‘We Just Didn’t Care About the Weather.’

“My husband is from Moscow, so this weather was nothing for him. It was perfect snow”huge, dry flakes–and I was happy to put on my boots and walk. We went to Joe’s Shanghai in Chinatown for lunch because it was close to City Hall and we didn’t need reservations. Nothing’s better than soup dumplings on a day like that.” “Emily Shishkin, IT project manager, and Alxey Shishkin, finance manager, married January 2011 Photo: Dove + Sparrow Wedding Photography

“It was a glorious day in the Hudson Valley”until we started taking our formal photos. It was so windy, I wish I had brought a clamp to weigh down the veil. The photographer’s assistant tried to run in, pull it down, and quickly run out. Judging by this photo, it didn’t work.” “Anne Russo, fashion stylist, and Robert Russo, construction-project manager and Air Force Reserve major, married September 2009 Photo: 1. Art Beauty Life

“My husband is a big New Year’s Eve buff, and I love Central Park in the winter. So we thought, “What better way to bring in the new year?’ It snowed a lot leading up to the wedding, and by December 31, it was muddy. The wedding planner laid several white towels on the ground and tucked them under my dress so you couldn’t see them in our photos; she was more stressed about my dress getting ruined than I was!” “Michele Mangan and David Walsh, both bankers, married December 2010 Photo: Joshua Zuckerman Photography

“I remembered seeing these Kate Spade mittens and knew they’d be perfect”I had to fight for them on eBay. Kevin wasn’t wearing a coat, and he gave me a huge bear hug on the bridge. We’d been dating on and off for almost twenty years, since high school. On the inside of my ring he inscribed FINALLY, FOREVER.” “Kristen Kish, marketing communications director, and Kevin Ford, artist and teacher, married December 2010 Photo: Oh, Darling! Photography

“We live in Beijing and thought it would make a wonderful memory to get married in New York. We could only take our holiday time in winter, but I didn’t mind. Walking through the park in those shoes was very hard. You can tell I’m concentrating on not slipping and falling.” “Sulyn Tian, nurse, and Cheungfai Li, architect, married January 2008 Photo: Erik Freeland Photography

“When we booked a winter wedding, I really hoped it would be snowing. But I didn’t imagine we’d have a record-breaking blizzard that would cancel many of our guests’ flights. The snow was heavy and soft, like a mattress. Our reception was at Tribeca Rooftop, and at the end of the night, my husband and his friends just jumped in.” “Val Ferro, homemaker, and John Ferro (center), trader, married February 2010 Photo: Dave Cross Photography

“We were taking photos right across the street from the Met, and it was absolutely freezing. The guy who owned the food truck was watching us shiver, and I guess he felt bad, so he called us over and gave us free hot chocolate. It was warming, but I was nervous about spilling it all over my dress.” “Monica Shaw and Michael Shaw, both financiers, married December 2008 Photo: Lily Kesselman Photography

Slide Header Address, date, or similar info here. For me, the high point of the show is this, which manages simultaneously to be a painting, a force field, and an electromagnetic visual discharge. This is an artist sloughing off old consciousness, making something he doesn’t even know is art, giving up nearly all known languages of painting, and maybe violating the laws of nature by making something that seemingly puts off more energy than went into making it.
