Shawn and Julia celebrated their wedding at one of my favorite venues - the Wainwright House in Rye, NY! This romantic soft stone mansion combined with lakeside views is a photographer's dream! After an emotional ceremony where Shawn and Julia were married by Julia's grandfather (who also married her parents!), the couple exited in a convertible vintage car with champagne in hand surrounded by the most adoring crowd. While at the venue, we explored every inch of the grounds together while the sun popped in and out of clouds - my favorite kind of lighting! Cocktail hour and sunset by the lake was pure magic, and the dance floor was never empty thanks to the Storytellers Band. Congratulations Shawn and Julia, on the start of your new forever partnership!

First Looks are my favorite!

How gorgeous are these ladies?!

Julia you are SO radiant!!

This is the moment I said "Hey Julia, throw that lavender at my camera!" And she said "REALLY?!" 

Oh golden sunsets, how I love theeeee! <3

This photo perfectly portrays summer to me. Sitting next to the lake with great friends and a glass (or two) of good wine. You can almost hear the summer crickets! What a perfect wedding!
