Face à la skyline de Manhattan, ils ont échangé leurs voeux d’amour éternel. Au fil de l’eau, ils se sont rencontrés sur un ferry. Au pied d’un Phare, il lui a demandé sa main au pied lors d’une escapade à Portland. Jusqu’à cette fabuleuse journée de Juillet où ils ont réuni leurs plus proches dans cet incroyable Loft industriel au bord de l’eau. Quel plus beau décor pour un mariage ?
Avec les belles images d’Alex Tome, Shelly nous raconte…
How you met for the first time?
We met on a ferry boat coming back from a beer festival from Governors Island back to Manhattan.
I noticed Daniel taking photo’s with a very impressive camera and told my friends that I thought he was cute. They called him over to take our photo and the rest is history!
Daniel proposed on a mini getaway in Portland, Maine.
It was our last day on our trip and we stopped by a lighthouse and he proposed on a cliff by the water.
He pretended to set the camera on a timer to take a photo but he had set to video! So he recorded the whole thing!
The spot of the wedding
The Greenpoint Loft in Greenpoint Brooklyn
Daniel and I were living abroad in Abu Dhabi during our engagement, then moved back and planned the wedding within the year we moved back to New York. Lots of hard work as we most of the planning and decorations ourselves.

Your best memories
Wedding – the best memory from the wedding was being able to say « I Do » in front of everyone we cared about. Being able to share the happiest day of our lives with the people closest to us was a blessing!
And if you have to do it again?
If we had to do the whole wedding again, I would give myself more time for everything! More time for planning, more time for everything involved the day of! Everything goes by so quickly!
Do & Don’t
Always remember to enjoy yourself and not to stress out about things that my not always go your way. No need to stress yourself out for a day that should be the happiest day of your life!
