What an adventurous and fun day photographing this fun couple. I had the opportunity to meet Anthony early in the day and his groom men. As usual with the groom’s preparation, there is such a calm and chill environment. Usually you get to have more time with the bride, so it’s a great opportunity when you have some extra time with the groom. It allowed me to get to know him a bit more. He shared a couple of stories, which were both funny.
The ceremony was held in a beautiful Cathedral in Brooklyn, NY. There is just something amazing about sitting in these remarkable buildings. From there we took a bit of a ride going from Brooklyn all the way to Long Island. Oh how we love the NYC Traffic. However once we got to the amazing Westbury Manor in Long Island, the real fun began. What an amazing venue. The outdoor cocktail hour area was one of the best I’ve seen. While the guests were arriving and enjoy the spread of food, we were on the other side on the grass taking the formal portraits. The mini waterfall was such a nice backdrop.
Once we headed inside for the real fun, the room was nice an spacious. Which for us, is a huge plus. Allows us to be just a bit further away and catch even more candid moments of the families having a great time. All in all what a great day. Both the gorgeous couple and the amazing venue truly made our day easy.
We wish all the best to Nicole + Anthony on their new journey together.
