[Wedding] Christina & Nick – Tribeca Rooftop in New York City

Ah, Tribeca, otherwise known as the Triangle Below Canal Street – but probably best known as the triangle where presumably all the world’s traffic converge to enter the Holland Tunnel. But on the day of Nick & Christina’s wedding at the Tribeca Rooftop, the world-renowned traffic that usually rumbled along these cobblestone streets was reduced to nothing more than an unusual hush. We’ve been looking forward to Nick & Christina’s wedding for quite some time now, as they’ve found a home on our calendar for the better part of these past two years. In that time, they’ve not only become our #1 fans, but have also warmly welcomed us into their lives as their friends. Their day started nearby at the Smyth Hotel.

Half was a “Bridesmaids” pose, the other half is…well, I’m not exactly sure. I just told them to “act natural”.

We had a request to do a “running away from dinosaur” shot. But alas, we had no dinosaur. So we had to make do.
