Carlyle on the Green Wedding PhotosI love this soft elegant portrait of the bride taken by the light of a beautiful window in her home. This picture was made right after she finished getting dressed for the big day ahead. Her maid of honor and bridesmaids were looking on in awe as I posed the bride in the elegant surroundings of her family’s home. In a few short minutes we would be on our way to St. Paul Greek Orthodox Church for the traditional Greek wedding ceremony. Her father would escort her up the aisle and give her away to the groom patiently waiting and looking on from the altar. The groomsmen, standing behind the groom were looking on also....catching the expression on the groom’s face as his beautiful bride approached. Later in the day we would all travel to the reception venue, Carlyle on the Green, located on the grounds of Bethpage State Park...home of the world famous Black Course...twice the location of the US Open golf tournament. Carlyle’s fame stretches far beyond the links however. It is truly one of the most elegant venues for a wedding reception anywhere. The main dining room can accommodate hundreds of guests, the building and grounds are absolutely stunning...a wedding photographer’s paradise. The cuisine is exquisite and the service is impeccable.
