When Eileen and Kenny got engaged, they knew they wanted a romantic and elegant wedding that reflected their personalities and loved for each other. So they found the perfect venue at Whitby Castle, a stunning castle in Rye, New York. The castle’s breathtaking architecture and panoramic views of the Long Island Sound provided the perfect backdrop for their special day.
Getting Ready for the Whitby Caste Wedding
The day began with Eileen getting ready in one of the castle’s luxurious suites. She wore a stunning white gown with intricate lace details and a long veil to compliment the dress. Her hair was styled in a low bun with loose curls framing her face, and she carried a bouquet of white roses. Kenny looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt and black bow tie.
The Wedding Ceremony
The couple chose an intimate indoor ceremony in the castle, surrounded by their closest family and friends. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows and rings and sealed their union with a kiss. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a cocktail hour, where they enjoyed drinks and each other’s company while taking in the stunning views of the Long Island Sound.
The Wedding Reception
The ballroom was decorated with elegant floral arrangements and candlelight, creating a warm and romantic atmosphere. Eileen and Kenny’s first dance as a married couple was so sweet you could see how happy they were to be married finally. After their first dance, the couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious dinner, followed by heartfelt speeches and toasts from family and friends.
The dance floor was filled with laughter and love as the night went on. One of my favorite parts of being one of their New York wedding photographers was snapping photos of the couple and their guests as they danced the night away. Everyone was out on the dance floor, showing off their moves in a dance circle.
Eileen and Kenny’s wedding at Whitby Castle was a beautiful celebration of love and commitment. The stunning venue, the elegant decor, and the heartfelt speeches made their day unforgettable. As the night ended, the newlyweds cut their red velvet cake and shared one last dance to complete their special day.
