A classy Winter Wedding in New Hyde Park, NY

A classy Winter Wedding in New Hyde Park, NY

Mikael & Hope

Hope & Mikael are two of the most genuine,sweet, lovely people I have ever met. When we first met Hope gushed over with wedding details describing to me her dream of the perfect classy and romantic wedding. Hope and Mikael are both Armenian and let’s just say that after their wedding I wanted to be Armenina too…no really I did! What an incredible experiance it was to be a part of their wedding day!

The morning of the wedding Mikael and his groomsmen were busy starting the party at his house, Hope and her girls were getting all dolled up in nervous anticipation and I was downing coffee like it was my job. At the Church Mikael’s mother sang “Ava Maria” as Hope strolled down the aisle, absolutely beaming towards her now Husband. The Inn at New Hyde Park was fully decorated for Christmas (and we took complete advantage of that) and the ballroom was everything candle-lit dreams are made of. Hope & Mikael danced the night away before we had to say our goodbyes (Im not gunna lie I shed a few tears). They are in for a long and simply wonderful marriage…congratulations you guys!

Megan & Jason

   It was 5 years ago now that I was wheeled into Westchester medical center at 23 weeks pregnant with a baby who was trying to sneak out a tad early. The next 2 months (and 3 days) I sat in Westchester holding in my sweet little boy, enter in the sweetest of humans Megan. Nights were difficult because I was so far from home and Megan was my night nurse and we forged a quite real friendship…fast forward to a stunning October day and I got to watch this sweet lady become a Mrs.

Megan and Jason have already lived a lifetime of challenges, ups and downs and are finally “settling in” to married life. The type of bond that is forged when you have already “been through it all” is completely tangible, and it weaves itself into every aspect of the wedding day. Megan and I drove together to the ceremony with her mom and we chatted about how long they had been together, how God had been persistent in their hearts, and how quite frankly Megan did not think she would make it to the altar sometimes but here she was in her gown on her way. I look forward to watching their family and love grow, I look forward to visiting the farm that I am totally confident they will one day have, I cant wait to see the many blessings this marriage will bring and I am beyond honored to have been there. Congratulations love birds!

Katelyn & Jamie

  ⠀ They met in college, he played in a band and after at a party they chatted it up. Fast forward a few years and here we are on a cozy bright fall day in Catskill NY watching them say I do. Katelyn & Jamie planned their wedding day around wanting to have a good time, throughout our meetings they excitedly told me about their party animal guests (which was totally true by the by). When I meet with couples I listen closely to the parts of the wedding day that are repeatedly being brought up and with Katelyn and Jaime it became clear how much they valued their friends and their family and above all each other. 

      Jamie has the bluest eyes I have ever seen and when I look back through their wedding images my heart is warmed to see that his eyes simply LIT UP whenever he was looking at Katelyn. I can only imagine what it was like when they set eyes on each other that night while she watched him play, It was probably a lot like the way they looked at each other on their wedding day which was swoon worthy. These two partied away into the night laughing and dancing and I fully imagine thats what their marriage will be like! Katelyn and Jamie it really was an honor to be their on your wedding day, now you two go on and live a beautiful life together!

A fall engagement session on Lake Minnewaska

Isaac & Veronica

Place me like a seal over your heart, Like a seal over your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lake Minnewaska was the PERFECT choice for Isaac & Veronicas fall engagement session, this setting brought out the best in both of them. Isaac is your classic outdoorsy guy who was clearly at home in these mountains, Veronica (who by the way was Isaacs first girlfriend I mean come on) clearly loves anywhere Isaac is. During this session we walked (a lot) and talked about how beautiful marriage is, what a blessing it is to have a lasting covenant that keeps through life mountains and valleys (see what I did there). These two will become one in January in what is sure to be a wonderful wedding that my heart cannot wait for~

A Summer wedding at Green Tree Country club // Hudson Valley NY

Rosa & Dan

    Big. Beaming. Smiles. That is the first thing I noticed about Rosa and Dan when we met only a few months ago, they were laughing with each other as flung myself fresh out of city traffic to meet with them. Rosa and I gushed over the amazing details she had planned out for their summer wedding at The Green Tree Country Club in New Rochelle, it was absolutely a dream wedding. 

    Dream weddings are simply…well…dreamy but even more important than glittery details are the couples who plan them. It was a short journey with Rosa and Dan but one that was filled with rewarding moments and sweet stories of who these two are. Rosas bridesmaids kept telling me over and over again how she is the epitome of giving always going the extra mile and Dan actually stays after school to play catch with young kids who dont have dads to play with at home(yes wipe that tear from your eye). Together they are lovely, quiet, sweet, full of joy and now they are married! Warm sunshine wrapped the day up like a bow and as the reception got started the sunset on the river cast the perfect purple painted backdrop to usher in the party of a lifetime. Take a peak to the end of this blog and you will see the hands down coolest thing to ever have happen at a wedding reception…

Jen & Cory’s Summer wedding // Upstate, NY

Jen & Cory’s Summer wedding // Upstate, NY

Jen and Cory’s wedding day was filled with glorious summer sunshine, big beaming smiles and plenty of line dancing. This summer wedding season here in the Hudson Valley NY has been a wet one. When I met up with Jen & Cory to do their wedding day timeline that was the big concern…our plans to do the first look around Lake Louise Marie were diverted because everything was drenched. August 4th turned out to be GORGEOUS itself! The sun made everything sparkle at the Sullivan and these two lovebirds beamed even brighter than that very sun.

I’m convinced that even if it had down-poured they would still be brimming from ear to ear because they are head-over-heels in love with each other. We first met up back in October and I was instantly drawn by their giggly nature, their sweet we met online tale and the fact that they consistently needed to be looking at eachother…they are a photographers dream.  Its wedding days like theirs that make me want to sing for joy that I ever picked up a camera and became a wedding photographer. You see I watch grooms loose it when they see their wife for the first time, I watch daddies swirl around a dance floor tears falling as they wonder where on earth the time went, I listen to vows carefully written and pledged to each other through shaky hands and voices, I am a part of every glorious moment. Jen and Cory had a spectacular wedding day and I know that a laughter filled marriage is ahead, wish we could do this day all over again!!
