Long Island, New York Wedding

This Long Island, New York wedding is very special to me because the bride and I went to college together. One of my favorite things about this job is getting to photograph the weddings of old friends. Jessica and I met on the first day of freshman orientation at our alma mater, Clark University. Years ago Jessica commented on a post from a wedding I had photographed saying she was going to have me photograph her wedding one day, and she wasn’t kidding. Earlier this year, she called me up to tell me the good news. It is always an honor when a couple chooses us to photograph their wedding, and an even bigger honor when it is an old friend.

Jessica and Carl’s wedding took place on a beautiful fall day the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was an unseasonably warm November day in New York, which was especially nice because it’s been awhile since I’ve experienced a real northern winter.

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Harbor Club at Prime in Huntington, New York. The venue featured beautiful views of Huntington Harbor, which was the perfect backdrop for photos. I’ve lived in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, but had not ever been to Long Island. Huntington was beautiful and completely exceeded my expectations!

Fanny Cakes made the beautiful naked cake and cupcakes, and DJ Vin kept everyone dancing all night. The amazing food was provided by. Imperial Florist created the beautiful florals. Jessica looked amazing in her wedding dress, which was from Majesty in Danbury, Connecticut.

We had an amazing time photographing Jessica and Carl’s wedding. Thank you so much for allowing us to be your wedding photographers.

Dara’s Garden Wedding and Gettysvue Country Club Reception

We’re back from our winter slum with a beautiful Dara’s Garden wedding. When the weather starts getting warmer and the flowers begin to bloom, you know it’s wedding season in Tennessee. What better way to kick off the spring wedding season than with a garden wedding in East Tennessee. This Knoxville wedding features a ceremony at Dara’s Garden and a reception at Gettysvue Country Club. It also features a couple that I can’t say enough positive things about. Brandon and Sarah met and live in Charlotte, North Carolina. They decided to have their wedding in Knoxville because Brandon grew up there and most of his family still lives in the area. Brandon and Sarah wanted a small wedding. Well, actually they were so anxious to get married they said they wanted to “run to the courthouse!”

However, to keep everyone happy (and to throw themselves a party) they decided on a beautiful ceremony at Dara’s Garden and a reception at Gettysvue Country Club. In addition to these two fantastic knoxville wedding venues, a number of other great vendors helped make this event possible. This intimate Dara’s Garden wedding was officiated by Celebrations by CelesteArt of Cakes provided the beautiful wedding cake, Lisa Foster Floral Designs created the stunning florals, and Southern Belle Beauty provided the perfect makeup and hair. Sarah purchased her Theia wedding dress from Ladies of Lineage in Charlotte, and the bridesmaids dress is from Poffie Girls. Brandon’s suit was from TheBlackTux.com.

It was such a pleasure being a part of this wedding. Sarah, Brandon and their families made me feel so welcome, which always makes this amazing job I have that much better. I can’t thank them enough giving me the opportunity to photograph this momentous day for them. Thanks for checking out the blog! We’ll have more wedding photography to share this year from Nashville, Knoxville, Florida and beyond. So, please stay tuned!
