I am so excited to finally be sharing this amazing wedding. Not only did I have the chance to work with my best friend of almost 15 years, Jen at Fondly Forever (a dream come true!), but we got to spend four days in Cabo San Lucas with Kim, Bryan and their amazing family and friends. From the moment we arrived in Mexico, we felt like family. It was such a pleasure getting to spend a few days with the wedding party. From volleyball on the beach and swimming in the pool to whale watching (most amazing experience ever) in the most crystal clear blue water, every moment was perfect! When the ceremony time rolled around, everyone casually made their way over to a tiny cove on the beach. The ceremony was spent by each guest giving a piece of advice on marriage or encouragement for Kim and Bryan’s life together. It was so sweet. You could tell they are so loved and so in love with one another. After saying I do, everyone ended the evening with an intimate dinner on the beach. Kim and Bryan, thank you so much for giving Jen and myself a tiny glimpse into the love you have for one another as well as the love of your family and friends! We are so lucky to have been able to capture it.
Rebecca and Edo had a super classy and fun wedding at the Harvard Club. It is such a beautiful space! Everything felt so grand. After their super sweet first look out on the busy NYC street, they spent a few hours walking around Bryant Park and the surrounding area. It is always nice to have extra one on one video time with the couple! Their super sweet ceremony was led by a Rabbi who has been a part of Edo’s life since he was a small child, so there was so much personality put into their ceremony. The two of them met israeli dancing, so of course the reception was a ton of fun! From their choreographed first dance to the hora and the rest of the special music. Check out this peek into their day!
Anne is hands down one of the sweetest brides I have ever worked with. She booked me long before her wedding in April of this year, but periodically checked in just to say hi and see how I was doing. She is so thoughtful and kind! It is no surprise that she ended up with an equally awesome person to marry like Jason. From the moment I arrived you could feel the emotion and love at Liberty Warehouse. Anne was getting ready along with her bridesmaids and mom and many tears were shed as she got into her insanely beautiful wedding gown. Anne and Jason had their first look right on the water overlooking the Statue of Liberty on the most perfect spring afternoon. After saying their vows under a flower-filled Chuppah, the rest of the evening was spend dancing and celebrating their love.
If I had one word to describe Michelle and Nate it would be glamorous. From her Vera Wang dress and Louboutin heels to his custom tailored suit, these two were gorgeous. After meeting in a soups, sauce and stocks (I think that was it!) class in culinary school, they realized they were meant to be together forever. They gathered with their closest friends and family in the adorable town of Newport, Rhode Island for a day and night of celebrating. I loved every minute of their day – enjoy a glimpse into it below!
I was so excited when Jennifer first contacted me about her wedding because she was getting married in one of the most beautiful churches in NYC on the same exact weekend I shot there last year! You may remember Sarah & John’s wedding from April 2012 at St Francis Xavier. From the first moment I met Jennifer and Jean Noel you could tell they had a deep, authentic love and were truly meant to be! I loved that they mixed in personal vows along with the traditional Catholic mass. It was so sweet to hear how long they both waited to find “the one” and how their lives had been changed by one another. Enjoy this small peek into their day.
Chi Chi and Justin are such an adorable couple. They were married in late March at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle. Just in time for their first look, the weather decided to finally warm up! It was so nice to be outside for a while before heading to the venue for their ceremony and reception. The night was filled with toasts, dancing and celebrating Chi Chi and Justin. All the best to the new married couple!
This is such an exciting post! For the last 6 years I have had the honor and privilege of shooting hundreds of weddings (I lost count somewhere along the way). I love weddings and couldn’t imagine any better job for me. However, I have been brainstorming the idea of breaking into more lifestyle films. Along came Jennifer, John and their growing family. Already blessed with 16 month old Harper, Jennifer was pregnant again and went into labor with John Tyler early on the morning of March 29th. Along with my friends Courtney and Paul at Kinora Films (who came through in a major pinch!) we captured John Tyler’s first few moments on earth. Video is such a powerful tool and I say that all the time to my wedding clients, but this was on a different level of amazing. Hearing the first few cries and seeing John look on with pride as he got his measurements done was so special. I hope Jennifer and John are able to hold this video close forever and that when John Tyler is older he is able to enjoy it too!
Tiffany and Keith’s relationship had a long and fun past. Initially meeting in high school, it wasn’t until years later that they finally decided to be together for good. They have a really fun dynamic and I had such a great time documenting their wedding! On a snowy and cold March day, they got married at the Grand Summit Hotel in New Jersey. After a heartfelt ceremony where Keith got down on one knee and proposed for real to Tiffany (apparently the first time he got so nervous he forgot to get down on one knee!) everyone had a great time dancing and celebrating.
Cristina and Niki had the most beautiful winter wedding at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. Apparently Rivervale, New Jersey got more snow than anywhere else during the snowstorm the week before so everything was still covered in fresh snow! After their beautiful ceremony, guests danced for hours along with the newly married couple. Such a fun dance party! Through the words of their family and friends during toasts at the reception, it was obvious that Niki and Cristina are meant for each other. Enjoy their preview!
Valentine’s day seemed like the perfect time to post this beautiful wedding. Alli and Anthony were married last Saturday just hours after the huge blizzard hit NYC. It’s always an adventure getting married in this city! Luckily with the exception of a few guests who weren’t able to make it, Alli and Anthony took everything in stride and their day was perfect. Their wedding took place at two New York City landmarks – the University Club and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. A processional of their guests was lead by a bagpiper from the ceremony to reception where everyone danced to an amazing band including a set by Alli’s dad and his band from back in the day! So much fun. Enjoy their clip below.
