Blue Hill at Stone Barns Proposal / Fooling Francesca

October 1, 2018

How dreamy is a marriage proposal on an Italian seaside hill? That’s what Francesca expected on her upcoming trip to the Cinque Terre, but her fiancé had another hill in mind: Pocantico’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Watching her great surprise, we’re sure the day was just as dreamy. There was romance: an intimate dinner in the private dining room. There was weather: rain had just cleared. And there was that gorgeous new ring! The couple, who met dancing in a Bowery bar, will finally waltz off to Italy, where the ring will sparkle on that seaside hill.

Harvest on Hudson Wedding

August 18, 2018

Candice and Tom – Clear skies ahead –

We hear online dating can be shady, but it proved sunny for Candice and Tom. Blue skies gleamed at their June wedding in Hastings’ Harvest-on-Hudson’s garden, the bride glowing in satin and lace. Ok, there were rain clouds threatening Tom’s mountaintop proposal at the Hudson Valley’s Breakneck Ridge, but even they held off in time for Candice to say yes. Surrounded by family and friends amidst Harvest’s blooms, we forecast continued marital sunshine!

Royal Palace, Elmsford, NY Wedding

April 3, 2018

Chloefaith and Daren  – Share the Wealth –

We’ve seen our share of rituals during wedding shoots, but this was a new one: the Money Dance. An old ethnic custom, guests pay to dance with the bride and groom, and this couple’s generous guests showered them with bills. Not a typical accessory on a strapless ball gown, but there wasn’t much that was typical here. Talk about globalization: Chloefaith is Filipino, Daren African-American, and their reception was at an Indian restaurant. They met at church when Daren joined the choir, and their harmony still soars loud and true.

Sleepy Hollow, New York Nuptials

March 21, 2018

Karen and Matthew – No place like home –

We feel emotion at all the weddings we shoot, but this one was personal. The lovely bride was our daughter’s high school classmate, and her dad, our son’s soccer coach. And the venue was essentially in our backyard: our hometown of Sleepy Hollow. Karen and Matthew returned here from their home in Virginia to say their vows in her childhood Church of the Magdalene. Okay, so there was rain– it didn’t stand a chance against the sunshine in our hearts.

Harvest on Hudson Wedding

January 19, 2018

Stephanie and Joe – Cafeteria Crush:

Most courtships unfold in restaurants or movie theaters, not a school cafeteria, but Joe was up for the challenge. Stephanie was a nutritionist there, and he’d take breaks from his social studies classroom to flirt with her. It took many visits, then 10 “friendship” dates, but she finally acknowledged a romance. The rest of the school did too after the principal spotted them at a restaurant! There was nothing secretive about their August wedding, with plenty of co-workers celebrating at Hasting’s riverside Harvest on Hudson. We give their story a definite A plus.

Spring Lake, New Jersey Wedding

September 16, 2017

Margaret & Zack – A nonstop celebration

Margaret and Zack met at the 2009 Kentucky Derby, and their New Jersey wedding had a lot of racing around. Let’s see– vows at church, photos at Spring Lake’s landmark footbridge, more photos at the bride’s house beneath a sentimental tree, an ice cream stop at Strollo’s, the beach, the reception at the oceanfront Breakers Hotel with endless dancing and a fraternity brothers’ goblet gulp. We only stood still once, amazed to view our very first hatchet toss at the house stop! A lot more fun than a bouquet toss, for sure.

Amanda & Aaron – They’ll Take Manhattan

June 28, 2017

Forget Paris – for Amanda and Aaron, New York is the City of Love. Their romance spans all Manhattan: first date at the Boat Basin restaurant on the Upper West Side, marriage at City Hall downtown, and reception at Palma’s garden in Greenwich Village. In homage to another New York romance, their wedding day limo was a Harry Met Sally Checker Cab. Naturally we had to include the Brooklyn Bridge, the perfect backdrop for their photo shoot. What more could a girl from small-town Indiana and a guy from midland England want? Maybe a honeymoon in Bali, but we bet they won’t be gone for long. See the full gallery of images from Amanda & Aaron’s Wedding.

Ana & Sam – Speaking the Language of Love in New York City

June 28, 2017

If you wanted an image for springtime romance in the city, this wedding would be it. The setting: the elegant landscape of Manhattan’s Gramercy Park. The couple: the stunning blonde Ana and her handsome leading man, Sam. Add a sashed satin gown, elegant French-twist updo, white roses and black tux and our cameras almost shot by themselves! We wished they could have, since we almost wept along with Sam when reading Ana’s pre-wedding letter, and with Ana during her vows. No matter that Paraguayan-born Ana took her vows in Spanish… words were almost beside the point. Take a look at a select group of photos from Ana & Sam’s big day.

Grand Central Romance – Margaret and Zack

February 4, 2017

Galloping toward the finish

It’s no more horsing around for Margaret and Zack, who plan to wed this July in New Jersey. First meeting at the 2009 Kentucky Derby while students in Louisville, their romance became a race as well, flitting through several states between grad school and careers. Things slowed to a trot in 2015, when Margaret joined Zack in Atlanta, and they announced their engagement during last year’s Derby festivities. Seeing their joy during our shoot at NYC’s Grand Central, we’ll place our bets on their happily ever after.

Tarrytown House Wedding Celebration

November 30, 2016

Laura and Daniel – Long-term forecast: SUN

Most couples face obstacles, but weather usually isn’t one of them. Darkening skies threatened Dan’s beach proposal, and stormy ones threatened their wedding, but inside elegant Tarrytown House last October, all was sunshine. Laura beamed in strapless lace, bridesmaids shone in scarlet, and nieces and nephews formed a vivid parade. Watching the couple’s first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” we forecast only blue skies ahead.
