Guys! I’m so excited to post this. Christina and Pial are two of my most favorite people. Their wedding was gorgeous and Mary and I had a blast shooting it.
The day started off at The Juliand House in Greene. Fun fact! I grew up in Greene, NY and we learned about the history of the Juliand House when I was in primary school. We were told that there was an old door kept in the cellar that contained the markings of a tomahawk because this house had been a part of a Native American attack in the 1800’s. Can you guess what the first question I asked was when I initially showed up? Unfortunately the current owners knew of the door but said the door wasn’t in the house when they purchased it. (ALL MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS RUINED!) But they were gracious and wonderful hosts and took me on a tour while I waited for Christina and her bridesmaids to return from the salon. This place is absolutely GORGEOUS and such a pretty place to take pictures. While Christina and her bridesmaids were getting ready at The Juliand House, Pial and his groomsmen were at an airbnb nearby.These pictures are some of my absolute favorites. My assistant Mary is the boss when it comes to lighting. The middle picture should, without a doubt, be hanging up in each one of these gentleman’s homes to commemorate the day.
Christina and Pial chose to do a first look which took place at the Juliand House.
I am IN LOVE with this bouquet which was created by Gennarellis Flower Shop in Binghamton, NY.
The ceremony and reception took place at Gabriella’s Manor which is also right in Greene. I have to give a huge shout out to the staff at Gabriella’s because they did an awesome job!
During one part of the ceremony Christina and Pial went around and greeted all their guests which I’ve never seen before but loved. Pial really gave it his all during this part and we spent some time waiting for him to arrive back at his place beside his bride. When he did arrive, everyone applauded. I love moments like this that really make a ceremony unique. First kiss as husband and wife!
The reception boasted delicious food and the fanciest venetian hour I have ever seen. The venetian hour at Gabriellas is custom designed by the owners and their baker and is completely unique. The display was amazing and the desserts were even more so. DJ Andrew King also kept the dance floor hopping and super fun.
When the flower girl crashes the father daughter dance. Too cute!Venetian hour!! Now I’m hungry. This display was SO cool!I’m pretty sure this picture should be the cover for a techno band CD. Are CD’s even a thing anymore? If you’re reading this and you have no idea what a CD is, you really missed out on being a 90’s kid.Christina and Pial’s wedding was the best and I’m so glad we could be a part of it. I want to give a huge shout out to my girl for Mary for being my assistant on this day and taking some awesome shots. And to all of these vendors for helping to make the day so memorable for Christina and Pial. ALSO! A huge thank you to the owners of the Juliand House for fulfilling my childhood curiousity of seeing the inside of the house. You can check out their website here…the1810juliandhouse.com.
