The Grand Ballroom Wedding of Kristen and Andrew at The Hudson House, NYC Suburbs

12-20-22

Romeo and Juliet may have been long gone, and the tales of John Keats and Fanny Brawne's romance, may continue to inspire us, but there is one thing that is never forgotten and stays common in the greatest tales from around the world- 'Love'. With the ability to move mountains and pierce through rooftops, the crackling firewood of love can never be contained and no amount of expressions can do justice to what two people who are so deeply in love can feel. 

 

And as quoted by Lila DiPasqua, "Once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

 

We were lucky to witness one of such love stories and document it through our camera shutters in the romantic winter of 2021.
