tower hill botanic garden wedding greg brett photography

Cassie and Bill were married on July 22nd at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, with their ceremony in the Secret Garden and reception in the beautiful Orangerie under the stars.

Bill and Cassie met through mutual friends at a birthday party at Cassie’s alma mater. They started dating by the next week and spent all their time falling deeper in love. On September 3rd, 2016, the two headed up to Legal Harborside to be with their friends. While they were there, Bill took Cassie to a private roof deck to propose to her and then took her out for a night on the town. He took time and care to make sure the night mirrored one of their very first dates. Cassie was completely blown away by the gesture.

Cassie and Bill had their ceremony in the Secret Garden. In keeping with its name, the Secret Garden was tucked away, hidden in the lowest terrace of the Lawn Garden. Like something out of a novel, guests found their way down the double staircase or gently sloping path to arrive in this beautiful garden. Cassie timed the ceremony perfectly, too. Scheduling the ceremony later in the day gave us the most amazing, warm light for formal portraits. Sunset photos are often the best images we capture all day, so the fact that Cassie had planned ahead for formal and wedding party pictures during this time made our job that much easier. We highly recommend planning your wedding to take advantage of the soft, flattering light before sunset. The images from this “golden hour” are simply beautiful.

The bride and groom couldn’t have chosen a better venue for their wedding. Tower Hill Botanic Garden is hidden away; a private gem that does a limited number of exclusive weddings each year. This venue is absolutely one of our favorites with it’s trails, natural stone patios, open plush green fields, and overall natural beauty. Their carefully cultivated gardens provided a backdrop of the most amazing array of blooming flowers. With the sprawling 171 acres of natural beauty, we were never at a loss for something to photograph.

From the first look with Cassie and her father to the couples first dance and parent dances, Cassie and Bill and their friends and family were a joy to work with. We also loved seeing their guests enjoying our open-air photo booth offering. A special thanks to our vendor friends who helped make their day so perfect:

Connors Center Wedding Greg Brett Photography

Hilary and Matthew were married on July 8th, with a ceremony and reception at the Connors Center in Dover, Massachusetts. Hilary and Matt’s love story begins on the other side of the world when the two met while studying abroad in Ghana. Hilary was enchanted by his witty and gentle nature, but at the time wasn’t sure if it was just the African heat getting to her head. When Hilary came home, Matt stayed in Ghana for an exciting internship opportunity. Come the following fall semester at Marist College in Upstate NY, the two were conveniently neighbors. As the summer heat faded and the bright colors of fall covered the Hudson Valley, their friendship continued to blossom and it was clear they were destined for something more. Their first date was going out for Thai food together and they have been together ever since.

We wish you a life filled with adventure and sweet memories. Thank you for welcoming us into your lives and allowing us to document your incredible wedding. Thank you to our vendor friends for helping to make their day so special:

state room wedding greg brett photography

Colin and Stephanie first met in middle school. Their love story winds through the halls of middle and high school where they became friends, learning and growing together through the years. It wasn’t until the summer of 2015 that they started spending more time together, sharing cocktails and laughter. On one such occasion, lamenting the life of the single 30-something, they shared how they both had weddings to attend, but neither had dates. A deal was struck, and by the time the weddings rolled around, it was obvious that the friendship between Colin and Stephanie had blossomed into a beautiful romance. We were so thrilled to provide the wedding photography for their wedding at the State Room in Albany, New York.

Colin and Stephanie had a stunning ceremony and reception at the State Room in downtown Albany. Their day was filled with love and laughter, against the historic backdrop of the State Room. This stunning, famous building has been an Albany icon since 1901. It was a beautiful setting for the continuation of Stephanie and Colin’s journey as they were surrounded by family, friends and joy. We’re so grateful they asked us to document their special day.

Colin & Stephanie, thank you for allowing us to document this most important day. Wishing you joy, love and happiness as you begin your new life together. A special thank you to our vendor friends who helped make their day so special:
