It’s been a while since we’ve written about how much we love the Bourne Mansion. As Long Island wedding photographers and videographers, we’ve had the opportunity to capture many weddings at this memorable, unique, and elegant venue. The mansion is ideally situated in Oakdale, NY. It is a central location for your Long Island guests, only 90 minutes from New York City, and only 15 minutes from MacArthur Airport for out-of-state guests Aside from its prime location, the Bourne Mansion offers a traditional and classic setting featuring stunning landscapes, an expansive central foyer with a sweeping staircase, a one of a kind ballroom with ornate architecture, crystal chandeliers, and a large portico.

Laura & Dennis’ wedding was a celebration of love and joy, filled with laughter, tears, and unforgettable memories. The couple chose The Barn at Old Bethpage as their venue, which is just one of the most perfect venues for a rustic long island wedding. Their first look, ceremony, and reception all took place inside the barn’s elegant interior and we were there to capture it all!

Wedding albums serve as a physical record of the couple’s special day, a tangible reminder of the love, laughter, and memories that they shared with their loved ones. It’s an heirloom that can be passed down from generation to generation, and a storybook that will be treasured for years to come.
