Do you remember Carmine and Michael’s Gatsby inspired engagement session over the summer at an abandoned Gold Coast Mansion? Well the big day was just as Gatsby inspired – they didn’t disappoint!
We started the day at the Roslyn Hotel – a historic hotel that immediately set the tone for the day. Michael and Carmine got ready in the same room which was a treat for me and my second photographer. After a few photos around the hotel we raced to the Swan Club down the road to capture the last bit of sunlight we had. Did you take a peek at that bridal party? I believe there are 31 (yes, thirty-one) people in that bridal party! Both Michael and Carmine had their “own” bridesmaids and groomsmen and all of a sudden there were 31 people standing there ready to take photos on the cool waterfront! I loved the ladies blush and sparkly gowns with lanterns decorated with florals (I heard Carmine drove all over Long Island to find these lanterns) and the groomsmen with their classic black tie look. I can’t forget to mention the handsome grooms in their white jackets and matching red bottom Louboutins!
Every last detail was thought about – the vows were written in a copy of “The Great Gatsby”, all of the reception room decor brought you back to the 1920’s, and not to mention live entertainment with a cigar roller, cigarette girls, fresh made donuts on site, and a pop singer! This party was absolutely insane – everyone will be talking about this wedding for years to come.
Congratulations Michael and Carmine! Cheers!
