A few months back, I met up with Arzu to talk about her wedding that she was planning in 2 months! Knowing how much goes into planning a wedding I really didn’t know how she was going to do it on her own (Simon was away for 6 months working in Montreal) but after the first 10 mins of chatting I knew that it was going to be no problem for her, she’s so super organized and open minded that she had pretty much had everything planned already. I was very impressed to say the least. The more she told me about her wedding, the more excited I got! Especially since her matron of honour was Genevieve (who’s beautiful winter wedding I photographed back in January), it was definitely going to be a great day filled with lots of amazing people! However, a week later, Arzu told me that the wedding had to be pushed to September because of family reasons, so it was back to square one in terms of planning. Luckily, I was available for her new date so that was one less thing for her to worry about. Arzu and Simon ended up tying the knot at the beautiful Miller Lash House during sunset, it was so intimate and romantic!Hot ladies and handsome Simon with his 2 boys 🙂Cuties peeking out before the ceremony.I always love seeing the groom’s reaction as he sees his bride for the first time.This was a first for me, a kiss at the start of the ceremony, lots more of this as the day went on 😉Arzu had mentioned that Simon’s not a big fan of taking photos but we snuck away for a few minutes anyway to capture their love and natural chemistry together. I barely directed them, just photographed them enjoying their first few moments as newlyweds alone.Loved all the sleek and elegant details they put into their wedding and the NYC theme for their seating chart, one of my fave cities in the world!Arzu and Simon, you guys are such a beautiful couple inside and out! Your love for each other is undeniable and I feel so honoured to have documented that. I wish you guys and your family nothing but love and happiness in your future together, so just carry on as you are now 🙂 Also, thanks again Genevieve for connecting Arzu and I, you were a fantastic MOH! You were there for her all day from the little things like answering her phone to the big things like comforting her when she was stressed. Every girl needs a good friend like you to lean on!
