JoAnn & Ralph's Westchester Country Club Wedding

JoAnn and Ralph are a wonderful couple. They are the kind of couple that everyone instantly adores. Sweet through and through, so much fun, and the kind of people you just love to see getting married to each other. Their wedding was on a beautiful autumn day filled with warm friends, loving family, beautiful moments, and fun details throughout. I'm so excited to finally be able to share their wedding on my blog! This wedding was a fantastic way to finish my 2013 wedding season, and soon I will be sharing my 2014 weddings - so stay tuned!

This little guy must have stayed up pretty late the night before the wedding:

I love the timelessness of this photo, in a vintage Bentley right after their ceremony:

Then on the gorgeous grounds of Westchester Country Club, a most beautiful setting for a wedding!

The Westchester Country Club ballroom was breathtaking!

JoAnn's gorgeous wedding cake was a replica of her exquisite Vera Wang wedding gown. If you look closely, you can see a tiny Spiderman peeking out from the bottom of the cake as a surprise for Ralph!

One of my favorite cake-cutting photographs ever!

JoAnn and Ralph, you guys know how much I adore you both! Being a part of your wedding was beyond amazing. I wish you many many many years of wedded bliss!

Antonella & Jed's Wedding at Harvest on Hudson

I love weddings at Harvest on Hudson - an unmatched view of the Hudson River and the Palisades, situated between the George Washington and the Tappan Zee Bridges, delicious food, and a beautiful venue. When you add in an amazing couple like Antonella and Jed, you have the perfect recipe for a fantastic wedding.

Antonella, moments before walking down the aisle. I love that you can see the nervous excited energy in her face.

Luckily, the weather held out for a sweet outdoor ceremony in the garden

Next, we took a few moments to photograph Antonella and Jed together, taking in the spectacular view

Then it was on to dancing and an elegant reception inside.

It was a lovely wedding day for Antonella and Jed, and I'm honored I was able to be a part of it all!

Westchester Family Portraits

It's been quite a while since I've blogged recent portrait sessions! How could I let these cuties go un-blogged for so long? Please forgive me while enjoying these tiny adorable smiles:

This handsome little fella is no stranger to the blog. I know his mama is going to be VERY happy to see his adorable face on here (finally - I know!).

And his Boston terrier pup had to have his own moment in the spotlight too :)

Next up we have this beautiful little newborn-- I'm looking forward to seeing him again very soon for some updated portraits!

He was a perfect angel throughout his entire session!

Love his sweet little squishy face!

I had such a nice time photographing these cousins and their families. These were the five most well-behaved children I have ever photographed. Their mamas are doing a darn good job of raising such polite sweet children!

The mom of these two little cuties is also one of my brides. It was great seeing her and catching up again! (Can't forget dad - it always seems to be about the brides though, right?)

Next up are these two handsome brothers. Baby brother was so smily and happy!

I love this photo of the two handsome little guys together. This was one of my favorite portraits I made all last year. (Oops, now you know how late I am at blogging these!) Have you ever seen such big beautiful blue eyes??

And big brother had so much fun climbing and playing at our session - he was full of energy!

And finally we have this sweet and fun little lady, who just became a big sister!

I love this silly picture with mom and dad, who are also wedding clients of mine. I love seeing my families grow and come back to me each year, it is such a blessing!

Hope to see many more of you very soon! I love photographing children and families just as much as I love photographing weddings. 'Tis the season for both!

Vincent and Nancy's Wedding at Sleepy Hollow Country Club

I was honored to once again have one of my weddings published in The Westchester Wedding Planner magazine! This is the third issue, the Annniversary Issue, and I am pinching myself that I was lucky enough to have one of my weddings published in each issue so far!

This issue featured the wedding of Nancy and Vincent at Sleepy Hollow Country Club. It was  beautiful day, with a gorgeous view of the Hudson River, and a beautiful bride and handsome groom. The wedding was elegant and sophisticated, yet fun and relaxed. And Sleepy Hollow Country Club? It is, by far, one of the most spectacularly beautiful spaces I have ever set my eyes on. 

Here are the spreads from the magazine, featuring Nancy and Vinny's wedding:

And some more photos from Nancy and Vincent's beautiful wedding at Sleepy Hollow Country Club. Thanks to Denise Cregier for coming along to second shoot with me! 

If you are looking for gorgeous sweeping views of the Hudson River during your outdoor ceremony, this is about as spectacular as you can get. And the weather was absolute perfection.

Million dollar view from the golf course:

Vinny's classic Camaro made a quick appearance:

The extraordinary floral designs were created by Forever In Bloom. Everything was so lush and gorgeous!

I have to mention Nancy and Vinny's amazing band, Tribeca Rhythm, who were one of the most talented bands I have heard in a very long time. I can't recommend them enough - they had the crowd dancing the entire night, and were one of the most flexible bands I have heard, in terms of being able to play an amazing variety of different styles of music.

Congratulations Nancy and Vinny - you had such a beautiful wedding and it was such an honor to be a part of your special day!
