A winter wedding at the Milleridge Cottage on Long Island is exactly what Nicole always dreamed. When I met Nicole, I remember how excited she was about her wedding plans. She told me about the snowflake decorations, the hanging mistletoe, the embroidered Christmas stockings and her three dogs that would wear tuxedos and a wedding dress as they proceeded down the aisle. It was her passion that drew me in and I was so happy when she chose me to photograph her wedding.
The day started with the biggest smile you can imagine from Nicole. She could hardly wait to show me her dress hanging in her childhood room. One of my most favorite wedding photos of the day is the photo of Nicole in her dress, taken just after her mom made the final touches. There is something to be said about how the nostalgia and comfort one feels from getting ready at in their home can bring a photo to life. Nicole originally wanted to get ready at a hotel and while that definitely would have been more convenient, I don’t think the photos would have the same meaning to her as these did.
Please enjoy the wedding photos. Nicole completely outdid herself in creating a mood for her wedding that was extraordinary. It was exactly as she envisioned it. Congratulations Nicole and Eric.
