From Mikkel Paige Photography: “The sweetest weddings happen at this Chappaqua venue, just about 45 minutes outside of NYC. And of course Elise and Colin’s day was one of the memorable marriages here. I like to think their Crabtree’s Kittle House wedding photos do their beautiful, sweet day justice! They met many years ago in high school and have grown together into adulthood, persevering many years together through college and continued education. They both chose to go into medical professions, Colin as a nurse and Elise in acupuncture. They share a love of caring for and healing people which I’m sure is helpful when they need to talk about their work over dinner! Their upbringings pre-high school may have been slightly different. Elise was born in China and moved to the United States at a young age and Colin was born in the United States but has an Irish background. Yet they harmoniously honored their cultures in beautiful ways for their wedding day.
They are admittedly “shy” in front of the camera (I’ve heard that a few times before!) but luckily the camera melted away and let their love shines in every way. There were so many great memories from their Saturday celebration, from watching Elise and her mom put together the card box for the reception before she put her dress on, to Colin’s reaction as he turned around during their first look to see his bride, to Elise’s mother’s amazing speech providing some wonderful inspiration and insight into Elise’s childhood and their relationship. Here’s the story of their day in photos (with some narration to provide context)!”
