Marisa and Josh’s Marble House Rehearsal Dinner, Newport, RI

Marisa and Josh’s Marble House Rehearsal Dinner, Newport, RI

Marisa and Josh’s Marble House Rehearsal Dinner

First of all, I have a thing for old mansions. Probably because they are mysterious and steeped in history, stories of fortunes, privilege and glamour. The Marble House in Newport, RI, is no exception. It was designed by the society architect Richard Morris Hunt as a summer cottage for the Vanderbilts. Therefore, it is an exceptional example of a Gilded Age mansion. As a result of the location perhaps, Marisa and Josh’s Marble House rehearsal dinner was definitely over the top. A true homage to the era of opulence. It was the opposite of a simple. Rather than choosing one or two of their great ideas, Marisa and Josh went for almost all of them!

Nothing Short of Exceptional

Due to the grand scale of the event, Elan Artists provided all kinds of immersive entertainment. A live “marble” statue greeted guests as they arrived. After dinner, for dessert there were “marble” cakes. To drink, everyone enjoyed a champagne tower. A live painter recorded the beauty as a painting. Most notably, everyone enjoyed in awe a Chinese Dragon and an opera singer! In addition, the florist’s choice of deep purple blooms made the flowers pop against the gold and black background of the Gold Room where dinner was held. It was an amazing evening and the perfect start to their wedding weekend.

Caroline and Robert’s Wedding Luncheon at the National Society of Colonial Dames, NY

Caroline and Robert’s Wedding Luncheon at the National Society of Colonial Dames, NY

Elegant Wedding Luncheon, Brimming with Love

Caroline and Robert’s late fall wedding luncheon brimmed with love. The entire day was incredibly personal. Because they chose a day in early fall, the color pallet was pale pink and berry. The bride’s dress was custom designed by Lee Anderson. There was a touch of whimsy on the floral sleeves. It suited her personality perfectly! It was her first marriage and his second. The groom’s gown children were their bridal party, which lead to many tender moments. The couple’s elderly parents also played a sweet role in their day. Most notably, when Caroline’s father walked her down the aisle, it was one of the sweetest wedding moments I’ve ever seen. There was a feeling of togetherness that comes across wonderfully in the pictures.

The Very First National Society Of Colonial Dames Wedding

Especially relevant to what made the day unique was that it was the first time a wedding was held at the National Society of Colonial Dames. The Society was founded in the 1890s for those women who are descendants of people who were crucial to the founding of the United States during the Colonial period. Caroline is a member of the Society. She took advantage of the beautiful space in New York for her intimate wedding of family and friends. Each detail they selected, from the table decor and florals, to Caroline’s gloves and fur accessories, to the string quartet courtesy of Elan Artists, was elegant and glamorous. Finally, the guests enjoyed a delightful meal in the gorgeous dining room, overlooked approvingly by portraits of the famous Dames. Special thanks to Claudia Hanlin of the Wedding Library for another flawless event.

Wanderlust, 8th Anniversary Trip, Washington DC

 
 
My hometown is Washington DC. 
 
I’ve been back to the area many times but not as a “tourist”. On this trip, for our 8th wedding anniversary, Frank and I viewed the monuments, including the newest one of Martin Luther King, Jr. We toured the Tidal Basin, the White House, the Capital, Arlington Cemetery, Iwo Jima and the Washington Monument, along with all the other tourists. On this trip, we wanted to ponder our democracy, where to some degree, we felt we have taken or freedom for granted. It was a trip of a lifetime, grounding, clarifying and inspirational. It seems fitting to post this iconic imagery on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday.
 
I took a few photos on our trip which I wanted to share here. 95% of these are film images with just a few shot with a FujiFilm xT10. I shot the film images with the Rollei, a Contax 645 and the Horizon, which is a panoramic 35mm camera loaned to me by Lomography to try out, (loved!). The film images were shot with Kodak film and processed by Indie Film Lab. Next time, I’ll bring a selfie stick too, promise.
 
Good morning DC, it’s good to see you!

Alexis and Jason’s Elegant NYIT DeSeversky Mansion Wedding, NY

Alexis and Jason’s Elegant NYIT DeSeversky Mansion Wedding, NY

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.

Danielle and Brendan’s Piping Rock Club Wedding, NY

Danielle and Brendan’s Piping Rock Club Wedding, NY

 A Meaningful Celebration

Danielle and Brendan’s Piping Rock Club wedding was the definition of a meaningful celebration. In the midst of planning, Danielle’s father was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and the couple reoriented their wedding to what mattered most – her father’s attendance. On the wedding day, “My father was well enough to walk me down the aisle,” she said. “And I was met by the most patient, supportive, and loving groom. It was perfect.” The bride and groom, Danielle’s father, and the rest of their family gathered together to celebrate not just their wedding but her father being there. I’m so glad I got to be apart of this amazing day to celebrate love and family.

Sophisticated Summer Details

With all the care in planning, from the amazing venue at the Piping Rock Club to the beautiful stationery from The Printery, every detail was perfect. The blues and golds with a pop of pink in the bridesmaids bouquets looked great for the summer affair. There was a modern yet classic feel to the day. Danielle’s Pronovias wedding gown and “something blue” shoes were perfect for their church ceremony, and for the celebration which lasted long into the night.
