Tina & Ryan – Long Island Wedding
Tina and Ryan tied the knot on January 4th, 2020 and it was the perfect way to kick off all the weddings of 2020! I arrived to Tina and all the ladies were in matching flannel shirts, perfect for a winter wedding. After a few alterations and updates, Tina wore her mother’s wedding dress, which looks absolutely amazing on her! The whole morning you could tell she was ready to see Ryan and get the celebration going so shortly after she was all ready to go, we headed outside for their first look. You could hardly call it a Winter wedding because it was gorgeous outside! Their elegant and classic look of white and black for their wedding party and decor was stunning at The Estate at East Wind Long Island.
One they made their vows official and added a little bling to their ring fingers it was time to chow down on some delicious looking food. I walked around the cocktail hour space in awe at the amount and variety of food that they provided for their guests! East Wind totally outdid themselves and the aroma’s of mini cheese burgers, finger foods and a make your own fancy taco bar was intoxicating. Then on top of all that, they still had dinner to eat!! But with all of the dancing that occurred right after cocktail hour they all worked up an appetite! I’m pretty certain Tina didn’t step off the dance floor once her feet touched it. It was packed with the help of Tommy from LI Sound DJ, these guys were fantastic!
One of my favorite parts of this amazing wedding day was their night time portraits! I don’t do a lot of these but all the lights outside on the trees and lanterns that lit up a pathway were a must! After a few shots I looked at the back of my camera and jumped with excitement at how incredible they looked in this night time scene!
The setting, the people, and all the love shared between Ryan and Tina made this a day to remember!
