Quogue Field Club Wedding

Katie & Zach061414_0014If 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!  061414_0024061414_0008061414_0062 061414_0077 (1)061414_0480 061414_0141061414_0148061414_0157061414_0549061414_0475061414_0471061414_0321061414_0511061414_0522061414_0629061414_0637061414_0652061414_0643061414_0677061414_0709061414_0345061414_0751061414_0794061414_0851061414_0859 061414_0845061414_0871061414_1037061414_1035061414_0969061414_0903061414_0889061414_0882061414_0900061414_1050061414_1091061414_1101061414_1098061414_1172061414_1182061414_1306061414_1325061414_1366061414_1371061414_1471061414_1387061414_1420061414_1497061414_1483061414_1524061414_1482

 

 

 

 

Laurel Lake Vineyard Wedding

Diana & Michael060714_1147 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.    060714_0095060714_0065060714_0543060714_0546060714_0298060714_0406060714_0555060714_0811060714_0028060714_1202060714_0996060714_1009060714_1191060714_1210060714_1055060714_1113060714_1119060714_1148060714_1169060714_1159060714_1151060714_1149060714_1180060714_1166060714_1233060714_1242060714_1237 (1)060714_1238

 

 

 

Raphael Vineyard Wedding

Laura & Adam002_9248There 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!  001_1827002_8934002_8932002_9126 (1)002_9120002_9588002_9014002_9028002_9048002_9079003_9169001_1807001_2008001_2002001_2068001_2072002_9236002_9445002_9476002_9261002_9431002_9436002_9413001_2305001_2319001_2321001_2334001_2327002_9594001_2312001_2325002_9458002_9495002_9285002_9299002_9322002_9339002_9347002_9352 (1)002_9358

 

 

 

 

 

Long Island City Waterfront Wedding

Tracy & Chris051014_0333 (1)Cool blues & greys of clouds, water, and city skyline combined with the warm glow from chandeliers playing on smiling faces, antique wallpaper, and brass decorated uniforms.  They happily tell me that it’s almost tradition in their family that it rain on wedding days. After the down pour, the skies clear in time to take a moment for some pictures on the dock right after the ceremony.  And definitely one of my all time favorite wedding moments was when this Navy crew went all “Top Gun” on Tracy and very enthusiastically serenaded her…amazing!       have a look…   051014_0022051014_0054051014_0001051014_0143051014_0069051014_0043051014_0129051014_0182051014_0135051014_0138051014_0205051014_0047051014_0230051014_0330051014_0280051014_0308051014_0346051014_0438051014_0429051014_0424051014_0446051014_0433051014_0459051014_0444051014_0360051014_0588051014_0828051014_0667051014_0690051014_0857051014_0771051014_0965051014_0907051014_0915051014_0912051014_0993051014_1051

 

 

 

 

Westhampton Beach Country Club Wedding

Betsy & Matt                                                                                                          May 3, 2014050314_1728Ahhh…that light!  For a moment the sun kissed the rolling green hills of the golf course while Betsy and Matt savored its warmth and one another.  And what a fantastic party this was!  The celebration was held at the very beautiful Westhampton County Club, which followed a lovely ceremony at The Church of Immaculate Conception.  May 3rd was also Kentucky Derby Day, so the big screens in the bar were tuned in to the big race.  A playful palette of navy, fuschia, and yellow/green was as lively as the crowd (gorgeous floral arrangements by Honeysuckle & Roses).  An extremely adorable pack of young children running about filled the air with joy and love, just the same as the spirit of missed loved ones.  The feast began with grace led by their priest, and friend, and then a night filled with dancing.  There was an outrageous performance of “Let It Go” by the bride’s 2 year old niece.  And the night ended (and after party began) with the Rolling In Dough Pizza Truck.  It was fun working alongside super talented videographers, Brighter Lights Media, and an absolute pleasure photographing Betsy and Matt!
