Lauren & Justin’s Wedding at The Park

Lauren & Justin had a lovely and beautifully planned wedding at The Park in November. Sarah True of True Events planned and coordinated the day to make sure everything went as smooth as possible-and she went above and beyond! They picked the Dream Downtown to get ready and see each other for the first time, couldn’t have been a better place for these two. We led Justin around the pool area and when Lauren was ready, he turned around to see his bride for the first time. After a sweet moment, the bridal party and family joined for photos outside while keeping warm and cozy just inside the bar area while waiting turns. Soon we headed to The Park where final details were being placed; Lauren went for a beautiful ombre blush theme to compliment the space’s warm and twinkly atmosphere. With the ceremony quickly approaching, we took some portraits before hiding when guests started trickling in. The ceremony was candid and sweet, officiated by Reverend Annie Lawrence. After, a fun cocktail hour transitioned smoothly into the fun evening of dinner, toasts and ultimately LOTS of dancing.

Pamela & Brian’s Fall wedding at Hamilton Farms Country Club

Pamela and Brian had such great weather and light for their fall wedding day-a photographer’s delight! Hamilton Farms Country Club was the perfect setting for them as they got ready and had their first look under a tree for a private moment between the two of them. Pamela looked stunning in her Vera Wang gown, as the two strolled around the grounds laughing and simply enjoying each other’s company. Their warm and bright ceremony was held outside the main club in the garden and right as sunset happened they were married! Cocktail hour began soon after and we snuck the two newlyweds away for some portraits after some family formals. Dinner and dancing followed well into the night and everyone had an amazing time! Music by Vali Entertainment, planning by Leave it to T, flowers by Crest Florist, video by Craig William Films, hair by Zoku Salon and looks by Makeup by Alexandra.

Sara & Dan’s Wedding at the Pearl River Hilton

It seems the Pearl River Hilton knows how to throw a party-Sara and Dan’s being the second one this year that had some pretty epic energy! Dan and his gents chose to prep at the Pearl River before heading over to the church, while Sara chose her childhood home to prep with her ladies and family. Guests were arriving at the gorgeous St. John the Baptist church in Hillsdale, waiting for a glimpse of Sara coming down the aisle in her La Sposa dress. Dan’s facial expression was so sweet when he greeted her, being walked by her dad. After the ceremony and the two were officially wed, everyone headed back to Pearl River for an all night dance party kept alive by a) every guest’s energy (everyone was on the dance floor the whole night!) and b) Craig Scott Entertainment‘s genius way of involving the guests (think bongos for them to play). Sara and Dan were surrounded by everyone they loved and enjoyed their evening immensely. Flowers by Flower Elegance & planning extraordinaire Lulu Event Design kept the day running smoothly.

Todd & Joe’s Wedding on the Hornblower Yacht

Todd and Joe celebrated their wedding in the best way ever: surrounded by their best friends and family on a yacht circling Manhattan. On board the Hornblower Hybrid, guests were welcomed with champagne before sitting down topside for a sunset ceremony. Todd and Joe arrived shortly before the ceremony after taking portraits around the meatpacking district and the High Line. Once they were officially married and the license signed it was time to party! The table was lovely, laid out with a custom charm or jewelry hand made by Todd himself! After sweet speeches, delicious food and cake cutting everyone hit the dance floor for the rest of the night celebrating Todd and Joe!
