Angelica and Ilya were joined by close to 200 guests for their Russian Jewish wedding in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn.
We started the day with photos of the bride as she got ready with her bridesmaids and then stepped into a dazzling ball gown wedding dress. Her father couldn’t help getting emotional when he laid eyes on the beautiful bride.
Angelica and Ilya took their first look photos at the Sheepshead Bay Canal and then we hopped into a limo to the Brooklyn Museum and the always beautiful Brooklyn Botanical Garden for some gorgeous shots with the couple and their bridal party.
The bridesmaids all looked radiant in red, while the men accented their suits with red bowties and vests.
Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place at Chinar Restaurant, where Angelica and Ilya exchanged their vows underneath an elegant all-white huppah. The reception began with the traditional Hora, followed by the couple’s first dance together. Angelica made sure to take a moment to dance with her proud dad, while Ilya’s mom joined him on the dance floor for a touching moment.
