Their are certain milestones in your life that stand out above others. Getting married, having a child and graduating from a good school are a few of the biggest. These accomplishments can often be as stressful as they are satisfying. People recommend you space these major events out, but Casey and Ehren are doing them all at the same time.
When the couple found out Casey was pregnant they had under 4 months to plan an entire wedding. That’s the kind of pressure that freezes a lot of people. But, with the help of their family and friends they not only pulled it together, they did it with style.
The most impressive thing about the whole day was just how relaxed Casey and Ehren were. They were positive, always had a smile on their faces and never stressed.
Casey and Ehren had their wedding at Tribeca Rooftop. This New York wedding venue is one of our favorites and has stunning views of the city. Casey and Ehren took full advantage of the venue. Saying their vows at sunset with the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.
One of the things most important to the father of the bride was getting some killer drone footage. Anyone that flies drones knows that NYC is about the most daring place to fly a drone so we brought in Daniel Herbert from SkyGear Solutions who did an amazing job.

Katy and Daniel didn’t choose The Pierre Hotel just for the classic setting and beautiful ballroom. The venue is very special to the couple because Katy’s grandparents were married there 70 years ago. It’s rare that you can find this kind of emotional attachment to a place and we knew we had to make it the intro to their story.
We also had the pleasure of working with a team of awesome professionals. Justin from Brian Dorsey Photography, Michael Hart Band from Hank Lane Music and planner Brett Cameron were all great creative partners on the day.
At the reception that night we noticed two of the toasts talked heavily about life working out differently than expected. This wasn’t a narrative we had planned going into the wedding, but it became clear that it was a big part of Katy and Daniel’s story. We used this idea as the backbone of the teaser and it even provided the title of the film. We hope you enjoy The Stuff of Life.

Alison and Timothy chose one of the most prestigious hotels on Long Island to get married at…the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, New York. And the reason why? Alison told us that they loved the beach and New York City so it would make perfect sense to pick a venue with gorgeous ocean views and the NYC skyline. One problem…. they woke up to the early signs of a hurricane raging outside on the day of their wedding, but this didn’t stop their positive outlook.
While filming the ceremony, we were completely taken by surprise when the fire alarm went off, as if on cue, right in the middle of their vows. Alison and Timothy could have lost it, but instead they burst out in laughter along with the audience and carried on. These are the type of clients we love to work with, and if there’s one thing we love here at Pennylane, it’s when things don’t go as planned like Alison and Timothy’s wedding.

Wedding at Guastavino’s | New York
We had the pleasure of filming at Guastavino’s in New York City last month for the first time. The first thing we noticed was that the staff was first-class all the way, even down to the sound engineer who made sure we got clean audio for the ceremony and reception.
Early in the day, Jay got a little surprise from his soon-to-be-wife Jamie, when (his favorite) Luke’s lobster rolls were delivered to his hotel. Of course he had to get Jamie back with a delivery of cookies from Magnolia’s Bakery, but the bride was on to him right away.
Somewhere between the guys drinking Bulleit Bourbon and trying to tie their bow ties, we were plotting out where the first look would take place with talented photographer Chris Owyoung from Brian Dorsey Studios. This was also the first time we worked with Chris and he was great. It’s always a pleasure to work with Brian Dorsey and his associates.
Jamie had explained that they never even stepped foot inside the venue when they booked it. Because they were from California, her parents went down to see it in person and gave the couple their seal-of-approval. We agree. Sit back and watch this beautiful highlight film of Jamie and Jay.
