A DREAM WEDDING
From the first time I spoke to Mary Kate on the phone, I knew she was my dream client. She is funny, laid back and ready to have an amazing day marrying her best friend. Once she explained her venue, Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club, I was completely sold. This gorgeous Hamptons spot has it all. Complete with a beach front location, wrap around cocktail patio, and a simple white interior, it is a wedding photographer’s dream palate. I knew I was stepping into one of my favorite weddings of the year as soon as I arrived at the family’s home in Sag Harbor. Mary Kate welcomed me by skipping down the stairs and giving me a big “I’m so excited to finally meet you hug!” And what a fun day it was!
THE WEDDING DAY: BRIDGEHAMPTON TENNIS AND SURF CLUB
The day began with the girls getting ready at Mary Kate’s adorable vacation home, which was full of beachy inspiration for me to photograph. The bride’s gown and bridesmaid’s navy blue dresses fit in perfectly with the classic nautical hamptons look. That said, this stylish wedding party didn’t rely too heavily on this tried-and-true theme. They stepped it up a notch with super romantic blush and white bouquets, bring the wedding to a whole new level of elegance.
Having an amazing, fun time was the priority of the day (which is perfect in my book!). So, after the ceremony at St. Andrew’s, we explored the adorable town of Sag Harbor, snapping candid shots along the way. It was easy taking photos of these two lovebirds. They couldn’t hide the smiles on their faces while strolling around their favorite town with all of their favorite people! After that we headed to the beach outside Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club for some gorgeous sunset photos. Finally it was time to go back inside for a crazy fun dance party!
