Kristine and Warren

Wow, what a weekend. I hope you have a comfortable seat because this can be a long one. Were do I start? Well how about I start in the middle, because the focus of this post is the wedding of Kristine and Warren. I want to first thank Kristine and Warren for giving me the honor of sharing their wedding day with them and being more than just clients. My friend James Ravenell helped me out on this day, but the cost was high, I'll explain later.

Beautiful Rhinebeck New York was the setting for beginning of this couple's day. While Kristine enjoyed her beautification session at FACE STOCKHOLM in the middle of Rhinebeck, Warren anxiously waited for his bride at St. James Church in Chatham. He didn't have to wait that long (time is in the eye of the beholder, or is that beauty), as Kristine ran back to her room at the Beekman Arms Inn and got dressed in record time. Now when I say record time, I'm talking NY Fashion week, models in the back quick change speed, I'm talking Warp speed for Trekkie's, Light speed for Jedi Knights, Hyper Drives for Stargate SG1, and FTL Jump Drives for Battlestar Galactica Fans). And if you still don't get it, she changed really, really fast.

We climbed in to a mini bus that must have been upgraded by a NASCAR racing team, equipped with Nitrox, and driven by Jeff Gordon himself. We safely arrived at St. James, a really beautiful church, where Kristine and Warren proceeded to have great ceremony that was performed by REV. Gary Paul Gelfenbien, Pastor. He really did a great job, as his words brought smiles to every ones face, including mine where on a personal level, they were truly needed.

After the ceremony it was back to the Beekman Arms Inn for the reception celebration. Beekman Arms Inn also happens to be America's oldest Inn. Any place that can handle the number of kids that attended this weeding is ok in my book.

Kristine and Warren also happen to be good friends of my good friend and fellow photographer Jason Groupp and his wife Liz. So when I saw him walk into the Beekman I was truly more than happy to have him join James and I outside with the Bride and Groom for some night shooting. Rhinebeck is a great place to capture images during the day, and even better at night. Afterwards the party continued back in the Beekman. It was a Great Day!

Kristine, Warren, James, and Jason, I can't thank you enough for the day.
Thank You Guys!!

Of course there's a slide show.

Check out some of Jason's images from that night outside. And if you're upto the task check
out his workshop "The Revolution" I did, and it was awesome!!
