Surprise Wedding! – Allegria Hotel in Long Island – Stacie and Brian

One by one, their jaws dropped.

Stacie and Brian’s family and friends thought they were attending an engagement brunch. After a small cocktail hour, which the engaged couple attended in regular brunch-wear, the unsuspecting guests were led to a room where they thought they’d be enjoying a nice brunch. What they saw instead, an obvious ceremony room where Brian stood wearing a suit, caused shock, joy, excitement, and happiness.

Stacie and Brian, when I met you both a few years ago, I honestly thought you were already married. Your relationship had such ease, and you were so clearly each others’ rocks. The way you support each other is inspiring! Clearly you love to laugh together, and to say your surprise wedding was a joyful success is an understatement.  I was honored to be trusted with the secret and to be invited to capture this incredible day.

Enjoy the sneak peek of photos, complete with an epic post-ceremony portrait session on the beach!

We cannot sing the praises of David Perlman enough. Most importantly he made us feel at ease during the entire day (and really the entire planning process). You can see it in our photos how comfortable we felt around him, sharing a very intimate and special day. We’re very lucky that we choose him as we not only have amazing images (and album) from our wedding, but also a new friend. - Evan S.
