This has to be one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen.? I am not just saying that because she is a friend of mine, but she just glows happiness and gorgeousness.??? I first met Jen when we worked together? several years ago, when I was an exercise physiologist.? I believe I had just returned from maternity leave and she was expecting her first daughter.?? So there was a lot of mommy and baby talk between us.?? She knew my passion for photography and dream of taking it to another level.? In fact, her daughter was one of the first babies I ever shot as well as the first birth announcement I ever did.?? So when her and Tim got engaged, I was just thrilled that she asked me to shoot her wedding.??? I knew she would be a fun and laid back bride.? When she told me? that her wedding was on the same day as the owner of The Riverview’s son’s birthday party, and there would be a bouncy house, my first question was,? “Can we use the bouncy house?”? And that they did:


The wedding itself was so sweet.? They first remembered those who could not be there for this special day including grandparents and the brides dad.? Because they already have a daughter together, they included her in the ring ceremony by presenting her with her very own “Cinderella” ring.? That just brought tears to my eyes.



After the wedding we had very little time to get through family and wedding party photos, but I did have a moment to steal the bride and groom. I quickly tossed? them into my car and my assistant drove us to Main Street on Hastings-On-Hudson, where we captured some really hot bridal photos.?? The groom reminds me of the lead singer of a British rock band.? Very cool and hansom.? His bride, just stunning!






This wedding reception was like the try outs for “Dancing With The Stars.”? The guests at this wedding has some GREAT moves.? Not sure if that was due to the cocktail hour ;)? At one point, there was a dance off, jackets came off, and there was break dancing and all.? I do have to mention the DJ, he was just awesome with getting the party started and keeping it going.
