Erin and Joe’s Wedding day was one to remember for sure! I got to know these two a little better than some of my couples beforehand as we did an Engagement Session and saw each other a little more often than I get to with most. They have a truly sweet bond between them. They are kind, friendly, and genuinely appreciative of the people in their lives. This showed while they celebrated their love with their family and many wonderful friends at Joe’s family’s Vineyard, Macari Vineyards. The weather tried to throw a little wrench but realized it couldn’t bring anyone down, so it soon turned beautiful yet again. Some of the highlights were witnessing Erin’s dad see her for the first time all dressed to the nines as a stunning bride, having doves let go in celebration of the couple (a surprise gift for them), watching Joe’s brother Thomas give his toast and bring the entire wedding to crying laughter, and last but surely not least finding out that Joe is quite a dancer! He whipped Erin around like a pro on that dance floor!

Here are some sweet words from Erin that sum up their love story: “Joe and I knew each other in junior high/high school as we were in band together but didn’t start really talking until we were at a mutual friend’s high school graduation party. A few months later, Joe went to Argentina for an internship and the only way to communicate was through the walkie-talkie Nextel phones. One night while walkie-talkie-ing (I’m pretty sure I just made that phrase up) he asked me to be his girlfriend. Over the next few years, our relationship was long distance as he went to school in the Finger Lakes and I went to school in Florida. He would fly down to Florida for the weekend to visit me and when I was home, I would drive 10 hours by myself to visit him in Canandaigua. While this was difficult, we think it really made our bond and our relationship stronger and proved to us that no matter how far apart we were, we were always able to make it work.
Joe helped to plant the vineyard when he was just 7 years old and has been working there ever since — so naturally it holds a special place in his heart. However, initially, Joe wasn’t too crazy about the idea of having our reception at the winery because he’s there everyday. We both knew we wanted to be outside and ultimately, the beauty of the sunset from the winery deck won and we compromised; the cocktail hour would be at the winery and the guests would be transported by trolley to the tented reception in front of the beautiful red barn just to make our wedding a little different. Joe and I are both low key and wanted our wedding to reflect the type of couple we are. Our main concerns were that the dance floor was big enough, the food kept coming, and the music never stopped. And that it did!”
A special thank you to Joshua Behan, a good friend and amazing photographer for coming from Rhode Island to second shoot with me. He was the perfect fit! Here are some of my favorites to share:

Jaclyn and James have a true connection that you can not miss when you are in their presence. This past Saturday they exchanged their vows at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Mattituck followed by a big celebration with family and friends at the beautiful Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue on the North Fork of Long Island. Mother Nature cleared up the rain that started out in the morning and brought a gorgeous sunny day for them. Here are a few of my favorites to share for a little Sneak peek:

Linda and Chris met at work about ten years ago, they became friends and eventually started dating about seven years later. They are truly super sweet together! They wanted an intimate wedding ceremony and surprised their parents the night before with the news they were having a wedding the next day at the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport! It truly was such a nice ceremony filled with so much love and laughter. We spent some time wandering around the property after the ceremony taking photos in all the beautiful nooks and crannies and they had a blast just enjoying each other. It was an amazing day and I am very thankful they included me as part of it.

Brittany and Carl had what I would call an absolute perfect day this past weekend! They celebrated their love with their family and friends at Founder’s Landing on a gorgeous sunny day! This was a special wedding for me as a whole bunch of my past couples were attending this celebration including Carl’s sister Arline and her husband so it was so much fun to see everyone all together again dancing the night away! This is one of the best parts of being a North Fork Wedding Photographer for sure. Here are a few of my favorites to share:
