Spending time with Elizabeth and Brian reminded me just how amazing it is to find that other special person to share your life with. They adore each other…but out of strength and stability. What I mean by that is they both have such an individual presence, a knowledge and appreciation of who they are within themselves that they can easily share themselves with one another. You just feel it when you’re around them.
Their Engagement session portraits are some of my most favorites to date because they are genuine, romantic, AND fun. Most of my sessions are though because those feelings are what I’m working toward when I’m sharing that time with my couples. But I think I like the pictures so much because I know how nervous they were before hand, and for them to see what I saw while around them was something they never expected. I love showing my couples how much in love they are though my pictures. They know they feel it, and they can see it in each others eyes…but to see them together that way is something we don’t normally get to see. It’s a very important time in our lives to capture…when we’re in love. ♥
As I made the drive out to Belhurst Castle on Seneca Lake, I was filled with excitement for their Big Day. The sun was shining in the bright blue sky, there was just enough of a breeze rustling through the trees, and the lake was shimmering like it was overflowing with diamonds ~ spectacular.
Elizabeth and her girls were finishing up at the salon ~ the staff did an amazing job; perfection! It was obvious how professional they were and how much they cared.
Just stunning. We made our way back up to the suite to relax and get ready
Three generations ♥
I said my ‘goodbye’s’ for now, and ‘have fun’s!’ and headed out to see the Groomsmen. They were all dressed, and having a great time…in the tub! LOL
Our Groom with his proud and adorable Dad (who later in the evening busted out the ‘robot’ move on the dance floor! )
Off to see the castle!
Working with the event coordinator, Carmen, is always such a treat. She is extremely professional, a sweetheart, and is always at least one step ahead, with happiness.
Here comes the beautiful Bride!
Family and Bridal Party portraits ~ the Ring Bearer, and Flower Girl are SO cute!
Wow, nice wheels! His dad drove his Packard especially for their Wedding day!
Time for toasts, dinner, and dancing the night away!
Quiet moment during dinner ♥
‘Raffael of ‘Paramount Sound’ did an amazing job keeping the dance floor hopping throughout their celebration!
I was SO excited to see a couple there that I knew! I had no idea they knew each other, and when I saw them, I ran right up to hug hello. I photographed their Wedding just a
few short years ago, and to see them so happy and having fun was a real treat. ♥
Incredibly beautiful wrap around diamond ring setting with a traditional band
Congratulations Elizabeth and Brian ~ what a beautiful and FUN celebration! SO happy for you!
Please check back in a few months to see their entire Wedding online.
I have also posted some of these photos on my Facebook page where you can ‘tag’ yourselves, or share them!
