weddings

Sarah & Bryan | 10.21.18

Sarah and Bryan’s wedding took place on the shores of Lake Mohawk. It was one of those cold and sunny October days. The small and intimate bridal parties quietly helped the bride and groom get ready for their late fall marriage. The atmosphere would later be transformed with napkin hats and inflatable guitars. Jess watched another old friend get married, and the story goes on… —m+j

Sam & Meredith | 9.22.18

Sam and Meredith came to us through old friends. We really got to explore their venue, from the dim attic to the freshly cut pile of logs on the grounds. We love it when the bride and groom are up for anything! The floors shook as friends and family took the Horah into full swing, literally. We thought a few would fly off at the speeds they were moving. The sun set on a beautiful night, and the heartfelt speeches brought it all home. —m

Gabbie & Dave | 11.23.17

I opted out of my photographer duties and let Mark shoot solo so I could be a part of my good friend Gabbie's wedding. We traveled to Florida over Thanksgiving last year and watched her marry Dave in the backyard of her parents' house (so sweet!). We had a few days of gorgeous weather and when the wedding day came, we were greeted with torrential rain and a tornado warning (!), but everyone was all smiles regardless. These two were troopers and got a little wet but all in all the day was a total success. Sometimes I think how weird it is that I've known this girl for 10+ years; we used to share a tiny Manhattan apartment and belt out 'Newsies' songs while eating takeout during our college years. I'm so grateful for these long-lasting friendships, and so happy to have been a part of one of the most important days of Gabbie's life. xoxo -- j

Kara & PJ | 11.17.17

I think at this point Jess and I might be honorary McDonalds. Kara is the fourth sibling of the McDonald clan we've had the pleasure to shoot. Each of their weddings has been unique and Kara and PJ's was no exception. It was a cold, clear day in November with the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop. These two were troopers, even in the freezing cold! I think their classic taste is evident throughout these photos. As the last sibling to get married, this may be bittersweet, but I have a feeling we'll see all these familiar faces soon enough.  --m
