In early July we had the pleasure of working with Katherine & Rory. It was a hot day but thanks for an awesome photographer, we got some awesome shots.
We started the day getting ready with the girls in Whitestone
This is one of my all time favorite shots of a bride to be!
From Whitestone we headed to Planting Fields in Oyster Bay. This is a great location for photos because you have use of the entire estate.
They have beautiful arches throughout the Planting Fields that make not only stunning photos but fun!
The ceremony and reception took place at Crest Hollow Country Club. This is a perfect ceremony site with no decorate needed. It is beautiful all on its own.
Cocktail Hour was outside, pool side. This truly is one of my favorite places for cocktail hour. Again, no decoration needed!
Simply yet beautiful centerpieces and fantastic uplighting!
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs.!
A big thank you to Steven at SLR Photographer (www.slrphotographer.com) for sharing his beautiful work with us!
Just a spring was blooming, we had the pleasure to be apart of Vanessa & Tom’s day.
Vanessa is one of the most fun spirited brides I’ve ever worked with, she is always smiling and laughing!
Between an upbeat bridal party and working with one of my favorite photographers (Kiva @ Annandale Photography); we had a perfect day!
We started the day getting ready in Milford. Doesn’t she look amazing?
I was really excited to see her chapel. The chapel was located in Vanessa’s high school; Our Lady of Mercy in Milford. I attended the same high school on Long Island. The chapel was beautiful. The school has a nice tradition of ringing the bell right before the bride walks down the aisle.
The flowers were the perfect color combination for a perfect spring day. Plus, every girl needs some bling!
A very cool Ipad shot! Plus a little history; we were told years ago no one was allowed to step on these stairs per the convent tradition!
The new Mr. & Mrs.!
After the ceremony, we headed over to The Water’s Edge in Westbrook. The lighting was absolutely perfect for Kiva to work his magic!
One of my favorite photos!
We provided a candy buffet for guests, they went crazy for it!
Annandale Photography also provided a photobooth for guests which this fun crowd loved!
Wishing the New Mr. & Mrs. the best of luck!
Our last wedding of 2011 was one of my favorites. Melissa had a lot of similarities to my own weddings so maybe I am a little bias, lol.
We were hired as Day of Coordinators for her and Rob’s December wedding. Not only did Melissa do a beautiful job putting everything together, she chose some of our favorite vendors; Duet Photography (Jay’s team), AJ Ingoglia Films, After Hours Music and Camelot Limos.
Melissa definitely loved the bling!
Jay did a great job at capturing Melissa, doesn’t she look stunning in this photo?
And as a side note, this was one of the friendliest churches I have ever worked in!
Lots of churches are strict on having no petals or rice, so streamers are a great alternative!
The centerpieces tied in perfectly with the holiday decor
One of the best Father Daughter Photos I’ve ever seen! Melissa’s father was also one of the nicest dad’s I’ve ever met!
Wishing the new Mr. & Mrs. all the best!!!
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!
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!

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!
