Ali & Marc, The Lawrence Beach Club, NY
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck – in which case, Ali & Marc have a lot of it! After a meaningful ceremony in the gilded chapel of St. Thomas the Apostle Church in West Hempstead, the celebration moved to The Lawrence Beach Club on Atlantic Beach, where stormy winds and rain were beginning to roll in.
Under the dark clouds, we captured some sweet moments of the beautiful couple on the beach. Ali, wearing all-white Oscar de la Renta, was a stunning contrast against the moody skies. We loved the way the wind got caught up in her veil, and how the giant beach umbrellas offered a dramatic element to the setting.
The impending storm further added a sense of excitement and romance, and kept everyone cozy and close together. Sheltered by the white tent as the rain poured down, the lively crowd celebrated well into the night.
Just About Married wonderfully created an intimate event that perfectly accommodated for the weather – and Andrew Pascoe’s floral design added beautiful color and warmth. With fragrant orchids hanging overhead and loved ones all around, Ali and Marc had a truly memorable wedding day, and we were so honored to be a part of it.
Wishing you every happiness, Ali & Marc!
