Katie + Sam | New York, New York | Tribeca 360
Film by: NST Pictures

“Katie and Sam are part of one of the biggest real estate families in New York, though you wouldn’t know it from how down-to-earth and grounded these two are. They chose their venue because it overlooked the city that they love so much together and their current and biggest project building the residences at the top of the Woolworth Building. Watch the video to see how we creatively used some construction and building materials in their decor as a nod to their family business and passion.”

Jane + Jonathan | New York, New York | Harold Pratt House
Film by: NST Pictures

“I wish we could show Jonathan’s full piano performance in the video! The room was spellbound as he performed a surprise piece for his bride. Jane and Jonathan’s wedding was such a reflection of their personalities. Both elegant and classic but still contemporary and intriguing. We loved mixing the classic venue with the playful menu that you see making an entrance in a few clips!”

Alexandra + Justin | Pocantinco Hills, New York | Blue Hill Stone Barns
Film by: NST Pictures

“Alex and Justin are the type of couple to laugh off the elderly rabbi mistakingly referring to them as “Alex and Justine” throughout their ceremony. You can see her fun, sassy personality throughout the video as she does a little happy dance at various times throughout the day. And a closeted artist parading herself as a finance woman, the bride hand drew each of those seed packages for her guests!”

Melisa + Chris | Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy | Villa del Balbianello
Film by: Cinevent Productions

“I think I’ve watched this video 200 times. I know Melisa spent the first few months watching it everyday as she had lunch at her desk and her mom had it on loop in her waiting room for her patients (with a box of Kleenex). Lake Como, this stunning couple, Chris’s speech, the custom Monique Lhuillier gown, the light hitting Melisa’s veil as she turns the corner and then cut to Chris tearing up and shaking his head,..this is the kind of video that makes strangers cry!”
