When photographing an Oheka Castle wedding, I often find myself wondering, “Where I am? Have I been transported from Long Island to a French Chateaux?” Any Oheka Castle wedding is beautiful because the grounds are simply breathtaking. However, Liz + Joey’s was special. The wedding day was classic, elegant, and luxurious. Most importantly ,we had so much fun with this sweet and playful couple!
When Liz + Joey asked me to photograph their wedding, I was so honored. I had been the wedding photographer at Joey’s sisters wedding a few years prior and truly loved working with their family.
Liz looked absolutely stunning in her Pronovias gown. Joey perfectly complimented her in his classic tuxedo. Because they wanted a classic look, the bridesmaids wore long, elegant black gowns and carried fall-colored bouquets for a pop of color.
Rain is not something that anyone wishes for on their wedding day. While every couple wishes for sun, rain can be equally beautiful. The day began overcast and then gradually started to rain. This did not stop Liz + Joey from braving the weather and taking outdoor pictures. Because they embraced the rain, we were able to create stunning wedding photos. One of my favorite quotes ever is “Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.” If it rains on your day, embrace it.
It seems no one wants it to rain on their wedding day. Because you can not control the weather, all you can do is embrace it. Because Liz and Joey did just that, we were able to capture some amazing images.
There is nothing we love more than sweet candid moment between a bride and her father.
I always wonder what the groom says when I ask them to whisper something into the bride’s ear. Joey probably said something super funny here.
We love a bridal party that is willing to do anything for the pictures.
