Nicole & Dan, Courtyard By Marriott Lake George, September 20, 2019
Nicole and Dan are a fun couple. So much fun that they shared a celebratory Tequila shot directly after their First Look. The day was filled with dancing, laughter and well, tequila. These two kept us smiling all day and even when little surprises like a guy in a red speedo photo bombed a shot, these two rolled with the punches and kept things hysterical. We started the day at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Lake George where Nicole and her girls were eating lunch when we arrived. We chatted it up with the girls while they helped us gather and shoot the details of the Bride. Meanwhile, Dan got ready in a conference room downstairs and our good friend, Michelle Dischaivo from Intuition Events was on hand to pin on the guys’ boutineers. Nicole got dressed and had an emotional first reveal with her dad. We then set up the first look for across the street down near the water. Meg walked Nicole over and right before their First Look, Nicole poured the two a shot of Tequila that they shared directly after seeing each other. We spent a short time down on the docks and the two had these neat wooden sun glasses that helped shade their eyes from the bright sun. A friend of the coupe who was staying at a neighboring motel, was lounging on the beach with some interesting attire. Of course we told him to run behind the couple when taking the shot. We then headed over to Shepard Park where we worked in the shade for the rest of the picture time. The couple were married inside the hotel and then guests moved to the cocktail space. We grabbed the couple after a bit of enjoying their cocktails and headed to the roof of the hotel where we had to break up a birthday party for some random guy to get a few shots with the lake in the background. His group were very accommodating and were such good sports that they even danced around the couple. Reception began on the second floor and guests were amazed by some energetic entrances and then got immediately on the dance floor for a party starter dance. DJ Nate and Channing killed it. Right after speeches, Mazzone set up 2 long tables on the dance floor and the whole wedding party joined in for a competitive game of Flip Cup. The ladies won! Everyone danced the night away and we ended the night with the guys outside for some cigars. What a day; Nicole and Dan. It was such a pleasure and absolute blast capturing your Wedding Day. Congrats again guys and CHEERS!
