kristen & joesan // 05/18/18 // tappan hill wedding // tarrytown, ny

Kristen & Joesan's wedding at Tappan Hill Mansion was a dream to photograph - the two of them are so easy to work with & are as sweet as they come. The weather, despite looking less than great all week, ended up perfect. I also really loved the personal, unique details + choices they made: Kristen's high-necked lace dress was actually originally a sweetheart neckline, but they added the high-neck and long sleeves to imitate her mom's wedding dress. She also chose white Converse for her and her girls, while Joesan was rocking the maroon tux. My favorite part of the day, however, were their vows - they both acknowledged how after meeting, they felt like they could finally be themselves with each other, nerdiness and quirks and all. I loved what the officiant told everyone at the ceremony - you can be loved by your partner, and you can be known by your partner, but to be both loved and known is the ultimate gift. I'm so glad Kristen & Joesan found that in each other.
