Rachel & Scott’s Wedding at Lyndhurst Mansion
Rachel & Scott were married on the grounds of Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown. We started the day capturing their getting ready at the Doubletree hotel just down the street, and all were in good spirits– the rainy day forecast had shifted enough that we were all confident about having the ceremony outdoors! Sure enough, the weather held and we didn’t see a single drop. I loved getting to shoot portraits of this amazing couple around the beautiful grounds of the castle. They looked like a fairytale under this enormous tree and I found a patch of lavender to shoot them with that matched perfectly with the bridesmaid dresses. We met up with the wedding party and started to make group shots only to stumble upon a bees nest of some kind just as things were getting going. A few of us got stung but the biggest worry was that one of the groomsmen had a bunch of bites and was potentially allergic– Scott actually has a history of working in the medical field so he was calm under pressure and quickly knew to call an ambulance… while our groomsman was being taken care of we moved on to family group shots– and the good news is he was OK and even made it back in time for the Ketubah ceremony! We were able to gather the wedding party just after the ceremony to do the group shots we hadn’t gotten to before what with the bee sting situation, too. Emotions were running high but Rachel and Scott handled the whole situation so beautifully, it was a testament to what a great couple they are and how much care they put into their relationships with their families and friends. As the ceremony, vows, and later that evening the toasts from parents and siblings also attested, these two are a perfect fit and they both feel so lucky to have found one another. After their ceremony guests were treated to a cocktail hour at the carriage house and a tented reception with a live band that kept people on their feet all night. Rachel & Scott are an absolutely radiant couple and I was so honored to capture this wedding! Congratulations Rachel & Scott!
