Christine & Kevin’s Wedding!

Happy Wednesday, friends!  I am so LOVING the start to fall weddings.  Fall is definitely the busiest season, a little crazy, but it makes these beautiful weddings all the more joyful.  Working with clients like Christine and Kevin are what make me seriously LOVE my job.

I met Christine and Kevin through a photographer friend of mine, and the first time I met these two I just loved them!  Christine is such a bubbly, warm and loving soul and Kevin a calm, kind heart and together they are so much fun!  They met in Syracuse, New York but now live in the NYC area where they live and work.  But when it came time to plan their wedding, they envisioned it in the beautiful Finger Lakes region!  And they couldn’t have had a more gorgeous day!

When I arrived at the cottage where Christine was getting ready, her romantic details and stunning gown were all ready!  I absolutely loved her soft color scheme!  Her bridesmaids were in the cutest robes, and we took photographs with them before Christine’s mom and best friend helped her into her beautiful dress.  We set up an amazing first look with her dad and then her bridesmaids, as she turned around and they had the best reactions ever!!  Christine was ready to go see her man!

Kevin was waiting for Christine under the willow trees at Glenora Wine Cellars for their first look.  He was speechless when he saw her, the moment was so sweet!  We then took some gorgeous photographs of them in the winery, and the lighting was simply amazing!  Their bridal party then came to see them and again, just loved all their reactions!  Christine and Kevin’s ceremony was outside under a beautiful floral arch, and their vows to each other made everyone teary – even his best man.  And then they were pronounced husband and wife – it seriously was such a JOY-ful moment! (A pun using their last name!)

They enjoyed cocktail hour with their guests on the patio, and when they were announced they ran through the crowd joyfully into the dance floor, where they had their first dance!  After also dancing with their parents, everyone went inside for speeches and toasts, where their friends gave some great speeches.  Christine’s father gave a funny speech as well, telling stories of asking for his own wife’s hand in marriage to her Italian family, and contrasting that with how calm and cool Kevin was asking for Christine’s hand.  Everyone ate their dinner and then went back out on the patio to dance the night away – and their band rocked it!!  From dance music to the Tarantella, everyone enjoyed their night!  Of course I took Christine & Kevin to take one night shot before the night was over – and it was so worth it!

I hope you enjoy Christine and Kevin’s story – I just love these two and their beautiful wedding!
