The minute after I took my last picture at Emily & Blayne’s Shelter Island wedding hosted on their parent’s farm, I could not wait to share these images. It was one of the most beautiful Shelter Island wedding venues I’ve ever seen. I love backyard weddings and their Long Island backyard wedding was absolutely no exception. From the beautiful farm down to the smallest, hand crafted detail and every dachshund in between, it was a perfect day. The amazing amount of detail that Emily and Blayne put into this wedding was almost mind-blowing. Every time I took a photograph of one custom detail there was another just waiting to be captured right next to it. Just an amazing DIY wedding that I would capture over and over again.
Their love for each other was infectious and their sense of adventure to try any and every location I could think of never wavered, even with the bugs & heat. As a fellow miniature dachshund owner myself, their little pooches had my heart the second I arrived. It took a lot of personal restraint to not take them home with me. There are a lot of photos of them and I’m not sorry about it.
