Elizabeth and Thomas’ Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

Elizabeth and Thomas’ Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

    There’s nothing better than a love on fire; the kind that feels so big and so paramount, you can’t help but scream it from the rooftop. For every challenging moment we face in life, love somehow finds a way to grow bigger. It’s that growth – within love and within ourselves – that gives us a stunning start to forever. For Liz + Thomas, pursuing a friendship led to them falling in love – and we’re not the least bit surprised. The vibrant, explosive kind of love these two seem to share holds no bounds, propelling them through life with the comfort and security only your best friend can provide. Liz + Thomas’ wedding day at Carlyle on the Green was more than just a celebration of their incredible love – it was a promise to one another to always find forever in each other’s arms, no matter what. Thomas’ beautiful letter to Liz highlighted the many reasons why he would always love her, and as she read Thomas’ stunning words, you could see the twinkle in her eye intensify. One could only hope to find the kind of sweetness that Liz and Thomas will always share, and we were so honored to be there to witness the start of their forever. Congratulations, Liz + Thomas! We wish you plenty of incredible time on this mortal coil together! Photography | Denise Wine Photography DJ | Around Town Entertainment...
Five Videography Myths, Debunked!

Five Videography Myths, Debunked!

Wedding planning is so exhausting, and it can seem like a ton of work for one whirlwind of a day – believe us, we get it! But why spend time planning the perfect party if you won’t get to relive the words of wisdom your friends and family share exactly as they were spoken!? Yes, photos are incredible, and we work with tons of amazing professionals on your special day, but video preserves the visual elements, the rollercoaster of emotions, and the soundtrack to your first day as Mr. and Mrs. in a way photography can’t possible capture. Over the years, we’ve encountered hundreds of misconceptions about what we do as videographers, so we thought it might be fun to interview John Bilski, the owner and creative force behind Bilski Productions, and ask him to debunk a few of the myths that seem to hold couples back from choosing to have a video team on their wedding day! Kaitlyn Ferris Photography Myth 1: VIDEOGRAPHERS ARE OBTRUSIVE, AND WILL ONLY GET IN THE WAY. “Once upon a time, videographers would be in your way at seemingly every step you took, but not anymore! We make sure to blend into the background as much as possible during your special moments (such as the ceremony, the speeches, and your first dance) by tweaking the way things used to be done. Now, we use off-camera lighting to preserve the ambience of the room and utilize longer lenses, which allow us to keep our distance during those intimate moments with your new spouse. Our goal is to capture as many natural moments as possible, not ruin the special seconds you share with your favorite people!”...
Kathryn and Andrew’s Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

Kathryn and Andrew’s Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

  “So everybody, have you heard the news? Katie and Andrew are married!” Every time we capture a couple’s wedding day, there’s always something that deeply moves us, whether it’s their story, their families, or the way they love each other.  With Kathryn and Andrew, that special something was the way they laughed, cried, and embraced each other with such a fervor, we couldn’t help but stand back in awe. Their perfectly executed autumn wedding was stunning – with real trees as centerpieces and deep reds, oranges, and yellow at every turn – but to us, it felt like more than just decorations that filled each nook and cranny of Carlyle on the Green; it was a symbol of something greater. It has been said that, as a season, autumn is actually the beginning – the first. And for these two, their autumn represents the first time they stepped into the light, with their friends and families as witnesses, as husband and wife. And for us, being part of such a profound first was an absolute honor. Congratulations, Kathryn and Andrew! We wish you love, happiness, and an entire season of firsts for the rest of your lives.

Victoria and Marco’s Wedding at Vanderbilt Mansion

Victoria and Marco’s Wedding at Vanderbilt Mansion

  Vicki and Marco share one very special connection: the gift of language. When Vicki decided she wanted to learn Spanish, she took an enormous leap of faith and left her home on a journey that would set in motion the course of her life – to meet her love, Marco. After a chance encounter and a shared Guatemalan connection through a dangling chain on Vicki’s keys, Vicki and Marco became just that – Vicki and Marco. And in that moment, the language of love and Spanish merged, creating the perfect relationship we were honored to capture that warm, August day. From a gorgeous classic car to the lanterns that hung from the outdoor tent, Vicki and Marco’s wedding was an ethereal night overflowing with family, friends, and most of all, love for each other. Vicki’s stunning vintage-style gown and the way Marco looked at her as she floated down the aisle set the tone for the entire day, and as we watched them dance, and laugh, and smile together, we realized that we really do have the best jobs in the world. In an intimate letter to Vicki, Marco said, “I get to describe you with two words no other person on this planet can – my wife.” And we couldn’t agree with that sentiment more. Here’s to a one of a kind love! Congratulations! Photography | Lennon Photo DJ | Tommy’s Tunes Venue | Vanderbilt Mansion...
Jennifer and Vincent’s Wedding at Mediterranean Manor

Jennifer and Vincent’s Wedding at Mediterranean Manor

  Jennifer and Vincent were such an incredible couple, and after 12 years together (and on the day after their anniversary!), these two tied the knot in a fairytale affair that we’re still dreaming about. Their gorgeous day was filled with so much love and emotion, and watching these two fall in love over and over again during their creative session was super inspiring. Jennifer’s dress absolutely stunned as her and Vincent embraced, and we could see the undying devotion these two had for each other. As if the fairytale romance between them wasn’t enough, Jennifer even arrived at the aisle in a Cinderella-esque carriage, wowing all of her guests, and especially Vincent! Their beautiful ceremony was complimented by a reception full of dancing, extremely emotional toasts, and the love of their friends and family. Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you nothing but the best for your little family! Photography | Madison Ave Photography DJ | Perfect Parties Venue | Mediterranean Manor  ...
