Jennifer & David were married on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in September at The Village Club at Lake Success on Long Island, NY I began the day shooting with Jennifer and her 11 bridesmaids as they got their hair and makeup done at the Garden City Hotel. My assistant shooter, Ryan, was over in another room with the groom and his men while they were getting ready, and then we jetted over to the Club where Jennifer would put on her dress and the guys would get their bouttennieres on. Jennifer looked incredible in her gown, and we knew David would be excited to see her as we set up for their first look. After some tearful moments upon seeing one another and exchanging thank-you’s for the morning’s gifts. we escorted them down to the shore of the lake for some portraits of just the two of them, and then met with their wedding party and families for group pictures just outside the venue. Both David and Jennifer’s father are avid golfers, so they wanted to make sure we got some shots with the course in the background, and we were able to get a few moments with them out on a little bridge in the middle of a nearby hole. After a moving Ketubah signing ceremony upstairs with the Rabbi we went back outside for their ceremony on the deck behind the main reception space. Guests were then treated to a cocktail hour on the patio and indoors as they liked, and then the evening got underway with a first dance from the couple followed by a lively Hora complete with the newlyweds ifted up over the crowd on chairs as their family and friends encircled them with loving energy. As always, the Marcus Reid band was fantastic and they kept the energy flowing for the rest of this wonderful evening as friends and family celebrated with the happy couple. Congratulations to Jennifer & David!
Amy & Anthony are getting married next August at Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, a place I’ve shot before and really loved. I was excited when they said they wanted their engagement shoot in Greenwich too, as traditionally during the wedding day it’s tough to fit time in to take a couple over to a place like Tod’s Point, which is the location you will see them shot at here. We had a gorgeous day, a beautiful sunset, and just the right amount of breeze in Amy’s hair. All in all, a great shoot! Check out my favorites from our walk around the beach, the shore, the yacht club, etc. If you’re ever in Greenwich and looking for a nice place to spend some time, check out Tod’s Point!
