Angie + Leighton || Westbury Manor Weddings

Going into the day, we knew our schedule would be quite busy. We were excited to see Angie and Leighton’s wedding day unfold, as the months leading up to the big day have been overflowing with anticipation. Their wedding day itself was filled with the perfect mix of family involvement, beautiful color palettes and well-thought-out details… all while making a point to highlight the decade long love story that brought them to this very day.

Getting married at the Westbury Manor was one of many excellent choices made by our bride and groom. Initially, the forecast had some people worrying that the ceremony would be moved indoors. Miraculously enough, the weather held long enough to keep everything outside and everything went according to plan. Imbedded in this garden theme were some really cute outfits worn by the kids participating in the bridal party.

Although our schedule was busy, our checklist was short. Without a doubt, our favorite part of the day was knowing how much emphasis Angie and Leighton had on celebrating the day with loved ones. Carrying this in mind helped us to really concentrate on photographing the moments of the day, and for that, we are very grateful.

Thank you Angie and Leighton for trusting us + having us there for your big day. Congratulations to you both!

David + Mary || Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge Weddings

We loved every moment of David and Mary’s wedding day celebration. As usual, we started off our day separately photographing the bride + groom. With both sides, we encountered a very no-frills, stress-free environment. Not only did their morning schedule move along smoothly, but we also sensed absolutely zero anxiety coming from the bridal parties. Having such a relaxing + warm atmosphere certainly contributed to an incredible rest of the day for everyone.

Mary + David chose the spectacular Prospect Park for portraits, followed by the ceremony at Grace UMC of Brooklyn, and an evening of celebration at The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge Hotel. Sometime during the cocktail hour, we were lucky enough to sneak away with our newlyweds for some portrait time overlooking both Brooklyn + Manhattan.

Our absolute favorite memory was being there for the evening celebration. The toasts were personal, heartwarming, and at many points, really hilarious. Later on, the groomsmen had the DJ play ‘Hava Nagila’, a traditional song that accompanies the Jewish Horah.. and up in the air the newlyweds went. The remainder of the evening was spent dancing the night away.

Congratulations once again to our newlyweds, Mary + David!



Sarah + Dmitry || Cape May, NJ

For the longest time, we’ve dreamt of being invited to a wedding in Cape May… and this past weekend, our dreams came true.

We’re so thankful that Sarah and Dmitry asked us to document their big day. The wedding day events all took place within historic Cape May– a gorgeous New Jersey beach community most famously for it’s Victorian architecture and shore town charm. They spent the morning getting ready at Hotel Macomer, followed by the wedding ceremony at the nearby Cape Island Baptist Church (in line with tradition, the church staff rang the tower bell to celebrate their nuptials). We journeyed through downtown Cape May & as far as the Historic Cape May Lighthouse for some portraits, before heading back to the Union Park Restaurant for an evening full of celebration. The rest of the night was filled with memorable toasts, keyboard performances dedicated to the bride + groom, dancing and a whole lot more dancing.

Below are some of our favorite moments from the day… and in no particular order, we’ll share with you some of them. We loved how Sarah and Dmitry exchanged handwritten letters to eachother. Dmitry’s best man was his son; we enjoyed watching how close of a bond they had together. A definite tear-jerking moment for us took place moments after the wedding ceremony had ended. Bride + groom had just exited the church sanctuary, and the best man quickly catches up to them. Without saying a word, the young man embraces his father with both arms.

Enjoy the preview below, and follow us on facebook to see more of our work! Congratulations once again to Sarah and Dmitry.
