The New York Botanical Garden is one of my absolute favorite venues to photograph weddings.

As a nature lover,  it is a dream to photograph a wedding at NYBG,  as there are endless backdrops to work with that look beautiful in any season.

The New York Botanical Gardens is now a National Historic Landmark containing over one million plants as well as the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, a Victorian-style Greenhouse.

When Caitlin and Robert contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was especially excited because the world renowned sculptor;  Dale Chihuly’s glass art was being featured throughout the gardens.

Further, one of the first things Caitlin told me was that she would be wearing a cape.

I had never photographed a bride wearing a wedding cape before and I hope this time will not be my last.

I was smitten with it. Her wedding dress ensemble with the cape was stunning, unique and a lot of fun to photograph – fitting her and her personality perfectly.

Sharing some of my favorites from their special day.

As an animal lover and pet owner, I totally understand this.

Chase was either sitting on Cait’s lap, following her around or staring at her with goo goo eyes from a distance the whole morning.

Both Moms, along with Caitlin’s Dad and bridesmaid worked really hard to steam/iron out the wrinkles of her wedding dress and cape.

I love Robert’s jaw dropping expression upon seeing his beautiful bride.

Caitlin and Robert wanted their family and bridal party present for their first look.

I asked if they would consider not using their Cell phones. I am so glad that everyone agreed.

Had everyone used their cell phones I would not have been able to capture their reactions being present in the moment.

I love their emotional expressions in the background, much better than staring at an electronic device.

I am so happy to share another Jedediah Hawkins Inn wedding on my blog.

I had always hoped to photograph a wedding at Jedediah Hawkins Inn and this year I got my wish twice over.

From the architecture to the stunning grounds and gourmet food your wedding day will be unique,  visually beautiful and a memorable day for all your guests.

Moreover, I like the idea of couples returning to the Inn for their anniversaries or a North Fork weekend getaway, as it will forever hold a special place in their hearts and minds.

Jedediah Hawkins Inn is not only a boutique hotel and renowned restaurant on the North Fork, but it is an absolutely charming venue to host your wedding.

It  has the feel as though it is your home for the day and everyone that you love is invited over to enjoy it.

Guest book sentiments – I especially love the adorable note by one of the Ring Bearers…”Have a Happy Life…Ha Ha.”

I am so grateful to have photographed another wedding at Jedediah Hawkins Inn and I hope to return one day in the future.

Special thanks to my talented friend Sherry Pickerell for second shooting for me.

I am so excited to share this Wolffer Estate Vineyard wedding.

Wolffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack New York is known for it’s outstanding wine and breathtaking beauty.

I had been hoping that I would photograph a wedding at Wolffer for some time, so when Joanna and Jonathan invited me to document their special day I was grateful and excited.

Upon meeting them I was even more excited as they adore each other and have amazing chemistry.

My photography coverage with Joanna and Jonathan began at their first look in the vines.

Their first look was beautiful, emotional and romantic.

And as a result I am sharing more photos of this segment than I usually do.

Such a poignant moment of the bride’s mother sweetly singing “Sunrise/Sunset” from the musical Fiddler on The Roof to Joanna & Jonathan

A snippet of the lyrics:
“Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

I don’t remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he get to be so tall?

Wasn’t it yesterday
When they were small?” ~Sheldon Harnick

The rest of the lyrics are equally as stirring.
After the wedding, it prompted me to pull up the song on You-Tube for a listen…it really touched my heart.

Excited to share Laurin and Rick’s recent wedding photos at Oceanbleu Beachfront Catering in Westhampton Beach.

Laurin is a talented artist and fashion designer whose vision for a Gatsby themed wedding came together beautifully.

Most of the details were designed and handmade by Laurin, like their wedding invitation below as well as her second dress that she changed into for their reception.

Daniela & Justin chose to have their engagement session in the suburbs of New York City at Fort Totten Park in Bayside Queens.

What a fantastic choice!  I love photographing in new places and Queens New York brings back a lot of nostalgic memories for me.

Fort Totten Park has the perfect combination of history, architecture, nature and spectacular views of the Throgs Neck Bridge.

And using architecture and nature allows me to use symmetry, space, framing and color as a backdrop to their images.

Daniela & Justin met at a Tom Petty concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

They each had single tickets that were seated next to one another.

How amazing is that?!

I love the beginning of their love story and I feel so grateful to be a part of their wedding this Fall as they bring their story full circle at another theatre – The Suffolk Theatre .

Sharing some of my favorites from their engagement session.
