Prospect Park Boathouse Wedding: Sarah and Matt

He stood there, waiting in the most perfect light for her to arrive. As she turned the corner walking through the shadow along the side the Prospect Park Boathouse, I knew it was going to be a special moment. This was a first look that was truly an honor to witness. This was a wedding day where the weather and day went pretty much perfectly and this couple really deserved it. The setting was gorgeous, the flowers by Mimosa Floral and the table setting and arranging by Dominique and her team were wonderful. It was a lovely wedding, and there was even an ice cream cart!

New York Botanical Gardens at Stone Mill Wedding

The New York Botanic Garden is such a fantastic place for a wedding. Located only a short drive or train ride from NYC the garden boasts two different venues for ceremonies and receptions and many fantastic locations for photos. Cherie and Rasmus selected the Stone Mill for their summer wedding and it was just beautiful. We did a first look near the azalea garden on a small bridge and then visited the conifer area for more portraits. We met the rest of the family and the wedding party in the Rose Garden for group portraits. The ceremony took place outside on the terrace and was officiated by a friend of the groom. The reception details were just lovely including a custom mini champagne bottle for each guest. Throughout the dinner, Danish wedding traditions were upheld including guests kissing either the bride or groom when the other one leaves for the powder room. During the reception, the traditions continued and the groom's friends cut his tie and socks off! I'm not sure of the origins of these traditions, but they were hilarious to watch and made for plenty for fun photographs!

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!
