Ashley & Mark; The St. Regis Hotel, NYC
Mark came all the way from Australia to meet the woman of his dreams so when Tim Alan Smith arrived at St. Ignatius Loyola Church on 84th and Park, he was all smiles as the moment drew near. When beautiful Ashley was escorted down the aisle by her glowing father, Mark and his mates along with the rest of the guests could not keep their eyes off her. The ceremony was was beautiful and the couple exited to cheers from their family and friends. They entered their waiting Rolls Royce for the short drive to the St. Regis Hotel on 5th Avenue. Ashley and Mark took a quick peek of the cocktail area and main room before having Kellie and Rupert from 4 Eyes Photography take photos of them with friends and family. After catching the second half of cocktail hour, the couple was introduced and had a pretty romantic first dance. Toasts by Ashley's father and the best man were great, but Mark's speech in which he both praised and ribbed his new bride really brought down the house. Other highlights included the wedding party getting photos dancing on 5th Avenue (and almost getting hit by speeding taxis), crazy dance moves by a handful of guests, the delicious filet mignon and beautiful cake as well as the overall beauty and fun of the evening. All and all, a night that few will forget!
