Sami + Reid

It was a clear fall night in Green Point Brooklyn, Sami and Reid were gather under twinkle lights with their friends and family in the backyard of their favorite bar "The Black Rabbit". There they were sitting at long table with their closest love ones laughing and enjoying some good drinks. To  me it was a perfect representation of where they had come from and where they were going. You know those moments in life that just surprise you resinate with you long after the moment has passed? Well one of those moments happened that night, Reid is an excellent cartoonist and he made this AMAZING print of everyone who helped out with the wedding in some way, he had drawn everyone all on one print and it was in the shape of a dinosour. They stood up and explained why the choose the people they did to have be a part of their wedding day an handed out a print to everyone. It was so special, that night set up the whole wedding day to be that much more amazing.

Everything from Sami and Reid’s wedding day was so perfectly them, from saying “I do” in front of New York City to having quotes from their favorite movies read during the wedding. Their reception was one like I’d never seen, the guests were encouraged to grab as many slices of delicious new york pizza as they wanted, try the assortment of baked goods, grab drinks and mingle. Plus they had the cutest little dinosaur cake topper you'd ever seen. They had some really fun activities for their guest as well, Reid had made little temporary tattoos of him and Sami so by the end of the night everyone got to take a little piece of them home. Our FAVORITE part of the reception was when Sami and Reid’s band played! So at their own wedding they performed! They danced around and just had a really good time!


We are so happy for these two and we hope you loved their images as much as we do!
