From the photographer, Sarah Tew Photography:
Kate & Charley have been together since they were students at Carleton College, and they are one of those couples that seem totally relaxed together -- you can just tell that they have each other’s back no matter what, it’s such a good fit. My thoughts were confirmed by the toasts we heard at their wedding at Housing Works Bookstore. They wanted to have a mid size yet intimate wedding with friends and family, many of whom came from the Midwest for the occasion, so they arranged a double-decker sightseeing bus to shuttle guests for a quick tour on the way from Blessed Sacrament, on the Upper West Side, down to the reception in Soho.
Michael Day's florals were perfect dressing for the long dinner tables. Event planning was handled beautifully by Amanda O’Callaghan of The Works Catering. During cocktail hour we were treated to the wonderful and romantic musical stylings of Lapis Luna… After dinner a more danceable playlist helped folks migrate to the dance floor! I was able to steal Kate and Charley for a quick night portrait towards the end of the evening… if I hadn’t needed to take my equipment back to studio I would have been tempted to join this crowd at their well-publicized after party.
