Jessica & Ross’ Wedding at Meadow Country Club
Jessica & Ross contacted me all the way from Texas when they were planning their wedding on Long Island for this April. They planned their wedding carefully and beautifully with the help of Jessica’s mother, who was living closer to the venue, Fresh Meadow Country Club. They did a fabulous job planning and the event was marvelous, featuring a plethora of white orchids, a fabulous Oscar de la Renta gown, and of course, Jessica & Ross themselves were beaming with love and happiness throughout the day! I started upstairs with Jessica getting ready up in the bridal suite and brought her outside for a first look with her handsome groom. The wind was a bit too much for us to continue shooting portraits outside but we gave it a shot (I mean it was seriously windy, you guys!) before heading back indoors. The Chuppah area where they’d have their ceremony was beautifully decked out with white orchids and roses and a lovely crystal chandelier, so naturally I shot the couple and their group portraits with this as a backdrop. Cut to a little while later and Ross is breaking the glass under this gorgeous Chuppah! Their cocktail hour featured an amazing array of delicious foods from around the world— meanwhile the staff expertly transformed the ceremony room into a reception complete with dance floor. The band kicked off this beautiful evening with gusto as Jessica & Ross enjoyed a first dance and a lively Hora—even their folks got in on the chair-lifting action! Probably my favorite part of the evening was hearing the wonderful toasts made by their fathers, maid of honor, and best man— these were such a testament to the couple’s character and commitment to one another, it was moving and beautiful to get such a window into their lives together. I couldn’t be happier for Jessica & Ross— congratulations on a beautiful wedding and the beginning of a fantastic marriage!
