Wedding at Oheka Castle in Cold Spring Harbor, New York
Cassandra and Daniel’s story is really cool. They met on Match.com, had their first date at Washington Rock State Park and later Daniel brought Cassandra back to this memorable spot to make his proposal.
The bride and groom got married on October 1, 2011 at the famous Oheka Castle in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. The morning started off with a some drama as Daniel’s tuxedo took its time getting up to his room but after that little bump in the road the day was off and running. The creative session with Chris from Brett Matthew’s Photography was a blast. Cassandra and Daniel were troopers even when we asked them to do some fast dancing right on the lawn!
The day was just getting started though as the supremely talented singing group The Unexpected Boys brought down the house during the ceremony. Then it was on to the reception where in addition to some off the hook dancing we learned that bride’s dad has a list of 10 rules for dating his daughter that he had to be dissuaded from showing Daniel when Cassandra brought him home. Sit back and enjoy Cassandra and Daniel’s Highlight Reel!

Wedding Highlight at Jericho Terrace in New York
Wow this wedding day was filled with a lot of stuff. Starting with the bride, we chatted about how Heather was obsessed with the classic movie “Adventures in Babysitting” and also how she got so excited about wedding planning that she started her own event planning company with one of her bridesmaids. Meanwhile, Joseph explained to us about his passion for football and hockey and we even got to see them play a little before they got ready at the Marriott Hotel in Islandia. Joseph and his groomsmen are also avid Fantasy Football fans as he explains too.
As we arrived at the church, Cindy from Cynthia Ross Affairs was diligently setting up the decor inside. Fast forward and hour later and here comes the bride, along with the cute flower girl and ring bearer holding that very same sign to alert the masses that Heather was about to walk down the aisle.
The ceremony went just as planned but some things did not. Originally we were going to make it to the Children’s Museum in Garden City to shoot some creative shots but as we all know, November is the month that we notice the sun just disappears early. So, we decided to hang at the church a little longer and take advantage of “magic hour” which is when the sun becomes a beautiful amber right before setting.
The reception was awesome and MRG Entertainment made sure of this. It took place at Jericho Terrace in Mineola, New York. This wedding video highlight is the very first one that we used 35mm film stock emulation from CineGrain. CineGrain is a film stock company that offers world class film looks for hollywood and commercial films. Sit back and enjoy this short highlight of Heather and Joseph’s wedding. Soon they will be enjoying their full feature film which will be more like 20-25 mins long telling the complete story of their day.
