Sandy & Kain’s Wedding at Oheka Castle
I’m excited to share the beautiful and gorgeous wedding of Sandy and Kain captured by wedding photographer Rebecca Yale.
Sandy and Kain’s wedding celebration at Oheka Castle was a gorgeous day full of elegant details and a celebration fit for royalty. From the absolutely stunning bouquet and floral arrangements from Avaflora to her gorgeous Monique Lhullier dress every detail was perfection! The love for each other and their big families was evident in every moment of the day and was a joy to capture for them. The day was full of beautiful Art Deco glamorous touches and since the grounds of the castle are so beautiful the bride used a neutral palette of ivory, gold and blush to let the venue show off. The ceremony took place at the church Sandy attended as a child and her father rode over with her in a vintage 1933 Presidential Packard before walking her down the aisle. After the ceremony the couples exited their church to a cascade of bubbles blown by friends and family- a modern and bird friendly alternative to throwing rice.
I loved that instead of big crazy favors that people end up throwing away they went with an elegant chocolate box from godiva and a beautiful letterpress note telling their guests that a donation had been made to North Shore Animal League, an animal rescue out on Long Island, a very important cause and one I happily support as well so that was a favorite little detail of mine!
I am a destination fine art wedding photographer based out of Los Angeles. I shoot reportage style with a romantic eye, looking for great light and beautiful authentic moments. My style is a mix of fine art photography and photojournalism. My real passion lies in story telling, and there’s no story I love telling more than a love story. I am a hybrid shooter, switching between film and digital because I love the beautiful tones of film and the speed and agility of digital. I knew I wanted to be a professional photographer since I was 10 years old, when I filled up a suitcase with film on my first trip to Europe.
I studied photography at University and worked as both a fashion and documentary photographer before finding my passion in weddings, which I find to be a perfect combination of the two aspects I love most about photography. I love the fantasy and romance that comes with fashion imagery and I find I can create that and art direct during portraits, but then I get to become a fly on the wall telling stories as I capture the ceremony and reception.
