Real Weddings: Kevin and Tara's Classic Long Island Wedding



Hello lovelies! I have this gorgeous couple's elegant wedding to share with you today, captured by Bri Johnson Weddings. The color palette and florals are divine! And the lighting captured throughout is exquisite, especially the couple's portraits!

Photographer Bri shared this with us about how the lovely couple met and their beautiful day:
Kevin & Tara met at a wedding where Tara caught the bouquet and Kevin the garter. The two have been together happily since and planned a beautiful wedding celebration at the Milleridge Inn. Tara and Kevin prepared for the day at their family homes in Long Island and then traveled to the beautiful St. Francis DeChantel Chapel to exchange vows. I then followed them to the incredible Planting Fields Arboretum where we spent some time taking photos. The gardens and mansion provided a beautiful backdrop for the couple and their families. From there it was onto the Inn for a night of dancing and fun.
