Start by liking the Lovers Rock Facebook page, then just come out and enjoy the fun!
Portrait sessions will be limited to the first 20 couples.
Couples only. All are welcome.
First come, first serve.
At the corner of Little West 12th and 9th Avenue in the Meatpacking District
On Sunday, February 12th, 3:00 pm will begin the portrait sessions.
February 14th (2pm): We will post 4 images of each couple (1 per photographer) to Lovers Rock Facebook page. At this time, you, your friends and family are invited to “like” (i.e. vote) for selected images.
February 19th (9pm): The couple with the most votes from all 4 images will receive a lifestyle photo-session with the photographer of their choice. Session must be completed by June 30th, 2012 (a $600-$1200 value) subject to availability.

Courtney and Evan’s wedding events took place in the town of Stamford, Connecticut, which is where the bride's family resides. The church where the couple was married, Saint Cecilia Parish, holds very strong sentimental and emotional history for Courtney as her grandparents were married there years ago. Courtney and Evan chose to do a first look prior to the ceremony as well as portraits with their families and bridal party. It was an incredibly hot day but both took the heat in stride and enjoyed being photographed. Their ceremony was somber and beautiful as the minister from Courtney’s childhood officiated. After a full mass, guests were received at Madonia Restaurant, owned by a family friend, which was decorated from top to body with elegant lighting, delicate flower arrangements and cozy candle light. Guests enjoyed signature drinks and cigars during cocktail hour, followed by introductions, first dance, and toasts to the newlywed couple. After the cake cutting, the night continued with the hum of talk and laughter as guests wined and dined and enjoyed music and dance.

Dalla Nonna, which translates from Italian to "from the grandmother," is a modern, sweet and delicate NYC jewelry company designed by Rebecca Richards and Jessica Bohrer. Inspired by vintage pieces handed down from their mothers and grandmothers their collections are appropriately named portafortuna (googd luck charms), the little letter necklace and bracelet, and the calendar necklace and bracelet (so cute!). I am in LOVE! These would make awesome gifts for your bridesmaids as well as a token to yourself ;) How great to have a necklace that has your special day now forever close to your heart?! I want!
