It felt like winter was temporarily put on a hiatus here in Upstate New York to make Rachel’s and Sarah’s wedding day extra special! The temperature hit the 50 degrees mark, and it was great to enjoy the fresh air in the streets of Schenectady while Bruce and Wanda from Imagine Photography and Design led the photo shoot. Honestly though, I still would have been psyched to film this day even if mother nature had thrown a blizzard at us.
This was the first wedding I’d shot that featured two brides, and it was cool to see two sets of: bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, and wedding gowns. The first look ranked high on my favorite moments of the day, and it was a blast to capture Rachel’s and Sarah’s reactions when they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. They embraced as true soul mates and all the while looked amazing in their dresses.
After the photo shoot, it was off to the ceremony which was lovely, and then to the reception which was lively! Rachel and Sarah told me that their families would bring tons of energy, and they definitely delivered during the Tarantella and Horah dances. Credit also goes to DJ Vinny from NonStop Music for keeping the dance floor hopping.
What an awesome wedding to start off the 2014 season as well as to kick off the first post of this blog!
