Jackie & Jason

 The Otesaga Resort & Hotel, Cooperstown, NY, February 3, 2018


Hitlin Photography Inc. kicked off our 10th year of business with the wedding of Jackie and Jason at the beautiful Otesaga Resort and Hotel in Cooperstown, NY.  The night before, a fresh blanket of snow fell on the ground and as we drove to Cooperstown that day, it was like a winter wonderland.  The Otesaga is typically closed this time of year, but opened for the couple’s nuptials and another event a few days later.  It was like Jackie, Jason, and their wedding guests had the entire hotel to themselves.    We met up with videographer and good friend Mackenzie of Mackenzie Lee Videography and got to work shooting prep and details.  Jackie and Jason had their First Look in the main lobby. Being a brisk, winter day we then utilized many indoor spots and ventured shortly outside for a few portraits of Lake Otsego behind the couple. The couple and their family gathered together for a Ketubbah signing in a lobby parlor before their ceremony.  The couple were then married in a beautifully decorated ballroom with a chuppah adorned with gorgeous flowers designed by Mohican Flowers.  The interfaith ceremony was full of love, and some giggles here and there, and then after Jason stomped on the glass, they proceeded out of the ceremony.  We took advantage of Blue Hour and a few more shots near the lake and then entered an elaborate reception area lit with purple and pink uplighting, which made everything absolutely gorgeous.  The two danced the night away and even enjoyed a neat mirror photo booth by DJ Mike Reilly.  It was a lovely way to start off the year and Jackie and Jason were glowing the entire day.
