FENDY & BENITO’S WEDDING HIGHLIGHT | NYC WEDDING CINEMATOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY | BY OLLI STUDIO

“This is a great day, and it’s not just a great day because we get to celebrate with friends and family – and to rejoice with people that we love. Even more, it’s a great day because we have an opportunity to praise God and to bring him glory. Marriage is the gift of God, given for our joy and our comfort. It is a great gift and a unique opportunity to model a deeper reality that is the love Jesus Christ has for his Bride – and laid down his life for her. So we’re here today to celebrate love. The love between Fendy and Benny, yes, and what they’re love reflects. That is the love that God has for his people, his Bride.” Opening words that welcomed loved ones to the sacred union of Fendy & Benny. To say this day was filled to the brim with gratitude, love and prayer, would be an understatement. This Bride & Groom glowed from the inside out, radiating pure joy and happiness for all that’s been, and for all that’s to come together as a couple. They exchanged vows, pledging life-long commitment to one another – and they did so in style. Fendy looked stunning in a voluminous, strapless, ball gown with a matching floor length veil. The delicate beaded belt, and diamond cross worn around her neck, completed the Bride’s look. Benny, handsome as ever, was dressed in a light grey tux with matching vest and a baby pink bow tie. To complement the main attraction, F&B had a wedding party that were ever so chic. For a greater glimpse into this couple’s special day, go ahead and click play!

GROOMS SHOULD LOOK PRETTY TOO! | NYC WEDDING BLOGGING

GROOMS SHOULD LOOK PRETTY TOO! | NYC WEDDING BLOGGING

Stereotypes say that women are often more high maintenance than men when it comes to their Wedding Day. I beg to differ. I’ve met grooms who are equally enthused about the BIG day, sometimes even more so than the bride. They’re clear on what their overall wedding will look like, and surprisingly enough, put a lot of time in to picking out the right wedding outfit. However, for those couples where the above mentioned societal stigma may ring true, below are a few basic tips to help you find that perfect suit or tuxedo.

1) Purchase vs. Rental: For some, this is a no brainer – but for many, they have no clue what to do. I’m probably only going to wear this once and then stuff it in a closet somewhere. Well, that’s not always true – so my advice is to purchase your tux. You can never go wrong, as it is tailor-made to fit you, and only you. Rental tuxedos are usually ill fitting, and let’s face it, someone else already wore it for their special day. Why should you share that with them?!

2) Custom Designed vs. Store Bought: No matter what the choice, you can’t go wrong. However, a custom designed suit is always a tad bit chicer, and just has a special touch to it. Also, if budget is an issue, note that custom designed suits can start as low as $500.

3) Corporate vs. In Style: Though your reception may take place at a venue used for meetings during the day, you should NEVER look like you’re heading to the boardroom on your BIG day. Opt for a more in style tuxedo option. Pick up the latest issue of GQ Magazine or hit up some Pinterest Boards for inspiration. Remember, have fun with your lapel!

Be sure to research local tuxedo and suit designers. It may also be a good idea to have your groomsmen custom make their suits as well. Many designers give a special price to bulk orders – and it’ll also ensure that the overall loom of your wedding party is cohesive.

MARSHA & CARL’S SAVE THE DATE FILM | NYC SAVE THE DATE CINEMATOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY | BY OLLI STUDIO

“I just know that he’s the perfect man for me!” Marsha stated plainly, with a loving smile on her face. This past year her birthday marked the two year anniversary of this adorable duo’s first date. Her soon-to-be husband, Carl, planned an extravagant 12-day trip to Paris, where the two were to soak up the European culture and make new memories together. Little did she know that on the eve of their last night – and her birthday – would she experience one of her greatest life memories to date, by breathing one word, “Yes!” Just a few short weeks ago, Olli had the pleasure of capturing Marsha & Carl’s love story on film. Starting off casual, dressed in a chic yet relaxed look, the two gushed about one another whilst sitting pond side in CENTRAL PARK. Thereafter, M&C switched things up with a gorgeous form-fitting, deep blue gown for her, and a pink dress shirt, black bow-tie and matching suspenders for him. They were picture perfect as they strolled through the streets of NYC for their sweet Save the Date Film! For a peek, scroll below and click play!

“Jennifer and James, remember to treat yourselves and each other with respect and love. And remind yourselves often what brought you here together today. Take responsibility for making the other one feel safe and feel loved. Give the highest priority to the tenderness, the gentleness and the kindness that your connection deserves.” Wise and moving words shared by the officiant to the Bride & Groom on their special day. On a perfectly sunny Sunday afternoon in June on the waterfront in Westport, Connecticut, this darling duo united as one in love and friendship. The affair was intimate including only those nearest and dearest to J&J. THE INN AT LONGSHORE provided comfort, class and an air of fairytale romance for the memorable occasion.

KEI & MARK’S WEDDING HIGHLIGHT | NYC WEDDING CINEMATOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY | BY OLLI STUDIO

On June 14, 2015, at a restored 19th Century raw space boasting an indoor greenhouse and lush outdoor courtyard and rooftop terrace, Kei & Mark renewed their vows and commitment to one another through the sanctity of marriage. The setting was picture-perfect for such a spectacularly momentous life-event! The atmosphere dancing with vibrations of magic, romance and sensuality was further charged when the Bride made her debut. As if she had come straight from the pages of a fairytale, Kei looked like a modern Arabian Princess dressed for her Prince. Wearing a muted-gold strapless ball gown with tiers of voluminous scalloped tulle, this dark haired beauty was striking to say the least. Kei chose to pair her smokey-eyed look with a slicked-back high ponytail, allowing her long mane to flow freely behind her. To complete the vision, a matching bejewelled headpiece with a delicate bead rested just above her eyes. Stunning! As for her Prince Charming? Well, he was mesmerized!

WEDDING BAND SELECTION TIPS | NYC WEDDING BLOGGING

WEDDING BAND SELECTION TIPS | NYC WEDDING BLOGGING

Choosing the right engagement ring is hard enough, so you would think that purchasing a wedding band wouldn’t be as difficult. Well, you’re right. Of course, only if you let me guide you in the right direction. Here are a few Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to your wedding band selection:

1) Matching is cool for newborn twins or Junior High School besties, but not for newlyweds. Make sure your bands are a reflection of your own individual styles. Besides, it’s not like you leave the house each morning wearing matching outfits – at least I hope not.

2) Though you don’t want to buy the exact same rings, be sure that they have at least one element that’s along the same lines. For instance, a similar engraving is always a nice touch, or even stones of the same shape. Some may differ, but I think at the very least, they should be of the same metal.

3) Speaking of metals, make sure your engagement ring and wedding band are made of the same metal, too. It makes for a more cohesive and clean look. Not to mention, metals change with time. When they’re new, they may look the same but as they age, their color will change.

4) We know you’re fancy and may like the finer things in life, but please do not choose a band that overpowers your engagement ring. You want to wear these bands together, and your engagement ring should always be the statement piece. Think of the band as a beautiful complementary accent piece.

Before I forget, just a quick reminder that although I love eternity bands, especially those with diamonds or other stones around it, it is difficult to have it resized should you lose or gain weight. Just some food for thought. No pun intended. Until next time

SYLVIA & RICK

SYLVIA & RICK

Sylvia and Rick looked super sweet as they embraced one another while strolling along THE HIGH LINE giggling as they went. OLLI had the pleasure of capturing this adorable duo on camera for their Engagement Session last week – and oh what fun! It was a perfect late-summer evening with comfortable temps and a magnificently memorable sunset. Making their way through the Chelsea neighborhood, it was fitting for them to stop by the eclectic CHELSEA MARKET for a dose of the uplifting energy from the surrounding hustle-and-bustle. S&R were certainly able to ‘play as if no one was watching’ – their love radiated right through the camera lens! We can’t wait to celebrate the newly weds on their Wedding Day next April! XOXO
