Corey and Eric’s wedding held at the Water Tower in The Williamsburg Hotel was absolutely perfect! Surrounded by their nearest and dearest, they promised themselves to each other through tearful vows, thumb wrestling, and a toast to their future together. Their celebration was a weekend affair with many guests traveling out of town; many of us staying at the incredible Hoxton and spending time reminiscing and preparing for the big day!
Every detail was so thoughtful and uniquely their own. Corey’s stunning heirloom engagement ring was Eric’s grandmother’s, handed down by Eric’s sweet mom. Her sister gifted her a handkerchief fashioned out of their late mother’s fabric and lace from her own wedding gown that Corey held close in her pocket. She wore her grandfather’s ring, and they stood in the grand windows of the Water Tower overlooking the Manhattan skyline as they read their vows that left no one with dry eyes. Eric’s best friend officiated the ceremony, and their closest friends and family filled the intimate space on various couches and chairs to witness their love.
Afterwards, the celebration moved to The Counting Room where guests enjoyed custom cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, toasts, and the delicious cake topped with succulents and roses. From there, the party continued with karaoke at The Roebling and a pizza nightcap, of course!
Corey and I have been best friends for well over half of our lives, and I couldn’t have imagined any other way to serve her and Eric well than by photographing the most important day of their lives. To say it is an honor is truly an understatement! Congratulations you two! I am blessed to be a part of your family and I can’t wait to see everything that your future holds as husband and wife!
