Wedding days are filled with love ,family, friends and laughter, but it is also one heck of a good time. Amber and Ryan capitalized on focusing on a how to have a great party along side their beautiful wedding! Both of these sweet souls have wonderful visions which blend beautifully together. You just get that vibe when you are hanging with them. Their wedding was a perfect reflection of their attention to detail, style and good taste. Family and friends traveled from all over the US to celebrate Amber and Ryan’s destination wedding to Maine from NYC. The day and night was filled with beautiful flowers, a lovely venue, a hot day followed by a cool summer night, sweet moments from heart felt speeches which included a shout out to the Dr. who delivered her into the world, to really yummy food from Fire and Co. to one of the best wedding bands I have seen. Everyone was dancing till the moon was up. Thank you so much for asking me to capture your wedding day.
Love and Joy

Our favorite moment was seeing each other for the first time during our first look. The morning of the wedding it’s easy to get caught up in making sure everything is running smoothly, but once you see each other for the first time – that all kind of melts away.
We both work in the music industry and we first met at a music venue in New York City (Pianos on the Lower East Side).
Hear each other’s needs and respect them. Never stop exploring each other and the world.
We wouldn’t change much! Maybe make some time to head back into the photo booth once more, but we were too busy dancing! We also missed most dessert and the late night pizza! We wish the music could have gone later – we were not ready to leave!
When Ryan does things, he goes all out. He set up a scavenger hunt for me all around Brooklyn, incorporating all different locations in our neighborhood that had meaning. The final spot lead me to him on one knee. Followed by a surprise engagement party!
Being from Brooklyn, we had a ton of fun traveling to Maine and parts of New England planning the wedding. we love the craft beer and food scene up there, and had a great time exploring during this process and doing what we love to do!
Amber is the visionary and Ryan is super handy and creative, so both of us complimented the requirements to execute the overall concept. From thrifted, reclaimed windows for a seating chart to portable/battery operated signage, it all came together!
We’re going to South Africa in December! 2 weeks traveling to Cape Town, the Winelands, driving the garden route + stopping over in a coastal lagoon town and then ending it on a 3 day safari!
Siobhan and her team made our experience what it was. She is so fun and made us both feel completely at ease. She really got our personalities and helped us easily manage our large bridal parties! We were so sad to say goodbye at the end of the night!
