This year, we go the timing just right for Kelly and Jared’s spring engagement session in Central Park. The couple wanted to take full advantage of New York City’s beautiful Cherry Blossoms which only bloom once a year. We scheduled and prayed there would be no rain, and boy, did NYC deliver. It was the most glorious sunny morning in Central Park and the cherry blossoms were clearly showing off! Kelly and Jared’s engagement session is one fo my all time favorites because not only are their images filled to the brim with cherry blossoms, they are also the nicest, sweetest, and one of kindest couples I have ever met. I cannot wait for their wedding later this Fall at The Essex House in Manhattan. It is going to be so much fun!! xo
The Fall is one of my favorite seasons in New York. I love when the weather gets a bit cooler, the leaves start to change, and it’s the perfect time of year for a wedding. Margaret and Phil love Montauk. They spend many Summer’s together growing their relationship out in the Hamptons so it was the only place to have their wedding. The held their wedding ceremony and reception at the stunning Gurneys Star Island Resort.
The bride wore a stunning wedding gown from Pronovias and her grandmother’s wedding ring in her honor. Her bridesmaids wore blush peach dresses and held delicate bouquets from AvaFloral. Margaret’s all white wedding bouquet is one of my favorites ever! So simple and so stunning. The groom wore a light blue suit and his best men were a mix of the brides brother and his childhood best friend. Margaret and Phil had their wedding ceremony outside in front of the cottages with the lake view at Gurneys Star Island Resort. The stood under the beautiful floral arch that framed the couple perfectly.
As the couple exchanged their vows and became husband and wife, everyone was overcome with emotion and celebrated the newlyweds as they walked down the aisle arm and arm. The Farmhouse Ballroom was decorated with white and pops of greenery. Margaret and Phil love to dance and A Sterling Band kept the dance floor packed the entire reception. It was such an honor to be with Margaret and Phil on their wedding day and I can’t wait to see what life has in store for this amazing, sweet, and lovable couple! xo

One of my all time favorite venues to photograph weddings is the Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg. It’s a smaller venue that tends to be more charming and intimate for weddings, and of course, their wine is incredible! Each time I’m asked to document a wedding and the couple chooses Brooklyn Winery for their venue, I get excited!
Colleen and Andrew’s wedding is one of my favorites. They are just the sweetest couple who were truly made for each other. They compliment each other so well and they are a joy to be around. Colleen wore the most delicate lace wedding dress, twig and honey gold leaf hair pin and a pair of CatBird earrings she had picked up the day before. Andrew looked handsome in his navy suite and custom sunglasses that had the couples wedding date printed on them. The both got ready at the William Vale hotel so we decided to have their first look in their private rooftop garden in brooklyn. The look of happiness on Andrew’s face when he turned around to see Colleen with open arms waiting for him was truly touching.
We visited the brand new Domino Park for their bridal party photos which are some of my favorites before heading back to Brooklyn Winery to prepare for their wedding ceremony. In front of their wedding guest, Colleen and Andrew exchanged laughs, tears, and wedding vows to officially become husband and wife. The night was so much fun and it was a true honor to be part of their wedding day. They are going to have a wonderful, adventurous life together and can’t wait to see what happens next for this amazing couple! xo
