Megan & Art

We had been looking forward to this wedding ever since we had the opportunity to meet this incredible family over four years ago while filming Megan’s sisters wedding. When they got in touch again to see if we were available to shoot this April for Megan and Art we jumped at the chance. Both weddings took place at one of my favorite wedding venues of all time, the Otesaga Resort in Cooperstown. This magical place over looks a stunning lake and is located within walking distance to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Double Day filed , the birthplace of America’s (and my own) favorite pastime.  We started the day capturing Megan getting ready with her beautiful bridesmaids and watched her transform from a beautiful woman to a magazine bride. From there the vows took place in the same church her sister was married in and along with it all of those wonderful memories as well. It was an emotional, heartfelt and lighthearted ceremony that brought these two together as one. After the I do’s were said and the tears were wiped these two explored Double Day Field and took some great shots in the bleachers even catching a live game (and with it a foul ball to the hood of our car! Is that good luck?). The night was just as magical with the amazing views from the veranda overlooking the lake, guests dined and danced their way into the evening celebrating the new couple on a day no one will forget. Thank you and your incredible family for inviting us once again to capture such a spectacular day! We love you guys!!

Melisa & Neil

This was our first wedding of spring at the end of March. I thought our last wedding in February would be the last with snow but this day took us by surprised and sprinkled down some spring flurries! It was beautiful though and warm enough to be outside for a short while with out a jacket which lead to some great photo and video footage of this sweet couple. I absolutely loved the animal theme they had going for their table markers and place cards and that amazing cake topper with the adorable mice! It was such a sweet, sweet day at the Canfield! Thank you both for having us there to capture you day !

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!
