I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived for the ceremony in South Beach, Staten island.  The setting was more than lovely, it reminded me of the many weddings I shoot in Florida, palm trees and everything!  We are of course part of New York City but we are in fact an island onto our selves. http://www.vanderbiltsouthbeach.com/ and http://www.southfingrill.com/ took care of all the arrangements.  The happy couple Michelle and Tom were glowing.  They were so much fun to photograph,  I naturally loved every second of it.
