Ulysses Photography is listed in Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book in the NY Hudson Valley area. However, if you take a trip to their website and blog ... you'll see they don't just hang around there! As is the case with most of our LBB photographers, they love to travel and have lots of wonderful examples of their weddings for you to peruse. In this case, a visit to Ulysses and Jenni's blog will take you all the way back to August 2005 weddings! Now that's impressive!! It's SO fascinating to see how much has changed in the wedding world ... and just how much will never change!
Ulysses and Jenni ARE Ulysses Photography. They describe themselves as crazy in love. How great is that? They go on to say that there is no popular catch phrase to describe their style. I like that, too, because I think that all photographic artists have so many many styles, depending upon so many many factors that it would be doing them a grave disservice to assign a style label. Suffice it to say that they are terrific!
Today's featured wedding is from last July and took place at Catlin Gardens NY.
Many of the special touches seen throughout the day were made by Kristina, her mom ... and even her dad!
This pretty cake was from The Pastry Garden.
from Kristina ...
My Mom and I (and my Dad, too!) spent a lot of quality time making many of the small things the guests found at their tables, such as the menu cards, place cards, and the wedding cake cookie favors. The cookies came out great but were A LOT of work. By the end of it, I didn't want to see another cookie for the rest of my life (unfortunately, that didn't last long!) I think we all had a great time working together to come up with creative ideas that would make our guests feel special. I especially loved the air fresheners, with the poem attached, that were left by the valets in our guests' cars. Hopefully, it was a pleasant reminder of the fun they had at the wedding and how much we all appreciate that they were there to share that day with us.
The staff at Catlin Gardens made sure everything ran so smoothly. It was great to know that everything was taken care of so that my family and I could just enjoy ourselves! Sometimes, when I'm really craving something sweet, I think of the wedding cake from The Pastry Garden and regret that I only had one bite of that delicious cake. Brides: enjoy the cake on your wedding day and maybe even have two pieces!
I recommend going to Nicole Miller as a stop on your hunt for the perfect dress. They were so friendly, helpful, and gave me their honest opinions. They also have a great selection of beautiful dresses that are perfect for the beach, garden, or big white wedding of your dreams. My dress was exactly what I wanted. It was so comfortable and not too fussy but made me feel beautiful all night.
We couldn't have asked for better weather or better vendors. We love to show off our wedding album to anyone who stops over at our home, and without fail, people are totally blown away. The pictures are really beautiful!
Congrats to Kristina & Cory ... fantastic wedding!
And a HUGE thank you to Ulysses and Jennie for sharing their fabulous photos with us!!
