Dan & Danielle; July 14, Tarrytown House
The Tarrytown House in Tarrytown, New York has a certain old world charm to it, which makes getting married take you back in time a little bit.
Dan and Danielle, a couple from New York City, decided that's exactly what they were looking for.... Geoff, A Tim Alan Studios videographer, spent the day with the couple starting from when Danielle shed tears while putting on her dress to the end of the evening, when the festive and emotional Mezinka dance honored both mothers.
In between there was a lot of time to take photos and make great use of the lush and expansive grounds. Dan and Danielle saw each other before the early evening ceremony, so that they would have time to take the very important photographs without cutting into their party time later on.
The 'Reveal' or moment when Dan saw Danielle for the first time was truly special, and an emotional one for the couple. They whispered intimate words to each other while basking in the site of one another in their wedding day clothes.
The outdoor ceremony was beautiful- helped by the amazing weather, beautiful landscape of the Tarrytown House and the well-decorated Chuppah that covered the bride and groom. A second camera discretely placed at the end of the aisle captured Dan's face as Danielle approached him as well as a quick kiss from the couple as they exited after their vows.
The expansive lawn of the Tarrytown House made for a great cocktail hour and gave Geoff plenty of opportunity to be creative and get artistic shots of both the landscape and people.
The reception was nonstop fun, starting with the introduction of the couple and first dance (to Al Green's 'Love & Happiness' which is used in the video recap below). A wild Hora, four toasts, more dancing, cutting the cake and the end-of-the-night Mezinka with the mothers made July 14, 2007 a day Dan and Danielle will not soon forget!
