It all started 5 1/2 years ago.  Kaitlin and Morgan met through Kaitlin’s maid of honor.  Morgan hit on Kaitlin for years until Kaitlin finally gave in!

“During a family trip Morgan took with his dad a few months into dating, happened to be a significant point in our relationship. We hated being away from each other, I love yous we’re already exchanged but when Morgan came home he took me on a date. I was sick but that wasn’t stopping me. We packed up our bikes and took a ride to Kismet, had drinks, then rode back to Field 5 to sit on the beach for sunset with a bucket of chicken and a bottle of wine! Man after my own heart! After that we unspokenly knew this was gonna be forever.” – Kaitlin

The couple dated for 4 years and on an overnight trip to Killington Ski resort, Morgan asked Kaitlin to marry him on the top of the mountain on their last ski run of the day.

Their wedding ceremony took place outdoors at the Fire Island Lighthouse.  The party continued on to Lands End where the couple celebrated their marriage with family and friends.

Jenny & Brett met at an ugly sweater party at Jenny’s cousin’s house years ago.  They hit it off that night in the hot tub and Brett invited Jenny to a hockey game.  The two were caught kissing on the “Kiss Cam” at the hockey game by Brett’s Grandpa who was watching the game on TV.  The two fell in love, got engaged and decided to celebrate their love by getting married at the beautiful NOW Onyx resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

My team and I had such an amazing time with all of our new Canadian friends.  We did both the photography and video on this wedding.  We provided coverage for their Welcome Party which consisted of fire dancers and a hora loca (crazy hour) with robots on stilts, special entertainers and dancers.  That night we partied at the legendary Coco Bongo with the bridal party and some close friends and filmed some amazing footage from inside the club.  We also provided coverage of the wedding day, catamaran cruise LaBarcaza, and a trash the dress shoot.

Joe and Jillian’s friend Jill (same name) lived in a dorm together when they both transferred to Cornell. Jill and Jillian were out for $3 Long Island Ice Teas and Joe and another person who had lived in the dorm with them came over to say hi to Jill. That’s how Jillian and Joe met for the first time and that’s also where they had their first date.

Joe and Jillian dated for 8 years when Joe decided to pop the question.  Jillian was gone for a bridal shower that day.  Joe asked her parents permission while she was gone. When Jillian came back from the bridal shower, the couple went for a walk in Oyster Bay along the water. They walked out to the end of a pier and began talking about their upcoming move to Boston. Joe was looking at Jillian funny, and when she asked him why he was looking at her like that, he reached for his pocket. He took out the ring, got down on one knee, and asked “Will you?” Since it took him 8 years, Jillian gave him some crap first before saying yes!

Their wedding ceremony took place at Jillian’s parents house.  It was the perfect backdrop for a beautiful wedding.  The Reception took place at the DeServersky Mansion.

“Our dating story is quite simple. The saying, the best things happen when you least expect it, I would say pertains to us. Neither one of us were looking for a relationship at the time and now 11 years later here we are. We met through mutual friends who were dating at the time. Anthony happen to stop by for a drink at the bar his friend was bartending at and was about to leave when his friend asked him to stay. His friend had told him that his girlfriend and two friends were coming and to stay so that he can meet them, so he did. At the time I was in my senior year of college it was a Thursday night and I rarely went out when I had class the next day. My best friend said she was going out but before was going to the bar that her boyfriend was bartending at first so I agreed to meet her there just for one drink. At the bar Anthony and I barely said one word to each other, we were introduced and sat next to each other but had no clue that either one of us were interested in each other, we were both shy. The night was short and we both went our separate ways that night. After that night, it happens that I told my best friend that I thought he was cute and he had happen to say the same about me to his friend, well they took matter into their hand and the next week had set up a double date, on April 1st, Aprils Fools of all days. We had a great time and have been inseparable ever since :)” – Krystle

“Anthony proposed on HIS birthday, I was 100% surprised as I never imagined he would do it on his own birthday. Every year for his birthday I always make reservations to go out to a nice dinner, usually a steakhouse. This birthday I had made reservation to go to a steakhouse called Strip House. It was one of our favorites and they had only had one location at the time which downtown. A few days before his birthday I had gotten a call from the restaurant letting me now that the downtown location was closed for a private event and that their new midtown location would be open and they could accommodate us there. The night started like any other, we sat down for dinner and enjoyed a good steak! When dinner was over Anthony excused himself to go to the restroom, at that time I called the waitress over to ask if she could bring a cake with a candle in it so we could sing happy birthday. When he came back the waitress and staff came with a candle and started to sing happy birthday. As soon as they were done the maitre’d came over to my side, with a plate that was cover and said “well we have a surprise for you as well” (Honestly the first thing that came to my mind was “oh nice, more dessert” lol) He uncovered the plate and sitting there was a beautiful blue Tiffany’s box wrapped with its traditional white bow. I was in shock, I looked at Anthony and he told me to open it. As I unwrapped it and got to the black box he took it, got down on one knee (in front of the entire restaurant), opened the box and there was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen, he took my hand and asked me to marry him. At this point I was crying and laughing, I was overjoyed and it was one of the happiest times of my life. He couldn’t have planned it better and completely surprised me.” – Krystle

Krystle and Anthony’s reception was at the beautiful Royalton Mansion on Long Island, NY.
