Amy & Anthony were married on a beautiful summer day at St. Catherine of Siena in Greenwich, Connecticut. I started the day with Amy’s getting ready with her bridesmaids just down the street from the church, at J House. There was time for portraits and group shots after the ceremony so Anthony got his first look of Amy in her amazing dress and veil as she walked down the aisle toward him at the church. After a full mass and ceremony we gathered the family for portraits inside the church and then made our way to Belle Haven Club, a fabulous Greenwich yacht club where their tented reception would take place. While guests arrived the wedding party took a ride out into the harbor on the club’s launch and then made a grand entrance at the dock for Cocktail hour. At sunset the club’s canon was fired and flag brought down, a nightly tradition. As the reception unfolded guests were treated to a handful of warm and funny toasts from parents and siblings, as well as a few very sweet parent dances, a cake cutting, and a bouquet toss. The dance floor saw a lot of action– I’ve never seen so many people hoisted up on shoulders! The unique DJ-and-drums combination provided by Get Down Entertainment really took things to the next level, and the crowd went wild as they played favorite after favorite. At the end of the evening Amy and Anthony walked out on the dock and hopped on a boat to be taken back to their hotel as we all cheered and waved goodbye. Congratulations to Amy and Anthony on their fabulous wedding, it was an absolute joy to capture!
Mallory & Rory are to be wed next September at Pine Hollow Country Club on Long Island. They work in NYC schools and live on the upper east side, so naturally we shot their engagement portraits around their neighborhood, focusing on the beautiful Carl Schulz Park and promenade. These two are big fans of bridges, and the Queensboro Bridge is Mallory’s favorite so we hopped in a cab and ended our shoot at a spot in midtown she knew would be perfect to get it in the background after the lights went on at night. Check out my favorites from their shoot and check back in fall of 2018 to see their wedding!
