Winter Oheka Castle wedding

A winter Oheka castle wedding is truly a sight to see. Oheka is majestic enough, with it’s sprawling lawns and pristine architecture. But to see Oheka rising up from the long driveway, snow swirling around it’s exterior and blanketing the great lawns, is truly extraordinary. It takes a brave bride to plan a winter wedding in the northeast, since you never know when a snowstorm will derail your wedding plans! If it all works out, though, and you get a sweet dusting of snow on your wedding day, it really can add something special. This winter wedding at Oheka castle in Huntington, New York, was sweetness from start to finish. The bride and groom are the most lovely, kind, charming people. The venue was intimate and warm, a great contrast to the snowy outdoors. The light was that brilliant winter light, so sharp and brittle, and so very crisp. Right before the ceremony was set to begin, the bride, groom, bridal party, and families were sequestered in the Oheka library to wait. The guests were being seated, and the wedding ceremony was about to start. The bride was sitting in the most brilliant patch of light, that crystalline-perfect winter light that I adore so much. She was adjusting the bow tie of the little ring bearer, and the scene was perfect. 1/160; f/1.8; ISO 200; 85.0 mm.
