Oceanside Backyard Wedding | Sydney + Evan


This Oceanside backyard wedding for the happiest New York City couple was an absolute favorite of mine. The neutral hues, lapping waves and gorgeous details set the tone for a truly stunning day at St. Malo beach, which is part of a private community built after a town in France of the same name. Throughout the afternoon, I felt the romance and magic of this place, this love. It was all such paradise, a perfect way to begin a lifetime. 

Sydney's dress was custom designed, delicate and sheer with tassles and incredible edges. It's always so special to see each way a bride expresses herself for this most significant moment. How her dreams come to be this exact material against her skin, held by him, underneath this golden light. I get to see all of that, capture it for husband and wife, and re-gift it to them, so that something they lived becomes something they can touch and always remember--a stolen kiss, a knowing smile, a time shared with the whole family. 

While getting ready, during their first look on the beach, and as everyone gathered around lush tableware beneath an open canopy, Sydney's and Evan's connection radiated as sunshine reaches across the sea, sparkling and endless. I will carry their warmth with me.
