New York Wedding Photographer | Jennifer and Jean Noel

Jennifer and Jean Noel were my first wedding of 2013, and what a great way to kick off the year!  Married at the Roosevelt hotel on a beautiful mid-April day, their wedding took the words “romantic,” “heartwarming,” and “joyful” to new heights.   Weddings are all about love, and when you see the love of a couple radiating out and captivating their friends and families as well, that is a powerful love.   This wedding was almost just as much about celebrating two people coming together as it was two families and cultures coming together.   It began with Jennifer getting ready at the Roosevelt Hotel, her nervous excitement well contained under her sweet smile.   The ceremony was filled with traditional elements, but Jennifer and Jean Noel were not afraid to bring their personalities to it.   From incorporating Beatles covers into their ceremony, to speaking to each other personal vows, the ceremony had the guests captivated.   The personal, and moving moments of this wedding are too many to tell:  Jean Noel’s vows “I once was scared to be married, now I’m scared to live without you”  (I cried);  all of Jean Noel’s family and friends singing along to their first dance song, “La Vie En Rose,”; and Jennifer’s Irish father’s toast where he pronounced that  “So Jean-Noel is really an Irishman!”  Each family made a concentrated effort to make the other feel included, giving their speeches in both French and English, even when it was a struggle!   Jennifer’s brother, her “man of honor,”  admitted in his toast that the only French words he knew were “au revoir”, “rendezvous,” and “croissant,” and jokingly attempted to pronounce each word in his best French accent, which had Jean Noel’s relatives in hysterics.  After dancing the night away, the guests joined in a traditional wedding dance from Brittany, France.

 

Jennifer, you are a knockout!

Jennifer and Jean Noel danced their first dance to “La Vie en Rose.”  One of the most special moments of  the night was when all the French guests joined in singing a long, in this picture both Jennifer and Jean Noel’s closest family members are embracing and swaying to the music as they watched these two that they love dance their first dance.

I want Alex and I to be just like Jennifer’s parents when we “grow up”:  still in love and dancing after many years of marriage!

Traditional Brittany dance, many of the American guests did not hesitate to join in!
