Vineyards Long Island Wedding
Lauren + Steven’s Vineyards Long Island Wedding was 5 years in the making, but they could have planned it from the moment they met. The next day after meeting Steve, Lauren announces to her sister over Starbucks, “I met my husband last night.” Then with a hearty laugh and a rolling of her eyes, she responded, “Lauren, no one meets there husband at JW’s bar.” Well, they met there again for drinks the night before New Years Eve 2011 and married nearly 5 years later. Who knew? Well, possibly no one except Lauren.
Lauren + Steven:
You two are wonderful, fun-loving humans. More than any detail or beauty of the wedding day, we absolutely love celebrating a marriage of two people that complete and compliment each other so well. Thank you so much for stopping us at Erica and Mike’s wedding and inviting us to be a part of something we will not forget. We love you for that. You are a girl who knows what she wants when she sees it! XX
Love when mom and dad get some moments with their son before the wedding. Now here are some handsome groomsmen looking dapper. Nice socks guys!!This love is sweet and so are these gold toned invitations… You gotta love an organized bride with an eye for detail! Having important details in a beautifully lit room is a lovely way to preserve memories of the day. And we won’t mention the happy dance your photographer will probably do! Hope no one saw that…LOL What a great idea for bridesmaids gifts! Lauren selected jewelry to match her girls gowns and then let them decide which pieces they liked best. Win-win! This pup loved being a part of Lauren’s day. He even put on his best bow tie. Too cute! Totally in love with Lauren’s tulle and lace custom Alvina Valentina gown and Badgley Mischka shoes with personalized decals from Etsy. First looks with dad are some of our favorite moments. And these two are so sweet they nearly had me in tears. Here comes the bride… When the groom excitedly jumps to “I do”… Vineyards Long Island Wedding venue is a gorgeous setting with plenty of room for a variety of settings for family, bridal party and this adorable couple. So glad they allowed plenty of time for these timeless moments… Then an outdoor cocktail hour and a bride and groom signature drink… And personalized wine corks to hold place cards. Lauren kept her mom close with memories throughout the day with pictures and a beautiful quote from J.K. Rowling. There’s no doubt she would love this man who treasures you so dearly. Then they danced and danced…
A special thanks to a wonderful team that helped make this wedding absolutely fabulous!
