Nicole and Jarred are married!

Adam: Nicole and Jarred’s wedding was an explosion of rural panache meets tradition. Everything that you would expect from a wedding was there but they made it distinctly their own.  Even when it wasn’t obvious Nicole and Jarred owned their day with an array of small details; for instance, all the guys were rocking camouflage vests underneath their tuxedos and the bride was wearing cowboy boots under her dress.  There were also the large details. The venue for instance was Hayloft on the Arch in Vernon NY, an awesome location to have a barn wedding with a small chapel right on the grounds for the ceremony. There were other things of course the food was barbeque, the cake sat on a custom made cake stand made from raw wood and the wedding favors where coasters made in the same style. But the attitude and energy was durign the day and into the night was pure fun and excitement. Check out the images below.

Jessi: Nicole and Jarred are married! Talk about “short and sweet” and “tall and handsome!” This adorable couple had such a unique and beautiful wedding with a theme that matched their personalities absolutely perfectly. With so many personal touches, from the bride and groom, as well as their families and friends, this wedding was truly touching and remarkable! Congratulations to Nicole and Jarred!

Julie and Christian married!

Adam – Germany, at least the part of Germany that Christian and his family traveled from is miles is about 3784 from upstate New York  It’s a tribute to the love between Julie and Christian that he and his family are traveled all that way to be married in a small Chapel in Chadwicks New York and that Julie is going to Germany with her family to have a German ceremony. The awesome amount of travel, planning two weddings and handling all the cultural differences could have been a distraction for anyone. Anyone but Julie and Christian that is who seemed to be on a romantic cloud the entire day. Everytime they looked at each other they would smile, hug, kiss and just steal moments between each other. During the wedding day we sort of took Christian for a inadvertent tour of Utica, including such sites as the Stanley Theater and Forest Hill before finally ending up at the lovely reception at Valentino’s in New Hartford where I learned that the YMCA is not as ubiquitous in Germany as it is in America.  Good luck and safe travels to the newlyweds Julie and Christian.

Jessi  -  Julie and Christian’s wedding was unlike any other. Not only did two families become one, but two families joined between the distance of continents and countries that many of us may never have the pleasure of experiencing. When I heard the story of a girl that traveled abroad and found a wonderful man with whom she fell in love with and would then marry, it sounded like a fairytale, but this was more real than one person can describe alone. Not only was the story and and day magical, but I had never experienced self written vows until this day and it brought tears of joy to my eyes even as an outsider, knowing very little about Christian and Julie’s lives. It was a pleasure to be able to photograph and share this special day with Julie and Christian as well as their families. Wishing you a lovely, happy life together! Congratulations!

Bridget & John are Married!

Adam: Bridget and John, their families and their friends all came together on a warm saturday to see this happy couple married at Our Lady of Lourdes in Utica New York. Both the bride and groom had a sort of nervous/excited energy about them as they prepared for the ceremony that would unite them as husband and wife. Seeing John and Bridget at the alter smiling at each other and forgetting about everything but each other for a moment was truly beautiful.

From the ceremony the wedding party headed to Vernon Downs in Vernon New York for some pictures which ran the gamut of formal, fun, silly and romantic. After that the vinyl started spinning and the party began. Congratulations Bridget and John!

 

JessiWhile photographing Bridget and John’s wedding, Adam uttered the word “magic” while behind the lens, and that is exactly what this wedding was. I couldn’t be happier just knowing that I was a small part of a union so significant. Even though clouds were threatening, they weren’t about to rain on this parade as the skies opened up to beautiful, captivating clouds that made these photos even more magical on this bright, lively day. My best wishes to John and Bridget as they continue their journey as a married couple!

Sarah & Alan are Married!

Sarah and Alan’s wedding was beautiful. and certainly an event that was fueled by love between the two newly weds. I think it would be remiss not to mention the bride and grooms family who really came together to make this event special.  The day itself was beautiful, sunny and warm up until dinner when a crazy summer storm rolled through. By that time the party had moved inside and what a party it was. Dancing, carousing and at two points a little double-dutch with light-up necklaces until the end of the night. Please take a look at the photo below. Good luck Sarah and Alan!

Kayla & Alex are married!

Kayla and Alex’s wedding began as a lovely event and became steadily more lively. The preparation and the ceremony were  fairly traditional but it was after the ceremony that the real fun began. The wedding party was as wild a bunch as I’ve ever seen and they had me smiling all through the portraits with their antics. The reception was incredibly fun for me as an observer and I’m sure for all the guests as well. Thank you and congratulations Kayla and Alex.
