Tamara + Anthony | Woodbury, NY

April Fool’s Day is one of the most lighthearted and fun days of the year, so what better day for two people silly-in-love to tie the knot, and have a little fun at the same time!?

Tamara + Anthony met through a friend they both shared at different times in their lives, and the rest is history! Even though Tamara was totally caught off guard by Anthony’s proposal, it’s no surprise that these two found each other. Their super playful and sweet demeanor was the best indication that fate brought these two together, and I am so happy they did!

Tamara was honestly the most gorgeous bride. Her chic and sophisticated style was something most women dream of, and I couldn’t believe how amazing all of her details were. As she got ready in her hotel room, I found a photographer’s gold mine – a beautiful window with light pouring through the glass. Tamara sat on the bed and with the help of that natural light, we got some dreamy and ethereal portraits of her – that are now some of my favorite! Tamara seriously carried herself with such elegance, and I think I can speak for everyone present that she was an absolute vision in her fitted wedding gown.

Even though it rained on and off throughout the day, it didn’t phase Tamara + Anthony at all, which I was so happy about! During their first look, I could see how wowed Anthony was when he saw Tamara for the first time, and it was so incredible to witness how much these sweethearts truly love each other. After the reveal, we were able to utilize my trusty clear umbrella {which is now a staple on any wedding I’m lucky enough to photograph!} and capture the two of them in an intimate, outdoor setting.

The ceremony in the Winter Garden Ballroom at Fox Hollow could not have been more perfect, with tons of romantic details and stunning floral arrangements scattered throughout the space. The soft light streamed in through the window panes gorgeously, illuminating all the people that had come to witness this beautiful union. Tamara’s family flew in from Trinidad, and it was absolutely amazing to see everyone together for such a special day. As a photographer, I love seeing all of your family and friends together! It really adds to the outpouring of love that exists between two people in love, and makes for some seriously incredible candid shots during the ceremony.

Don’t even get me started on the reception! Everyone had a blast dancing and joking with each other {it was April Fool’s, after all!}, and in each photograph I snapped, every guest had a huge grin on their face. It’s clear that Tamara + Anthony bring out the absolute best in everyone, and I am so honored I was able to be a small part of that.

So, here it is! Enjoy the beautiful wedding day of Tamara + Anthony!
