Well what can I say about this wedding at Bristol Harbour in the Finger Lakes? There was the threat of rain all day, with sprinkles coming and going. There was an *achem* delay in getting the ceremony started. There was a gorgeous, however foggy view of Canandaigua Lake. And most important, there was the wonderful and touching wedding ceremony for Molly and Eddie.
There were more tears than rain drops, that is for sure. Molly’s Father gave a very touching and entertaining toast, which showcased his view of the beginnings of their relationship. I love hearing all of the stories about how couples get started, as well as the proposal. After all, by the time I see these two, it is near the end of the movie when everyone lives happily ever after. Aside from the humidity, the day was beautiful. Everyone seemed to enjoy the weather outside better than inside and the cloudy, moody sky was worth grabbing the Bride and Groom for some more images…
Oh, and take some fun and funky photographs we did! *sigh* I love love love my couples. Molly and Eddie floated right to the top after they handed me some of the funniest and silliest images! What a way to use a romantic sunset, than to do the cabbage patch and to wrestle each other. My favorite part was getting Molly onto the ground. Damp ground, mind you. She is so hardcore that she really didn’t care about the dress at all. And it paid off. I love those images and her dress was perfectly fine when she got up! Sometimes not worrying so much, is indeed the key. Who needs a Trash the Dress session, when I get my Brides to do more on their real wedding day?
Super duper special Thank You to the excellent, Mr. Patrick Luke, Certified Professional Photographer for being my second Photographer for the day. He came in handy more than a few times and I am honored that he would spend his Saturday with me. His images were a classic and timeless addition to my fun and candid overly fish eye way of shooting. He also made an excellent lighting guru for the day.
An even bigger Thank You to Molly, Eddie and their families for opening up to my camera, showing me the love that you all have to offer. With clients like you, I am continually challenged, grateful, honored, amused and blessed.
