Real Wedding: Sireeda & Sammie

Posted by on February 12, 2012 · 1 Comment 

Sireeda booked us for day of coordinator services over a year before her wedding.

What some people don’t realize is that with our day of packages, we offer unlimited email throughout the contract, so you get to know your couples really well.  Sireeda was one of the funniest brides I’ve ever had, we had such a blast together.

They were one of the sweetest couples we’ve worked with and she had some of my favorite vendors.

Purple was a popular color for 2011 and she used it perfectly!

They had the most unique space for their ceremony.

Nassau County Museum of Art and it was absolutely gorgeous!

One of my favorite photos!

We then heading over to Chateau Briand where everything was executed beautifully!

Look at how adorable they are together!

Wishing Sireeda and Sammie a lifetime of happiness and health!

Real Wedding: Alyson & Chris

Posted by on February 5, 2012 · 1 Comment 

Back in the Fall of 2011 we had the pleasure of being apart of Alyson and Chris’s beautiful wedding day!

It was a gorgeous September day on the North Fork of Long Island, one of my favorite spots!

The area is surrounded by beautiful vineyards, beaches, mom & pap farms and vintage architecture. We tried to incorporate all of these in their photos.

We started the day at a local hotel where all the girls where getting ready!

Look at that gorgeous smile!

Alyson’s dress was one of my favorites!  I loved the gorgeous flower, a little bit of pop without overpowering the elegance of the dress.

We made our way to Macari Vineyard where we did a private reveal and then some bridal party photos!

This bridal party was so much fun!

Before heading to the reception we made a quick stop at this beautiful windmill and the beach

This is one of my favorite pictures!

The reception was in Baiting Hollow, Alyson had some really beautiful details and we helped make sure everything was set up accordingly.

A big CONGRATULATIONS to Alyson and Chris!  Thank you for choosing us to be apart of your special day!
