A Timelapsed Wedding

How interesting to see a wedding come together from start to finish in just 11 minutes! Check out this timelapsed video from the talented Gulshan Kirat and watch as the Marcey Brownstein Catering & Events team & The Foundry staff set up the unique event space and execute a fabulous wedding! From set-up to break-down and everything in between (the ceremony & reception!) it is quite a ride! Ashley & Andrews’ gorgeous wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty, you can check out the photos here.

Jessica & Despina

We love this video of Jessica & Despina’s wedding day from SharaNikoPhoto. We think it really captures the spirit of the day. We had a wonderful time working with Jessica & Despina on the cuisine for their big day and what a day it turned out to be! The wedding took place at the gorgeous The Green Building in Brooklyn and look at the amazing florals from Deryck de Matas Designs. And a special shout out to the wonderful event planner Susan Caissy Caruso of Susan Caissy Caruso Special Events who put it all together! The icing on the cake: This fabulous wedding was just featured in The Knot Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2014 issue, check it our here!

Ladies Who Lunch

I had the pleasure of hosting some great women at my home and farmden in upstate New York recently. The wonderful photographer (and friend of mine) Amber Gress recently covered it on her blog and it was so lovely and I just think it is so gorgeous that I smile every time I look at it.

As I mentioned in one of my last posts, I’m working on my online persona, and how I would like to better blend it with my actual living identity, which is part of why I am posting about more aspects than just weddings, or photography for that matter.   Part of why I chose photography as my path, is because it gives me access.  It gives me access to many worlds, many lives, and  many stories.  I love life, I love people, I love telling stories.  I want to share stories about the places I’ve been, the people I meet, and the magic that ensues.  I am very blessed to know people from all walks, and to  be invited into an array of different worlds.  Some of the things I love are gatherings, cooking, and good conversation with amazing women who are doing amazing things.  This lunch really encompassed so much of that, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a lovely day with some truly lovely and talented people.  The roster ranged from jewelry designer, chef, acupuncturist, event planner, to amazing self made entrepreneur.  I want to thank our lovely hostess Marcey of Marcey Brownstein Catering for bringing us all together, and opening her lovely home to us in upstate NY!  Please check out the links below to see the roster of lovely ladies who attended, and are doing amazing things for a little inspiration!

Party Fowl

We were featured in BizBash‘s Summer 2013 issue. When asked to create alternatives to traditional poultry entrees, our chefs crafted a ballotine of chicken and turkey milanese.


Summer Fare

Our new favorite summer hors d’oeuvres – tuna pave of black pepper-crusted tuna, Persian cucumber, tuna tartare, and microgreens. As beautiful as it is delicious!
