NEW TRADITION: Wedding Portrait, Revisited

Posted by

Last weekend, just as I was getting out of taxi, I saw a couple trying to take a photo right in the middle of the street. As I got closer, I realized it was Stacey Sager, an Emmy Award-winning reporter for WABC-TV's "Eyewitness News" in New York City. She and her husband, businessman Andrew Platt, were attempting to recreate their wedding portrait. They were posing in the exact same spot as they had a dozen years ago as just-marrieds. Isn't that a fun and truly inspired idea?

Stacey kindly shared the following story with me:

"We were married at The Harmonie Club on Saturday, Oct 6th, 2001, so this year we celebrated our 12th anniversary. At the time of our wedding, it was just three weeks after 9/11. Everyone was still reeling, but in need of a reason to smile, have fun, and just breathe easy for a night. It was a wonderful evening. At around midnight, Andrew and I went outside to had some photos taken. We kind of got lost in the moment, and forgot they were serving our wedding cake inside! We ended up forgetting to save a piece for the following year, as tradition dictates. But maybe having the memory of taking pictures at that spot on Fifth Avenue and 60th Street is a tradition that's even better."

I asked the couple if I could snap a picture for all of you—they not only agreed, but generously sent me their favorite frame from that midnight photo shoot back in 2001.

  • Help! We are considering hosting my son's wedding at a lovely lake side lodge in Maine. The location and lodge are gorgeous. except the deer heads hanging on the lodge walls bother my son's fiance. She is very much opposed to them staring down at us during the reception. The lodge management will not allow us to remove them for the wedding. We need some creative ideas on how to cover up the stuffed critters and give an elegant edge to a rustic wedding reception. Any suggestions? Thank you so much for your reply.

  • Love the idea of trying to recreate a wedding pose so many years later. Thanks for sharing!
