Gillian & Mike’s New York City Wedding by Carla Ten Eyck

What can I say about Miss Gillan and her husband Mike? They are two of the most kind, and funny people I have met, and spending time with them from their engagement session to their wedding was so… easy. Effortless. Like we were old friends! We all laughed easily, and man-oh-man they were both so incredibly comfortable in front of my camera! OK, so they are also both actors, so yes, that has a little to do with it… lucky me! Their New York City wedding at the Manhattan Penthouse was so beautiful and was filled with well-wishing family and friends. My team for the day was Andrew Henderson and Ryan Lamb, thank you boys for all of the help driving (especially you Mr. Lamb omg!)  Their ceremony was at one of the most amazing churches I  have ever photographed at – St. Ignatius Loyola on Park Ave. 

The creative team for the day:

Gillian’s gown: Kenneth Poole
cake: Bruno’s Bakery
floral: Cress Floral Decorations
paper: Ceci New York
music: Dan Rosengard & Band
cinematography: the talented and super sweet Kaipo of 15 Minutes of Frame and his amazing team!

There is something about a winter wedding that is just so… elegant.

We did their first look right smack in the middle of Park Ave. Why not? Embrace where you are, I say!

I love working the streets of New York, and Gillian and her wedding party were so down for it!

This vintage cab Gillian and Mike got for their ride between the church and the reception was so. COOL! I had so much fun riding with them and stopping to shoot wherever we wanted! Which ended up being a good thing since there was so much traffic that night, paired with a little rain…! Which again, I took and ran with!

Our super amazing coordinators for the day, Michelle from Pink Monkey Events in NYC got us rooftop access for a small teeny window of time, and Kaipo and his team and me and Andrew and Ryan had to work our magic super quick! We had a BALL!
