On June 7th, 2014 we photographed the wedding of Andrew and Kylie Holland at The Lodge on Echo Lake. This venue featured a beautiful lodge overlooking Echo Lake, as well as quaint cottages for each of the guests to stay in. The facilities as a whole fostered an Adirondack feel, a signature of Upstate New York that we know and love.
Andrew & Kylie are definitely “Love Birds,” so I could not resist this photo of the rings.
The girls were all lively, excited, and beautiful. The homey cottage served as the perfect getting ready location. The girls, having already been styled, all gathered together on the couch to enthusiastically witness the finishing touches be added to Kylie’s make up and hair. The girls were noticeably excited for Kylie, as shown through their bright smiles.
The bouquets were extremely colorful! Kylie’s classic bouquet featured an assortment of different colors and flowers. The bouquets combined with the green, woodsy setting made for a very vivid scene. Kylie’s big, bright eyes sure did “pop!”
The Bridesmaids were fun to work with and made some crazy faces for me! I could tell it was going to be a great wedding!
Jay, Kylie’s Father, told us of a secret plan he had early on. Kylie had never before seen her Father truly dressed up. He thought if he was going to dress up, he might as well go all out! Jay surprised Kylie by showing up in an original, vintage suit. He was all decked out; he wore a top hat and carried a pocket watch. Kylie sure was surprised!
We met the groom near the beautiful ceremony location, overlooking Echo Lake. Andrew’s big family was full of character, jokes, smiles, support, and excitement.
Jay tagged along just to remind Andrew to never hurt his little girl!
Everyone was full of smiles. The genuine expressions captured below sure do justice to just how loving and supportive these families were.
The bride is about to walk down the isle and you could see the emotion that filled Andrew’s eyes… he is marrying his best friend.
I just love this photo!
Kylie and Andrew were blessed with lovely weather, complimenting such a wonderful setting. After the ceremony, the couple’s Corgis, Vixey and Kallie, sprinted to them and the bride and groom greeted them lovingly. They were the perfect add-ons to photos!
The girls kicked off their shoes for fun-filled photographs at the beach. We truly enjoyed working with such an entertaining bridal party!
Kylie and Andrew with their babies!
The grounds of Echo Lake were full of so much variety, making for a lovely assortment of photos of the couple on their special day.
The reception took place in the lodge itself, overlooking the lake. The colors were beautifully scattered amidst the venue.
The father and daughter dance is always a special moment, I love this image of them and Kylie’s eyes are amazing!
The crowd had a great time. The dance floor filled up more and more as the night went on. Tim Wedeman of Capital Disc Jockeys did a great job keeping the dance floor active.
We brought the couple out for a few sunset pictures on the lake. The light was a perfect ending to their day.
Thank you to Kylie and Andrew for giving us the opportunity to photograph your family, it was truly an honor and we loved every minute of your day. The Curtis and Holland families were smiling the whole day and as you can see from the photos in this Blog the reason why. We wish you both many years of happiness!
Imagine! what we can CREATE for YOU!
