I’m delighted to share that two of my images were selected to be included in the latest edition of The Knot New York Magazine 2019 Edition. A photo from Sarah and Calvin’s wedding at The Rainbow Room in New York City is on Page 26 and an interior photo of The Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club Reception Room is featured on Page 66. Thank you The Knot for including us! xo
When you live in New York City, you tend to not do a lot of touristy things or visit too many famous places because well, it's always crowded. I've lived in New York all of my life (minus my few months in Hong Kong) and have never visited Top of The Rock at Rockefeller Center until Asher and David's anniversary session. Boy, was I missing out! The sweeping city views were absolutely breathtaking! When my good friend Asher asked me to photograph her 5 year wedding anniversary session with her husband David, I was completely honored.
Asher is a wedding photographer as well and it's always an honor when another photographer asks you to photograph them. We woke up with sun and visited the famous steps of The Metropolitan Museum of Art before heading to Top of The Rock before it opened. There was already a line by 8 am so if you plan on visiting, get there early! Asher rented a stunning red dress (by my prompting!) from the Rent The Runway because red on film is absolutely incredible. So vibrant and magical if you ask me! Happy 5 years to Asher and David! Can't wait to see what the next 5 years have in store for you! xo - Jainé

On a crisp day in March, Sarah and Calvin were married in their beloved New York City. They said their wedding vows at the picturesque Brick Presbyterian Church on the Upper East Side before heading over to the iconic Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center. The couple fell in love with this stunning venue the moment the entered the elegant doors. It was a perfect match! Sarah and Calvin got ready separately at the Lotte NY Palace Hotel before they shared their private first look in the hotels perfectly manicured courtyard. The bride wore the most amazing wedding gown that was hand beaded with appliqué flowers by Amsale.
With the help and direction of Jove Meyer Events, the couple created a breathtaking reception inside the Rainbow Room. Designs by Ahn created tall and low centerpieces that transformed the room from gorgeous to incredible. Accents of gold, white and green cascaded throughout the guests tables. The happy couple shares a love of golf and each table number was named after a "tee" on the golf course. Such a sweet and very personal touch! The floral inspired 5 tiered wedding cake from Madison Lee Cakes was also a show stopper - almost too pretty to eat. Well, almost! One of my favorite aspects of the Rainbow Room is access to the private terrace. We took their bridal party and a few more Bride and Groom photos on the rooftop with the Empire State Building in the background. Absolutely breathtaking and classic New York City! Lots of laughter and tears of joy where shared throughout the reception and I'm thrilled to have been part of it. Congratulations to the happy couple!!
