As a leading NYC wedding photographer, we have had the privilege of capturing some of the city’s most beautiful weddings. However, few venues hold the magic of the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park. That’s why we were thrilled when Kate and Nate chose this iconic location for their special day. Oh, by the way, if you’re a fun of Netflix Kaleidoscope, look for Nate in the show 😉
Working alongside the talented Cindy Altunis from Cindy Altunis Events, we knew that this wedding was going to be one for the books. Cindy’s exceptional planning skills and attention to detail made every aspect of the day flawless, and we were honored to document it all.
From Kate, the bride
I wore a Pnina Tornai gown. When I bought it from Kleinfeld’s, Pnina was there as it was a trunk show, so I thought it was meant to be! We removed some additional lining from the bottom and about a week or so before the wedding, I added the bow I got from Etsy for $12. I also loved my gloves!
Nate and I met while we were juniors at Pace University. We were both resident advisors and met during an orientation retreat. We’ve been together ever since and got married on the exact date of our first date – 10 years later!
Nate and I are both into classic styles, which is why we went for the old school, classic New York theme. The Boathouse provided a perfect backdrop for the wedding with its iconic Central Park location.
Since we got engaged during the pandemic, we had a lot of free time to plan the wedding. We planned the majority of the wedding, but hired our fantastic planner, Cindy Altunis, https://cindyaltunis.com/ who helped in the months leading up to the wedding on the big day! She was fantastic and made the day so special.
The Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot
Our day with Kate and Nate began with a pre-wedding photo shoot around the city. We started with an emotional first look at the New York Public Library on 5th avenue, capturing the couple’s raw emotion and love. From there, we moved on to the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park, where we took advantage of the stunning surroundings for some breathtaking photos.
The Loeb Boathouse provided the perfect backdrop for a final session, and we were able to capture the venue’s rustic charm and unparalleled beauty. The images we captured during this session were some of our favorites from the day, and we knew that they would be treasured by the couple for years to come.
The ceremony took place inside the Loeb Boathouse, where Cindy’s exquisite attention to detail was on full display. Elegant accents, coupled with awe-inspiring floral arrangements, created a romantic atmosphere that was both intimate and sophisticated.
The bride looked stunning in her gown, and the groom was equally dashing in his bespoke suit. As the couple exchanged their heartfelt vows, their love radiated throughout the room, inspiring all present to bear witness to this captivating moment in time.
After the ceremony, guests were ushered to the reception area, where Cindy’s captivating decor continued to enchant. Table settings were adorned with candles and delicate floral arrangements, imparting a warm and inviting ambiance.
The sumptuous cuisine and premium drinks served during the reception complemented the enthralling live band that serenaded guests all night. The dance floor proved to be a popular spot, and the couple’s first dance was an emotional and unforgettable moment that left all guests spellbound.
Capturing the Magic of the Day
As the day came to a close, we were left with a sense of awe and wonder at the magic of the Loeb Boathouse and the talent of Cindy Altunis. We knew that the images we captured that day would serve as a timeless testament to the couple’s enduring love and the beauty of their wedding.
We feel fortunate to have been a part of such a special day, and we look forward to returning to the Loeb Boathouse to capture more beautiful New York weddings. We’re also excited to continue working with the talented Cindy Altunis, whose exceptional planning skills and creativity
