Amanda and Eliza met back in 2006. Amanda was drinking her woes away over a recent breakup while Eliza was out partying it up with friends.
Feeling brave, Amanda approached a group of gals at the bar, including Eliza, who was introduced as a dead ringer for Lisa Loeb, Eliza hated this reference. None-the-less, the two hit it off and danced the night away, until they were the only ones left talking at the bar.
Amanda proposed to Eliza in December of 2009 with her Great Grandmother’s ring; and thanks to the July 2011 passage of New York’s Marriage Equality Act, I had the absolute pleasure of shooting their dream wedding in Brooklyn, NY last month.
We started our day at the hip Aloft Hotel in Brooklyn.
Eliza and Amanda held their ceremony and reception at The Roulette, a wedding and performance space on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.
The Roulette is such a beautiful and unique space for a wedding.
The ceremony took place along the balcony surrounded by their friends and family.
Guests really got down and boogied!
Congratulations Amanda and Eliza, and thank you for a fantastic day!
