Alden and Ethan

Alden’s mom Kitty was in the process of staging an amazing production when we met only 5 months before the big day. I had been recommended by her other vendors (Thank you Sous Son of Silverstems, Sally of Palate Pleasers and Silvia of Rentals to Remember!) and would have been devastated had she not chosen me as the photographer! I had not even met the B&G who were living in London at the time, but I was still so excited about all of the elements. The B&G and their friends turned out to be tons of fun, the weather was perfect (I know….on the verge of raining all day is not what most brides would pray for on their wedding day, but the light was just so soft and the sky so dramatic!) and I had Alison with her artistic eye to shoot with me. Thanks to all for making Alden & Ethan’s day such a pleasure to document!


The Stoner’s house was so much fun to shoot in. Lots of large, open rooms with clean lines, tons of light, and great art!

This girl belongs on the cover of a magazine!

I had envisioned a shot like this when I first saw the Zen garden. The purple dresses are perfect with the green and gray in the landscape, and the girls were such troopers traipsing around in their heels and having fun.

Alden and Ethan were so “in the moment” all day. They just kept looking at each other like, “Wow! This isn’t a dream. This is our wedding day!”

Look for this one in Town & Country….

I had no idea where we were going to shoot the wedding party until we got back to the house after the ceremony. The group was so large and we didn’t have much time to mess around. The facade of the Stoner’s house was the perfect stage for these characters!

The pool wasn’t too shabby either!

Yum! Fabulous oyster bar and great food by Palate Pleasers.

Giselle from Elegant Hair by Giselle did an amazing job on Alden’s do!

I am particularly proud of this shot…it’s so theatrical. Very Shakespearean.

The boys club…cigars, scotch and war stories abound with a “full moon” lighting the stage.

The band, Double Down, was amazing! Loved their old time look and collection of instruments.

Bon voyage, Alden and Ethan! Alison braved the crowds, flames and perilous crowded narrow dock for this parting shot. (I paid her the big bucks that day!)

Molly - Wow, Amy. These shots are gorgeous! I love the lush green landscape everywhere.
