An Elegant Wedding at NYIT de Seversky Mansion
Sometimes I get lucky, in that I get to capture the happy moments of more than one member of a family. This is one such story. I met Alexis at her sister’s wedding at The Lotus Club in New York a few years earlier. I was thrilled when she asked us to photograph her wedding to Jason. She’s only gotten more beautiful since I first met her, and her wedding was straight from a dream, or The Great Gatsby. Alexis is a violinist and Jason is an architect. They met through friends. He proposed to her in Central Park during the big snow storm Jonas, the biggest blizzard New York has seen in a while! I don’t know how he convinced her to go for walk, but he did, somehow found the gazebo he had in mind, and she said yes!
A Simple, Timeless Affair
The wedding was held at the sprawling NYIT De Seversky Mansion. Alexis and Jason got ready there, and then headed to St. Patrick’s Church in nearby Glen Cove for their traditional Catholic ceremony. The church and ceremony were absolutely beautiful. They walked out the arched doorway afterwards, where their friends and family were waiting to see them off by blowing bubbles, filled with good wishes of course! Riding in style in a Rolls Royce classic car, we headed back to the mansion, with plenty of time to take portraits of the couple. They could have been from a bridal editorial due to Alexis’s flawless look and the gorgeous architecture in the main De Seversky Mansion staircase. The party went long into the night, with Alexis and Jason only pausing long enough for a quick photo by the lake at sunset, and a kiss goodnight on the front steps.
