To me, there could not be a greater honor than to be hired twice by the same family.
I photographed Vanessa's sister Aimee's wedding four years ago, and was fortunate to be hired for a few weddings of friends of theirs as well. I've thoroughly enjoyed every wedding and each couple has done such an awesome job planning a beautiful wedding! It's been a HUGE pleasure photographing them!
So where do I start with Vanessa and Pete's wedding?
Let's start with the location - Shelter Island, NY! What an awesome place! Friends, family, and the bridal party all stayed and got ready in the cutest little houses complete with white picket fences and picture windows -- the perfect setting for Vanessa to put on her to die for Oscar de la Renta gown. The wedding took place at Union Chapel in the Grove, a beautiful old church just up the road from the ferry dock. The wedding reception, catered by Gracious Thyme, with flowers from Karen Lenahan was set on a hill overlooking the bay complete with sailboats, blue skies and rolling clouds.
Does it get better than this? Despite an unbelievable thunder shower the night before, the weather could not have been more beautiful! Thanks for a great weekend!!
