Jay and Amanda were the first couple I met with in my new office back in June of last year. I instantly thought they were a fantastic couple and was really really hoping they would choose me to be their wedding photographer. Jay and Amanda are not just gorgeous, funny, generous, sweet people, but they are also members of the military. Jay is a Marine and Amanda is an Army Soldier. I have such great respect for what they do to protect our freedom, and I was honored to photograph their special day – my first military wedding!

Amanda waits in the limo in front of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in White Plains.

We then headed off to the Rowsley Estate, (also known as Scarsdale Women’s Club) for the reception.  Jay looked incredibly handsome in his Marine Corps Blue-White Dress uniform, and Amanda was a goddess in her beautiful white wedding gown.

This image just makes my heart melt! 

Amanda and her maid of honor (also Amanda) toast to finally being done with the formals – let’s party! 🙂

The Rowsley Estate is such a beautiful place to hold a wedding reception. The maroon and gold damask wallpaper is so elegant. I love the flowers they chose from Mamaroneck Flowers – the white hydrangea and red/orange roses look perfect.

The couple, lit up by the videographer’s light. They come in handy now and again 😉

This has to be one of my favorite cake feeding pictures of all time – I love how Amanda is taking charge and getting Jay by the neck!

One last one, in the elegant foyer of the Rowsley Estate.

Jay and Amanda – I can’t thank you enough for your generous service to our country. You are both in my prayers, as are your families and your friends. Ro and I had such a wonderful time photographing your wedding. I wish you all the luck and love in the world!

    Oh, man! The composition on the last one is just remarkable. I really love the one that you took of the reception estate as well. You never forget any of the details! I need more adjectives for you, Kelly!
