Classic, Summer, Tappan Hill Mansion, Wedding Photography: Tarrytown, New York

Overlooking the Hudson River at Tappan Hill Mansion, Chris and Emily said “ I do” on a July summer day in Tarrytown NY. Their day was an elegant and fun affair with all white florals and greenery creating a classic timeless event. After an emotional first look and card exchange, Chris and Emily were married in a dual faith ceremony under a beautiful chuppah. Emily wore the perfect floral patterned summer wedding dress and we lucked out with a stunning sunset yet again at Tappan Hill. Affinity NYC kept the dance floor full into the evening.

The Proposal

His Version: We first met at work while working on the same client.  We had only interacted for a few days while working on the client.  We reconnected several years later at a work function. Emily was fun, friendly and outgoing and we immediately hit it off.  The rest is history. For our engagement, I had planned a weekend in Montauk. Emily and I had spent July 4th weekend there and had an amazing time.  Emily is always the one to plan our trips so I had to convince her that our vacation over labor day was going to be planned by her to ensure there were no red flags.  I had planned for our parents to be present during the proposal so they could witness the event. I then had dinner reservations (always Emily's doing) planned at her favorite restaurant after the proposal with all of our family.

Her Version:

We first met at work but didn't start dating until a few years after we first met. Chris proposed to me at the beach in Montauk - our parents were there and we had champagne on the beach and then went out to dinner with the whole family. I really don't like cheesy or corny proposals and I literally could not have thought of a more perfect way for him to propose to me. It was perfect.

Wedding Planning Tip:

Start planning early and over-communicate with everyone involved to avoid any mishaps!
