University Club New York Wedding
The University Club is an architectural landmark in NYC, famous for its extraordinary library and coveted as a wedding location. Sometimes it is exceedingly difficult for couples to gain access to this treasured space, but nothing but the best was to be considered for Kate and John. Against a backdrop of historical significance, their wedding photos are rich with classical luxury, timelessness, and an air of confident permanence.
Chiaki believes that the moments spent getting ready are a very special time to behold for the bride. They are so often imbued with emotional and dramatic moments only accessible to her and those who were standing close at the time. Like a breath held in anticipation of what is to come, these moments are gone in an instant but encapsulated in a photograph for eternity to recall.
As Kate dressed, her mom lovingly covered her face with a chiffon fabric to protect her precious wedding gown and to keep Kate’s makeup perfect. This made for a unique and highly personal moment between mother and bride, resulting in an iconic image that reveals deep emotional introspect amid the pre-wedding whirlwind.
Kate and John also have a deep and abiding love for their dog, who waited patiently outside the eminent Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on Park Ave. for his special photo moment.
The images capture the couple’s emotional journey from betrothed to married, every sweet and spectacular detail highlighting the joy, excitement, and contentment of their day.
