I always ask my couples to share something fun about themselves in the contact form on my website because I think it really shows a lot about the type of people they are! Shari's response made me love them right away - "I secretly love Mariah Carey's music, and Adam is 100% a trooper for dealing with it." Girl, we all secretly love Mariah Carey! :)
I met Shari and Adam at their Upper East Side apartment for some gorgeous rooftop views! On a cloudy October day, it was a true blessing to see the sun show it's face for a few glorious minutes of magical light! Look at that beautiful glow behind them!
The couple enjoyed a favorite bottle of wine that they had been saving for a perfect occasion! This bottle was from the only vineyard to use grapes from both Napa Valley and Sonoma County. I don't even like red wine and I loooved this one!
We then walked to the famous William Greenberg Desserts for their signature Black & White cookies that have been voted #1 in NY! It was definitely the best Black & White I've ever had! Mmmmmmmmmm, should have bought like 15 to-go! Ya know...to, uh...share with friends. :)
We ended the session with a stroll through Central Park right as the sun disappeared and the street lamps turned on...it was magical!
Can't wait for your big day next year! It's going to be EPIC! xo! :)
