Kelly and Simon’s Skaneateles Wedding

Monday, October 6th, 2008

What a fantastic way to end my season (in New York)… I was so excited to work with Kelly and Simon, we’ve been in touch for about a year, and they are such a cool couple -and blog-stalkers :D - that I’ve been looking forward to this for a while.

I knew it was going to be a good day when I met up with the guys at the lake house and the guys were getting ready to jump in the lake.  Yes, in October.  Yes, it was about 60 degrees.

They started the shower running before they went out to do this… ha ha!

Then I went to meet up with the girls at Hobbit Hollow, where beautiful Kelly was getting her makeup done. Love this shot of her listening to her bridesmaids.

Getting the veil in place… the veil was worn by Kelly’s mom at her wedding and was made using lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I love things like that!

Kelly takes a final look in the mirror, that’s her dad in the background. :)

This is so dainty, I love it.

Simon sees Kelly for the first time!

Love this moment.

Kiss!

They got to ring the bells, which I am a little jealous of.

This was so funny, Simon kind of paused for a picture as they exited the church and Kelly played along with it and started dragging him, ha ha!

Then we headed to The Lodge for the reception… Kelly’s dad grew all the pumpkins that decorated the church and the Lodge. Ah, I love fall!

And the award for Best Use of a Tie during Air Guitar goes to…

he he..

Portraits… we really had to hunt for some fall leaves, since peak is still a ways off, but we found some and I may have rolled around on the ground to get it (I admit nothing)!

This light was perfect for literally one frame, and we weren’t even posing yet!

Then it got brighter, but I still liked it.

Kelly does her best “stern” look, and it’s still adorable!

Buttercup :)

Ok, another reason why I love my clients… I was pretty far away from them at this point, hiding in the cattails, and I said “Ok, lean back a bit!” of course referring to Kelly, but Simon wanted in on it too… this totally cracks me up! I think Kelly liked it too…

And finally…

Have an amazing time in Mexico, I hope I got this posted in time for you to see it! I had a great time with you guys, congratulations.

Off to Vegas this weekend!

Rachel and Olivier’s Ithaca Wedding

Monday, August 4th, 2008

Ah, back to work after a few weeks off, and what a way to start!  Rachel and Olivier (or, Doctor and Doctor… seriously, I think almost everyone in the wedding party is, or will soon be, a doctor… infact, I think I accidentally became a doctor just from hanging out with them all day.  Good thing my initials are already MD)… anyway!  Rachel and Olivier were married in one of my favorite places in New York… Ithaca!

I headed down to meet the girls at Satori Day Spa… everyone was having a great time:

Rachel’s sister excelled at her Maid of Honor duties :)

I just love Rachel’s dress!

The ceremony was at Sage Chapel on the Cornell campus, it’s a really beautiful buildling.  I think Olivier’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time is one of my all time favorites… he got this huge smile on his face and was just like “Oh wow!”  It was so cute, and she did look quite foxy!

They are so cute together!

Olivier did a little dance move after being pronounced husband and wife, it had everyone laughing :D

A private moment after the ceremony…

Before we headed to the reception at the beautiful Fontainebleau Inn the guys wanted to do a Reservoir Dogs-type shot, I think they look pretty badass.

First dance!

The dance floor was rocking pretty much all night…

Ooooooooh, we’re halfway theeeere!

And some fun portraits…

Congratulations you two, thanks so much for having me!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
