Our last wedding of the year ended up in NYC, downtown Manhattan. The ceremony and reception were at the Lighthouse at the Chelsea Piers. Jen was getting ready at the Dream hotel, with an amazing view of the Empire State building. They even had a hot tub on the balcony, where the girls decided to take a dip for a picture. In November in 45 degrees, crazy. The ceremony was officiated by their friend and the ending had these confetti poppers that were perfectly timed with the kiss. So awesome. And watch the video for the reception decor, simply stunning.
A very rainy Long Island wedding day. It prevented us from doing any kind of shots outside. However we’ve got beautiful shots inside of the tent. There were these Christmas lights wrapped around the tent poles, that created a beautiful soft light.
Diana and Evan used a decorated classic Marathon car to arrive and leave the church. So much cooler than a limo. And we always love when the wedding ends with sparklers. We recorder that shot in slow mo, and it turned out fantastic.

I might have to explain the picture of the road on the top. When Maureen called us to do her wedding, she said that the route 30A, a famous scenic road in Florida Panhandle, made her decide to get married over there. We now understand why. We came a day early to Panama City Beach just to take a ride along the road and record some footage. It’s truly amazing. We really enjoyed our trip to Florida, even though it was like 95F and 100% humidity. Panama City has the worlds most beautiful beaches, the sand is like sugar. And as we found out, it is the capital of spring break. Luckily not at the end of July. I also love those southern trees, that are so low to the ground and covered with moss. Just like the tree on the cover of this film.
Maureen was wearing traditional Filipino wedding dress, and John wore a Filipino Shirt. They met in Philippines and got married few years back, however they didn’t really have a big wedding celebration. So they got remarried this summer at the St. John’s church and the celebration was at the Shark Tooth Golf Club. We are so glad they asked us to fly over to capture this beautiful event.
Ceremony was at the Trinitarian Congregational Church, Wayland MA and the reception at the Butternut Farm Gold Club. We have got so many great shots of family taking pictures. It always make me happy, when we capture these memories for our clients. Parents, grandparents, siblings. Those are the most important moments of the wedding, That is why we were hired in the first place. Later, we took golf carts to the other side of the course to do some shots of Ava and Brian by themselves at the sunset.
This is one of our all time most favorite we have ever done. I haven’t heard of Gwyn Careg Inn, so we didn’t know what to expect. However, now it’s our favorite place in CT for a wedding. The house feels old world and rustic and the garden is a photography oasis. All kinds of bushes and treas, stone walls and arches. Really cool place. I hope to come back for another wedding. But it wasn’t only the place that made us fall in love with this one. The pouring of emotions by everybody was just so overwhelming and heartfelt. Even when I was editing, my eyes got little misty. Update: This wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty, yay!
It also didn’t hurt to work alongside Ashley and Chris from Ashley Therese Photography. Fun guys.
