Real wedding: Heather + Russ

Jennifer MacFarlane photography 4

Cool can’t even begin to describe this wedding that photographer Jennifer MacFarlane sent over last week…all tradition was thrown out the door for a totally unique event!  I’ll let her tell you more…

The vendors were all friends and friends of the family. Russ is a photographer from Staten Island and Heather is a dancer from Queens. The ceremony and receptions took place at the NYC Fire Museum.

Another highlight, which you can see in the photos, is when Russ broke the glass and brought the whole chupah down on the officiant….which made for one of the funniest photos of my career!
The highlight of the night was Russ and Heathers 1st dance which started with a choreographed dance to “I had the time of my life” from Dirty Dancing, mid song the record scratched and to the reggae dancehall favorite “Lyrical Gangsta” then to Heavy D’s “Now that we’ve found love”.  Each second the dance moves getting saucier and sillier…which set a precedent for the rest of the night!
