Erica & Jeff, September 22, 2017, Saratoga National
Erica and Jeff’s wedding day was nothing short of perfect. The couple got ready at Erica’s moms’ house. Let me just say something quick about Erica’s moms, Christine & Lori; they were two of the most hospitable parents we’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Not only did they invite us to the property days prior for a lay of the land, but continuously made sure we had everything we needed, even sandwiches and drinks when we traveled between locations on the wedding day. Erica is a Bride who is very detailed and had everything laid out for us when we arrived. We got to work and the boys secretly entered downstairs where we went between floors capturing prep. After some unique gift exchanging, the couple had their first look outside the front door, and we spent some time on the gorgeous property taking the couple’s portraits and wedding party photos. Erica and Jeff have a dog named Blue, who ended up being quite a large part of their big day. Blue is the most well behaved dog we’ve come across and actually posed for portraits; no kidding, look below. We traveled up to Saratoga National Golf Course, where the couple were married under a tent surrounded by sunflower decor, beer barrels, and growlers; which happen to be something the couple enjoy together. After the ceremony, we spent some time on the golf course and got some killer shots and then the couple entered their reception. For their first dance, they SANG the song to the crowd, accompanied by the amazing band; the Accents. These two are very musically inclined and even later in the evening played with the band as well. It was definitely a party!
What an awesome day this was, Erica and Jeff. You two are an amazing couple and we are thrilled for the both of you. Congrats and many blessings to you both.
