Michelle + Rob: Paramount Country Club Wedding

This wedding was always going to be incredible.  Michelle and Rob are absolutely amazing together and their willingness to put all of their trust into our creative process made working with them so incredibly easy from the first day.  Michelle was the Maid of Honor for Kristin and Vinny’s wedding last year and she and Rob booked us just a few weeks afterwards.  We did Michelle and Rob’s engagement shoot last summer and Michelle was totally down for any crazy idea we had (including climbing a tree)!  This couple is a joy to work with and their wedding last weekend at the beautiful Paramount Country Club in New York was nothing short of spectacular.

Let’s get right to the images – we can’t wait to share these!  Keep scrolling to the bottom for a fun photo/video fusion slideshow we put together for the newlyweds!

Antonis went to Paramount for Michelle’s bride prep and got an early look at the amazing location.  Here’s our gorgeous bride, Michelle!

The prep suite was full of little knick-knacks and mementos – we love when brides personalize their day like this!

The dress went on and Michelle was nothing short of stunning.

The ceremony took place at St. Magaret’s Church in Pearl River, NY and was officiated by Monseigneur O’Keefe who gave a beautiful homily.

Michelle and Rob had bubbles for their big exit rather than the traditional rice and it was awesome!

After the ceremony we zipped back to Paramount for some formal shots before the cocktail hour.  With family shots all done, we got the couple (and their bridal) party to ourselves for a little while.  Pak went for his signature “flying veil” shot (Michelle having the longest veil we’ve ever seen certainly helped)!

Here’s the couple with their awesome, fun bridal party!

Paramount Country Club has one of the best photo spots we’ve ever seen.  Doug, the manager, took us out to the 6th green just after sunset and we spent almost 40 minutes with Michelle and Rob.

As it got darker, the artificial light had to come out – just look at the results!  This is our favorite image from the whole day.

Erica was helping us out for this event and she was in the reception hall taking images before the guests arrived and the party began.

Michelle and Rob each had a signature drink at the wedding.  Michelle went for a fruity cocktail while Rob chose a spiked sweet tea.

Michelle and Rob got the party started with their first dance.  The reception was MC’ed by A Perfect Blend Entertainment and they did an absolutely incredible job making sure everyone had a blast and playing great music all night!

Here is the happy couple with Kristin and Vinny, our bride and groom from April 2013.  We love having our former couples celebrating with our new ones!
