It has been about a year since my dear friend, Gina and Alex, tied the knot and it seemed like only yesterday. It was a beautiful summer when Danny and I flew back to New York to meet up with all the familiar faces for this wonderful occasion. Gina and Alex picked out a really beautiful venue on the outskirts of New York at Westmount Country Club. The venue was lush with greenery and ample space to run around the place, not to mention the decor of the entire venue was a real gem. To kick start this wonderful wedding day, Gina spent the morning with her caffeine fix and a bunch of bananas her mother gave her to eat. Alex on the other hand, had his own errands to run and last minute preparations with the vendors to make sure everything ran according to plan. After everything was dressed to impress, the entire wedding party caravan our way to Westmount Country Club for their “first look” and some wedding photos before their guests arrived for the ceremony. The photo shoot was quick, fun, and mostly indoors to avoid the summer humidity! With the extra time before the wedding ceremony, Gina and Alex had a little time to mingle with a handful of their guests while they slowly trickled in to greet our happy couple.
The wedding ceremony was short, sweet, and topped off with a couple tears shared amongst the crowd. Once their vows and rings were exchanged, Gina and Alex sealed the deal with a sweet kiss and marched down the aisle as newlyweds with so much spirit and conviction. Gina and Alex spared nothing even down to the cocktail hour. There were plenty of food and drinks to go around to keep the party going while Westmount County Club staff diligently converted their wedding ceremony hall into a lavish reception center. Once everything was set and all their guests found their seats, Gina and Alex had one grand entrance and started off with one dance after another. There were plenty of speeches, hugs, and a whole lot of dancing for the rest of the night! Sit back and enjoy their wedding photography highlights.
