Their beautiful story began 12 years ago filled with love and friendship…
Itâ€™s an early morning of October, we arrived at the Westin Hotel where Christina and the girlâ€™s preparations were well underway. The make-up was being applied by the bride herself and her hair was done by her sister, Pam who is a professional makeup artist with Evelyn Charles. Later in the morning, the rest of the bridesmaids and family members joined in for a quick peek at the beautiful and elegant bride-to-be.
On the guyâ€™s side, things were more subtle. Dustin had already walked their dogs and had been anticipating our arrival. Dustin works in the catering industry and was thrilled to share his books and travels of the culinary world while we steeped our morning tea. He is also an avid body builder. As he does his morning workout, I canâ€™t help but notice his resemblance to â€œRockyâ€, which is also his favourite movie.
Both Christina and Dustin are huge fans of NYC culture when it comes to movies, cuisine and lifestyle. They were delighted to shoot with us at venues that reflected their deep passion for NYC. We even made a surprise cameo visit at Sam Abouhassan, who custom made Dustinâ€™s sharp looking suit.
As the evening came around, the ballroom was filled with gorgeous decor, flowers and chocolate. Christina and Dustinâ€™s family and friends were treated to an intimate 5 course dinner and dancing at the Westin Hotel. Toasting, cheering and dancing lasted well into the night before we shuffled them out for a few shots on the beautiful skywalk.
Thank you Christina and Dustin for sharing your wonderful day with us and for trusting our vision.
