Last September, I photographed Lindsey and Richie’s Paramount Country Club wedding (their engagement session is here!). The Paramount Country Club is located in New City, New York and is filled with the history and aura of an early 1900s estate. Once the private home to the president of Paramount Pictures, this estate has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur. This gorgeous venue is definitely one of my favorites!
I started the day with Lindsey in one of the cottages on the grounds of the country club. The day was rainy, but that didn’t let our gorgeous bride affect her one bit. I loved many of Lindsey’s details using them in my photos while she was having her hair and makeup done. I loved all the gold she used in her invites, jewelry and shoes!
While I finished with the ladies, Matthew was with Richie and the guys inside the country club. Richie, a musician, had guitar cuff links and looked incredibly dapper in his classic tux.
Once time for the first look, the rain had not given away. It was cold for a September day, but Lindsey and Richie fought through it and looked so happy and adorable with the clear umbrellas we provided them with for coverage. Their smiles were nonstop and I love these images we captured of the two of them!
Once we completed bridal party and family photos, it was time for their sweet ceremony. Lindsey and Richie did an excellent job personalizing their details throughout the day and their ceremony was no different. Richie’s uncle officiated and was quite hilarious in doing so. I loved the adorable things he incorporated in his words!
Once the reception began, their family friend built band never stopped the excitement but were able to pause briefly for sweet and funny speeches and adorable parent dances. One of my favorite parts of the evening was when Richie’s sister and bridesmaid (yes this family is musically talented!) jumped on the microphone and sang a few songs. But the best part was when she sang her parents wedding song with Richie on guitar and they danced alone on the dance floor. Such a sweet moment!
