CRISTINA + GEORGE
Wowww Did you feel it?… There is just so much joy distilling from this gorgeous New York garden wedding! I now really think that all couples should consider having a post-ceremony parade through the forest accompanied by a brass band! I mean, how incredibly fun does this look? Documenting George and Christina’s wedding at the Caramoor gardens was a joy, and my team and I are delighted with how beautifully our images and videos came out.
The whimsical and magical setting that CARAMOOR GARDENS offered made it a natural choice for George and Christina who had tears in her eyes when she entered the stunning sunken garden where the wedding ceremony was performed.
The color palette selection, types of flowers and vases used in the flower arrangements, hanging flower centerpieces above the dance floor, every printed piece for the reception, the guest’s table, each moment from the parade to the way we walked the aisle, the Greek moment towards the end of the night… every detail and every moment was thoughtfully designed and planned by the bride who works in events herself. The groom was also very involved and designed every musical aspect of the wedding with her. They also did the wax seals for the invitations and made the headpieces for the Greek party moment!
Does this sound to you like lots of fun or is it just me?
When questioned, if is there anything you would change or do differently? The bride says: I wouldn’t change a thing. I wish that we could’ve made time stand still that day– everything goes by so quickly.
What advice would you give out to couples planning their wedding?
George and I are both creative directors, so the planning and creative directing of the wedding brought us closer than ever. We loved being a part of the process, and it made us appreciate everything the day-of even more. Enjoy those moments because they are special ones that will make everything on the day-of worth it! Oh, and the day goes by so fast so take time to pause, look around the room and appreciate how everyone there is celebrating your love for one another :)
