[Wedding] Hae-Yoon & Bernard – Snug Harbor

To demonstrate how much I love my fellow readers and clients alike, I’m writing this post amidst a flurry of construction work that is going on around me while our Lil Monster’s passed out in bed after a short, harrowing, heart-breaking ordeal at the emergency room (he’s fine now though!). But for now, allow me to present to you guys the beautiful Hae-Yoon and the not-too-shabby Bernard, who wed this Spring on the sprawling grounds of Snug Harbor in Staten Island. We were oh-so-happy to be there on their special day, but oh-so-sad that our photography adventures had finally come to its conclusion!

Let me tell you why Bernard is so awesome: (1) He’s wearing jammy-pants with Family Guy characters on them. (2) He’s drinking Dunkin Donuts while doing so.

So here’s the skinny on the bunny rabbit with the wings in the background: Bernard has a very particular skill set which allows him to create stuffed animals…for his darling new wife, of course. We had brought it along for our engagement session just a few months prior, but we totally forgot and left this poor fella in the car. Build-a-Bear, you cant eat Bernard’s shorts (which I’m sure also has Family Guy characters printed on them).
