Denise and Dave were married on the North Fork of Long Island on a beautiful warm September day. They found me through Chris & Kelly who they grew up with and it was fun to see Kelly’s Brother Tommy again 🙂

Denise got ready upstairs and was very relaxed while all the preparations swirled around downstairs 🙂

They chose to do a first look which made everyone much more relaxed and also gave us plenty of time for portraits

Denise carried her Grandmother’s handkerchief around her bouquet

Denise & Dave’s nephews charmed everyone the whole day 🙂

Let the ceremony begin!

Dave was laughing but then got serious when he saw Denise – I love how even when people see each other beforehand to do photos that moment at the top of the aisle is still so emotional and special

Denise had a big smile on her face but as she got closer there were also some tears 🙂

There was a very funny moment during the ceremony when the officiant called up Denise’s Brother in Law to do a reading and it turns out that Dave had forgotten to ask him 🙂 Everyone cracked up and it really lightened the mood.

Note to couples: Have your officiant carry a copy of all the readings just in case anyone forgets theirs!

Emotional again while exchanging vows 🙂

And then – time to party!

As sunset drew near the sky turned the most amazing shade of blue

And then a beautiful sunset developed

The party was kicked off with Denise & Dave sharing their first dance

And then dancing with their parents

Denise’s sister’s toast was sweet and Dave’s Brother’s toast was very funny – he gave Denise props for staying up late enough to attend her own wedding….apparently she is usually in bed by around 9 🙂

And then the party really got underway and lasted well into the night

The nephews made a valiant effort but crashed halfway through the night 🙂

Congratulations Denise & Dave!!
