What a place to say “I do”. It was such a beautiful day at Northfork Farm, with a stunning backdrop and gorgeous weather. Capturing the love between a bride and groom is always an amazing experience—but it’s even more incredible when you do it in the most beautiful places.
The bridal suite at Northfork Farm is stunningly beautiful and the perfect spot to get ready on your wedding day. I loved being able to capture the moments of reflection as Stephanie got ready and excitedly waited for the ceremony to begin.
Stephanie and Richard held their ceremony on the most beautiful field, right next to a pasture where horses grazed. The wind rustled through the treetops, creating a calm and serene atmosphere. Stephanie’s stepdad guided her toward the ceremony space between the fence lines where Richard was waiting. I think his reaction to seeing Stephanie was my favorite moment.
After the ceremony, it was time to take photos of the newlyweds, family photos, and wedding party photos. There are so many beautiful places on the farm that I could have kept photographing them for hours…but alas, it was time to party!
The gorgeous White tent on the property held the reception. There was ample space for people to spill out during cocktail hour on the patio or to break away from the dancing to enjoy a quiet space to chat and enjoy the roaring fire that was built at dusk. The wedding weekend was filled with so much laughter and dancing, but it was also filled with moments to relax and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.
Stephanie and Richard, I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness.
