Surf Club New Rochelle Wedding

I had never photographed at the Surf Club New Rochelle before 2015, and I already can't wait to go back! We started the day at the Ritz Carlton of White Plains, and then moved to the Church of the Annunciation in Crestwood, New York, for the wedding ceremony. After that, we headed to Glenn Island Park, near the gorgeous Glenn Island Harbour Club, for some portraits of the bride, groom, and bridal party. Then it was finally time to head over to the Surf Club New Rochelle. The Surf Club on the Sound has two ballrooms, The Penthouse and The Grand Ballroom. Both have gorgeous views of the Long Island Sound, and both are equally warm and inviting. I love this image because it encapsulates everything that I love about wedding photography. There is warm, beautiful, dramatic light on the mother and daughter. There are gorgeous background elements, from the gentle curves of the Vera Wang wedding gown to the vertical lines of the drapes. There is a genuine, naturally occurring moment happening. All of those elements combined with technical skill to capture the image. This was such a fleeting, quick moment, and I was so glad to be there to document it for this mother and daughter! As an aside, how awesome is the flower girl's headband? I loved it! This bride dressed her flower girls in simple black leotards and huge tulle skirts, with great hair and fantastic headbands. I loved the whole look! 1/160; f/2.0; ISO 2200; 85.0 mm.
