The morning was whimsical and our NYC couples were glowing with a radiating charm on their faces.

The faultlessly harmonizing gold sparkly sneakers, bridal heels, with a white hand clutch saying ‘Mrs. Pervez’ along with a white mask (a precautionary symbol) placed against the windows overlooking the greenery outside.
Our talented wedding photographers in New York did a remarkable job of framing detailed shots of the wedding rings placed above its zed black box on a rustic wooden surface in a portrait mode. They also captured a zoomed-in picture of the wedding rings placed before a retro-style brown framed sun-glasses (highlighting that Jacqueline is a fan of retro-style sun-glasses!).
