Harkness Memorial Park Wedding by Sarah Tew Photography

Today’s wedding is a true testament to the power of love family and friends. Beautifully captured by Sarah Tew, who as a photographer is thrilled about the location, this wedding is one that will leave you with a sweet smile on your face. The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6541From the photographer: My thoughts on this wedding can be summed up in one word: WOW! It’s rare that photographers get so much punch packed into one location– this park was gorgeous– it featured a mansion for the getting ready, cocktail and reception, and a sweet little amphitheatre for the ceremony. The options for portraits were almost overwhelming! To make things even better Jesse & Jessica had a super sweet wedding that involved almost no “outside” vendors– in other words, everyone involved with their wedding (except the venue/caterer) was someone they knew personally!

Jesse’s brother Kerk, played the music for their ceremony, and their DJ, Christopher Torres, was a friend. The cake was made by the bride’s Grandfather, and the invitations were designed by Jessica’s sister (and maid of honor), Laura. Even I was an old friend of Jesse’s from Wesleyan. To top it all off, Jesse arranged to serenade his bride during the reception with an Al Green cover with his brothers performing as his backup band. So you can imagine with this DIY spirit what a warm-feeling celebration it was. For centerpieces, they just put a white orchid plant with pretty little handmade paper covers over the pots (lacy looking, awesome idea) on each table surrounded by some little sand dollars and glass pebbles. Very simple but lovely, and the guests enjoyed taking an orchid home!The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6538 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6539 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6542 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6543 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6544 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6545 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6548 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6550 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6551 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6554 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6556 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6558 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6559 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6561 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6562 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6565 The Westchester Wedding Planner,_6568
