I was working as a waitress in a neighborhood bar when I first met Molly and Ed in 2008. I started working at Whiskey Tavern the week after I moved to New York. It was a new bar in Chinatown tucked between two bail bonds and across the street from the Manhattan jail and courts. The bar was regularly filled with police officers, detectives, court reporters, bail bondsmen, neighborhood residents, and lawyers. People frequently came in and said, “This place is like Cheers.”
Molly and Ed were two of my favorite regulars at Tavern. They both worked across the street as Manhattan Assistant District Attorneys. I’m pretty sure I gave them happy hour pricing till about midnight and never charged them more than $3 for a beer. They were not dating when we first met, but I had heard more recently from my Tavern friends that they had started dating, and were engaged. When Molly contacted me to photograph their wedding I was thrilled. I knew it would be an awesome night with great people, a lot of love, and a ton of impressive dance moves.
Molly and Ed were married at the Bridgeview Yacht Club in Island Park, Long Island. It was a gorgeous day and both of them could not stop smiling and laughing all day and night. I can honestly say it was some of the strongest dancing I have ever seen at a wedding including a grand entrance to Thunderstruck, a choreographed dance to Paradise by the Dashboard Light, and an entire wedding singalong to Piano Man. I am so grateful to have been a part of your wedding day; thank you Molly and Ed!
Special thanks to my friend Megan Swann for second shooting this wedding with me! Venue: Bridgeview Yacht Club Dress: Enzoani from RK Bridal Makeup: Paula Young Flowers: Steven Dalismer Cake: Sweet Peace DJ: Intense Entertainment Stationery: Minted
