Nicole and Chris Engagement Session_0005Nicole and Chris Engagement Session_0110
When a couple comes to you from a referral, an awesome referral who also great one. And then, when their engagement session time comes around and they come in style, a matching style to what their wedding day will be…. AAAGGHHHH… Off the hook.happens to shoot for you from time to time, you know that they’re going to be a

Their engagement session went down with this energy that was calm yet “aggressive”. The look of love and determination, heart filled photos with attitude and a style that was just so great!!!! I mean… If you don’t remember that post from a while back, these photos are just a couple… From that moment on, honestly before that, but from that moment on. I knew that this Great Gatsby themed wedding was going to be so exciting!!!!

2017-06-20_0032So…… Their wedding day… One thing, before we even get started like that, just so you get a sense of how excited these two are and how they keep each other guessing, Nicole’s wedding day confession: “I was so curious to hear what chris’ vows were going to be lol this kid always has something up his sleeve – you just never know. I’d say referencing a 15 year old girl inside of him hit the curiosity right on the head. Unforgettable for sure! ” -nicole”

2017-06-20_0022Anyway… The day…….. This day, WAS SO PERFECT!!! The sky was blue, the salty breeze coming off the water, up and over the lawn to their perfect venue. Perched – looking over Long Island Sound is the Branford House. Magnificent for sure and what a great fit for their day. The bridal party was so awesome too! Everyone held back on the consumption of spirits amount and instead enjoyed what the morning and early afternoon held all on it’s own. Speaking of the bridal party, without the maid of honor none of this would have even happened and I would have been sitting on my porch crying that I didn’t have a wedding that day. (that’s a complete lie, I would have probably had another wedding. But still……..)… Anyway, back to Katie the maid of honor. Check it, that’s how they met… “My maid of honor katie invited me out one night and Chris just happened to be there. We talked that night and then when I went to leave Chris said ” but I haven’t had time to court You” no clue who even says that but he had me interested and the rest is history.” 

2017-06-20_0014“I haven’t had time to court you” Chris??? Hey, no one can question it because you two are awesome!

From there, it wasn’t history because Chris still had to ask her to be his person. His forever. His love and support and he hers… And he did. In great style. Again, keeping her on her toes. “Chris planned to take me to a Christmas tree farm which was one of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season and propose to me. My nephew had other plans and decided to be born in Florida at the beginning of December and I flew back bringing with me and ear infection. That wasn’t going to stop Chris from popping the question. He went up to vermont to a friends cabin and stole a christmas tree from the side of the road on the way home to bring to me. He brought the too tall Christmas tree in the house and after leveling it out i got in the shower to get ready to go out with our friends for dinner. While I was in the shower Chris purt the ring on a glass rose and put it in the tree. I got dressed and still had my hair in a towel when I went out to look at the tree. Chris asked me to look at the tree to see if it was leaning at all and to look at it. Me so oblivious because he always told me that he would never propose around the holidays so you can imagine how shocked I was when I found a glass rose with a beautiful diamond on it. I found the rose and turned around to him on one knee in the living room. “

2017-06-20_0017(falling backwards into the tree and knocking it over… But she still said yes)… (the first half of that statement is false. no tree falling happened)….

For the rest of their wedding, it was pretty perfect, Chris’ main goal “keeping Nicole from flipping out” something they wish they could go back and change about their day… “We wish we could make the day longer”

So anyway, from the moment when Nicole said “I love you”, because she said it first at the bottom of a coffee mug (It’s a good thing Chris finished that cup of coffee huh?? . To their wedding day to their plans moving on from this day… To which they say are… “To make a baby”… Has this happened yet? haha The things they would share “with the masses” would be…

Tips to future couples: “Do a first look. It is magical! And don’t make it quick give yourself time. During the wedding EAT! We ate all of it including the cake and loved every minute of it!”

To anything else they want to say to everyone: To say to the masses? We had a blast! Best night of our lives and it wouldn’t have been as awesome without the love we were surrounded with. To You? Thank you thank you thank you. It didn’t seem like we hired a photographer but instead a friend. We can’t wait for Allies wedding, hope to share beer and cheers to the amazing memories.”

Highlands Country Club Wedding NY Wedding Photographers inspirationThere story is like no other. Playing basket ball at the YMCA when Peter threw a ball in one direction and it happened to be the exact spot Jamie was standing. Right to the noggin, she fell to the floor and when she looked up. Peter was standing over her trying not to laugh…. Okay okay… That’s an exaggeration. But it was at the YMCA and it was playing basketball. But as she puts it. “It was a love at first sight kind of moment….”

Highlands Country Club Wedding NY Wedding Photographers inspirationThere day was pretty awesome. The weather was great and as I drove out to that part of New York I was excited to not only shoot the day but to also meet this two. It happens, at times, where I end up not meeting the couple till the day gets here. This was one of those days, I wasn’t worried though because every phone call had us laughing and well, they get my sarcastic side as well. Driving the windy roads, faster than I probably should have, pulling into the hotel and walking in and it was like we had known each other for ever. Make up being done, the nerves building and onto the venue where not only would we get the dress on, but a first look with dad that had everyone in tears, then a first look with Peter, more tears… Then portraits of the two of them… I think the tears were done by then???

All that being done, it was time…… The ceremony: As Jamie recalls “I had to give myself a pep talk before walking down from the room to not puke haha. I think I was nervous because it was finally hitting me that our big day was here and I was about to become a wife” She didn’t puke (which is good since her walking down the aisle was one of Peters favorite moments from the day), as a matter of fact, no one did. That’s a plus! haha. Ceremony was great, the cocktail hour with an awesome selection of eats, drinks and more, and then the reception… Which also brings on a favorite moment for Jamie “Our first dance as husband and wife”…. Highlands Country Club Wedding NY Wedding Photographers inspirationTheir dance with their son climbing up into their arms. Then the party… One thing they said, which I think most couples would agree on is the food. That food that you put time into choosing, you look forward to…. And hits your table first.. Before anyone else’s.. That food. That almost always… You don’t get time to eat. “GETTING A CHANCE TO EAT! To actually enjoy the food! (And to have more cake)”….

Highlands Country Club Wedding NY Wedding Photographers inspirationReally thought, it was a great day, we (my second shooter Melanie and I) rocked out the day with these two and I am pretty sure it all went off without a glitch, hitch or hiccup….

As for the “any tips for future couples” question which I always ask: “Take the time to enjoy the small moments. There was a point in time where Tim stopped us and told us to just hold each other and take a moment to really let the feelings of the day sink in.. to allow us to take a special moment to breathe in our day. Once the day has arrived, there is nothing to stress about, so don’t! No one will know if everything doesn’t go 100% according to plan (and it probably won’t). So just sit back and relax and take in the day for everything it isn’t”

And anything else these two wanted to share??? “Thank you to you, Tim. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. You were professional, and at the same time felt like you were just another loved one attending the wedding. The easy going nature and sense of humor you brought to the day made for so much less stress and so much more happiness. Melanie was also wonderful!!! We wish we could relive it again!”

Really though, thank you guys because you’re the ones that invited TAB Photographic into your day. And because of that, and a few other reasons, YOU’RE AWESOME!!!!!
