A venue must be pretty incredible if a couple’s wedding is still amazing, even in the rain. Obviously, the couple must be pretty impressive, too. Alex and Anya had a stunning Saphire Estate wedding, on a drizzly Saturday in June. They sent out beautiful, gold-detailed Zazzle invitations to their guests.
Finally the day arrived and we began the day at a nearby hotel where Anya and Alex got ready for the day, separately. Eliza and Steph from Lyndsay Simon Beauty did a beautiful job with hair and makeup for the ladies. Anya’s bridesmaids, in their matching tracksuits, gave the bride a gift to open.
Alex got dressed into his sharp, navy detailed jacket by Ben Sherman and his pants from Indochino. His groomsmen, dressed in suits from The Black Tux, raised a glass to the groom. And then it was off to the wedding venue. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photographs from Anya and Alex’s Saphire Estate wedding.
This bride tribe was so amazing! They were overjoyed for this sweet bride! Obviously they lost their minds when they shared a first look with her and saw her in her wedding gown!
Next Anya shared a first look with her father, before heading to her first look with her groom.
After signing their Ketubah, it was time to get these two married!
Introducing Mr and Mrs Frieband! Mazel tov!
Time for a quick outfit change! Anya chose a fun but elegant gown by Lillian West (from Alexandra’s Bridal Boutique) for her second gown of the evening! Then it was time to cut into this gorgeous Gerardo’s Italian Bakery wedding cake! After that, the dance floor finally opened! And they definitely danced The Horah! Anya also threw the bouquet. That may have gotten a little out of hand. LOL.
I am requesting that all couples, going forward, have a cannoli bar at their reception. Please! This sweet couple brought cannolis to their engagement session…for me! My couples spoil me rotten! So, I love that they included this incredible cannoli bar (also by Gerardo’s Italian Bakery) at their wedding. I definitely packed a to-go box to take hime!
And to finish the evening off right…night portraits!
