Allison + Bradley ~ Stony Brook, New York Wedding ~ Three Village Inn

Allison and Bradley’s wedding this weekend was our last wedding of 2018! We photographed 55 weddings last year, on top of all of our engagement sessions and it kept us very, very busy! I couldn’t be more thankful for all of our 2018 couples! This wedding was a perfect way to wrap up our year. Allison and Bradley dreamed of a winter wedding, with an outdoor ceremony, with their guests sipping hot cocoa with marshmallows and peppermint sticks wrapped in blankets as they watched them said their I dos… and that is exactly what we did! We started their day at the Three Village Inn {everything was on site which I find takes so much stress off of the couple!}. They both got ready in the cottages behind the venue, and they decided not to do a first look as they wanted to see each other for the first time as Allison walked down the aisle to Bradley! While I was shooting details outside it started snowing and it was just magical! I knew how excited they were to have a winter wedding so snowfall in the background of their detail shots made me smile! If you look closely you can see snow falling on their invitation, and falling behind Allison’s bouquet! The guys also got ready on site, and we photographed both of them, their families and the bridal parties early and separately so they didn’t see each other before the ceremony! Allison wore a beautiful Sophia Tolli gown with her bridesmaids in grey Jenny Yoo’s, and Bradley was in a navy velvet jacket, with the groomsmen matching in black velvet! I absolutely LOVED all of their apparel! Their first look as Allison walked down the aisle brought them both to tears, and their sweet vows were so fitting and seemed so perfect for them. After they were officially married we finished up their portraits and then got them into cocktail hour with a few minutes to spend with their guests! During their reception we snuck out for a bit during golden hour and got the most beautiful warm light for their last photo set of the night. I couldn’t get over how beautiful the light was that afternoon, especially after it was snowing the same morning! I had such a great time working with these two and couldn’t be happier that they were the couple who ended our long but amazing 2018 wedding season!

Congratulations again Allison + Bradley! Here’s to many cozy nights with your fur baby Charlie sipping hot cocoa with all the toppings!
