Weddings

Fall Vineyards at Aquebogue Wedding, NY | Charlotte & Thomas

Their Wedding: Vineyards at Aquebogue, Riverhead, NY

I couldn’t wait to see Charlotte and Tom on their wedding day after so many months since their engagement session! It was such a beautiful and sunny day, which was the perfect way to ring in the fall season! Even though it was their wedding day, both Charlotte and Tom were so conscious of how everyone else was doing and wanted to make sure everyone was happy. They truly are two of the most kind-hearted people I’ve met and it shows in everything they do.

I loved the special pendant that Charlotte wore, the sweet cards they wrote for one another in the morning, and that their venue had chickens running around freely! Charlotte and Tom have a few of their own chicken at home that you can see from their engagement session, so it was such a perfect way to make their wedding day truly their own! Their flower girls were just too darn adorable as they came down the aisle in a little wagon, and I still can’t get over how romantic Charlotte and Tom’s first dance together was. It was just such a beautiful and special day getting to celebrate such an amazing couple!!

Their Love Story

For Charlotte and Tom’s first date, they headed out to the beach one day in late May, fully equipped with sushi and a picnic blanket. Now that’s my kind of date!! They had an instant connection and recall the day being filled with lots of laughter!

When I asked each of them what their favorite quality about each other was, their answers seriously tugged at my heartstrings! Charlotte described Tom as, “the type of person who will take his shirt off of his back for you. He is so kind and giving. He goes above and beyond what any human normally would for other humans. He is truly the kindest person to his core” and Tom told me how he loves Charlotte’s passion for the environment, how she has helped him realize “that there is much more to life than just going to work and mowing the lawn” and that Charlotte just makes him a better person. These two are such sweet souls!

Charlotte and Tom,

You two really are such sweethearts and I absolutely LOVED getting to hang out with you back at your engagement session to your wedding day. I’ll forever be obsessed with you two running through those vineyards and taking in the best day ever! I couldn’t have thought of a better way to enjoy that perfect fall day than by capturing your beautiful love story! Congratulations, love birds!! <3 So so happy for you two! Love you bunches!
