Angel Orensanz Wedding and Old St. Patricks Cathedral Wedding – Wedding Photography by Josh Wong

Wedding at Angel Orensanz and Old St. Patricks Cathedral – Wedding Photography by Josh Wong
Pina & Alex

Getting Ready Location: Rivington Hotel
Ceremony: St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral
Reception: Angel Orensanz

The first time I met Pina and Alex was at the AS2YP Winter Event back in January 2010 as both of them and myself are supporters of Autism Speaks. As the house photographer for the event, my job was to capture great moments of people mingling and having a great time. As I was patrolling the room, I couldn’t help but notice a group of people that were having such a fun time. This group that I happened to stumble upon…. yes you called it….was Pina, Alex and their amazing friends! The image below, taken at SL Lounge in New York City, is the first image that I ever took of Pina and Alex and their wild bunch.

And since then, and (I believe) 5 more AS2YP events later they’ve become huge fans of my photography. And whoever is a fan of mine, I’m also a fan of theirs so when Pina contacted me last October to be her wedding photographer, I was truly honored. When the wedding day finally arrived it was so wonderful to see so many of those same people that I originally took a picture of 3 years ago. This group may be a bit older and probably a little wiser in the past three years but were just as great and fun to be around. On the wedding day, Pina and the bridesmaids all got ready at the Rivington Hotel in the Lower East Side (LES) while the groomsmen got ready at Alex’s place. When I got to the hotel, they were all drinking, eating and having a grandiose time.

The Rivington Hotel was a perfect “getting ready” location. The uniqueness of this boutique hotel and the close proximity to Old St. Patrick’s and Angel Orensanz was ideal. You can actually see Angel Orensanz from the balcony of the hotel. Pina wore a gorgeous wedding dress by Anne Barge which highlighted a beautiful pair of Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes. The bridesmaids wore elegant plum colored Monique Lhuillier bridesmaid dresses.

For the “First Look”, Pina and Alex asked me for a really cool and edgy spot. Rather than a typical garden park or hotel lobby which is used in a typical “reveal’, I pitched to them the famous graffiti building in the LES. They were ecstatic with the idea.  The artistic graffiti littered walls and grungy look match their style perfectly.

The wedding ceremony took place at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. It’s high vaulted ceilings and grand organ provided a picturesque setting. After the ceremony, everyone was shuttled away to Angel Orensanz where the dinner reception and party took place. This was the dream location where everyone was waiting to get to. Angel Orensanz, in the LES is one of my favorite places to photograph. The lighting and the Gothic Revival style architecture is stunning and every photographer’s dream. Every time I photograph there, it never ceases to amaze me.

Below are just a few of my many favorite images from the wedding. Be sure to check out the video montage for all the amazing images. Enjoy!
