Bali Hai, Shelter Island Wedding – |Michaela + Stuart|

This was one of those rare weddings where I didn’t meet the couple prior, since they live in Northern California! I actually didn’t really have much communication at all, since their amazing planner Courtney from After the Engagement had everything under control! It was kind of fun, getting to know them that day and learning their fun personalities! Michaela was the epitome of calm. Playing with her pup, laughing with her girls. She was classy and collected. I loved her non traditional dress and bright red bouquets! And of course you know I was obsessed with her red lips!

During the ceremony, it started to sprinkle which with most couples, might freak them out. But these two were thrilled and it took it as a sign of Stuart’s late mother giving her blessing. Stuart also surprised Michaela with the wedding band she lusted after but was told she couldn’t have. I loved knowing the surprise was coming and seeing her shocked reaction.  The entire day was laughter, joking around and lots of beautiful light!  Ceremony + Reception Venue: Bali Hai Restaurant
