Lauren and Chris’ Wedding kicked off 2014 for us. It was a very cold and VERY snowy day; which is so typical for January. If you are looking to get married and want snow, January has got to be your best bet! Even though travel through out the day was a little scary; everything fell into place and we seriously captured some AMAZING images!
The couple were married at the Delmar Reformed Church by Pastor Dave Corlett; who just so happens to be the same Pastor who married Keith and I over 13 years ago. It was great seeing him and catching up. The church sits on some very pretty grounds and we were able to do some stuff outside in the snow. Lauren came well prepared with a beautiful fur lined wedding cape that just finished off her gorgeous look. Both Lauren and Chris are definitely a bunch of goofs, and it was so easy to joke around with them. They have the best smiles and Lauren’s expressions are PRICELESS!
After their beautiful ceremony, we had a good 1-1/2hrs. to take some bridal portraits (this is unheard of; BUT WE’LL TAKE IT :)). We stopped by the NY State capital and I have to say, that series of images; some of our best!! We even ventured over through the snow and cold to the Plaza ice rink where a few brave skaters swirled around behind the couple. The snow really made those images!
The reception was held at Michael’s Banquet House where wedding coordinator Brandy was ready for our arrival. Chris is a HUGE NY Giants fan and you should have seen his homage to his favorite team in person. A huge NY Giants logo ice sculpture was the backdrop of the candy bar and throughout the reception, Chris donned a NY Giants Baseball hat. The party was super pumped thanks to DJ Nate Miller from Piano Man Productions. Keith and I even got out on the dance floor. If you know us, me (Meghan) always will sneak in a dance while shooting, but Keith; it is unheard of. Way to let loose Keith ;).
Lauren and Chris we had such a blast with you two! We loved spending your day with you and we wish you two continued love and happiness!
A quiet moment of reflection for Chris.
Could these kiddos be any cuter in these images?
Lauren was GLOWING!
LOVE that closeup of Chris adjusting his sleeve.
First Look! All the bridesmaids wanted to be on the side watching. LOL, the one on the right when they go back in is awesome!
Seriously Lauren’s expressions are hilarious. I love this collage. She wanted a drink from Chris’ flask. See the result below; LOL!
Lauren had 2 pairs of shoes, but ended up wearing those cute winter UGGS all day!
AMAZING! You would think we were in Europe at a castle.
Those skaters were troopers and really helped make the shot.
ONE of our FAVORITES. Look at all that snow coming down.
We even captured a tear
OMG, PRICELESS MOMENT!!!
OH YEAH; your favorite photogs! Meg laughing at Chris and getting BUSY on the dance floor. Keith doing a selfie with some party goers.
