Rainy skies cleared and confetti flew on this fairytale of a wedding day. Alexandra and Jeff’s wedding at the Essex House was just that. With earth tone flowers by Spitz & Peck florist and music by Starlight Orchestras, this wedding was not to be missed. We love being a part of this Princess and Prince’s fairytale ending. Congratulations!
How did Bob propose? Bob had been planning to pop the question for a while but wanted it to be somewhere special. New Hampshire is a place that holds many great memories for the two of us. So on the last trip up for the year, it was perfect. Bob had purchased the ring just a week before and it was burning a hole in his pocket. It was a crisp autumn day in October and the sun was shining. Spending several hours exploring the fair, we tasted jams, saw the tractor pull, went on rides, and ate fried pickles. At one point Sarah was trying on a ring and it got stuck on her finger (her ring finger!!). Sarah thought that she could just buy it and get it off when they got home but as we all know now, Bob wasn’t going to let that happen. After getting it off and putting it back, they made their way to the farm animals where they looked at the cows, bunnies, chickens, and sheep. Ending at the baby goat petting zoo. It had been a long day and they decided to wait on some benches nearby until the rest of her family was done. At that point, Bob got down on one knee. Thinking that he had bought a ring at the fair to play a joke on her, Sarah told him that it’s not at all funny. Bob pulled out the ring and began to profess his love, his need, and his adoration for Sarah. She said YES! A few moments later the skies opened up and rain began to fall. They ran for cover at a nearby school and had some time alone to truly take it all in.

One piece of advice that you could give to other couples: Getting married is about planning your future with another person – be excited about the future, but try to remember to enjoy now and every day together.
Wedding Dress: Mark Ingram Atelier
Groom’s Tux: Dolce and Gabanna
Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: For the groomsmen, we gifted them James Oxford’s from the Frye Company and for the Bridesmaids I gifted a cuff bracelet called The Lacelet, designed by my friend Jared Udell, a shoe designer that used his shoelaces to form an adjustable bracelet with two knots on either end that is then cast in silver.
Something Borrowed and Blue: My borrowed and blue were the same, a vintage handkerchief my mom lent me from her collection.
I wanted to tell you how amazing Felix and Juan were at our wedding. I know you already know how talented they are, but on top of that, I still wanted to let you know how professional, considerate, prompt and nice they were. We only received a few pictures so far, but we were blown away. They are unbelievable and captured the emotion and beauty of the day better than anything else. The people who saw the pictures were also blown away. I received messages from close friends to random people telling me that they are the nicest and best wedding photos they have EVER seen. I am so happy that we chose Fred Marcus. It was the right choice and the best choice.
Sometimes it’s the simplest setting that makes the perfect background and lets a couple’s true love shine . This whimsical engagement shoot captured in Central Park by Brian is something Jaclyn and Trevor will treasure forever. We can’t wait for these two love birds wedding next August!
It is hard to believe that these photographs were taken right outside of New York City. Oheka Castle resembles a European chateau that makes any wedding dream come true. Beautifully captured by Felix, every detail is a reflection of this love-struck couple. Congratulations Chrisanthi and Ben! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
