Wedding day story New Rochelle N.Y

I have known Amanda for at least 12 years, so when she contacted me for her wedding in New Rochelle this past fall I was very excited and honored to be apart of her day. It is a privilege to get to document a friend’s special day, see old friends and celebrate with them!

It was a beautiful fall day in New York with blue skies and perfect weather for a celebration. The day started with Amanda getting ready at the couples apartment in queens and Jason at his parent’s home where he grew up, later they met for their first look at the gardens of their apartment complex featuring amazing views of the Bridge.

The ceremony took place at the back patio of the magnificent V.I.P Country Club Wedding in New Rochelle, in an intimate ceremony where they exchange vows and decided to pay tribute to Jason’s German heritage with a really cool tradition involving the Nuernberg  cup. The legend says that:

” Centuries ago, in old Nuernberg, the noble misstress Kunigunde fell in love with a young and ambitious goldsmith. Although Kunigunde’s wealthy father ( a powerful nobleman) did not approve of this pair, it was clear that she only wanted the goldsmith to be her husband as she refused many titled and rich suitors who asked for her hand in marriage. Her father became so enraged that he had the young goldsmith thrown into the darkest dungeon.

To her father’s dismay, imprisoning the young man did not end his daughter’s love for him. Instead, he could only watch as his daughter grew paler and paler as a result of the separation from her true love.The wealthy nobleman reluctantly made the following proposal : He told his daughter, “if your goldsmith can make a chalice from which two people can drink at the same time without spilling one single drop, I will free him and you shall become his bride”

Here are some of our favorite moments. Once Again thank you so much to Amanda and Jason for trusting our vision and making us a part of their day! We had a great time celebrating with you this wedding in New Rochelle. wishing you guys a long and healthy life together!
