This beautiful wedding was the embodiment of timeless romance and glamour. Jane's couture attire began with a pair of stunning Christian Louboutin shoes.

Her beautiful Monique Lhuillier lace gown is from the fashionable Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier in Manhattan. Jane's veil and headpiece were couture creations from Debra Moreland Paris.

Love this image of Ben when he sees Jane walking down the aisle in the garden at Arrows Restaurant.

The gardens at Arrows were in full flower. Even the signature cocktail, Citrus and Sake Vodka Martini, had a floral flourish.

One of many moments captured--Jane's delight at the best man's toast.

Jane and Ben--just married--on a romantic stroll on the Arrows' grounds in Ogunquit. Arrows is one of the most beautiful Maine wedding venues and a favorite place for us to photograph weddings.

And now for some fun--because this fashionable bride and her groom know
how to party as well. We set up The Love Seat (a fresh take on the old photo booth) with a natural backdrop and Jane and Ben's guests were beyond creative with their self-portraits.

The Love Seat is a huge hit with guests. Every time we post a new Love Seat slide show we get calls from clients to tell us they just have to have The Love Seat at their upcoming wedding.

ENGAGED: Danielle + Dave

Portrait Location: New York City's Central Park
Wedding Location: Atlantica, Westhampton Beach, New York

Dave and Danielle found us through the list of top ranked photographers in the Wedding Photojournalists Association and asked if David would travel to their August wedding in the Hamptons. Of course! D and D are to be married at the very cool Atlantica which sits right next to the dunes of Westhampton Beach. So how fitting to have a little "beach" volleyball action for their Central Park portrait session.

ENGAGED:Whitney + Spencer

Portrait Location: New York City's Central Park
Wedding Location: Camp Kieve, Maine

Whitney and Spencer are going to be married at Camp Kieve in Maine this fall. The camp is filled with kids in the summer and in the fall it turns into an amazing wedding venue where couples gather friends and family for a weekend of fun. It was great getting to know you two on this beautiful day in Central Park!

What a pleasure to spend this wedding weekend with Lauren and Damon and the hosts of this celebration, the wonderful Medleys, a family filled with southern charm and grace. The setting for this beautiful wedding is one of our favorite wedding venues in Maine, The Retreat at French's Point. Lauren was beautiful in a Vera Wang wedding dress with the mantilla that her mother Pat wore at her own wedding on this very same weekend in June, forty years ago.

The silver bell, passed from Pat to Lauren, a Medley family wedding tradition:

Lauren and Damon had a great first dance song, Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine":
