I had the wonderful honor of photographing the Veteran’s Day Wedding Giveback at the very beautiful Brecknock Hall. The selected couple this year was Justin Abbey (Southold) and Susana Andrade (California). He is an E4 Specialist and working toward becoming a Black Hawk Pilot and she is an E5 Sergeant with a FAA certificate for Air Traffic Control. They are stationed together in Fort Drum and both are scheduled to depart for Afghanistan this summer.
This wedding was really special because the families were meeting for the first time! Two families, from opposite sides of the country, American and Mexican, creating a union and celebration that painted a palette of red, white and blue. It was a truly inspirational Sunday afternoon.
