Halo LIC is a luxury apartment/condo building located in Long Island City (home of pet owners). Halo LIC offers several buyout locations for their residence to host events. Because 2020 is such a crazy year for couples planning to get married, some were forced to cut guest lists down to 50 or less and plana last minute a mini/micro-wedding.
Despite last-minute changes and converting a full-size wedding to a micro wedding, this couple decided to book private spaces at their home’s rooftop and invite their favorite people in the world to join them as they celebrate their marriage. It was an intimate DIY wedding! Full of furry friends, great music, panoramic views, and dancing all night long! All the DIY decor was made by Lisa and her mother.

The bridal party got ready in the salon suite at HALO LIC and the groomsmen got ready a few blocks away at the local Hilton in LIC.
The rooftop at HALO LIC offers sweeping views of New York City and a perfect spot for sunset wedding photos! I love how the couple included their fur babies at their wedding ceremony. How can you not love?!
After a late start to their ceremony, we agreed not to take too much time taking portraits as they wanted to be with their guests as long as possible. Here’s a few creative wedding portraits around HALO LIC.
“Just the sneak peek give me butterflies. No one had their phones out. Everyone was just finally letting loose and living in the moment and enjoying each others company. Miranda and her team managed to capture every single moment. Every person I spoke to the day after immediately said how amazing Miranda and Mike were, and how it seemed like they were in every place at once! Due to Covid, We had to replan our wedding with 5 weeks notice. It was chaos for sure. Her assistant Sara stepped up and took charge, she went above and beyond to help out with the little details so I could focus on getting ready and getting pictures. I was afraid that in all the chaos, we wouldn’t be able to capture all the best moments. But, Miranda was like a ninja, and just by the sneak peeks I saw she captured it all. I can only imagine what the others look like! Miranda you’re so insanely talented and I’m actually so happy that 2020 happened. You have a gift. An amazing gift. You give people a gift that will last their lifetime. This is no doubt your calling and I’m so happy for you that you’re pursuing this full time because you are meant to do this! I can never thank you enough. I can never recommend her enough! I have known several people who have used her before and everyone has the same feeling, she brings out the best in you. She brings out your confidence, and when you’re together as a couple, she brings out your love. It doesn’t feel like you have people staring at you. She somehow makes you both feel like it’s just the 2 of you. And now we have these moments that we can hold and look back on forever!” – The Knot
