It’s time for another ballerina series! This time I took my three favorite ballerinas: Chloe Freytag, Lexie Leigh, and Andrea Ramudo Virgin over to Joshua Tree Stables in Loxahatchee, Florida. These girls are the best!! Cuts, dirt, rain, heat, humidity, horsefly’s, frogs – didn’t matter. If I said climb it, climb through it, hold it, jump it, stand on it or stand in it – they did it, and with big fat smiles on their faces. I love each of you!! Using horses and the stable setting itself seemed a perfect setting to both match and contrast the grace and strength of the ballet movements. A big thank you to Samantha Guy for connecting me with the stables. Look for the white horse, it’s hers! Enjoy!
Here’s Howard and Kerrie’s spectacular wedding at The Breakers. One look through these images should tell you all you need to know! First and foremost, is the couple. A more genuine, down to earth pair you would be hard pressed to find anywhere. Kerrie wore an Ines Di Santo dress with jewelry from Kwiat in NYC. The men all had their tuxedo’s custom made by Tux Shop Palm Beach. Brooke Wright, the Florida contingent of Table 6 Productions, masterfully, took the lead in this extravaganza along with Jeff Fowler of The Breakers. Cameron Keating and his team from The Breakers Design Studio brought to life a stunning vision of each day’s themes. HyLite Productions thrilled everyone with their lighting. The rehearsal dinner was Tuscan themed with an authentic antique wood table designed with a table scape of artichoke and lemon topiary’s and fresh rosemary and lavender placed in stone containers. The dinner concluded with the consumption of $3k bottles of dessert wine Howard had flown in. The intimacy of the ceremony was created by a circular open air alter place in the center of the gold room carpeted in black with stunning cascading floral hedges that included peonies and anemone’s. The highlight of the evening was a live stadium seated performance by Michael McDonald. Needless to say the room went wild! Fusion took over for the after party and rocked the place for the rest of the night. Kerrie and Howard’s Mexican themed brunch was the perfect remedy for the ever present hangovers. It was designed with suspended paper garlands and colorful piñata’s. The table scapes were designed with handmade paper flowers and festive hibiscus. Enjoy!!
Here is Jenna & Erich at the magnificent Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange, NJ. Planned and designed and flawlessly executed by Breck Bouchard of The Bond Group, this wedding was a thrill to shoot. It had all the elements: an amazing down to earth fun loving couple, two families with intense emotional connections and affection for their children, a stunning ceremony location and reception site. The Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Newark, New Jersey where the couple exchanged vows is the only church in the US that was visited by the Pope. It leaves you breathless. This wedding was truly and deeply about family and I drew my inspiration from that. These previews can only capture a small taste of the richness of those bonds. Also, it was great to be working with Ray Roman again, who is btw, easily one of the best videographers I’ve ever worked with. Enjoy!
