There is nothing more classic than a summer wedding by the sea! It was such a pleasure to photograph this Seawanhaka wedding, so many great vendors were on hand.
The day starts at the bride’s family home in Oyster Bay. All 10 of her bridesmaids are on hand in matching PJ’s from Roller Rabbit. She dresses in her beautiful Lela Rose gown and we take some fun and classic portraits in the backyard. (The fun ones include using leftover bachelorette party props featuring the groom’s face!)
The ceremony is held at St. Patrick’s Church in Huntington, New York and features a traditional Catholic ceremony with a receiving line and a bubble exit! The reception is at Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club, about 30 mins away. With a Sperry tent and flowers by Andrew Pascoe featuring blue hydrangeas, it is beautiful setting indeed.
A bright sunny day with gorgeous views of Oyster Bay, we take photos on the huge lawn and later on the dock near sunset. At sunset, the groom sets-off a small cannon when the flag is taken down, an old yacht club tradition.
Dinner follows as the cooler breezes started to enter the tent. Speeches literally make everyone cry it seems and then dancing to the amazing Hank Lane Artie Stuart Band begins. Sadly, I didn’t get to try any of the delicious looking Lady M Confections crepe cake. It looks so yummy!
