Kristin & Steven - Highlands Country Club

This is a wedding from 2012. I had posted my own images at the time, but whenever possible I always like to follow up with professional images. It serves multiple purposes: to highlight my work using the best possible photos, give some additional publicity to some of the incredibly talented photographers that are out there in the wedding world...and most importantly to showcase my couple again! I really get connected with the couples I design for...and never get tired of looking at their incredible weddings!

Kristin and Steven were married in the Hudson Valley at the Highlands Country Club in Garrison, NY. I always enjoy having weddings in my old stomping grounds!

We are lucky to have these beautiful images from the very talented husband and wife team of Robert & Kathleen Photographers.

Rebecca & John - Whiteface Lodge - Lake Placid

Rebecca and John were married at The Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid in August. All my couples are special to me. However this wonderful bride is special to my whole family and loved dearly! After all, kids love their teachers (as do their parents)! Rebecca was our oldest daughter's third grade teacher and our youngest daughter's kindergarten teacher. We were so lucky to have Rebecca in our family for several years and I couldn't be happier for her and John!
