Emily & Adam’s Wedding at Hempstead House

Emily & Adam were married at the lovely Hempstead House at Sands Point Preserve , on Long Island on a gorgeous day in May. I couldn’t have been more pleased to be their wedding photographer– the day was magical! From the beautiful rooms in this historic mansion (the Guggenheim’s Estate) to the sandy beach just a short walk away, this venue had everything a photographer could want!  I started the day scouting the grounds and finding the beach, then I drove over to Emily’s parents home to capture her getting her hair and makeup done before returning to Hempstead House for her to put her dress on and begin with a “first look” with her groom.  We took them around for portraits outside in front of the mansion and with some nice greenery and to my delight they were even game for walking down the hill and getting some shots on the beach!  After capturing their family groupings we went back indoors for their document signing with close family and their Rabbi present.  Guests arrived to find a lovely outdoor ceremony and refreshing cold drinks awaiting them.  After the ceremony a cocktail hour was held in the adjacent garden area.  The following reception indoors was a thrill to capture– highlights for me included the couple practicing their first dance alone upstairs before entering the reception, a lively hora, toasts from parents and siblings, and in the stead of a traditional wedding cake a donut and pie dessert bar, followed by s’mores and a firepit outside!  Congratulations to Emily & Adam!
