Karen and Ray met while they were studying at the University at Albany, SUNY. Their love ignited as they soon found out their love for athletic events and movies. Its been a little over 8 years and now they are joined as husband and wife.
Karen and Ray were married at the beautiful Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church in Forest Hills, NY. The weather was perfect despite the forecast of rain and thunderstorm. It rained for all of 2 minutes and within seconds the sun and the clouds were out and more beautiful than ever. After the ceremony we headed to the Old Westbury Gardens where we photographed our bridal party photos. The bridesmaids wore lavender gowns and the men wore black tuxedos with gray ties. Everyone looked absolutely stunning and the flowers were the extra touch to pull everything together. Simple Elegant Floral Decorations, truly out-did themselves with this color combination.
After the bridal party photos, we were off to the wedding venue, The Fox Hollow Inn. While the bride and groom relaxed before their grand entrance, we were able to capture some awesome details of their room. The room was just gorgeous, with the high-ceiling, and open concept. As soon as Karen and Ray made their grand entrance as husband and wife you felt the love. During the best man’s speech (Ray’s brother) the groomsmen decided to dedicate a song to Karen. To Karen and Ray’s surprise it was pretty hilarious. The whole night was full of dancing and laughing and not once person stopped dancing until the last song of the night.
To Ray and Karen, thank you for allowing us to capturing your first day as husband and wife. Everything was breathtaking and we wish you the very best. We hope that you will relive your wedding day every time you look at your photos. <3
A special shout-out to all the vendors. It was a pleasure working with you.
