Coe Hall arcades are now open!
You most certainly remember the arcades on the side of Coe Hall. This was the place for some artistic and clean images with editorial vibes. They were under construction for some time but they did a tremendous job. The location looks beautiful. You should definitely consider adding it to you photoshoot route.

Planting Fields ELOPEMENT
It is not the first time I’m happy to share beautiful couples’ images from Planting Fields. I don’t remember when was the first time when had this opportunity but every time I drive to Oyster Bay and it’s Arboretum it is adventures and full of fun experience. This time it was Ashley and Jacque who invited my for their intimate wedding with small group of their close family.
Coe Hall Intimate Wedding Ceremony
I think Ashley and Jacque made a great decision having inside and out of Coe Hall for themselves. Interiors are just spectacular. Afternoon light is coming softly through the windows and historical surrounding makes the whole mood of the place so much more moody. Dark shadows and soft light bouncing of the stone walls gave color that you can expect only in Italy or Spain. I was able to capture few portraits of the bride and groom before the ceremony. Them together, close walking down the corridor gives the feel of the new journey they are about to begin.
This Planting Fields Intimate Wedding Ceremony was short but very sweet. With social distancing of course. After that we took few family photos and went on exploring the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum.
Wedding Photos Inside the Coe Hall
If you gone have an opportunity to take photos indoors of Coe Hall you definitely should! I’m obsessed over the architecture there. You will feel the history in there as well as moody vibes. It is just so beautiful.
