Jewel tones and pure happiness at The Metropolitan Building, New York

Moody vibes and lots of sparkle at The Metropolitan Building

share /


I don’t often play favorites, but I think The Metropolitan Building has to be labeled as one of mine. Everything about that venue is just total photogenic perfection. The light! The saturated colors! The perfectly imperfect textures and antique furniture! What a delight! Then, when you add in a couple with equisite taste and wonderful energy like Rachel + Adam, you have so many opportunities to create the kinds of photos that are just a dream. Rachel’s Lihi Hod dress absolutely glistened in the light the florals by Xylem + Ploem were like nothing I’ve seen before; so delicate and lush.  A sweltering day couldn’t stop the magic between these two.


On Dacia:
Our wedding day was in the midst of an insane heatwave…This easily could have created a frantic, stressful atmosphere, but thanks to Dacia, we were all able to make the best of it and totally enjoy ourselves. Dacia exhibited constant cheer, calming presence, and professional demeanor. Her organization and conviviality kept us grounded, laid-back, and most importantly, ourselves. She was an absolute delight to work with. I don’t think anyone else could’ve kept my husband and I as relaxed and high-spirited as Dacia did. I credit Dacia for playing the largest part in creating our euphoric, enchanted mood.

On our photos:
Dacia is the definition of a true artist. Our photos are stunning. In addition to capturing every detail of the wedding, she captured every poignant moment too. The vibe that emanates from the photos so perfectly reflects the mood of our wedding that just by looking at the shots, you feel as if you are there. Her shots, angles and lighting made us feel like we were in a Vogue photoshoot! But the expressions and glances she captured of me and my husband are purely us. This mixture of true artistic talent with an innate ability to bring out the true essence of her subjects are what makes Dacia so unique and special. We can’t sing her praises enough.
