Morgan & Jon's Wedding at The Stone House at Clove Lakes in Staten Island, New York

Morgan & Jon married on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Stone House at Clove Lakes in Staten Island, New York. Morgan got ready at her childhood home with the help of her mom and her maid of honor, Kiera. Morgan wore Kiera’s wedding dress, which fit her perfectly. She looked gorgeous and the fact that it was her best friend’s wedding dress only made it more special. I love when people get ready at their childhood homes because I get to see all sorts of amazing family details - like a portrait from her parent’s wedding or a small toy dog that is clearly a nod at the family dog, who stood guard as Morgan got ready.

“We wanted to get married somewhere familiar and easy to access for our guests, so Staten Island ended up being important. The setting is gorgeous in the park and I felt like I could trust the staff at The Stone House to make sure the day turned out well.” - Morgan

“One of my favorite moments was looking around and seeing so many important people from various parts of our lives, savoring the fact that the weather turned out in our favor, and having some quiet moments enjoying how good we looked!” - Morgan

Everyone had a blast at this wedding! I love photographing Jewish traditions like the Horah dance to Hava Nagila - it is a guarantee for fun and frivolity.
