The ceremony on the waterfront enjoyed a view of the river, the boat pier and the Tappan Zee Bridge in the distance. Jeff performed “In My Life” by the Beatles and then “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton on guitar for Emily’s walk down the aisle.
As guests filed out after the ceremony, Jeff played, “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty. On the balcony above Emily and Anthony gazed out at the water while photographer Aaron Almendral snapped a romantic portrait.
THE DETAILS: The hint of autumn without any overpowering notes: the bridesmaids wore wine colored gowns and carried bouquets of majestic red and variegated peach roses that matched the floral arrangements. The cake was decorated with maroon lilies and tendril and thistle-like flowers that added texture and uniqueness.
Emily’s father picked out a surprise song for their dance together. He had changed his mind twice in the weeks before the wedding (very cute!) before finally setting on “Every Breath You Take” by The Police. He and his wife gave each of their daughters a song when they were born and this was Emily’s.
Even with the stunning view and bright sunshine to distract them, the couple’s guests danced the afternoon away. Not any couple can pull off a beautiful, flawless wedding with a packed dance floor during the day, but Anthony and Emily made it look easy.
We loved it, guys! Thank you for having us and enjoy Italy!
