New York Wedding Photography - A Newport Yacht Club & Marina Wedding - Meredith & Alex

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.

Ny Destination Wedding Photography - A Bahamas Wedding - Chelsea and Matthew

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. A big thank you to Sarah Glick at Brilliant Event Planning, also Chelsea's very good friend, for putting this extravagant wedding together! We were very thankful to be apart of it.

Our Best of 2016

2016 has been an amazing year for us, here at Craig Paulson Photography! We were lucky enough to be able to be apart of some of the most beautiful, and heartwarming weddings. From the lovely brides and grooms, the extravagant parties, to the breathtaking venues, we're thankful to have been able to witness it all.

Each wedding this past year has been special and unique in it's own way. The most intimate moments, from the first look, to a walk down the aisle, and the couple's portraits, have been captured by us, with great pleasure. 

We have put together some of our favorite moments captured during each wedding, for the year of 2016. Each moment was special, and reminded us of how much we love to be apart of these beautiful occasions. We are looking forward to an even more special 2017!


Ny Wedding Photography - An East Hampton Wedding - Anna and Conlin

Anna and Conlin came together with family and friends to celebrate their love for each other, on this special day. We were honored to catch the beautiful moments this bride and groom shared together!

Anna and Conlin took a romantic stroll on the beach, where they couldn't keep their hands, or eyes off of each other! We can't blame them, Anna looked absolutely breathtaking in her Oscar de la Renta gown, with the help of Subway Salon. After the couple spent time on the beach, they met with their guests at the Maidstone Club, looking forward to the rest of their big night. The bride's beautiful bouquet was designed by Anastasia Casale at Sag Harbor Florist. Luxe - from Hank Lane kept the lovely couple, and their lovely guests on their feet all night, while Keith Brady caught all the fun on camera.

Katie and Aaron’s Manursing Island Club Wedding

When choosing a venue, it was a clear choice for Katie to want to celebrate at the Manursing Island Club where she has been a lifelong tennis player (and champ!).  The florals provided by, Stems, created a classic look throughout the ceremony and reception.

From the custom ceremony to lively reception, Katie and Aaron truly created a fun and entertaining night for their friends and family.  The dance floor was packed all night (with music by Sultans)!

It was a day filled with energy, laughter, and love!

Christina & Rob’s Wedding at Bridgeview Yacht Club

It was a lovely sunny day out on Long Island for Christina and Rob’s wedding day. We drove out to meet them at their parents’ homes (right around the corner from one another) to capture their prep surrounded by their families and bridal party. Christina’s Maggie Sottero gown was absolutely perfect, which was accompanied by a birdcage veil completing the look! Rob prepped with his guys and headed to Saint Francis De Sales for the ceremony where he would see Christina for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Their ceremony was sweet as their friends and family watched on, followed by a bagpiper and bubbles just outside on the steps. It was then picture time so we headed down to the beach for a few quick photosin the brisk March air before heading to the Bridgeview Yacht club to conclude pictures and let the newlyweds get to their awesome cocktail hour! The rest of the evening was spent eating, drinking and dancing to tunes by DJs at Work. Flowers by Marine Florist and makeup by Annie Divilly.
