Brecknock Hall Wedding | Rebecca and David | We’ve Only Just Begun

This recent wedding at Brecknock Hall is extra special to me.

Rebecca wrote me the warmest and most complimentary inquiry, moreover; she shared that she and her fiance David were 61 years old and never married before.

Upon reading her email, I knew I immediately wanted to work with this couple.

However, (brokenheartedly) I was already booked for her date; so I referred her to my photographer friend.

Months went by and Rebecca emailed me again as her wedding date had to be rescheduled because she tripped while out running and broke her shoulder.

She expected (and has made) a full recovery and wanted to know if I was available for her new date (I was! February 29th – A Leap Year wedding!)

Rebecca arrived at Brecknock Hall to get ready in the lovely upstairs bridal suite after completing her morning run!

She looked radiant in her Pronovias’ gown and her bridesmaids dresses were made out of their family tartan from Ireland.

Surrounded by their closest family and friends as well as Rebecca’s 91 year old mom they exchanged vows at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Greenport.

Rebecca’s brother, dressed in a kilt; played bagpipes as they exited the church.

Rebecca and David first met in 1986 at the law firm where they had both been working.

Over the next three decades their paths continued to cross as they both lived separate lives and changed jobs and even went on a casual date.

But it wasn’t until 2011 that their relationship turned romantic and the rest is history.

They danced to The Carpenter’s, “We’ve Only Just Begun” for their first official dance.

A perfect and poignant song choice as they embark on this new chapter as husband and wife.

Sharing some of my favorites from their wonderful day.
