I recently photographed two East End weddings.
Last month I photographed a bride whose mother handmade her daughter’s wedding dress.
This month I photographed a bride that handmade her own wedding gown.
What are the chances of that?
In both instances I became excited and grateful that I would be documenting these weddings.
To have worked with such talented and creative women that poured their hearts into making something so meaningful has left me feeling truly blessed.
I haven’t blogged these weddings yet, so I am only going to share a handful of images or so.
Hanging in the bridal suite of the beautiful Pellegrini Vineyards.
This dress awaits Jessica to get into it , as well as the amazing sash her Mom created for it which was the crowning touch.
I love the seaming and the different textures.
How romantic is this dress?
I love this sweet portrait of the bride and groom on the front lawn of Pellegrini Vineyards.
I will be blogging this wedding soon and cannot wait to share more.
This bride transported her gown to Shelter Island and brought her dress form with her, which I thought was a really nice touch.
The wedding was held at her grandmother’s house.
I adore the buttons going up the back of the gown and the two ties at the shoulders.
Placing the bride on this dock with some height showcased her exquisite gown and its’ wonderful seaming/draping ,allowing it to hang down.
The unique train had “lily pad” like flowers sewn onto the back of it.
It truly was a work of art.
I feel so honored to have met these wonderful women and to document their labors of love.
