Hilary & Brad Wedding – Bride and Groom – Plaza Hotel – Hechler Photographers

 

February is the month of love. We’re not just saying this because every drug store in New York City is heavily stocked with Valentine’s Day chocolates right now. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the harsh post-holiday reality of January has finally settled and we are starting see things clearer, with our hearts and minds. Or maybe the cold weather has us searching for comfort and good company. There’s just something about this time of year that feels romantic and warm.

We were thinking about how February has come to symbolize amorous emotions when choosing this month’s Bride & Blossom Featured Bride, Hilary. She and Brad said “I Do” in a glamorous pink and white wedding at the Plaza Hotel. Here, Hilary shares the first part of their love story.

Lorenza & Pete Wedding – Bride Groom – New York Botanical Garden – by The Hons 

 

Heading into the holiday season, we couldn’t think of anyone better to have as our featured bride for December than Lorenza. She and Pete celebrated saying “I do” on an enchanted winter’s day at the New York Botanical Garden. Here, Lorenza shares the first part of their love story.

Proposal & Planning 

In a time when casual dating via social apps is like a sport, Lorenza wanted something with more substance. Looking back, she says, “It was the busiest time of my professional career.
