MONTAUK WEDDING

Chellise and I met Jenny 8 years ago when we moved to New York. She owned the bar two doors down from our apartment building (54 steps, but who’s counting?). We would stop in from time to time for a spicy margarita and a hello. As the story goes, one day, Chris walked in the bar for a job interview and Instead of leaving the bar with a job, he left with Jenny’s telephone number. Hubba hubba. They spent the next years painting portraits of each other, gambling in Atlantic City and worshiping the moon. Since then, Chris found a job, and occasionally makes gumbo for Jenny’s bar. Jenny painted the most exquisite depiction of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell which sold for millions of dollars, and they got married on the beach of Montauk with 40 of their favorites. Luckily, they let me capture the shenanigans for them :)

So happy to have been a part of this with you… endless thank you’s.

-Mike

So how 'bout we start with the party? Seems appropriate.
