OK, so I woke up this mourning to a little snow… don’t freak out, I said to myself, I believe in Spring! So because “Spring” is on pause today, I decided to go back in time and post some weddings that we photographed this past winter. Winter weddings are becoming more popular than ever before and couples can see that a professional photographer can capture & create great images anytime of the year.
So I am turning back the clock today to February 19th, 2011, where we had the honor of photographing Brigitte & Chris’s wedding at Longfellows Restaurant in Saratoga Springs, NY. It was a very cold day, the kind of cold that you feel deep in your bones but that was not going to stop Brigitte & Chris from having a great day.
Brigitte’s wedding dress was classic and it reminded me of something “Jackie O” would have warn. Her flowers were created by Briarwood Flower & Gift Shoppe in Ballston Spa and were the perfect size for her.
Brigitte’s Mom was there to share in the special moment and helping her daughter prepare for her big day. Her make-up was completed by Lipstick N Lashes and she looked radiant.
Brigitte & Chris decided to have a “First Look,” so that they could complete the formal photography and still be able to enjoy their cocktail hour. The bridge at Longfellows is the perfect spot for a Groom to see his Bride for the first time on their wedding day.
Once the Bride & Groom had a moment alone, we started to photograph the bridal party and you could immediately see that everyone started to have a great time. The guys joking and fooling around really helped with Chris’s expressions.
Should we dare to take the two of them outside on this bitterly cold day? We dare… and captured some great moments!
The image below was captured by Wanda through a hole in the wall. How cool is that!
They all loved to fool around for the wedding, here they sneak a peek at the bride eating a few crackers before the ceremony.
It’s that time… time to be married and commit your love for each other. The smiles on their faces tells the whole story.
I LOVE how Chris is looking at Brigitte in the photo below. This is what it’s all about!
Photos from a high vantage point make for some cool shots! Love these!
Some of my favorite images from their first dance, it was very romantic.
During the toast’s there were many memories and laughs and a few embarrassing moments for Brigitte & Chris… leave it to his Best-man!
The parent dances are always a favorite, I love these true emotion photos.
The night is not complete without a few dance floor photos, here is everyone getting down!
A kiss good night brings their great day to an end… but now they start a new life together tomorrow.
Brigitte and Chris were fun to photograph and we had a great time with them and all their friends and family members. Thank you for letting us be a part of your day!
