NYC Engagement Session

Two years ago, Billy asked me to marry him on a beautiful sunny day underneath a tree during our small picnic in Governors Island. I was blown away when he surprised me by ‘re-proposing’ with a beautiful new engagement ring during our engagement shoot.He had been talking to KT, our fabulous photographer, to plan this surprise. How can I not love this guy!

6 years of dating, we still talk like best friends staying up late at night, chatting away about our dreams. Most of all, he makes me feel like the happiest woman alive.

Whimsical Irish Wedding Ideas

“So many places in Ireland whisper of secret stories and historic elegance which inspire to this very day. Legend has it an elegant tiara was sold to finance the 19th century Orangery in Killruddery House, and that the stonework around dome was designed to reflect the lines of the lost family heirloom. Later filled with Italian marble sculpture, the Orangery is a wonderful example of an unexpected beauty not usually associated with Ireland. Using this as the basis for our inspiration, the rich creamy tones of the setting were offset with shades of claret and moody violet hues.”
