Can I start out this blog by saying I love Emily? I love Jeremy too, don’t get me wrong!! Emily emailed me way back in July of 2012 stating she was a “huge fan” who’s been “lusting over our photographs” since we photographed her friend Carley’s wedding. She also said “I just got engaged and the first person I had to contact was you! I have been dying to have you take my wedding pictures for the longest time and now that I am finally engaged I am contacting you to see if this would be possible!” How could I not instantly love her??? Ultimately what happened was Emily and Jeremy picked our last free Saturday in October of 2013 and were at that point without a venue. They found and fell in love with the New York Botanical Garden for their wedding and the rest is history.
We set this wedding off bright and early at New York Botanical Garden. Their ceremony was at 11am and we had a first look scheduled prior to their nuptials. It was a cold but very beautiful morning, all the gardens were still wet with morning dew. Their first look was so pretty with the morning light coming through the trees. After that we shot as long as time allowed before their ceremony. I will say their officiant Lisa Zaro was one of the best officiants we’ve ever worked with in this business and deserves a shout out on my blog. What a courteous and professional person!! After their beautiful ceremony it was party time and boy did these wedding guests come get their jam on for this matinee wedding! The dance floor was PACKED all afternoon and Emily and Jeremy could not have enjoyed their wedding any more than they did. It was great documenting how happy everyone was!
Emily and Jeremy, our job is to wow clients and I hope we did so for you. Working with you guys was an absolute treat! You both come from awesome families so follow the footsteps of your parents and you’ll have many years of happiness. Thank you a thousand times for choosing us for your wedding!! Keep smiling!
