[Wedding] Lisa & Kai – The Foundry in Long Island City, NY (Sneak Peeks)

When we first met Lisa and Kai, we knew we were in for a treat. They were a couple who enjoyed exploring off the beaten path, unshackling themselves from the conventions of modern-day wedding planning and all its frenzied glory. It didn’t matter that they did things differently, as long as they were being true to themselves and doing it together; it’s no coincidence that this has always been our approach to everything in life, both personally and professionally. For starters, our first meeting was conducted inside a hole-in-the-wall German biergarten on the Lower East Side, a minor indulgence for the german-speaker in me. They didn’t seem to mind (they may have even enjoyed it!), as they shared their vision of their wedding day over a hearty German breakfast. It was going to be an intimate wedding, outside of the city. No chandeliers, no winding staircases. There would be no formal reception, just a long, extended celebration of two people who fell in love and wished to share it with their closest family members and friends. Ja, we could totally dig it :).

As of this writing, Karis still hasn’t gone into labor. I will literally die from laughter if she gives birth this coming Monday…on Labor Day.

Here’s to different strokes for different folks :).
