Ok folks its no stoppin’ over here! You ready for another wedding that was off the chain? Thought so! Ok so lets hop right into this May 19th 2012 wedding of, Heather & Mike. Big Joe and myself set the day off at different locations. He began at Heather’s fathers incredible home with the fellas and I began at the Springwater Bed & Breakfast in Saratoga Springs with the lovely ladies. I suggest you all check out that place because it sure beats the hotel rooms! On the scene again was wedding coordinator Christine Wheat. This May we shot 6 weddings and 5 of them have been with wedding coordinators! LOVE IT! After both myself and Big Joe finished at our locations we met up at Saratoga National Golf Club to find a stunning ceremony tent by David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design. As always Mr David Michael Schmidt (because you must say all three names) brought his “A Game” and designed a wonderful event for Heather and Mike. After the ceremony cocktails started flowing on the new terrace at SNGC. Some of the staff wore gondola outfits too(you’ll see below)! Once the party began myself and the film crew from Clark + Walker Studio waited for that good light and boy did we get it! I love the sunset shots from this wedding! Every time you turned your head there was a surprise or something wonderful happening. The fireworks were bananas too and of course the New York Players packed the floor! What a wedding! Heather and Mike, so happy to have been part of your special day. You guys are so fun! I hope your Mediterranean cruise treats you well! Congrats!

  1. Seriously cannot believe how behind I am! That’s what babies and working will do to you, huh?

    So, I looked these over so many times and always was interrupted before commenting. So let’s start with Heather. I got my dress at Something Bleu as well (LOVE them) and man, was it a great choice. Same goes for you – your dress is just perfect on you! Love the drop waist, and I love how the dress accentuates your teeny little waist! 🙂 Beautiful details. Your hair and makeup look just beautiful, and gotta love those shoes. I love the guys getting ready – what an amazing place! The tent shots are always nice… but I LOVE the shots around the grounds of SNGC. I mean, come on. The fence shot almost looks like it could mesh with her dress (EXTRA long train!), and the sunset pictures… wow, JP I could hear you screaming through the page with that beautiful golden/reddish light.

    Great work big joe and jp 🙂

  2. My chosen family : the MASHUTA’S 🙂 I was thrilled to see them all so happy on this very special day. Everything was done in the best of taste and the wonderful emotion at this event could not be bought. As an event planner myself for years ! this was amazing !!!

  3. WOW WOW WOW! Amazing, the photos are stunning and Heather is beyond gorgeous, so relaxed and happy! We could look at these pictures over and over and over…and probably will 🙂 We are truly honored to have been involved in such an amazing day and to have had to chance to work with Heather and her fabulous family.

  4. Really love the pictures of the tent before the ceremony, then during, then as the couple walks down the aisle married! Also, love this bling shot, lots of bling! Love the touches of purple & the bridesmaids dresses!

  5. Beautiful shots guys!! Thank you so much for grabbing all the details. I love the stitched shot of the room. And the ceremony tent looks awesome with our new pink runner.
