Miya is one of my dearest friends. Her talent brings a fresh eye and thoughtful design to everything she touches. Photographing her work the greatest joy. She is behind one of my favorite personal shoots and the illustrated “C” in my branding. When Miya asked me to photograph her wedding day, there was no doubt her celebration with Matthew would be filled with kind, sweet, intimate moments in a space that dreams are made of.
Enjoy Miya and Matthew’s gorgeous wedding featured on Martha Stewart Weddings.

Stephanie and Chris designed their wedding day keeping in mind the cities and countries that had been host to special moments throughout their relationship. They went with an old-world-European-meets-modern aesthetic, with bold décor set against the Swan House’s aged stone façade and overgrown foliage.

An aisle dotted with potted greenery led to a birchwood chuppah, where Margot and Drew said “I do”. Post ceremony, guests indulged in Jewish fare in the form of open-faced Reuben sandwiches and Westwood’s famous cheese bagels. For cocktails “Nothing makes Drew happier than a frozen pina colada,” Margot says of treating guests to tropical and watermelon-basil drinks. In a move that caught her groom completely off guard, Margot invited one extra guest to the alfresco cocktail hour: a Clydesdale horse. “My favorite memory of the day was when Drew caught sight of the surprise,” Margot says.
