ELIZABETH + KEVIN: PARK SAVOY WEDDING

Elizabeth and Kevin met online last year and their relationship has been nothing short of an amazing whirlwind!  From bonding over their love of How I Met Your Mother to spending winters skiing together, these two have grown into each other in such an enviable way.  They got married this past weekend at the Park Savoy in New Jersey and we were lucky enough to be there to document their big day.

Antonis started the day with Elizabeth and her bridesmaids at Panico Salon in Ridgewood.  Everyone was all smiles the entire day!  Here’s our happy bride!

The staff at Panico is amazing both in terms of warmth and talent.  Check out these hairstyles!

Elizabeth and her supporting cast got dressed at her parents’ house and everyone got the chance to chat and relax before the girls got ready.

Elizabeth told us about these shoes a few weeks before the wedding and she rocked them!  (“Here’s another cool detail worth photographing.  I love the Wizard of Oz…so….”).

Remember we mentioned these two had bonded over How I Met Your Mother?  Little tributes to the show appeared all day.

The ceremony took place at the Church of St. Elizabeth in Wyckoff, NJ.  This was our second wedding here this year and it has quickly become one of our favorite places!

Elizabeth and Kevin chose The Park Savoy for their wedding reception.  The venue was originally an estate, built in the 19th century, and has amazing gardens and grounds.  This was our first time at this venue and we were blown away by everything.  The staff, the food, the decor – all amazing.  We definitely hope we get the chance to shoot a Park Savoy wedding again!

While the guests mingled at the cocktail hour, we stole the bridal party away for some awesome shots on the venue’s grounds.  It’s amazing how close this whole group is and how much fun they all had.

The grand ballroom at the Park Savoy is gorgeous and all the little details Elizabeth and Kevin had chosen were perfect for a fall wedding!

Time to party!  Hank Lane provided the live music and they were nothing short of extraordinary.  The vocalists and instrumentalists were all great and they really played to the crowd and provided an awesome mix of current and classic hits.

Elizabeth and Kevin on the left, Elizabeth’s brother Mike and his new wife Lauren on the right!  Two weddings from the same family in as many months!  It was so nice to see many of the same guests and family members at the two weddings – it provided a level of comfort and creative freedom unlike anything we’d seen.  We were welcomed as warmly as any guests.

Kevin’s mother gave a moving, pride-filled speech thanking family and friends for coming and congratulating Elizabeth and Kevin on their wedding.

Elizabeth and Kevin: We want to wish you nothing but the best in your lives together and want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for how much fun you made our jobs.  You and your families are so kind and we are honored to have shared your big day with you.  Enjoy Fiji and Australia!!

Posting this for my father:
As the Father of the Bride I wanted to thank Antonis, Pak and the entire staff at Stellar Year for an incredible job again. This is our second wedding with Stellar Year as part of the team (Lauren and Michael in August) and they continue to do an excellent job of capturing the moment, the sense and feel of the day and do it in an unobtrusive way. They are organized, efficient and completely behind the scenes. Yet, they still feel as though they are part of the family as they go about their tasks. Thank you again for another “picture perfect” effort.
