View this elegant Westbury Manor wedding video on our blog. It was an absolute winter wedding fairytale to make any heart overjoyed.

The Couple

Gertrudes and Elwyn are such fun loving people and we had such a great time capturing their day. As they started the day, both the bride and the groom’s rooms were filled with laughter and fun. They were so relaxed and excited the entire day, and this is exactly what type of couple they were. Throughout the day they made sure to enjoy every single second of each other, and this is what a wedding is all about. I always stress to my couples that even though the little details are important, the most important thing in your wedding is celebrating your love. This is exactly what Gertrudes and Elwyn did!

Their Guest

In addition to the couple, everyone around them was incredibly excited and emotional that this day had finally come. The bridesmaids were crying throughout the day, and if that doesn’t show how much they are loved, I don’t know what does. We remember meeting with Gertrudes for the first time, and she came accompanied with her maid of honor. We knew from then that this was going to be a wedding filled with love, not only from the couple, but from their bridal party and guest.

The Ceremony

Gertrudes ceremony church, Our Lady of Angels was definitely breath taking. With it’s beautiful windows,  high ceilings, and paintings, it was fit for a grand wedding. We loved every single part of their traditional ceremony. Even more so, their officiant was energetic and uplifting, reminding everyone in the room of the love they had come to celebrate.

The Westbury Manor Wedding

The Westbury Manor located in Long Island is always such a beautiful, romantic location for a wedding. As soon as you came in the room, you were overwhelmed with beauty. Day’s Desk Weddings made sure the day turned out flawless and every detail in the room was perfect. It was truly a beautiful winter wedding in New York!

Jane’s Carousel Dumbo Engagement Session

We all know that the weather in New York City during winter months can be totally unpredictable. This snowy dumbo engagement session is proof of that. Tannie and Kevin wanted to have a magical and unique engagement session and that is exactly what they received. What looked like a normal overcast day turned to be just magical when beautiful snowflakes began descending from the sky as we started our session near Jane’s Carousel in Dumbo. This lovely touch of beauty made this dumbo engagement session much more cozier, unique and romantic.

Tannie and Kevin braved the cold weather for the entire duration of the session. Although in between we made a little stop at One Girl Cookies to grab some espressos and gain some energy to culminate this dumbo engagement session on a high note. We are just amazed by their perseverance and their ability to go above and beyond to reach perfection on their lovely session.

The Couple’s Love Story

We always like to connect with our couples, so we went ahead and asked Tannie how did Kevin proposed to her and she said “ It was very unexpected. On June 17th, 2016, Kevin and I went to Spruce Street Harbor park in Philadelphia.  It’s on the water and they have all sorts of lights, food trucks, boats and things like that.  As the night went on we went down by the water and started playing “the question game”.  We were asking eachother silly questions like “how much do you love me?” or “do you love me more than ____?”.  We decided to record it so that we can have some memories and as we were recording Kevin randomly just asked me “Do you love me enough to marry me?” and put the ring in front of the camera.”  This proposal was sweet and intimate indeed.

Following this, we decided to ask her about him and she said: ” Kevin was different from everyone else. I was drawn to him because he took the time and was interested in getting to know me mentally and emotionally. Kevin is fun, silly, caring, happy, positive and loveeesss sports!!!”

After hearing these loving words from her, we decided to ask Kevin about how he felt about Tannie and he said “She is my better half and she makes me better every day by just being herself.  Getting to know her has made my days better even when I think they can’t be.  I am extremely grateful for everything she is as a person.”

We truly believe that they were made for each other. Looking at their reactions when they are together,  the constant display of love are proof of the unconditional love they hold for one another.

What a beautiful Texan wedding at the Fort Worth Stock Yards. View their heart-warming wedding video on the blog!

The Bride and Groom

This wedding at the Stock Yards in Fort Worth, Texas was a dream. First of all Holly and Brian are such a super sweet couple, and working with them on their wedding day was not only fun, but emotional. These two love birds were really excited to get married and their friends and family joining them were excited to witness this, and we couldn’t imagine who wouldn’t be. Holly is seriously one of the most thoughtful and serving people I have met, and I know Brian compliments this. They deserve the best in what life brings them, and we know their guests feel the same way!

 

The Venue: Fort Worth Stock Yards

Without a doubt the venue location of this wedding was such a gorgeous, rustic place to have a wedding. If you want a wedding venue that screams Texas, the Fort Worth Stock Yards does this. In all the time we’ve been in this state, we never felt more Texan. Outside the venue you could see bulls and horses. In addition, the rustic features, such as brick flooring, made this wedding incredibly beautiful. Can we also add, that the traditional Texan food served here was also, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

 

The Ceremony and Reception

Throughout the day there was much tears and laughter. The ceremony was intimate, and had plenty of people including the couple, crying tears of joy. Then in the reception, the maid of honor and best man’s speech were truly heartwarming, but made sure to make everyone in the room smile.  On the other hand, the reception was fun an upbeat, with a talented live band running the show. Everyone in the room was up dancing and having fun. It was really a great way to end the night and celebrate Holly and Brian’s Love.

The Bride and Groom:

Jasmine and John are completely adorable. We knew their wedding was going to be the real treat from the moment we sat down with them in our consultation. All the details, the dedication and the sentiment put towards this fabulous Sand Castle wedding was just incredible. During their “Dumbo Engagement Session” we got to see their personalities in full swing and this made us jump of happiness because we knew their wedding was going to be just like them romantic and filled with passion. From the moment we arrived to their getting ready location at Viana Hotel & Spa we just got lost in the fun and the emotion. First, as we walked into the suite we saw Jasmine and let me tell you she was absolutely stunning. Everything was perfect from her stylish hair and make up to her beautiful wedding dress to her gorgeous pair of Badgley Mischka heels.

 

Sand Castle Wedding:

The Sand Castle was the perfect venue for this wedding. It’s beautiful sceneries are the perfect landscape for capturing love. There are not many places in New York City with as much glamour and elegance as the Sand Castle. In addition, the interior of the venue is as beautiful as the exterior. Futhermore, the ballroom is complemented by aesthetically placed chandeliers that scream elegance as soon as you walk into it. Once inside the venue every detail  was carefully situated to be pleasing to the view of the guests. Finally, we are extremely thankful for having been able to capture Jasmine and John’s gorgeous Sand Castle Wedding.

This wedding at the Sand Castle in Long Island, New York will have you in tears. It was truly a fairy tale! View it on the blog!

The Couple

John and Jasmine are two of the sweetest people on the planet. Since we met them for our consultation meeting, we were so excited about their wedding, and were looking forward to document their love. They are so filled with love for each other and others, and it was apparent through their entire day that they are truly loved because of this.

Their love story began as teenagers in church, and matured as they matured into beautiful caring adults. The entire room was in tears, as Jasmine’s sister let us know, that her dads last piece of advice was for them to take their time. This advice has led them to this moment that they have been waiting for. Everything about this night was magical, and something each of their family and friends were waiting for in anticipation.

The Sand Castle and Viana Hotel

Both the Viana Hotel and the Sand Castle were beautiful venues to capture their day in. Getting ready at the Viana was relaxing for everyone there and provided such a beautiful scenery. In addition, the Sand Castle was absolutely breathtaking in every way. We were lucked out that it stopped raining, just in time for the ceremony and first look, so they were able to take place at the Sand Castle’s beautiful outdoor space. However, the indoor space was also spectacular. Everything from the revolving sweet heart table to the bartenders coming from the ceiling had everyone in awe and really had the party started.

Entertainment and Decor

Talking about party, Genesis Events provided an upbeat party that had everyone dancing and having fun. It was truly epic. Adding to this, the decor provided by Pedestals florist made the room look even more spectacular and dreaming, The combination of awesome professionals and a truly great couple made for a fairytale wedding.
