Columbia University Faculty House Wedding

Casey and Nick | Married Columbia University Faculty House Wedding

Weddings

October 7, 2013

It was a busy Saturday morning in NYC when we arrived at the hotel where Casey and Nick were getting ready.  The bustle of the city seemed to be multiplied by a hundred with tons of pedestrians and dozens of road closures due to the nearby fair and parade.  But when I entered Casey’s hotel room, all was calm, and the world seemed drastically different. You would never know you were in NYC.  And this is the feeling that kept coming back to me all throughout the day.

Casey and Nick met while they were students at Columbia Law School so it was only natural for them to choose the university campus as the backdrop for their wedding day. From start to finish, there were reminders throughout the day of the place where they met and fell in love.  They chose to do a First Look right outside of the law school and library and I think time stopped for a second or two when Nick saw his bride for the first time that day.  Nick had a way of looking at Casey that made everything else seem to disappear.  We loved witnessing their love for each other, because even though we hadn’t met Casey and Nick before their wedding day, we could tell right away that these two were meant for each other.  From their First Look to portraits on the campus, their day started out perfectly.  And just when I thought it couldn’t get better, it did!  After we took their portraits on the campus, we entered the gorgeous St. Paul’s Chapel and the dome was so stunning that any visitor would be sure to remark on its beauty.  Jay and I love photographing beautiful architecture so we were thrilled to be able to capture a wedding in the chapel. After a beautiful ceremony, the guests made their way to the reception at the Columbia University Faculty House, which had magnificent views of the city through arched windows facing the outdoor terrace.  All in all, Jay and I had such a great time photographing Casey and Nick’s wedding day.  It was perfect in every sense of the word.  Enjoy just some of our favorites!

P.S. Thank you to Casey’s sister, Megan Curren, for introducing us to her family, one person at a time.
