The Grandview, Multicultural Wedding: Jerryanne + Nathan

So excited to be featured on & bellanaija.comA couple of months ago, I had the honor to shoot with friend and fellow photographer,  Petronella. She's an amazing photographer and a great friend. I was thrilled when we were able to shoot together at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY. I had an absolute blast! Her bride & groom, Jerryanne & Nathan were amazing to work with and planned an absolutely gorgeous wedding full of Afro-Caribbean culture and beautiful colors.

Here are some of the images I captured of the day.
