Sydney had contacted me about a year before her wedding. She was so sweet and enthused about her marriage to Derek, and about the wedding in general, it was just contagious. I met her on a trip to New York months before the wedding, and I could just see the excitement in her eyes. I think her excitement was not only contagious to me but to all of her friends and family that attended the wedding. Everyone there just seemed so extremely happy to be there and so happy for these two sweethearts to marry one another.
Sydney made her wedding day preparations at McCarren Hotel, just a few blocks away from MyMoon. The weather the entire week before had predicted thunder storms, but luckily we were blessed with a beautiful day full of sunshine. The girls had a view of the McCarren pool, which was a happening place on this hot summer day.
