Summer Wedding at Lingrow Farm
Photos from Marina and Tony’s lovely early summer wedding at Lingrow Farm.
Getting Ready in the Farmhouse
The farmhouse at Lingrow is a great space. It has such a wonderful feel to it with sunlight filling the rooms. Here Marina has her makeup done.
Meanwhile Tony was outside giving shoulder rubs to the guests as they arrived (Lisa’s photo below)
The first look was impromptu when Tony came into the room where Marina had just finished getting her gown on.
It was a lovely moment with Marina’s mom Nancy looking on.
Ceremony by the Pond

Marina and her dad Frank waited in the lower level of the barn for their turn to walk down to the pavilion.

The ceremony was really lovely and personal. A friend wrote the score for the processional and the couple surprised everyone by exchanging their vows through a vocoder voice synthesizer. That was a new one for me!
Exchanging the rings proved to be a challenge for both of them.

The couple stopped at the top of the hill for a moment just after the ceremony.
I love the bright colors and light on the back porch of the farmhouse.
Reception in the Barn
First dance (Lisa’s photo below)
Marina’s dad’s speech was pretty athletic!
But it was definitely entertaining (Lisa’s photo below)

One of the couple’s young guests ran through the field as the crew prepared the fireworks display for later that evening.
One of the guests came up with an awesome and original tribute to the couple.
Tony danced with his mom.
This brave guest patted one of the farm cats on the head. From the looks of this cat, it gets into a fight every night and loses a lot of them (Lisa’s photo below)
Both Marina and Tony are artists. Tony made the disco ball out of broken mirrors.
Fireworks and a Campfire
This fantastic fireworks shot was taken by Lisa.
There was a campfire for the guests to enjoy. Tony’s dad spent weeks soaking pine cones in different salt solutions so that the flames would be colored. It was a very interesting effect.
Marina and Tony had dozens of these multi-colored lights spread out on tables all throughout the reception. I thought it’d be an interesting element in a portrait if I gathered a bunch of them together. I think it worked out pretty well!
Lingrow Farm is always a great place for a wedding. Check out this wedding that I photographed there.
