Scott & Nancy | Catskills, New York

Many people have "discovered" the beauty of the Catskills, small towns and Alpine beauty, a "still-wild" corner of New York. Nancy grew up there, in a town the size of a blink, all forested hills and meadows just down from Hunter Mountain. Several years ago, Nancy’s father asked Scott Mitchell when he and Nancy were going to get married. "When you can get us a dancing bear for the wedding, we’ll set the date," Scott had replied, denying the wondrous and inevitable.

John & Jennifer | Lenox, Massachusetts

John & Jennifer

Hollywood could not have choreographed a more beautiful, dramatic entrance than the one made by Jennifer Hsu in the entryway of the Wheatleigh Hotel. Votive candles lit the outside curve of the marble staircase as Jennifer, flanked by her parents, walked down. Calm, smiling, and resplendent in a cream gown with a lace bodice and green satin sash, Jennifer looked as though there was no other place on earth, or time, than this crystal moment.

Jesse & Abigail | Albany, New York

It would be hard to choose a “most beautiful moment” from Abigail Keeler and Jesse Hord’s wedding and reception Saturday, October 14th. Certainly Abigail outshone everything. The colors, both of the gorgeous Northeast fall evening, and the rich jewel tones of the décor, were stunning. The ceremony was at The Cathedral of All Saints in Albany, where black iron candelabras ringed with lilies and greens lined the aisle. The bridesmaids’ gowns were an emerald green cut, and with gold bangles on their upper arms, their radiance foreshadowed the reception’s Moroccan theme.

Jennifer and Gary | Albany, New York

On “The Apprentice,” Jennifer had to rise to whatever challenges that “the Donald,” dished up, and for over ten years she was a photo editor for Spin Magazine and Rolling Stone. With such competence and savvy, surely she could plan a wedding? Her own? In fact, she could, and she did; remarkably in just over a month. What’s more, she was smart enough to realize that on her actual wedding day (November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving), she did not want to worry the details. This is why she hired Lisa Light to coordinate the ceremony.

Adam and Heather | Sheffied, Massachusetts

Every wedding has a flavor...a sort of essence that carries the day. When Heather and Adam were married August 19th, with two ceremonies, many many friends and family, music, turquoise blue umbrellas, limeade in jars, and the most stunning country barn surrounded by cornfields...the essence was warmth. Yes, it drizzled a bit at one point, but the day could not have been warmer, more beautifully lit from within.
