What a fun session this turned out to be! This was the first time I’d met Diane and Eric, and they turned out to be another great couple to work with. Fun, easy going, interesting people who clearly feel a really great connection with each other. I think it shows in the photos…see what you think. We’re looking forward to Diane & Eric’s late summer wedding at Saratoga National! In the meantime, enjoy these photos, and we’ll have more for you after the wedding!
Kimberly and Jonathan had a beautiful day for their wedding, and I’m not surprised–Kimberly didn’t miss a thing in planning her wedding, and I’m pretty sure she even ordered up the perfect day! We really enjoyed working working with this great couple, all through the planning stages and especially on the wedding day. Hope you enjoy the photos!
I love these guys! We clicked from the first moment we met, and I knew we were going to have a lot of fun together. Proof of that came in the Engagement Session that we shot at Shelburne Farms, near Burlington, VT–you can check that session out here. As the months passed and the wedding plans came together, it became more and more clear that this would be a truly special event. I’d never shot a wedding at Fasig-Tipton before (they’ve only done a few), but I knew it would be awesome–elegant and unique, and how much more “Saratoga” could it possibly be!
What a group of pros helped make this day everything it was. My buddy On Thai from Surroundings Floral Design, along with Wendy Lawrence and her Fine Affairs crew, made the place look spectacular. Connie Slocum and the Mazzone Catering team outdid themselves with the food and drink, and that’s saying a lot! Add City Rhythm to the mix, and you’d have to admit, we had a really great party! Oh, and I don’t want to forget that the bride looked amazing in her dress from Something Bleu Bridal, with compliments to Denise, Teri, and Allison.
All the very best to a special pair!
I love getting to know the unique aspects of every couple’s story, but sometimes, the stories are nothing short of amazing. So…in his first message to me, Fergus referred to a “secret wedding”, which he was planning from Ireland, where they live. That got my attention, but I still didn’t understand at that point that he meant it was a secret from everyone, including Dee! There’s more to all this—Fergus and I had a pretty amazing email exchange going—but suffice it to say that he pulled off something really beautiful, in every way.
Dee loves the ocean, so what better place than Montauk, right! When they arrived in NY from Dublin, Fergus had made all the arrangements for a shopper at Bloomingdale’s to help Dee find her dress; he had (really gorgeous) rings made; the minister was booked; the florists had their instructions; and they had a very cool cottage on the beach at Gurney’s Inn. If you’ve never been out to Montauk, it’s worth the trip, as the beach there is as beautiful as they come. There were lots more details I won’t even mention here, and Fergus had thought of all of them.
So far, this story is all about Fergus, so we were really excited to meet Dee on the day of the wedding. She turned out to be 100% fun and warm and just full of energy. Not to mention absolutely beautiful! We spent the afternoon shooting on the beach and then drove into East Hampton, too. When it was time for the ceremony, we did a 1st Look, when Fergus saw Dee for the first time in her wedding dress. The sun was half out for the ceremony, and the light was spectacular. Maybe the coolest of many amazing moments that day was seeing Dee’s face as Fergus put the ring on her finger—needless to say, she liked it!
Enjoy the photos, and join me in wishing this amazing couple all the best for a lifetime of happiness together.
