'We Can Finally Do This.'

I had the privilege of photographing Erika and Katy's intimate ceremony this past weekend, surrounded by their close friends and an officiant. Erika and Katy had been together for several years, and once gay marriage had been legalized in NYS, had planned to bring together friends and family to celebrate their union officially. It was an emotional ceremony, with Katy's mom on FaceTime watching over their vows, and not a dry eye in the house. The evening concluded with a party at their favorite bar in DUMBO, Long Island Restaurant.
