Emma and Brandon
Once you’ve found the one you want to spend the rest of your life with, the next big decision is probably going to be finding the perfect venue to celebrate! Most couples book their wedding venue before contacting our photography and video team, which is why we are honored to be on the recommended list of vendors for amazing locations like Celebrate at Snug Harbor. The Staten Island location is affordable and they offer several options for couples like Emma and Brandon to choose from for their big day. Easily accessible from the other boroughs, Snug Harbor has indoor and outdoor options for your ceremony and reception and beautiful grounds (including a Chinese Garden) that offer the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos!
Our team started with the bride and bridesmaids in the Bridal Room and captured fun candids of the girls getting ready and helping Emma prepare for her first look with Brandon! Our photographer always recommends doing a reveal shoot before the ceremony to have unrushed time for bride and groom photos before your guests arrive. We love the natural setting and ivy covered buildings at Snug Harbor and as you can see in their photos, there is no shortage of amazing places to take photos at the Staten Island wedding venue.
Their ceremony took place in the white garden and included beautiful personal vows and reflections of when Emma and Brandon met and knew they had found “the one”. Afterwards the newlyweds celebrated with a private first dance and cocktails in the Chinese Scholar Garden.
The weather was perfect for their outdoor reception (the venue provides an indoor backup option as well) and included funny speeches from the groom’s grandpa and heartfelt well wishes from the mother of the bride. Be sure to watch their wedding video trailer to see how beautiful this Staten Island wedding venue is for yourself!
