Flowerfield is a wedding and event venue located in St. James, Long Island, New York.
The venue is situated on six and a half acres of lush gardens and greenery. The property was originally a farm in the early 1900s and was later used as a flower nursery. The venue itself was established in the 1980s and has since been renovated and expanded.
Flowerfield is renowned for its stunning and impeccably maintained landscaping, which features an array of colorful flowers, manicured hedges, and lush greenery. The outdoor areas are breathtakingly beautiful, with a variety of garden spaces, water features, and other charming details that make it feel like a secret garden oasis. As a wedding photographer, this gives me a lot of locations to work with! You can change locations for your photos, your wedding party photos, and your family photos and still not exhaust the outdoor options and backdrops.
The property includes a picturesque courtyard, which is perfect for photos, and several open lawns. The landscaping and outdoor areas at Flowerfield are a testament to the care and attention that goes into creating a truly beautiful space.
The indoor water area at Flowerfield is fascinating - not many wedding venues have an indoor water feature like this one! The space is designed to create a peaceful and serene environment, with a tranquil pool surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful natural light. The water itself adds a unique and dynamic element to any event or photoshoot, reflecting the light and adding a sense of depth to the space. It's the perfect spot for photos, especially at night.
Indoors, the main ballroom is a lovely setting for a classic, elegant wedding. The neutral color palette and spacious layout provide a blank canvas for couples to customize their decor and make the space their own. I really love that. The soaring ceilings and sparkling chandeliers add a touch of glamour to the proceedings, while the large windows allow guests to enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenery. It's always so nice to bring the outside in!
Another standout feature of Flowerfield is the outdoor ceremony area, which is located on a lush lawn surrounded by manicured gardens. The natural beauty of the surrounding landscape provides a perfect backdrop for couples to exchange their vows. The serene water features and fragrant flowers make the space feel like a secret garden, adding a touch of romance to the occasion.
As a wedding photographer, I am always excited to capture the uniqueness of each wedding venue. At Flowerfield, I love playing with the natural light to create stunning portraits of the couple and their loved ones. The soft, diffused light of the indoor spaces is perfect for capturing intimate moments, while the golden hour light outside creates a warm and dreamy effect. The neutral color palette and classic elegance of the space really allows me to create, create, and create some more.
Overall, Flowerfield is a truly special venue that offers couples a one-of-a-kind setting for their wedding day. The combination of indoor and outdoor spaces, natural light, and elegant decor make it a photographer's dream.
