In this photo the bride and groom pose for a romantic and fun wedding portrait in front of the vintage Packard car they rented for their wedding at Coopers Beach in Southampton, NY.
I love the way the soft yellow color of the car contrasts with the blue sky and the sweeping sand dunes.
Coopers Beach is listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the Hamptons and it turned out to be a beautiful location for this Fall wedding.
Coopers Beach is extremely spacious and will never feel crowded. It's pristine white sand, massive sand dunes, crashing waves and ample parking earn this highly rated position.
This photo was taken during the Covid 19 pandemic. The bride and groom had to cancel their large Westchester County wedding and chose to go forth with their nuptials as a micro wedding.
"Micro wedding" is a fairly new nuptial term - it is defined by Huffpost weddings as: “An abbreviated celebration of marriage that only has a handful of invited guests (commonly 20 or less), is shorter in duration and is more simple in format, relaxed in atmosphere and less stress to organize than a traditional wedding.”
Some google searches will produce different articles and definitions describing a micro wedding as 50 guests or less.
Either way, I think "Micro weddings" will continue on as the pandemic rides out and even afterwards.
If you are looking to proceed with your marital plans and want to plan a micro wedding - please reach out to me for your photography needs. I would love to capture meaningful moments and beautiful portraits that you will cherish for the rest of your life.
