The Peach and The Pit

 

In my experience, ‘the peach and the pit’ usually occurred around the dinner table, after a great meal and a full day. Simply….each person is asked to ponder the best and worst part of their day; the sweetest, softest moment and the tougher, harder one.

This is a collection of Peach Photography clients and the sometimes funny but always reflective accounts of the their time with the camera.

 

Danielle & Rob – 10.10.20

Pit: NO PITS!!! I am sure somethings went wrong and I know I let the band play when we should have been eating, but I would go back and do it all over again 1M times again.

Peach:  It’s hard to pinpoint a best part of the day – I was up at 6am so pumped to get ready and get married. The ceremony was emotional, the party was so fun, having everyone embrace the moment was perfect. I think I loved the moment right before Rob & I spoke when I got to look around and see all of the love looking our way.

 

Laura & Brian – 10.18.20

Pit: The last hour of us getting ready in the morning. Everything was calm and went smoothly all morning and then as soon as it was time for everyone to get dressed it’s like all hell broke loose. It left me a little stressed until we got to the ceremony on time- then I relaxed.

Peach: Our first dance. We were so focused on each other as if we were the only two people in the room. We had no idea what was going on around us- in that moment it was just us two.

 

Jenna & Alex – 9.19.20

Pit: coldest night of the year so far!

Peach: Our first look and not leaving the middle of the dance floor.

 

Brittany & Zak – 8.29.20

Pit: The anticipation/anxiety of the impending rain and bad weather (terrible forecast!!!)

Peach: Aside from marrying my best friend, was the perfect afternoon of weather. When we walked out of the church the sun was shining and the boat cruise has amazing weather straight down the Hudson!

 

Megan & Jordan – 10.6.19

Peach: The incredible amount of love we felt from our friends and family.  It was amazingly touching to have the people we love most in the world in one place celebrating our marriage! It was a truly unforgettable day.
Pit: when our driver got lost on the way to taking photos in the park. We thought we were going to miss the sunset but luckily Alicia intervened and saved the day!

 

Stephanie & Fabian – 9.28.19

Pit: Having all the attention on me. Ugh.

Peach: Having everyone we love, friends and family, in the same place having a blast. That was truly amazing.

 

 

Heather & Adam – 9.14.19

Pit: Waking up at 6am to get hair and makeup done. Okay, not really even that was fun!

Peach: Walking out of the church as husband and wife, into the reception as Mr & Mrs.. the dancing.. the party.. I really can’t just choose one.

 

Alissa & John – 6.21.19

Pit: The worst part was when it was over..I swear it felt like I only danced to 3 songs.

Peach: The best part of our wedding day was walking down the aisle…it was like no one else was in the room..and our first dance!

 

Carina & Brian – 6.8.19

Pit: When the band announced my parents’ names multiple times by accident and the entrances were a bit wonky.

Peach: The first look! It got all the jitters out of the way and then we were able to hang out the rest of the afternoon while taking pictures and seeing friends and family. It was great.

 

Sarah & Matt – 5.31.19

Pit: Getting a stain on my dress before even having the first look. There were green napkins in the limo and I used one to wipe champagne off my dress. The dress got a green line across the front.

Peach: Literally the entire day from start to finish, but if I had to pick it would be the first look and also walking down the aisle.

Julia & Carlos – 11.16.18

Pit: The random November snowstorm that hit the night before the wedding. It made us extremely nervous.. and took our VIPs hours instead of minutes to get to our rehearsal dinner the night before.

Peach: The first look was AMAZING. Alicia told us it would be, and it really was. It ended up making our whole day.

 

Colleen & Kyle – 10.26.18

Pit: Trying to decide if the ceremony should be inside or outside… everyone had a different opinion and in the end we decided what we wanted and dreamed of was best. Outside!

Peach: Marrying my best friend of course 🙂

 

Christina & Jeff – 5.12.17

Pit: When the Priest kept calling my husband the wrong name by mistake during the ceremony, repeatedly! Horrified at first. Although honest mixup, Priests get nervous too!! Although not what we envisioned, it brought some comic relief to our ceremony and made it even more unforgettable. A story we’ll be able to tell for a lifetime!

Peach: When we saw each other for the first time at our first look followed by our first few pictures together as Bride & Groom. Best feeling in the world, priceless moments that we will cherish forever.

 

Carina & Brian – 6.8.19

Pit: When the band announced my parents’ names multiple times by accident and the entrances were a bit wonky.

Peach: The first look! It got all the jitters out of the way and then we were able to hang out the rest of the afternoon while taking pictures and seeing friends and family. It was great.

 

Katie & Vinnie – 3.4.17

Pit: the absolutely bitter cold wind gusts that day! Every time the wind calmed down for a few seconds and we thought we’d be able to bear the cold for a picture, the wind would kick up again. Looking back, it made for pretty funny group pictures with everyone’s hair and dresses blowing in different directions…and everyone’s “I’m trying to smile and not look like I’m freezing over” faces! LOL

Peach: SO MANY peaches BUT…walking up behind my soon-to-be hubby and savoring those moments before the first look where I could see him but he couldn’t see me; the special “just us” portraits that captured our smiles, kisses, and giggles; and every single GORGEOUS sunset picture!

 

Anielle & Liam – 9.10.17

Pit: We had a completely outdoor wedding and the timing some how went askew so we ended up cutting the cake in the dark 🙁

Peach: Everything turned out perfectly— Liam sang to me and we cried and it was better than I could’ve expected.
