Karla And Emanuele | Elegant Oheka Castle Wedding

filed in

As a wedding photographer, I have had the pleasure of photographing many high-end and luxury weddings at some of the most picturesque venues. But Karla and Emanuele’s wedding at Oheka Castle was truly something special. Nestled atop a picturesque hill in Long Island, the castle overlooks sprawling gardens and finely manicured lawns – making it the perfect setting for an elegant, luxury wedding like this one. Karla and Emanuele looked like they had stepped out of a fairy tale, and the castle and its lush green ground offered the perfect backdrops for their fairy tale-inspired wedding photos.

Karla And Emanuele’s Oheka Castle Wedding

Karla and Emanuele’s wedding was all about luxury and sweet love, and there was no better setting for their big day than the majestic Oheka castle. Nestled among sprawling gardens and verdant hills, the castle felt like a world unto itself, a place where time stood still. And considering how the bride and groom looked like they had just stepped out of a fairy tale, the castle was indeed the right place for their union.

Emanuele looked dashing in his wedding attire, and from his tuxedo to his shoes – every detail about his attire was laced in elegance and sophistication. Karla looked absolutely gorgeous in her couture gown and sparkling tiara and looked like a vision as she posed for her solo bridal portraits at the Oheka Castle. The balcony of the castle was the perfect place for her pictures, and indoors, the large windows offered the perfect lighting for more solo portraits of the stunning bride as she posed with confidence and poise.

The bridal party was also decked out in designer attire, making for a chic and picture-perfect wedding party. Every detail of the event was perfectly executed, from the flower arrangements to the menu selection to the food. I loved the beautiful tablescape and especially how the lavender hues perfectly complemented the regal setting. The centerpieces were simple yet looked so fantastic and seamlessly blended with the theme. The overall effect was one of understated elegance and luxury. 

Capturing Karla and Emanuele’s love in stunning couples portraits was such a beautiful experience. The two of them were being their true romantic selves while posing on the garden stairs and in the balcony. The way my couple looked at and interacted with each other the whole time was breathtaking. I could tell that they were truly madly in love. 

One of the most exciting parts of Karla and Emanuele’s wedding was getting to photograph them as they decided to ride off in a Bentley. That’s what gave me the chance to take some amazing portraits that were a true representation of “zooming away to a happily ever after!”.
