Winter Wedding in New York City

Ever dreamed of a New York wedding during Christmastime?  Well Mimi and Matt had just that!  From Santas on the street to the glowing lights of Central Park, the night was truly magical!  

Their reception took place at the New York Athletic Club.  Planner, Laura Irizarry, did an incredible job of creating an intimate evening for their guests to enjoy.  And as always, Element Music, kept the bride and groom dancing the entire night!

Lizzy & Jay at Westchester Country Club

Lizzy & Jay at Westchester Country Club

Held at the Westchester Country Club, Lizzy and Jay’s wedding was the perfect combination of classic elegance and whimsical sophistication. Alex Deagle of Lyndsey Hamilton Events did an amazing job of setting the perfect mood for the night.

Xquisit Events created all floral arrangements and ETA Music kept the party going all night!  We loved being part of such a memorable day!

Jennifer and Paul’s New York Wedding

Winged Foot Golf Club proved to be the perfect wedding venue for Jennifer and Paul’s big day.  Mrs. Morgan’s Flowers set the stage for a truly romantic affair while Around Town Entertainment kept the party going all night long!

And as always, we love working alongside Craig William Films to help capture every important detail of the day’s events.

And one of the best moments of the night was when the guests all sang Happy Birthday to Paul, who’s actual birthday was that same day. Cheers to Jennifer and Paul!  It was definitely a night to remember!

Chevonne & Chris’ Grand Cascades Lodge Wedding

You know it’s going to be a fun event when the bride and groom book their own band to perform at their wedding!  Chevonne and Chris pulled out all the creative stops to truly make this day their own.  Their wedding took place at the Grand Cascades Lodge located in New Jersey.  The venue was such a perfect place to celebrate these two.

After the intimate ceremony and fun loving toasts, the guests were treated to a performance by none other than the couple themselves!  It was truly a night to remember!

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 Wanggown, 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. We took some amazing photos of their big day! Flowers by Flower Elegance & planning extraordinaire Lulu Event Design kept the day running smoothly.

Michelle and Mike’s Wedding at Pearl River Hilton

Michelle and Mike had a wonderful wedding day at the Hilton Pearl River, which was nearby Michelle’s childhood home. She chose to get ready at the hotel with her ladies, while Mike got ready with his gents. She has a love for frogs, so we saw those details (including kermit!) imbedded into her day! After the lovely ceremony at the Church of Presentation, the newlyweds went to her parents’ home to take some portraits before joining the bridal party back at Pearl River for photos, cocktail hour and an epic reception. These people know how to dance! Music and entertainment by Artificial Flavor, flowers by Allendale Flowers, makeup by Mirror Mirror and hair by Sydney Madison Salon.
