From Justin and Mary Marantz:
Sometimes in life you get a freebie. A ‘show up and shoot and everything’s perfect’ kind of gift from the universe, and all you have to do is remember to say thank you. THAT was the kind of day that we had with Angela & Andrew. Everything was perfect, from the location to the light, the theme, and the couple. The day went perfectly and fit perfectly. It was the kind of wedding where you can shoot for 16 hours before you realize that you’re even tired. Because it’s easy and fun and there is beauty everywhere you look. It is at a wedding like this, that you are reminded why it is exactly that you have the best job on earth.
And now….for a little history:
Angela & Andrew could have met many times in multiple countries. They could have met in the tiny unheard of town of Siguenza, Spain four years ago when they both visited the same castle there only two weeks apart. They also could have met when they both lived in Astoria, just five blocks apart…probably crossing paths on the street day after day with no idea that they were brushing shoulders with their soul mate.
But they didn’t.
Some hearts are destined to wait for the perfect timing and the perfect setting. Destined to wait until their hearts are just right and ready to welcome the rarest kind of love. It is a love worth waiting for.
Angela and Andrew were destined to begin their story on the subway when the doors slid open and the two new co-workers stepped off at the same stop and made their way home chatting about a little known castle in the heart of Spain….
What a story right?! And with a story like that, your wedding MUST have details to match. And so, a true North, compass-bearing, antique travel theme was born. Great Gatsby meets Amelia Earheart. Or something like that!!

We love the work that you do and are constantly taking note of the beautiful images that you create and share on your websites and blogs. More often than not we come across images that are so amazing and unique that we want to share them again, so we decided to start doing just that on the Pictage blog.
Recently, New England based photographers Justin and Mary Marantz posted the story and images of Andrew and Angela and their amazing wedding at Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate in Long Island New York. As they describe above, it was a magical day suited perfectly for Angela and Andrew’s fateful beginnings.
Thank you to Justin and Mary for sharing with us.
