Cara and Mike’s Wedding | Empire City Casino | Yonkers, NY

As we’re rapidly approaching the start of yet another wonderful wedding season, it’s such fun to reflect back on this special occasion, the wedding of our dear friends Cara and Mike (aka “Buck”). For those of you who “don’t” ¬†know Cara and her family (is there anyone out there who doesn’t?), she’s one of five lovely sisters from Bedford, NY, and the second of three that I’ve (so far) had the incredibly special honor to have¬†documented their wedding days. And I will add, each one’s “nailed it” with their choice of grooms. So its with lots of love for this family that I’m now able to share “chapter two”, Cara and Mike’s wedding, starting out with a few choice words from Cara herself.

“Buck and I met in college playing basketball together. He proposed after 3 years of dating during the same movie in which we saw on our first date. Choosing the wedding venue was the easiest part of planning the wedding because my parents and two older sisters had their wedding reception in the same room, so that was a no-brainer. The hardest part was trying to transform the room so that it looked different to the guests who had already attended the other two weddings in the 3 years before. However, we were able to accomplish this by draping the room in black and giving it an entirely different feel. This is a pretty cliche thing to say, but I think the best part of the wedding and what made it so special to us was being able to be in a room with everyone we love at once. That doesn’t happen ever, so being able to gather everyone who is special to us made it the most special day.”

Congratulations to both of you!!!! B
