It was an incredible day celebrating two wonderful events! A beautiful baptism at St. Lawrence in Sayville and the romantic wedding on the beach at The Pavilion at Sunken Meadow! Tracey & Dusan’s unbelievably romantic and glamorous beach wedding looked like we were transported to the Caribbean! Beautiful family joining together for a fantastic day.

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love New England. I jumped at the opportunity to go to Boston for Katie & Keith’s engagement session! It was a real treat photographing this very sweet couple in the great city of Boston. Katie has a beauty & elegance about her and she looked absolutely perfect in her gown. Keith’s natural good looks and his easy demeanor was perfect for Katie! They were married on an absolutely stunning spring day here on Long Island, Making a brief stop at The Common Ground for their portraits we were off to the magnificent Lands End. Lands End never disappoints with their gorgeous garden and beautiful beach. There we enjoyed the rest of the evening photographing their family and friends! It was self evident how much this couple was loved by so many people that came to their wedding from all over the country!
Traveling back to the bride’s home for the wedding Theresa & Michael treated their guests with a beautiful destination wedding right here on Long Island, NY. The uniqueness of Flowerfield Celebrations is Theresa & Michael have their own personal arboretum & vineyard overlooking a fantastic pond. The couple enjoying the grounds with beautiful manicured lawn and large majestic trees, who could ask for a more romantic location. The wedding celebration made a statement with guests traveling all over the country to share in this special day. With another gorgeous spring day Theresa & Michael’s wedding will not soon to be forgotten.
From the moment you meet Jackie & Jason you can feel the connection and love. This wedding was an enchanted by all of the special & magical touches of Disney. Jackie & Jason forever images was photographed at Flowerfield in St. James NY. With Flowerfield’s manicured gardens and green vineyards was absolutely stunning. One of my favorite images with Jackie & Jason is with the Magnolia tree. The beautiful flowers adds more romance to already beautiful landscape. Their ceremony at the gazebo surrounded by beautiful reflecting ponds and splashing water fountains was pure elegance. The blending of two families, two cultures with bride and groom writing their vows to each other it was a perfect ceremony. The sign says it all Happily Ever After Begins Here… The ballroom was decorated beautifully with all of the sparkle and glam but it didn’t compare to Jackie, she truly sparkled! The celebration continued into the night everyone dancing to Tommy Tunes and enjoying this magical time together. I will always remember my fantastic Disney Couple. On this day Jackie was a Disney Princess. Flowerfield it is a hidden gem located in Long Island!
What is better than a beach wedding in NY? A beach wedding with wonderful family and friends by your side. Kimberly & Felix’s wedding was exactly that, love and support of their VIPs. They had a beautiful church wedding and after they said “I do,” they were off to the amazing Lands End, located in beautiful Sayville NY on the Great South Bay. Lands End with a beautiful beach and perfectly landscaped garden was the perfect place for their forever images. We had so much fun photographing Kimberly & Felix and their bridal party, I loved their unique and fun style with a sense of adventure. The bridesmaids looked great in their turquoise dresses and Kimberly was absolutely stunning in her gown. Seeing the look in the groom’s eyes, you can see how much he loves her. His hands shaped like a heart is a true reflection of their love! Felix and his groomsmen looked fantastic in their grey tuxedos was perfect for their beach wedding. The rest of the day the bride and groom danced with their guests and enjoyed the wonderful cuisine of Lands End. At the end of the reception was the moment of the bouquet & garter toss. It was so much fun watching Felix celebrating and dancing for the garter. Can’t help but laugh out loud! Kimberly & Felix are so sweet and sincere it shows in their forever images.
