This Serbian wedding at Fox Hollow in Long Island, NY was spectacular on every level!
I loved being part of Marijana and Mitar’s Serbian traditions that started early in the day, when Mitar and his family had to come bribe Marijana’s family for his beautiful bride. After this tradition, which also doubled as a first look, the family enjoyed a late breakfast/early lunch in their home and shortly after headed to the beautiful Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Astoria, NY.
The decor and ambiance of the church was perfect, and it photographs so well if you know how to properly use professional lighting. Immediately following the ceremony we took the formal family group photos by the altar and then it was time to drive out to their Fox Hollow Wedding.
We had plenty of time for photos thanks to a perfectly planned out timeline, something I help all of my wedding couples with to make sure we have enough time for everything without rushing. Click here to see my tips and advice on how to plan a wedding timeline.
We had over an hour to spend on taking beautiful portraits around the grounds of the Fox Hollow wedding venue in Long Island – I would say this is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Long Island, NY.
Their bridal party was small, making things more intimate and less stressful to get through. The less people and moving parts there are, the quicker we can work as less time is spent on posing and setting up large group shots. I love big bridal parties as they are super fun, but keeping things more intimate like Marijana and Mitar did was great.
Following their outdoor portraits at the Fox Hollow wedding venue, we headed inside to the reception room to take ballroom photos before all the guests would start to arrive at the Fox Hollow. In my opinion these are a must, especially with such beautiful uplighting all around the ballroom and those stunning centerpieces and florals created by the incredibly talented James Anthony Floral. The cake deserves praise as well, created by Francescos Bakery in Hicksville, NY
It goes without saying that this couple along with all of their family and friends danced the night away Serbian style!
