Raise your hand if you’re ready for a new blog post!! Yay! We’re slowly easing into wedding season here. If only the weather would ease into spring time we’d be all set. In this post I’m featuring Jamie & Chris. Don’t you just love these guys? You remember them right? Remember? I shot their fall engagement session in Vermont. Anyway, Jamie and Chris have that thing about them. You know, like you just want to hug them. They are a totally fun and happy go lucky kind of couple. While picking images for this blog all I did was smile….

Moving onto March 25, 2011… It was a little chilly, not going to lie. Walking into Jamie’s parents home I felt like I was going to set sail from the wind! That was all good though because we had a house full of pretty ladies that just got the Make Me Fabulous treatment from Alayne and her crew. I Love Alayne’s energy, she’s great to have around at weddings. So is Al Woodard! Have you seen the sneak peek he already posted from this wedding? It’s off the chain. One more rockstar vendor Jamie and Chris had on their team was Fleurtacious Designs, stunning florals on this one! After a session at the house it was off to the church to catch up with Chris & co. Once that knot was tied we headed to Glen Sanders but I wanted to stop at a new spot and take some images of just Jamie and Chris. Man was it cold and windy!! I’m so happy we all stuck it out because the light, color and location was just awesome. Now it’s time to party and once Paul Malo started playing tunes it for sure was a great evening. We had all had a blast. We’re so thankful to have couples like Jamie & Chris! We love you guys. I hope Palm Springs is treating you well.

    Congrats to both of you!!

  7. I feel like I have been reuinited with an old friend I haven’t seen in a long time in this post. I keep going over it again and again for some reason, just like you Mona . There is something truly special about these photos and this couple. I so missed you Big Joe and JP over the winter and Jaime spending the day with you and you family was very near and dear to my heart for many reasons! And can we just talk about how stinkin’ cute Chris is!! Love his expressions. I hope to see you all againvery, very soon!

  8. This is the sweetest wedding!! Love everything about it. That dress is amazing by the way!! I call the secret location “Schenectady’s Alamo” Hee!! I did a little photo shoot this past summer there. It was a really fun place! The pictures came out amazing!! 🙂 Congrats!

  9. Ok, I love EVERYTHING about these pictures! Everything! It was such a special, amazing day filled with love and these pictures captured exactly that! Jamie and Chris have been so excited to see these pictures and I know that they were nothing but pleased with every single one! JP, you are fantastic and so is your father! Such a pleasure meeting you guys!

  10. What a shoot. Love all the photographs from the start details to the end. I love that location specially that old gate, old walls and that great car..great place to shoot man.

    The pano of reception area is fantastic, well done.

  11. Well this was well worth the wait as we continue to ring in the spring season. Sorry for the late post folks, was busy celebrating my husband’s big 3-0 🙂

    And so I must say, these photos are absolutely beautiful. I can’t tell what exactly makes Jamie and Chris jump out at me so much. Sure, I know them from their e-session (and I love the fall as you all know)… and sure, they look absolutely amazing. Guys, you really do. But it’s more than that. Is there even one moment where their faces are anything but enamored and alight?

    Jamie – your dress – custom? I love the details, the asymmetric shoulder, and it fit you like a glove – such a perfect fit, and you look so incredibly elegant. Chris couldn’t look happier to see you coming down the aisle…

    I LOVE the cake topper. Seriously, HOW did you get it to have your gown? Adorable. Love it. And the hanger – always a good touch. Glen Sanders looks great (seriously, since that renovation, those floors are just tops). It all looks amazing. Your A-team did not disappoint… fleurs, vid, makeup (MMF!!!!) and of course photography.

    (Ok this is getting a little long, but I really enjoyed this post. I *may* also be a little zealous due to some serious dinner/wine celebrating)

    That said, I did love these. Congratulations Jamie and Chris! Big Joe and JP —–> beautiful stuff as always. Love how crisp everything looks. Windy? You would never know to look at these pics

  12. beautiful…gorgeous…the love, the happiness… i don’t remember Glen Sanders being that gorgeous… Congrats to the new couple!!!!!!
