I’ve been second shooting a bunch of weddings this year, but Chelsea + Ryan’s Bellport Country Club wedding was my first one of the season. They had such a beautiful sunny day for a wedding on Long Island.
How cute are Chelsea and her girls in the floral robes?
The arbor covered in ivy was made for a wedding dress to be hung on it.
The detailing that went up the mesh on Chelsea’s dress was so pretty.
Chelsea was a little nervous and excited as her sister buttoned up all of those buttons on the back of her dress.
I’m in love with the back of Chelsea’s shoes! Talk about bling!
Ryan wrote a letter to Chelsea.
Chelsea painted and put all these bags together for their guests that stayed at the hotel.
I was so thankful to have my second shooter, Angela, hang out with Ryan and get shots of him getting ready.
I love custom cufflinks.
Looking very handsome, Ryan.
Chelsea also wrote a letter to Ryan.
Chelsea + Ryan decided to do a first look right along the water. The water was the perfect backdrop.
Such a sweet moment. I love that first looks give couples a couple of moments to just be together before they say, “I do” and the crazy day begins.
I loved having a couple of minutes for portraits by the water with that cathedral length veil.
One of my favorites!
We knocked out all of the family portraits before the ceremony since they did a first look.
Chelsea’s little brother, also a Ryan, was the cutest ring bearer.
The back of the dress shots are becoming one of my favorite shots and a must have when shooting.
How cute are Chelsea + Ryan?
I love that he had his hand on her knee during the ceremony : )
The Father had Chelsea and Ryan write letters to each other before the wedding that they then read to each other during the ceremony. There were definitely tears.
The Father had Chelsea + Ryan’s parents come and lay hands on them while he prayed for them. It was a really special moment.
He also had the whole bridal party come to the alter for communion.
Mr. and Mrs. Dugan!!
How adorable is the ring bearer’s sign!?!
We had about 5 minutes for a couple of portraits at the church.
We traveled to the Bellport Country Club for the rest of the portraits.
Good looking groomsmen!
The bouquets were so pretty!
I really loved taking the portraits under this giant tree.
They are so cute together!
I really love this bridal portrait.
Look at those wedding rings!
Chelsea did such a good job with all of the rustic details.
Such simple, but beautiful centerpieces.
Chelsea + Ryan came into the reception ready to party!
They took lessons and had a beautifully choreographed first dance.
Chelsea + Ryan’s guests were all so much fun and were on the dance floor the whole time! I had so much fun capturing all of the fun they were having and got some great shots : )
So much fun!
We went out at the end of the night for a nighttime portrait too!
Congratulations Chelsea + Ryan! You two were so much fun to spend the day with and I’m so happy for the two of you! I’m so glad I got to capture your first day as Mr. and Mrs. Dugan for you!
