The conditions couldn't have been more perfect for Nicole and Anthonys Westchester wedding at the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club on the Long Island Sound in Mamaroneck, New York. When we first arrived at the venue and saw Nicole she was going over the details with the venue staff to make sure her coral themed items made it to their designated place on each guest table. She was all smiles and so excited as we spoke about the day ahead. As the girls were prepping to get dressed they popped some champagne to kick off the celebration in the bridal suite. Downstairs Anthony and his groomsmen did the same and took in the view of the Long Island Sound and New York City over the terrace. As the guys retreated inside to get ready we found a great spot in the reception room for some finishing touches before getting Anthony ready for the first look. Meanwhile with the help of her mother, maid-of-honor and closest friends, Nicole got into her dress put on her shoes and headed out to meet Anthony.
As Nicole walked down the path to meet Anthony we all couldn’t have been more excited. These two were so much fun on their engagement photo session in Dobbs Ferry we knew once they saw each other the sparks would fly. As Anthony turned around Nicole’s face lit up. They laughed, they hugged, they kissed and the rest of the portrait session couldn’t have been easier or more romantic. We walked the grounds of the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club to take in the views of the water, the garden, the dock and some gorgeous trees overlooking the bay… It couldn’t have went any better for us all as we let the couple walk hand in hand on the way to relax before their ceremony.
This was a beautiful intimate ceremony that had everything. Speeches, poetry from their mothers, a close friend officiating and some memorable vows marked a union that was just meant to be. Two people that compliment each other, two loving families and a room full of friends that would make anyone in attendance proud to be there.
As the sun was setting for some last minute golden photo-ops the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club was ready to get the party started. The Love Revival Orchestra started the Second Line to bring everyone inside from cocktail hour. As the couple entered they invited their friends and family to join in all of the festivities. This was followed from an acoustic performance from Nicole’s dad as he had written and played a beautiful song for his daughter on his own guitar. As the party went on and the music played we knew that we had just witnessed a wedding and a love story to remember. Everyone treated us like family and we couldn’t have been more proud to be there to capture every detail of Nicole and Anthony’s wedding day.
