The photo above is a favorite image of mine. With two photographers, we can get this shot and still be ready for the “other kiss” – the spontaneous kiss the couple share after they have again walked down the aisle, this time together:
A close up shot of Valleri’s hands shows off her ring and the intricacies of her dress, as well as her gorgeous pink rose bouquet. The pink on white and pink on black color theme was carried throughout the details of their wedding.
This cake was made by Villa Italia in Schenectady. Regular readers of our blog know my obsession with wedding cakes. And eight months after the wedding, the photos remind me not only how beautiful the cake was… but also how delicious it tasted.
Riverstone Manor in Glenville NY is really great for photographs, with its stone walls, brick patios, stately centuries old shade trees and meticulously manicured grounds that gently roll down to the banks of the Mohawk River.
Valleri and Travis head in to their reception and make a striking black and white contrast to that green summer lawn.
More of that great black, white and pink! July in New York is known for its changeable weather, and it did start to sprinkle while we were photographing some of the groups. The ladies in the bridal party were good sports and used their bouquets to protect their hair until it stopped.
The overcast skies did make for good shooting, though! We took advantage of the nice even light to get some of these wonderful couples portraits. The pergola on the river is used for the outdoor ceremonies held here but also provides a background along with the river.
Here the bride peers through the intricately detailed train of her dress as her bridesmaids and mom help to bustle it (one of my favorite photographs of the night).
The rest of the evening was full of fun and laughter.
