Country Club Wedding Photography: Mad About You
Country Club Wedding Photography. This Westchester Country Club• wedding was all about family, tradition and, above all, celebrating those whom this couple loves.
To enumerate: Kathleen’s family lives in Queens where she got ready and slipped into her dreamy head-to-toe-lace gown by Maggie Sottero. Her family’s church is just down the road.
Likewise, the groom’s family traditions had plenty of time to shine. Peter’s family is from Ireland and, equally important, the pastor for the ceremony was from this family’s church in the Bronx.
This affair was 100% about incorporating those whom these two love. And let me tell you, these two love deeply and with purpose. Not just each other, but everyone around them.
Furthermore, you can even read the story of their proposal, which, after all, I shot, here. I hope you enjoy a look at this real New York wedding with a total and complete emphasis on welcoming everyone like their own family. Country Club wedding photography at its finest.
What is a Country Club*
The first Country Club in the United States was The Country Club of Brookline near Boston, Massachusetts. It was called The Country Club because most of the members knew each other from their membership in various city clubs.
It was located in the Country side. Etymological research isn’t more illuminating. The OED has that a country club is “one in or near the country, often with a restricted membership, having facilities for recreation and social intercourse; also, the premises and grounds of such a club.”
Nowadays the term “country” seems superfluous, since there aren’t really many other kinds of clubs any more, but clubs in the cities used to be common in the US and England; the adjective “country” was presumably adopted as a differentiator.
