A Wedding at The Lighthouse in Manhattan

Rachel & Ross. Ross & Rachel. Wow!!! We read their names when they first contacted us by email, and we knew we had to shoot this wedding! 😀

It was a beautiful day at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, and Rachel and Ross chose to see one another before their ceremony. As her family and closest friends looked on from a distance, it was such a privilege to photograph them during this intimate moment. They love pictures so much that we got to walk around the pier for an hour to capture some fun and fashionable photos of the two of them. This time together was so appreciated and important! 🙂

The rapidly waning light of their sunset ceremony lent a very intimate feel to the proceedings even though there were hundreds in attendance. You could tell that they could hardly believe it as they were pronounced as husband and wife. The cheering for them was incredible, as was the reception party to follow.

Rachel & Ross, we were truly moved by your beautiful day, and inspired by the deep love that your parents have for each of you. Rachel, we were particularly touched by the poem read by your grandmother. It was such a special day, and we sincerely thank you for choosing us and showing such confidence in us to take care of you on your wedding day. Thank you, too, for the amazing chilean sea bass dinner! Double yum! 🙂

  • Ulysses - Hi there, Gulnara! Wow! How exciting to hear that you were there, too! I’m guessing your wedding was next door at Pier 60? We really enjoy the Lighthouse venue. Picking this place was really special for this couple. So we simply used the area around it for their first meeting together before the ceremony, and then we had some fun walking around the pier. It was a fantastic day, and it’s no wonder Jenni and I were so pumped about it!

    I’m sorry that I missed speaking with you. Jenni told me later on that someone from the DWF spoke briefly with her, but she couldn’t remember your name. The funny part is that I thought I heard someone call my name, but I didn’t have time to figure out who it was. It must have been you! So thanks for writing! 🙂August 25, 2007 – 3:02 AM

  • Gulnara - Hi guys,

  • Ulysses - Mrs. Gotler, we are so excited that the very first comment on this blog entry comes from you. We had such a good time at the wedding. You can probably tell how much we enjoy what we do simply by watching the smiles on our faces while we take everything in and capture it for the enjoyment of not only the couple but also their families.

    The slideshow above is just a little taste of all the emotive and exciting moments that took place. We’re hard at work preparing the photos for everyone’s enjoyment, and they should be ready for viewing soon. I think you’re going to really enjoy them. 🙂

    Our best to you and Mr. Gotler. Warm regards.August 22, 2007 – 6:07 PM

  • Elaine & Leonard Gotler - Magnificent subjects, and photos to match! We’re eagerly awaiting the rest of the batch. Thank you, thank you!!
