The newly renovated Bear Mountain is now hosting weddings. That’s great for many reasons: plenty of grounds to work with, a carousel, great food, and it’s close to the studio! Natalie and I had the honor of capturing Jenn and Bob’s wedding and despite a little chill in the air, its was a great day!
You may not find a happier bride then Kim. Her wedding (along with Nick) was a super laid back day. Prep, ceremony, and portraits all took place at Round Hill House- which is always a great location. A surprise mash potato bar was a huge hit, and the from start to finish was all fun.
It’s so nice to see something refreshing: a wedding in Central Park with literally no guests on Veteran’s Day. Natalie and I had plenty of time beforehand with them, and the weather was perfect! Reverend Annie did a great job, and overall, a wonderful day to remember.
That’s right, you read it correctly… a wedding at the CIA! For those who live in the area, the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park stopped doing weddings about 5 years ago. It was a shame because of the awesome grounds they have there, and the unbelievable food and service. But of course if you’re the Assistant Dean you can certainly have your wedding there!
Last weekend at The Grandview, Jax and Anthony had a perfect wedding day. Originally, the weather called for rain… there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Who doesn’t love an outdoor wedding in October at the Grandview?- no one! It’s just so nice there. The happy couple dances all night, and made it very obvious to everyone that they had a great day.
Back again to Crystal Springs for a wedding, and we are not complaining! Natalie and I shot Katherine’s wedding there a year ago, and we fell in love with the place. Megan and Scott are so freakin funny! We had a great day- just easy going with no rush, and good people, and perfect weather. Thanks to Jason Frankel from Excel Entertainment for not only good music, but some live performances as well! -and for the first time ever, I have to use a mic to position nearly 60 people for a group shot on the dance floor… all good though!
Well, even though they have been married for a while, being that Brett is Military, his West Point wedding had to be a portrait shoot instead. So that’s what we did! Plain and simple. And oh man did we dodge a HUGE storm by seconds!!! It was very cool- for those in the area, this shoot was Oct 7th… thanks for checking it out!
This was it!!! The NYC wedding at Manhattan Penthouse that so many people have been waiting for, and had no problem showing their excitement. I can’t remember ever witnessing the guests applauding when the bride comes down the aisle. The exhilaration in the room was contagious, and that energy lasted the entire night.
The day started very laid back at her NYC apartment for a little prep, where all the ladies were drinking Veuve, laughing, getting hair, make up, and nails done… Then off to MP for a pre ceremony welcome hour, then a ceremony with more laughs, standing ovations, and just pure excitement. The reception was even better: excellent food, great company, beautiful flowers by Rachel Cho, champagne flowing, great music by Generation Events, and a surprise Bollywood performance at the end of the night that blew everyone away. Natalie and I were honored to be there, and I couldn’t have asked a better way to celebrate my birthday as well!
This was our first time to Arrow Park Lake and Lodge for a wedding, and what an awesome location! There are so many great elements there… When Jenne and Fernando met us in the studio a few months ago, we KNEW this wedding was going to be one of those weddings that stand out, and it certainly was.
