From our first moments on Lauren & Justin’s wedding day, it kept getting better and better. We arrived at Giorgio’s Restaurant, one of the catering facilities of Long Island’s beautiful North Shore. Justin arrived with his entourage of energetic groomsmen, and they quickly got ready for what promised to be an exciting day. The couple wanted to spend time together first seeing one another before the ceremony and to take some romantic pictures in a private photo session. So, after spending some fun time with Lauren and her bridesmaids, we escorted her out to meet Justin. It was just as beautiful as we knew it would be.
After they were pronounced as man and wife, Lauren & Justin strutted back down the aisle, completely pleased with themselves and Lauren repeating to Justin, “We’re married!”
The highlight of the day for us personally was when we were able to secretly steal away with Lauren & Justin for a very special set of photos that they had been planning for almost a year. Lauren had one of the most beautiful gowns we’ve seen this year (and as is the growing trend, it was NOT WHITE â€” we were so excited for her and will be blogging more about non-white gowns in a later blog entry!!). And she wanted to to go out into the Long Island Sound for some really romantic and really WET portraits with her groom. A little crowd gathered around us as we started shooting. It was awesome! They couldn’t believe their eyes as they saw Lauren & Justin going out into the water, lying on the shore, and simply having a blast with it all.
As we started to walk back towards the car, a man with a Waverunner and tubes asked if they wanted to get on the tubes. We thought they were going to simply pose for a final shot or two, but when he asked if they wanted to go OUT, they said “yes”. And away they went!!! UNBELIEVABLE! What a fantastic way to end the day!! Tubing together into the sunset!! 🙂
Lauren & Justin, thank you so much for the way you’ve trusted your “crazy photographers” from Day One. The day exceeded even our own expectations. And we’re so proud of the way you guys were able to accomplish everything that you’d planned with your day. Thank you for your kindness and the tasty meal. We had a wonderful time with your family and friends.
