Betty and Ben were married along the shore. It was a beautiful day in Port Jefferson, Long Island, when these two said, “I DO!” The day began with preparations in the bridal suite.
Betty and Ben shared a first look before the ceremony. They met on the boardwalk along the harbor with such a sweet embrace and just a few tears of joy.
Betty and Ben are both photographers, which made me super excited that they wanted to work with me!
Betty shares, “Ben and I met in the library in the photography book section (obviously!). I was putting books away and he was in my way. We saw each other at school about six months later and remembered meeting, and the rest is history. He proposed in our apartment one night after work, very low key. We both wanted a casual wedding, something relaxed and on the water. I am from the north shore of Long Island so Port Jefferson was a perfect spot, and the small town really reminded Ben of where he grew up in Massachusetts. The ceremony outside at Danfords was the most beautiful attraction to us, especially with all the flowers hanging for Mother’s Day weekend. We had the most gorgeous day imaginable. Ben even managed to take a Polaroid photo of us to add to our collection!”
What a CUTE flower girl! And Betty, you look STUNNING!
The reception took place inside the Danfords Hotel with wildflowers and sunflowers on every table.
The couple shared their first dance to This Will Be Our Year by The Zombies.
Congratulations Betty and Ben!
