Ossining Waterfront Covid Wedding – Carol and Clifford:

August 22, 2020

We shoot many weddings, but this was one for the ages. And we don’t mean the couple’s literal ages. Fifty years after Carol’s freshman enrollment at NJ’s Ramapo College and nine years after Clifford’s Professor retirement there, they graduated to husband and wife on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining’s Engel Waterfront park. The decades in between saw long marriages, widowhood, advanced degrees and illustrious careers. But last year, it was an ordinary college anniversary alumni survey that united them, with program committee member Cliff, now 79, stunned at her responses’ and accomplishments. He called Carol, now 78, invited her to visit the campus with him and meet the anniversary program committee, and the result found us a year later celebrating their marriage, as did The Patch; CBS, TV’s “Talk of the Table,” where Gayle King enthused that their story gave her hope; and The NY Times, which gave a guitar-strumming Tim a photographic cameo!
