When I met Lauren in her hotel room on the morning of her wedding, she seemed to have tucked away any stress and nerves she may have had into a little box and put it away for the day. Lauren was all smiles as the back of her sweet dress was laced and her white veil put in place. To say she looked angelic is an understatement : )
“I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” […]
Walking into the Ausable Club, on the morning of Molly and Ryan’s wedding day, you could almost reach out and touch the history of the beautiful lodge that was heavy in the air. The history of lodge holds a special place in Molly’s heart and made the day even more meaningful. Molly’s Great Grandmother celebrated her marriage by spending her Honeymoon at the Ausable Club and her Grandmother was married in this special place nestled within the Adirondack Mountains…
Liz and Eric love spending long weekends in the Adirondacks hiking, and exploring the high peaks together, so it was only natural that they would decide to have their wedding day celebration in the Adirondacks!
He stood beside her, as they waited behind the thick wood door of The Whiteface Lodge. Inside the excited cheers of friends and family echoed through the room as their grandparents entered the reception. The band announced their families, and then the last of their wedding party danced into the Whispering Pines to wild applause. They were next, his beautiful bride, his wife and best friend, by his side. “And now for their first appearance as Mr. and Mrs. Laverty…” echoed through the grand lodge, and they stepped through the doorway, hand-in-hand and side-by-side, as they would be for years to come…
We waited together in the hallway, Lauren doing one last look into the mirror, as we held our breaths. The excitement and hurriedness of the day slowed and softened into steadied breaths. Slowly we heard the door open at the end of the hallway, and her father, her cheerleader, her constant rock stepped out to see his daughter dressed in white. With tears in both there eyes she walked towards him, today was the day he was giving his daughter away…
Summer seemed to come late this year to the mountains and we are all a little wistful as we say goodbye to the warm evenings by the lake. I love everything about summer in the Adirondacks; maybe when it cold and snowy for so many months in the North, we cherish our summers a little bit more. Sabrina and Shai’s portrait session captured the essence of summer from the smell of damp earth after a thunderstorm to dipping your toes into the lake on a hot day.
Gabriele and Mike’s summer wedding at the Whiteface Club and Resort in Lake Placid was full of huge smiles and adventure! I love that we trekked up Whiteface Mountain for some super cute group photographs and stunning husband and wife portraits!
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor even touched, but just felt in the heart. – Anne Sullivan When Tori reached out to me two years ago, I knew immediately that I would love to capture her and Kyle’s wedding day. I had not seen Tori in years, but have […]
