We hear this all the time, couples are looking for a spot that has natural elements but don’t always want to travel far or hike to get there. That makes total sense and that’s why the Old Westbury Gardens needs to be at the top of your engagement shoot list.
It’s easily a favorite of ours because it mixes elements of modern and urban style with elements of nature. A lovely walking path outlined by tall picturesque trees is a great place for photos. Not to mention the numerous gazebos scattered throughout the gardens. Most of them feature tall, skinny Roman-like pillars with a domed roof. Some have open roofs and some with a wired design on the curved top. Each part of the gardens has it’s own style and feel.
Along with the parts that stand out, like the trees and gazebos, there are plenty of intimate spaces on small walking bridges and next to partial stone walls. It truly feels like a walk in the park and is a really romantic place to be with your partner. If you haven’t already, put the Old Westbury Gardens on your engagement photos list so you can also enjoy these romantic locations around Long Island.
