SKYLANDS MANOR ENGAGEMENT: JOE + HANNAH (C&CO: KERI)

- - - Guest post by our team photographer Keri - - -

Hannah and Joe are the kind of couple that are almost too good to be true! From choosing the perfect location to their flawless outfits and their classic beauty this session is one from a dream. But the best part of all is that they are super sweet and so much fun! We had a great time laughing and getting to know each other during their session. I loved comparing our favorite spots in Lake George and hearing all about the amazing wedding Hannah and Joe are planning. I seriously can't wait for their big day next June! Congratulations you two!! 

Hannah you are so gorgeous!

CENTRAL PARK LOEB BOATHOUSE WEDDING: MIKE & ALANA

Where do I even start with this wedding?! It was an ominous morning in NYC as rain spat across the windows of the Warwick Hotel, but man oh man did we luck out with GORGEOUS sunshine in the afternoon! Alana and Mike's sunny personalities lit up the day from start to finish, from the not-quite-a-first-look, to the gondola ride that delivered them to the Loeb Boathouse reception! I think we all felt like we were in a movie as we adventured through some of the most iconic Central Park scenes. I certainly felt a bit like a director while posing a 27-person wedding party at Bethesda Terrace with a hundred or so onlookers! The day ended with one EPIC dance floor that included two limbos and a spin-the-bottle style dance circle (where you dance-off with your partner instead of kiss haha)! Alana and Mike, you are beautiful inside and out and we wish you all the best!

When torn between wanting to remain traditional but also wanting to see your fella before the ceremony, do a "semi First Look." Mike and Alana read sweet notes from each other while holding hands around a corner. The excitement had built up so much I was sure one of them would jump around the corner out of impatience! 

The Manhattan College chapel might just be my new favorite place! I'm swooning over the architecture! 

We arrived to Central Park after a hilarious trolley ride from Manhattan College!

I am forever obsessed with Jenny Yoo! Literally the most beautiful bridesmaids' dresses! 

The detailing on this Anna Campbell gown is divine!

One of my favorite moments was this champagne toast with the newlyweds on a gondola about to float across the water to the The Loeb Boathouse at Central Park! 

When time allows, I LOVE doing a same-day slideshow of the wedding photos! Guests are always amazed to see photos so quickly and seeing their reactions gives me all the feels! 

Congratulations Alana and Mike!!! <3

WAINWRIGHT HOUSE WEDDING: GREG + MAUREEN (C&CO: LAUREN)

One of the things that excites us most is when a couple describes their wedding as "fun and relaxed with the focus on family and friends." Those are happy keywords that tell us a couple will be amazing to work with, and Maureen and Greg have totally proven us right! These two wanted a relaxed summer celebration that felt intimate and special, yet super fun and upbeat - and they nailed it! The champagne and blush color palette created a sense of romance, while their fun and bright florals embraced the fun. Their choice of an Irish band at cocktail hour helped kick off the party with gusto, and the Wainwright House continued the beauty and energy into the evening! Congratulations Greg and Maureen!!! 

Love these "something blue" shoes!

Sweet moment between bride and momma! <3

First Look with Dad!

This lavender field at the Wainwright House is so magical!

Being lakeside in the summer is just the BEST!

It may have rained during the reception, but the sun came out just in time for magical sunset photos and a RAINBOW!!! <3 Congrats again Maureen and Greg!

STONE HOUSE AT STIRLING RIDGE WEDDING: JAMES + SAMANTHA

Congratulations to Samantha and James on their Stone House at Stirling Ridge wedding! These two had such a heartfelt and emotional day. From the sentimental tears between Samantha and her sister in the morning, to the sweetest ceremony led by Samantha's father, to the most hilarious Father/Daughter dance yet - this wedding covered EVERY emotion! James & Samantha, your wonderful love for each other was written all other the beaming faces of your friends and family! May you have many happy days to come! And of course, the Stone House at Stirling Ridge was beautiful as always with all its perfect little nooks to create portraits like this!

All it took was "Sam go ahead and look at your sister!" First cry of the day for everyone! 

Daddy-Daughter First Looks are always so full of emotion! <3

SO. MUCH. JOY.

Samantha, you are BREATHTAKING!

Caught in the act! ;)

Samantha and her dad chose "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" by Silentó for their dance and it was HILARIOUS!

Samantha and James, thank you so much for the honor of being with you on this amazing day! xoxo!
