Tappan Hill Mansion Wedding: Sara & Ron

She stood wrapped in love and the forty years of tradition sewn into every thread of her mama’s veil. She took a deep breath and then another. And then she cried. Everywhere she faced, the light did follow. Every angle she turned did reveal, she is one who is bathed in beauty. She paused in the moment. Lingered in the threshold just a little while longer. Because she knew that just one day would never be big enough to hold everything that she was feeling.

He stood rapt in attention at the altar and watched the fabric of their two families overlap, sewn together like the thread in the ribbons above him. He took a deep breath and then another. He squeezed her two hands in his. And then she cried. Everywhere she faced, his smile did follow. Every word he spoke did reveal, to him she would always be one who is bathed in beauty. And to her he promised nothing short of a lifetime, because he already knew….

Just one day would never be big enough to hold everything that he was feeling.

Married: Sara & Ron

Sara & Ron were married on an absolutely gorgeous day at the absolutely GORGEOUS Tappan Hill Mansion. Theirs is a love too big for just one ceremony….so they had two! Which just made for double the laughter, the love and the tears. Ron is actually a correspondent for CNBC, so it came as no news to him (ooooh see what I did there!) that Sara just got more and more beautiful as the day went on….all the way down to the very last songs of the evening. Sara & Ron, it was truly our honor to be there with you on a day filled to the brim with everything that it should be. My hope is that you will love like this always: with more love & laughter than could ever possibly fit in the space of just one day. So instead, it takes a whole lifetime.

So much love,

  1. Stephanie Stewart

    Soooo beautiful! What a truly gorgeous wedding!

  2. Sarah Goodwin

    GAHHHH!!! This is so fabulous – looks like it stepped out of the pages of Vanity Fair.

    You know, often when I find myself looking at other photographers’ blog, I exclaim over the fun details or the beauty of the bride’s dress. However, every time you all post a wedding, I find myself equally distracted by the beauty of the subjects AND the stunning way in which you composed and captured each frame. Y’all seem to make every click of the shutter into a portfolio-worthy show stopper.

  4. Laura
