”Making Love Shine“ ~ Chantal and Patrick
Weddings are always a such a special celebration. I was thrilled to be able to join Chantal and Patrick for their wonderful day of love at Jericho Terrace in Long Island, NY – USA. Beginning the day by getting ready in their separate rooms, it was interesting to have to go from one to the other to capture their “getting ready” moments. But it was even more amazing to see them transform into the incredible bride and groom! Donning their beautiful attire for the day, Chantal’s dress was breathtaking and Patrick’s suit was equally stunning. I was sure that they would both be mesmerized by each other!
Taking a few minutes to collect themselves and visit with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, it was soon time to make their way to the ceremony. Patrick anxiously stood at the beautifully decorated arched altar, waiting for his beautiful bride to join him. Walking up the aisle with her dress flowing behind her, their eyes locked on each other and never left. Exchanging their vows and expressing their deep love for each other, everyone was near tears by the end of it. Sealing it all with a passionate kiss, these two were finally man and wife! Everyone was so excited and the look of sheer joy was evident on both of their faces. It was a moment they would never forget as they continued on in their wonderful lives together.
After some quick pictures, we all headed to the reception. Their reception hall was set up with elegancy and on display was their delicious cake. Having a touching first dance and followed with choreographed dance that stunned all the guests, it truly moved everyone. The happiness from them spread like a wave over us all and you could tell that this was the best moment in their lives. It was great to see them having fun! Continuing through the night with many laughs and moments of affection, Chantal and Patrick were truly lucky to have each other! What a wonderful wedding!
