Kate & Dan

This wonderful couple was married at the end of January at the beautiful Franklin Plaza. I had only just spoken to them about two weeks prior when Kate was down to the wire and realized she wanted to capture her day in motion. We were excited to book a last minute January wedding, those are like unicorns in the wedding biz. The day was delightful from start to finish. The ceremony was sweet and heartfelt. The grooms own cell phone going off gave a lighthearted laugh to the nervous couple before the vows. Sealed with an excited kiss the couple were married as one and went on to celebrate the rest of the night surrounded by loving family and friends. Thank you guys for finding us and inviting us to capture the beautiful day! We wish you all the best of luck and love.

Mollie & Doug

If this wedding is any indication of what is to come in 2015, then its going to be a very good year! These two had hoped for snow on their big January day this year and boy did it deliver, covering them in delicate snowflakes for some remarkable wedding shots (for real head over to JP Elario’s blog post of this day for some knock your socks off imagery). The reoccurring theme for this day was pure romance. From the beautiful snow to the delicate white rose bouquet and the brides cascading lace vail – everything fit perfectly with this couples love story. I couldn’t tell it better then Mollie did herself when she said this about their relationship,

We met in high school in 9th grade. Doug would tease me in French class and advisory. He would argue that cheerleading wasn’t a sport and throw pencils at me. Teasing quickly turned into a fast friendship. We remained friends throughout high school even when Doug transferred to Albany Academy our junior year to play lacrosse. While we remained close friends, we didn’t start dating until senior year and we’ve been together ever since. We even survived 4 years of a long distance relationship away at different colleges.

Thank you and your incredible families SO much for inviting us to be a part of such a great and long awaited day, we wish you many many more years of being each others everything.

Cathy & Ken

There is something about snow on a wedding day paired with lots of twinkly christmas lights and a pops of bright red that really make a day stand out. Not to mention a hot chocolate bar complete with marshmallows that was so delicious and a much needed warm up! This day was SO fun. We loved working next to our favorite vendors (all below) and enjoyed everything from the bridesmaids adorable pajamas in the morning to the beautiful warm candle lit decor of the eve.  Also that adorable ring bearer who eventually did become my friend. This wedding was decorated perfectly for being the week before Christmas. I loved the warmth of the entire day, it made me just want to cuddle up next to someone and sip hot coco (which I actually did). These two make a fantastic and beautiful couple and we were so ecstatic to be there to capture such a wonderful day. Thank you so much!

Eddie & Leann

Where do I even begin with this day? Nestled in cozy Lake Placid surrounded by fresh white snow, an intimate gathering of family and friends spent the weekend watching Eddie and Leann tie the knot in a gorgeous ceremony that could have been plucked straight from the pages of an Adirondack bridal magazine. These two fell madly in love after college and were so excited to get married in the same place where Eddie popped the question. Eddie owns and runs a Jiu-Jitsu school and spends most of his time invested in his love of martial arts (hence why he opted for a tattoo on his ring finger instead of a traditional wedding ring). Leann is a teacher who also has a love and talent for exercise. She is an avid runner and yogi!  (Such an avid runner that she wanted to run a race the very MORNING of her wedding!!) Their love of travel, healthy living and spontaneity constantly keep them busy and entertained. We were so excited to be part of such a wonderful group of people and instantly felt like part of the family. After the ceremony took place, the newlyweds shared their first dance in front of the Christmas tree. When it came time for photos these two were troopers. Going all over the property outside in the snow, Leann at times with bare shoulders! One of my favorite moments was when Mark Mansky, a bird handler staying at the resort approached us and asked the couple if they would like to take some photos with his owl. Of course we all jumped at the opportunity and we all got to meet Tess the gorgeous Barn Owl. The night winded down with a mouth watering dinner served by the Lodge. Guests were seated in a private dinner room at a long tuscan table with a breathtaking display of candlelight and evergreens. After dinner and a few toasts, everyone ventured out to the fire place for dessert and s’mores, a picture perfect end to the whole day. This wedding was an instant favorite and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and work with these two incredible people.

Erin & Dave

We had a boat load of winter weddings this year, which always fills my heart with joy. There is nothing prettier then a brides white gown floating through snowflakes and snow covered grounds. It’s so peaceful, pretty and bright and it never gets old to me. The twinkling lights, the holiday decor the smell of pine, all things I get excited for when I think of a winter wedding and this one was no exception. Erin was referred to as a modern day Grace Kelly during the best mans speech and I have to say I agree. This couple was the epitome of a classic love story and I was so excited to be a part of this sweet beautiful day!
