Rita and Matthew’s black tie wedding was held at the scenic Blue Hill at Stone Barns. There is a deep sense of history and rustic elegance when you’re on this property. Ira loves shooting at this wonderful location where Nature meets Culture.
There were so many great details about this day; Rita was radiant in her Oscar de la Renta gown, the farm was peaceful and vibrant, and we took a particular liking to the bright red socks Matthew and his groomsmen donned.
From their honeymoon in Bali, Rita sent these kinds words:
“Ira, It’s almost 1am in Bali and only the sound of Matt’s voice saying we have an email from Ira could have roused me out of my sleep.
We feel extremely lucky having just got to relive our whole wedding day through these photos- THANK YOU SO MUCH. The photos do an amazing job-capturing the emotions of joy and happiness we cannot express in words. You and the rest of your team are incredible photographers and people and we couldn’t be more honored and grateful that you captured our special day. Thank you for making it fun and for enabling and encouraging us to be in the moment every second.”
Rita and Matthew, thank YOU for sharing this extraordinary day with us.
