Sonia & Lewis, August 18; Wave Hill
Sonia and Lewis, doctors who met while working together in NYC, decided to embrace the outdoors as part of their August 18 wedding by choosing Wave Hill, nestled in a beautiful corner of the Bronx. The outdoors was a great host- providing amazing weather for a mid August day, so that Sonia, Lewis and all their guests could fully enjoy the beautiful gardens and their majestic views.
The day started with Lewis and Sonia arriving early to get ready in a few of the rooms of the main mansion at Wave Hill before exploring its never-ending gardens both alone and with their families and wedding party.
The Hudson River proved a perfect backdrop while Lewis and Sonia exchanged vows. The guests enjoyed an impromptu dance on the back patio from the couple during cocktails that followed. After their dance, Sonia slipped out of her beautiful white gown and into a traditional Indian dress while Lewis changed his tie to match his new wife's dress.
The reception began with the introduction of the couple followed right by the first dance- which was a remix intended to acknowledge their diverse backgrounds and cultures. The dance floor was rarely empty during the evening, with traditional Indian songs dominating, interspersed by some of Lewis' hard rock favorites from Bon Jovi, Metallica and Guns & Roses. A special dance by some bridesmaids, a few poignant toasts and a slideshow by Sonia's nephew were just a few of the highlights from what surely will be a night to remember for the lucky couple.
