S + A Long Island New York Wedding, Westbury Manor Teasers!


I had such a pleasure being the photographer for  Sabrina and Drew's New York wedding at the Westbury Manor in Long Island! The venue had great food, and beautiful settings for photos indoor and outdoor. The garden had peacocks that were happy to have their pictures taken (I think they expected it and took offense if you didn't!), a bridge over a little river, seating area and more. A perfect place for a perfect wedding. Sabrina and Drew are not just your regular or ordinary couple. They're creative, no-nonsense bride and groom who likes to get things done. Their wedding was very touching and approximately 300 guests attended the big day to witness their matrimony. The wedding was simple, but not traditional and that's how the bride and groom wanted it. Guests arrived in droves and with so many happy faces, it was truly fun to photograph their reaction and their little moments during the wedding. One thing with being the photographer, you get to meet so many people and during weddings everyone is happy and enjoying themselves. It's always good to be surrounded with happy people! The surroundings were even more complimented by the details. I LOVE the details they had at the wedding. Wall-E and Eva as the cake topper is such a cute idea!!!! The ode to the Beatles during the ceremony was definitely a hit and very memorable. It depicted their relationship and allowed guests to really see  their history. I LOVED Sabrina's shoes and you can ask her how she came by them. Enjoy the teasers and can't wait to finish everything up!!!!

As if he's telling you that he's pretty and you better appreciate his feathers and get his good side...

Cell phones were not the only smart devices recording the wedding (in addition to The Godfather Films videography), iPads were there too and guests were happy to use them to videotape all the good details.

You already know I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! It's so perfect!

9/11...We Remember - New York State of Mind - by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

9/11....We Remember. This past weekend was a whirlwind of memorials and dedications. One commercial created by State Farm "Empire State of Mind" ( really pulled some strings...not just because the commercial was made well, but because the Firehouse showcased in the commercial was the same Engine 205 Ladder 118 I visited earlier this year. Let me just say that these firemen were all very down to earth individuals who all had stories to say about that fateful day. Walking into the station, you can almost feel the presence of those that walked through the same hallways checking equipment, sliding down the pole when the alarm rings, or putting on over a hundred pound worth of gear...that's correct...A Fireperson has over a hundred pounds worth of gear at some point, not including carrying a person (if need be) through a roaring fire in a burning building. These men literally will put their lives on the line and talking to them and sharing their stories is just mind blowing. One cannot grasp what they do until you see how they live in a station first-hand. Here's a few photos from the station. They are by the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO and you can never miss their firehouse with their famous mural on their door. They are also a fun bunch since while one of them, Danny, was demonstrating his equipment in front of the truck, one of the lieutenants climbed on top of the truck with a bucket of water and poured it all on the uknowing fireman...and I was next to him! Good thing I looked up on time...I don't think my camera would have survived :-).
