I am thrilled to share the pages from the current issue of WellWed-Hamptons Magazine, in which the wedding of two of my lovely clients, Lilly Schonwald and Niklas de LaMotte, is featured! The fantastic couple celebrated their love with a personal and chic wedding in Water Mill, NY, marrying in their own backyard.
Choosing a natural pallet of greens, browns, and earth tones, the intimate ceremony bespoke of a verdant enchanted forest with an air of summer romance. I was humbled when Lilly, who had referred me to her sister seven years earlier to document her wedding at Blue Hill Stone Barn, called me when she became engaged to see which dates I had available. This type of trust between a photographer and her client is incredibly important, and it was right from the start with Lilly really enabled us both to achieve and capture hers and Niklas’ vision for their day. Lilly also smartly worked with a notable Manhattan-based wedding planner Save-the-Date and florist Kim Jon Designs to assure that couple’s playful personality and love for the Hamptons – which was where they spent many summer weekends happily cultivating their relationship– was poignantly conveyed. I was lucky enough to be able to document the entire wedding weekend– from the beautiful clambake on the beach the night before to the brunch held at Lilly’s aunt’s house the following morning. This investment enabled Niklas Nad Lilly to relive the full story of their singular weekend, ensureing that all of the special moments – both grand and candid – were professionally and beautifully documented.
