Destination Wedding Photographer-Karen and Ryan’s Old Tappan Manor Wedding-Old Tappan, NJ-6/16/17

Even though Karen and Ryan were getting married in Northern New Jersey, they still managed to find me all the way out on the East End of Long Island. Karen got a recommendation from one of my past brides with whom she worked. Lucky me! Karen and Ryan are two extremely kind, funny, easy going and truly animated people. This was clearly seen when my friend Vladimir and I photographed their Old Tappan Manor Wedding Day. The weather didn’t hold out for their outdoor ceremony, but that did not dampen the mood of the day in any way. We got to have a quick but sweet first look outdoors before the sky opened up. As Ryan and Karen walked down the aisle they were surrounded by happy cheering and clapping from all of their family and friends. It was one of the best processionals I have ever witnessed. After the ceremony, they danced the night away with loads of laughter and lots of fun. And how did the evening end, you ask? With tequila shots for all their vendors of course! The party continued back at the hotel bar until closing. It was truly a spectacular day!

Each of them have a slightly different version of how they met but Ryan’s has a little more humor so I’m going to share his. “Fireball. That is how it all started. Fireball at a friends wedding. Ryan a groomsman. Karen a friend of the bride. During the cocktail hour, Karen was shouting at her cousin to meet her at the bar for shots of Fireball. “Fireball! Meghan, Fireball!” she screamed across the room. As heads turn and people look, Ryan jumps in to calm “Krazee” Karen and take a shot for the team. And that was only the beginning…”

A special thank you to my talented friend Vladimir Chaloupka for second shooting with me. Here are some of my favorites to share:
