Serendipity Magazine September Issue – feature story on Greenwich, CT gardens!

I’m excited to share a few selections from the ten pages Serendipity recently published of my Greenwich, Connecticut garden tour photos.  Serendipity’s Creative Director, Lisa Meipala Kennedy, and I hiked through the gardens after an early morning rain storm to discover whimsical plantings and amazing architectural notes. Many other garden ‘tourists’ were enjoying the garden inspiration as well. I love it when a shoot is both educational and inspiring for my own life and garden!

Anne & Rob’s Mystic Seaport, Connecticut Wedding

Congratulations to Anne & Rob on their beautiful wedding day. (I am still not sure how they commissioned a full rainbow during the cocktail hour, but it was just the icing on the cake for their gorgeous, heartfelt day with family and friends.)

Trish & Zach’s Anchorage, Alaska Wedding

A large portion of my family on my mother’s side lives in Alaska, and I had the pleasure of shooting my cousin’s son’s wedding in Anchorage this year. This was my husband’s first ever trip to Alaska, so we planned a two week trip, packed our cameras and wetsuits, and headed for the great Northwest!  The highlight was, of course, the wedding and all the time we spent with extended family, but we also found time to make new friends and take an adventure on an amazing surf boat, the M/V MILO out of Homer. I will post photos about that later. For now, here is a portrait of Zach and his new bride Trish, just returning from their ceremony at the historic Captain Cook Hotel in downtown Anchorage.

Surf, sail, sleep!

It is already October! This poor blog is the last thing of all to receive an update in my life. So many fun shoots, awesome sailing afternoons, a few fun girls weekends and surf trips, a bunch of gorgeous weddings, and abundance of adorable kiddos in front of my camera. Not to mention the new site I am on the verge of launching! Thanks for stopping by this poor neglected blog, I think I *might* just get a few photos posted soon!

Here’s one quick snap, taken last week by my friend Philip (on my friend Sarah’s phone!) that sort of sums up a bit of the fun side of this year!  That’s me in the middle, with the red and yellow 8’0, surrounded by some of my super talented triathlete, marathon running, health writing, life coaching, and surf and snowboarding girlfriends!   xoxo

Casey and Ben’s Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club Wedding

The morning of their wedding, Ben surfed with the guys in Montauk and Casey hosted yoga with the ladies. The day started relaxed, had some poignantly emotional moments throughout, & ended with a raucous party!  Congrats Casey and Ben on your perfect day!

Gimlets in the Garden, The Noguchi Museum, June 13

The Noguchi Museum in Queens hosted a member’s night recently, with guided curator-led gallery tours and complimentary gimlets, made with care by Abraham Hawkins, head mixologist at Dutch Kills bar. The moody weather of the night kept many away, but those who ventured out were treated to a quiet museum, a strong and refreshing cocktail, and an overall memorable night.

The East Side Gimlet recipe is as follows (I made this at home with fantastic results!)
1 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
1 pinch of fresh mint
2-3 cucumber slices
2 oz gin
Shake vigorously with ice, strain into a champagne coupe.
