Dave & Jess, September 15; Bay Shore
Living in Washington D.C. and planning a wedding in Long Island probably wasn't the easiest thing for Dave and Jess, but everything clicked on Saturday as friends and family convened in Sayville and Bay Shore for a day-long celebration.
Dave and Jess booked photographer Roberto Falck who then referred them to Tim Alan Studios for video. Demonstrating the importance of photographer/video compatibility and a good referral, the couple signed on soon after. Tim Alan shooter Geoff arrived at St. Lawrence the Martyr in Sayville to capture the guests arriving and a beaming Jess being escorted down the aisle by her father. After a lengthy ceremony and greeting line in the lobby, Dave and Jess were given a shower of flowers as they exited the church to their waiting vintage car.
The wedding party, traveling in a trolley, followed the couple to Bayard Cutting Arboretum where photos and good times were had. The groomsmen showed off the pocket watches they received as gifts while some of the bridesmaids helped Jess touch up her make-up in the trolley before taking photos.
The group then headed to the Southward Ho Country Club where the grounds proved to be a perfect backdrop for photos as guests enjoyed cocktail hour, bagpipers and the personalized 'Jess & Dave' drink holders.
Dave and Jess were introduced to a warm reception and then the festivities commenced. To simply say their friends liked to party, would be like saying that most brides take some interest in planning their weddings. The highlight was probably a group of 30 holding candles and singing Elton John's "Ballerina" as they swayed to the beat.
A night to remember to be sure....
