I photographed two weddings at the Villa in 2008 and had the good fortune of two excellent days.
The first was Katie and Jason, who first said their vows at beautiful St. Joachim’s Church in Beacon, NY, as pictured at left. I’ve seldom seen a more splendid church interior!
After their ceremony and a brief stop at the Beacon waterfront we moved on to Villa Borghese for a beautiful reception. The newly remodeled staircase gave us some oportunities to get some interesting portraits with wrought iron backgrounds. Katie and Jason were great sports as we photographed them in all the great interior spots at the Villa. The food and decor they chose was perfect, and Jeff and Stephanie from The DJ Solution were the finishing touch on a well planned and tasteful wedding. The Villa provided excellent food and service.
Our second wedding at Villa Borghese this year was for Jennifer and Luis, a beautiful couple who simply radiated love and graciousness to all. They were married at the gazebo site, with all the black-eyed-susans in full bloom that were the perfect backdrop for a couple with such sunny personalities. They were gracious enough to follow us out to the gazebo at just the right moment before the sun set to get a wonderful portrait amidst all the flowers in bloom along the aisle. Thanks Jen and Luis!
