Meredith and Keith staged an autumn wedding with Mexican touches at the Old Field Club in Setauket, New York. It's one of my favorite wedding venues for being so compact and right on the water. It’s such a pretty setting, and the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and formal photos all take place within steps of each other, making it all feel very easy and relaxed. Every wedding I've shot there has been really down to earth and then a wild party — people dancing up a storm! Nothing more fun to photograph than people really letting go on the dance floor. My fave.
The bride loves all things Mexican and hung these delicate paper cut-outs called papel picado all over the dance floor. I was obsessed with them and, as you'll see here, am not afraid to show it! (As a footnote, I love keeping in touch with my couples on Facebook, and recently was excited to see that Meredith and Keith are finally headed to their beloved Mexico to see Frida Kahlo's house! Trip goals.)
