Alessandra and Nikitas’ Greek Wedding

Weddings are about family… fundamentally, they are about creating a new family – a new beginning – between the bride and groom.  It is about bringing their two families together.  At last weekend’s wedding, those family connections were just the tip of the iceberg.

The presence of family was overwhelming at Alessa & Nik’s wedding.  The bridal party was made up of siblings & those friends so close they may as well be blood… The ceremony featured the groom’s father chanting the traditional Greek songs, and even the desserts were lovingly baked by the bride’s family (and boy were they delish!).

But with all of the elements of family throughout their wedding, there was another aspect that made this wedding special… this bride, being Gabriella’s sister, is a part of the Kim Ponsky Photography family… no pressure there!  ha!

I loved getting to see Gabriella and her sister’s crazy close relationship through my camera.  To see the tears of joy in their eyes as they acknowledged what a special day this was… or even the bittersweet tears in Gab’s eyes as she realized how her sister’s life was taking her (and their shared wardrobe) away from her.  These two are about as close as sisters could be, and the amount of love visible between them, and the rest of their newly extended family was palpable.  I was excited and honored to get to be a part of this crazy Greek and Italian family for the day, and capture what I know to be a day they will never forget.

Kim & Kenny Get Married: Preview

It’s the wedding you’ve all been waiting for… Kim got married this weekend! In the weeks leading up to the big day everyone kept asking who does a photographer get to photograph her wedding? Gabriella and me of course! We were so happy to capture the beautiful day for such a beautiful lady! It was extra special to see someone we spend almost every day with so happy. We know everyone is eager to see the images from this past weekend, so Gab and I have chosen a few of our favorites as a sneak peek below. Keep your eyes open for more to come!DSC_0947 DSC_0937 DSC_1295DSC_1948  DSC_2786

Amanda and Adam’s Wedding at the 9

There’s not too much I need to say about the wedding I got to photograph this past weekend other than… stunning.  Adam and Amanda were pretty much picture perfect, and the venue was the most incredible setting for the dramatic nature that they wanted for their wedding photos.  We didn’t even need to brave the crazy heat and humidity because there was no reason to leave the Vault at the 9.  There is so much I could say about this spectacular wedding, but I figured I’d let the images speak for themselves…

Stacy & Adrian’s Wedding

This past weekend Gabriella and I had the pleasure of photographing Stacy and Adrian’s Cleveland wedding. These two have really great luck with weather! During a summer full of rain and with beautiful days few and far between, not only did Stacy and Adrian have a gorgeous day for their engagement shoot (see the pics here), but their wedding took place on one of the sunniest days thus far! Despite the horrible heat, this bridal party brought their A-game from one location to the next. Because photography was a priority, Stacey and Adrian allocated enough time to go to multiple places and were willing to do anything we asked of them… leading to some pretty awesome wedding photos! Take a look below to see some of our favorites from their wedding day. Congrats you guys!

Courtney & Seth’s Wedding Preview

Yesterday was perfection… the weather, the couple, and the wedding.  Everything ran smoothly, and the ease and grace of the day come through in the photos.  Sharon, Gabriella and I were all on hand to chronicle the big day for this beautiful couple, and could hardly point the camera in their direction without capturing a stunning image.  Pieter Bouterse Studio transformed Park Synagogue into a dream, and the Jerry Bruno Orchestra kept the party going.  I can’t wait to continue to peruse the many many images we captured yesterday, but for now here are a a bunch of my favorites…
