While I live and breathe city weddings much of the year, I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to go East to the Hamptons or a stone’s throw further to the Ram’s Head Inn on Shelter Island. In Manhattan you tend to have wedding timelines with precision to the second, but with each mile East you drive, you feel more and more at peace and what comes comes. We’ll get to the ceremony on time – it’s only a few minutes away. 15 minutes for portraits? No big deal. It’s gorgeous everywhere. Everyone’s in such a good mood.
As you can expect, everyone hopes and prays for perfect weather on the wedding day. But I always contend that if it does rain, you’ll get pictures you never would have otherwise. I love that Kate & Lucien were happy to roll with mother nature and ad libbed with an umbrella in the rain. Making our way to the Inn, the guests were super happy and in great spirits to be merry and celebrate.
