Maggie got ready in a stunning suite at the Andaz Hotel on Wall Street. The south facing rooms are perfect for getting-ready photos. Danny prepared for the big event at their home, which is a stone’s throw from the Andaz Hotel and 1 Hanover Square. The bride and groom had their first look on the hotel rooftop, a perfect place for New York City skyline wedding photos. They then made their way to Hanover Square for additional bridal portraits. The couple lives in a building on Hanover Square, so the ability to be reminded of their wedding day every day is one reason they chose 1 Hanover Square as their wedding venue. Aside from the fact that it is a historic landmark, the space offers a special piece of New York history and allows guests to enjoy the ambiance of many different rooms filled with beautiful artwork and artifacts from the 1800’s. Uniquely, the ceremony took place on the staircase of the main floor. This was the first time we had shot a wedding ceremony on a staircase, which was an original idea that photographed beautifully. After the couple said their vows, guests greeted them and everyone enjoyed cocktails in the lobby. The reception was held on the second floor with dinner and dancing in two separate rooms. We love creating photography at 1 Hanover Square because they offer an original experience for each couple using diverse configurations of the venue. No two weddings we have shot there have ever been alike and Maggie and Danny’s event was no exception. We thoroughly enjoyed working with this lovely couple.
