Audubon Greenwich Wedding#BelieveInFilm

Audubon Greenwich is a sanctuary for birds, a beautiful territory of wild meadows and luscious trees. A lovely place to hold an intimate wedding celebration. That day was poetry. Weather – seductively dreamy. Rain – fragrant and musical.  Fog – mesmerizing. And those fleeting moments of twilight as we ran through the misty fields, like children – happy, free. I could have imagined it, but it was real.

Congratulations to Alex and Josh and a big thank you to this magical place.

The Mayan ceremony in Tulum

Fours years ago today, on a beach of Tulum, I have witnessed a traditional Mayan wedding ceremony full of magic and mysticism. Amidst the sacred smoke from the Copal tree, we all stood there barefoot surrounding the bride, the groom and the altar, built of flowers and traditional offerings to Gods – corn, beans, rice, fruit. The offerings were to represent the gifts of prosperity and fertility. The Shaman was blowing the conch shell horn to evoke the four elements: water, earth, wind and fire, so that their presence may strengthen and bless the union for many years.

Happy anniversary to these two beautiful beings who continue to roam the world and inspire me and others around them.

 

 

 

A Wedding Picnic in Old Westbury Gardens

This was the day Kelly and Carlos had their wedding – a picnic with friends and family, just at the beginning of summer.

And what I remember is the endless neon-green orchards fields.
White linens on the grass.
Birds, bees, wild flowers.
Walls covered with exotic drawings. Haunting. Inviting.
Beautiful women in floral dresses. Unfamiliar tongs. Seductive. Full of life.
The intimacy of vowels under the dome of an ancient, low-hanging evergreen.
Kelly walking barefoot.
Carlos levitating.
Moments of happy silence.

The beginning.

A love note to New York

Sharon and Vivian, who have been together for 16 years and have a 5-year old son, Rowan, have traveled from Florida to make their union official in City Hall this week.  And I got to photograph this special day.

Rowan was very proud and happy for his moms. That is until he lost his fancy shoes somewhere in Central Park…

PS I love you, New York!
