Adriana & Josh; Bedell Cellars, The North Fork

Adriana and Josh could not have had a more beautiful day at one of the North Fork's best Vineyards, Bedell Cellars. The couple got ready separately in rooms at the Harborfront Inn in Greenport, before a romantic "first look" by the water. Awesome NYC photographer Brian Dorsey joined Tim Alan Smith to photo and video the couple by the water and other spots around Bedell before an incredible ceremony, with the vineyard as the backdrop, commenced.

East End Floral and Event Designer Claire Bean was there to make sure everything looked just right and flowed as it should and the couple enjoyed hours of dancing, toasts and great music with friends and family from far and wide.

Kyoko and Rob; Peconic Bay Winery

Kyoko and Rob were married with Peconic Bay as a backdrop at the Vineyard with that name in a beautiful ceremony in front of friend and family late September. The day started with the couple getting ready at the main house in separate areas so not to see each other before the beautiful bride walked down the aisle.

Kyoko's dog Morris was the center of attention and also the ring bearer, which is not a surprise as Kyoko is one of the top dog groomer's in NYC!

After photos by the water and cocktails the couple danced the night away with friends and family as Tim Alan Smith filmed and amazing photographer Rich Janiello of Ciro Photography took photos! (see above for one of his photos from the day!)

Matthew & Jenny; Rockleigh Country Club; NJ

Jenny & Matthew had beautiful wedding at the Rockleigh Country Club a few weeks ago and Tim Alan Smith NYC wedding videographer was there to document it! When I arrived, photographer Kristine Foley was taking family photos near the main entrance so I joined in to get some footage of the gathering.

The couple soon was signing the Ketubah before walking down the aisle in front of friends and family and exchanging vows and rings.

The cocktail hour at the Rockleigh Country Club was amazing and the guests enjoyed a wide variety of food and drink before heading into the main ballroom for a night of fun that won't soon be forgotten. Because the couple was from NJ, there was a heavy dose of Bruce Springsteen from Play by Play of Faze 4 Orchestras and Entertainment of course, so I continued that theme with the recap below. Enjoy!

Shannon & Vinnie: ReBar, Brooklyn

Shannon started her wedding day at the St. Regis Hotel in midtown where she got ready with her family and bridesmaids surrounding her before taking a shuttle to The Cathedral Basilica of St. James in Brooklyn to wed her waiting groom, Vinnie. Vinnie was quite excited as he waited patiently for his bride, whom he had known and dated over ten years! If there were any doubts, on the way to the church they were vanquished when Shannon's father saw a license plate at a traffic light that said "ShanVin".

After the ceremony, the wedding party took shuttles to DUMBO and the Brooklyn Bridge Park for photos with Karen Hill (her photos posted above!) and video with Tim Alan Smith, where we had the incredible Manhattan skyline as the backdrop. After that, the bride and groom hoofed it the short distance to ReBar, where they spent the night dancing, laughing and enjoying their wedding experience!

Ted & Minhee: The Wainwright House; Rye, NY

There was slightly more than a breeze when Ted and Minhee exchanged vows at the on the banks of the pond at the Wainwright House in Rye this fall. The officiant sped up the proceedings in order to make sure that no one blew away, but that didn't stop the couple from having an amazing day with friends and family. Tim Alan Smith was glad to film the wedding and had fun putting this recap of the day together for the couple to enjoy and share!

Haley's Bat Mitzvah: Martha Clara Vineyard, The North Fork

On a sunny October afternoon, I made the trip to the beautiful North Fork area and spent the day filming Haley's Bat Mitzvah celebration at Martha Clara Vineyards. We film a few Bat Mitzvahs a year and it's always great to capture the kids having such a good time. Haley was no exception as she was all smiles all day and made her grand entrance doing flips and hand springs to the great delight of friends and family.

Working with floral and event designer Claire Bean was also great and she did a masterful job organizing the event and making it look amazing! Photographer Mark K from David Vaughan photography was also fun to work with and we look forward to working with both on more NYC and Hamptons weddings and Bat/Bar Mitzvahs soon!
