isabel & dave: hall of springs

Yes sir! Here we go! It’s time for Isabel and Dave’s blog post! I’m pretty excited to share this one as Isabel is one of my biggest blog stalkers out there. I heard her husband Dave has been known to stalk as well 😉 I’d be willing to bet you remember them from their Lake George engagement session. It was one of my favorites from this season. As I mentioned two blog posts ago we had three weddings last weekend and Isabel and Dave were wedding three of three. Thank god for Red Bull 😉 Nah, the energy at this event was all we needed to keep us awake.

I must say the weather was just awesome on Sunday September 18th 2011. We arrived at Isabel’s parents home to find 3 coordinators on site. Thats just how Christine Wheat rolls. Thank god for coordination because we ran on time all day long! Now, we all know Isabel is beautiful without trying but throw in Alayne of Make Me Fabulous and her beauty goes to a whole new level. Speaking of beauty, there was a stunning gown waiting to be worn and a house full of family waiting to see the bride. Once Isabel was in and ready the music started and she headed down the stairs. There were so many gifts, hugs and kisses being handed out all we did was shoot like crazy. There was a lot of love and excitement in that home last Sunday. Then it was time to get married. Dave waited patiently for his bride to arrive. I’ll add that she arrived early. Maybe because she was that excited to marry him or maybe because wedding coordinators rock! After the ceremony and many many family photos we were off to the Hall of Springs. Actually, every time we thought we were done taking a family photo I’d hear from Isabel “just one more picture”. It became pretty funny and we all had some good laughs about it. Cut to the Hall of Springs, it was decorated beautifully by On Thai of Surroundings Floral Studio and ready for a party. Boy do the Armenian’s party! If they weren’t on the floor dancing to City Rhythm they were dancing to the Armenian band. It was seriously a non-stop party! I had a great time setting the weekend off with Cheryl and Amanda from CASL Productions and even more fun working with them again on Sunday. Mad props and thanks to Hayden Yund for holding down the Elario Photo Booth too! Isabel and Dave, I love you both. Thank you so much for choosing the Elario boy’s to capture the big day. You guys are an awesome duo and I wish you many many years of love!


Here’s one from their engagement session

Bling! Bling!

The gown. Isabel was crazy about the detail on the back. It was fly Iz!

Isabel hooking me up with Red Bull. I love that stuff, it gives me wings!

Alayne doing her thing..

Seriously all she did was smile once that gown as on.

I call this Alayne’s concentrating face. I have a whole folder of these.

Watching her walk down the stairs was so fun.

I think her cheeks hurt because she NEVER stopped smiling..

Why not one more?

Yup, it was that nice of a day.

The handsome Dave. Good job on the tux and tying your own bow tie. All men should know how to tie a bow tie.

Seeing his bride..

Mr & Mrs… Later in the night Christine Wheat asked me what my favorite image of the day was. I told her this was because the excitement and joy in their faces. I could feel it through the camera. Sure its a basic standard shot but I know just how happy the both of them were so thats why its my favorite.


Wow.. the sky!!

Often I’ll ask a bride and groom to look at each other. I didn’t have to, they could not keep their eyes off each other.
