A Wedding at Tappan Hill

From our very first moments after meeting Andrea & Joe, we hit it off splendidly. It was clear they wanted their day to be a fabulous affair, and we’re so glad they wanted us to be a part of it.

Andrea looked simply amazing in her lacy designer Lazaro gown, and Joe’s broad smile showed how much he loved the way she looked when he first saw her. After the brief ceremony, their family and closest friends congratulated and welcomed them with hugs. We then went back into the historic church for a few minutes to get some portraits near the captivating Chagall and Matisse glass windows.

Then it was off to the fabulous Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill for their reception. We always love the beauty, helpful service, and fantastic food (thank you Andrea & Joe!) at the Abigail Kirsch venues, and this evening was no disappointment. The tables were beautifully spotlighted and designed to show the room off to its best.

After spending some quiet time with the couple for romantic portraits of just the two of them, everyone was in for a fantastic experience of cocktails, dinner, and dancing. It was a crowd full of warmth and energy, and we couldn’t have been more privileged than sharing the evening with Andrea & Joe and their favorite people.

The full gallery will be available soon in the “Client Proofs” area of our main website. If you’d like to leave a comment here for the happy couple or for us, just click the “Comments” link immediately above this entry.

  • Ulysses - Hello, Gorgeous! (notice the capital ‘G’!) So glad to hear from you! I know you must be having an awesome time in Mexico. Honestly, I wish we were down there with you! We do have our trip to the Caribbean later in the year, but being on the Mexican beaches right NOW sounds like a good idea, too. Andrea, we were so glad to have been there to share your day. It does go by even faster than you’d probably imagined, doesn’t it? But we’re going to have LOTS to show you for you to remember the day by. In a way, it’s just the beginning of gathering some beautiful memories. Talk to you soon, and looking forward to hearing from you again! Hugs to you both.September 18, 2009 – 8:15 AM

  • Andrea - Ulysses – you know me too well. Even though I loved the dress the headband was my absolute favorite! I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures and I can’t thank you and Jenni enough for everything. You both worked so hard all night and my family thinks you’re adorable. I will write you something more soon. We’re still in Mexico but I had to check the blog!September 17, 2009 – 10:44 PM
