Wedding Highlight in September
Jacqueline and Thomas’s got married on September 17, 2011. The day started off in Brooklyn, New York where they both got ready for their big day. I recall, during filming Jacqueline, that she told me about some cool new song that may work for the wedding highlight reel. It happened to be this song and wow was I happy when I heard it. That morning I met Michael Cody too who was the photographer. I had worked with him in the past and hadn’t seen him in probably 2 to 3 years. Him and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Thomas was geting ready not far from here where he started the day by walking his dog.
The ceremony took place at St Rosalia Regina Pacis RC Church in Brooklyn where we’ve been many times before. The anchor point of the day was of course the emotional moment when Jacqueline walked the aisle with her dad towards her soon-to-be-husband Thomas as he stood star-struck watching his angel come walking towards him.
Of course I told the The bride and groom to think of something out of the box for the creative session and they decided to load up the groomsmen with a bunch of shaken champagne bottles to blast open at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Of course the guys didn;t have a problem finishing off what was still left in the bottles. The view overlooking Manhattan was beautiful so we stuck around to get some nice journalistic shots of the bride and groom in their native Brooklyn hometown.
The reception took place at West Mount Country Club in New Jersey and the reception was a non stop party. They finished the night off with a crazy after hours party featuring a 2nd DJ, cigars, and midnite snacks like sliders, onion rings, and more.

Wedding at Oheka Castle in Cold Spring Harbor, New York | Highlight Reel
This couple had a great story! Apparently, Akeem was very picky about the girls he brought home to meet his parents. In fact, Nagaeda was the first girl he ever took home at all! How cool is that?
Fast forward to their wedding day on August 19, 2011 at the elegant and prestigious Oheka Castle in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. The day started off great as Nageada and Akeem exchanged beautiful gifts. We took full advantage of the gorgeous Oheka grounds and had a blast at the photo session. It was awesome working with the legendary Ricky Restiano who is one of the most creative guys in the business.
And let’s not forget the highly emotional ceremony. The maid of honor had tears in her eyes as Nagaeda’s brother walked her down the aisle and the bride herself had to fight not to cry as she recited her vows. It was a touching moment for a great couple. Their full film is coming soon but until then sit back and enjoy Nageada and Akeem’s Highlight Reel!
We were honored to have great filmmakers RJ Weyant plus John Miller from First Day Films and Greg Appison from Elite Studios on the team.
