I am excited to share the news that Katie and Zach’s Quogue Field Club Wedding was selected for feature on Borrowed & Blue Real Weddings! Click here to see in full.
Lauren & Dan I adore Lauren and Dan’s sweetness together and the way he lights her up, filling her with tickling giggles. It was a beautiful celebration, beginning at the elegant Jedediah Hawkins Inn where they shared their first look at one another as bride and groom. Once at Raphael, they waited excitedly for guests to arrive, and their dog Muffin watched Lauren intensely, sitting loyally at her feet (one of my favorite images for sure!). Dan’s uncle led the ceremony with humor and grace and the soft light was perfection. Have a look!
Michele & JohnWhat an amazing couple! Michele and John are totally and completely made for one another and both are equally sweet halves, making one incredibly beautiful union. Their ceremony was held at the outdoor chapel of Quinipet on Shelter Island , followed by reception at The Pridwin which always promises a perfect sunset. Here’s some favorites…
Andrea & DavidYes, this is actually a real ceremony on the dock! And even better, it’s been the bride’s dream since she was a little girl. Her treasured memories of playing in these waters and jumping from the dock with her three sisters made this special day that much more special. And even cooler still, the wedding favors were jars of local sea salt made by their close family friend at North Fork Sea Salt Co. Both the ceremony and the reception were held at family properties here on the North Fork and a delicious family style meal was served up by North Fork BBQ Alternatives. The very talented local family trio, Points East was there to set the tone for ceremony and cocktail hour. Andrea was greeted into the reception by The Southold Fish Market with a perfectly heart shaped clam to kick the evening off! Having planned the entire wedding from their home in California, Andrea and David were thrilled to have had so many of their friends and family together in celebration. There were tears, laughter, and lots of kissing! Seriously, so much love going around. It seemed fitting that the cake (made by Andrea’s aunt) looked like something imagined by Walt Disney, because this was truly a dream come true. enjoy a small selection of my favorites…
Katie & ZachIf you don’t already love pink, this wedding will make you fall in love! The ethereal palette and lush textures were simply stunning. It was an exquisite event hosted by The Quogue Field Club and made perfect by A Small Affair (and by the bride’s dad and his lighting skills!). Church of The Atonement in Quogue is definitely one of the most beautiful and unique churches that I’ve ever seen, and their vintage ride after the ceremony made for an exciting departure. And then the party…Katie did tell me that this was a dancing crowd! The day was rich with candy moments. It was elegant and dapper and super silly fun. Enjoy!
Diana & Michael Nothing’s better than that perfect summer haze painting the vines in saturated hues. I loved photographing Diana & Michael, and I especially loved the way they just inhaled one another when seeing each other for the first time. So sweet. The day was a true reflection of this laid back and thoughtful couple, as they enjoyed a fantastic family style meal by Grace & Grit over teary-eyed toasts and tons of laughter.
Laura & AdamThere were so many amazing moments that filled Laura & Adam’s day, it’s hard to say where to start! So here above, one of my favs, when the light filtered in just right, crowning them as husband and wife. Laura is Founder of Blossom Meadow Artisanal Products and is a rock star beekeeper and amazing spokeswoman for pollinators of all kinds. Adam is the man behind Coffee Pot Cellars, so it could not have been more perfect that their wedding day was off the heals of bud break here on the North Fork. Their pug, Beasley, played an integral role in the day as dog ring bearer/bee-like monarch butterfly. Handcrafted felt bugs were a lovely touch to her classic satin gown. And get ready for this…an actual bee decided to join in for the family portraits!! Laura says, “awww” as it crawls up her arm, and then assumes it’s place in the flower bouquet for photos. How’s that for un-bee-lievable! It’s destiny!
