laura & danny / houston hall manhattan wedding

Chaz Cruz

I love hanging with Laura and Danny, all we do is crack jokes and drink beers. So their wedding day was the same, except we were all dressed up a little more than usual. Their wedding was designed by the fabulous Tinsel & Twine and they added the extra vibes to Houston Hall. Pop on over to Grey Likes Weddings to see their feature with more details. Also, a big thanks to Sheena of Unique Lapin for shooting this along side me.

diana & carlos / true / the foundry long island city wedding

Chaz Cruz

When couples become true friends, we all gain so much more than memories. We create even more memories together past the wedding day. Diana and Carlos' wedding was one for the books, as soon as I walked into the room I knew it was going to be special. Diana brought together an all-star team to encapsulate her vision. With the design by Diana herself, florals by Ivie Joy, calligraphy by Written Word Calligraphy and all housed at The Foundry in Long Island City. Manning the second camera for me was Silvia Foz and with cinematography by A&Y, we collaborated on some amazing visuals. Also, see the feature on Green Wedding Shoes to see more details as well as the other vendors who helped put together this beautiful wedding.

christine & ted / five dates / 26 bridge brooklyn wedding

Chaz Cruz

Five dates. Five dates was the challenge that Christine and Ted's pastor issued to them to see if they were made for each other. And as you can see, they were. Along with the incomparable Jove Meyer, we descended upon DUMBO and 26 Bridge for one of the most gorgeous weddings I've ever been a part of. With the team of Kim Marcelo, A.P. Bio, and Real Food Catering, we were honored to grace the August/September issue of Brides Magazine. 

kat & allan / four by four

Chaz Cruz

Allan was one of the first friends I made in New York back in 2010 and we've been tight ever since. We've done a lot together in the last 6 years and him and Kat were actually instrumental in introducing me to Natalie, who is now my fiancée. So to say I love these two and owe them a lot is an understatement. With Kat and Allan being together for over 10+ years, when he told me he was ready to marry Kat, I knew my gift for them would be to photograph their wedding and portraits.

Natalie and I headed over to Kat and Allan's place in Clinton Hill where I photographed them getting ready and Natalie started with Kat's hair and makeup. With Kat working as a designer at Steve Madden, her shoes were specially designed just for the wedding.  After their first look, we headed out on a rainy day in April to head to the marriage bureau in Manhattan. Joined by his awesome bosses and friends from the showroom he works at, Nutty Rice, we celebrated their love. A few days later, we went over to Black Bear Bar in Williamsburg to party even more, it was the perfect wedding for a perfect pair.
