Whitby Castle: Basha and Marcin's polish celebration

Basha and Marcin got married on October 28th, 2018 in Rye, NY. I met Marcin, when I injured my shoulder in 2015. He worked at the physical therapy place I was sent to. When he asked me about my photography business and that he proposed to his girlfriend I was thrilled being considered to photograph their wedding. After meeting Basha, I knew we were a perfect fit and photographing their wedding will be amazing. We are all Europeans and we share the same humor and view on life. To describe these two… To call Marcin a goofball, is an understatement. He is such a happy human being and he spreads it around and you can’t help it but laugh. Basha’s biggest trade I think is the endless patience she has to have to let him be. These two are an inspiration to me. They figured it out.

Basha and the girls got ready at her parents house. These girls know how to celebrate. I had the best time capturing those moments for them and being a part of this special day.

When Marcin arrived at her house for the polish blessing from the parents before heading to church, everybody was just simply overjoyed with love and excitement. It was quite a different ceremony and I was able to experience similarities, but also differences in religion. This is one of the parts I love most about my job. Different cultures, different ceremonies, always new experiences.

After church we headed to Whitby Castle in Rye. This one of a kind Golf Course location was the perfect setting for portraits and bridal party photos.

Basha and Marcin practiced a ton for their first dance and surprised us all with a choreographed piece, which was amazing! I don’t really have to tell you how well Europeans can party so I leave it up to your imagination.. or check out the photos! The rest of the night was a mix of dancing and singing and I truly loved to capture this day for them. I wish we could do it all over again.
