Randi + Karlo: Public Wedding

You may recognize Randi and Karlo as the couple from the vintage bike engagement session. Well, their wedding was thoughtful, emotional and uniquely personal.

These bells featured Randi and Karlo’s ‘wedding insignia’ and served double duty as a favor and for guests to ring as the couple left the church.

At this point in the ceremony, the minister asked the guests to extend their hands and bless the bride and groom, sending their own love to the couple. It was an emotionally powerful moment that I even took pause at. Thinking back on it, I am reminded of the ad for Mary Poppins on Broadway, “Even I…a jaded New Yorker…”

Then they were off in a vintage Checker Cab for portraits. How well thought out was the planning of this wedding? The couple’s “thank you” cards to the bridal party (and to me) were written on miniature vintage taxi models.

After portraits, we headed downtown to Public for the reception. Do you see the ‘escort cards’ in the upper left corner below? Each one is hand stamped – each letter individually stamped. That takes some effort, folks. You can also see some of the prints from the photo booth we set up for them at the reception. You can see some of the pictures from the photo booth here.
