The city streets of New York were the perfect backdrop for Roseann and Thomas’ classic wedding. The day began with a traditional ceremony at Church of the St. Paul of the Apostle, followed by a stunning urban photo shoot of the newlyweds and an elegant dinner reception at Locanda Verde. The whole affair was beautifully photographed by Joel & Justyna.
Roseann and Thomas
Locanda Verde, New York, New York
Classic, simple, and very city-inspired. St Paul the Apostle was a clear choice for our ceremony because it served as my neighbor for many years. The church itself is a beautiful gothic revival. Our officiant, Father Paul Lostritto, a Franciscan priest is also a good friend of mine who I met through practicing yoga. As we took our photos, we wanted our guests to enjoy the views of the city, and thus, had hired a double-decker bus to give them a tour of the city.
My favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle with my father and meeting Thomas at the other end. Everyone was incredibly happy, excited, and loving. I walked down to my favorite song, Canon in D, a song I had played on the piano since the fourth grade.
