such blessings throughout the day.
