The wedding day of Danielle and Steven is one for the books. As a Long Island wedding photographer, I've had the privilege of capturing countless moments, but the love and passion between this duo stand out in a unique way.
Our journey began in the Bridal Suite of Flowerfield, where the anticipation and excitement were palpable. The grounds of Flowerfield served as the perfect backdrop for portrait sessions, capturing Long Island's natural beauty intertwined with the couple's genuine emotions.
The ceremony at the outdoor gazebo was nothing short of enchanting. The intimacy of the gathering, set against the serenity of the location, made for an unforgettable atmosphere.
The cocktail hour in the Atrium & Patio was lively, filled with laughter, stories, and a reflection of the couple's journey. The reception, which lasted until 11:00 pm, was filled with dance, joy, and an outpouring of love from family and friends.
A few notable moments and mentions:
- A heartfelt dance between Steven and his mother was a tear-jerker.
- The presence of Danielle's parents, Loretta and Thomas, and their respective partners added a unique dynamic. The capture with Priscilla is sure to be cherished.
- The flower girls, little Arianna and the couple's dog, Sadie, stole many hearts and camera shots.
- The surprise dance with Danielle's mom was an absolute highlight. The raw emotions and bonds were evident.
A special shout-out to Ashley Galzer (@ashleyglazerhair) and Christina Kay (@beautybychristinakay) for their impeccable work on hair and makeup, respectively. The floral arrangements by Flowers by Burton added an extra touch of elegance. The entire ambiance was uplifted by the soulful tunes of Bravura.
For couples looking for inspiration for their Long Island weddings, Danielle and Steven's big day serves as a perfect template. Their love story is a testament to the magic that Long Island couples bring to their wedding day.
Lastly, a huge thanks to the team behind the scenes, especially the limo service from Mark of Elegance and the breathtaking dress from Essence of Australia. It's collaborations like these that make Long Island weddings truly special.
