A Manhattan Wedding Story – Meet Rebekah

I remember receiving Rebekah’s inquiry for bridal hair and makeup services and being so excited to read that she was planning to wed in Manhattan on the Brooklyn Bridge – I mean how creative! First of all, I never thought anyone could get married on the bridge or in the middle of winter for that matter. 

Rebekah and Matt, both lawyers from Alberta, Canada, went thru great lengths to even get into New York after the 20+ inches of snow we received. When plan A (their flight) got cancelled – they were left with no other choice but plan B…30 HOURS OF TRAVELING! Determination and a whole lot of patience finally got them to the great city safe and sound.

Due to the distance between us, a trial was out of the question so I consulted Rebekah via email with inspirational photographs and very descriptive wording. What a success! Everything from her custom built lashes to her romantic updo -Rebekah looked perfect.

A big thank you goes out to Rebekah and Matt for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their wedding story. Images taken at The Affinia Dumont Hotel – East 34th Street and Lexington.
