Sun shine, love and landscapes… a picture perfect May wedding! When discussing where to take family and bridal party pictures with the Bride and Groom, my heart instantly knew that Tarrywile Park in Danbury, CT would be the perfect place to take them. We started the day at the families home in Ridgefield, CT and headed down to St. Peter’s in Danbury for a beautiful wedding mass. Tarrywile was our next stop on the list. The background was just brilliant and we couldn’t have been blessed with a better day. For the reception we headed to the Salem Golf Club in North Salem, NY. The outdoor patio overlooking the green was filled with gorgeous natural light and it was a rare treat to see the bride and groom enjoy cocktail hour with all of their guests. Onto the first dance, toasts and a packed dance floor all night long, this couple knew how to throw a party! Congratulations Trina and Mike! It was a privilege to be part of such a special day!
**To a Lifetime of Love and Happiness!** Cheers

Growing up in the beauty industry Christine always had a natural desire to pursue her passion for creating beautiful hair & faces. She started her career in NYC where she studied at the prestigious makeup academy IL Makiage. She then made a smooth transition into owning and operating a top end salon in NY providing hair design and advanced color to high end clients. Her love life and career then took her to Houston TX where she worked in the Rice University area at an upscale salon with a select group of top hair and makeup artists. Here is where her career really skyrocketed and her talent and true artistry and passion for what she loves shone through the TX light. After many years of working in Houston, Christine decided to travel back home to her roots and became a bride herself. She truly began to understand the importance of looking and feeling beautiful on your wedding day and wanted to share her talents with real brides everywhere. So began the launch of Beauty by Christine where she currently provides top hair and makeup artistry to brides, moms, professionals, high school seniors and woman everywhere who are craving to look their best.

I was thrilled to be one of the first phone calls announcing this couples engagement, even more thrilled when the following words were… your going to be my photographer right?? As if there was any way I would miss being apart of this special event ! The reception was held at the beautifl Centennial Golf Club in Carmel, NY. Great location for a reception, wall to wall windows, great staff and amazing catering!
The best part of the wedding for me was that the Bride was what the bride did for her wedding favors. There was a small note card set at each seat with a note that read: To our Family and Friends, As we begin our life together, we look for ways to share our compassion with those we love most. In lieu of a traditional wedding favor, we have made a donation in your honor to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This way, our gift will not only show how much we care about you, but will also share our love with the children who are battling cancer at St. Jude.
How amazing are they! This couple always puts the needs and wants of others in front of their own. They are a true inspiration for anyone who is looking for a creative way to give back.
If you would like to assist in the fight against cancer and would like to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Please to do by following the link here. Donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital No donation is too big or too small to help end the battle of cancer.
I just love all the energy in this picture! Makes me smile everytime I see it!
