It was about ten years ago in high school when Ross and Emily first met and it is easy to see why they were drawn to one another. Ross’s jovial personality matched with Emily’s amazing smile was infectious every time we were around them. Their laid back nature on their wedding day made for the most perfect atmosphere. The day began at golden hour at the always stunning Riverdale Manor where the large trees towered over us and the calm stream trickled by. Emily and Ross were such great hosts by greeting their guests with lemonade before the outdoor ceremony and sending them off later that evening with popcorn to munch on as they headed home.
Emily wowed everyone in her long sleeve lace Maggie Sottero gown, but Ross’s first reaction as he stood underneath the wooden arbor adorned with flowing eucalyptus when he saw his bride coming towards him said it all. After the ceremony as guests moved on to hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, we had the pleasure of photographing their dear families and witnessing the different generations come together in support of this sweet, sweet couple. Guests were directed to their assigned tables for dinner with custom wooden coasters and filled up on a pizza bar, salmon, and a carving station. The first dances were had, the cake was cut, and Emily and Ross, as well as their guests (Grandma included!), were ready to get their groove on. Adam, from Mixed-Up Productions, played all of Emily's 90's pop favorites while he handed out glow necklaces.
