On April 28, 2018, Ashley & Michael held their wedding ceremony and reception at The Metropolitan Club in New York City.
One of my favorite things is when you show up to shoot a stately event in a private club on 5th ave and the party ends up feeling like a remote island wedding where everyone goes for it. As the night went on, the photobooth got crazy, boxes and boxes of pizza from Patsy’s arrived amping up the fun atmosphere, and the band lit on fire. When all this happens in one of the most impressive spaces in the city, the energy is electric!
After getting set up in the Club, I made my way through Central Park to The Parker Hotel, where Ashley was getting ready downstairs at Blushington. After capturing their first look in the rather spectacular space that is the main foyer of the Metropolitan Club, it was up to the roof and various points around the building for portraits. It was a brilliantly clear, bright day in New York giving a great amount of color and contrast to their outdoor photos.
As the sun came down and guests began to arrive, we settled in to the warmly lit space on the first floor for their ceremony before things really started to get going during the reception.
