The Creek Club Long Island Wedding

Bride and groom kiss on Long Island beach at Creek Club Long Island wedding

Stunning Creek Club Long Island Wedding

Perfect blue skies and oceans waves made for the most beautiful beach wedding in Long Island! This sweet bride and groom basked in the summer sun and their love for each other as they celebrated their gorgeous Creek Club Long Island wedding. This idyllic July day was filled with joy and excitement from start to finish!

Wedding Portraits at Private Long Island Club

The gorgeous grounds of The Creek Club made for the prettiest summer wedding photos! The lovely couple snuggled up in a classic red car for some fun portraits and a couple cute kisses! The bride and groom joined their wedding party under the trees for group wedding photos before making their way to the beach!

Long Island Beach Wedding Photos

I absolutely loved capturing these gorgeous beach wedding portraits! It was so sweet that the couple had time alone together before their wedding ceremony – one of the reasons having a first look can be a wonderful idea!

The Creek Club Wedding Reception

As the sky grew paler, the bright lights of The Creek Club beckoned friends and family inside for a fun-filled celebration! The room was filled with the most stunning florals: oversized bouquets dripping with fresh greenery and white and peach blooms. I loved the welcome area greeting guests as they came into the reception! The escort cards were displayed on a small faux putting green with little golf tees – such a fun touch! The bride and groom entered their Long Island beach wedding reception to applause and cheers from their loved ones. After their first dance, everyone enjoyed a night full of celebration!

Sunset Long Island Beach Wedding Photos

During their reception, this sweet couple snuck away for some sunset beach wedding photos. The pink and purple cotton candy sky reflected beautifully on the gentle ocean waves. The bride and groom shared excited cheers and sweet embraces as they took in the gorgeous view. After sharing a joyful kiss, the two joined hands and walked through the sand back to their lovely wedding celebration.
