Raphael Vineyard and Winery is one of The North Fork's premier Long Island wineries. It is a stunning choice to host your vineyard wedding and I loved photographing this wedding there.
Your guests will feel as though they have been transported to Napa Valley.
In fact, this bride and groom originally wanted to plan a destination wedding in Napa Valley California, but scrapped those plans upon falling in love with Raphael Vineyard.
This image was taken in their gorgeous bridal suite. I love capturing tender unscripted moments. And it takes a special bride to take a moment out of her own hectic getting ready time to apply lip gloss to her Jr. bridesmaid.
Moreover the lighting is beautiful and dramatic reminiscent of a Caravaggio painting.
Raphael Vineyard is family owned and offers 70 acres of gorgeous views amidst stunning architecture that has a Mediterranean flair.
