Glen Arbor Golf Club Wedding : Anna & Barry

Bedford Hils, NY - September 4, 2018



Anna & Barry were married July 21, 2018 with a wedding ceremony at St Aloysius Church in New Canaan, CT followed by dinner and dancing at Glen Arbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, NY.


This was my first visit to Glen Arbor Golf Club and I found it to be absolutely stunning.  The drive up into the woods feels like you’re entering a secret compound – and ahead you’re greeted with sprawling grounds surrounded by old trees and a beautiful lake.  This combined with the storybook tent made for a joyous evening under the stars complete with a visit from a former president!

Liberty House Wedding : Maxi & Rory

Jersey City, NJ - September 3, 2018



Maxi & Rory were married July 28, 2018 with a ceremony and reception at Liberty House located in Liberty State Park of Jersey City, NJ.


Is there a better way to cap off a summer wedding than with a firepit s’more cookout?  I think not.


Maxi & Rory got ready at the nearby Westin Jersey City before making their way to Liberty State Park for a first look.  The weather kept us on our toes that day with one of those cloudless sky downpours… but thankfully everything calmed down by the time their ceremony was underway.  Which, is a very good thing, considering there are hardly any more spectacular views of Manhattan than that from the back porch of The Liberty House, with its endless views of lower Manhattan.



Wee Burn Country Club Wedding : Christy & Kevin

Darien, CT - August 22, 2018



Christy & Kevin were married July 14, 2018 holding their wedding ceremony at St John Catholic Church and reception at Wee Burn Country Club in Darien, CT.


When you pull in to Wee Burn CC you feel as though you’ve been transported to Santa Barbara, CA with its Spanish Revival facade radiating the afternoon light. Nestled in a beautiful neighborhood, Wee Burn is a gem with gorgeous grounds and a welcoming vibe.  Both Christy & Kevin got ready at the club before heading over to St John Church for a ceremony in the intimate sanctuary.


Once we returned to the club, it was the perfect temperature for an outdoor cocktail hour on the patio which I think is perhaps the greatest part of having a wedding here.  At the end of the day, it’s an exceedingly romantic setting with the string lights and soft evening light.


A special thanks goes out to Laura Boulton Events.  Laura is such a pro and one of my favorite vendors to work with in Connecticut!
