We kicked off our 2020 Wedding Year in a big way.  We headed way up the Northway and drove though some gorgeous winter roads to get to Lake Placid, NY.  MaKenzie and Stephen’s Wedding day was at the Whiteface Lodge and  being our first time there, we were excited for the experience of shooting somewhere new.  We were really hoping for some snow, but instead mother nature gave us a very rainy January day.  We made use of many indoor spaces and even got the chance to head outside with the willing couple.  MaKenzie and her girls got ready in the Presidential Suite (upstairs), where good friend, Joanna from Lipstick N Lashes was finishing hair and makeup.  Stephen and his guys were downstairs in Presidential Suite (1st floor), and it was neat that we could be between both places without the couple seeing each other, as they opted for no first look.  We had some time with MaKenzie and her girls for photos and then got her back in her room to grab Stephen  and his guys for their photos.  The ceremony took place in the beautiful Kanu Dining Room with it’s grand window overlooking Whiteface Mountain.  It was such a pretty ceremony.  After the couple were wed, we did some quick family and wedding party pics and then spent some time with the couple.  At this point, the sky opened up to lots of precipitation, and since they were willing, we covered them in a huge white umbrella and got a pretty amazing rain shot.  On property, there are two log warming huts that were a blessing for some more photos with keeping the couple dry.  I’m not going to say that Keith and I came out dry through, but it is the price to pay to get the shots.  Their reception was held inside the Whispering Pines Ballroom and DJ Mark Brenneisen played their first dance and they danced surrounded by all of theirguests.  It was such a busy day but really flew by and we are so happy that we got the chance to create some magic with this couple.  Thanks again MaKenzie and Stephen for choosing us to capture your big day.  Congrats again guys!
