Sarina & Len, March 29; The Water's Edge
Sarina & Len had a beautiful day in NYC last Saturday as they celebrated their wedding with family and friends at the Water's Edge in Long Island City.
Sarina arrived first, getting ready in the bridal suite upstairs where I joined photographers Jared Charney and Coke O'Neal. When Len arrived about 45 minutes later, we arranged for him and Sarina to meet for the first time of the day at the bottom of the stairs.
The happy couple then took photos on the outside deck with amazing views of the Manhattan skyline behind them.
After family and wedding party photos and a quick rehearsal inside, the couple signed the Ketubah and got ready for the ceremoy. Guests arrived on ferries from Manhattan and were ushered to their seats.
After a very intimate ceremony under the Chuppah, the celebration began. Guests were ushered into the adjoining space for cocktail hour before being the entire room opened up for the reception.
Some of the reception highlights included toasts by the sisters and fathers, the Horah and first dance, Len's amazing dancing and a special song by Sarina for Len to end the night.
