Ask almost any wedding professional and they will tell you that the Plaza Hotel in New York is basically the most iconic wedding venue of all time. In my mind, getting hired to design/plan/shoot a wedding here is a pinnacle career moment.
I am so happy to see this legendary location open its doors to same-sex couples. When you work in the wedding industry, you kind of get de-sensitized to all the mushy stuff, but this wedding video literally had me in tears (especially the footage of the ring bearer!)
This reminds me why I love weddings so much – in spite of all of the pain, sadness, disappointment and sometimes utter heartbreak that every person must face at one point or another, there is still so much beauty and joy in the world. While our differences may set us apart, love is what brings us together again, and if that’s not worth throwing a big fancy party for, I don’t know what is.
Mazel tov to this beautiful couple- I wish them a lifetime of blessings and happiness.
