I just LOVE photographing Weddings in Canandaigua … there’s something about the water and beach atmosphere that makes everything so dreamy. (beach photos later in the post) When I first saw Ellen and her girls getting ready at the Inn on the Lake I was immediately swept up with happiness. They were all so adorable and fun loving. There were two little flower girls too…the cutest little red heads you’ve ever seen. Ellens dress was sexy and stunning …just like her…just beautiful.
We quickly got ready and headed off to the church down the street. Canandaigua has amazing Cathedral churches along Main st. I love photographing them; so glorious.
The guests were starting to come in; the guys were getting their boutineers and everyone was so happy to see on another.
Our very excited Groom, David…looking especially handsome and was all smiles.
I always love it when something causes the couple to laugh during the ceremony. They’re just as beautiful if it doesn’t happen, but when it does, it’s just so cute and candid.
You may now kiss the Bride!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
We had a perfect blue sunny day for the receiving line after the ceremony. I know they can take a while to get through sometimes, but it’s so nice for the guests to congratulate the couple right away rather than having to wait hours sometimes before they see them again. It’s such a celebratory moment and I love capturing all the smiles after the ceremony.
We got through the formals in the church as quickly as we could because we were all excited to head off to the beach for the more casual and fun photos! And to pop the champagne! (not me of course)
The girls were extremely beautiful, and the guys were really really funny … so it made for a great time as we went through the formals…though they don’t really feel like formals when I’m photographing … we’re just having fun and getting the shots we will always want for keepsakes.
A bridesmaid and her husband share a private moment relaxing on the Adirondak chairs facing the lake…so cute!
After dinner and before it started to get dark, I quickly took them outside to get a few shots in front of the marina under the full moon!
Time to cut the cake!!
Now on to the dancing !!
Congratulations Ellen and David! Your Wedding was Beautiful and you are an adorable couple…it was an honor for me to capture these memories and details from your special day!
