Words. They're hard to come by for this one. Honored would be one for starters. Kristi and Matt brought me all the way out to New York City to document the story of their love and their journey together. And my goodness, was it one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Everything from the looks on their faces when they first saw each other in that park, to Matt's words and song prior to the beginning of the ceremony, to the incredible historic barn at Old Bethpage on Long Island that they were whisked to following the ceremony at the church that Kristi's Dad pastors in Queens, to the song that Matt and his friends wrote and serenaded her with to finish off the reception. Every moment beautiful in its own indescribable way. When someone flies you out to document their wedding, there's a certain special trust that's there. Something I'll never ever take for granted. It was the first (and hopefully not last) trip to NYC for both my wife and I, just a cherry on the top to a perfect weekend spent with new friends that I'll never forget. So without further ado, get to know Matt and Kristi. I think you'll be glad you did.
