You could not ask for a nicer day for a wedding at the light-filled St. Augustine’s Church in Ossining, New York. It was an especially meaningful ceremony for Jackie and Kevin's families because the priest officiating their ceremony was also the best man and the groom's brother! Following the ceremony, the reception kicked off with a cocktail outside at Coveleigh Club in Rye. It was a beautiful evening and despite some time challenges, we managed to take advantage of the pier and the club's lush grounds. The highlight of the reception was Jackie and her father singing a duet in lieu of their first dance, that was just so sweet!

Wainwright House Wedding

You could not have asked for a more perfect late summer wedding on the banks of the Hudson River. The couple was married at the Wainwright House in September in an outdoor ceremony adorned by a arch from Violet and Verde overlooking the river. The historic house and gardens offers many lovely settings for photos. The sunset with boats on the river was just amazing and I couldn't resist having the couple stand for a few silhouetted shots before the reception. Following dinner and speeches in the tent, dancing continued in the house. Dessert included many specialties brought from Japan by the bride. At the end of the night in a truly dramatic fashion, the couple waving flags from their respective countries, exited through sparklers to a waiting Rolls Royce. A grand end to a spectacular day!

Thayer Hotel West Point, NY Wedding: Claúdia & Rick

After their unique rehearsal dinner at an old train station at West Point, Claúdia and Rick were married in a beautiful ceremony by Susan Turchin at the Thayer Hotel. One of the most special parts of their wedding in my opinion was the attendance not only some of Claú's family and friends all the way from Brazil, but her American host family. (She was an exchange student and lived with a family just like I did when I was in Germany before moving here.) So wonderful to still be connected and also become part of another family like I have. I know it meant so much to her to have them there and I made sure to get many photos of them as well. :)
