It’s an annual tradition for couples to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day atop the Empire State Building in New York City. The event is sponsored by TheKnot.com which held an online contest late last year selecting the very best love story submissions. In all, 14 couples won the opportunity and one of them was Lindenhurst, New York firefighters Sarah Carpino and George Callahan.

On a lovely summer day, Caitlin and Michael were married at The Woodlands at Woodbury in Woodbury, New York. Prior to the ceremony, they began the day at the Four Points by Sheraton in Plainview, New York where family, friends, and them dressed up for the big day. Before Caitlin put on her beautiful dress, she was given a surprise gift from her mom’s friend who had bought silverware at Caitlin’s grandmother’s estate sale years ago. It was a very emotional moment because the friend had purchased the silverware specifically for Caitlin’s wedding day.

Last fall, Chris Fig Productions had the privilege of filming Deborah and Matthew’s wedding at the West Point Military Academy in West Point, New York. The ceremony took place at the Catholic Chapel, a beautiful Gothic Revival structure that was built in 1900. After the ceremony, Deborah and Matthew and their bridal party took photographs at Trophy Point, the absolute best location for photo taking in West Point. Next, everyone was off to the wedding reception at The Thayer Hotel which offered panoramic views of the Hudson River.
Kimberly and Ian were married on January 15, 2011 at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey. Both the ceremony and reception were held at The Palace where the decor was classy and the food was cooked to perfection.
Shari and Jared were married at the fabulous Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, New York. The magnificent venue is on my short list for Best Food in New York since everything served is absolutely mouth-watering.
Ashley and Ian were married at Holy Name of Jesus in New Rochelle, New York on a beautiful September weekend. Their reception was held a short distance away at VIP Country Club in New Rochelle, New York.
Elvira and David were married at St. Gabriel’s Church in New Rochelle, New York, and their reception was held at Crabtree’s Kittle House in Chappaqua, New York. It was a gorgeous September day, and they could not have asked for better weather.
Jennifer and Efren were married in a Spanish mass at Blessed Sacrament Church in New Rochelle, New York. It was a traditional Catholic Mexican ceremony that involved an exchange of coins to solidify their union. The reception was also in Westchester Country at the Elmwood Country Club in White Plains, New York. It was a wonderful venue and the chef served up authentic Mexican cuisine for the cocktail hour that included seafood ceviche, beef or pork soft tacos, and guacamole with chips. There was a mariachi band that provided the entertainment during dinner and the guests loved every minute of it.
