Alexa and Zack were married at the Village Hall in Port Jefferson New York. Their outdoor wedding ceremony was on the lawn in front of family and friends. It was HOT & humid and the weather called for rain; but we seemed to get lucky and it waited until after the festivities. You wouldn’t know how hot it was from the photos, Alexa looked flawless!
A quick trip to the Setauket Duck Pond in Setauket New York for some more wedding photos. The entire bridal party, along with extended family walked to the beautiful stone bridge. This is such a beautiful setting for wedding photography with the mature trees, the stone bridge, the red barn and the watermill. Many family photos were taken that day. We even replicated a childhood photo of the Bride with her family taken in the same spot!
The bridal party and wedding guests then proceeded to Schafer’s Restaurant for a lunch buffet. The luncheon was very relaxed, everyone was smiling and having such a good time. It may have been because of the Mashed potato bar or that many of the bridal party were playing Pokémon Go! Either way, I was left wondering if they caught any Pokémon?
After the luncheon the wedding reception concluded at the home of the parents of the Groom. Others who have had backyard receptions could not wish for a lovelier space to host a wedding.
Everyone was dressed for the occasion, even Oscar, the families’ schnauzer in his doggie tuxedo. He was the official “welcome wagon” of the reception. The wedding floral arrangements were a great contrast the blue bridesmaid’s dresses. The Bride had a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers and the rest of the bridal party had rose boutonnieres and corsages.
The at home wedding reception was next to the pool but you had to pass by all of the trays of desserts (with as much willpower as you could muster)
The best man and the Bride’s sister gave their toasts and the Bride & Groom cut the cake. We squeezed in some more family photos before I headed back to business in the Poconos.
Thank you for the Long Island hospitality and congratulations again Alexa & Zack!
