Post Hurricane New York Wedding by Steve Lee Weddings

“Our wedding day can be compared to a clear sky, a rainbow and a bright sun that can be seen after a perfect storm,” says bride Akina. And that’s not just a metaphor. A week before her New York wedding to John (he’s from Houston but was living in Yokohama, Japan, at the time; she’s Japanese and was living in NYC), Hurricane Sandy devastated the city, putting the couple’s wedding, along with countless people’s lives, livelihoods and well-being, in very serious jeopardy. Yet somehow the couple’s determined out-of-town guests managed to get to the city safely and on time to enjoy the magnificently chic and warmly multicultural celebration of Akina and John’s true love. To document their perfect day, the pair brought top Houston photographer Steve Lee of Steve Lee Weddings/Khloe Madison to New York, where he captured this beautiful wedding in all its splendor—the pops of pink, the whimsical butterflies, the myriad Yoruban (the groom is a first-generation Nigerian-American) and Japanese elements that went into the couple’s festivities. We get tingles of joy—and, truth be told, a couple of tears in our eyes—looking at Lee’s photos of this magical day. No storm could keep these two apart, and, we are certain, no storm ever shall. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

  1. […] Today we have a very talented guest, Chris Do, who is an EXTRAordinary Event Designer.  Not only is she someone I know personally, but she also happens to be my God daughter.  I actually named a tutorial after her – the {CHRISTINE} Birdcage veil:).  I have watched this young lady mature and become an adult with a keen eye for fashion and creating amazing spaces.  Because of this, I am not surprised at how beautiful the multicultural New York wedding she coordinated would turn out.  Her work made it into the Weddings In Houston Magazine Blog.  You can read more about the wedding by clicking {here}.
