Vanessa and Avi’s love affair is the quintessential high school romance that culminated in their beautiful wedding in Bedford Hills, NY.
Their story begins at the Choate Rosemary Hall, a prestigious private boarding school in Connecticut where Vanessa and Avi were students. Post high school, Avi decided that he wanted to explore more of the world and moved to London for college. The mutual feelings of affections remained and the ocean between them didn’t stop Avi from frequently calling Vanessa on his way home from bars in London; or Vanessa from sending Avi her favorite music of the moment. Avi and Vanessa connected again in LA for a short time and reaffirmed their love for each other- they knew they had to be together!
Despite the distance, their relationship prospered. Two years with the Atlantic ocean between them made their relationship grow stronger. Eventually Avi proposed to Vanessa on the summit of Wheeler Peak, the highest mountain in New Mexico as a tribute to their love for the outdoors.
From the day we first met them, through the engagement shoot and the many email exchanges and phone calls we had with Vanessa and Avi, we came to appreciate them as a couple with kind souls and the most uplifting smiles! Vanessa loved the fact that we are big fans of photographing landscapes and traveling to new places. Something she and Avi are greatly fond of as well. Indeed we incorporated the beautiful setting of their family’s farm house, set in the lush green landscape of Bedford Hills,” wrote Ketanuva.
