Bridget + Michael's Wedding

Who: Bridget and Michael

What: Summer wedding in Croton-on-Hudson

Where: Croton Point Park and Croton Resevoir

This was my 2nd wedding at Croton Point Park and it was such a pleasure to capture! Bridget and Michael’s summer wedding was chock full of adorable DIY details like the butterfly centerpieces that Michael made himself and rope-strung mason jars flower vases behind their ceremony trellis. The couple got ready in the park’s cabins, then we went to the New Croton Reservoir for their first look and portraits by the dam. Their ceremony and reception was held at Croton Point Park, which has beautiful trees and waterside views and is a perfect place for an outdoor summer wedding. After dinner and toasts, everyone went inside the lodge for partying and dancing. Bridget is from a family of dancers and she and all her siblings wowed everyone with a family dance routine! Congrats to this lovely and creative couple!

Who: Darcy and Charlie

What: a fun, sweet, and rockin’ wedding in the Catskills

Where: Full Moon Resort

Darcy is best friends with one of my oldest childhood friends and I’ve had the pleasure to know her for the last eight years!

Congrats!

Brian + Fabi

I have known Brian for almost ten years and am so happy he and Fabi decided to tie the knot! Brian is forever cracking jokes and I love how he always gets Febi to laugh – all the smiles in this session were 100% genuine! For this session we started out in East Harlem (home to many beautiful murals) then went to Ft Tryon Park in Washington Heights.

I’ve been lucky enough to know this beautiful family for almost 10 years since their girls went to the Hebrew school in Tribeca where I worked.

I loved all the DIY details for this lovely luncheon Bat Mitzvah in NYC. I also especially loved the theatrical elements of the ceremony where friends helped re-enact scene’s from that week’s Torah portion with help from Storahtelling. What a fun and meaningful event!
