This candid casual photo of the bride and groom was taken on the great lawn of Old Westbury Gardens in Nassau County on Long Island. Just a short drive out of Manhattan, NYC the estate at Old Westbury provides a stunning backdrop for wedding pictures. In this particular shot the bride and groom are walking across the great lawn towards the mansion on the property. Elsewhere on this web site you will find numerous pictures of the mansion and Gardens at Old Westbury. The mansion rivals every other Gold Coast Mansion on Long Island: The Royalton at Roslyn Country Club, The Glen Cove Mansion, The deSeversky Mansion and Conference Center at NYIT, Mill Neck Manor and Oheka Castle. I have experience photographing weddings at each of these venues and always look forward to creating dynamic wedding photographs on these amazing, timeless properties. After the portrait session here at Old Westbury Gardens we travelled with the bridal party to the couple’s wedding reception venue: Jericho Terrace in Mineola, New York. The chic modern decor of Jericho Terrace contrasted the understated elegance of the estate and gave the bride and groom a finished wedding album with a diversity of backgrounds.
