“I guess now I am supposed to give you some advice” Michelle’s Dad said as he stood there holding up the microphone looking at his beautiful daughter and new son-in-law. As if right on cue one of Michelle’s relatives stood up and gave a piece of advice, then another person stood up and another and another! Each piece of advice was laced with whit, kindness and so much love. Michelle’s face light up as she listened. Finally, her brother stood up “It’s not like I have a lot of experience” he said “but, just show up” and with that the entire room sighed. Just show up. Simple, yet so important.
Getting married at Abbie Holmes Estate was something Michelle had been dreaming about for years and the day was truly a dream come true! It was absolutely stunning. From the quaint and beautifully decorated rooms to the breath-taking ceremony all the way to the gorgeous outdoor dance floor, it was magical in the best of ways!
All night Michelle was stealing glances at Rob as he was smiling down at her like there was no one else in the room. I knew that showing up was exactly what they were going to do. Show up no matter what, be each others rock and best friend. Be the person they could laugh with and cry with. Be the one that loves each other in every way at all times.
Michelle and Rob, your love is beautiful, genuine and so incredibly inspiring, it was truly an honor to be the one to capture your big day!!

"Yael went above & beyond what you'd expect from your wedding photographer. We started off getting to know each other during our engagement shoot. Yael dropped everything to drive to Brooklyn to shoot at the spot of our choice. She would have hiked a mountain with her camera equipment if we had asked. During our wedding day, she managed our disorganized family with grace"
