Hillary & Michael’s Harvard Club Wedding Photos

Harvard Club wedding photos of bride and groom in front of fireplace

I am so pleased to introduce Hillary and Michael, whose lovely wedding I photographed this week.  They started off their nuptials with a small ceremony in their backyard, followed by a much grander reception the next day.  A wedding split over two days equals twice the celebration.  Get all the details and fun Harvard Club wedding photos in this week’s blog post!

Brooklyn Backyard Ceremony

Their separate ceremony was a great way to have a private exchange of vows, but still enable them to celebrate on a grand scale with friends and family.

Hillary’s sister served as officiant, and there was a wonderful candle lighting ceremony that included every guest.  Bubbles and champagne followed (plus a little apple cider for the flower girl).
