There are some weddings you fall in love with the moment you see them, and this barn wedding from Cadence Kennedy is definitely one of them. Sweet + intimate, with so many thoughtful details. Vintage trucks, hand-lettered signs and gorgeous florals. Oh, and Melissa + Tony's adorable puppy even makes an appearance (in a doggie tux!)... immediately making this wedding one of favorites!
I'm not only a photographer but an equestrian. If you knew me, you’d know how much I love horses. If I could keep mine in my backyard, I would. So when this bride first emailed me and mentioned that her wedding would take place at a barn, I think my heart skipped a beat.
Through the power of social media, Melissa had found me. Melissa & Tony’s wedding was a week after my own, but nothing was stopping me from photographing their special day. The couple was my first from Wantagh, and having them drive around the block to my office was truly an amazing feeling.
On October 18th, I made my way to Riverhead. The location, the details, the color palette, and of course the couple is what makes this collection so wonderful. Being it was a week after my own wedding, I could truly appreciate all these things Melissa had done. As she prepared to see Tony for the first time, it was like I could feel that excitement again. My favorite photograph from their collection is the embrace between the two during the first look. There is truly nothing like it.
