Hey peeps! Sorry for taking long with this blog post. My intentions were to have blogged this early to mid week but to say I’ve been busy is an understatement. Anyway today’s awesome wedding features a Michele and Brian. What a fun couple! To say Michele was on cloud nine from the moment we entered the Adelphi Hotel would be an understatement. Can I just say how much I love shooting getting ready photos in that room? Seriously I wish more brides would use this place! I was like “Hey Chele are you ready?” her response was “I can’t wait to get married.”  For those in attendance her fathers toast totally nailed Michele’s enthusiasm. Back to the beginning though. You all remember this couple from their super cute fall engagement session right? Well nothings changed since then, Michele and Brian are still crazy about each other and did nothing but smile during their beautiful October wedding. Their ceremony was just beautiful! We shot with videographer Philip Coltart and his wife which was a pleasure. Philip had his crane setup going on. I can’t wait to see what this guy does with that footage. Then the party was in the hands of Mr DJ Paul Malo on the one’s and two’s. It was an instant party right from the entrances. Michele and Brian entered into the room to “It takes two” by Rob Base. What an entrance! It set the tone of what type of party was in store because that dance floor was packed all night long. They had easily on of the most fun receptions to shoot all season. I just love these two and can’t thank them enough for choosing us to capture the memories. You’re a wonderful couple and your love or each other shows in these images. Congrats guys!


The dress..

This room is so so good for shooting getting ready stuff in!

You’d be happy too if you looked this great on your wedding day. Seriously though this smile never stopped!

On the porch.

Brian is crazy about this bar at the Hall of Springs. We had to do the guys shot there! Not a Yankee fan in site either 🙁

Love these two next to each other.

All the light reflecting into the windows is just gorgeous.

Mr. & Mrs…

This is a fun little collage of some of the emotions that take place after you walk down the aisle.

Hey ladies!

Oh the light!

My facebook teaser..

I could have shot into this light all day

But whats a fall wedding without some color?

I love this image.

  3. Chele & Brian ~ This was by far one of the best days I have ever had. Being friends with Chele since we were 10 you can imagine how many times we talked about this day and then finally it was here. I wish that day never ended. The bridal party woke up that morning to Chele dancing to “going to the chapel” and “it takes two”. It all made sense when her and Brian came out to “It takes two”! The whole day and exeperience was unbelievable and I am so proud to have been able to be a part of your special day. I have never seen two people more in love and happy! I agree with Cath, can’t wait for JP to photograph the baby pictures! I can’t wait to see the rest of these amazing pictures. They really capture the entire mood and event!

    Michele and Brian – I remember looking at your e-photos… looking back at them now I see it was posted a little under a year ago. Beautiful fall e-shot and wedding now. You guys look spectacular. Michele you were just aglow in all these. I love all these shots, you two look so happy. I love the pic of you in the mirror – every bride has that moment where she looks at herself and goes “Oh my God!!! That’s ME!” I love the Mr. and Mrs. shot… the shots into the light, and the ones against the colorful trees and the bench. Sooo yea all of them. 🙂 Awesome energy for the first dance and entrance… LOVE the HOS, this just looks like such a beautiful wedding. Everyone looks spectacular, bride, groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen. Love the feel of a beautiful fall wedding. Congrats to the happy couple!!!! 🙂
