Meredith & Alex`s wedding at the Newport Yacht Club & Marina

We might be still in winter, but spring is close and what better time to dream of the perfect summer wedding with the perfect view? After the bride got ready at the Peacock Inn with her dearest by her side and the help of La Jolie Salon & Spa, Meredith & Alex enjoyed the excitement and thrill of the very first look. 

Designed with a classic vibe, Meredith & Alex celebrated their intimate ceremony at the Church of Saint Ann and made sure their seaside celebration at the Newport Yacht Club & Marina was as gorgeous as the view at the Manhattan Skyline. Hollywood Entertainment made sure of a great atmosphere on the boat and The Portable Garden filled the reception with beautiful flowers and details. Ny Boat Charter definitely offers a unique and inspiring alternative to catering hall, restaurant, and banquet hall style weddings and we had a blast capturing Meredith & Alex`s beautiful moments while dancing and dining as they gently cruised the New York Harbor in Lady Liberty’s Shadow with the backdrop of the sparkling New York Skyline.

Candace & James beautiful Winterwedding

Candace & James had a visual wonderland with this intimate and elegant winter wedding and we are so excited to post this - get ready for some seriously beautiful wedding inspo plus the magic of Courtney and Jonathan covering their big day!

The couple chose the beautiful Roundhouse in Beacon as the backdrop for their wedding, which offers amazing brick walls and romantic details everywhere. Candace got ready with her mom and bridal party in the bridal suite, putting on her dreamy gown and her sparkling jewelry. Surrounded by family and friends, Candace walked down the aisle to her happy husband to be, said their vows and returned a married couple!  Tons of dancing and eating went on through the night with great food and drinks, and the couple loved their amazing cake.

Patricia and Max's New York City Wedding

This past August, it was our pleasure to watch Patricia and Max come together and become husband and wife.

The lovely bride dolled up for her big day at the W Hotel, in midtown Manhattan, excited as ever. Patricia was glowing, with beautiful help from Jason Ascher at Barney's, and Reese Donato. Afterwards, the couple first laid eyes on each other at the Church at St. Vincent Ferrer, where they finally said their "I do's." Patricia's elegant bouquet was handcrafted by those at Lenox Hill Florist. After the couple stopped to take wonderful photos throughout the heart of NYC, the reception began at The Loeb Central Park Boathouse. The lovely couple with their friends and family, were on the dance floor all night, celebrating with joy, thanks to the Scott Yanney Band.

Laura and Scott's New Jersey Wedding

Laura and Scott tied the knot this past September, we had a wonderful time joining them on their special day!

Laura and Scott exchanged their beautiful vows, and said "I do" at St. John the Baptist Church . Before the lovely couple first locked eyes, they both got ready at the W Hotel Hoboken. Laura was absolutely glowing, with the help of Facez. Action Limo helped get the wonderful bridal party, including the bride and groom, to the ceremony, to begin their special day. Laura's stunning bouquet was handcrafted and delivered by JR Floral. After the couple made it official, they hopped in the Rolls Royce, and made their way to the Liberty House for the reception. But before they could meet up with their friends and family, they made a few stops. We had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful moments between this couple on the railroad, Cobble Stone Street, the 9/11 Memorial, and many more special scenes. They couldn't keep their eyes off each other, wherever they went. When the couple finally met up with their guests, everyone celebrated Laura and Scott for the rest of the night. We had a very good time capturing the love between these two on camera, along with Craig William Films. A special thank you to Majestic Moments Event Planning for putting this special day together, and having us be apart of it!

Chelsea and Matthew's Bahamas Wedding

Chelsea and Matthew had an absolutely perfect destination wedding, in the Bahamas, this past December. 

Before the lovely couple said their "I do's" at The Cloisters, both Chelsea and Matthew prepped for their big day, at the Cove Atlantis. Chelsea looked incredibly beautiful, so beautiful Matthew couldn't keep his eyes off her! FaceTime Beauty did an amazing job, dolling her up. Chelsea's elegant bouquet caught out attention, thanks to Wildflowers. After the couple took romantic walks on the exotic beach, Chelsea and Matthew met up with their friends and family, and celebrated their love at the Versailles Garden. After the guests enjoyed their delicious meals, 45 Riots kept them on their feet all night long! It was our pleasure to catch these heartfelt moments, along with King of Hearts.
