Amy-Jo and Paul's Super Fun Wedding at Sacred Heart and Anthony's Pier 9

After being either friends or a couple, but mostly both, for the greater part of their lives (they've known each other since they were in elementary school), Amy-Jo and Paul were married at Sacred Heart Church and celebrated with their family and friends well into the night at Anthony's pier 9.  These two are so completely adorable together and a total joy to be around!  It's no wonder that when they found each other, they never let go! 

There were many cute and personalized items at their wedding.  Only some of them are featured in the clip, but I wanted to make note of a few of my favorites. 

Amy-Jo's something borrowed and something new was an anklet that belonged to her grandmother that had a new charm attached to it featuring her grandmother's picture.

There were MANY items that had their names or initials and wedding date on them, but it wasn't just the things you would expect it to be on, like invites, programs and engraved toasting glasses.  My favorite finds were on the rustic wood slice attached to their program basket, the stickers on the bottom of the Hershey Kisses and the planter box that held chocolate lollypops on their candy buffet.  That magnificent candy bar display was designed and built by the very talented Lauren from Lauren Paige Associates.  It featured just about everything that anyone with a sweet tooth could ever imagine; M&Ms, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Licorice, Gummy Candies, Cake Pops made to look like a cake and Willy Wonka Pixy Sticks!

Amy-Jo was very excited about the props that she brought along for her photo shoot, like the frame in the photo at the top of the page, vibrant lime green umbrellas for the girls in the bridal party and my favorite one, the letters (one for each member of the bridal party) that spelled out their new status.  We worked at the side of Max from Maximillian Nucci Photography (along with his assistant for the day, Mark Kovner) to get some really cute shots with this very fun bunch!

Here is a preview clip from Amy-Jo and Paul's Super Fun and Sweet Wedding.  Hope you enjoy!

Lauren + Emilio: Highlights from a Beautiful Stone Church and Grandview Tent Wedding

Lauren and Emilio were married at St Patrick's Church in Yorktown, an old stone church with such charm and beauty.  After the ceremony, the couple and the bridal party did a balloon release orchestrated by Karin Hlywiak from Cinderella For A Day.

Their reception was held in the tent at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie, one of our favorite Hudson Valley locations.  What a gorgeous view you get from the tent!  It's awesome to watch the transformation from when the sun is setting and the glowing golden light fills the tent to the contrast of the night sky with the glow coming from the DJs lighting inside the tent, not to mention the lights on the Mid Hudson Bridge filling the background of our shots as the events unfold.

Between the side lawn with the stone walls and walkway at the church and the gardens and boat dock at the Grandview, we had plenty of opportunity to film the newlyweds in gorgeous surroundings.  We were alongside Cheryl Bolton Reuter for most of the photos she took that day.  For more photographs from Cheryl, check out her album on Facebook.   DJ Jimmy Lutz kept the crowd dancing all night.  Some of the best dancing moments can be seen in the clip below.  They were a happy bunch!

Here is a highlight clip from their wedding day.
